Chinese Medicine and acupuncture are an incredibly effective modality for balancing your body systems and enhancing your overall fertility. We provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan including acupuncture, herbs, lifestyle change and nutritional assessment. We work with women of all ages in many different stages of fertility and conception, including women who are at the beginning of their fertility journey and want to optimize chances of conception and a healthy pregnancy to women who have had fertility challenges and need a higher level of intervention and support. We also work with women who are using assisted reproductive technology (ART) including IUI and IVF. Many women will also seek care for their partner in this journey as it can make a significant difference in the outcome.
Support with Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can provide relief from many pregnancy-related issues including nausea/vomiting, fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, shoulder, back and hip pain, headaches, heartburn, swelling, breech presentation, delayed labor and more.
Massage during pregnancy is therapeutic bodywork which focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of the childbirth experience. Massage therapy enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. Some studies have shown that prenatal massage can actually reduce the stress hormones released in the body.
