SUSTAINABLE WELLNESS THROUGH PERSONALIZED HOLISTIC HEALTH CARE
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been dealing with fertility and
women's health for five thousand years. During the Shang dynasty (1500 BC), Tuina
massage was used to treat gynecological and pediatric conditions, as found in
inscriptions on tortoise shells. Herbal medicine was used to treat infertility
in an ancient medical text, Journal of Mountains and Sees, published in 475 BC. The
canon of traditional Chinese medicine, Huang Di Internal Classic (Huang Di Nei Jing),
describes comprehensive treatment for amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) and
menorrhagia (heavy or long periods); it attributes women's reproductive changes to
certain acupoint meridians (220 BC).
At Chi Wellness Clinic, we follow the TCM philosophy that every woman is a unique and
special person. The root cause of infertility, or other reproductive conditions, needs
to be assessed on an individual basis. Each woman has the potential to restore her balance and
We provide acupuncture treatment for women who seek natural pregnancy or assisted
production procedures such as IUI and IVF. The frequency of acupuncture ranges from
1-3 times per week, depending on their signs and symptoms. If women have greater
fertility difficulties, we highly recommend them to also take regular Chinese
herbal medicine. We use three proprietary formulas (termed PreM, M and PostM),
in tea form made of natural herbs, each menstrual cycle. We provide a list
of English names for Chinese herbs for patients or their physicians to review.
In general, many reproductive problems take at least three months to be fully treated. Patients should expect some positive effect even if they incorporate acupuncture
in a later phase of trying to achieve fertility.
