DIGESTION

The digestive system is a powerhouse that affects your immune system, your mood, your skin, inflammation, your ability to absorb nutrients, energy, and your overall well-being. It is an important system to balance no matter what health issues you are addressing. Your gut health is the foundation of your body's physical well-being.

ESTABLISHED

Source Healing has been optimizing fertility holistically since 1999, well before it was used in the mainstream. We want you to feel supported during a time that can bring strong emotions that run the spectrum… from joy to disappointment… from fear to hope. We also help you find mindful balance to enable you to be present in your life and relationships, as well as empower you to strengthen your relationship with your physical and emotional body, positioning you to serve as your best advocate on the winding fertility journey.

For over two decades, we have supported women and men in this journey. We have also have the training and accreditations it takes to do it well and with presence.  

CUSTOMIZED SUPPORT

Whether you hope to conceive naturally, increase your chances with IVF or IUI, or optimize egg quality for egg freezing, we partner with you on your unique path to optimized fertility. While our patients are often told their fertility is unexplained, we strive to provide you with an understanding of your unique road map from a Chinese medicine perspective, based on your symptoms and constitutional patterns. As we get to know you, the emphasis will be on optimizing your wellness and giving yourself permission for receiving nourishment and self-care, as well as guiding you on how to receive for a healthy pregnancy and postpartum resilience. 

OUR METHOD

Our acupuncturists approach treatments with our own method: The Source Method. It is rooted in an evidence-based Chinese medicine approach that includes a blend of acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, nutritional guidelines, lifestyle recommendations, breath-work, and guided meditation; along with intuitive energetic guidance and mindset training to bring your body into better balance. As part of the Source Healing difference, our practice works as a collective, conducting "think-tanks" on each individual case so that you are benefitting from multiple perspectives. 

"As someone with stage four endometriosis, I started acupuncture while trying to get pregnant with my first child. After five egg retrievals and three failed rounds of IVF, I came to Heidi for treatment before undergoing my final embryo transfer. I started acupuncture  in advance of my transfer to support blood flow and overall wellness. My life was forever changed when a couple weeks later after years of trying I confirmed that I was pregnant with my daughter. Then at about five months post-partum after having my daughter, I decided that I would like to start to focus my acupuncture on helping to prepare for what I thought would be another round of IVF for a second child. I never made it to that next round of IVF, because after a couple weeks of working with Heidi I was pregnant AGAIN for the second time totally naturally. I credit acupuncture with helping my mind and body be in a healthy place to support the embryo transfer and ultimately two healthy pregnancies."   - Jackie P.

"Christie helped me restore my inner balance and my body responded in a very fast manner. Soon after, to our total shock, I was pregnant! My husband didn’t believe it, we were prepared for failure, and my doctor couldn’t explain it. I was monitored very closely by our endocrinologist and to his and our surprise, the pregnancy was perfectly normal and grew beautifully inside my body. We have a beautiful son who is now 3 years old."   - J.N.
