Fertility Acupuncture: Your Holistic Solution to Fertility Challenges

In the modern world, couples face a range of challenges when it comes to fertility, stemming from factors such as lifestyle, stress, medical conditions, and age. Whether the issues lie with male or female factors, or a combination of both, the journey to conception can be an emotional and physical rollercoaster.

We offer a comprehensive and integrative fertility program that harnesses the ancient practice of acupuncture, tailored specifically for modern fertility challenges. We understand the patterns of disharmony that can affect the body’s ability to conceive, and we use key acupuncture points and integrative medicine approaches to provide the best results.

Fertility Acupuncture: How Does It Help?

Fertility acupuncture is a treatment derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine that stimulates specific points on the body using thin needles. It is known to replenish the flow of Qi (life energy) by removing blockages and stimulating energy flow, which helps to bring balance to the body and ignite its natural healing mechanisms.

This practice has been shown to regulate hormones, improve circulation and uterine blood flow, and promote relaxation in the body and mind – all key factors for improving fertility outcomes in both men and women.

For women, fertility acupuncture can enhance ovarian and follicular function, strengthening and preparing the uterus for embryo implantation. For men, it can increase sperm motility and count while decreasing sperm morphology issues.

The Multifaceted Benefits of Fertility Acupuncture

  1. Miscarriage Prevention: Acupuncture can help relieve stress during the conception process and also contribute to miscarriage prevention. By stabilizing hormones, preparing the uterus for egg implantation, and minimizing stress, acupuncture addresses factors like genetics, hormonal imbalances, nutrition, and mental health.
  2. Healthy Hormonal Balance for Fertility: Fertility acupuncture helps regulate the body and assists the liver in eliminating toxins that impact hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, affecting fertility in both women and men.
  3. Sperm Motility and Concentration for Fertility: Fertility acupuncture has been extensively studied as a treatment for male infertility, including improving sperm motility and concentration. It reduces stress, improves hormonal balance, and enhances sperm quality.
  4. Endometriosis and Fertility: Acupuncture for endometriosis can decrease inflammation, allow for proper menstrual flow, and reduce pain and blood clots. It helps minimize stress and optimize estrogen clearance, addressing fertility struggles related to endometriosis.

Caring for people is my passion and one of the greatest callings life has to offer.  I am a seasoned Paramedic and Acupuncturist with extensive experience assisting patients as they cope with obvious and invisible injuries. I have been there for those in desperate medical, psychological or traumatic situations, delivered beautiful babies in vehicles parked along the side of the road, and administered care in such odd locations as on a domestic airliner at 30,000 feet or when flying emergency medevacs over Arabian desertscapes. I know full well how to care for those in true crisis but have also witnessed so many more whose illnesses and injuries could be traced back to their treatment of the body as a whole, whether through their diet, fitness levels, or neglect. As my career has evolved, so has my focus, which has shifted to helping a greater number of people early on to prevent minor issues from evolving into larger and costlier illnesses.  In my practice I have found a niche offering by pairing these strengths in emergency care and women’s health with the respected skills and techniques from top practitioners in oriental medicine. All care is focused on returning the body, mind, and spirit to a whole.

My academic preparation closely incorporates oriental medicine with Western healthcare. My passions build on natural strengths in highly stressful complex interactions, care management, and treatment of anxiety, depression and PTSD – particularly amongst Armed Forces and Emergency Services personnel. Within North America and the Middle East I have enjoyed a long standing career as a respected clinician, clinical educator, fire and emergency medical dispatcher.  I hold active licensure/registration with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), the College of Acupuncturists of Alberta (CAA), the California Acupuncture Board, and the Alberta Herbalists Association (AHA).  I am a past Board Director with the Alberta Pain Society and a present member of the CAA Competence Committee.
