Fertility 101: Complementary Therapies


Triangle Acupuncture Clinic has been providing acupuncture services for infertility to couples in the Triangle since 2004. In addition to clinics in Chapel Hill and Cary, Triangle Acupuncture Clinic will be offering acupuncture treatments at Carolina Conceptions. The acupuncturists work closely with gynecologists and reproductive endocrinologists to promote the benefits of integrating Chinese medicine with the Western medical treatments patients may be receiving.

Acupuncture offers a natural approach to treating infertility. It helps to support patients during In Vitro Fertilization, Artificial Insemination, and Hormonal Therapy cycles. Studies have shown that acupuncture may have a favorable effect on the success rate of these procedures and also helps to alleviate their uncomfortable side effects. It does so by balancing reproductive hormones, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs to promote follicle production and egg and endometrial health and by improving sperm count, motility and morphology.

All acupuncture services from Triangle Acupuncture Clinic at Carolina Conceptions are provided by North Carolina State Licensed and National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) certified acupuncturists. Each practitioner in our clinic has an un dergraduate degree as well as a four-year Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Their medical education included extensive training in Chinese medical theory and diagnosis, acupuncture, herbal medicine, western medical theory and diagnosis, as well as massage, tai qi and qi gong. Our licensed acupuncturists currently have the highest level of training nationally, with over 2800 hours of training. Triangle Acupuncture Clinic was also voted the 2005 “Newcomer Business of the Year” by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce.
