David Schnitzer really helped my aches and pains. It also helped my infertility issues. With the help of Western and Eastern Medicine. I was blessed with a beautiful baby boy. I would highly recommend acupuncture for anyone.

Acupuncture has been a lifesaver to me! I’m twenty-nine years old and have had three back surgeries with the last one being a spinal fusion. I spent my twenties in bed because the pain was so bad. I came to Balance Point Acupuncture in March of 2007. At that point I was still having constant severe pain, even though I had already had the spinal fusion surgery. The pain was constant and it was ruining my life. I was often stuck in bed for days because the pain was too great to walk. I was not a believer in acupuncture, and would often get verve block injections instead. However, that was just not working for me anymore, so I decided to go to the holistic route and give acupuncture a try. I’m so glad I did because today I no longer have to take pain medication, and I have not had a verve block since I started acupuncture. I have not spent one, single day in bed and have been able to resume my life and do the activities that I enjoy. Today I feel healthy and pain free and I know I would never have gotten there without acupuncture.
I went to David for acupuncture assistance in getting pregnant. I had read articles on the positive effects acupuncture can have on fertility and I have friends that have experienced the benefits of acupuncture in the areas of fertility, headaches, arthritis, etc. My husband and I had been actively trying to conceive for approximately a year, though we had not used birth control since the birth of my 1st son, 2 years prior. I had spoken with by MBGYN regarding my concerns over the length of time it seemed to be taking to get pregnant with baby #2. My OBGYN ran blood tests and confirmed all was normal and nothing was “wrong” medically. I was subsequently able to get pregnant but miscarried at 5 weeks. I then headed to a fertility specialist, ho again, ran tests, ultrasounds, etc. and confirmed nothing was “wrong” medically. It was at that point I headed to David’s office, looking for additional answers. I had trust in his practice as I had previously seen another professional in his wellness group for massages. Within five minutes of our fist visits, David had diagnosed me with anemia, anxiety, stress, along with concerns over the medicines I was currently on for chronic rhinitis and the effect they were having on my fertility. He immediately began treatment on “warming” my uterus to direct the blood flow to the proper area, requested I stop taking my prescriptions and handed me two bottles of Chinese herbs: one for fertility and one for rhinitis. My first session with him was at the beginning of my cycle. He requested that I track my basil temperature and keep him updated with the results. After a month of weekly and bi-weekly session, I was pregnant.
I’m currently 32 weeks pregnant and looking forward to meeting my baby girl. At about 6 months into my pregnancy, I complained of fatigue & dizziness to my OBGYN who once again ran blood test and then finally confirmed my anemia. I’ currently on supplemental iron pills, which confirms David’s early instinct that my anemia was having my ability to conceive and carry a pregnancy to full term.
I do not believe I would have conceived without David’s help. It was a very rewarding experience and I took his advice to heart, cognitively practicing my “Zen”. My husband and I are eternally grateful.
