Success Stories & Patient Testimonials (find more on facebook)
"I first met Christine after attending a Women's Infertility Support group (Infertility and Adoption Support, Inc.) at Wellbody and decided to give acupuncture a try. We'd been wanting a baby for years to no avail, and I was willing to try anything. Being afraid of needles I was a little fearful but to my relief and surprise, not only did acupuncture not hurt, it was very calming. I started looking forward to my weekly appointments not only for the treatment but also to chat with Christine. She is extremely knowledgeable about fertility/infertility issues and treatment and one of the most compassionate people I've known. Within a couple months my menstrual cycles became more regular. I'm now mother to a wonderful baby girl and while I no longer see Christine, it'll always mean a lot that she was there for me, on my team. I highly recommend Christine and Greg for their caring nature, sensitivity and professionalism. They are simply wonderful!"
"After struggling with several years of "unexplained" infertility, seeing the top reproductive endocrinologists in New York City and St. Louis -- multiple unsuccessful IUI and IVF cycles, and ultimately being told donor eggs would provide our best chance at pregnancy, Christine Kleinschmidt represented hope. Her expertise in the practice of acupuncture and her genuine positive energy gave me the ability to believe that pregnancy was possible. Under Christine's care, I became one of the lucky ones -- one of those "miracle" pregnancies after multiple unsuccessful Western fertility treatments. Our "miracle" son, directly attributable to Christine Kleinschmidt."

"I have a 16 month old now after finally going to see Christine for acupuncture. Until I met Christine and learned about acupuncture I never thought we would have our daughter. I truly believe that Christine's expertise and acupuncture helped us with our successful pregnancy through IVF. Christine is a great person and I couldn't have made it through it without her. I'm thankful for all she has done for me. If you are having fertility issues Well Body is where you need to go. Both Christine and Greg are great people and always make you feel at home when you enter their place.
"After 5 years of struggling with infertility, which included many different types of treatment, surgeries, medication, switching doctors and 3 failed IUI's, my husband and I began reading about acupuncture for the treatment of infertility. Before attempting our first IVF we talked with our Fertility Specialist about adding acupuncture to our infertility treatment. He had worked with patients who had success with Christine and her acupuncture treatments. I began seeing Christine for just over 2 months before our first IVF. In January, 2008 we got the best news ever, I was pregnant. I continued to see Christine twice a week for about the first 12 weeks into pregnancy and now see her once a week to help with the aches and pains of pregnancy, which helps a lot. I truly believe that acupuncture played a critical role in the success of our conceiving and Christine was truly wonderful to work with as well as incredibly knowledgeable. I am due in October and we can't wait!!"

"Prior to seeing Christine Kleinschmidt, I did not have a menstrual cycle for over two years. With acupuncture and Chinese herbs, after two months of treatment I had my first cycle, and continued to have regular menstruation in the months to follow. I am now six months pregnant and feel like I owe it all to Christine. I continue to get acupuncture on a regular basis and feel better than ever."

"After suffering with an eating disorder for many years, and anxiety and depression for the last 10 months, my medical doctor recommended a therapist and prescribed anti-depressant medication. Seeking a more holistic method, I chose to try acupuncture first. After a few treatments with Christine, I have been able to control my food cravings and have also lost some weight. I have begun to feel like my old self again, without medication."

"Thank you both so much for an amazing experience for me in my visits with you guys! I cannot even begin to explain how pleased I am about the treatments you both gave me!!! I will be sure to refer you to friends and family and anyone I know going through the same fertility challenge we are going through. Thanks again!"

"I have seen many chiropractors and acupuncturists over the years, but I have finally found a home at Wellbody! Greg and Christine have created a peaceful space where they are committed to taking the time to get to know the people they are helping and the pain they are dealing with. I had chronic hip and shoulder pain when I first came to Wellbody. Greg and Christine helped me figure out how to eliminate it with massage, adjustments and acupuncture and beyond that Greg gave me exercises that kept it from coming back. I am happy to say that the pain is gone! Thank you, Greg and Christine, for helping me stay healthy and happy! I wholeheartedly recommend these folks and their talents and expertise."
