  • Help normalize reproductive hormones
  • Promote blood blow to the uterus and ovaries
  • Improve ovarian function which includes follicle and egg quantity and quality
  • Reduce uterine contractions after IVF assisting implantation
  • Reduce miscarriage and recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL)
  • Assist in thickening the uterine lining
  • Improve sperm count, motility and morphology
  • Does it hurt?
    No, acupuncture is a very gentle and relaxing protocol! The needles are very thin -hairline.
    You may feel a tiny pinch or nothing. It is safe with little or no side effects. In fact, I treat children. Women can be treated all the way through pregnancy in high risk cases, or to counter the effects of morning sickness, fatigue, headaches, edema, back pain, etc.
    What can I expect at my first visit?

    The acupuncturist will go through your medical history and discuss your signs and symptoms. They look at your tongue and check your pulse and explain how they can best help you based on your symptoms and your fertility goals. Nutrition, diet and lifestyle are also important part of becoming pregnant and are discussed. I will explain an appropriate treatment plan for you. TCM practitioners work closely with fertility specialists and are an important part of an IUI or IVF cycle. If you are trying naturally, yes, we also have great success.
    So, if you have unexplained infertility, male factor issues, are trying naturally or have had a poor response to IVF do not be discouraged--conception, pregnancy and delivery are a journey and I am here to help each and everyone of you succeed. Many insurances now cover acupuncture!
