Traditional Chinese Medicine

Unlike Western medicine which is based on observable cause and effect, Traditional Chinese medicine understands illness and infertility as being caused by an imbalance in the body’s energy (known as “Qi”).

Using diagnostic tools from both Western medicine and Traditional Chinese medicine, I will diagnose and treat this imbalance of energy in your mind and your body to improve your chances of conception.  I will focus on what might be happening with you metabolically and hormonally so I can get you in the best shape for fertility and pregnancy.

A 2008 study published in the British Medical Journal concluded that “preliminary evidence suggests that acupuncture given with embryo transfer improves rates of pregnancy and live birth among women undergoing in vitro fertilisation [IVF].”
