Acupuncture for Fertility
How Do the Treatments Work?
At Acupuncture Tree of Life, we start with an in depth consult and evaluation to look at the root of what may be causing the difficulty in conceiving a healthy pregnancy and why.
We work together and you are met at where you are in your journey of conception, whether you are preparing for a natural pregnancy or you have had many failed IVF cycles and want to start with a fresh outlook. If you are using Acupuncture only for Pre and Post Embryo Transfer or taking 3 months to get your body ready for the next cycle, you are met with all the tools we can use together to optimize this process and increase your chances of pregnancy by 30-50% incorporating nutritional, herbal therapies with stress management tools alongside Acupuncture treatments.
