My story is not unlike many who have approached Acubalance for support in their attempts to become a mother. After two years of trying to get pregnant with a diagnosis of PCOS in tow, I followed the recommendation of a friend to check out Acubalance. I was blessed to have my first appointment with Dr. Ryan Funk and thus began our journey together. What I didn’t realize before I met Ryan was that I was “malnourished,” so to speak. Not only was my body not in any shape to sustain a healthy pregnancy but my mind and soul needed some nourishment as well. I started doing regular acupuncture sessions, Chinese herbal formulas, diet adjustments, and lifestyle changes.
I spent two years meeting with Ryan almost every Tuesday morning where, little by little, Ryan not only prepared my body for a healthy pregnancy but so kindly took care of my soul as well. He listened without judgement to all my questions and concerns and I always left my appointments with a sense of peace and progress. Ryan and the wonderful team at Acubalance supported me through two miscarriages and despite these losses, I was always met with encouragement and endless support every time I walked into the office doors. My husband and I are now proud parents of a happy, healthy two-month-old little boy. I am a happy, healthy, well-adjusted mother and much of this is because of the wonderful care I received from Ryan. There is so much I take away from being with Acubalance that goes above and beyond my little boy. My body, mind and soul will forever be better because of it. No words express how thankful we are to Ryan. He will forever be a part of our son’s “village.”
