Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy are ancient Chinese methods used for the treatment and prevention of disease. These systems are as ancient and effective as any other medicinal technique used today. They have been practiced consistently for the past five thousand years in the Orient. 1.4 billon of the world’s population uses acupuncture and herbs as their main form of health care.

Although acupuncture has been used in England, France, and Germany for several hundred years, only in the past two decades have Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) been recognized in the United States.

The benefits of Acupuncture and TCM treatment for the infertile couple can be found in early Chinese medical literature dating back to 11 AD. Not only do these techniques assist in regulating the menstrual cycle and invigorating the sperm, but they also serve to enhance the function of the whole body. This “whole body” health approach, in turn, provides the key to unlocking unlimited potential in healing. This is especially appropriate for a couple trying to conceive as it stimulates overall health to boost reproductive health and a reduction of biological age.
