What is Fertility Acupuncture?

You fertility journey towards starting a family often brings a mix of anticipation and challenges. At Family Wellness Acupuncture, we specialize in fertility acupuncture, a method specifically designed to support and enhance reproductive health, paving the way for your journey to conception.

Fertility acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body to regulate hormonal balance, a key factor in fertility. This practice also focuses on improving blood flow to reproductive organs, which is essential for healthy ovarian and uterine function. Additionally, it helps in managing stress, known to affect fertility, by promoting relaxation and emotional well-being.

The effectiveness of fertility acupuncture lies in its ability to address both physical and emotional aspects of fertility. It’s not just about treating symptoms but enhancing the body’s natural fertility potential. This holistic approach makes it an invaluable part of a comprehensive fertility plan, offering a natural pathway to improve your chances of conception.

Family Wellness Acupuncture, we take great care in helping you start your beautiful family and we will be with you every step of the way while you are working on achieving your dreams.

Fertility Acupuncture Treatment Program

Making the decision to start a family is one of the most important decisions you can make and it doesn’t come easily for everyone. That’s why we’re here to help. 

Did you know that the average cost of IVF in the United States is $60,000 and up to as much as $100,000?* Not everyone who needs help can afford IVF or other very expensive forms of treatment. Adoption also costs an average of $35,000**

That’s one of the ways fertility acupuncture comes into play. The average cost of fertility acupuncture is $8,000. It also has a higher success rate than IVF alone. The best part is fertility acupuncture works alongside IVF enhancing the success rate for getting pregnant if you can afford both!

At Family Wellness Acupuncture here in Irvine, CA, our fertility acupuncture program has a success rate of around 87% in helping couples conceive. Our fertility acupuncture program stands as a testament to effectiveness and care. Here’s how our comprehensive program works for you:
