I really love Mindy and as a doula I send her a lot of my pregnant clients and they are always very satisfied. I have sent her moms who had never had acupuncture before but needed a little help getting things started to avoid a medical induction and it almost never failed. With Mindy’s love and ability to get the moms calm and welcoming many of my clients following their visits with her, experienced a gentle birth.
Referral from Doula was last modified: May 26th, 2016 by adminDr. Mindy Boxer cured spasms and ailments that have been with me for years, and supplied me with herbs and nutrients that fit my particular chemistry.
She provides excellent acupuncture treatments in a soothing and comfortable environment that leave you with a feeling of natural euphoria when you leave…..and a noticeable change in whatever brought you there.
As well as close attention to your personal needs, a service that is a dying art in our culture… it is good to know there are still some people out there that do their jobs with that standard of integrity.
Thank you so much, Mindy.

I was referred to Dr. Boxer as a 34-year-old seeking treatment for infertility. I had already undergone several attempts at IUI and one unsuccessful round of IVF. When I asked my doctor about acupuncture, he suggested I see Dr. Boxer, and I began weekly appointments about two months before undergoing my second round of IVF. Dr. Boxer accompanied my husband and I to the embryo transfer at my clinic so I could receive acupuncture immediately before the procedure, and it was ultimately successful – I became pregnant (it’s a girl!). I have continued to see Dr. Boxer on a weekly basis into my second trimester to improve circulation, aid implantation and treat pregnancy symptoms. Throughout my treatment, Dr. Boxer has been a great support, positive and encouraging, and offering advice based on her knowledge and experience. Dr. Boxer has created a relaxing and comfortable environment, and looks to customize treatment... Read more »
I started seeing Dr Boxer after 3 months of unsuccessful TTC cycles to help regulate my menstrual cycles that continued getting longer each month. Even though it was early, Dr Boxer was warm, inviting, listened to my concerns and in addition to weekly Acupuncture, gave me a great supplement and Herbal program to help regulate my cycles and prepare my body for baby. Three weeks later I got my positive pregnancy test and am now starting my third trimester.
I have seen Dr Boxer throughout my pregnancy and believe her treatments and support have been the key in my easy pregnancy. I had very mild nausea and fatigue in the first trimester and have felt great since. I leave each appointment refreshed and relaxed.
I can’t recommend Dr Boxer enough! She is a great advocate in this journey, extremely knowledgeable about her craft, and truly cares about... Read more »
“After utilizing Western Medicine and prescripton drugs for years for my diagnosis of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), I realized I needed another approach. I experienced negative side effects from the drugs and was not getting better.
It has been over a year and half since I started seeing Dr. Mindy Boxer for Nutritional Counseling, Natural remedies and Acupuncture to regulate my periods. My periods became regular and I started ovulating. After about nine months of treatment, I got pregnant ~ experienced a healthy pregnancy with regular Acupuncture treatments ~ and gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy! Thanks to Dr. Mindy for her care and guidance.”

With Dr. Boxer’s extensive knowledge of Nutrition, she has recommended changes to my diet and helped me make healthy choices in what I should eat. She follows up by providing me more relevant information during my visits and also by sending me reading materials in the areas of Nutrition, Women’s health, Cancer prevention, and Stress management.
At the start of each visit, Dr. Boxer patiently finds out my particular areas of concern and determines the appropriate Acupuncture treatment. Her personal approach shows that she is dedicated to her profession and is sincere with her patients.

Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is all about balance. In this ancient system, the key to health is to move through the world in such a way that our bodies can remain in homeostasis, in balance. This idea connects to sleep patterns, what we eat and ultimately the flow of Qi, or energy, throughout the body. For that reason,
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each season is associated with one of the elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Summertime is associated with the element Fire. Fire represents maximum activity. In nature, everything is at its peak growth during the summer, so TCM sees our energy as its most active and exuberant. Summer is the time of
Acupuncture is part of a medical system that dates back nearly 3,500 years. This medical system is known as Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM. TCM acknowledges not four but five seasons. The fifth season, Indian Summer, occurs in late August through mid-September. Each season in TCM has a pair of organs or energetic pathways it corresponds to. For Indian
Summer. The word alone stirs up thoughts of campfires, flip flops, popsicles, swimming and long sunny days. However, for many people it also means sunburns, mosquito bites and excessive sweating. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to deal with all of these issues. Sipping on some refreshing lemonade or munching on a slice of watermelon are some traditional ways
Summer is a season of abundant energy and light, long days, pool parties, ice cream and lemonade. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) recognizes summer as the time of year that has the utmost Yang and therefore the element associated with summer is fire. In TCM, there are specific energetic pathways related to each season and element. For the season of
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, during the Summer Solstice your Yang energy reaches its peak. It is important to harness the peak of this Yang energy, because as Summer shifts into Fall Yang energy will decline. This great abundance of Yang energy will translate throughout your body because during this season you are active and growing.
Although sun protection is extremely important to protect against harmful UV-Rays and to prevent Skin Cancer, next time you pick out your sunscreen, consider what you’re buying. Many common Sunscreens actually contain Chemicals that can be harmful to your body.
Chemicals to avoid in common sunscreens: Oxybenzone Retinol palmitate Methoxycinnamate Octinoxate Padimate O/PABA Nano or Micronized mineral particles
One of the vexing aspects of the approach of Summer is how you can obtain your “swimsuit body.” While the Winter months, especially around the holidays, are a time for putting on some weight, the Summer months are reserved for outdoor adventures, walking in nature, strenuous activity, and relaxing on the beach.
Healthy eating tips for the Summer are a little tricky.
Since the weather is warm, you need light, cooling foods. Juicy peaches, sweet watermelons, tomatoes hot off the vine… The right foods are easy to find. One trip through your garden or a walk through a farmer’s market and you’ll have the perfect summer meal.
But since you’re outside exercising
Summer finally arrives.
The sun comes out. The flowers bloom.
Most people grab their sunscreen and head outside. But what do you do?
You close the windows, grab your antihistamines and hide in the house.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could enjoy being outdoors?
Allergies are widespread. According to WebMD, 20% of the population suffers from ALLERGIES or ASTHMA,
