Treatment Plan for Optimal Fertility

Dr. Kennedy will meet with you and your partner to learn more about your individual health history. We will discuss lifestyle factors that affect your health including diet, exercise, home and work environment and stress levels.

We will develop a treatment plan beginning with weekly acupuncture sessions lasting about one hour and an initial course of treatment consisting of 8-10 visits.

If you plan to undergo IVF treatments a special protocol is outlined by a European study which shows that eight acupuncture treatments, twice weekly for one month prior to transfer, increases blood flow to uterine arteries resulting in higher pregnancy rates.
