"I think Heidi is really at the top of her field.  In addition to her skill, she is accessible, caring, warm, and funny."

I’m Heidi, founder of the Heidi Brockmyre Acupuncture Clinic in San Diego, California.

 I’m a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego.  I have been helping people experience improved wellness, and increased fertility for more than 10 years.

I am ably assisted at the clinic by Sandra McKay, L.Ac., M.S.

 
 
 
 

I’m Sandra, acupuncture practitioner at the Heidi Brockmyre Acupuncture Clinic.

I was raised on a 20 acre farm in Northwest Washington with an organic garden, fresh eggs and local salmon.  My parents always tried a holistic approach before turning to western medicine. I even watched my siblings come into this world at home with the help of a local midwife, so specializing in fertility acupuncture felt like the natural choice for me.

 
 
"I started seeing Sandra after being diagnosed with endometriosis….The only relief I felt during that time of the month was from my acupuncture visits."
 
 

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture treats everything from infertility, pregnancy symptoms, miscarriage, back pain, migraines, digestive problems, and stress.  

It works by balancing the "qi" throughout your body.  Qi is the vital energy in all living things, from the tallest tree to the smallest cell.

Acupuncture meridians are like rivers inside the body.  Wherever a river flows, it carries water that provides nourishment and sustenance for life on our planet.  When a river runs dry or bottlenecks, animals, plants and all forms of life either go thirsty or get damaged by the excess flow.

Similarly, meridians are the rivers where Qi flows inside of us.  Qi flows through meridians as an invisible current, energizing, nourishing and supporting every cell, gland, muscle, organ, and gland.

When blood and qi flow get blocked, it causes disease.  Acupuncture works by unblocking blood and qi flow and redirecting it the areas that need it.  

 
 
 

What to expect from your personalized treatment

Chinese medicine is a medical system over 3000 years old. It includes not only acupuncture, but Chinese herbal prescriptions, but also lifestyle and nutrition advice.

Our goal is to develop a plan for you to take control over your health and experience improved well-being by balancing your system.

What you do at home is equally if not more important than what your healthcare practitioner does for you during treatment. With our expertise and guidance, you’ll know exactly what to do in your daily life to feel better than ever before.

 
 

Not only will you receive acupuncture, but also personalized:

 
  • Nutrition and dietary advice
  • Lifestyle recommendations
  • Custom herbal prescriptions
 
 

"I started going to her in April (every week) and after a few visits she educated me on various herbs, diet recommendations, etc. She also has a ton of insight into doctors and specialists." -

Does It Hurt?

Most patients don’t feel the needles go in. They are tiny, hair-thin needles that penetrate just the surface are rarely inserted more than a couple millimeters. I prefer to call them antennas because that’s a more accurate description of what they do. Plus the word “needle” triggers fear in many people.

Oddly enough, acupuncture is deeply relaxing. I know being poked with needles sounds like a form of torture, but it induces a unique relaxation experience unlike any other. The feeling of relaxation and wellbeing can last for hours. A feeling of reduced anxiety and stress and improved sleep often lasts for days.

The needles are sterile and used only once and then disposed of in a Sharps container. Nothing goes into the needles or comes out of them.

We never insert needles into your ‘private areas’ - no matter what health condition you are seeking help for (Men seeking fertility treatment often fear this possibility and need to be reassured that this is not the case.)

"While Heidi's acupuncture services are based in Eastern philosophies, she certainly does not discount the Western approach to infertility, and was extremely helpful in providing resources, recommendations, and pre and post-IVF treatments."

Shamanic Healing - Healing on a deeper level

 
 
 

The Shamanic approach is deeply healing on an emotional, spiritual, and psychological level. The depth of this 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 offer 1:1 shamanic healing at my San Diego clinic - including developing sacred plant connections while on a shamanic diet, drum journeys, sound healing and life coaching.

Please contact the clinic at 619-518-6608 or email heidi@heidibrockmyre.com to find out more.

We are located at 3065 Rosecrans Place, Suite 104 in Point Loma, San Diego:
