Treating infertility is one of the clinic's specialities. Liuzhen is proud to have helped hundreds of families welcome their babies to this world. She is experienced in providing wholly TCM solutions (acupuncture and herbal medicine) and in giving IVF support. Many patients experiencing difficulties with only IVF treatments have achieved success at the clinic. IVF focuses on boosting the quantity and quality of the germline cells, but often neglects to address the patients' overall wellbeing.

There are many reasons why TCM practices can help female infertility.

The first is using acupuncture and herbal medicine to improve blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, which can enhance ovarian function and increase the chances of successful fertilization. Liuzhen likes to draw an analogy between the human body and soil. If the germline cells such as the sperm and eggs are considered seeds, the body's overall well-being can be considered soil. When a seed fails to germinate, it could be due to the poor quality of the soil it is placed in. Likewise, in addition to better circulation, treatments may also help regulate the menstrual cycle and improve the quality of the uterine lining, making it more receptive to a fertilized egg.

The second way TCM practices help with infertility is through stress reduction and hormonal re-balancing. In many cases, poor life habits or stress lead to an imbalance. It is our observation that by bringing the body into balance, infertility often resolves on its own. In modern medicinal terms, physical and psychological stress can not only lead to increased inflammation, which triggers the body to focus less on reproductive functions and more on immune responses, but it can also exacerbate hormone imbalance and disrupt the menstrual cycle.

It is important to note that acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a regulated practice, and should be used as part of a comprehensive fertility treatment plan and under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
