Acupuncture for Fertility

Peak fertility occurs with peak vitality.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to enhancing fertility is to strengthen the entire system, with special focus on the reproductive system, so that the patient's body and overall health are at their peak. This increases the chances of achieving and sustaining a healthy pregnancy. Historically, this is likened to tilling the soil before planting the seed.

Lara Rosenthal, L.Ac., Belinda Anderson, Ph.D., L.Ac., and Sara Frohlich, L.Ac. offer a program of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, lifestyle and nutritional guidance individually designed to maximize reproductive and general health.

Acupuncture can safely be used prior to and concurrently with fertility medications and procedures such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

Studies have shown that acupuncture:

  • Calms the nervous system
  • Improves blood flow through the pelvic region
  • May improve pregnancy rates when used in conjunction with IVF
