We work with our fertility patients to promote physical, mental, and emotional health. When you receive supportive, empowering care that embraces you as a whole person with unique needs, you can experience vibrant changes and your fertility benefits. We utilize a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle education to address the multifaceted needs of each of our patients. There are many ways acupuncture and herbal medicine can benefit fertility, including regulating the menstrual cycle, increasing circulation to the reproductive organs, reducing inflammation, balancing reproductive hormones, and helping mitigate the effects of stress on the body. We work with folks to address their individual needs and cultivate a wellness plan that works to optimize their chances of conception.
What we commonly treat in the clinic:
- Unexplained infertility
- Recurring miscarriage
- Support before, during, and after IVF/IUI
- Irregular cycle (long, short, heavy, light, no period)
- Endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS
- Stress, low energy and concentration
- Sleep disruption
- Emotional health, anxiety, depression
IVF/IUI Support: There is compelling research that acupuncture improves IVF outcomes. In these studies acupuncture treatments are typically performed immediately pre and post embryo transfer; for this reason several fertility clinics have space set up for these types of treatment. However, the needs of every patient are unique and there is flexibility in the timing and utilization of acupuncture in conjunction with IVF/IUI. We work with folks to find a plan that fits their situation, needs, and budget. Treatments may take place in our office, at the fertility clinic, or in your home on the day of or days surrounding embryo transfer. Some folks choose several treatments beginning in the weeks leading up to transfer, some choose just a pre or post transfer session. We are flexible in our approach and respect the varied ways our patients seek support during this time.
