Trying to conceive can be a challenging journey and at Turning Leaf Acupuncture we understand the physical and emotional obstacles that individuals face while trying to start a family.
Our practitioners are highly trained to understand how to approach fertility challenges with a Chinese Medical perspective for those trying to conceive naturally and through ART (Assisted Reproductive Therapy) as well as how to integrate acupuncture treatments with Western Medical approaches you may be considering.

- Improving Egg Quality
- Reducing FSH
- Increase Success Rates of Clomid/IUI/IVF/FET Treatments

During your first appointment at Turning Leaf Acupuncture much time will be spent discussing the health and wellness of you and your partner along with any fertility treatments you may have undergone. In Chinese Medicine it is important that both female and male partners are evaluated since factors contributing to fertility struggles can originate from one or both partners. Once the evaluations have been completed your practitioner will develop a treatment plan to specific to your health care needs.
Although beginning treatment during any phase of trying to conceive naturally or through ART can be helpful, our practitioners understand that optimum results are achieved when treatment begins well in advance of trying to become pregnant or undergoing ART. Preparing the body in advance allows for the patient and practitioner the opportunity to focus on the emotional and physical well-being of both partners thereby increasing the probability of not only achieving but also maintaining a healthy pregnancy.
I went to 2 fertility clinics where I was told the following: my hormone levels were off significantly, my thyroid level would make it difficult to conceive, I would probably never conceive with my own eggs, and my egg count is low, making it difficult to conceive. I began seeing Ms. Bacigalupi in Oct. 2011, and by Feb. 2012 I was pregnant. My husband and I credit her for helping in our long arduous journey to begin our family.
