Fertility Support

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

It seems that nowadays more and more people are suffering from fertility issues, leaving them feeling confused, overwhelmed, and lost with how to move forward. No matter your circumstances, or where you are on your fertility journey, 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.

Chinese medicine has a long history of assisting in the care of both female and male reproductive health and fertility using a variety of methods. These methods include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, dietary therapy and lifestyle advice. Thus, this is not a new phenomenon. Our bodies are constantly changing and adapting to the world around us to ensure the health and protections of future generations. If something has gone awry, then fertility will become sub-optimal. In our current society, there are many factors that may contribute to our experience of compromised fertility, including sleep disturbances, diet irregularities, hormonal imbalances, constitutional factors, etc. During a Chinese medicine appointment, we will therefore conduct a thorough consultation before your treatment to ensure we have a comprehensive understanding of your specific case.


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 and Veronika, who have 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


Our acupuncturists, Peter and Veronika, 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


Fertility issues can be incredibly emotional for both partners. Feelings of guilt, denial, anger, confusion and frustration are common. Our 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.

If you have any further questions, we recommend booking a free introductory call with either Peter or Veronika.
