What Patients say?
Three words come to mind when thinking of Cindy Lawrence; expertise, warmth and caring. I utilized Cindy as my acupuncturist when I was trying to conceive a baby. I am 1000% convinced that I would not be the parent of a beautiful baby daughter today had I not utilized a top rate physician as well as Cindy. I highly recommend her!
I sincerely believe without your treatment, I would not have my two beautiful babies. My doctors told me I couldn’t have children, and acupuncture (well, Cindy Lawrence) made it a reality. I suffer from high FSH - and no doctor would treat me for infertility (I was told donor egg or adoption). Cindy’s calm and holistic treatment approach made all the difference.
After several failed attempts to achieve a pregnancy through IVF, I sought out acupuncture with Cindy Lawrence. I can happily report my son is now almost 2 years old and my husband and I both feel that acupuncture helped to make our dreams come true. I am now attempting to get pregnant again and can’t wait to start acupuncture treatments with Cindy. She is professional and compassionate and it was a pleasure to work with her on achieving our goals.
I first sought acupuncture as a natural remedy for my infertility, and visited a handful of recommended acupuncturists in Connecticut. Cindy was heads and tails above the rest - in her knowledge, technique, and personal interest in my situation. Unlike other acupuncturists, Cindy strives (and succeeds) in treating the whole person - consulting about diet, exercise, and emotional issues which influence the health and well-being of the patient. Needless to say, I am three weeks away from giving birth to my first child, which I am sure is in part due to Cindy’s meticulous and thoughtful care.
I decided to try acupuncture along with the conventional treatments for infertility. Cindy was recommended by a close friend struggling with infertility issues as well. Cindy is an excellent acupuncturist. She is very knowledgeable about infertility and IVF. She makes the client feel very comfortable, relaxed and informed. Cindy takes exemplary care in evaluating the client’s issue and choosing the appropriate treatment. She was a mentor and a motivator for me throughout the process of trying to get pregnant without whom I could not have done it. We had success with our first IVF round and our son was born in November 2008. I highly recommend Cindy to anyone struggling with fertility issues.
I feel that acupuncture definitely made a huge difference for me. Two RE’s told me that I would never be able to have children, and to look into other ways to build a family. I kept doing the acupuncture, and ate a careful diet. Six months later, I got pregnant without the help of fertility treatments, and was finally able to carry a baby to term. We are now the very happy parents of a 13 month old boy. I really believe that acupuncture helped me get pregnant and stay pregnant.
After several years of invasive fertility treatments, coupled with drugs that altered my mood and body, I gave up on “science.” I was a believer in statistics and data, but science failed me. I opened my mind to the idea of acupuncture as a means of getting my sense of self back. If a pregnancy came along, that would be an unexpected gift. When I met with Cindy, she was warm, compassionate, and asked questions about my body and overall health that made sense. She recognized my initial worries about acupuncture and put them at rest. I never once felt unsure, uncomfortable, or unclear when Cindy treated me, as I had with Western doctors. Acupuncture relaxed me and ultimately (coupled with Cindy’s dietary advice), allowed my body to become pregnant! I saw Cindy until my 8th month of pregnancy and I truly believe she is a monumental reason why my son James is here. My husband and I do not have enough words to thank her.
Thanks to modern Western and ancient Chinese Medicines and of course Cindy, I have 2 wonderful children. We had to undergo fertility treatments and with each one I felt confident that the treatments would work knowing Cindy and acupuncture were helping. The treatments were so relaxing. I always left The Healing Point feeling like I had just had a massage!
My experience with Cindy was nothing less than wonderful. While going through fertility treatments, my weekly appointments made me feel relaxed and calm. I loved how she catered each appointment to the symptoms I was experiencing at that moment. As I’ve told her repeatedly, I definitely give Cindy at least ‘partial credit’ for my wonderful one year-old daughter!
My husband and I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from Cindy Lawrence at the Healing Point gratefully for over five years.
Initially I began going as part of my treatments as a fertility patient, and the treatments were so relaxing and calming that I continued to go after my fertility treatments were over and began treatments for other areas of concern including neck and back pain, sinus and allergies, digestion and immune system strengthening, and stress. In addition Cindy has treated me after major pelvic surgery and the pain relief I received from this natural non-invasive treatment was priceless, and many times the only thing that relieved the pain substantially for any length of time.
When my husband saw what a difference my treatments were making in my overall well being he began to go for treatments for himself. He has had treatments on his back, both wrists for carpal tunnel syndrome and sinus and allergies and his treatments have improved his health and well being as well. His back does not go out on him as often and his hands don’t tingle and wake him at night which was a constant problem with carpal tunnel syndrome in both his wrists. “It’s relaxing,” he reports.
I had heard so many great things about acupuncture treatments, but nothing could prepare me for the lighter than air feeling and literally the spring in my step when I leave Cindy’s office after a treatment. It has been a wholly positive experience that has greatly improved our quality of life.
Cindy is highly professional, very personable, attentive and knowledgeable in her area of expertise. Her offices are impeccably clean, calming and relaxing. We highly recommend The Healing Point Acupuncture. My husband and I are both glad and better off for having come to Cindy and our treatments remain part of our preventative health care and maintenance regime.
I have met and worked with many acupuncturists in the past 15 years but really never found the right one. You by far have surpassed my needs. Your gentle manner, your expertise and your kindness pulls the entire physical and emotional process together. I always leave your table feeling like a new woman and I look forward to our next session where you, open my meridians, make me feel balanced and clear my entire universe like no other practitioner has. You have introduced me to points that I never knew existed and I have learned what “a well being” treatment is.
Thank you for opening your practice in Fairfield for the settings are nurturing and comforting and I enjoy my time there. You are simply the best!
Two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I started going to Cindy for acupuncture immediately and have done it in conjunction with my other treatments. After my surgery it became my life line to regaining my strength and energy. I still go regularly because I love it and it helps to strengthen my immune system. Cindy is an excellent acupuncturist, always taking the time to listen to how I am feeling and what my specific needs are for each visit.
I have been receiving acupuncture for several years. I LOVE receiving acupuncture. I feel that it helps me not only on the physical level but on a mental and spiritual level as well. Cindy’s knowledge and intuition leads her to put the needles in not only for physical ailments but also for emotional and spiritual. I like to go as often as I can, sometimes 2x per week.Acupuncture helps me with water retention, digestion, liver strengthening and detoxification and hormonal balancing on a physical level. The treatments also help with the energetic balance on a mental and spiritual level. I have found it to be very grounding and keeps my connection to the universe flowing.I hope I will always have acupuncture from Cindy in my life.
Acupuncture with Cindy has helped me with a variety of things - stress, muscle tension, focus at work, acne AND wrinkles. She has a wonderful bedside manner and I love that she can adapt my sessions so easily and effectively.
My lungs and breathing have been so much better! I think my whole body overall functions more efficiently with the stimulus of acupuncture each week.
