“While I was immersing myself in study and forging my second career in Oriental medicine, I had also been on another multi-year journey – the quest to have a child. After many failed attempts at assisted reproductive technologies, many of which were less than dignifying, it was as if my choice to go to acupuncture school was the universe’s way of granting my wish. In the first month of my clinical internship, my son was conceived naturally. I largely credit Chinese medicine – acupuncture, herbs and moxibustion – for this amazing blessing at the age of 42. If I needed any re-affirmation of my choice to become a practitioner of this system of medicine, becoming pregnant naturally with its help was it.”

Whew! What a difference. I feel gooooood! Thought you should know. Thanks!
Acupuncture makes me feel like myself again. – Working Mom
I feel like a million bucks! – New client after her first session
I will never be able to thank you enough for being such a wonderful healer in my life – and for your compassionate ear and supportive heart as I trudge through this fertility stuff.
I came to Angie when I had multiple family issues, and the stress settled into my shoulders and neck. Angie’s sensitive and astute treatment allowed me to simply breathe. I loved my treatments! I was soon able to deal with my issues healthily on both a physical and emotional level. So thank you, Angie!
I have hormonal imbalances and acupuncture restored my regular cycles. I appreciate so much that I can go to Rootstock Acupuncture to be treated for issues that conventional medicine only masks with medications.
Since going to see Angie I have seen a huge shift in my well being. I had a long list of health-related issues prior to seeing Angie and after the first session, I noticed an improvement in my mood and after a few weeks, my energy level increased. This is huge for me as I had been very sick for over a year. The other things on my health issues list have improved so dramatically that many aren’t a problem anymore. I have been seeing her now for about 3 months. Without going into detail regarding the particular health issues I want to express that because of Angie at Rootstock and my acupuncture sessions with her I am doing better than I have been in a very long time, for many years. I have told her I am starting to feel like myself again, and that has been a long time coming. I’m very grateful to have chosen Angie and I highly recommend her as she is as dedicated to your health vision as you are. She is patient, kind, a good listener and takes time to discuss and understand you and your health issues. When you are in a session with her, you are the only one she is concerned with. She is very aware of you and your comfort, and for those worried about the needles, she is gentle with the needles. I have to say if you’re looking for someone to help you with whatever health issues your facing, then I would book a session with Angie at Rootstock and experience it for yourself.
All I can say is I’m very grateful for Angie’s expertise, genuine care, and her help in my healing. It has made a huge difference in my health, my well being and my life. So thank you Angie!”
Thank you, you made a believer out of me. -Retired chronic low back pain sufferer
