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...

Thank you again for your part in my fertility journey. You were so helpful and wonderful.
Oh yeah, it’s a boy!”
“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 »Dr. Boxer’s well rounded knowledge and talents in nutrition, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture make her a perfectly suited health care professional for my needs. First off, I was very skeptical about the whole acupuncture thing. She has such a delicate and precise technique. You rarely feel ANYTHING!! Except of course energized after the session.
More often than not, besides treating and alleviating the aches and pains, I leave with a HIGH — feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Boxer on and off now for over 10 years. I have never left her office without feeling a total change in my symptoms. They can be sinus related, chronic back and neck problems, stress from work and the list goes on. I am also a Breast Cancer survivor and Dr. Boxer helped me tremendously with the side effects of the Chemo Therapy I had to endure. There are few problems she is unfamiliar with as...

I truly credit my work with Dr. Mindy as part of the reason for my successful battle over breast cancer. Her treatment included acupuncture, nutritional advice, and herbal formulas.

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.
