​Acupuncture at the Center for Fertility and Reproductive Endocrinology

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting very thin needles into precise points on the body to promote healing and improve functioning. It is an ancient healthcare system with thousands of years of empirical success. Modern research has proven positive results in fertility and pregnancy, pain and headaches, allergies and immunity. In every stage of life acupuncture can help you reach your health goals from prevention to recovery.

How can this help me as a patient?

Our modern stressful life effects more than our sleep and eating habits. Acupuncture can help bring balance to our system for natural healing.

How does it work?

The initial consult is different than a classical doctor visit. The body, mind, and emotions are evaluated for their functional levels and how they relate to one another. While, lifestyle and environmental factors are also considered. The problem is narrowed down providing a focused based approached to your care.

Initial visits are an hour with return visits ranging from a half to a full hour. Treatments are also available pre and post procedures in our fertility clinic.
