Acupuncture IVF/IUI Transfer: .75-1 hr $120-$150

When IVF and IUI are combined with acupuncture, research suggests that success rates increase by %65. (Manheimer et al, British Medical Journal, 2008) Acupuncture on the day of transfer helps;

-improve uterine blood flow creating a more hospitable environment for implantation. 

-relax the uterus and reduce contractions to help with implantation.

-minimize symptoms associated with assisted reproductive technology (ART) and medications such as Clomid.

-reduce stress within the body

The treatment plan is created around evidence-based protocols done on the day of embryo transfer to help balance the body and increase your chance at success. Acupuncture should be done either right before the transfer or right after the transfer for best results.

Acupuncture Labor Induction: .75-1 hr $120-$150

Acupuncture is a safe, effective method that can be used to help prepare the body for labour. Needling specific points helps to encourage the body to naturally release prostaglandins (to soften and ripen the cervix) and oxytocin (to trigger contractions) to help induce labour. Acupuncture can also help to harmonize the mind and body as well as relax muscles and tendons to make the birthing process quicker and less painful. The specific timeframe for outcome can be different for every person but it will typically take one to three treatments done every second day.
