Maybe you just got off the pill, have been “seeing what happens” or you just suffered a miscarriage.


Sometimes you have a surprise pregnancy with #1 and "unexplained secondary infertility" with #2.  


Or you already had 3 IUI’s and next week is your egg retrieval for IVF. Discover how acupuncture and pregnancy and even acupuncture and IVF can work for you!


Where ever you are in your fertility journey, we will design a comprehensive program just for you!

We have combined modern research using Functional Medicine and

ancient Chinese medicine to create your successful fertility plan.


Acupuncture has been proven to:

  • Improve the function of the ovaries to produce better quality eggs.

  • Regulate hormones to produce larger numbers of follicles.

  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries thereby increasing both ovarian sensitivity to gonadotropins and the uterine lining for implantation.

  • Relax the patient to induce parasympathetic nervous system dominance.

  • Lessen many of the unwanted side-effects of ART treatment.

  • Mitigate the downstream effects of IVF stimulation in the uterine environment to enhance implantation and ongoing pregnancy rates.

  • Decrease miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy rates.

  • Improve semen densities in male factor infertility

  • Enhance conception in ART cycles: IUI, IVF, FET, Surrogacy.

  • Promote a healthy ongoing pregnancy without complications, and a healthy postpartum period.


Acupuncture is a great addition to your fertility plan if you are trying on your own or are including IUI and IVF.


Your personalized Fertility Plan will include acupuncture, whole body health review to determine underlying

issues contributing to fertility, current supplement review and new recommendations.  


From pre-conception to the dreaded two-week wait to a healthy delivery and everywhere in between, we'll use the proven techniques of acupuncture, functional medicine and nutrition to give you personalized treatment.
