Rejuvenate Your Fertility with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Generally, acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treat the body's root imbalances and the body's symptoms are thereby alleviated. This theory applies to fertility as much as to any other condition. A woman's natural balanced state, from the time she begins menstruating to the time she begins menopause, is a state of "potentially conceiving." A deviation from this state does not necessarily imply "infertility;" it simply means a shift from one's optimum reproductive health.

IVF and other Assisted Reproductive Therapies

Many couples today are employing the assisted reproductive therapies of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Intra Uterine Injections (IUI). A common and effective practice of TCM today is to have an acupuncture treatment immediately before and immediately after IVF. Studies have shown this practice to increase the number of resulting pregnancies by much as 60% as compared to IVF treatments that did not employ TCM concurrently.

How long will I have to take treatments?

Typically 3-6 months, 1-2 weekly visits. However, treatment inevitably varies from patient to patient.
