By combining western medical teachings with traditional chinese medicine and alternative treatments, we are able to bring balance back to your cycles, nourish your uterine lining and support a healthy conception through pregancy and beyond.

Acupuncture treatments for fertility are often used to enhance certain aspects of the menstrual cycle to acheive balance and promote a healthy uterine lining. Acupuncture treatments and timing depends on each individuals unique health picture. A diagnosis in Chinese Medicine is based on charting your menstrual cycle along with patterns of sleep, eating, temperature, tongue, pulse, emotional state, lifestyle and many other factors.

A complete fertility plan also incorporates proper nutrition, vitamins and minerals which are critical to supporting a healthy pregnancy both for you and your unborn child. In addition, it is very important to understand the safe use of herbal remedies in fertility and pregnancy and this should only be done by a trained and experienced health care practitioner.

Fertility concerns also bring with it an emotional component that must also be considered and supported throughout the process. Counseling services are offered at the clinic for those who may need it in addition to Naturopathic Medicine.
