“After 3 years of trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully, we were prepared to try anything.”

After 3 years of trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully, we were prepared to try anything. I came to see Dr Vitalis over a year ago for fertility acupuncture. I made weekly visits to Vitalis and am now 8 months pregnant.

I also had help with restless legs. I had my veins lasered to try to combat this. The laser treatment for my legs helped, but only briefly. After four months the symptoms slowly returned. And especially since I became pregnant the symptoms have been keeping me up until the early hours of each morning (and apparently, around 20% of pregnant woman suffer from this). I would spend at least 4 nights a week on the couch trying to get to sleep with my legs twitching and keeping me up.

In desperation, I’ve tried everything from tonic water, magnesium, walking, massage and nothing worked. Dr Vitalis suggested I try acupuncture for this. I am now getting restful nights sleep now. I have been sleeping solidly through the night. I feel like a new person! Thank you to Dr Vitalis and Dr Roberta for all your help.
