Achieves her dream of natural conception after many years of trying
Dr. Z is an an incredibly caring and compassionate healthcare professional. I began seeing him last April for fertility enhancement following a miscarriage. I was anxious to heal, move on, and conceive again right away. He helped me to slow down and patiently allow my body the time and resources to get in optimal shape for carrying a baby. As a result, I am now 20 weeks pregnant, feeling fantastic, and progressing perfectly. I come from a family full of chiropractors, an acupuncturist, and an LMT, and I am a yoga teacher myself, so natural health and healing have always been a way of life for me. Not living near my family, I seek out outside care to help me maintain my wellness, and my standards for the providers I choose is very high. Dr. Z stands out as a singularly gifted healer.
When we looked into acupuncture it was to help increase the odds of IVF treatment. We decided to meet Dr. Zurawin because of his personal story and reviews we saw about his practice. He was very open to all of our questions and providing us with great information. When we left the office my husband and I felt very comfortable placing our fertility issues in Dr. Zurawin’s hands. We were not going to start IVF for at least 6 months and we going to give acupuncture and Dr. Zurawin our full faith and attention. We started treatments right away, as ovulation was fast approaching. Within 2 weeks of meeting Dr. Zurawin we were PREGNANT!!!! After 2 years of trying and fertility treatments, a few needles and an open mind helped us get our baby. (Yes it’s way more then that) I learned a lot from Dr. Zurawin and highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking alternative treatments to infertility or high risk pregnancy. I visited with Dr. Zurawin and his wife Yumi throughout our pregnancy. I definitely attribute our successfully pregnancy to Dr. Zurawin and his practice.
Ease. Clarity. Alignment. Trust. Joy. Comfort. Transformation. These are some of the words that come to mind when I reflect on my sessions at Lifegate Acupuncture. I am very thankful to Dr. Jeff for his compassionate nature, his talent, and his beautiful inviting clinic space
Dr. Zurawin is one of those rare doctors who really LISTENS to his patients. He spends the time to evaluate your individual needs, listening to your concerns, and come up with a plan of action. I have been seeing Dr Z for a few weeks now in hopes of getting pregnant. I know it will be a journey. The only reason I did not rate him 5 stars today is I am waiting to see if this treatment will work for me :)) So far so good….Other doctors could learn a few lessons from Dr Z’s bed side manners. He is genuine and truly wants to help people! Every time I leave after an appointment, I feel less anxiety and my appetite has improved. I would definitely recommend Dr Z!
Update August 4, 2012
My husband and I just found out we are expecting our first baby!
We had tried so many traditional avenue of so called “specialists” but had no real success to get pregnant. After a few months of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and food changes, Dr. Zurawin was able to help me regulate my cycle. His methods helped balance my body back to normal and we were able to conceive.
Dr. Z’s personal approach and follow up makes him the exception in medicine today. I wish more doctors cared for their patients the way Dr. Z did. He is a gem! I have recommended him on multiple occasions.
I have had a wonderful experience at Lifegate Acupuncture! I was having a lot of pain and was considering major surgery to try to remedy the problem. I went to Dr. Zurawin and he took his time listening to my history and evaluating my condition. He was optimistic that he could help me. After just a few treatments, I was 90% better. I have continued to see him as recommended and I feel like a million bucks! It’s amazing how being pain-free feels – I am happier, I have more energy, and I can get on with the important things in my life. I am seeing benefits beyond what I had hoped for. I would highly recommend Lifegate Acupuncture to anyone!
I have suffered from infertility for years and it feels like my husband and I have been through quite a journey. A few surgeries and specialists later we decided to try acupuncture before going down the IVF route. I can wholeheartedly say that I could not have made a better decision than to seek treatment from Dr. Zurawin! His compassion for your case is truly heartwarming. He spends as much time as needed to make you feel comfortable and to understand the path on which he has set you on. Over the months I can tell that my body feels more balanced in all areas of health and my emotional nerves have calmed. In all the years we have been trying I have yet to have any luck getting pregnant, until I saw Dr Z. I have now been able to get pregnant twice and even though I have not been able to carry to term yet, I know I will get there with Dr. Z’s help. I truly attribute my pregnancies to him. Just when I thought I was at my wits end, I was given this gift of knowledge knowing that my body could become pregnant. Dr. Z is always confident and optimistic and I know through his treatment plan my husband and I will have our baby.
I have also had the privilege of utilizing Lifegate’s other services by getting a massage form his talented and certified wife Yumiko. She gave me one of the best if not the best massage I have ever experienced! She is extremely professional and truly knows her craft. She provided different techniques that I have never experienced before, but wish I would have as they helped tremendously for all different muscle groups. The muscle areas that needed extra attention were met with perfection and innovation. I can’t wait until I can see her again!
The dream team, as I call them, are a rare example of professionals that treat you as a human being, versus a number in a waiting room. Highly recommend Lifegate Acupuncture to all!

Here’s How Our Unique Combination of FOUR Very Potent, Time-Tested 100% Natural Therapies Work To Bring The Body To Heal Itself
Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues.
Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat hormonal conditions including thyroid, menstrual disorders, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.
Functional Nutritional Therapy
When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because the body’s key systems are optimized.
Relaxation and Stress-Reduction
When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.
Our Proven Process
At your initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your fertility issues including current symptoms, medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.
Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan
Once your initial consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of attack.
Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root cause of your fertility issues and address your most pressing symptoms.
Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution
You’ll return for weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results:
- Less or no pain
- Normalized menstrual flow
- Level, stable mood
- Balanced hormones
- No abnormal bleeding between periods
You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your progress is cumulative and that your monthly cycle is well balanced to achieve the best conceivable cycle..
Transitional Care As Things Stabilize
Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs within the first 2 months. Initially you’ll come in weekly, then as your condition improves the frequency becomes less. We re-evaluate your case with you periodically and fine tune as needed until we achieve the desired results.
We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.
Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.
Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones
We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.
So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.
