My husband and I struggled to conceive for two years before finding Orchid. From the very beginning, every session with the Orchid team was so warm, welcoming and understanding. I began to receive weekly treatments of acupuncture and eventually added monthly mayan abdominal therapy to my regime. Throughout the process, I found notable differences in my cycle, stress levels and what was probably even more important was that I had partner with Orchid to process the ups and downs of conception.
After 6 months of treatment, we had successfully regulated my cycle and my husband and I were able to conceive our first child. I continued to receive acupuncture weekly through my first trimester to mitigate all of those nasty early pregnancy symptoms. Then, I switched to a monthly visit and these became my favorite prenatal appointments. The tenderness of the staff and the attention to every detail made me feel so supported and loved throughout the whole journey.
I would 100% recommend Orchid to anyone trying to start their family as well as anyone looking for acupuncture in general. They are absolutely amazing and I know we would never have been able to realize our dreams without them.
I came to see Lisa for acupuncture at Orchid because I was "overdue" with my first baby and looking for alternative ways to naturally induce labor. Lisa was fantastic. It is clear she loves what she does, is great at it and genuinely cares for her clients. She fit me into her schedule for 2 productive acupuncture sessions. She spent time talking with, and listening to me and offered various additional suggestions for me to try to help induce labor in conjunction with the sessions. The best part is, I went into labor 12 hours after the acupuncture session and am confident my visits with Lisa at Orchid played a role in that.

After trying to get pregnant for three years I connected with the women at Orchid Chinese Medicine. My husband and I had been to a couple different doctors, done multiple rounds of tests and were ready to try something different. I started doing weekly acupuncture sessions with Rebecca and Lisa and monthly Mayan massage sessions with Jennifer. I really liked the personal care that they offered, and their knowledge of women's health from both an eastern and western medicine perspective was phenomenal. Their guidance, knowledge, support and expertise put me at ease, and I looked forward to my treatments with them for not just the health benefits of acupuncture but also the rejuvenation that I felt afterwards. My husband and I became pregnant after six months, and I enjoyed my experience so much that I continued acupuncture treatments and Mayan massage throughout my entire pregnancy. The team at OCM is incredible and I am so thankful for all they did to help me and my family of three on our pregnancy journey! We've since recommended OCM to friends who had similar challenges with getting pregnant and they are now expecting babies of their own!

I went to see Lisa at Orchid when I was around 25 weeks pregnant. I was having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions and I was concerned about pre term labor. Lisa was awesome and she was so knowledgeable not only about acupuncture but also Chinese medicine and nutrition. My son stayed put until 38 weeks. I also got some lovely prenatal and Maya abdominal massages before my little one made his appearance. I love Orchid and I will certainly be back should the need arise!

Rebecca, I've been meaning to reach out to you to thank you! I don't know if it was the acupressure and/or acupuncture that helped but this little girl came out in record time on her due date- just as grandma arrived! My mom was able to pick up the boys from daycare without a hitch at 6 and the baby came at 6:57pm, so no waiting around! I couldn't have asked for an easier or better timed delivery! The experience of feeling my body want to push involuntarily was surreal after my previous experience in labor, rewarding, and once the back labor stopped, the contractions weren't terribly painful. I still think about how amazing it felt to work together with my mind, body, and her to get her out and into this world. I'm so happy to have experienced a vbac. Thanks for all of your help in making this happen. You have been an amazing resource in both of my pregnancies, as your skills have really helped me achieve my goals.

I have been coming to Orchid Chinese Medicine and was a patient of Rebecca and Lisa a few months prior to starting IUI and IVF treatments. After 3 ½ IUIs, 2 IVFs and 1 FET, I am currently 11 weeks and 4 days pregnant! I also did one round of Mayan Abdominal Therapy right before my FET. I believe that a combination of acupuncture and Mayan Abdominal Therapy helped complement the success of my IVF treatment. I highly recommend Orchid Chinese Medicine!
