Acupuncture For Infertility

To help our patients who desire to utilize complementary medicine during their treatment, Houston IVF has partnered with Eastern Harmony, a holistic treatment center specializing in complementary therapy services.  Eastern Harmony works in partnership with Eastern HarmonyHouston IVF physicians to strengthen the entire system, with special focus on the reproductive system, so that the patient's body and overall health are at their peak. Acupuncture can safely be used prior to and concurrently with fertility medications and procedures such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Their services do not replace advanced reproductive technology procedures, but rather supports both patient and health care provider during this stressful period.
Studies have shown that acupuncture:

 Calms the nervous system
 Improves blood flow through the pelvic region
 May improve pregnancy rates when used in conjunction with IVF

Dr Sadhna Singh, is the practitioner at Houston clinic and does the new and follow-up patient consultations, acupuncture treatments and herbal prescriptions.To learn more or schedule an appointment, go to the Eastern Harmony website at www.easternharmonyclinic.com.
