Has your IVF Specialist suggested IVF Acupuncture to enhance your IVF treatments?

IVF is an exciting time as you go through the steps of treatment. Though it can be stressful, time consuming and financially straining. IVF acupuncture is often the go-to support

Dr Clancy Street – Acupuncturist, uses Acupuncture and Chinese medicine to assist her clients to feel more relaxed during their IVF treatment.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been found to improve chances of conception when used with IVF treatment.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine may:

Having 20 years of clinical experience with IVF and fertility care, Dr Clancy Street approaches IVF acupuncture treatments in a gentle, compassionate and holistic way.
