Acupuncture for IVF support in Brisbane

Soothe Acupuncture and Tui Na Bodywork is a Brisbane natural medicine clinic that sees women who are embarking on IVF, conveniently located in Holland Park in the Brisbane south area.

For more than 10 years, we’ve been providing acupuncture to couples from throughout Brisbane, particularly our nearby suburbs of Coorparoo, Stones Corner, Mount Gravatt East, Annerley, Tarragindi and Camp Hill.

These days, many health practitioners may recommend acupuncture as an adjunct treatment that might assist with IVF treatment.

Is acupuncture for IVF, for you?

If you’re having trouble conceiving, or are in a same-sex relationship and want to have children, you are probably thinking about IVF and other Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART).

Our acupuncture for IVF support program is for people who choose to unite ART with acupuncture.

Our acupuncture for IVF support approach

Our acupuncture for IVF support programs borrow from the techniques identified by systemic reviews.

Who comes to see us?

Usually, we see two types of women:

  • those who have already been through many IVF cycles and are now seeking additional support
  • others who have not yet started IVF and are contemplating combining their rounds with acupuncture.

Sometimes, we see people only on their embryo transfer day.

What’s involved?

We adapt our acupuncture for IVF support programs to the unique needs of every one who comes in to see us.

A typical program with us involves:

  • a detailed Chinese medicine assessment including a review of your diet and wellbeing
  • Chinese medicine dietary and lifestyle advice
  • acupuncture sessions to complement IVF, IUI or other ART processes
  • acupuncture at key dates in your round, such as before egg collection and around the time of embryo transfer.

So your experience with us might involve acupuncture, herbs, and dietary and lifestyle advice.

We are here to support you every step of the way.
