It is without a doubt that Chantal played a major role in allowing me to become pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy. After months and months of trying and suffering with a thyroid condition, Chantal supported my nutrition and lifestyle in addition to providing careful and thoughtful acupuncture. Chantal has been such a blessing to my family & with her help, we have been blessed with a pregnancy once more! I have so much gratitude for the nurturing support she has provided, which truly comes from her heart.  H.D.

Chantal was there for me from conception to getting the labor going.  She was an essential part of making my pregnancy go as smoothly as it did and I will be forever thankful.  My little boy couldn’t be happier or healthier.  -Katie

mommybaby2“Chantal has been an incredible support to me for the past year. When I decided to start trying to have a baby, a friend referred me to Free Flow Acupuncture. I thought that getting pregnant might be difficult because of my very irregular periods, but it happened just a month after I started seeing Chantal! As a new mother herself, Chantal was very understanding and extremely helpful throughout every stage of my pregnancy. Because of her treatments and advice, I didn’t have too much to complain about; things like heartburn, backaches, and swelling were markedly improved after seeing Chantal. I am now looking forward to an easy postpartum recovery with Chantal’s help!” ~Jessica C.

34 year old woman began coming in initially for acupuncture to help with stress and hypothryoid issues. She decided she wanted to start working on becoming pregnant and found out she was the same cycle we began working on conception.

Hi Chantal! Here is a photo of my baby Zoey and I taken on Wednesday. By the way, I stopped running once I started seeing you, and now, Zoey will be 14 months tomorrow, and I have had 5 normal cycles in a row. I no longer am on hormones and Clomid. I also weigh 10 lbs less than I did before I was pregnant. I am hoping to have another baby!

I met Chantal in 2007 and she has been my one and only acupuncturist since then.  Her incredible knowledge, constant support, and extremely giving and caring energy have helped me through many physical and mental ailments throughout the last 10 years.

Most recently, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl and Chantal helped me through the process of pregnancy from before I conceived to my labor and delivery.   Through the months of trying to conceive, Chantal offered her support and services to both my husband and I by giving treatments and recommending herbs to help with fertility.  Even though it took us some time to get pregnant, I believe that the treatments and herbs helped us to conceive more quickly.  When I got pregnant, Chantal gave me treatments which helped with my nausea and fatigue, as well as treatments which helped to bring healthy energy and chi to my growing baby.  Overall I felt really wonderful throughout my entire pregnancy and I know Chantal’s treatments contributed to this.

One of my fears towards the end of my pregnancy was going way past my due date and having to be induced. During the last month of my pregnancy, Chantal started giving treatments to prepare my body for labor and delivery. With my due date approaching, Chantal wasn’t trying to get labor started, just preparing my body for what was to come. I saw Chantal two days before my due date and she gave me a treatment that focused more on getting things going in the labor process. Two days later, on my due date, I went into labor! Chantal even offered to come to the hospital to help with the whole labor and delivery. She will go above and beyond to make sure her clients are doing well. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and I know Chantal’s treatments contributed to my healthy and amazing pregnancy and birth.

One of the things I love most about Chantal is her ability to listen. She always takes time at each and every session to sit down and talk with me to find what’s going on physically, mentally, and emotionally, and caters each and every session to fit my needs at that time. She is truly passionate about her work and cares so much for what she can offer her clients. I recommend Chantal to everyone I know who is seeking acupuncture, especially all of my friends who are pregnant or trying to conceive. Chantal has an amazing gift and it should be shared!

“After years of trying physical therapy, massage, chiropractors and other modalities without success, I read about the scientific evidence from credible studies about the efficacy of Acupuncture. I wasn’t crazy about the idea of needles but after trying it, I was relieved the treatments were painless but most of all I was truly amazed of the results. My shoulder has not felt this pain free in years!  I am blessed to have found Chantal Davis for this modality. She is kind, knowledgeable, patient, supportive and has healing hands. Thank you Chantal for helping me feel fantastic!”

“I suffer from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.  Which like the name suggests is extremely “complex”.  It is a rare condition and very hard to treat.  I was getting treatment from specialists that helped, but certainly did not fix my condition.  The doctors were  treating me with multiple heavy medications, a shot in my spine, and the doctors were planning on giving me another shot in my spine when I asked about acupuncture.

Chantal is my first experience with an acupuncturist and I can say that it has been life changing.  I am no longer on ANY medication, I did not have to get another shot in my spine, and I am able to live my life practically pain free (something I did not think would ever be possible).

Chantal is a great acupuncturist.  I have referred all my friends to her.  She listens and reviews all of your health concerns and treats you accordingly.  If you look anything up about this disorder, you will know that it is nearly impossible to overcome and with Chantal’s help, that is exactly what has happened.” – Abbey N.

“After a year of chronic back pain, along with regular visits to back specialists, as well as physical therapists, taking pain medications, cortisone shots and chiropractic care, my back pain wasn’t getting any better. I was almost out of hope, and ready to accept the pain and just live with it. Then my back specialist recommended that I see an acupuncturist, and suggested Chantal Davis. I shared with him that I was rather skeptical about acupuncture, and being the pragmatic person that I am, didn’t believe that it would do any good. Out of sheer desperation, I booked an appointment. That same day of my first appointment, I left Ms. Davis’ office feeling practically 100% pain free! I couldn’t believe the results. It was instantaneous! I left feeling better than I had in over a year. That night when I got home, I was able to do things that I hadn’t been able to do in so long. I felt new again. I don’t need to take pain medications, or visit back specialists any longer.

Chantal Davis changed my life, and now I live pain free!” -Scott S. Ghahary

“I began seeing Chantal about 8 months ago for anxiety and depression. I decided to try acupuncture for the first time when I was in a particularly bad place and was hoping to avoid going back on medication. My treatments with Chantal have made a huge difference in my emotional wellbeing. I feel more balanced, less anxious, and more consistently happy than I have before. I am now a true believer in the power of acupuncture and the power of the body to heal itself with the proper guidance. Chantal is professional, warm and welcoming. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Chantal and I would definitely recommend her as an acupuncturist to anyone who is struggling emotionally or physically.” -Elizabeth

“I was referred to Chantal for acupuncture to treat lower back pain that developed while I was pregnant and I am so glad I started treatments. She really took the time to get to know what was going on with my body and design a plan that was right for my symptoms and appropriate–not too aggressive yet effective. After several treatments I began to feel real relief that made the last couple months much more bearable. Since giving birth to my son I incorporated her treatments as a part of a healthy lifestyle that keeps me balanced and energized. Chantal is fantastic, very professional and sensitive–I’ll keep coming back!” -Mariah Dula

“Chantal Davis was recommended to me by my physician for treatment of a chronic insomnia problem I had struggled with for nearly two years, after trying many other things that didn’t help very much. Her careful evaluation led her to a completely different conclusion about what my problem was than what I had thought, and her treatment solved my problem. This was my first experience with acupuncture – I was amazed!”

“Chantal has helped me with my menstrual cycle immensely. 6 months ago I was bleeding for almost 3 weeks out of every month…through her acupuncture treatments and specific herbal perscriptions, my cycle has improved tremendously. I am well on my way to the having a pleasant cycle.” -L

“I’m one of those people who have problems with their neck. For many years I have been going to a chiropractor for help. Then I began treatment with Chantal. Although my muscles were “rock hard”, Chantal has loosened them up to the point that my visits to the chiropractor has been greatly reduced, if not eliminated, and I feel less stress and more movement in my neck and shoulders.  Plus the fact that the treatment is so good for your overall health. Chantal is a professional in every way. Passionate, concerned and talented.  Everyone should have acupuncture as part of their healthy lifestyle and Chantal, in my opinion, is at the top of that list.” – C.Ryan

“I started seeing Chantal for headaches related to an old car accident injury.  I felt better after the very first session and, after just a few more, experienced a dramatic reduction in their frequency.  I was having several severe headaches a week and now only get one or two a month.

I’ve continued to work with Chantal to balance my menstrual cycles and, again, I’ve had some really remarkable results.  Over just a few months she has combined acupuncture and herbal therapy to help me move towards much more regular and comfortable cycles.  Not only do I feel much healthier now, but I am confident that I will be so glad I did this healing work with Chantal should my husband and I decide to try to conceive in the future.

Chantal has the rare ability to blend a deep knowledge of the complex science of Traditional Chinese Medicine, an intuitive understanding of the individual patient, and a heartfelt compassion that makes each patient feel nurtured and loved.  I cannot recommend her highly enough!” ~Molly S.

“I met Chantal at the Natural Baby Pros Fair and got her card with the intention of possibly getting some Acupuncture postpartum. Then, I ended up 9 days post dates, with a very itchy rash all over my arms and legs, a lot of fears and anxiety, muscles in my right leg that kept spasming sending a shooting pain through my leg that would stop me from walking, and the possibility of being induced in a couple of days. I remembered Chantal’s flyer so I called and she worked me in the very next day at 1:00 pm.

During the appointment we talked very candidly about my fears, which was very helpful, and I remember her telling me to say in my mind, “I trust the process of life”. I was treated in two different positions and a couple of the points had e-stim. My appointment finished just after 2:00pm.   At 7:00 pm, less than 5 hrs later, I noticed I was having regular contractions. They became stronger and stronger and our little boy was born at 0200, 7 hrs later. Also, the spasming pain in my right leg was completely gone. I definitely attribute going into labor to the Acupuncture treatment I received and I’m very thankful for it.” – V

“Chantal is incredible. Not only has she helped with my digestive system (something I had been dealing with for most of my life), but also my stress levels. Going to see her is my favorite part of my week. I feel mentally, emotionally, and physically supported by her. I knew some of the health benefits of acupuncture before going to see her, but now I can say that acupuncture is a necessity to connect both body and mind. I think everyone should experience acupuncture at some point in their lives.” -Kiersten

“When I first came to see Chantal I had a long list of ailments that were making my day to day very unpleasant. I was suffering from sinus congestion and not being able to breathe properly was causing me headaches. Along with that I was being monitored for high blood pressure and had heart palpitations that made me very nervous. My digestive system was not functioning properly, I was having a difficult time sleeping at night and my shoulder was adding to the rest of the list by hurting to the point were sleeping on it was a problem.

To top all of this off I was also going through a very difficult period in my personal life which caused me great anxiety and high levels of stress.

My first impression of Chantal was that she is extremely professional and took more time to evaluate me than any of the 6 doctors I had seen in months prior to coming to Chantal’s office. She was very detailed in the questions she asked and the notes she took, I felt very confident that she would be able to give me some relief. Within three sessions my sinus congestion had almost cleared up and the heart palpitations were down considerably. Throughout the next couple of months Chantal not only treated my shoulder and anxiety she also treated my soul. I have never felt like I am just another file in her cabinet, she has the biggest heart and she genuinely cares about her patients. Although it is not her responsibility under my acupuncture treatment she has listened to me in moments of despair and has given me hope and offered natural ways to treat my different conditions, she treats me as a whole not just as a specific problem, her kindness is transmitted to her patients through her practice. Now months after my initial visit I have no idea how I would have survived this phase of my life without her help, I will be forever grateful to her and will continue to see her to work on maintaining a balanced body. I have and will continue to highly recommend Chantal to others not only will you see results, you will also meet one of the most beautiful and caring human beings.”
