Houston >Eastern Harmony Acupuncture
This was my first acupuncture experience (I hate needles) and I was really surprised at the results. I was anovulatory and only found out after tracking my ovulation (used the Taking Control of Your Fertility charts). My OB/Gyn said I needed to go on Clomid to stimulate ovulation. I was already eating a very healthy, organic diet, but wanted to try other less medical solutions first.
Sadhna Singh was the acupuncturist that I consulted about regulating my cycles. By the time I went in, it'd been 60+ days since my previous period. Most literature says that you should expect it to take at least 3 months before seeing any changes. Well, after a few weeks of acupuncture and herbs, my period came. I ovulated and got pregnant the next cycle.
I found Sadhna to be very sharp and appreciated her ability to blend Western and Eastern philosophies. For example, she would suggest blood tests for my OB/Gyn to conduct and was able to interpret the results (hormone levels, etc.) and treat the issues using acupuncture and herbs. She also understood all of the TCOYF charts that I was using for tracking. Her bedside manner is warm, but not overly touchy-feely.
I've since moved out of Houston and tried other acupuncturists. In comparison, I am amazed at how quickly and painlessly Sadhna works. Acupuncture seems to works well on me for hormonal (as opposed to mechanical) issues...I just wish insurance would cover more of it!
Was a little disappointed.... I went to Eastern Harmony in 2006 after reading the book written by the original owner. But I felt perhaps there were so many clients at this place that attention to my needs could have been a lot better. I went through about 3 months of treatments for some very mild issues. Despite the fact that my problems were not that bad, my symptoms got worse during my treatments. On top of that I became very depressed, which was very unusual for me. I voiced my concerns and she just told me to reduce my herbal dosage some. I think I needed to be on a different formula, or to have some other ingredients added. When I'd finally had enough of shelling out money to just feel worse, I called and cancelled all my future appointments. I was never asked why, and was never offered to try again.
