Functional Medicine

There are certain complimentary services which we believe can assist you in navigating your road to fertility. These include both acupuncture and massage.


Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese Medicine that uses very thin needles to stimulate the body’s meridians, thereby channeling energy. Depending upon where the needles are placed they can result in reducing stress, increasing or decreasing hormone levels and stimulate blood flow to certain parts of the body, such as the pelvis, At Oasis Fertility we believe that acupuncture can assist patients, particularly with their stress level, when undergoing fertility treatment. and has been shown in some trials to significantly improve the results after fertility treatment.

Massage
Massage is another service which we believe can assist you while undergoing fertility treatment. Unfortunately, we know that stress can interfere with getting pregnant. It is well recognized that many individuals and couples suffer from stress while undergoing fertility treatment which is quite natural. Massage will help relax the body and ease emotional tension thereby reducing stress levels and have shown beneficial effects on fertility.
