"My patients LOVE Eliza – Acupuncture can provide a variety of benefits for patients before, during and after their pregnancy.  Prior to pregnancy I have sent patients to Eliza to help with cycle regulation and control of their uterine lining prior to IUI or IVF.  During pregnancy, acupuncture can provide a wide range of benefits for neck/back pain, sciatic nerve pain, to help turn a breech baby to the proper position for delivery, and to help get labor started, just to name a few.  Postpartum, acupuncture can help with milk supply.  These benefits are just a few of the many things acupuncture can help with. 

Eliza provides caring and compassionate treatment for my patients and they come away from a session feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.  Furthermore Eliza has done additional training to enhance her knowledge base of treating women during their reproductive years.  I highly recommend her to my patients!!"
