WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH SPORTS MEDICINE AND PAIN MANAGEMENT?
Stephanie has a bachelor’s degree in Integrative Physiology and has studied and instructed multiple anatomy didactic courses and cadaver laboratories. She has a profound understanding of physiology and kinetics of the human body. Accuracy of human anatomy and muscle function was key to Stephanie becoming well versed in acupuncture trigger point needling. She studied
sports acupuncture and myofascial release through motor point and trigger point needling under Lindsay Long LAc and Michael Young LAc. Stephanie was selected to treat D1 athletes at the prestigious Del Ward Athletic Center at CU-Boulder. It was here that she found the integration of oriental medicine practices and pain management to mesh flawlessly. Whether trauma induced, post-surgical or chronic degeneration, acupuncture and various modalities like electrostimulation and fire cupping can be instrumental in accelerating recovery time and decreasing pain.

DO YOU HELP TREAT "UNEXPLAINED INFERTILITY"?
This diagnosis is given far too often to women trying to conceive. Conception is a complex event that requires optimal health and timing on behalf of the man and the woman. Optimization of sperm and egg quality is only part of the journey. The constellation of events that must align in trying to conceive naturally is vast. Acupuncture and herbal medicine performed over 3 months can improve chances of conceiving by increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, decreasing stress and regulating reproductive cycles.

WHAT ABOUT SUPPORT FOR ADVANCED REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY LIKE IVF/ ICSI?
Preparing for IVF is a big decision; protocols and medication schedules can be overwhelming, and a lot of trust and control is given to your reproductive endocrinologist. Empower yourself
and enhance your reproductive success along the way by scheduling appointments designed to enhance egg quality, number and growth. When embryo transfer time arrives, we will perform pre-transfer and post-transfer appointments designed to increase implantation rates and secure pregnancy.
CAN YOU TREAT ME DURING PREGNANCY?
The first 12 weeks of pregnancy are an important time to schedule weekly appointments to secure pregnancy and ameliorate symptoms like morning sickness, fatigue and abdominal cramping. We will explain to you the important elemental transitions of fetal
development and corresponding treatments. Perinatal treatments can be performed for pre-eclampsia, breech or malposition of the fetus and overdue labor. Let us help your body and mind prepare for a successful labor and delivery.
IS THERE A TREATMENT FOR HELPING WITH NATURAL FERTILITY OR DURING IUI?
Knowledge of the sequence of events when it comes to insemination, fertilization, hatching and implantation is key to timing acupuncture sessions. We will work with the timing of your cycle to plan treatments for optimal success.
