Trusted care for women’s health and fertility

Women clearly have unique health needs—from fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum support, to gynecological conditions and hormonal changes, our bodies are constantly shifting. Whether you are trying to get pregnant or you’re looking for effective ways to balance your hormones, improve your health and prevent disease, our experienced, compassionate and caring providers are here to help. We work with women of all ages, across a wide variety of conditions and concerns.

Most importantly, we know that you lead busy, active lives and often end up at the bottom of your own to-do lists. We are committed to supporting women in all aspects of their physical, mental and emotional health. Our treatments are grounded in the latest medical research to deliver measurable results. We work with you to develop a personalized, concrete care plan that can integrate with other providers or stand alone as a safe, primary solution.

How acupuncture can help

Chinese medicine relates conception to the process of lighting a flame. In this analogy, the body is a vessel that must be sparked to create new life. If there’s not enough oil in the vessel (in the form of nutrition, rest, immune strength, balanced hormones, and more), the flame won’t light. Even the “matches” of conventional medicine (such as fertility drugs and IVF) won’t be able to spark.

We are proud of our strong track record in treating infertility, including high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve, autoimmune and unexplained infertility, and conditions such as recurrent miscarriage, endometriosis, PCOS, irregular periods, lack of period, and menopausal symptoms. We also offer continuing care during and after pregnancy, including treatments for nausea, bleeding, swelling, pain, postpartum depression and more.

Who we help

Women of all ages and life stages, couples who want to conceive naturally, couples who are using assisted reproductive technology (ART), and same-sex female couples who are preparing for intrauterine insemination (IUI). We use evidence-based treatment strategies that incorporate both modern and traditional medicine.

Your first visit will include a confidential discussion of your personal health journey, including your reproductive goals and medical history, and any previous diagnoses, interventions or concerns. Your provider will conduct a thorough physical exam that blends both traditional and integrative approaches. Together, you’ll develop a collaborative care plan that may include a combination of acupuncture, nutritional changes, exercise, herbal medicine, supplements, sleep targets, and other treatments or lifestyle approaches.
