Upon filling out and returning an Intake Form, we will contact you to arrange an initial interview.
Oriental Medical Therapy alone:
If you are seeking assistance for fertility enhancement with acupuncture and herbal therapy alone, you should be prepared for 3 – 6 months of treatment, dependent on the cause of the infertility. The following is a generic scenario:
A.R.T. and Oriental Medicine combined:
-If you are seeking acupuncture and/or herbal therapy as adjuncts to A.R.T. there are a few suggested generic scenarios:
Ideally we would like to see our clients for 3 months prior to beginning an ART schedule. In this case, the protocol would be similar to the one above.
-If you are on an IUI protocol, we suggest 9 acupuncture treatments before insemination, one treatment immediately, or the evening before, insemination, and one treatment 2 - 4 days after insemination. These treatments can all be done in our clinic.
-If you are seeking pre and post acupuncture treatments at the time of embryo transfer alone, or in conjunction with the options above, you must contact us at least a week before your egg retrieval. After an initial treatment before egg retrieval, the following protocol is followed for women:
Initial intake including consultation, assement, dietary & life style advices, examination and a treatment
After the initial session
On the day of embryo transfer
During weekdays (Mon-Fri)
All fees are payable at the time of services rendered by cash, cheque or e-transfer. We are not able to accept credit or debit cards. Please note that the “Initial Fertility Intake” includes the first acupuncture treatment. As a courtesy, please allow 48 hours notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment; this allows us to reschedule the time for another client. A cancellation or rescheduling of less than 24 hours may result in the full rate being charged. We are acutely aware of the changing schedules of our fertility clients and most certainly take this into consideration. Your efforts to keep us informed and up to date concerning your schedule and ongoing procedures is appreciated.
