Fertility Enhancement Using Acupuncture
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, it is often said that there is no such thing as “infertility.” That is because TCM is founded on a theory of balance. One’s inability to conceive is considered an imbalance that needs to be rectified, not a matter-of-fact condition of infertility.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have recently garnered national attention for effective fertility treatments. Current studies demonstrate that acupuncture modulates hormone levels, increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, as well as enhances uterine conditions, which favor the implantation of a fertilized egg. Chinese medicine is also proven to increase the success rate of IVF and IUI by 40-60%.
At Marin Acupuncture Clinic, our lead practitioner, Lindsey Koelman, provides quality and personalized care to support your family in actualizing your deepest desire—a healthy pregnancy and child. We understand the emotional, spiritual, and physical stressors of fertility struggles. Lindsey has 15 years of specialized training in Chinese medical fertility enhancement and has studied under three of the top TCM fertility experts in the country (Dr. Randine Lewis, Dr. Saraswati Robin Marcus and Dr. Hua Ling Xu). Lindsey is currently mentored by Dr. Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure and the leading fertility TCM doctor in the West.
Lindsey is passionate about giving children to have a healthy start in life, and according to Chinese Medical theory a child’s health is directly affected by how strong and vital the parents are at the time of conception. Even if you are not struggling with fertility, Lindsey can help you prepare your body and spirit for conception. Your child deserves the best possible start to life!
