Reading this recent article renewed my commitment to patients who see me for fertility and hormonal balancing. These days many couples are waiting until they are older to try to have children. They often experience difficultly in conceiving or early-term or recurrent miscarriages. Blossom Acupuncture offers a holistic approach to fertility enhancement through acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional and lifestyle recommendations. I work with couples who are using ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) as well as those who choose to use Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine alone.
Acupuncture for fertility is usually done weekly, and treatments focus on increasing blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, balancing hormones, regulating the menstrual cycle, and decreasing stress. I prescribe herbal formulas to balance a patient's constitutional pattern, custom-tailored to increase fertility. Nutritional recommendations help 'clean up' your diet, and I offer lifestyle recommendations as needed.
