Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are becoming famous in the world of helping couples who face fertility challenges. Jenn Collins and Jenny Riegg are experts in this aspect of Chinese Medicine and truly love working with couples who are trying to create a family.
We have spent hundreds of hours in advanced training on the treatment of disorders such as: PCOS, Unexplained Infertility, Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, Hormonal Imbalance, poor sperm count and quality, Endometriosis, and poor quality egg and endometrial lining . These disorders are often so complex and there can be many levels to their treatment. Chinese medicine truly shines in this area, and often offers a unique perspective of care that can work on its own, or in concordance with western reproductive medicine.
At Holistic Health Acupuncture, couples can expect a long history and intake with us on the initial visit to uncover all the underlying aspects of the fertility picture. We may recommend blood tests, or we might want to look at basal Body temperatures and discuss length and description of the menstrual cycle. Couples should expect to come regularly for 4 months of treatment and possibly more depending upon the complexity of the diagnosis. Chinese Herbs are often prescribed unless the couple is undergoing IVF. Once a woman becomes pregnant it is up to her if she chooses to continue treatment, but many women love to keep coming for the deep relaxation and comfort that they get from the treatments.
It is one of our biggest joys when we get those emails or calls that a patient has gotten a positive pregnancy test. It just warms up our hearts and there are often tears of joy exchanged here at the clinic on these occasions.
We offer free consultations for those who are interested in learning more about our fertility acupuncture program. For a short video presentation, view How Acupuncture Helps Fertility.
