Fertility Support

Chinese Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture for Fertility Support (Sydney – Surry Hills)

Your body is constantly changing and adapting to the world around and within you, so making improvements to fertility with an aim to assist or replace your infertility treatment is always a possibility.

Your body is always trying to work with you to support your health and protect future generations. If something has gone awry, then fertility will become sub-optimal.

More and more people are suffering from fertility issues, often feeling confused, overwhelmed, and lost with how to move forward. Well, we are here to help.

Did you know that 1 in 6 couples will experience fertility issues at some stage in their lives? And it really does take two to tango as fertility issues can be due to both partners.

This is why, at tonika health, we are so passionate about supporting you to not only conceive a healthy baby but also to understand the underlying root cause(s) that may be a barrier to conception.

We are extremely fortunate to have Peter, our acupuncturist, who has a special interest in fertility issues including:

  • Female factors – endometriosis, PCOS, hormonal imbalance
  • Male factors – poor sperm quality, low libido/erectile dysfunction
  • Genetic factors – MTHFR, hemochromatosis, methylation issues
  • Nutritional and dietary factors
  • Lifestyle factors – stress and sleep are key

Fertility issues can be incredibly emotional for both partners. Feelings of guilt, denial, anger, confusion and frustration are common. Peter’s approach supports couples in not only processing emotions that may arise, but also in proving a deep understanding of your body and the treatment steps necessary. With education and knowledge, you can feel empowered that you once again have control over your health and fertility.

Our acupuncturist, Peter, can provide support at any stage of your fertility journey:

  • Preconception care and fertility assessments
  • IVF and assisted reproductive technology
  • Miscarriage support
  • Pregnancy and labour
  • Postpartum and breastfeeding
