Mind/Body Stress Management and Infertility Treatment

Don't underestimate mind/body connection. A recent study has once again confirmed a powerful link between stress and infertility, demonstrating that stress management during in vitro fertiliztion (IVF) cycle increase a chance of pregnancy by 160%!  

Our mind and body wellness programs are tailored to the patient’s individual needs and include nutrition, acupuncture and psychological consultation.

Our very experienced Certified Psychotherapist, Elaine Frankel, L.M.S.W., A.C.P.-P.R.  will help you with stress management.

If we feel you may benefit from diet or life-stile modifications, you will be seen by Dr. Jodi Altman, D.C.

Several studies have demonstrated beneficial effects of acupuncture for fertility management for both, women and men. American Pregnancy Association recommends acupuncture as a part of comprehensive infertility treatment. Therefore, we are happy to host Sara Fan, ND, DOM, a board certified acupuncturist with many years of experience.
