Many women seek help from fertility acupuncture with their initial conception. Fertility acupuncture helps balance hormones and improves blood flow to the reproductive organs. It also helps to reduce stress. Many women are able to conceive within 3-4 months of just using acupuncture, dietary therapy and/or Chinese herbs.
Fertility Acupuncture Supports
- IVF/IUI support
- Stress and Infertility
- High FSH/Low Ovarian Reserve
- Thin Endometrial Lining
- Low Hormones
For other women, getting assistance when using traditional medical fertility treatments such as Clomid, IUI, and IVF is combined with regular fertility acupuncture sessions. It can be beneficial to start an acupuncture regimen 3 months prior to receiving Assisted Reproduction Techniques.
Mari has gone above and beyond what I ever imagined a practitioner would do in my fertility journey. She is experienced, compassionate, perceptive, and committed to providing outstanding care for her clients. Thanks to her guidance and treatment, my husband and I are expecting our first baby next year and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
A recent study from Tel Aviv University reports, “When combining IUI with TCM treatments, 65.5% of the test group were able to conceive, compared with 39.4% of the control group, who received no herbal or acupuncture therapy”. There are numerous other studies* showing significantly higher success rates when fertility acupuncture is used in conjunction with Assisted Reproduction Techniques.
