Infertility causes stress, anyone who's tried to get pregnant and been unsuccessful on their own knows this. Relieving stress can help you make better decisions, enjoy your life more fully and stay more hopeful- even when in the middle of a fertility treatment cycle.
Is there really a difference between an acupuncturist and a fertility acupuncturist? RMACT's (Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut) fertility acupuncturists Amy Matton, MS, L.Ac and Elaine Malin, MTCM, L.Ac have all spent years working specifically with infertility patients. In addition to that, each of them work with five board certified Reproductive Endocrinologists. That enables them to check in with fertility specialists when they see new research or data concerning acupuncture treatment for someone in fertility treatment.
