Assisted Reproductive Technology (IUI & IVF)

Empowering you through acupuncture.

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatments, combined with acupuncture and/or herbal medicine, boost your chances for IVF success! Research has shown acupuncture can increase the efficacy of IVF procedures up to 45%.

Our team will work alongside your reproductive endocrinologist, supporting their efforts and protocol every step of the way.

How acupuncture complements ART

It is recommended that patients receive a minimum of nine weeks of consistent acupuncture treatment while following our comprehensive lifestyle recommendations.

During this time, we focus on regulating imbalances that may be occurring elsewhere in the body, which is a different approach than Western medicine. Any imbalance, whether digestive, menstrual, emotional or dietary, needs to be restored to maximize a person’s fertile potential.

Preparation: A full series of Traditional Chinese Medical treatments in advance of ART procedures works to improve your overall health and regulate your nervous, endocrine and reproductive systems, allowing optimal possibilities for conception. Acupuncture treatments contribute to a smoother ART procedure if given prior to embryo retrieval.

During fertility medication protocol: Acupuncture reduces medication side effects, which can vary from mood swings to indigestion. It also increases blood flow to your uterus, thickening the endometrial lining and preparing it for implantation.

Embryo transfer: We will provide acupuncture before and after your transfer, which will increase your chances of achieving pregnancy by reducing stress, relaxing the uterus and reducing cramping.
