“I started going to Rachel Lopez, L.Ac. at Bergen County Acupuncture after having two miscarriages. I started doing my research and read that acupuncture can help with getting pregnant so I called a few different places until I found Rachel. After speaking with her on the phone, she made me feel very comfortable and said she has worked with many women to help them with their pregnancy troubles. She just had a way about her that let me know that things would be OK. I am happy to say that Rachel worked her “magic” and I gave birth to a healthy baby girl in October 2014. Rachel was amazing to work with and guided me every step of the way. I was reluctant to try acupuncture, not knowing if it would work, but Rachel made me a believer. She not only helped with my pregnancy troubles, but eased my mind along the way with her kind spirit and hysterical sense of humor. I will be going back to her in the next few months as my husband and I want to expand our family. I highly recommend Rachel Lopez, L.Ac. at Bergen County Acupuncture and have sent many friends and family members so she can help them out in their time of need as well.”

“After several years of trying to conceive, my husband and I decided it was time to see a doctor. Upon review of the test results, the doctor informed us that there was a very slim chance of us conceiving naturally and that our only option would be in-vitro fertilization. Of course, we were upset, but thankful that we had options.
Like most women who endure the process of fertility treatments, I immediately began researching day and night what I can possibly do for a successful outcome. One of the reoccurring suggestions was acupuncture. Even the doctor gave me a pamphlet on the proven studies that acupuncture is beneficial for infertility.
Perhaps it was fate… One morning I was sitting at the kitchen table having a cup of tea. My husband had left a pamphlet from a networking meeting he attended for business. I started to look through the list of members in the group and noticed there was an acupuncturist. I thought what the heck, so the next day I called Rachel Lopez, L.Ac. at Bergen County Acupuncture and made an appointment.
Rachel promptly returned my call and was eager to see me within a few days. I was happy to hear that she offered convenient hours (weekends and evenings) for us working folks. The office is very warm and inviting. It is beautifully decorated and immaculate. Rachel greeted me immediately and showed me to one of several very comfortable rooms. She took a lot of time asking me questions before she began the treatment. Immediately, I felt very comfortable with her. Rachel is one of the most caring, nurturing, and trustworthy persons that I have ever met.
After about 8 or so months of dedicated bi-weekly treatments, I am overjoyed to share that I am now in my second trimester! Rachel did an amazing job keeping me calm throughout the whole process; which is not an easy task to do! Shortly after a few sessions, I noticed a major difference with my stress level and anxiety. She is extremely talented and knowledgeable in her field. Her candid disposition will make you laugh and put you at ease.
Last but not least, Rachel’s office manager (aka right hand girl) Erica, is extremely competent and friendly. She is always on the ball and greets you with a friendly smile. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about Bergen County Acupuncture. In fact, I still go for occasional treatments even after Rachel released me. I feel so fortunate to have met someone who had a big part in helping me achieve the greatest gift of my life. I am forever grateful to Rachel Lopez, L.Ac. of Bergen County Acupuncture.”

My husband and I were trying to get pregnant for about 8 months with no success. I knew the issue was my hormones and also my age (42). I decided to start acupuncture as it had helped me in the past. Within the first two months my periods were back to “normal”, pre-children, and my overall health improved (sleeping through the night and less hair falling out!). Month three, well, it finally happened! The day I walked into my session with Rachel she asked me if I was pregnant. I didn’t know it yet but I was!
Now well into my first trimester, I am feeling unusually good with only fatigue to complain about. Rachel has been treating me for morning sickness and the other discomforts that come along with pregnancy. I am RELIEVED to say I have none of those symptoms! And how thankful I am trying to manage a job and two boys and this new unexpected joy!
Acupuncture is often frowned upon by western medicine. My doctor told me I should be going to a fertility specialist because of my age. I hope this inspires women in similar situations to at least try acupuncture. There are no negative side effects, no invasive procedures, no pain. I rarely go to my MD without asking Rachel for help first. This effort and commitment has been worth every penny!! Thank you Rachel…
