We love our clients.
Seeing Mary for acupuncture was one of the most supportive, healing, and uplifting parts of my fertility journey. I started seeing Mary after my first round of IVF ended in a miscarriage. She listened to what I was going through, validated my feelings, and gave me hope that I would have another baby someday. I saw Mary while prepping for my next transfer which thankfully resulted in pregnancy and continued seeing her throughout my pregnancy until the birth of our beautiful baby boy in February 2021! Mary is kind, comforting, gentle, and truly the godmother of the South Shore! Thank you, Mary, for playing an instrumental role in helping to grow our family.
Mary is the best! She offers an incredibly comfortable and inviting environment and has a wonderful way about her. I was given a less-than-5% likelihood that IVF would work for my second pregnancy, but she stood by me the whole way and we did it! Thank you a million times, Mary Egan!!
Our little miracle is here and a pivotal point in our journey to conceive was seeing Mary! She was heaven sent when I needed her most and I didn’t even know then the impact she would have on me. After an unexpected ectopic pregnancy and an emergency salpingectomy I struggled emotionally and physically. Emotionally, the heartbreak and the fear were overwhelming and very hard to navigate while also struggling physically to recover after surgery and trying to get my body to “normal”. My period became very unpredictable and extremely painful which made it difficult as we tried once again to conceive.
After about a year trying and with the hopes to conceive naturally, my OB suggested trying acupuncture and spoke very highly of Mary. Considering the amazing recommendation and reviews, I really wanted her to be my acupuncturist even when I had to wait 4 months for my first appointment; it was totally worth the wait! Since then, Mary has been so patient, kind, supportive and encouraging- she helped me with my healing process and helped me regain hope that I could have a successful & healthy pregnancy. After one month of treatment, my period finally arrived for the first time in months and the pain was manageable (I couldn’t believe it!). In that next cycle I finally saw the smiley face in the ovulation strips and I remember it was the happiest and most hopeful I had been in the past year. I remained committed to my weekly sessions and to my surprise, a few weeks later I was pregnant.
Even after getting pregnant, fear of a loss remained in the back of my mind and every appointment Mary continued to extend kindness and encouragement. I am so happy I had her treating and supporting me throughout my full pregnancy up until week 39 when our little one joined our family. It was such a beautiful experience of growth and connection with our baby that I will treasure forever. Words cannot express how eternally grateful me and my husband are to Mary. It is a true blessing to have such an amazing and inspiring woman and professional as part of our journey. She continues to have an impact now throughout my fourth trimester (postpartum) and whenever we start our journey for baby #2 we can’t imagine doing it without her.
I started seeing Mary after multiple failed rounds of trying to get pregnant. It was suggested to me to try acupuncture. At that point, I was ready to try anything. I stumbled across Mary’s business and I am so grateful I did. She not only helped me heal from the sadness I was feeling, but she also played a crucial role in helping me finally get pregnant. She was so kind and caring, and she listened to me and made every effort to help me conceive. She gave me sound advice that was realistic. She was able to point things out to me that I didn’t even know I should’ve been doing for my body. Her practice is professional, nurturing, and healing. If you’re looking for acupuncture and results you need to see Mary. She has a gift and I’m grateful that I was able to receive it. I was able to welcome a beautiful baby boy into this world and I’m thankful I sought her services out, and listened to everything she suggested I do.
“I have been seeing Mary Egan for acupuncture for over 2 years, and she has had an extremely positive influence on my life. I started seeing her for help managing anxiety that became severe for me after I suffered a miscarriage. She helped me with that anxiety tremendously by explaining the benefits of acupuncture for both mind and body, and by reassuring me in ways that doctors couldn’t always do (even though they told me everything was fine and that I shouldn’t have trouble getting pregnant again). I am now expecting my first child, and I feel strongly that Mary’s techniques helped me manage my anxiety and helped my cycle stay regular so that I was able to conceive relatively quickly. I also feel strongly that acupuncture has helped me stay calm and healthy throughout my pregnancy. Mary’s knowledge of acupuncture and its benefits for women’s health issues is extensive, and she really takes the time to understand the people she’s working with. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you, Mary!!”
I started seeing Mary Egan after struggling to get pregnant for a year and a half. We were told we would need IVF and in the meantime “might as well try acupuncture”. The first time I saw her she told me that I needed my mind and body to align and get my anxiety under control before I could carry a healthy pregnancy. She asked to give her six months before making a decision if acupuncture was for us. We were shocked when I received a positive test three days before our first IVF meeting (exactly six months later). With our second child, we tried unsuccessfully for nine months and realized that the only thing missing/different this time around was acupuncture. This time, she had a different approach and told me I was in a much better place and it would only take a few months to get everything aligned. Three months later, I was pregnant. With our third child (we are very fortunate), I met with her twice before getting pregnant. My husband and I both truly believe she is the reason we have three beautiful children.
“I started seeing Mary to help regulate my cycles in the hope of becoming pregnant. I had been off birth control for a few months and was experiencing irregular cycles and hadn’t started ovulating again. After two months of seeing Mary, my cycles were regulated and I found myself pregnant! Mary is so knowledgeable and positive and assured me that she would help get me pregnant…and sure enough, she was right! She really helped calm my nerves throughout the entire process. I cannot recommend Mary enough to anyone! Today, I am 12 and a half weeks pregnant and continue to see Mary (especially to help out with that all day “morning” sickness).”
“After unsuccessfully trying to conceive for many months, I was willing to try anything and read that acupuncture has been found to improve fertility. From my first consultation with Mary I was immediately put at ease and any hesitations I had went out the door. Not only was Mary clearly an expert in acupuncture, but she also has years of experience in the Western medical world of fertility. I started going to weekly sessions and after only three months my cycles were regulated and I noticed overall improvements in my physical health. Besides the physical aspect, my acupuncture sessions left me feeling relaxed and much more at peace with the process of trying to conceive. I also looked forward to seeing Mary for her expert advice and constant positivity and support. She became not only my acupuncturist but also a dear friend. After just six months of treatment, I successfully conceived and am now six months pregnant! I cannot recommend Mary enough for anyone who is in the same place that I was, or for anyone looking to make improvements in their overall physical and emotional well-being.”
“I don’t think that I will ever be able to say that I’m so grateful to be blessed with the issue of infertility. It’s not something I would wish on my worst enemy. What I can say, however, is I am truly grateful for the opportunities and people that infertility placed in my life and Mary Egan is one of them.
I have to say I was not an immediate convert to acupuncture. Prior to meeting Mary, I saw many practitioners who were skilled but somehow lacked making any connection for me physically, emotionally and spiritually. Many had empathy about what I was going through, but no one offered me the compassion, grace, strength, and endurance that being a patient with Mary has brought to me. From the moment I met her, I felt understood and cared for. Having spent years facing doctors and fertility specialists, alone, meeting Mary and starting treatment with her ended this feeling of being alone. Acupuncture treatment with Mary helped me find a connection between my heart, my mind, and my body and ended that sterile isolation that had been my life with IVF. While I continued to face loss for several months, for the first time I had a resource – Mary and her treatment- who helped realize I could get through whatever life was going to bring me- Baby or no Baby.
And here I am about to enter my third trimester with our daughter.
Mary Egan is so much more than a skilled practitioner. Her treatments offered me the final piece of the puzzle that connected all the dots. If you are suffering with fertility, with chronic pain. If your heart is hurting and you’re tired of being alone, see Mary. Her healing energy and grace and skill is beyond anything I’ve experienced. She is hands down the most creative and thorough medical healer I’ve ever met. Mary is Committed to her practice- educating herself and bringing these new ideas to treat the whole patient- not just your body. I continue to find strength and support courage healing and direction from her.”
“As a woman in my mid 40’s I knew I was already facing a challenge with my dream of getting pregnant and becoming a single mother. As you can imagine, the stress level was getting high. Around the same time I was grieving the loss of my father, I made the decision to try donor egg. I started weekly treatments with Mary with a focus on preparing my body for a series of donor egg IVF cycles. Everything about treatments with Mary was exceptional: easy to schedule convenient appointments; a soothing atmosphere; a warm, caring, skilful, and highly professional practitioner; and most importantly positive results. As my treatments progressed I found myself feeling amazingly well balanced: physically, emotionally and spiritually. I was amazed at how calm I started feeling despite what seemed like much stress around me. Today I am 17 and a half weeks pregnant and feeling amazing. I am continuing treatments with Mary although less frequent to stay balanced as I continue to prepare for motherhood. I could not be happier. If you’ve ever thought about acupuncture, give yourself this wonderful gift and give Mary a call. You will NOT be disappointed.”
I have been seeing Mary for roughly 4 years. I had been referred to her by a friend after I had been seeing another acupuncturist for about two years. I am being treated for an auto immune disease with lung involvement. To date I have not been on any medication(after being diagnosed ten years ago) and my goal is to stay that way. My sessions with Mary also focus on arthritis in my knees and my hand. The acupuncture helps to keep the pain to a minimum and keeps me calm and relaxed. I wish I lived closer to Mary as I would up my number of appointments. I can now feel when my body needs a session and it is amazing how rejuvenated I feel after a session. Acupuncture is a wonderful modality and I am grateful that I found Mary.
“I started seeing Mary when I was referred to a reproductive endocrinologist after over a year of trying to conceive and a miscarriage. After a diagnosis of a high FSH and a low ovarian reserve, IVF was my only treatment option. Knowing acupuncture was a great compliment to, and preparation for, IVF I started seeing Mary. From the start, she began working out emotional and physical ailments from previous miscarriages. Within weeks my FSH dropped, and after less than 6 months of acupuncture treatment, I conceived naturally. I am unbelievably thankful for Mary’s expertise, and guidance. I know without acupuncture I would have gone through difficult IVF cycles and the emotional and physical toll they take. In retrospect, I would have started acupuncture much earlier in trying to conceive, and am not shy about sharing that fact with friends and family. I am convinced even without infertility issues acupuncture is a great place to start when trying to conceive. It certainly helped align my body and mind in a way unaddressed by western medicine. Mary’s extensive knowledge of infertility and western treatment, along with her understanding and positive outlook make her an outstanding practitioner. I really can’t say enough about how fortunate I feel to have had Mary as an integral part of my journey.”
“I was referred to Mary from a friend who was also having difficulty getting pregnant. I have a son now who is almost 3 and have been trying for another for almost 2 years. After 2 miscarriages and an altered cycle, I went to see Mary Egan. She immediately made me feel comfortable and hopeful that this would be what works. I saw her weekly for a month and after that short time, I became pregnant. I am now 15 weeks along thanks to the fabulous work of Mary Egan. Seeing her has been such a wonderful experience. And now she is helping with the “morning” or all day sickness! I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with infertility. Thank you, Mary! I truly think you ROCK!!”
“I was diagnosed with PCOS after 6 months of trying to conceive. After several failed IUI’s and two rounds of IVF, my first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. I was devastated. I found Mary when I was at my lowest point during my fertility battles, and after the first appointment with her, I had a renewed, positive sense about my fertility. Mary was incredibly informative when it came to my struggle with PCOS. But not only was she a wealth of knowledge, she also had a level of compassion that gave me so much hope and filled me with an encouragement that I could never get in a doctor’s office. After weekly appointments for 3 months, I was able to conceive during a frozen embryo transfer cycle. Mary helped me get my body into a healthy balance that I don’t believe I have ever felt before. After conceiving I continued regular acupuncture appointments and was able to maintain a healthy pregnancy. I know that without Mary I would have struggled a lot longer. I am officially a firm believer in acupuncture for fertility and an even bigger believer in Mary!”
“I began seeing Mary in late summer of 2015 at the referral of a close friend. Having experienced a pregnancy loss due to chromosomal abnormality 6 months earlier, I was dealing with grief and the frantic desire to be pregnant again. My cycles were irregular and I was getting overwhelmed. In my first visit with Mary, I was instantly put at ease. Her knowledge of the situation I had been in and her knowledge of Eastern medicine was reassuring. Mary gave me many suggestions for how I could help “jump start” my body into regularity and increase my chances of getting pregnant. In all of my appointments, she always asked how I am feeling physically and emotionally and placed the needles in the right spots to help me heal. She has served as a therapist and acupuncturist for me in the few months I have been seeing her. To my delight, I found out in September that I was, in fact, pregnant again! I had many emotions and a lot of anxiety to manage leading up to my first ultrasound. Mary was an amazing support during this time. To my shock, we found out at the end of October that we are expecting TWINS! Mary was one of my first contacts after learning our news; I had to tell her there was magic in her needles! For me, seeing Mary gave me a feeling of taking control over my situation and the ability to relax about getting pregnant again. I was following her advice and doing everything I could to help myself heal from my loss and try to get pregnant. I tell everyone with any sort of issue to see Mary, she truly is an amazing healer! Thank you, Mary!”
“I highly recommend Mary Egan acupuncture for anyone struggling with fertility. After 4 failed rounds of IVF, a friend suggested I visit Mary Egan. I have found acupuncture with other practitioners successful at treating my migraines so I thought I would give it a try. Mary was so informative and helpful while also being realistic on the changes I needed to make in my life to increase my chances of a successful pregnancy. After several months of weekly treatments with Mary, I started my fifth round of IVF which resulted in a twin pregnancy. My husband and I could not be more excited. Mary made our dreams come true! She is extremely knowledgeable, comforting and straight forward which I appreciate very much. I also recommended a friend to see Mary after struggling with fertility is well and she is also pregnant today! Infertility is extremely stressful and Mary helps ease all facets of the process with her treatments, expertise and calming demeanor. Give her a try! You’ll be glad you did!”
“I cannot recommend Mary enough! I started seeing her when I was seven weeks pregnant and experiencing severe morning sickness. I saw her about once a week for treatment and was able to find some relief from my morning sickness. At about 22 weeks, the nausea finally wore off. I was so impressed with Mary’s knowledge and demeanor, I continued seeing her throughout my pregnancy to keep my body balanced and relaxed. At 38 weeks, I delivered my (healthy and beautiful) son. My labor was amazing! Quick (total of six hours!) and smooth. I really couldn’t have dreamed for a better labor and I attribute it Mary. Throughout my pregnancy, she listened to my symptoms and devised a treatment for me.”
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Mary for a couple of years now. When I was first diagnosed with infertility (specifically, low ovarian reserve), I searched extensively for the best acupuncturist who specializes in infertility. That’s when I was so fortunate to meet Mary and begin adding acupuncture care into my routine. She was so informative, caring and nurturing during that first phone conversation, I knew from the start I was in good hands.
The infertility journey has taken me through 6 months of aggressive fertility treatment, including: 3 failed IUI cycles, 3 failed IVF cycles and a common bleak prognosis from 3 different fertility specialists. I was given a 0-2% chance of a successful spontaneous pregnancy and even less for delivering a healthy baby.
Through it all, I continued with my routine acupuncture appointments. It was a key component of not only maintaining balance during the journey, but also helped to maintain my sense of calm both physically and mentally. I work in western medicine, and sometimes even in my own practice western medicine isn’t the sole answer. Thinking outside of the box is key in regards to combining a successful outcome, that being a joint approach of both western and eastern practices. So I did just that. I admit, initially, I was hesitant about the herbs, but then I decided I would keep all of my options open, as I truly had nothing to lose. So I continued my practice of acupuncture through Mary’s expertise and skilled guidance. After the western course failures, I dove deep into the herbs, diet and immune cleanse in the fall of 2016 and continued the course. To my surprise, I had an emergent ectopic in early 2017. Despite the loss, I was so hopeful that I was able to get pregnant spontaneously. I took it as a cautiously optimistic sign. I continued with the same approach with the strict diet, immune cleanse and routine acupuncture course. Then in the late summer of 2017, I was pleasantly surprised that I was successfully spontaneously pregnant.
Mary’s acupuncture expertise and whole body approach has been a constant source of strength during my entire journey. Not only has it helped maintain physical and mental balance, but it has provided me an invaluable tool to restore a sense of positivity. Although, I thought I did, I truly did not realize how stressed and unbalanced I was before. I now believe and see how acupuncture has restored my body in preparation through all of the physical and mental changes and challenges during the fertility treatments, but has also been a tremendous benefit in managing stress, balance, edema and the discomforts associated with pregnancy as well. There are so many applications of acupuncture and I feel incredibly fortunate to have received those benefits through Mary’s care and expertise.”
“My experience with Mary has been simply wonderful. I was referred to Mary by a friend after my first pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage. I am no happily 12 weeks pregnant and feeling great! I know that acupuncture and a renewed focus on personal health have helped me have a healthier pregnancy, I have always had frequent headaches, and I was tired of constantly taking medication. Since starting acupuncture, I have noticed a decrease in the frequency and severity of headaches, and have been able to take less medication as a result. The other major improvement has been in my sleep! I never thought of myself as a poor sleeper, but I now fall asleep instantly and sleep better through the night.
If you have ever thought about trying acupuncture, I cannot recommend Mary Egan highly enough. She is warm and knowledgable, and spends time getting to know you in order to personalize your treatment. The time you spend in her treatment space will become something you truly look forward to.”
