There’s no cutting corners when it comes to creating new life, so when we work with you, we like to start with a healthy reproductive system. This will increase your chances of conceiving and give your child and grandchild the best possible starting point by being healthy. We begin by going all the way back to where everything starts – with a healthy reproductive system. Strong, healthy eggs and sperm greatly improve your chances for conception. Your body begins to recruit your eggs about 120 days before they are released, and sperm is regenerated every 90 days. Therefore, whenever possible we’ll get started at least 3 months before you try to have a baby. Whether it is naturally or through medications and IVF, our goal is to balance and prepare your body with acupuncture treatments, Chinese medicinal herbs, proper nutrition and stress reduction. Our Aim for Fertility Program will nourish your body to reach its maximum conception potential by improving your overall health and reproductive system. Our program will also help you balance your hormones by correcting the menstrual cycle so your body responds by increasing healthy blood flow to your ovary and uterus.
Ovulation Disorders are the most common reasons women struggle to become pregnant. When it comes down to it, no two cases are exactly alike, that’s why we work with you to create a personalized plan of treatment that fits your unique body and life.
Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition, supplements, lifestyle, mindfulness, and stress management are all tools that can support healthy ovulation, and will assist your body should you need or choose to use fertility drugs.
We have helped thousands of women regulate their menstrual cycles. It takes an average of three months to get a healthy ovulation and menstrual cycle, even if you have not had a cycle for months. When it comes to ovulation disorders there are many different treatments for:
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)
- Premature Menopause
- Post-pill Amenorrhea
Many women are shocked they suffer from this silent condition which can limit chances of getting pregnant. If you have been diagnosed with a high FSH, premature ovarian failure, poor ovarian reserve, advanced maternal age or had a canceled IVF or IUI cycle due to poor response, there is hope! With the help of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, many women have been able to conceive and deliver a healthy baby with our programs that manage this condition.
What is FSH?
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is produced by the pituitary gland. This reproductive hormone communicates with the ovaries to produce follicular growth so a healthy egg can be released and there is potential of conception. Learn More
What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal disorder that affects the hormones, the ovaries, and the eggs which are developing within the follicle. Learn More
What is Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)?
Premature Ovarian Failure is the loss of ovarian function and estrogen production in women under the age of 40. Learn More
Advanced Maternal Age
If you are starting your journey a little later in life, over 34, we can help improve your chances of conception and a healthy pregnancy through a personalized program utilizing a healthy diet, positive lifestyle changes, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine.
The natural effects of aging are unavoidable. Ovaries age and fade into atrophy more rapidly than the rest of the body and their hormone response diminishes. It takes more than three menstrual cycles (approx: 100-120 days) from the time of follicular growth to the release of the egg or ‘ovulation’. This is the perfect time to nourish your body and ovaries and get as healthy as possible to offset these findings.
Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, supplements and life style adjustments have been proven to improve the function of the ovaries, balance hormones, and nourish the reproductive system so you can have a baby.
“Thank you for such thoughtful care during my IVF transfer and 1st trimester. It was a perfect environment, nurturing and calming, exactly what I was hoping for…I won’t hesitate to return if I need help as the pregnancy progresses.”

Acupuncture for IVF Treatment
If your IVF treatment is scheduled within the next couple of months or you have financial considerations, there is still much we can do to support your conception success. Acupuncture treatment 4-8 weeks prior to your egg retrieval is the next best strategy to improve your chances of a successful IVF. Especially if you need help preparing the environment. Our primary focus will be preparing a healthy uterus. To achieve this, we prescribe various treatments such as: acupuncture, fertility nutrition, mindfulness and if appropriate, a specific supplement regimen. Our expert results help you:
