PRENATAL SCIATICA

I received treatments throughout my second pregnancy for various issues. I experienced hip pain (sacroiliac joint issues), back pain, sciatica, and some intermittent bleeding. I was extremely hesitant to try acupuncture. I worried that I would have to sit like a statue, and if I didn't sit still enough I would feel pain, or that I might just feel pain in general. After multiple recommendations, I decided to go this route. I felt no pain of any sort, and what's more amazing is that I felt relief immediately from my symptoms. Lindsay was detailed in questioning and assessing my situation in order to give me the treatment I needed. She was gentle and checked in with me frequently to make sure I was comfortable. Not only did she provide professional and effective healthcare, but she also sent me home with tips to alleviate some of my discomfort. 

With my first pregnancy, I ended up in the ER from the sciatic nerve pain. It was a miserable experience and I am so thankful that the second time around, I had acupuncture to get me through it so I wouldn't have to ever consider dealing with the ER again.

PRENATAL CARE

100% acupuncture helps with pregnancy! I still can't believe how easy my pregnancy journey felt, and more importantly, how i felt the whole 42 (!!) weeks!! Thanks to Dr Lindsay Trottier, I was always feeling so good that it allowed me to stay active all the way til the end...I was still able to go on hour long hikes all the way up to the day before delivery. Thank you for everything!!
