Our Specialist Will Create an Acupuncture Plan Tailored for You
You don’t have to be perfect to get pregnant.
Consulting Dr. Google will yield a thousand things a woman or couple can or “should” do to get pregnant. All the interwoven details of anatomy and dynamic physiology around conception are intricate and powerful. It is easy to get overwhelmed when we look at each detail separate from the big picture. The sophistication of Chinese medicine comes from standing back to look at the whole picture to understand where the body needs the most support.
After a thorough evaluation based on western and eastern principles, our board-certified reproductive acupuncturist will deliver a plan tailored to your body and your history. Your treatment plan will include acupuncture, herbal therapy and lifestyle recommendations. Patients needing more comprehensive care will also receive nutritional counseling, lab and stool testing, and detox protocols.
The impact of three months
Chinese medicine has long considered three months to be the minimum amount of time needed to regulate the menstrual cycle. Our packages reflect that the ideal treatment plan begins with a three-month period of time in which we can track many changes in the menstrual cycle from pain levels, to the length of the cycle, to spotting and blood flow. We will use tools such as your basal body temperature (BBT) and ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) to help guide us along the way.
Women and couples seeking fertility support come to our practice at different points during their journey. Some come before consulting a gynecologist. Others come after consulting their gynecologist, but before visiting a specialist such as a reproductive endocrinologist at an IVF clinic. With over 15 years specializing in reproductive health and collaborating with western specialists, our acupuncturist knows when to build a treatment plan with Chinese medicine alone, and when to refer to other providers.
