Acupuncture for 3 months or more can truly make a difference in the quality of eggs that are maturing – an important factor for Fertility. How? Increasing the amount of oxygen-rich blood flowing to the ovaries provides an abundance of building blocks necessary to create high-quality eggs and support pregnancy.
Couples are surprised when they find out that male fertility factors account for almost half of conception issues… yes, half! Acupuncture benefits hormone levels and increase testicular blood flow to increase sperm count, improve growth and movement of the sperm – all of which help with infertility.
We support couples no matter where their journey takes them. For those using IVF, research shows acupuncture’s secret power also lies in its ability to slow down uterine contractions pre and post embryo transfer to increase the chances of a successful implantation and pregnancy.
From PCOS to thyroid disorders, research shows acupuncture helps restart the menstrual cycle by balancing hormones, a key factor in reproduction and fertility. Acupuncture also builds blood by strengthening digestion to increase nutrient absorption from food and supplements. With the proper amount of blood we can increase circulation to get your cycle back on track.
Acupuncture’s ability to improve blood flow to the uterus brings increased nourishment that can create a thicker and more receptive lining. Our goal with our clients is to create a lining thickness of at least 8mm that has 3 distinct layers. This is the best possible environment for embryo implantation and ensuring enough nourishment to support a pregnancy full term.
Little known fact… cervical mucus is an important factor when it comes to fertility! It changes as ovulation approaches, becoming a clear stretchy egg white consistency. Estrogen stimulates this change. Thankfully acupuncture balances hormones! It’s that change that creates a friendly environment for sperm and helps them swim into the fallopian tubes to meet the egg. When you see it, it’s date night!
During stress our body reduces energy to functions that aren’t necessary for immediate survival, like our reproductive system. The beautiful thing is research shows acupuncture blocks stress-induced reactions and click us into our parasympathetic nervous system where we rest, heal & make babies!
Research shows acupuncture and herbal medicine are natural treatments to block the effects of chronic stress on our hormones, making a positive impact on AMH, FSH and LH levels. Balanced hormones create the healthier eggs and the optimal conditions for pregnancy.

Vikki and her team are incredible! Every visit was customized to what we were working on that week and I felt cared for and relaxed. I truly believe acupuncture is what helped us become pregnant after many failed fertility treatments! I tell everyone to give it a chance, you have nothing to lose!
I was able to conceive with the assistance of acupuncture after struggling with infertility for almost a year. They were very accommodating with my schedule and I had an extremely relaxing session that changed my life. Thank you for everything.
I had attempted IVF six times before seeing Vikki. On my 7th attempt I used her and got pregnant with our miracle girl! Vikki is so great at calming my nerves as I’m also a very anxious person. I’m currently seeing her again for anxiety and IVF again. I always leave feeling so much better than when I entered. I can’t thank her enough for what she has done for me.
