Natural Conception Achieved & IVF Avoided

“Amy is wonderful and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to improve their pain or help with infertility. I started seeing her while trying to conceive our second child.  After going through IVF (and years of treatments) for our first child, I was sure we’d have to go that route again, but I wanted to do acupuncture for a few months to get my body back on track. I am totally shocked that after 4 months of treatment with Amy, I am pregnant! This is after doctors told us that we had no chance of a natural conception, and that we should go straight to IVF. Amy is a great listener, empathetic, and clearly, very skilled. She is very invested in her patients and it shows.”

Two Successful Pregnancies with Acupuncture Added

“I am back to see Amy for a repeat visit after she helped us conceive the first time around. We approached our first baby with a combination of Western tactics and acupuncture, and were thrilled when the one cycle that added acupuncture was a success. Because of this, as well as Amy’s expertise and demeanor, we have decided to come to her FIRST for baby #2. She is genuine, knowledgeable and caring – a true asset to the medical field.”

Two Successful Births after Six Prior Miscarriages

“Amy Guinther is our little ‘miracle’ worker. My husband and I have gone through the emotional pain of 6 pregnancy losses and had pretty much given up on the idea of having more children. We started seeing Amy 2 years ago and conceived and delivered a beautiful baby girl. She helped me make a few life style changes that in turned helped me to conceive yet again! We are now pregnant with our 3rd little angel and I have no doubt that we have Amy and her expert advice to thank!!”

Baby Girl Conceived Naturally after Prior Infertility Treatment & Miscarriage

“I started seeing Amy after a sudden miscarriage, trying to conceive for over a year after the miscarriage & some unsuccessful fertility treatment. I was in a low place & after my first few sessions with Amy I was happy, calm & most importantly ready to try to conceive again. After 2 1/2 months of treatments & supplements I am happy to report we are expecting a baby girl! Amy has been amazing & really helped me through a stressful time in my life. Highly recommend!”

Pregnancy Success after Six Years of Infertility

“My name is Chris and I can’t say enough positive things about Amy Guinther.  I struggle with several reproductive system problems: painful and heavy periods, intense mood swings, and infertility. I’ve been dealing with my various symptoms for six years.

When I came to Amy six months ago, I was just coming off of a very depressing set of appointments with an OB-GYN. I was told that if I wanted to get my painful periods under control, I should go on birth control pills. This was simply not an option for me, since my husband and I have been trying to conceive.

Amy helped me get to the root of my issues with a combination of acupuncture, essential oils, medical tests, and nutritional support.

I am so thrilled to announce that I am 18 weeks pregnant, and all is going as it should. After years of trying to conceive, my husband and I were beginning to give up hope. Thanks to Amy, my hope has returned.  From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank you, Amy. Your presence in my life has saved my life.”

Success with IVF after Acupuncture Added

“I wanted to share our good news. Our son was born and he’s a healthy and happy little guy. I wanted to say thank you for all of your support through the IVF process. I really feel like acupuncture helped me significantly. I felt more relaxed and open after acupuncture than during any of my previous rounds of infertility treatments. I am so appreciative of your expertise and care. Thanks again.”

Period Returns First Month & Pregnancy Achieved On First Try

“I saw Amy for help with fertility issues, specifically amenorrhea, and she ended up helping me with difficulties I have had for as long as I can remember. Within one month of beginning the acupuncture, my period came back. I also got pregnant on our first try after my period returned, which was a welcome surprise. Throughout the entire process she was supportive and very knowledgeable. She listens non-judgmentally and follows through with all problems discussed. She educated me and provided me with realistic and helpful recommendations. She successfully addressed any issue I brought to her including several difficulties with digestion. My experience with Amy and the clinic as a whole has been extremely positive and I would recommend it to anyone I know, in fact I have recommended it to several friends and family members already. I am currently in my fourth month of pregnancy and continue to see Amy for her continued support, guidance, and advice, in addition to the general benefits of acupuncture. I am very grateful for my treatment and looking forward to becoming a mother!”

Menstrual Spotting Eliminated & Pregnancy Achieved

“Amy Guinther is absolutely what I needed to help address my fertility issues! I started seeing Amy after 12 months of spotting before periods, negative pregnancy tests, and lots of anxiety about not getting pregnant. We met weekly for more than three months and treatment included acupuncture, herbs, and oral progesterone. After the first month the spotting went away. By the second month I was feeling much more relaxed – as a high stress person this was very important to me. Amy made me feel comfortable and we would openly discuss how she was going to tailor the treatment in order to meet my needs. If I had any questions between sessions Amy was always available to chat. Following three months of treatment I got my first positive pregnancy test!!! Today, I am 16-weeks pregnant and continue to check-in with Amy regularly. Amy is a gifted healer and genuinely cares about her clients. I highly recommend her and can’t say enough good things about her!”

C.O., Madison WI

Pregnancy Success & Stress of Infertility Reduced

“My husband and I had been trying to conceive for over a year when I first went to see Amy. I had decided that I wanted to try acupuncture before venturing into Western fertility treatments. As is the case with most infertile women and couples, I was extremely depressed and I felt incredibly desperate when I began treatment. I was convinced that my husband and I would remain childless and the stress of infertility was affecting my work, my overall health and putting an incredible strain on our relationship. Amy not only worked intently on figuring out what was causing our problems and coming up with a treatment program to address these issues, but she was one of the few people that I could talk to about both my physical and emotional health. I began seeing Amy in November and I was pregnant by late March. During those five months of trying to conceive while working with Amy, I was much better equipped to deal with the stress of infertility. I felt empowered because I was not just trying to get pregnant, but improving my overall well being so that I could be the best wife, sister, daughter, friend and future mother that I could be.

My beautiful daughter is the best testament of Amy’s excellence as a healthcare provider. I know that most infertile couples who are considering acupuncture do so to get pregnant. But I cannot stress enough how working with Amy greatly improved the process of trying to conceive. My husband and I were able to enjoy our last months together as a child-free couple and I do not think that would have happened without Amy’s care.”

IVF Success With Acupuncture Treatments

“My husband and I had struggled with infertility for nearly two years before I started seeing Amy. We had been given a diagnosis of unexplained infertility, but after four failed IUI treatments and one failed IVF treatment, egg quality and uterine blood flow appeared to be the primary factors preventing us from having a baby. From the start of treatments with Amy, I knew that I was in good hands. Amy is a fantastic listener and extremely compassionate. She is professional and very knowledgeable about infertility testing and treatments. In addition to the specialized acupuncture treatments, Amy provided me with many lifestyle and diet tips. After approximately six months of acupuncture treatments, my husband and I embarked on our second and final IVF treatment. I felt stronger and more relaxed this time around. The results were remarkable. My husband and I are now eight weeks pregnant. I know that my work with Amy contributed to our success!”

Donor IVF Success With Acupuncture

“After five years of trying to conceive, and three failed IUIs, I was ready for a new approach. I met with Amy for my initial consult and I instantly felt very at ease in her presence, as her energy is very calming. I decided to come for regular sessions to promote fertility. Along with acupuncture, Amy showed me an easy way to cut processed sugar from my diet, which made a difference in my overall health and mood. A few months later, I found out that I had no antral follicles remaining, and I was not a candidate for IVF with my own eggs. I was devastated, and lost some trust in my body. During this time, Amy was very supportive, and I continued to see her for stress reduction. Several weeks later, my husband and I made plans for a donor IVF cycle in Europe. Leading up to our trip, Amy worked on preparing my body for the procedure, and through it all, she was a calming influence. When we got back, I found out the good news that I am expecting twins! Amy has been instrumental in my journey, and I would recommend her to anyone struggling with infertility.”

Shannon, Madison WI

IUI Success When Acupuncture Added

“I would recommend Amy Guinther to anyone… My husband and I went through many trials and tribulations while trying to conceive over the past 18+ months. After many tests (FSH levels, Thyroid, HSG and Sonohysterogram to name a few) which came back clear and the use of Clomid for 5 months our doctor told us we have “unexplained infertility.” Knowing we were both in good health, we decided to take the next step and went to fertility clinic where we started the IUI process using both Femara and Ovidrel. On our third IUI, we decide to incorporate acupuncture due to all the health benefits we had read about. We became pregnant during this third process, only to find out we would miscarry 7 weeks later. This was one of the hardest things I’ve had to go through, but I feel that my continued use of acupuncture helped me both physically and mentally deal with the situation. With a positive attitude, we proceeded with two more rounds of IUI and are proud to say we are expecting a new addition to our family in June 2012. I am continuing my treatments with Amy throughout my pregnancy to assure I continue to stay grounded and connected to the life that is now growing inside of me. Without Amy’s expertise and assurance, I’m certain this journey would not have had the same great ending!”

First IVF Successful With Acupuncture & Herbal Preparation

“I have been seeing Amy Guinther for the past year for our fertility issues. Amy is a true professional. She is kind and very optimistic. I had never had acupuncture prior to seeing Amy and at my first visit she really took the time to explain exactly how the treatments work and what to expect. We recently underwent IVF treatment and Amy was so wonderful and accommodating. The day before and the day of our IVF procedure to she made arrangements so that I could have acupuncture treatments to complement our IVF. This was our first IVF attempt and I’m happy to say it worked! We are now pregnant and I truly believe it was the complimentary treatment I received with Amy that made the difference. I have continued to receive treatments early in my pregnancy and believe that acupuncture has helped to minimize some of my early pregnancy symptoms and help me focus on the health of myself and the baby.”

Unexplained Recurrent Miscarriages Helped With Acupuncture & Herbs

“I received acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine from Amy for recurrent miscarriages with no known medical cause. Over a period of 1-1/2 years we had 3 miscarriages and our doctors ran all of the tests, said we were healthy and declared our troubles as “bad luck”. This caused us frustration and worry and made it difficult to have the confidence to try again. Amy’s acupuncture and herbs gave us a sense of power! I had been charting my fertility signs and I believe the acupuncture and herbs really helped to create a higher chance of conceiving. We tried to conceive a few months after starting with Amy and we got pregnant the first cycle we tried while using acupuncture and herbs. We are currently 28 weeks into a healthy twin pregnancy.”

Severe Endometriosis Cured

Amy Guinther was able to cure my chronic migraines and endometriosis pain!

For the past 10 years since I was 15 years old, I have suffered from severe endometriosis and chronic migraines. My endometriosis was so severe that I had 2 laparoscopy surgeries, Lupron injections and several other medications to help hinder the endometriosis. I was pumping my body full of medications and hormones, which resulted in debilitating migraines. I would miss several days of class and work a month due to the pain of the endometriosis and migraines. I was always exhausted, grumpy and in pain. Every time I went to the doctors they would prescribe more medication and more surgery.

After 10 years, enough was enough. This was not how I wanted to live the rest of my life. A friend suggested I try acupuncture, so I started to see Amy.

My first treatment was life changing. While lying in the room I felt an intense migraine coming on. I feared the worst since I get nauseous and ill from my migraines. With a few needles in my foot the migraine was gone! My vision was clearer, my head didn’t feel weighted, and it was an indescribable experience. To receive immediate relief without having to pop pills was astounding. From that moment on I was hooked. I completely went off all medications, hormones and pain relievers. I started eating healthier and taking Chinese herbs and supplements to help clean my system of all the toxic medications I was taking for years. Every treatment I noticed an immediate change. That is one of the many things I love most about acupuncture.

Since my first treatment, I have had no migraines. Within two months my endometriosis pain is almost 100% gone and my quality of life has drastically improved. I feel like a whole new person. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that I have control of my body and life again! I cannot imagine how I would be feeling today if I hadn’t tried acupuncture.

For anyone who lives with chronic pain, headaches, endometriosis, etc., I highly recommend Amy Guinther!”

Menopausal Symptoms Relieved Naturally

“Amy does an excellent job of working with you to get to a better, healthy place in life. I no longer have hot flashes, I’m sleeping at night, less moodiness, and I’m continuing to work on the weight loss through a variety of techniques that work for me and without the side effects of medications. She listened to me when I felt like nothing was working and got me on the path to a workable solution. She helped me to see what I needed to change to feel better. She’s awesome!!”

Multiple Symptoms of Fibromyalgia Helped & Pregnancy Success

“My name is Chris, I have fibromyalgia, and I can’t say enough positive things about Amy Guinther. In addition to the FM, I also struggle with several reproductive system problems: painful and heavy periods, intense mood swings, and infertility. I’ve been dealing with my various symptoms for six years, and most of those years I’ve sought out drug-free methods of treating them.

When I came to Amy six months ago, I was just coming off of a very depressing set of appointments with an OB-GYN. I was told that if I wanted to get my painful periods under control, I should go on birth control pills. This was simply not an option for me, since my husband and I have been trying to conceive. At that point, I was also in the middle of an incredibly bad fibro flare. For those who deal with this, you know what that means. I was barely getting through each day at work, and going straight to bed when I’d get home so that I could repeat the cycle all over again the next day.

Amy helped me get to the root of my issues with a combination of acupuncture, essential oils, medical tests, and nutritional support. Here’s a list of the significant impacts on my life and health that she has helped me accomplish thus far:

  • I’ve learned that I have a gluten intolerance. When I stay away from it, many of my symptoms are completely gone.
  • For eighteen months prior to seeing her, I needed prescription medications to be able to sleep. In six months, I’ve been able to transition from my prescription to herbal support, and from herbal support to nothing. I now fall asleep and stay asleep every night without any medical help.
  • My muscle and joint pain is significantly less, and I’ve been able to get control of my flares before they get out of control. This is HUGE. It means the difference between living my life and merely tolerating it.
  • I’ve gotten my mental sharpness back. I’m a CPA, so this is paramount for my career. My menstrual symptoms are nearly gone. I no longer feel like I want to crawl into a hole for two weeks out of every month.
  • My energy has improved. I no longer feel like I need to go to bed at 8pm every night.
  • My digestive issues have improved. I no longer have to keep a bottle of tums with me at all times.
  • I hardly ever get headaches. I no longer have long stretches of daily headaches.
  • My complexion has cleared up. I am nearly 40 years old, and up until a few months ago, I had terrible acne on my face, my neck, and my back. Today, I only get a few around the time of my period.

And last but not least, I am so thrilled to announce that I am 18 weeks pregnant, and all is going as it should. After years of trying to conceive, my husband and I were beginning to give up hope. Thanks to Amy, my hope has returned.

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank you, Amy. Your presence in my life has saved my life.”

Relief from Chronic Sciatic Nerve Pain

“You won’t be disappointed with Amy’s services! I am seeing Amy for persistent sciatic pain and she has helped reduce my pain dramatically. Amy is extraordinary, knowledgeable, caring, thoughtful, thorough and a great listener.

Effective Treatment for Frozen Shoulder

” I had frozen shoulder and everyday life was difficult.  I had no experience with acupuncture before, but my physical therapist recommended Amy. I immediately got back decent range of motion and pain relief. Added motion takes longer, but progress was seen right away and I am amazed at how far I could move and reach. Frozen shoulder is tricky to treat for all medical practitioners and steroid injections  were ineffective for me.  I am grateful that acupuncture with Amy  along with PT improved my quality of life.”

Chronic Headaches and Nausea Eliminated

“I received acupuncture from Amy for chronic headaches, which were accompanied by nausea. Over the past two years, I would wake with severe headaches that would occur 2-3x week. This made it difficult for me to attend school, concentrate on homework and keep up with classes. I felt relief from my headaches immediately after beginning acupuncture and am now 100% better.”

Trigeminal Neuralgia Pain Eliminated After One Acupuncture Treatment

“I received acupuncture from Amy for trigeminal neuralgia. I had sporadic episodes and never knew when it would come. I walked into my acupuncture visit with the aid of a cane; I could not even walk on my own! I had extreme nerve pain in the right side of the face. This pain in my head made it too difficult to walk. It caused fatigue, depression, and hopelessness. For this episode I saw Amy Guinther for my first time with acupuncture. I had wonderful results! I got my life back. I walked in with a cane and in tears but I left smiling and without using a cane. It was a miraculous recovery. I began to feel improvements in my condition immediately and am at this time 99% better. I recommend acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and essential oils. Thank you Amy!”

Surgical Healing Time Reduced By Half With Acupuncture

“I saw Amy for the pain, bruising, swelling and numbness from cosmetic surgery. The surgery had caused my eyes to be swollen shut, very dark bruising, swelling on my cheeks and ears and great deal of pain. I began to see improvements immediately after beginning acupuncture and nutritional supplements. Treatment by Amy was given several times per week and resulted in my healing occurring in half the time that was expected! The bruising subsided along with the swelling so that in two weeks I was feeling much better and in 10 days I was out in public. Amy is very knowledgeable, caring and easy to talk to. She was very thorough, listened attentively and truly cared about helping me. Her past training in facial rejuvenation was helpful. Amy is a wonderful, talented practitioner and I am most appreciative of her help through a difficult healing.”

Pregnancy Related Sciatica Fixed

“Amy, I just wanted to let you know how much of a help you were to me. Without your help I very well could have been on bed rest for the last three months of my pregnancy. I am now 4 weeks away from my delivery date and not having any major issues. I still have slight pain towards the end of my day, but I am also getting bigger and there is just more pressure there now. I have also talked very highly of you and if I encounter anyone that is seeking help do to pain I will definitely send them your way. I can not thank you enough for what you were able to do for me.”

Chronic Food Allergies Fixed

“I received acupuncture, nutritional supplements and stool/blood testing from Amy Guinther because I was experiencing food allergies that became a more prevalent problem over seven years, eventually restricting my diet from almost all foods. My condition caused pain in my chest after eating and an itchy reaction to many foods which made it difficult to enjoy social events and dinners. I also had fatigue, insomnia and sense of hopelessness. I had been to numerous western medical specialists over the past few years and they all told me to “stop eating the offending foods”, which became almost all foods. Meeting Amy and being treated has been such an uplifting experience due to her caring manner and understanding of my problem. I am currently 90% better and happily on the road to recovery. Amy, I cannot thank you enough for your dedication and expertise which has led to a much better quality of life for the past 2 months.”

IBS & Fatigue Improved With Acupuncture and Herbs

“I was unhappy when doctors told me “you have IBS, good luck”. I had problems with my digestion that progressed over several years. After eating anything, I was uncomfortable, bloated, had stomach pain and was lethargic. The fatigue I was experiencing made it difficult to function. I began to feel improvements immediately after starting acupuncture, herbal medicine and the dietary changes that Amy suggested. At this time my condition is 99% better, I rarely feel discomfort, and have more energy. I never knew that I could feel this amazing after eating. Thanks to acupuncture with Amy, I enjoy food and eating and am living a better life.”

Post Pancreatic Cancer Surgery Relief

Digestive Issues, Fatigue & Pain Improved

“I have been seeing Amy weekly for a bit now and my experience has been wonderful. I went in seeking treatment for chronic fatigue and digestive issues that I have been suffering from for the past 6 months and she has also been treating my back/neck pain which I have dealt with for many years. She creates a comfortable, caring environment and each time I leave the office feeling a sense of relaxation and balance that I have not felt in a long time.”

“I suffer from migraines and cluster headaches. I have tried medication and have had terrible results. After seeing Amy I am truly amazed how quickly my body responds to the acupuncture. Amy spends the time to listen to me and my symptoms. Then she listens to my body throughout the whole acupuncture process and makes significant changes within my body. I have found someone who listens to me and has used her professional knowledge of acupuncture to bring my body back to a healthy place.”

Testimonials
“I received acupuncture from Amy for chronic headaches, which were accompanied by nausea. Over the past two years, I would wake with severe headaches that would occur 2-3x week. This made it difficult for me to attend school, concentrate on homework and keep up with classes. I felt relief from my headaches immediately after beginning acupuncture and am now 100% better.”

"Amy is amazing. She takes ample time to talk about my health needs and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to treat me. Her genuine care for the patient and her personable skills are what keep me coming back. I had suffered from migraines for many years, but I no longer have them!"
“I went to see Amy for PMS and low mood. She was empathetic, caring and patient in helping me to find the protocol that worked best for me. With the right supplements and acupuncture, my symptoms improved dramatically in only a few months of treatment. Amy is intelligent, well-informed, patient and caring. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a natural and holistic treatment option.”

“I wanted to share our good news. Our son was born and he’s a healthy and happy little guy. I wanted to say thank you for all of your support through the IVF process. I really feel like acupuncture helped me significantly. I felt more relaxed and open after acupuncture than during any of my previous rounds of infertility treatments. I am so appreciative of your expertise and care. Thanks again.”
