The Elements of Health Centre is the first Chinese Medicine clinic on Vancouver Island to focus on reproductive health. Our practitioners have completed extensive training in the treatment of infertility and keep up-to-date with the latest research in reproductive medicine.
We work closely with a number of doctors and OB/GYNs in Victoria, including the doctors and staff at the Victoria Fertility Centre. At the Elements of Health Centre you will have the benefits of a holistic approach that integrates the ancient wisdom of the East with the latest modern advances in Western Medicine.
Studies have shown that fertility acupuncture may increase the chances of conceiving naturally or with assisted reproductive treatments like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
Fertility acupuncture can help optimize your fertility by:
- Balancing the hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation
- Improving blood flow to your reproductive organs
- Increasing the thickness and receptivity of your uterine lining
- Reducing anxiety and stress
