A Life of Optimal Health and Wellness is Waiting For You

Our reproductive health is an indicator for many of our current and future health outcomes. Our hormones determine how we move through our fertile years – whether or not we are making babies – transition through menopause with ease, and welcome our senior years with strong bones and a healthy heart.

Has it been harder to get pregnant than you expected? Are you having difficulty with headaches, hot flashes or sugar cravings? How easy is it for you to quiet your mind, take time for a deep breath, or find the clarity you need to make your health a top priority again?

You are not alone. Millions of people are also struggling with these same concerns. Our bodies do give us warning signs, whether it’s burn-out, extra weight, fatigue, sleep difficulties, chronic menstrual cramps, irregular menstrual cycles, infertility, night sweats, depression, anxiety, or chronic pain.

The good news is that, no matter how long you have felt out-of-sorts,  there are indeed powerful, all-natural, and holistic solutions to restore your reproductive health and reclaim a life of optimal wellness, balance, and joy through the health care services we provide.

You’ll notice the difference from the moment you walk in our door. It’s peaceful here. Our philosophy is not just to work on your body’s symptoms – we know it’s equally important to rebalance your constitution, tend to your emotions, and nourish your spirit. We want you to be as as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Our treatment rooms are private and dimly lit. We play soft relaxing music and use sheets and cozy blankets instead of table paper. Many of our patients tell us that they appreciate this specialized care, and look forward to their next visit as we invite a personal respite from the busy and chaotic outside world.

Everything we do is based on our belief that we are all participants in creating a safe, just, equitable, happier and healthier world.

We look forward to working with the totality of your being – body, mind and spirit.

I’m Cally Huttar (she/her/hers), PhD, LAc, FABORM, acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist, with a doctorate in depth psychology, and founder of Lotus Leaf Acupuncture & Wellness Center. I also hold board certification in Reproductive Acupuncture from ABORM, and I am member of the Obstetrical Acupuncture Association (OBAA) with advanced training and certification in perinatal acupuncture with Maternity Acupuncture and Peer Support (MAMPS) .

I understand how challenging and overwhelming it can be on your fertility journey. I also know how confusing and contradictory the medical advice is in treating our physical discomfort and emotional swings as we transition through menopause. I can relate to the fear and hopelessness that come with unresolved questions and the frustration of short-term suppression of symptoms. I also know the relief and joy that is available when the root cause is identified and treated and optimal health and well-being is achieved, whether is it is a healthy pregnancy, birth experience, baby, or choosing to live child-free with deep happiness in a strong body as you age into your senior years.

My name is Maria Hunter, MAcAOM, LAc, FABORM (she/her) and I have dedicated my career to supporting reproductive wellness, preconception, pregnancy and the postpartum time. I have completed extensive post graduate studies in both fertility and pregnancy care. I am a FABORM, Fellow of the Acupuncture and TCM Board of Reproductive Medicine  (ABORM) a, MAMPS graduate and OBAA member.

I love working with women, women identifying, and gender non binary folx to help regulate cycles and hormones, alleviate symptoms that occur throughout the month, and support the heart and emotions during the journey. I’m here for the ups and downs and in-betweens, there is space for all of you and all that you are going through in my practice. I know the path to reproductive wellness looks different for each person and I am here to support you whether you are wanting to have more regular cycles or less pain with menses, are looking for help supporting your fertility for successful conception and pregnancy, or are going through IVF and looking for ways to manage side effects and boost chances of success.

Everyone deserves to have a family if that is their desire – I am here to support you in whichever way that presents itself and to the places it leads you. I take lots of time with each patient to really understand what is going on and to tailor plans and prescriptions to your specific needs. Chinese medicine is whole person medicine system, meaning we focus on your whole self when we are working towards your goals, not just symptom management. The whole body is connected, there is room for the whole self and everything it entails in my practice.

What Patients Say

“What a truly welcoming and warm environment. I felt so much love and support from Maria Hunter on my first appointment. Thank you.”

“Pregnant! What more can I say? Without Cally and her herbal remedies and acupuncture I would still be struggling with my fertility. Be patient, it takes time… but so worth the 6 months of treatment for us. We are thrilled beyond words! ”

“After 2 miscarriages in one year, I was feeling defeated and knew I had to change something in my life. I did a little research about acupuncture, and after searching online for a clinic nearby me I found Cally at Lotus Leaf Acupuncture & Wellness Center in Bellingham. She is really knowledgeable about all things to do with fertility. In addition she is kind and friendly, which makes having those conversations easier. She’s not judgmental and her straightforward approach was very appreciated. The needling was fine and nothing hurt. She’s a great listener; something I don’t find often with some doctors. This place is great, very calming and relaxing. Great location and overall good vibes. I am hopeful to try again.”

“I had 4 failed IVF transfers over 3 years and was really feeling hopeless until a friend recommended I make an appointment with Cally. Anyone who has been through this knows the pain and torment of this roller coaster emotional process, and I was reluctant to say the least. But Cally is amazing, and her expert care with acupuncture and Chinese herbs were magic. After 8 months of treatment she determined that my Blood was better that I was strong enough to try again for one more IVF and it worked! I now have a happy and healthy 6 month old BABY GIRL! For all you want-to-be moms out there, DON’T GIVE UP! Go see Cally today…”

“My work with Cally Huttar has transformed my life. I came in feeling hopeless after a long illness that left me debilitated, depressed and anxious. My life seemed unmanageable as I cycled through bouts of pain and inflammation with flare-ups from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Cally asked me a few simple but profound questions that changed everything. She helped me see how my thoughts were getting in my way, everything from changing my diet to quitting a job I hated that was literally sucking the life out of me. She carefully planned a treatment strategy with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, and I am now doing something I love, my energy is 100% better, my pain is manageable now (I see it as a barometer telling me when to slow down) I am eating nutritious and delicious food, and I am even meditating now!  I couldn’t have done this without her and I am eternally grateful.”

“My husband had poor morphology with his sperm, and our doctor recommended we try acupuncture, thank god! There is no way he would have agreed to the treaments unless a Western doctor recommended it! 6 months later and his semen analysis was Great! Cally said the treatments and herbs were aimed at clearing heat and inflammation that can damage sperm. In addition to the acupuncture, she encouraged my husband to only drink a few beers a week instead of every night. We are now pregnant and expecting our first baby in a few weeks! I am eternally grateful for Cally’s healing touch and skill.”

“I had no idea that my fallopian tubes were blocked, and I would have kept on trying all my natural ways until I went to see Cally at Lotus Leaf Acupuncture & Wellness Center and she recommended I go have an HSG. We had been trying for years to get pregnant naturally. We are both really healthy, eat well and exercise daily but nothing was working. Once we knew that conceiving naturally was impossible for us we tried IVF with the assistance of acupuncture and Chinese herbs with Cally. I cannot thank her enough for guiding us gently with her expert knowledge in reproductive medicine in a direction we would have never considered before. We are OVER the MOON with our 3 month old HEALTHY BABY BOY!”

“With Cally’s wisdom and compassionate care, I am completely off hormone replacement therapy with the use of Chinese herbs and acupuncture. Sleeping through the night with no hot flashes is a godsend!”
