Affordable Accessible Fertility Acupuncture in Austin!

Have you ever felt the high prices of modern fertility treatments in both western assisted reproductive technology and eastern acupuncture are limiting your visits even though you feel it is working . . . let’s face it, modern fertility treatments can be hard on the pocketbook.

Western fertility intervention can also be hard on your health and body as well.  For couples wading through the waters of fertility, affordable holistic support can be the perfect fit — it’s good for your health and your pocketbook, making it work on your family budget.

I’ve helped countless couples and single mothers by choice realize their dream of a baby through acupuncture, herbal medicine and holistic health care coaching over the last 15 years in my own practice, an eastern medicine fertility clinic, and now at my favorite place – this wonderful affordable and accessible clinic Acupuncture Together.  Ashley O’Brian, the clinic owner and myself have a combined 26 years of experience as acupuncturists, and we both live and raise our own kids in the Brentwood Neighborhood where we treat patients.

At Acupuncture Together we provide $25.00 treatments so couples can partake often enough to actually make a positive difference in their health and fertility without going into debt to do so!  Couples can even get  “acupuncture together” in our comfortable group setting!  So you can get poked here, then go home and get poked again!  Speaking of . . . treating male fertility, it is just as important as female fertility and often goes unattended to.  Fact is over half of couples that have fertility issues have an unidentified contributing issue found in the male partner, like low sperm count, poor morphology, varicocele, all of which acupuncture helps to correct.

Acupuncture partnered with good diet, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can help you conceive and carry a healthy baby to term.  Advanced maternal age is one factor to consider as couples are waiting longer to start families, however as I know from my own personal experience, even at an advanced age women can conceive when they tend mindfully to their overall body health and balance – reducing chronic stress, examining the quality of their diet, considering factors in the environment and elsewhere that disrupt the hormonal balance, incorporating good self care rituals and getting acupuncture!

In fact, it has been estimated that acupuncture can increase your likelihood of pregnancy by 40-60%…that’s comparable with a lot of drug-based fertility treatments out there.  Studies show acupuncture alone can help to correct infertility issues . . .

  • Acupuncture improves blood flow to the uterus, ovaries and male reproductive organs —strengthening the male and female reproductive organ systems making conceiving and carrying a baby more possible.
  • Balances male and female hormones and hormone cycles
  • Regulates digestion and other organ functions, which is vital to fertility.  
  • Reduces body tension, stress and anxiety – helping your body breathe, let go and relax so it can do what it’s innately able to do — conceive and carry a healthy baby to term.

So consider Acupuncture Together — your affordable, accessible and well established acupuncture clinic in north central Austin as a part of your fertility care team.  We will take excellent care of you!

Pregnancy and Postpartum Care $25.00 a Treatment at Acupuncture Together!

Excellent self care during pregnancy and afterwards in the postpartum year sets the stage for well-being throughout motherhood and the nourishment extends to your child, family and beyond.  Taking care of yourself first really matters!

Many things contribute to well-being during pregnancy, including plenty of rest, eating a well rounded nutritious diet, gentle exercise, stress management and nurturing your passions to mention a few.

Acupuncture treatments are excellent self care to help keep your body’s energies flowing freely, balancing and relaxing so your body can focus on what it is innately able to do — grow a strong healthy baby and stay healthy afterwards!

In addition to relaxing your body and helping to manage stress, regular acupuncture relieves common minor ailments experienced during a pregnancy — for instance back and hip pain, neck and shoulder tension, achy joints, carpal tunnel, numbness and tingling in fingers, sciatica, pregnancy rhinitis, swelling of hands and feet, fatigue and more.

Taking care of yourself also teaches your children the importance of self care in their own lives. My heartfelt advice is to become solidly settled into rituals of self care during your pregnancy which will enable you to care for others from a full cup and avoid going into motherhood depleted.  A solid self care practice during pregnancy will keep your reserves flowing for when they are needed even more — in motherhood!

Schedule your appointment at Acupuncture Together to get started in your acupuncture self-care ritual for the pregnancy and postpartum years.
