Fertility: Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine for IVF & IUI in Napa

Having difficulties getting pregnant? Acupuncture and herbal medicine are effective at enhancing fertility. At Vital Health, we treat both men and women using a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, and lifestyle and dietary recommendations to assist with fertility. We are passionate about assisting couples in getting pregnant and dedicated to providing the support you need during this important life event.  Give your body the boost it needs to conceive naturally.

Fertility enhancement is not
just about infertility issues. Oriental medicine helps to prepare the womb and balance the body prior to pregnancy to provide a healthy environment during gestation for you and your baby.

Acupuncture helps with conception by increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, regulating the hormonal system and decreasing stress. When combined with herbal medicine, conditions like endometriosis and fibroids respond even better. Herbal medicine is also very effective at correcting any deficiencies which may exist in your body's Qi, blood, yin, yang and
Jing/essence. Over time, Oriental Medicine improves the quality of eggs, sperm and the endometrium lining, increasing the chance of a successful implantation.

Customization of herbal formulas is very important when treating fertility, especially with women, since women's menstrual patterns, constitutions and pathologies vary greatly. No two women will be given the same combination of herbs. At Vital Health, we typically compound your formulas using a concentrated granular (powdered) form of herbs. All you need to do is mix a few scoops with hot water 2-3 times/day. Depending on your presentation, we may treat you using the 4-phase system with different herbal formulas customized for each phase of your menstrual cycle; or one formula may be prescribed for the entire time. Best results are obtained when both partners are treated.

Treatments can safely be done in conjunction with or before In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) to help improve fertility factors and increase the rate of successful implantation and pregnancy. Studies have shown that acupuncture before and after these procedures increases the rate of pregnancy.


We encourage you to call our office and arrange for a complimentary consultation with your partner to discuss treatment options. Treatment for three to six months prior to conception (whether naturally or with ART/IVF) is ideal to allow the body reach an enhanced state and hormonal balance. Treatments are typically continued until desired pregnancy is achieved. With "unexplained infertility," best results are often obtained when both partners are treated.
