Fertility & Reproductive Health

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to promote women’s health during reproductive years and helping with the transition through perimenopause and menopause. We can support women in enhancing fertility. If you choose to use assisted reproduction techniques (ART) such as IVF, FET, or IUI, acupuncture we can tailor the acupuncture treatment to help with each stage of your medical treatment, often significantly improving results and reducing side effects of medications. Once you are pregnant, you can continue receiving acupuncture treatments to reduce common pregnancy symptoms such as nausea, back pain and trouble sleeping. Acupuncture helps with many reproductive conditions including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, infertility, recurrent miscarriage, painful periods, irregular menstrual cycles, pregnancy and the postpartum period. Dorothy S. Wells, AP, FABORM, specializes in acupuncture for female reproductive issues, and is a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine.
