Nest practitioners are highly trained and specialized in fertility acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.  Our fertility treatment success rates are derived from our extensive postgraduate training and deep understanding of physiology, from both an eastern and western medicine perspective.

One of the wonderful assets of Chinese medicine is that it is extremely beneficial for all and it can be employed in every type of fertility scenario. Whether fertility issues are rooted in hormonal imbalance, autoimmune conditions, advanced maternal age, PCOS, fibroids/cysts, unexplained cause, or as a supportive treatment to an assisted reproductive therapy (IUI, IVF, FET, donor egg cycle, etc..) Chinese medicine greatly increases the chances of becoming pregnant and maintaining pregnancy. It is safe, gentle, and offers lasting health benefits beyond fertility.

Our highest priority is to help women better understand their body and their fertility via the lens of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). We meet each patient where they currently are on their fertility journey and work with them to create a comprehensive, customized treatment plan—everything from the acupuncture, custom herbal medicine blends, eastern diet therapy, and lifestyle counseling. This specialized approach is the framework that IS The Nest. We credit our training and understanding of classical Chinese medicine to our high level of success and positive case outcomes, especially in dealing with difficult fertility cases.

We are humbled by the recognition we have received for our work and are proud to provide this type of care to our patients.

We look forward to meeting you!
