“My struggle with infertility was a long, difficult journey. I tried and failed to get pregnant for 18 months. I had surgery to remove endometriosis and miraculously got pregnant 3 months following surgery. However, the pregnancy ended in miscarriage. I was devastated to say the least. I knew that drugs were the next step in my treatment but pumping my body full of foreign hormones seemed like the opposite thing my body needed to heal. I sought alternative medicine instead. Charlottesville is filled with acupuncturists. I did a google search and read many acupuncturist’s websites. I found Christie Savage’s website vaharmonyacupuncture.com to stand above the others. Not only did it list a multitude of sicknesses/diseases/syndromes that acupuncture could help, it linked articles of many success stories. I contacted her and made an appointment. Driving to my first appointment I had a fearful feeling of skepticism. Can acupuncture really change my body? I had hoped and been devastated for so long…it seemed impossible. However, within a few minutes of conversation, I felt at ease and an overwhelming sense of relief. I clearly had an incredibly knowledgeable individual on my side, supporting my decision to heal my body from within. Within minutes of the needles being put in, I was shocked at the sense of peace, comfort, and relaxation I felt. Only a few short months of treatment and I conceived again. Having just had a miscarriage, Christie was so sensitive to my fears and each treatment brought calm over my entire being. Leaving each session I knew my body was working to sustain this pregnancy. I continued weekly treatments throughout my pregnancy. My horrendous digestion was better. My migraines disappeared. I experienced no nausea. My daughter was born a perfect, healthy being with an easy going attitude. I am certain that acupuncture contributed to all of this. After Abigail was 6 months old I resumed treatment because of how much it aides my digestion, endometriosis, menstrual cramps, migraines, and sinuses. Infertility is a dark, lonely, horrible road that never has an end in sight. Acupuncture can give you a light at the end of that tunnel. Acupuncture helped me become pregnant and sustain that pregnancy. I hope it can do the same for you.”

“Coming to see Christie for Acupuncture each week was calming, uplifting, and encouraging- all things which contrasted with the struggle, worry, and disappointment of living with infertility. I looked forward to my appointments with her because I knew she would listen to how I felt, both physically and emotionally, and then she would choose points to help in all areas. I believe that Acupuncture is a powerful tool to help in conceiving, mostly because of the balance it restores to our bodies. I totally credit a healthy diet and weekly Acupuncture to the conception of our daughter!”

“I came to Christie after trying to get pregnant naturally and using extraordinary measures for almost 2 years. After being diagnosed with low egg count and quality I was looking for something to improve my chances and keep me relaxed. Every week the hour I spent on Christie’s table was hands down the most relaxing and invigorating hour of my week. Not only did I get pregnant, have an easy pregnancy and manageable delivery, she helped me in all areas of my life. I credit Christie and her acupuncture with my successful pregnancy and healthy baby boy, as well as many other positive life experiences over the year that I saw her.”

“I saw Christie after 2 miscarriages and a preterm delivery, and a diagnoses of progesterone deficiency – and she did an amazing job of getting my progesterone levels back – I had a successful pregnancy with healthy babies born after her treatments, and she did a great job with treating me for other issues arising during my pregnancy.”
