ServicesI have experienced infertility first hand and know what it feels like to want a baby. I also understand the experience of working with Gynecologists and Reproductive Specialists that offer little more than Clomid and IVF as a solution. When I entered acupuncture school, I knew that I wanted to specialize in women's health and gynecology.
One of my mandates as an acupuncturist is to empower my patients to take control of their health. I spend time during each treatment to teach my patients how to take care of their body, mind and spirit. When treating fertility patients, I view my role as a fertility coach. I teach my patients how to read her their fertility signs and how lifestyle changes, improved diet and self treatment can raise sub fertility to full fertility.
One of my first patients was 26 years old and had heavy uterine bleeding for almost a month. Her doctor wanted her to have a hysterectomy. I treated her with acupuncture and herbs and she kept her uterus.Additional ServicesFertility
I first became aware of Dr. Amelia Hirota during an online summit in 2012, she was very knowledgeable and seemed really keen to help people. In November 2013 I joined one of her group coaching programs and I have learned more in depth about hormones, possible imbalances in my body, and ways to help restore nourishment and balance to my body. Amelia has thorough webinars, detailed responses to questions, and is always encouraging.
In Nov. 2013, I attended a Fertility Summit and was so impressed with Amelia's knowledge and ability to address issues in a very straightforward, thorough way that I was interested in working further with her to improve our fertility. I connected with Amelia via an online forum, since we live too far away to come to her practice. My husband and I have been TTC for almost 3 years now. Since signing up for Amelia's help, I have received coaching that has been life-changing. This is huge, since my Dad is a doctor and I have had very good experiences with many health professionals, all practicing Western medicine, however. I had no clue how wonderful Chinese medicine was. At no other time in my life have the solutions to my issues been so simple. Thanks to Amelia, I feel 100% better about my health and the possibility of us welcoming a newborn into our family at some point in the future. And if we don't conceive, just the help she has given us with our hormones has benefitted how we feel on a daily basis and that is a lot more than any other medical health professional has done. She is so incredibly informative, every presentation is packed full of tips and information that we've applied to our lifestyle, diet, and medical check ups. Amelia even nailed a Male Factor issue that no one else had ever thought of. It has given us hope for an even greater chance at conceiving. Having my husband take charge of his fertility has been huge for me. It's wonderful to understand how our bodies work, and make changes that positively influence health & fertility.
