Acupuncture and IBS 5/29/2011

I decided to seek help after suffering from IBS, as well as gluten intolerance, for three long years. After a stint overseas, I had developed a strong stomach sensitivity that led me to become gluten free as well as lactose free. It was at times tolerable and at other times paralyzing. I was left with little hope after going to clinical physicians who gave me no helpful advice. It was always the same story, you have an IBS and it is a chronic condition. Fortunately, after talking to a friend I decided to start investigating Eastern medicines approach to stomach woes. I found Deborah because of her many positive yelp reviews and felt that her holistic and natural approach would be beneficial. She approached my stomach issues through two avenues, acupuncture and a special blend of herbal remedies. My stomach improved rapidly and I felt the improvement within the first six weeks. I became able to eat out (as well as try new foods as long as they were gluten free). I no longer dealt with the chronic constipation. Today I am able to eat some dairy and my stomach is completely healed of the gluten allergy!! Deborah was kind, considerate and always attentive to my stomach abnormalities. IBS is a treatable condition but not from the western give it a prescription approach. Deborah truly understands how the body functions and how things like hormones, bacteria and stress all affect the body. I would recommend her to anyone with stomach issues, anxiety or other ailments. more

Pregnancy relief--both physical and mental!! 5/4/2011

I came to Melani at the very beginning of my 3rd trimester. At that point, I was experiencing some anxiety and my back was beginning to hurt. After several sessions with Melani, I am happy to say that my anxiety level has decreased significantly and my back pain is gone. On one occassion, I woke up one morning with terrible sciatica in my left leg--I could barely walk and was in a tremendous amount of discomfort. I called Melani and she was so accomodating. She fit me in for later that afternoon and there was instant relief after the session--it was amazing! more

Knowledge and Support 2/15/2011

Three years ago I was having problems staying pregnant. I would have positive pregnancy tests for a week, two weeks or longer and then soon I would get my period. These "chemical pregnancies" were very frustrating to my husband and I and my Dr's advice was to only to "keep trying". more

Pregnant with Acupuncture 2/15/2011

Thank you soooo much for everything. The acupuncture treatments and your counseling definitely helped me so much. You gave me the confidence and reassurance I needed when certain medical doctors didn't. more

Beautiful Baby Girl 2/15/2011

I had a lot of trouble keeping pregnancies, and subsequently, getting pregnant. When I came to Melani, I was exhausted and losing faith. She was incredibly constant, steady and intuitive in her perspective and in her prescription of herbs and acupuncture. I particularly appreciated her willingness to be open to our pursuing IVF. I found all that she gave us to be absolutely instrumental in our carrying our incredible baby girl to term. more

Acupuncture helped so much 2/15/2011

I have been seeing Melani for a number of reasons; relief with stress, depression, anxiety and IBS. It has been about more

Peaceful birth 2/15/2011

I could never say that the acupuncture took the pain away in the same was that I imagine an epidural would. And, Melani never claimed that it would. An unmedicated birth is an intense experience. But, it was most definitely a much more pleasant experience than my previous births when it was just me and my husband with a labor nurse and almost constant monitoring and checking. more

Easy labor 2/15/2011

I was induced on Tuesday and despite being prepared for the worst (!) I progressed quickly and had an easy labor and delivery (pushed for just 17 minutes)! I credit Melani with that! Last week was a stressful time and she was very kind and reassuring. more

Acupuncture for IVF - totally relaxing 2/14/2011

I had previously had acupuncture with a different therapist, however, even though said she had experience with infertility and IVF, during the course of my treatment and our conversations it became apparent that she was not as well versed as she claimed. Hence my switching to Melani, the difference was like night and day. Melani has received extensive training in all things relating to fertility and womens health including acupuncture during childbirth. Her experience and depth of knowledge was very apparent during my treatments. She had in depth knowledge of the medical procedures I was going through and the drugs I was on and knew exactly what specific acupuncture treatments I needed to do to aid my body. I am now blessed with beautiful twin boys! more

Irregular Periods 2/14/2011

Melani has literally healed a troubling condition I had of totally imbalanced menstrual periods. The endocrinologist and two gynecologists whom I saw had NO solution for me, except to cover up the problem with birth control. They are amazed at my recovery completely using acupuncture and herbs. more

Pregnancy Acupuncture 2/14/2011

I have visited Melani throughout both pregnancies. For the first pregnancy, she helped me get severe morning sickness to be manageable, and severe hemmorhoids to be minor. For my second pregnancy she is helping me with vulvar varicosities, and it's working! Thank you, Melani! You are a tremendous resource! more

Diet for Fertility 2/14/2011

My wife started seeing Melani to help get her cycle back to normal, so she could start ovulating again. In the meantime, we had found out that I had very low sperm motility - 38% and >50% is considered normal. So, I went in to see Melani and she took over an hour to talk with me about diet, lifestyle, sleep and other health related things to develop a customized herb formula to help fix the issue. She also recommended getting a little more exercise, less caffeine, and really simple diet changes to get more nutritional value out of food (such as eating breakfast every day, having protein with every meal). Everything was super easy to do and required minimal effort. After 3 months of these changes and taking the herbs, my motility went up to 66%, then the next month it was 72% (and I'm sleeping much better too!). Shows how simple life changes and some chinese herbs can drastically impact fertility. Thanks Melani for all the help and support! more

Acupuncture for Fertility 2/14/2011

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for well over a year. After a very brief introduction to infertility doctors and procedures, I was adamant to avoid this ?science project? world and try alternative methods. This is when I was introduced to Melani - thank goodness! I began a weekly treatment of acupuncture and Chinese Herbs and 5 cycles later I was pregnant! Melani?s expertise, kindness, and support could not have come at a better time and I am so grateful to have found her. She is wonderful to work with and I hope every woman who has trouble getting pregnant will consider seeing Melani for fertility acupuncture treatments. Thank you so much for everything!! more

Woo hoo! 2/14/2011

I had the baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!He is so sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!Thankyou!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! more

Didn't need to be induced 2/13/2011

Receiving acupuncture treatments towards the end of my pregnancy helped relieve much of the physical pain of the third trimester and prepared my body to give birth. My baby was 'late' and my OB scheduled an induction for me. However, a few closely spaced acupuncture treatments brought on my labor and I did not need to be induced at the hospital. more

Great Treatment 2/13/2011

I am immensely grateful I decided to give Melani a try through her overwhelming positive response from other clients. I wasn't sure exactly what I was coming for, or what I wanted out of it, but I am leaving this experience feeling benefited. Melani put me at ease from the beginning and I never felt like what I was saying sounded crazy as I often do with doctors when I try and describe to them what I think is going on with me. I do think I have an inner calm during this stressful time and I thank Melani for that. more

No problems during birth 2/9/2011

Thank you for all of your help and guidance throughout my pregnancy. I know our acupuncture sessions made a tremendous difference and contributed to my problem-free pregnancy and delivery (no c-section and most of my labor was spent at home!) more

I feel wonderful 2/9/2011

Melani helped me bring my smile back. My first meeting with her itself was comforting and assuring. Her treatment has helped me gain strength physically and mentally. I went to her stressed, in pain and extremely low energy, expressing that something was missing in me. I feel much more healthy now. I am so glad I found her. more
