“I started seeing an acupuncturist at the age of 33, shortly after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a few months I was unsatisfied with my doctor and felt like I needed more from my appointments. A therapist I was seeing recommended Denise to me.

I immediately connected with her and felt like she was exactly what I was looking for. I have been seeing Denise now for 2 years and with her knowledge, gentle touch, supplement expertise and guidance and her kind authentic spirit I have weathered chemo, radiation, surgeries and the huge transformation of life beyond cancer. She has been an intricate part of my journey and a true friend in every way. I feel so lucky to have her in my life and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking acupuncture and healing. She is amazing!”

“Denise Wiesner is one of the most heart-felt and experienced practitioners of Chinese medicine that I know. She was one of the first that interned with me, and has been a founding member of The Fertile Soul Continuing Excellence in Fertility Professionals program since its inception. She knows more therapeutic remedies for fertility disorders than most, and I consider her one of the foremost experts in the field. Although her professional knowledge is unsurpassed, it doesn’t touch the depth of healing that Denise accesses. I believe the most important attribute a healer embodies is heart, and the ability to practice Chinese medicine as an art. Denise’s compassion, ability to connect with people, and practice rooted in spirit,  is a rare gift.”

“I came to Denise prior to trying to conceive. I was 40, overworked, overstressed and suffering from migraines, insomnia, and high stress levels. I know I needed to take care of myself and my fertility before trying for a baby.

My hypnotist suggested I see Denise Weisner as I was having dreadful pain issues from having both knee replacement surgery, also a tunnel carpel syndrome of my right thumb. I had also just lost my husband and soul mate. I entered Denise’s office not knowing what to expect and was greeted with such love, kindness, and respect it blew me away. Denise and her staff are all so loving, caring, and mindful of my needs and soon had me relaxed and so very comfortable.”

“I left Denise’s office that day, pain free in my thumb which was unbelievable and I was also left with a feeling of, ‘Yes, I can get on with my life.’  It took a lot of Acupuncture and gentle pushing to get my bad knees seen to by another doctor. Denise and all her staff gently pushed me and they have helped me through hip and 2 redo’s of previously bad knee surgeries. My mental state is nearly with it again –  my health in general is really good – thanks to Denise and her vast knowledge of Chinese Medicine.”

“I’ve been seeing Denise for 4.5 months for acupuncture and taking the herbs and dietary changes she suggested. In that time I’ve not had one cold, one migraine and I became pregnant on the first try. It’s not her treatments alone that are amazing, she is calm, kind, and lovely to her clients. She has given me great advice and been an amazing listener anytime I’ve had concerns or questions. She’s called me back immediately when I needed to speak with her. I cannot recommend Denise enough. She works magic.”

Women’s Fertility

 

“Denise is one of the most compassionate and lovely women I have ever met.  I would not have been able to make it through my infertility struggles without her.  In addition to being a great acupuncturist and herbalist, she is an amazing listener and has an uncanny understanding of the different challenges women face (related to work, health, love, etc.)

Every visit was like therapy and acupuncture rolled into one because in addition to doing acupuncture, she always spent time with me to check in on how I was doing and made me feel special and loved every week.

She also helped me through several major infertility related losses and was just incredible during very trying times.  I cannot say enough good things about her.  Ultimately I credit her for my child, even more than my fertility clinic; I know the work she did with me helped my body and mind to be as healthy as possible, thereby bringing my son into my life.“

“ Denise is so knowledgeable, supportive and caring I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!! I initially, came to Denise terrified at age 39 ready to embark on my fertility journey alone.

I was a ball of nerves because I had just been diagnosed and things were not looking good.  Denise guided me, helped me relax and put things in perspective and gave me such wonderful advice and treatments. Every time I left the office I felt happy, relaxed, confident and rejuvenated.

Mine was a long journey I had high FSH, low ovarian reserve, lots of cancelled IVF cycles, failed IUI’s and many a negative pregnancy tests. One wonderfully positive thing was I met my boyfriend shortly after my first sperm donor insemination and since then we have been in this together!!

I must say through it all though Denise and her acupuncture was instrumental in helping me remain positive and grounded. I also truly felt a difference in my body. It had been over a year, I was now 40 and had being rejected from the top clinics in the country and some of the best doctors were giving up on me, the one thing that helped was walking into Natural Healing –it gave me the strength I needed to continue on.

Plus, since Denise is embedded in the fertility community her insight about doctors, clinics, all-things fertility was extremely helpful.   One month I had a particularly high FSH — 23 (yes you read that right, 23) and everyone was telling me to consider “other options,” my new fertility doc said we will just ovulate this out this month and start everything next month. “Well, this month is a wash,” I thought.

Although, still with hope in my heart I asked my doc if I could get pregnant with an FSH number so high…he said yes. And turns out that’s indeed what happened!!!! Au natural, baby! Now, I’m well into my pregnancy and things look “perfect” says my OB.

Thank you Denise for your treatment and support on so many levels.  I’m forever grateful, you’re the best!! “

“I cannot find the words to describe my experience with Denise. There are few people that are able to come into your life and make such a wonderful and beneficial difference in it. Denise Wiesner is one of those people. She is a wonderful acupuncturist. I went to her specifically for fertility. For what was a very stressful time in my life, Denise always had a way of making the whole journey through infertility bearable, each and every visit. Her positive outlook and attention to detail was amazing and I would recommend her to anyone experiencing any infertility issues, or anything else that may ail you. Thank you Denise and I love you!”

“I started seeing Dr.Wiesner after going through thyroid cancer. I’d had surgery, and radioactive iodine treatment. I was a mess. I was very emaciated, extremely weak, and totally exhausted. Dr. Wiesner¹s treatment made me feel one thousand times better.

What she did for me next was even more exciting. Before my cancer diagnosis my husband and I had done an in vitro fertilization cycle which ended in a chemical pregnancy. After many months of working with Dr. Wiesner, my husband and I decided to try IVF one last time.

I am currently pregnant! I strongly believe that Dr.Wiesner¹s treatment was instrumental in our success. Dr. Wiesner treats the whole person, mind, body and spirit. The emotional support she gave me was invaluable. She was able to keep me relaxed and positive. She was there at my embryo transfer, and it was a completely different experience than my first one. Her expertise, combined with her warmth and compassion, make her an incredible practitioner. I have never been ³new agey² nor am I prone to hyperbole, but I truly believe that there is something ³other worldly² about Dr. Wiesner¹s treatment. She is a wonderful healer and I am so grateful to have found her.”

“Dense is one of the rare medical practitioners who hasn’t forgotten her patients. But above and beyond Denise’s expertise as an acupuncturist, Denise is an amazingly warm, loving, supportive and intelligent person who creates a nurturing and relaxing environment. Moreover, she becomes your confident, your sounding board and your sister and your knowledgeable medical advisor. Denise’s support is incredible. She’s always available when I have questions or concerns and I trust her for her input when dealing with some tough medical decisions.”

“If Acupuncture has no side-effects and potential to improve my fertility outcome, why wouldn’t I try it? “

Menstruation

 

“One day I was doubled over in cramping pain from PMS. This had never happened to me before. Tylenol barely cut down the pain. I came into the clinic for an emergency acupuncture session and my pain was relieved.”

— Z. R.

 

“I started menstruating at 9 years old. Right from the start I had heavy and irregular cycles sometimes I would bleed throughout the month. The only way I knew to control it was with birth control pills. At age 33, I decided I didn’t want to subject myself to the birth control hormones any longer so I went to the Natural Healing & Acupuncture clinic. The Doctor wrote me a customized herbal formula and gave me acupuncture 1x/week for a month. The following month my cycle normalized. Now more than 3 years later I can accurately count the days between periods. This has really changed my life.”

— L. Y.

 

Cancer Support

 

“I came for severe fatigue, insomnia, hot flashes and pain around my radiation site following breast cancer treatment. I was put on a program of acupuncture and herbs and nutritional supplements. After each acupuncture session I slept through the night, and felt incredibly energized the next day. I was helped to see that I was suffering from post-traumatic stress. All my symptoms are much better. I don’t know how it works, but it does.”

Pain

 

“One thing I have noticed is that while you have been treating my shoulder problem my energy has improved. It is particularly noticeable at the gym where I am able to work out longer with less pain.”

—C. K.

 

“I was referred to Natural Healing & Acupuncture for chronic lumbar pain following a disc replacement surgery. I can honestly say that Natural Healing & Acupuncture was able to help me more with acupuncture and myofascial release than physical therapy.

I was in too much pain for physical therapy. In fact, I was amazed the first time needles were put in and I got tremendous pain relief.”

—J. S.

 

“I came to Natural Healing & Acupuncture for chronic shoulder pain from a rotator cuff tear and carpal tunnel pain. I had been to three other Doctors including a Physical Therapist and another Acupuncturist. Through massage techniques flexibility was restored to the shoulder and reduced pain like no other. After each massage session acupuncture was performed to further reduce pain and loosen the muscles. I really appreciate this help.”

“Thank you for the terrific noontime seminar you presented here at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power on the Power of Chinese Medicine. I was delighted with the turn out at the seminar. Usually I consider it a success if 30 to 35 employees attend. Your seminar had over 75 very enthusiastic attendees. I could tell this by the number of questions you received and the favorable comments I received after the seminar was over.

The next day my phone was ringing off the hook with thank you’s. You generated a lot of excitement, which is very helpful in the work environment. I hope we can schedule you both again soon.”
