IVF acupuncture at our Bondi Junction clinic
Our IVF acupuncture is carried out in association with a Monash IVF in Bondi Junction, which allows us to accurately track your ovulation time for the best results. Our IVF acupuncture in Bondi can increase responsiveness to fertility medication. This is done by relaxing and calming you during treatment, improving blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, and helping to minimise the side effects of drugs.
Treatments vary from person to person, with our team taking into consideration your age, number of failed IVF cycles, hormonal balance, ovarian reserve, number of years trying to conceive and general state of your health. For personalised information, please feel free to reach out to Eastern Therapies or book an appointment.
