" Rachel is an amazing acupuncturist. I have been seeing her for nearly a year now and cannot say enough good things. She takes great care in laying out a treatment plan for you and answering questions. If she doesn't know the answer to one of my questions she will do research and have an answer by my next appointment. I was told by my doctor that I would never be able to get pregnant, but thanks in large part to Rachel, I am now 19 weeks pregnant and thrilled about it. She is the best!” ."

– Q.S.

" Rachel is amazing. I've spent too much time and money on fertility treatment trying to get pregnant which failed miserably. After about a year of treatment with Rachel we got pregnant on our own. The time it took was very enjoyable and Rachel really helped educate me about the process and about other things I had going on along the way. She's found her niche in life and is truly helping and healing her patients. Thank you, Rachel!!"

" I highly recommend Rachel, especially for those who are seeking fertility treatment! My husband and I tried for two years to get pregnant, and I had two early miscarriages during that time. I started taking Clomid, but the doctor didn't think it was working well for me, so I decided to take a break from meds before switching to Femara. 

The month I didn't take meds, I decided to try acupuncture at City Pulse with Rachel. After three sessions, she took my pulse and asked me if I was planning to take a pregnancy test. It was still days before my missed period, so I hadn't even been thinking about it, but based on how she asked the question, I decided to...and I tested positive! It turns out she could tell I was pregnant based on the pulse she felt! When the doctor tested my hcg levels, they said it was extremely high and the only explanation they could give is that it was a really strong pregnancy."
