I have received a relatively long term of acupuncture treatment in Dr. Li's office. The treatment covers the periods of pre-IVF, IVF and early stage of pregnancy. Based on my own research and my own experience, acupuncture treatment does help prepare my body ready for the IVF and also ready for the pregnancy. I feel extremely lucky to have Dr. Hui Li with me to go through this long and stressful procedure. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. Her acupuncture skill is fantastic. To tell you the truth, I started the treatment with fear and ended up with enjoying every 30 min. treatment. It is so relaxing and soothing. And the best thing is I delivered a healthy baby girl of 9 lbs. 8 oz..
Through her application of a highly effective combination of acupuncture and herbs, Dr. Li has brought under control (and in some cases completely alleviated) long-standing problems that would not be resolved through medication and/or surgery. I no longer need my inhalers for my chronic asthma, and my sciatica pain is well-managed. Under Dr. Li’s immediate attention and preventative care, any new medical issues are nipped in the bud before they have a chance to develop into big problems. I am now enjoying good health!
