"My acupuncture experience with Clara is always amazing. I was able to quickly conceive my son after a early miscarriage and have a successful vbac with my daughter! In fact I went from very slow early labour to active labour while in a acupuncture session. 6.5 hours later I was holding my beautiful baby." -Analyn
'I came to Clara at the beginning of our trying to conceive journey. I had difficulties getting pregnant with my first child due to PCOS and knew that we were going to face the same challenges with the second. I saw Clara steadily for about three months and in that period of time my mental and physical states improved greatly! I have never known such a deep state of relaxation and peacefulness like that before in my life! I believe that it is because of that transformation that our first round of super-ovulation treatment was successful (we endured four rounds before to conceive our son) not to mention that I also came in for a session right after ovulation to ensure that our little bean would stick! I am now into my 8th week of pregnancy and everything is looking great! I give much credit to Clara for making this happen as she truly has an unbelievable gift and I cannot say enough good things about her!'- Chelsea
"Clara is a warm, funny, down to earth person. She is passionate about what she does. She is also a dog lover which goes a long way in my books . Her sessions are not "routine". She is genuinely interested in your health/life in general and treatment is determined from that at every visit I started seeing Clara when I was experiencing infertility due to endometriosis. She was with me through the hard times (the first ivf failed) and the joyful times (2nd ivf- success, had a son Nov 2015)! Clara also came in on her days off so I could have acupuncture on our embryo transfer day (when using acupuncture with ivf there is a "time" protocol for treatment). We are thinking about trying ivf once more and will be using Clara! Highly recommended!!!!!!" -Catherine
