Reproductive Health


Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have been helping couples conceive for thousands of years.

These practices can increase conception rates when used on their own as well as in conjunction with modern fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization.

Welcome to the website of Dr. Gifford, a TCM reproductive specialist who offers acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) treatments for female and male infertility. With years of experience and a deep understanding of the body’s natural healing mechanisms, Dr. Gifford provides personalized treatment plans for each of her patients, focusing on holistic and natural approaches to promote fertility and overall wellness.

Acupuncture and TCM have been used for thousands of years to treat various health conditions, including infertility. Here are some of the medical benefits of acupuncture and TCM for patients seeking treatment for female and male infertility:

Irregular menstrual cycles can affect fertility by making it harder to predict ovulation. Acupuncture and TCM can help regulate the menstrual cycle, making it more predictable and increasing the chances of conception.

Acupuncture and TCM can improve blood flow to the ovaries, which can increase ovarian function, promote follicle development, and improve the quality of eggs.

For male infertility, acupuncture and TCM can increase sperm count and motility by improving blood flow to the testes and reducing inflammation in the reproductive system.

Infertility can be a stressful and emotional journey. Acupuncture and TCM can help reduce stress and anxiety, which can improve overall reproductive health and increase the chances of conception.

Hormonal imbalances can affect fertility, and acupuncture and TCM can help balance hormones naturally. This can be particularly beneficial for women with conditions such as PCOS or endometriosis.

Acupuncture and TCM treatments focus on the whole person, promoting overall health and wellness. This can improve the body’s natural ability to conceive and carry a pregnancy to term.

Acupuncture and TCM provide a safe, effective, drug-free, and natural approach to treating infertility and enjoying a healthy pregnancy.

Studies reported by The American Pregnancy Association suggest that the most effective fertility treatments involve a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and traditional interventions. However, conception can occur without medical interventions when acupuncture and herbal medicines are used alone. 

At Dr. Gifford’s clinic, each patient receives personalized care and attention, with treatment plans tailored to their unique needs and goals. Whether you are struggling with infertility or simply looking to improve your overall reproductive health, acupuncture and TCM can provide safe and effective solutions.

Consider acupuncture during your pregnancy and birth. Acupuncture has been found useful for relieving labor pain, nausea, vomiting, and significantly reducing the duration of labor. Acupuncture and TCM can help with a breech birth.
