Laurel, Fertility Acupuncture Client
Heather was my first acupuncturist! To this day she is one of the best healthcare providers I have ever worked with. She is super empathetic, one of those people who you feel like you can say anything to.
She helped me regain a cycle after a year of amenorrhea through treatments and gentle lifestyle advice. I credit her with helping me get pregnant after months of trying. She is a wealth of knowledge for all things related to your well being. I highly recommend Heather Bird!
Jason, Wellness Client
Over the years, I've gone back to Heather for physical ailments (an aching hip negatively impacting my posture), kicking a nasty and pernicious sinus infection, dealing with the side effects of an oddly long lasting and intense yellow fever vaccination, and most recently, I've worked with her now on two separate annual seasonal cleanses. I keep going back and broadening the scope of the work we do together because each time, it works. She has a gift!
Margo, Pregnancy & Wellness Client
My stomach ailments begin to seep into other parts of my life and health. I eventually reached a breaking point and reached out to Heather Bird. She could not have come at a better time.
Heather got my stomach set straight!
Not only has she been such a wonderful resource and healer, she is a "yes!" person.
Since my stomach issues have passed I have returned to her for pregnancy related difficulties and she has continued to be a wealth of information and help.
I couldn't recommend Heather bird enough.
