At Nest, our focus is on women’s health, fertility and pregnancy. We help you overcome fertility obstacles, gynecological issues, emotional stress and other conditions that may be affecting your life and overall wellbeing. In addition, we are here to support you throughout your pregnancy. We encourage open, thorough communication in a warm and inviting treatment environment, and give you the time and attention needed to express your concerns. Our approach is to combine the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with a detailed understanding of western medicine to provide a comprehensive approach to your care. Our intention is to support your overall wellness whether it’s in an effort to manifest an outcome, to heal, or both at the same time. We believe that your body, mind and spirit working together is your greatest strength. You have everything you need. We just give you a boost of support to make things work the way nature intended.

Although acupuncture is our main protocol, we feel that other aspects of TCM are just as important. Some adjunct therapies you might experience during your treatment at Nest include herbal supplements, nutritional support, lifestyle modifications, as well as other TCM modalities (such as moxibustion, cupping, massage, and Qi Gong).

Acupuncture for Breech Baby

This time-tested treatment is a combination of acupuncture + moxibustion to help turn a breech baby by relaxing your body and, well, we aren't exactly sure why this works. Though we do know that this treatment has been used empirically to turn breech babies for thousands of years with great success. We have found that, at the very least, these treatments can make a manual version performed by y... Read More

Though we do know that this treatment has been used empirically to turn breech babies for thousands of years with great success.

High stress and busy, modern lifestyles can contribute to hormone imbalances (cortisol, DHEA, glucose, testosterone, etc.) and adrenal fatigue or, in extreme cases, adrenal insufficiency (please contact your MD to get a blood test if you suspect that you have adrenal insufficiency).

Adrenal fatigue can manifest as insomnia, infertility, weight gain, moodiness, GI issues, anxiety, depression, fatigue, blood sugar irregularities, brain fog and so much more. By doing a simple saliva test, we can detect where the imbalance lies and provide natural and effective ways to get your body back online using diet, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, and appropriate supplementation.

This appointment includes an in depth interview that is similar to your first acupuncture visit, and you will leave with a basic nutritional plan, the saliva/adrenal test kit for you to do at home, and some mind-body techniques for getting a head start while we wait for your results.
