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.... Read more »
“Acupuncture has really helped me over the last year restore a healthy balance to my life – both mentally and physically. I have a pretty hectic job and a heavy travel schedule. The addition of Acupuncture to my weekly schedule has helped significantly in keeping my body in routine, maintaining sleep patterns, overcoming stress & anxiety, keeping me from illness and helping build my physical strength.”

I started seeing Dr. Mindy Boxer for acupuncture treatments in February. I was almost 39 and wanted to start a family. I had anticipated it taking a while to get pregnant and having to undergo potentially stressful and costly fertility treatments. But my husband and I found out in March that we were able to get pregnant on our own and would have our first child in November! I have to think that the acupuncture, which reduces stress and is...

“I started seeing Dr. Boxer when I removed my IUD and my husband and I started thinking about having a baby. I was having trouble getting my menstrual cycle regular but within a month and half of Dr. Boxer’s Acupuncture, Herbal and Vitamin treatment, I was able to regulate my period and ovulation cycle.

“We tried for 2 years to get pregnant. I have PCOS and wasn’t ovulating. I tried many fertility procedures including clomid and IVF without success. Complications from IVF left my uterus scarred, and doctors recommended I consider surrogacy. At 32 years old and healthy, I refused to give up the dream of having and carrying my own children. After researching alternative methods, we began treatment with Dr. Boxer. She is truly amazing and provided us with outstanding patient care.... Read more »

Brush Your Way to Health!
Helping our bodies detoxify is an important part of any wellness regime, and caring for our skin is one way we can stimulate the body’s natural mechanisms toward DETOXIFICATION. Acting as the “third lung,” the skin
‘s functions include respiration, excretion, blood and lymph circulation, immunity and the conduction of Vital Qi.
Skin discharges impurities from our body by absorbing oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide and water vapor. It’s surface is covered with pores, which act as a drainage system whereby blood, via perspiration, purifies itself of poisonous waste.
One way to accelerate the discharge of impurities within our body is with Dry Skin Brushing.
Dry Skin Brushing is an ancient practice – – from the Japanese using loofahs to the Cherokee Indians using dried corn cobs – – which, if practiced daily for a few months, cannot only improve body tone, enhance skin beauty and break down cellulite, but can also support blood and lymph circulation, boost the immune system and open up the movement for Qi along the acupuncture meridians. It is best and most enjoyable to follow skin-brushing sessions with hydrotherapy: in the shower, encourage blood circulation and the movement of lymph by alternating between hot and cold water, or after brushing, fill the tub with hot water and an essential oil for a luxurious soak.
Use a dry, natural fiber shower brush or loofa to massage your entire body before you shower or bathe. Start at the toes, and gently scrub using circular motions toward your heart. Just a few minutes a day will help you keep your body’s toxic burden low and your detox mechanisms working for the long haul.
