Fertility concerns have become a major concern for many women and couples. Acupuncture is widely accepted by the western medical community in aiding in conception. Many IVF centers now encourage patients to receive acupuncture treatments to increase their chances at a healthy pregnancy. Clinically, we have seen acupuncture help with pregnancy after rounds of IVF have failed. Acupuncture is a great place to start if you would prefer to try a less invasive approach or can be used in combination with western fertility treatments. Seeing both partners increases success, as Asian Medicine also affects male fertility factors.
Menstruation should occur regularly without pain or other complications. If you suffer from amenorrhea (lack of periods), dysmenorrhea (painful periods), irregular periods, PMS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, we can help regulate your cycle and allow you to get on with your life. The Transitions Acupuncture Program may begin with bi-weekly to weekly visits, based on your state of health. Most patients can expect to see marked results within 5-10 visits.

What to Expect
First and foremost, Acupuncture is considered a medical treatment. The practitioner will meet with you and gather information about your case. Treatment will be based on the discussion and answers that are provided in the first session. Your practitioner will create a treatment plan to address your needs and make recommendations so you can effectively reach your health goals.
The needles used for acupuncture are hair thin. Most people don't feel anything more than a slight pressure. The FDA sets the guidelines for the instruments and each needle is sterile, individually packed, and used only once. Many people rest deeply during their treatments and leave feeling peaceful and centered.
