At Fertile Ground Acupuncture we are your fertility acupuncturist experts, integrating eastern and western approaches to help you start your family. Our staff has completed advanced training that has prepared them to work alongside your western reproductive specialists.
Each of our fertility acupuncturists is Board Certified in Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) with more than 10 years of clinical experience. If you and your partner are attempting an Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) or In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), we can provide complementary acupuncture treatment to give you the best chances of success. Many couples trying for a natural cycle of conception can also benefit from fertility acupuncture treatment.
Chinese Medicine looks at the body as a whole. We try to address any imbalances through changes in diet and exercise as well as treatments. Acupuncture for infertility, Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage, herbal and nutritional supplements, essential oils and nutrition are all tools we can choose from to best help you. Your treatment plan may also include specific qi gong exercises or fertility yoga poses for you to do at home.
Our goal is to help you find your balance, which will naturally boost your fertility. If there are specific fertility complications that need to be addressed, like PCOS, endometriosis or low sperm count, we tailor your treatments to those conditions.

The Benefits of Using a Fertility Acupuncturist
A Fertility Acupuncturist can choose specific acupuncture points that help support your fertility by:
- Increasing blood flow to the uterus.
- Regulating the release of gonadatropin releasing hormone and neurotransmitters to influence menstrual cycles, ovulation and fertility.
- Raising the level of seratonin.
- Stimulating the release of endogenous opiods, to lower the biological stress response.
- Lowering the stress hormone cortisol
- Reducing prolactin levels
Acupuncture for Infertility treatments increase blood flow to your reproductive organs. This can help improve sperm and egg quality, as well as building up the lining of the uterus to assist the implantation of the fertilized egg. Acupuncture is also very calming – so important for women suffering through hormonal swings from the fertility medications. Stress relief for both partners going through fertility treatment is very beneficial. Several studies have shown that women under stress do not ovulate regularly.
