Fertility Enhancement for Women & Men
The greatest healing comes from going inward and listening to what you body really needs on all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual. A combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and meditation can have a profound effect on all these levels.

All too often we find that the source of infertility problems is rooted in a cultural prioritizing of 'more is better' and the subtle messages that we receive to 'achieve, do, and go'. We are put in a constant state of stress, disrupting our body's ability to stay in balance. This is worsened by years of poor nutrition and eating on the go.
When we are stressed and poorly nourished our bodies may be unwilling to support another life. We are in overdrive just trying to keep ourselves going. When we slow down and listen to our body we begin to hear what our body and spirit truly needs for healing.

Acupuncture and Asian Medicine is a system that can work alone or in combination with any of the allopathic infertility approaches. Whether you are trying to conceive on your own or with the assistance of modern technology, such as In-vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intra-uterine Insemination (IUI), or with ovulatory-stimulating medications, acupuncture has been proven to increase your chances of conception and fertility.
