WAY Wellness Center Fertility Enhancement protocols are a comprehensive program of acupuncture, massage, herbal, nutritional and lifestyle coaching. We are happy to work as an alternative to, or in conjunction with, traditional western infertility medicine.
Fertility enhancement begins with a smooth, regular menstrual cycle and active, healthy sperm. Acupuncture can treat menstrual problems such as PMS, excessively heavy periods, pain with menstruation or ovulation, absence of periods, or irregular cycles. Additionally, acupuncture and herbs can help with male fertility enhancement.
Acupuncture can also affect other fertility factors such as habitual miscarriage, elevated FSH, low progesterone, ovulation disorders, uterus and cervical disorders, endometriosis, immunological factors, polycystic ovaries, advanced maternal age.
Many of our patients also get regular fertility massage. Using techniques of craniosacral, reflexology, abdominal massage, warm castor oil pack compresses, and Shiatsu, Fertility Massage helps prepare the body naturally to conceive a healthy baby. Castor oil pack helps the body to cleanse and prepare the body for conception, while the fertility massage includes deep pelvic friction to break up adhesions and increase blood flow to the pelvic organs. Craniosacral and reflexology work to restore the body’s natural rhythms and prepare for a healthy pregnancy.
Children respond amazingly well to acupuncture. Our practitioners treat a variety of conditions that effect children such as allergies, asthma, digestive problems and pain-related injuries. We also carry a full line of pediatric herbs. Watch the video above of a 2 year old receiving acupuncture at our clinic.
Cleansing programs are individualized based on a patient’s health issues and wellness goals. Many times this cleansing will assist with systemic inflammation, digestion, moods and more.
Cosmetic acupuncture works by increasing circulation of qi and blood throughout the face which stimulates collagen production, increases elasticity, lessens the appearance of fine wrinkles, tightens the skin, and produces a radiant, healthy glow. Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging that is less expensive, healthier and safer than modern procedures. It is virtually risk free withnone of the side effects associated with surgery such as scarring, prolonged bruising or numbness.
