What People Are Saying About Us
What makes Jeneanne's treatment so unique is that she works with the individual as a whole, mentally and physically. "Just poking people with needles is not going to be enough. Connecting to the patients is a way to reach the spiritual side of acupuncture. This goes beyond treatment and is more than a business, it's a tool to create a life." - Examiner.com by Erin Miserlis
"I struggled with fertility for 6 years and I’ve seen many different accupuncturist over the years. After relocating to San Diego, Jeneanne came recommended to me from the nutritionist of Randine Lewis's The Fertile Soul. I was at ease once I met Jeneanne as she provided me with a healing and nurturing process that I needed to move forward. She worked with both me and my husband and today we are proud parents of boy/girl twins!" - Kathie R.
"When I was having trouble getting pregnant my doctor at Scripps suggesting doing acupuncture and told me about Jeneanne Paden with Galena Acuspa. During my first visit she really took the time to get to know me and my body and lifestyle and not only did we have an excellent session she sent me away with lots of suggestions about helping with fertility in general. My sessions with Jenanne have been incrediblly beneficial. Not every acupuncturist specializes in fertility so I would only go to somebody who was an expert. I have been in excellent care and cannot recommend Jeneanne highly enough!" - Tyler R.
"My fertility specialist works in tandem with two wonderful acupuncturists from this office, Jeneanne Paden, L.Ac and Renee Walker, L.Ac. Both are Licensed Acupuncturists, Masters of Traditional Oriental Medicine and Diplomats in Acupuncture. These woman are highly respected within the San Diego medical community.
I first went to see Jeneanne about 5 years ago...when we were preparing for the embryo transfer that resulted in the birth of my daughter. Paden not only is amazing as an acupuncturist but she's extremely familiar with all of the stages of the complicated protocol for IVF. She explains it all much more clearly than any nurse was able to at my doctor's office." - Caroline B.
Acupuncture Fertility Center and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association will recognize National Infertility Awareness Week®, April 21 through April 27, 2013, joining millions of women and men fighting the disease of infertility, healthcare professionals, psychologists and other thought leaders to promote greater awareness about infertility.
RESOLVE works to improve the lives of women and men living with infertility. One in eight U.S. couples of childbearing age is diagnosed with infertility. RESOLVE addresses this public health issue by providing community to these women and men, connecting them with others who can help, empowering them to find resolution and giving voice to their demands for access to all family building options.
“The theme of National Infertility Awareness Week® is ‘Join the Movement,’ and RESOLVE is delighted to work with practices and organizations across the country to call attention to the disease of infertility,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “This is a wonderful week when our community comes together to rally around the cause of infertility.”
Your stories are priceless, and we hope you will join us this week in bringing more awareness to our community and lawmakers. Talk about infertility to friends and family, start a fertility blog, post this orange Fertility Awareness ribbon on your Facebook page to show your support for the estimated 7.3 million Americans diagnosed with infertility.
Raising awareness may help get fertility treatments covered by insurance companies, but it’s even more important to let lawmakers know that we are here and that we matter. There have been situations where laws meant to target abortion have threatened fertility treatment (aka personhood legislation). Other times, laws have targeted fertility treatment itself, like when some lawmakers tried to pass legislation in response to the Octomom story that would have threatened successful treatment for all infertile couples.
I encourage you to write a letter or send an e-mail to your representatives in congress and tell them about your infertility experience. Your experience is so powerful. Simply share your story.
