We place importance on viewing the entire woman, man, or couple. We strive to understand your physical and emotional state, as well as your personalized situation, when creating our treatment plan.
Therapies for Optimal Fertility
Our holistic therapies encompass a broad spectrum that will restore harmony in your body, and promote self-healing. We offer acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, yoga, Asian bodywork, and cupping, as well as advice on nutrition and optimal conception, and also are knowledgeable about Western medicine. These methods are combined into a customized treatment plan for you, individually or as a couple.
Natural Herbs to Promote Pregnancy
To support your desire for a baby we use high-quality herbs from the Chinese Medicine compendium. We have many specialized recipes. Sometimes we prescribe according to phases of the menstrual cycle, or take into account the type of UVF protocol you’re on. We also have recipes for optimal conception, and later, support of the pregnancy.
A Relaxing, Safe Atmosphere

More: For Women…
Infertility is often a just a label. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, a healthy woman should be capable of conception once her menses have arrived until she reaches menopause, unless the ovarian tubes are blocked, or there are other anatomical abnormalities. That’s why we start with an understanding of your overall health. Gathering information about a woman’s cycle gives us lots of useful information. The length of the cycle, the quality of the bleeding, and any discomfort or pain, are assessed for indications of disharmony. Each month, we’ll have the opportunity to ease menstrual symptoms, as you prepare your body for pregnancy. Many patients already notice changes after the first treatment. In most cases though, the therapy is a step-by-step process. We ask patients to expect at least three months of therapy.
As pregnancy depends on a variety of complex factors, we feel that interdisciplinary collaboration between TCM and Western medicine provides the best results. Our treatments are designed to complement the protocols that you’ll receive from your doctors, gynecologists, and midwives.
The following conditions respond well to TCM:
• Polycystic Ovaries (PCOS)
• Disorders of Follicular Maturation
• Progesterone Deficiency
• High FSH Levels
• Amenorrhea or Anovulatory Cycles (no ovulation)
• Painful Menstruation
• Irregular Cycles
• Uterine Scarring
• Infertility Complicated by Immunological Conditions
• Pregnancy After Age 35
• Infertility of Unknown Cause
• Repeated Miscarriages

TCM can support a man’s overall health and virility, and in some cases, increase sperm counts, and optimize fertility. We have treated men with fertility challenges for years, both on an individual basis, and as part of a couple.
