When I was pregnant, I was plagued with morning sickness for 8 weeks and nosebleeds for 40. Acupuncture with Laura Yoo was the ONLY thing that was able to help either of them. Morning sickness become tolerable, and nosebleeds occurred less often after treatment. (And yes, it is perfectly safe to receive acupuncture while pregnant, as long as the acupuncturist is aware that you're expecting and knows what they're doing.)
Laura has a great bedside manner, very professional and isn't all "You need to take these supplements and meditate while holding these crystals under the full moon" new agey BS. She's a fully-trained medical professional, and going to see her is no different than going to see my GP.
The only drawback is the drive -- Oak Cliff isn't right next door. But good medicine is worth the drive, I think.
Cons: Driving distance
I went to Bishop Acupuncture after throwing out my back on a camping trip. Ms. Yoo was able to work me into the schedule the very next day. I found her office with no problems, and she welcomed me into a very comfortable treatment room. After some diagnostic questions and examination, she began a treatment and then left me to relax until it took effect. When she returned a short time later, the effect was noticeable. Most of my pain was gone, and my freedom of movement was much improved. When I told her that, she frowned and said, "OK, let's try this." She gave me another treatment, and had me stand up again, and my pain was GONE. It was like I'd never been hurt.
I highly recommend her services!
Pros: Affordable, Proffessional, Friendly, Effective
