Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Solutions
In TCM, we believe that a deficient, stagnation or imbalance condition in his or her body will block individual’s energy (qi) and blood flow and it leads to infertility or other problems. Infertility treatments focuses on the energy flow, regulation of menstruation, and strengthen the organ system. The goal of our treatment is to tonify, remove stasis or re-harmonize the individual’s energy (qi) and blood flow as a result of enhancing the function of the whole body.
Treating the Meridian System
The kidney is an essential part of the energy generation system. A low energy level will not be sufficient to carry a baby and can lead to miscarriages. A busy and stressful environment and lifestyle can contribute to kidney deficiencies.
The heart is the center of the emotional state and its functionality can be disrupted by hormonal imbalances as well as stress. A relaxed mind without pressure is an important part of the treatment.
The liver regulates a smooth flow of blood, energy and menstruation. Stagnation can lead to depression and anxiety resulting in menstrual irregularities that need to be balanced. Yin and Yang tonification can support regular menstruation.
