Welcome to Acupuncture Infertility Care, Richmond’s only Traditional Chinese Medical practice devoted solely to helping women overcome challenges in Fertility and Conception.  Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help you conceive, have a healthy pregnancy, and have a healthy full term baby.  Although I’ve treated fertility issues throughout my career, I have had this specialty practice treating Women who face challenges with Fertility since 2008.


My approach is simple and unique.  In addition to comprehensive Acupuncture treatment of any constitutional imbalances as diagnosed by Traditional Chinese Medical theory, I treat and advocate for the reduction of stress.  Over the years I’ve arrived at the firm belief that stress plays a significant role as an obstacle to female fertility that is often overlooked or minimized.  Please see my page on Stress and Fertility  for more information.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been shown to be effective when used with Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART).  Combining Traditional Chinese Medicine with ART increases the likelihood of conception and a full term healthy pregnancy by about 50% per procedure.

Following is a demonstration video of acupuncture as used for Fertility.  It provides a good stepping off point for getting a basic idea of what Fertility and Acupuncture working together looks like.
