    There is continuing research on how acupuncture can assist with the effectiveness of IVF treatment. Many health practitioners may recommend acupuncture as a supplementary treatment that may assist with IVF. Consult your treating practitioner/s about how acupuncture may be able to help you.

About Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Traditional Chinese Medicine or simply ‘Chinese Medicine’ or ‘TCM’ is a system of medicine developed in China that has a completely different history and approach to Western medicine. Rather than treating disease or the symptoms of disease, a practitioner of Chinese medicine treats patterns of disharmony that he or she identifies in a patient.

Acupuncture and herbs are both an integral part of Chinese medicine practice, which may help patients to manage a range of symptoms including pain, stress and fatigue.

Chinese medicine is generally considered to be safe but occasionally (as with all health treatments) may be associated with possible adverse reactions in individual cases.


Your initial consultation, including your first treatment is only $120. The duration of your initial acupuncture consult will be approximately 60 minutes. During this consult, your practitioner will discuss your medical history and current health concerns, carry out a number of Traditional Chinese Medical tests, explain the goals of treatment and answer any questions you may have.

Follow-up thirty-minute consultations are $90.

Longer follow-up sixty-minute consultations are $120.

The provision of Chinese herbs may incur additional costs.
