I have been seeing Emily for years and have experienced major health and wellness improvements since starting acupuncture treatments with her. I am more mindful, peaceful, and overall healthy thanks to her treatments. So while apprehensive about acupuncture given his young age, I was hopeful that acupuncture could be an option for my 11 month old son, to address what was becoming a chronic difficulty with respiratory infections.
Immediately after he started daycare, he became sick, which is rather common when children join daycare. However, it’s been a relentless ongoing battle, not the norm. First it was a fever and diarrhea, then upper respiratory virus, hand foot mouth, bad cold, and multiple fevers. After two months and several trips to his pediatrician and countless dosages of Tylenol and ibuprofen, I turned to Emily for advice. Within a few days following his first 2 treatments, we saw a rapid improvement in his health. His frequent fever went away (and hasn’t come back!), his congestion improved dramatically, and his cough only flares up on rare occasions. He also immediately began sleeping through the night, which he hasn’t been able to do in months. He wakes up happy and eager to drink his bottle while being able to freely breath through his nose.
I cannot tell you how happy this makes my son, my husband, and me. We see this as a new chapter in his health and wellbeing. I feel honored to know Emily, learn from her, and to bring my young son into acupuncture treatments. Her work has changed my life and now my son’s.
