Holistic Treatment and Fertility
Research continues to reveal that a person’s state of mind and stress level has an impact on their health. Today, there is growing evidence that complementary therapies can improve one’s overall feelings of well-being and may even increase the opportunity for a successful pregnancy outcome when used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
Pulling Down the Moon practitioners specialize in treating women’s health, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), infertility, and pregnancy. And, they have worked in conjunction with the medical doctors at Fertility Centers of Illinois for more than 10 years.
Acupuncture for Fertility and IVF – Pulling Down the Moon Licensed Acupuncturists specialize in the treatment of infertility and can provide safe, skilled treatment in seamless support of your medical fertility program.
Yoga for Fertility – A recent joint study conducted by Pulling Down the Moon and Fertility Centers of Illinois found that Pulling Down the Moon’s Yoga for Fertility program reduced anxiety in fertility patients by 20%.
