For Those Going Through Assisted Fertility Treatment (IUI’s or IVF):
Chinese Medicine is not a therapy that can be rushed. It is said in order to grow a healthy crop one must prepare the soil before planting. Such is the case with a pregnancy. When you visit Sage, we will shift the focus on your health and goals, suggesting changes that you can make in order to prepare your body for a strong and healthy pregnancy. Traditionally, Chinese Medicine practices recommend waiting three months to present a significant change in the body. During the course of our treatments, we will provide regular acupuncture treatments designed to soothe you and strengthen your reproductive system. We work to enhance each phase of the cycle: follicular, ovulatory, luteal and menstrual.Prior and during this period of time we can make significant improvements to benefit fertility.
