How to find a good acupuncturist to help you with infertility?
Not all acupuncturists are the same. If they treat mostly pain or practice 5-element style acupuncture, they may know very little about infertility. In China, infertility treatment is a separate specialty in the acupuncture practice.The acupuncturists on our team have a wide variety of experience. We are all currently certified by the NCCAOM. We have acupuncturists that have combined experiences in native Chinese and have been fully trained in China, OMD ( Oriental Medicine Doctor ), FABORM, intense one-on-one training with Dr. Lewis, Masters Degree of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the U.S. and some have even been trained in China in the specialty of infertility. We offer two locations and have weekend and after hour appointments for your convenience. We use herb nutrition, and acupuncture in order to help you help yourself. Whether your considering IVF, IUI, or a strictly natural approach we want to offer you a free initial office visit with a practitioner for two hours to go though the health history, evaluation diagnosis (Chinese) and treatment to see if you are comfortable with our group and Chinese
medicine. We want your fertility journey to be one of the most relaxing experiences of your life, not stressful.
A few questions you can ask an acupuncturist:
If you get mostly yes answers, you have a good basis. In addition to these fundamentals, your practitioner should be convenient to your home or work so that you can see them easily. You should also consider working with a team of acupuncturists because once you start your journey to fertility is important that you can get treatments when you need them regardless of weekendís holidays or vacations.
