Creating New Life
I believe stress is the main cause of fertility problems in the modern age. Stress wreaks havoc on our hormones, brain and nervous system. Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, detoxing, and lifestyle modifications can bring the body back into balance so she can conceive naturally. I recommend 6 months to 1 year. If you have already been trying for some time and will be pursuing ART, using Traditional Chinese Medicine in conjunction with ART improves pregnancy rates up to 42%.
Acupuncture helps many women get pregnant with or without the additional use of conventional methods such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). I assist in IUI, IVF and embryo transfer in conjunction with acupuncture with great success.
Many women use Clomid to help promote ovulation during IUI. However, Clomid often causes the uterine lining to become thin, which is detrimental to becoming pregnant. Acupuncture can help the uterine lining to thicken and become more uniform. This is a result of increased blood flow to the uterine arteries which then aids in the ability to get pregnant.
Treatments will consist of an in-depth history and intake of your conception journey and before.
I will make diet suggestions, recommend an exercise program, and stress reduction meditations and techniques. I will also give you a custom herbal formula at the conclusion of your session.

What My Clients Say
Third IUI Success
"At 38 years of age, I was suffering from back pain and infertility. After 2 IUIs, I was a bit discouraged, heading into my third IUI. I decided to do something different, and so sought out acupuncture to increase my odds of success. I found Heather! She has a calming presence, and a healing touch. I felt immediately at ease."
Baby Number Two
"I am forever grateful to Heather for helping us conceive our second baby boy. Our first boy was not easily conceived either. After several failed attempts of fertility treatments, we decided to try acupuncture. When we moved to Marin I stopped seeing my acupuncturist in Berkeley and found the wonderful Heather in Fairfax."
"I have worked with other acupuncturists, but none as talented, intuitive, mindful, or present as Heather. I sought out Heather as I was getting ready to try to conceive and I wanted my body to be as strong and as ready as possible. Upon asking a series of questions, Heather began to work her magic and treated the whole of me, mind, body and spirit."
