Acupuncture for Fertility
The classical Chinese explanation of acupuncture is that channels of energy run in regular patterns throughout the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others.
The meridians may be influenced by needling the acupuncture points allowing the acupuncture needles to unblock the obstructions at the dams and reestablishing the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.
The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones, which influence the body’s internal regulating system.
The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
Dr. Amy is absolutely amazing. We started seeing Dr. Amy after 3 failed IUI’s and discovered I had PCOS. Dr. Amy was able to help me regulate my periods and help treat my PCOS symptoms with herb medicine and acupuncture. She is a best Chinese Medicine Dr in California! She is incredibly skilled, highly qualified and amazing.
There are no words to describe the gratitude I have for Dr. Lee and Jang! They are both so kind, professional and very knowledgeable. I worked with Dr. Lee towards and end of my first pregnancy and it definitely helped with my anxiety and sciatic pain in the third trimester. She also helped with inducing my labor as I was 40 weeks pregnant. She definitely helped with bringing on my labor and allowed me to have a relatively easy delivery. I continued working with Dr. Lee to regulate my hormones after child birth and get pregnant with my second baby. Thank you Dr. Lee and Jang. We love you!
We fell so fortunate to have found this place! I came to see her for help with unexplained infertility and she has been an absolute godsend on my journey. Dr. Lee is so knowledgeable in her field, an artist in Chinese Medicine and an expert in fertility. I learn so much from her and the custom treatments she gives me make me feel so peaceful and relaxed. I have really noticed an improvement in my overall well-being. I’m doing so much better than when I first came to her. My body, mind and spirit are transforming from the inside out and have a renewed sense of hope. You will surely be in good hands with such a special doctor in such a special place!
Dr. Lee is a miracle worker. I always leave her office feeling realigned and reenergized. I started going to her during my pregnancy. She helped me feel great during my pregnancy, and she helped to prepare me for my labor and birth. I truly believe it made a huge difference. She was beyond supportive, and is now a great support postpartum. We don’t know what we would do without her as a part of our wellness routine. I am so beyond grateful to have come across her during my pregnancy. I am so thankful to have found her!
My husband and I had been trying to conceive for nearly a year. I had also tried other acupuncture treatment and Chinese herb medicine but didn’t find a critical improvement. The western fertility doctor suggested me go straight to IVF considering my age and AMH level, I found Dr. Amy like the last straw before starting IVF treatments. Dr. Amy taught me how should I eat clean, non-toxic food and the how should I change my life style to reduce stress which helps to balance my hormone. My husband and I made our decision to start our IVF treatments due to the concern my age but I really which I could have found Dr Amy 6 months earlier. She made dietary recommendations and this has been helpful for detox and feeling more energized. I highly recommend her for fertility services, it has absolutely been worth it.
Dr. Lee is an amazing healer! I came here as a last resort, after two miscarriages at age 39 with bad tests result (high FSA and low AMH). My western doctor had recommended IVF at this point but I wanted to try something different. Dr. Lee had a set program for me. I followed all her recommendations and a couple of months into the treatment, I was pregnant naturally. Thank you for all your help!
