Fertility and Women's Health

 

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine truly excels at treating and supporting women's health!  With its emphasis on holism and prevention, Chinese medicine effectively treats a variety of women’s health conditions in the least invasive manner possible. Whether you're experiencing irregular menstrual cycles, difficult menopausal symptoms, PCOS, trying to conceive naturally or with assisted reproductive therapies (ART) acupuncture is a safe, gentle and effective approach to strengthen your body by treating the underlying root cause of reproductive issues. By gently
re-establishing the natural flow inherent in a woman’s cycle, treatments can address any stage of a woman’s life to achieve optimum health and balance.

Both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are compatible and complementary when used in conjunction with western medical treatments such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Treatments can greatly increase the likelihood of successful pregnancies. Whether you're just starting to plan a family, working with your OB or other reproductive specialist, acupuncture and Chinese medicine are supportive adjunct services to any fertility treatment protocol.

Stress plays a significant role and is often overlooked throughout this process. It's impact on a woman's body is always treated as a potential underlying cause of infertility. My treatment approach is to help improve patient response by promoting a calm, stress-free environment to optimize the body's ability for a successful, full-term pregnancy. I recommend beginning treatments as soon as possible due to the cumulative effects acupuncture has in preparing the body for pregnancy.
