I have never seen a psychiatrist or therapist, considered myself a fairly well adjusted person, I never considered working with an acupuncturist before. But I felt a connection with Angela. She possessed an energy to her that was so real, genuine, and supportive. I decided to book an appointment with her and since that day, she changed my life. Our first appointment, Angela asked me about my life--not fertility, not physical issues, but my life in general. I shared with her my thoughts about family, work, friends, how I approach relationships, perceive myself. Angela took every word I said to her and for lack of a better way of saying it, unleashed my potential.

When I first met Angela, I was trying to conceive after having had a miscarriage 6 months prior. As the months slipped away and I wasn't getting pregnant, I decided to explore Western and Eastern approaches simultaneously. I had already met with two other well known acupuncture practices in NYC before coming to Angela but felt they were impersonal and overly “corporate.” At my very first meeting with Angela, I was immediately impressed by how warm and empathetic she was. She took a genuine interest in me as a person - not just as a patient. Over time, she became an invaluable sounding board and incredible support system for me as I navigated the infertility treatment maze. The process can be incredibly stressful and Angela’s calming presence combined with her acupuncture skill made a world of difference to me.

I had been seeing an acupuncturist during my other cycles, but was feeling unfulfilled.  He did not ask me many questions before our sessions, nor did I understand what he was doing during them.  A good friend was also doing IVF and told me wonderful things about her acupuncturist, so of course I gave it a try. When I first met Angela, I was encouraged by the time she spent talking with me and getting to know and understand what I had been going through, both physically and emotionally.  Even though I had a beautiful baby boy at home, the desire to have another baby was no less than it was the first time around.

I came to Angela’s practice just about a year ago after trying to get pregnant for about 2 years. I had 2 children already, but felt strongly that I would like to have another child. The specialists were trying to steer me toward more intervention, particularly IVF, but I was pretty sure that I did not want or need to go that route. I started meeting with Angela for acupuncture and some herbal treatment, but most importantly we discussed and tried to figure out why I was in this place where my body would not allow me to get pregnant. I think this was the most important work that we did by far.  Ultimately, through talking about my life and experiences, we came to the conclusion that I was stuck somehow and needed to, in effect, “birth” something for myself. I needed to find something for myself, or at least get myself on that path, in order to get myself moving again.

I started off with the midwives at Full Circle Family Care, and they referred me to Angela. Initially, I was hesitant, but was soon very open to it upon observing Angela’s knowledge, personality, and concern. I saw immediate results and saw her for a year before trying my first IVF cycle (which was successful). Working with Angela, I learned that a combination of Western medicine and Chinese medicine is the best for me. She taught me that together you can get the whole being in balance, and that all the different systems of the body work together to make a whole.
