Testimonial: From Infertility to Beautiful Baby Girl!

This letter recently arrived for Birch Center Acupuncturist David Sokulski. It is reprinted here with permission.

Dear David,

I am writing to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to get pregnant.

As you know, my husband and I had been trying to conceive for 3 years with no luck. I had been receiving acupuncture treatments from you on and off for about 2.5 years. during this time, I had been undergoing fertility treatments including four months of Clomid and three months of FSH injections. None of these cycles resulted in conception.

My husband and I decided that my body and mind needed a break from the treatments. However, I increased my acupuncture treatments with you to once per week. During these acupuncture treatments, I mentioned to you that I craved hot foods and drinks and you suggested that my body seemed to be craving warmth and that it needed to be warmed to allow pregnancy to occur.

You also added moxibustion treatments on my abdomen and lower back to warm the uterus. You recommended that I keep warm at all times...wear a scarf and hat, gloves and warm boots or shoes. I was to pay particular attention to keeping my hands, feet and lower back warm. I drank warm liquids and ate warming foods. You also gave an herbal supplement to strengthen my kidneys.

After 6 weeks of this regimen, we noticed my body was warmer. You told me, "You are now warm. Give treatments a break and see what happens."

We conceived three days later.

I tell everyone who will listen our story. It is nothing short than a miracle but one that was not possible without your help. You provided not only the expertise and necessary therapy to help me conceive, but also you are an extremely kind and caring person who would listen and console me and give me hope. You suggested helpful books to read, in particular "The Secret." I really connected with the teachings in this book and I am convinced that thinking positively and expressing gratitude for achieving my dreams helped them to come true.

Again, my husband and I can't thank you enough for helping us to conceive our baby girl, born on November 2, 2011 by schedule C-section (due to my previous myomectomy surgery.) She is such a joy to us and we are enjoying every minute with her. You were able to do for us what modern medicine could not. We are forever grateful and hope that our story will inspire others to seek assistance from you and give them hope that their dreams will come true too.

Sincerely,

J.P. and S.P.


Congratulations J and S!!! We are so happy for you and your little cutie (they also sent us a picture and believe me, this baby is gorgeous!!!)

Space Available to Rent at Birch Center



We have space to rent at the Birch Center!

Our space is lovely, right on East Carson Street (up one flight of stairs) in Pittsburgh's South Side. It has a waiting room, bathroom and three treatment rooms. The ones in front and back are up for rent...you can rent them for a certain day (or days) of the week and pay monthly. For example, perhaps you want to see clients on Fridays, you could choose which room you'd like and it would be reserved for you (and only you) every Friday. You can see clients any time of day for however long you wish and choose what to charge. Instead of taking a percentage, we'd just charge a small monthly fee ($150/month for one day/week. Add $100 month for each day per week.)

That is a flat fee, you would not pay for utilities. You and your clients are also welcome to the water and tea we have available. There are also massage tables in the rooms which you are welcome to use (but please bring your own sheets.) This would be your own practice, you get to attract and schedule your own clients, and of course you can advertise at the Birch Center!

We are looking for massage therapists, energy therapists, body workers. Also health coaches, nutritional counselors, homeopaths, EFT, therapists, etc. The space would even be great as a study space for students or writing space for writers. Also yoga therapists or one on one yoga sessions. (Even the front space isn't quite big enough for actual yoga classes, but private yoga sessions would be great.) We will still be using the space as well (we are acupuncturists) so there cannot be lots of noise during sessions.

Our website has more information about us and what we do. If you would like to see the space or talk more about it, just call us at (412) 381-0116.

Thanks so much!
