Fertility and Pregnancy Treatment


Chinese Medicine has enhanced fertility for thousands of years. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can strongly influence the reproductive and endocrine systems, it can help address a wide variety of women’s health concerns that may hinder fertility. 

While increasing fertility is an obvious goal it is not the only thing that is focused on with this approach.  On a broader level the approach is to restore and maximize health and healthy women are more likely to become pregnant, have healthy pregnancies and give birth with less complications.  This may entail using acupuncture or herbs alone, or in conjunction with conventional Assisted Reproductive Technologies like IUI or IVF.
