Acupuncture

Improve Overall Health and Fertility

At ilumina one of our main areas of specialization is fertility acupuncture for clients in Phoenix and Scottsdale who face infertility issues. Certain conditions including PCOS, endometriosis, poor ovarian reserve and advance maternal age, irregular menstrual cycles can impact fertility, among others. Many women and couples have problems that make conceiving naturally difficult. While traditional Western medicine is sometimes effective, it is often the case that combining acupuncture, Chinese medicine, massage, vitamins and supplements, nutritional changes, stress relief and other holistic therapies with traditional medicine is a far more effective approach to success. If you have been curious about IVF acupuncture and holistic therapies or a natural approach to success with intrauterine insemination, our practitioners are experts in this field.

 Our Acupuncture Specialists are Ready to Help You

IUI acupuncture and IVF acupuncture have been proven to increase success rates for those who undergo in vitro fertilization or IUI procedures, often repeatedly and with disappointing results. When your dream is to have a baby, failure with these procedures is disappointing and even heart-breaking. The expense can be prohibitive over time as well, and you want to make the most of these treatments. Fertility acupuncture essentially helps balance hormones and ovarian function while improving blood flow to the uterus and creating an environment that is more receptive to implantation. It also works to relax you and alleviate stress, another factor in fertility. We invite those in Phoenix, Scottsdale and surrounding areas to learn more about acupuncture and how it can improve fertility while making IVF or IUI procedures more successful by contacting ilumina or scheduling a consultation.
