Dr. Chin offers acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine treatments in addition to modern fertility treatment. Acupuncture is completely optional, but it helps many patients overcome emotional or physical struggles that can lead to fertility issues.  

In China, infertility rates are around 3%, while infertility in the USA is around 15%. One key difference is that many Chinese people practice acupuncture for fertility treatment while Americans do not.  

Holistic Health Fertility Benefits

Often, western medicine is focused on addressing issues, solving problems, and looking for medical abnormalities. While this approach does work, it often neglects overall bodily wellness and holistic health. That is where traditional Chinese medicine, like acupuncture, comes in.  

Acupunture to Treat Infertility

Acupuncture is focused on helping energy flow throughout the body and assisting each part of the body in working together. Remember, fertility does not just involve the reproductive organs. Pregnancy requires all the systems of the body to work together for the good of the mother and baby. 

Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine and its roots date back over 2,500 years to ancient China. Based on the idea that a healthy body requires a healthy flow of energy, called Qi (pronounced chee or chi), acupuncture helps break up blockages in your nerve pathways, called meridians. Things like stress and trauma can cause blockages that prevent the flow of Qi. There are over 1,200 acupoints on the body that correspond to a particular organ and its function.  

What does Fertility Acupuncture Look Like?

During acupuncture, thin, sterile needles are inserted into specific acupoints that correspond to a patient’s needs. The needles are left in place for between 15 and 30 minutes during which time Dr. Chin may apply other forms of stimulation like finger pressure, heat, or ultrasound. 

This process is completely painless, and patients often experience deep relaxation and a sense of well-being. It is even common for patients to fall into a deep sleep during treatment.  

Dr. Chin is the only fertility expert in the country to practice acupuncture and he was trained at Stanford.

How does Acupuncture Help with IVF and IUI?

Acupuncture is used to unlock the flow of energy within the body and is often used to address emotional trauma that can sometimes contribute to fertility issues. In addition to other fertility treatments, Dr. Chin uses acupuncture to help guide energy flow to the reproductive organs and chooses the right acupoints based on your diagnosis.
