Can I get an appointment with a couple days notice?
Yes, we will make every effort to fit you into our schedule even on short notice.
You may wish to contact us in advance when you have an approximate idea of when your transfer will be.
As soon as you know the exact day and time of your transfer, send us an email or a whatsapp and we will schedule your acupuncture treatments.
Why does Acupuncture help during a FIV?
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to enhance fertility.
By improving the flow of energy and blood in the body and by bringing the body into its optimum state of relaxation and equilibrium, it helps to create more ideal conditions for a pregnancy to take place.
Moreover, undergoing in vitro fertilization and other Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatments can be stressful, and it is important to find ways to care for yourself and to maintain your physical and emotional wellbeing.
Acupuncture can help you to reduce stress and to relax, and it can help to increase your chances of a successful outcome.
When should I receive treatments for an IVF?
If it is possible, begin to receive weekly treatments up to three months before your embryo transfer to help prepare you.
At this stage, the goals of treatment are to:
- Improve the functioning of the ovaries (if you are using your own eggs)
- Increase blood flow to the uterus and the thickness of the uterine lining
- Reduce the side effects of medication
- Improve the sperm quality and quantity
- Decrease the chances of miscarriage
- Strengthen your overall health and help you to relax and reduce stress
On the day of your embryo transfer:
Even if you have never received an acupuncture treatment previously, receiving acupuncture on the day of your transfer, both right before and right after the transfer may help to:
- Improve circulation of energy and blood to the uterus
- Relax the muscles and relax the uterus to prevent contractions
- Increase your ability to remain calm and relaxed during your transfer
After a positive result:
Receiving acupuncture treatment in the first trimester of your pregnancy may help to soothe anxiety, reduce the chances of miscarriage, and to relieve the nausea (“morning sickness”) that sometimes occurs at this stage.
After a failed cycle or a miscarriage:
Acupuncture at this stage can help you to recover physically and to regain your emotional equilibrium so that you will be well prepared to begin another cycle.
Is the first fertility treatment really free if I am not satisfied ?
Yes, it is, for fertility treatment only (excluded Egg Transfer day).
We are convinced that you will see the incredible benefit of our treatments for your fertility.
Some improvements are immediate!
However, some necesary fertility adjustments need more time and sessions. And we are certain you will want to continue improve your gynecological health after our first treatment.
If for whatever reason you don't want to continue after our first encounter, the cost will be on us.
Patients ask us if we are not scared of people abusing that risk-free guarantee.
We believe in people's honesty, and also in their self interest: nobody wants to destroy a health and life changing relationship.
Because they find our treatments priceless, nobody want to jeopardize a life long of relief for saving a little money now.
