The Nest is so very pleased to announce that we will now be working with Institute for Human Reproduction patients offering on-site pre/post embryo transfer acupuncture treatment at 900 N. Michigan Ave.

We will work with Dr. David Cohen and Dr. Ilan Tur-Kaspa in effort to increase positive treatment outcomes. This is a major step forward in promoting the benefits of integrative reproductive medicine and we are honored to be part of the process.

Benefits of Pre and Post acupuncture treatment:

  • Relaxation/stress reduction
  • Fosters blood flow to the uterus
  • Assists in relaxing the uterus before/after embryo transfer

The design of this treatment approach is to improve patient response and experience by promoting a calm, stress-free environment in effort to optimize the body’s ability to foster pregnancy.
