As cliche as it may sound, Dr. Elise and Blossom Clinic have changed my life. I've had a variety of hard to treat health issues and I had long given up hope that I could have vibrant health. PCOS and a constellation of related issues led to fertility problems and general poor health. After a year of treatment with Dr. Elise, I have energy again, my cycle is almost regulated (after two decades of unpredictability!) and I'm 80 pounds lighter. Dr. Elise took the time to really listen and create an individualized treatment plan. It shows that she truly cares about her patients' wellbeing and she has always taken the time to explain the science behind her nutritional guidance and treatments. She knows her stuff when it comes to hormonal and gut issues and I cannot recommend her highly enough! I also saw Liz for acupuncture today for the first time. She has such a welcoming and calming style! The clinic offers a range of nutritional and herbal supplements, but I've never felt pressured to purchase them in-house though I've always been pleased with the quality and price. Really, can't say enough about Blossom!
So lucky to have found Blossom – I cannot say enough good things aboutnLiz Richards and Blossom clinic. My husband and I embarked on our first IVF cycle last fall after a failed vasectomy reversal. We had been very frustrated with the lack of care we received through the reversal process and were thrilled when our wonderful fertility clinic recommended Liz. I started seeing her about 2 months before my cycle. Not only is she an exememly talented acupuncturist, she has very helpful and supportive suggestions to help get you through the fertility treatment process and into pregnancy. She came to the clinic for my embryo transfer and was very flexible about changing her schedule to be there. I am proud to say that our cycle was successful, we are now expecting twins at the end of June! I continue to see her on a regular basis as it really helps with all the "bad" pregnancy symptoms. I definitely give credit to Liz for having a large part in our successful cycle. I would highly recommend her to any woman/couple with fertiliy issues.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so happy for you. -Liz
Wonderfully caring and supportive. Liz has been great in working with both my husband and I as we went through fertility treatment. After 3 unsuccessful IUIs, we started our first IVF cycle, and began seeing Liz, just prior to the IVF. We were able to successfully conceive and are now awaiting the arrival of our twins this summer. Liz has been very helpful and has provided great insight into issues that have come up along the way. We feel very lucky to have come this far and have to give credit to Liz for her services. I continue to see Liz during my pregnancy and look forward to the comfort and knowledge provided at each session.
Thank you!! You two are going to be the best parents. xo Liz
Wonderful infertility and pregnancy support in Portland, OR – I wanted to recommend both Liz and Lori with whom I had weekly appointments for about three months prior to going through my first round of IVF. I had been diagnosed with endometriosis and thus was having difficulty in becoming pregnant. I went through five cycles of IUI of which none took. I began seeing a new fertility specialist who recommended Blossom Clinic's services, specifically acupuncture and massage. Both Liz and Lori came very highly recommended. I found both women to be extremely caring, warm and professional. I successfully conceived and delivered a healthy baby boy as a result of my first IVF cycle and I attribute that success to the talent of my reproductive specialist and the highly qualified staff at Blossom Clinic.
I also wanted to add that i am now expecting my second child, whom I was able to conceive naturally. I believe that Liz and Lori have exceptional talents and I truly believe that their treatment helped alleviate my infertility challenges I faced for so many years. Thank you both for your terrific clinic and services.
Jennie King is Awesome! – About a year ago I decided to seek out an acupuncturist for various health reasons. After a bit of internet research I decided to try out Blossom. I had been to acupuncture twice before for a weird neck muscle thing. Both times the treatment was effective but the practitioners were a bit brisk and impersonal. So, I wasn't sure if that was rule of thumb for the profession or not. Then I met Jennie King at Blossom, my acupuncture super hero. Jennie is friendly, caring, attentive, and considers all aspects of her clients well being in a holistic manner, and she has a great sense of humor to boot. Not only have the treatments helped my various physical griefs, they have also provided me with some much needed respite from my day to day grind. Everyone else at the clinic are friendly and professional. I highly recommend Jennie King and have heard great things about Liz as well.
I had been told by my doctor that my WBC was on the low end of the range and it was impacting my ability to juggle home life and long hours at work. Every two-three weeks, I would get sick, which would hamper my ability to handle the demands of my life.
After many frustrating appointments with my doctor, I went to Blossom Clinic to see Rylen. In just two appointments, she was able to turn things around. Now, I can work long hours, play with my kids, and be active all without getting sick. And this is without ANY drugs. Unbelievable! Rylen has changed my life! Go see her now.
I love the Arvigo technique-a healing massage for fertility – My husband and I have tried to get pregnant for 3 years. After several heart-breaking miscarriages and failed clomid and IUI attempts, I intuitively felt that something was missing from my experience. Along with my western fertility treatments, I started seeing the wonderful women at Blossom Clinic for acupuncture, nutrition, and especially Tiffany for her magical work in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (aka Mayan massage). That's a mouthful, but I sincerely believe that this simple style of massage has helped me stay calm, relaxed and nurtured throughout my IVF treatments. Tiffany is not only an amazing masseuse, but cares about her craft and for the women she sees. Even my husband sees her (especially before our embryo transfer). I am now 7 months pregnant (YES!) and Tiffany has helped me keep my uterus high and centered...and has already developed a relationship with my baby! I firmly believe that my 'hybrid' approach to becoming pregnant has everything to do with the female support I received at Blossom Clinic and the Maya work. Please try it...it's deeply effective.
What a beautiful review from a beautiful mom-to-be. Thank you so much!
Help with fertility – I had been trying for several months to get pregnant. After just 6 weeks of weekly accupuncture treatments with Liz it happened! During my pregnancy I have been seeing both Liz and Jennie monthly for pregnancy support and I feel great! They are thorough, supportive and professional. As a healthcare professional myself I appreciate their bedside manners and obvious thorough knowledge of women's health and fertility. I would urge any woman who is considering pregnancy to have a consult with one of them.
Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts. Congratulations!
Liz and Jennie
I LOVE BLOSSOM CLINIC – I LOVE Blossom Clinic. From the complementary consultation to the easy way in which Liz and Molly interface with their clients- this is the place to be. Liz is crazy talented and over the moon committed, going above and beyond daily. Molly is professional, efficient and friendly. The space is lovely and calming. And most of all, you'll get results. Liz really, really cares about her clients. If you are at all searching for stellar care in women's health, come here. You will not be disappointed. -posted by Liz Richards, owner of Blossom for a client on April 2, 2011
