THANK YOU to my patients who have kindly expressed their satisfaction with the care they received!
"I have known Ashlie for almost 4 years and have worked with her on and off during that time. I originally sought out acupuncture when western doctors were perplexed by my symptoms and out of ways to support my body. Ashlie has helped me understand my body and it's challenges in a whole new way and she has assisted me in getting back to a place of good health more than once. I also worked with Ashlie throughout two pregnancies and postpartum periods. Ashlie is very generous with her time and she always goes above and beyond to provide support, guidance and thoughtful care. I cannot recommend Ashlie enough!"

"Ashlie was recommended to me by another acupuncturist because she specializes in treating pregnant women. I had a difficult pregnancy due to some unexpected life stressors as well as some unexpected health concerns. I was looking for someone to help me relax and reset my nervous system: Ashlie did so much more than that. Week by week she assessed my symptoms and how I was feeling physically and emotionally. She helped me navigate what I was experiencing, minimize symptoms, and maintain as much balance as possible during an incredibly difficult time for me. When it became too much for me to go to her office she saw me in the airbnb I was living in and then in my home. She fit me in on short notice when something unexpected came up and was flexible with her schedule when I did not need treatment. She made house calls to drop off herbs. She was extremely generous with her time. She answered phone calls and texts and reached out on her own when needed to make sure I was ok. She has an expansive knowledge base about both acupuncture and pregnancy and always had an explanation for what I was going through as well as a plan for how to navigate it. I credit her for helping me stay pregnant and healthy to full term and recover from a difficult time post partum. It is obvious that she truly enjoys her work and cares about her clients. I highly recommend Ashlie if you are trying to get pregnant, are currently pregnant, or if you are having a hard time post partum."

"I met Ashlie late in my third trimester through the wonderful Sweet Pea's Studio. From the moment I walked in the door, her warmth and confidence put me at ease and I knew that both me (and my baby) were in good hands. I purchased a maternity package, which included visits while pregnant and after delivery. Ashlie was able to relieve many of my pregnancy aches and pains and assist with relaxation in my final weeks prior to delivery. Her treatment also included acupuncture to help aid natural induction (I went into labor the same evening!). During labor, she was available to offer guidance to my doula so that she could focus on pressure points to assist with labor and coping with pain. Afterward, we did a home visit and she focused on healing (especially of the uterus), relaxation and nursing. I'm fairly new to acupuncture and was skeptical at first, but Ashlie is incredibly knowledgeable and explained everything very thoroughly. I'm so grateful to have met her and to have benefited from her skills (and innate kindness and grace)."

"I first came to Ashlie Martin for acupuncture in the last trimester of my pregnancy and I was very uncomfortable. I had indigestion and heartburn quite a bit and I was not sleeping well. Ashlie was attentive to my needs and sensitive to the struggles that come with pregnancy. She helped me understand what was happening in my body and why I was having a hard time with certain symptoms. She utilized acupuncture to relieve my symptoms and made my last few weeks of pregnancy more comfortable."

"I started coming to Ashlie with chest oppression and sleeplessness resulting from grief. I'd never been to acupuncture before, but after our first session I noticed I slept better than I had in weeks. After several more sessions, the chest oppression faded and has made only flickering reappearances since. Ashlie has doggedly treated my ever-shifting grief/anxiety symptoms over about 13 sessions, and I'm so grateful for and impressed by her attention to detail and true passion for helping me regain balance. Ashlie even brainstorms herbal remedies for me during the week between my treatments. Her willingness to explain basic TCM and Japanese acupuncture principles has helped me become more in tune with myself and proactive about my health. I don't know what I'd do without her!"

"I came to see Ashlie for anxiety issues, digestive issues, and weight issues. She is gentle, compassionate, and very knowledgeable in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. She helped my digestive issues. My anxiety and stress were greatly reduced. She also gave me nutrition and dietary advice that helped me adjust my lifestyle to assist in accomplishing my weight loss goals while providing complimentary acupuncture to assist this goal as well. I started achieving my health goals while seeing her and continue to maintain these nutrition and lifestyle habits that she taught me. Even for those in the health and wellness field, such as myself, there is still much you can learn from Ashlie. I would recommend her to my closest friends and family."
