Fertility & Preconception

Our specialty, tailored to your needs.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to enhance fertility—and at Concept Wellness, this is a particular expertise of ours.

Proven Treatments

Studies show acupuncture can optimize your chances of conceiving naturally—and with IVF and IUI.

Decades of Experience

Initially named Conception Wellness, we are experts in reproductive and hormonal health.

Calming & Nurturing

Your emotions matter. Especially when you’re trying to conceive—or have had your confidence shaken on a quest for fertility.

Conception is in our name.

Our practitioners bring decades of experience to reproductive and hormonal health. Indeed, our practice was initially named Conception Wellness, speaking to the expertise for which we were known.

Our senior acupuncturists are nurses who spent years working in labor and delivery. Our massage therapists specialize in prenatal and pregnancy massage; one is even a doula.

Fertility specialists often refer patients to us. And several agencies partner with us to maximize the health and wellbeing of surrogates.

Whether you are preparing to bear a child or have encountered difficulties conceiving, you are in very good hands at Concept Wellness. Acupuncture, herbal formulas, dietary and lifestyle suggestions bolster your body’s innate power—and improve egg health, should you pursue IVF or IUI.

Because of my appointments with Lisa, I now have a beautiful four month old daughter who was conceived naturally. (We had gone through 3 years with unexplained infertility, had seen many REs, two IUIs and were told we had a 1% chance of conceiving without in vitro).

Being diagnosed with ‘unexplained infertility’ was so frustrating because I knew deep down that something was wrong. No one analyzed all of my data, blood tests, fertility charts, etc. the way Lisa did. Much to my surprise, a few months later I got pregnant…

Preconception care lays a healthy foundation.

Ripe for ovulation, an egg your fallopian tube drops today has already been maturing for 90 days. Similarly, it takes 74 days for a sperm to develop so it can swim forward and fertilize an egg.

So, we start cultivating your wellness months before the mature egg and sperm meet.

Chinese medicine has long held—and Western medicine now confirms with the study of epigenetics—that the health of the future child is determined by the health of the mother and father at the time of conception. This is why we place so much emphasis on preconception care and wellness.

Conditions such as inflammation—in the mother or father’s body—can turn on certain genes in the embryo. This is why it is so important to be as healthy as possible while trying to conceive. Acupuncture, massage, Chinese herbs and supplements, diet, exercise, and stress management are among the ways we set the stage for fertility and healthy conception. Our three-week, anti-inflammatory cleanse is a superb preparation for pregnancy.

Perhaps more importantly, preconception care does what a flight attendant tells you to do—to first take care of yourself before you attend to a child. Concept Wellness nurtures a prioritization of self care that is often lost in a quest for fertility—and in society as women become mothers.

Indeed, both men and women benefit from preconception treatments that calm the system, remove toxins, foster oxygen-rich blood flow, and promote balance in hormones and healing energy.

Bless yourself, body & soul, with the Fertility Bundle.

You don’t need to be a client nor fill out any long forms. Just make an appointment, show up, and enjoy Concept Wellness’ Fertility Bundle—a combined session of specialized acupuncture and massage.

Research shows that acupuncture and fertility massage naturally increase the chances of conception. The bundle can help you conceive naturally—and can prime the body for undergoing ART such as IVF, IUI, Frozen Embryo Transfer, and Donor Egg Cycle.

Best time to book?

  • If you are trying to conceive naturally, schedule the treatment between days 4 and 14 of your menstrual cycle.
  • If you’re undergoing ART, get weekly treatments six to eight weeks prior to egg retrieval, embryo transfer, or insemination.

At Concept Wellness, we enhance your health every step of the way, from conception through your pregnancy and beyond.
