“Marc… So, I’m pregnant! I’ve had two positive tests… Yay! Thank you!! We are so excited. I want to do what it takes to keep this one! Have a great day!”
Just wanted to let you the baby information:
Gavin was born on March 2, 2008 at 5:57am. He was 6 lbs 13.5 oz and 20.84 inches long.
I will be in contact when the baby and I have a regular routine. Thank you for all your help in making Gavin possible. We are forever grateful.”
I just wanted to share our great news with you! Our baby girl was born last week and things could not have gone better! My water broke on Sunday the 13th in the morning and she was born about 6 hours after our arrival. The labor and delivery went very well. My nurse, Pam kept saying that we were the envy of all the other nurses. She called it a text book labor and delivery. Both Kylie and I stayed strong and there were no complications at all.
My recovery has been great too!
Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for everything you have done to assist me in getting pregnant, sustaining a healthy pregnancy and delivery! By the way – you gave me the candles to put on my toes because she was breech at week 36 and a few days after starting the treatment, I had a sonogram and she had moved to head down. It was pretty funny to see my husband’s reaction when he saw what I was doing, but he is now a believer.
Thanks again for everything and I will be sure to express my gratitude with you and your practice with Dr. Rakoff and the OB-Gyn dept. at Scripps Carmel Valley. We are proud to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Kylie.”
Testimonial for Marc Sklar, Acupuncture and Herbal Treatment
“I initially went to see Marc to combat the tremendous amount of work-related stress I was experiencing. During our initial consultation he addressed this as well as many of areas of concern and explained his philosophy behind treating the whole person. This led to focus on my digestive system, PMS, and the regulation of my menstrual cycle. He guided me through these processes, explained the issues, and shared with me what I could expect during and after both acupuncture and herbal treatments.
I was so pleased to see results that were immediate and continued during the time between sessions. Because of this work I had been doing with Marc, when my husband and I decided to have a baby, my body was already in the process of regulating itself to a balanced state. This made the transition from taking birth control pills for the past 10 years to pregnancy both relaxed and healthy.
We are now 3 months pregnant and will continue to receive acupuncture treatments for a comfortable and healthful pregnancy. Marc’s expertise, patience, understanding, and genuine concern for my well-being was a refreshing change from traditional medicines. I have recommended several of my friends and family to his care and all have expressed the same appreciation for the successful results they have seen following treatment.”
just wanted to pass on our good news! Our babies were born Friday, March 7th and we are all home and doing well.

“Marc Sklar, Lac, DA treated me during the pregnancy of my first child in 2004-2005. I arrived to him through a referral by my midwife who told me that he could help me with the aches and pains of pregnancy WITHOUT the use of medications. She had stated that he was very sensitive to “women’s issues”. As I was not interested in taking any sort of medication, I turned to Marc for help. I began to seek medical attention for my pregnancy ailments, which included TMJ, Carpel Tunnel, Congestion, and Edema.”
“Not only was his office and staff inviting, but Marc’s whole attitude was so attentive. He listened to my issues, and after reviewing my medical history, he began to treat me accordingly through acupuncture. It was my first experience with acupuncture, and I felt very safe. Every treatment I went to, thereafter, would help me with pains, as well as aiding me in relaxing my body. As the pregnancy came to the end, I booked my final pregnancy related visit on my due date. I went in, full term, and was told that we would “help my body get moving along towards birth”. Not 5 hours later, I began labor. And it was later that night, within 6 hours of physically being at the hospital, that I gave birth vaginally to a very healthy baby boy. To this day, I credit him with helping me naturally be induced, as well as having a speedy delivery on my first baby.
I have been to see Marc since the baby for just overall health visits, and plan to see him again for the next baby. He is a very mindful, accommodating, and well educated provider who has only a genuine interest for the patient at heart. I have recommended him to all my friends, and will continue to recommend him in the future. It has been nothing but a pleasure to be under his care.”
“Hi Marc. I wanted to let you know that my ultrasound went well today. We saw a heartbeat and the placement of the fetus was where it should be. We are very pleased with the news and very hopeful that things will continue to go well this time around. Thanks for all of your help you really made this process much easier than I ever imagined! I look forward to my next visit with you!”
I’m leaving San Diego in a few days, and as you know, my almost 2 years here were far from easy and I can’t wait to get home. There are only a few things I’m going to miss about the last 2 years, and you are definitely one of them. And I wanted to thank you for that. And thank you for your service, and your time, for your (always smart and sensitive) advice, for your warmth and, dare I say, for your friendship.
As you know, I have been treated by many professionals over the years and I think you are one of a kind! I’m so happy that I had the privilege of meeting you. You taught me a lot and I only wish I came to you earlier.
Please send my regards to Gerald and Jamie Sue and thank them on my behalf for a wonderful and always friendly service.”
I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your miraculous treatment of my headache (and my backache). Since my pregnancy began I have had increased headaches and back pain from the twins. My headache kept decreasing after I left your office and I woke up totally headache free the next day. It was such a relief! In our household you got selected for the Miracle Man of the Year 2007 award! Thank you so much!
I will see you on Monday.”
“After years of infertility and depression, I had a friend tell me about Marc Sklar. I had been on and off of the infertility drug Clomid for about three years when I walked into Marc’s office. I never ovulate. But after only five months of treatments and herbs along with Marc’s professionalism and desire to help I got pregnant. I had a history of miscarriages and amazingly found myself almost eight weeks pregnant before I even found out. I had never held a pregnancy more than about two weeks before coming to see Marc.”
