The goal of treatment is to create functional and hormonal balance in your body allowing your body to manifest its natural fertility.

We look for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) patterns in your body that explain your fertility challenges.  We then treat those patterns with our tools: acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diet and lifestyle recommendations, and in some cases specialized massage or individual yoga instruction.  We also combine any western medicine diagnoses and your goals into a comprehensive treatment plan.

We use basal body temperature charts

and menstrual cycle signs and symptoms to show clearly if we are moving you towards a more balanced state. If we are treating men, we work with doctors who perform periodic semen analysis.

The metaphors and concepts of TCM correspond elegantly to the female menstrual cycle and phasic temperature shifts

Here are several actual basal body temperature charts for women who have gotten pregnant in our clinic:

You can see how their charts improved as they progressed through treatment. Both women became pregnant! Acupuncture has a strong regulating effect and Chinese herbs are nourishing and regulating. BBT charts show clear and predictable changes from both acupuncture and Chinese herbs. We can’t say we can prove acupuncture and herbs regulate hormones, but we can show you on your basal body temperature chart!
