I’m Heidi Brockmyre, M.S. L.Ac, fertility expert & experienced acupuncturist
And in my San Diego clinic, my team and I use acupuncture, shamanic healing and other holistic medicines to improve the wellbeing of our clients, including those struggling with specific health complaints, and women who are trying to conceive, are pregnant, or are in postpartum recovery.
Fifteen years ago, I was teaching English in Korea and traveling through Asia and Central America, when I felt the ‘pull’ towards learning how to heal people naturally.
I followed my heart and it led me to studying martial arts, herbology, and traditional Mayan medicine from indigenous healers of Belize and then getting my Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego.
I wanted to be someone who did good things for others.
So I trained to become a licensed acupuncturist. While I was in acupuncture school, I used Chinese medicine to enhance my own fertility and well-being, and fell pregnant with my son. Chinese medicine has remained an integral part of family life: supporting me during pregnancy, a natural birth, postpartum recovery, breastfeeding. And I’ve relied on it to keep my son healthy throughout his childhood.
The relationship I have with my son, and my personal experience of Chinese medicine, inspired me to specialize in helping women conceive beautiful, healthy babies.
In the early years of my business, I worked with hundreds of women in my San Diego clinic, but I wanted to help more.
Since then I have continued to develop more programs to help women all over the world take control of their fertility health, while in San Diego, my acupuncture clinic continues to treat people with a variety of health conditions, including fertility struggles. I also run a mentorship program to help other acupuncturists achieve the same global reach I have, so that together we can create a worldwide health paradigm shift.
And now that I have completed an apprenticeship, I’m adding Shamanic healing to the services we provide at the clinic in San Diego.
In May 2014, I travelled to Peru and stayed at the Nihue Rao Spiritual Healing Center in the Amazon. I’ve returned to Peru multiple times to immerse myself in the shamanic experience and learn Shipibo traditional shamanic medicine.
I love the Shamanic approach because it’s deeply healing on an emotional/spiritual/psychological level, where the roots of physical problems lie. This depth of healing makes us feel more connected, a deeper sense of belonging, more fulfilled and empowered in our lives to actualize our wildest dreams. It also connects us to the earth and our ancestors, inspiring us to contribute positively to the world.
I feel hugely blessed to run a business doing the work I love, using powerful ancient healing techniques to help my clients with their modern day problems.
