What is Acupuncture? Developed over 3000 years ago, acupuncture is the insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points on the body. The needles work by stimulating, building, and unblocking energy and by helping the body return to a balanced and healthy state. Once the body is balanced, it heals itself.
Fertility Treatments: Oriental Medicine has been used for centuries to support fertility. It is safe, effective, and non-invasive and can be used on its own and has been shown in clinical trials to increase the efficacy of IVF treatments.
My practice offers a unique combination of acupuncture, Maya Abdominal Therapy, food therapy, and Chinese herbs to help increase your chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy. Acupuncture supports and regulates the hormones, increases circulation to the ovaries and uterus, supports digestion, and treats stress. Whether you are hoping to achieve pregnancy naturally or using Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), I can help you achieve your dream of have a healthy baby.
What is Chinese Herbal Medicine? The Chinese have categorized over 5000 substances according to their medicinal actions.
