“This review is for acupuncture for pregnancy sickness. Nothing else worked for my hyperemesis gravidarum, so if you have HG or morning sickness, try this!
I had never tried acupuncture before and was unsure if I believed that it would really work. After trying various prescription drugs, ginger root, ginger tea, ginger chews, ginger ale, fresh lemon, preggie pops, sea bands, and essential oils I had lost 10 lbs and couldn't even keep down water. I called Dr. Roxy on a Thursday morning and she fit me in the very next day, assuring me that she could help treat anything that didn't require an ambulance.
SERVICES: the acupuncture was not painful at all; I get about 12-16 needles each time I visit but she customizes the placements based on what is ailing me most on that day: she helped me with my nausea and vomiting and ever since my first visit, I can drink water and eat more regularly. Even my doctor could see a huge improvement in my health and demeanor since trying acupuncture. After each visit, Dr. Roxy gives me two "leave-in" tacks in each wrist to keep my symptoms under control in-between visits. This has been a real lifesaver and I would recommend that anyone suffering from pregnancy sickness or other discomfort, sickness or pain”. – Shaina F
