Enhance egg quality at Concept Wellness.

Doctors often tell us that IVF and IUI success comes down to egg quality.

Acupuncture is a proven method of improving egg quality, according to research. It increases blood flow to the ovaries, balances hormones, and maximizes the exposure of eggs to healthy nutrients.

One local reproductive endocrinologist remarked to his patient that her “eggs seemed to have reversed in age” after she followed our Concept Wellness treatment regimen. Indeed, after completing our program, she conceived via IVF, enjoyed a healthy pregnancy, and gave birth to a son. Three previous IVF attempts had been unsuccessful.

Start treatment at Concept Wellness three months prior to beginning IVF or IUI. This is the special window of time in which we can enhance the health of the fluid that nourishes eggs, prior to ovulation or IVF/IUI stimulation

In our care, you are drawing on a large body of expertise. First, we have a three-pronged approach, combining Eastern, Western, and functional medicine. And we are connected to San Diego’s premier fertility specialists, enhancing and complementing their services.

“Battling secondary infertility and a failed embryo transfer, I took a break from IVF and worked with Riann to assess my hormonal needs, nourish my body, and focus on my mental health. I finally felt comfortable and healthy enough to go through with another procedure six months later and we were able to achieve our miracle. . . I am a total believer.

Day of Embryo Transfer

We offer acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer both in our office or at your fertility clinic when booked in advance. Our team has worked in all of the top fertility centers in San Diego.

The acupuncture treatments relax the uterus, stabilize the endocrine system, and calm the patient. These combined effects decrease the chance of uterine contractions and enhance implantation. In fact, a German study showed higher pregnancy rates among patients who had a specific acupuncture treatment prior to and after embryo transfer. Indeed, 42.5 percent of patients who had had acupuncture, experienced clinical pregnancy, compared to 26.3% of the control group (those who did not receive acupuncture) who had positive outcomes.

We’ve treated the gamut—and helped many conceive.
