IVF and IUI: Acupuncture, Complementary Fertility Therapy
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used to help prepare for, and enhance, conception in ART cycles for IVF, IUI and other ART protocols. Fertility acupuncture has been shown to improve fertility rates when used as a complementary therapy for IVF preparation and to support IVF treatment protocols.
We work closely with you and your Reproductive Endocrinologist to develop an individualized infertility treatment plan to help enhance your IVF treatment and improve your chances for conception.
Ancient treatments for our modern times
At Green Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, we combine evidence-based research protocols, fertility acupuncture and the accumulated knowledge of nearly 3000 years of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We bring the best of both worlds to help our patients fulfill their dream of starting a family.
We believe the goal is not just getting pregnant, but promoting a balanced and healthy gestational period. Many of our pregnant moms-to-be continue to receive regular therapy throughout the first trimester of pregnancy. They often will return for treatment of Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel or other complaints during the second and third trimester. We treat the inevitable pains of pregnancy effectively without any risk to the growing fetus unlike drug therapy.
We utilize each of the following with our patients:
- Chinese Herbal Medicine
- Lifestyle and Dietary Counseling
- Homeopathic Remedies and Formulas
Multiple studies demonstrate that Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine protocols can improve fertility rates by enhancing physiological processes related to fertility.
