Acupuncture Can Optimize Fertility for Men & Women

Updated: Nov 4, 2020

Did you know Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Therapies can help optimize your fertility and conception readiness? If you are looking ahead towards getting pregnant - whether naturally or through assisted reproductive technology (IVF, IUI, etc.) - consider taking the time you need to get ready first.

Think of yourself as a "garden" - and imagine all the time, energy and care you put into getting the soil ready for planting. This is what is required of you to prepare for pregnancy - the quality of the soil and the systems in place to support it - dictate the health of the seeds that grow there.

This takes time and planning. One must add nutrients and create a "fertile" ph-balance, ensure the irrigation system is efficient (not too much, not too little), allowing for the right amount of sunshine and shade, turn the soil for aeration, and tend to that garden bed until its ready for planting.

We work with each person to create a pregnancy readiness plan - integrating acupuncture, nutrition, lifestyle balancing (exercise, sleep, stress management, etc.), therapeutic bodywork, and herbal medicine as needed. Our approach is always to work with the "whole person" in the context of their everyday lives.
