Your Treatment Path

1) Your first appointment

We encourage you to bring your partner, if you have one, to your first appointment.

This is your chance to tell us everything about your fertility situation and to feel really heard. Our unique approach starts with an in-depth evaluation to uncover any underlying factors that may be preventing you from conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy.

At your first appointment, we will:

  • Listen deeply to your needs and expectations.
  • Explain how acubalance may help.
  • Give you some tools and resources to get you started.

2) Reviewing Your Plan

After your first appointment, your practitioner will review your collected information and create your individualized treatment plan that will be reviewed at your follow-up visit (which can include an acupuncture session). In some cases your practitioner may suggest further testing to identify any hidden imbalances or deficiencies causing your fertility issues. The purpose of your plan is to balance your immune and hormone system and create the optimal internal environment to get you in the fertility zone, whether you are trying to conceive naturally or with IVF.

Your personalized treatment plan may include:

  • Fertility acupuncture
  • Chinese herbs
  • A fertility diet plan (that will promote weight loss or gain if needed) 
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Emotional support and techniques to manage stress
  • Resources and referrals to assist you on your fertility journey

3) Ongoing Support

We will provide you with ongoing support every step of the way. In addition to acupuncture, your practitioner will check your progress, adjust your treatment, and discuss any worries or concerns you may have. We also provide you with ongoing lifestyle and diet coaching to help you manage stress and keep on track.

Within a few weeks, you should notice significant changes in your menstrual cycles, sleep, weight, and overall sense of well-being. These are signs that your reproductive hormones are getting back in balance and your body is becoming optimized for conception.
