At Thomas Acupuncture & Wellness, we provide integrative care using a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicines, and personalized dietary recommendations as needed to support both before and after various routes of conception, including IUI, IVF, donor eggs/sperm, and natural conception.
At our clinic, we strive to work in partnership with allopathic reproductive specialists to help couples heal from within by finding the root cause of unexplained fertility. Our natural and whole-body approach focuses on improving female and male reproductive health to create an optimal internal environment for conception and full-term pregnancy. Post-partum care is also offered to promote recovery and healing after delivery.

Pregnancy & Post-Partum Care
our treatment focuses more on dietary therapy and lifestyle recommendations to encourage a smooth pregnancy for both the mother and child. We offer one-on-one consultations, both in-person and online via telemedicine appointments, for continued monitoring and holistic care throughout the pregnancy.
the body will experience a number of changes and trauma, and we believe post-partum care is equally crucial to help return the body to a state of balance and promote healing. During this period, your treatment will focus on restorative acupuncture and dietary therapy to:
Help boost your body’s healing abilities internally and with the healing of cesarean-section scars
Restore & improve blood supply and circulation
Improve energy levels and pain
Rebalance hormones and emotional fluctuations—i.e. post-partum depression, anxiety, stress
Help build lactation
Address persistent bleeding
Relieve abdominal pain
Resolve night sweats
Post-partum holistic dietary therapy is offered via in-person or online consultations anytime after delivery.
The first 40 days after childbirth is crucial for the mothers and their healing process, and utilizing the right holistic nutrition approaches can significantly help during this phase.
