Trying to Conceive
Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat fertility concerns. Now in our modern era it can serve as an excellent treatment option on its own or in conjunction with modern medical care, including fertility medications, IUI and IVF.
They understand your fertility struggles in this area as part of a larger picture of disharmony. In order to achieve your goal of conceiving a child, many areas of your health may need to be addressed in order to bring the whole picture of your health to a more balanced place.
At Fertile Ground Women’s Health and Fertility Center you will be treated as a whole person, as an individual with a unique set of concerns. Understanding your fertility journey and your entire health picture is important for developing appropriate care. Treatments are based on an assessment of the underlying imbalances or blockages in the body that are causing the reproductive system to function incorrectly.
Specific benefits of treatment include:
Regulating the menstrual cycle
Reducing the symptoms of endometriosis, fibroids and cysts
Promoting hormonal and endocrine system balance to address issues such as decreased ovarian reserves, PCOS, luteal phase defect, and thyroid disorders
Improving ovarian function and blood flow to the reproductive organs to facilitate a healthy uterine lining and optimal follicular development
Increasing the thickness of the uterine lining
Supporting the immune system to decrease immune-related fertility disorders
Reducing anxiety and stress
Improving the success rate of IVF, IUI, and other assisted reproductive technologies, as well as lessening the side effects from hormonal treatments.
Excellent care throughout pregnancy, during labor and delivery and also postpartum can have a significant positive impact not only on your short-term well-being, but also on your long-term health and future fertility.
Pregnancy is a time of constant change. Having someone to walk with you through the changes, carefully address symptoms as they arise, and offer you specialized, individualized care along the way can be enormously helpful and comforting.

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific sites on the body chosen according to the diagnostic principles of Chinese Medicine with the goal of creating greater balance and health in the body. After needles are inserted, patients rest with the needles for about 25–30 minutes and typically become deeply relaxed. Traditional Chinese medicine also includes other modalities such as herbal and dietary therapy, cupping, moxibustion and qi gong.
Their bodywork therapists use techniques including Maya Abdominal Therapy, Cranial Sacral therapy, Pain Neutralization Technique, Shiatsu, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), moxa, and cupping.
Therapeutic bodywork promotes proper anatomical position, health and functioning of the digestive and reproductive organs and helps to release physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen. This can be used to treat a variety of issues such as: infertility, PMS, endometriosis, painful or irregular periods and fibroids to name a few.
