Studies have shown acupuncture to increase the efficacy of IVF up to 60%, as well as significantly decrease the likelihood of negative side effects from the treatments.
If you schedule IVF, acupuncture can be performed right in your doctors office in conjunction with your procedure. Contact Abby for more information or to schedule the procedure.
