The Importance of Body, Mind and Spirit

The journey of trying to have a child can be daunting, stressful and challenging. Today there is greater usage of advanced reproductive technologies (ART) than ever before. More women are deciding to have children later in their life. If you are looking to conceive, now is the time to do everything you can to cultivate your fertility potential. 

At the Tao of Wellness, we employ a comprehensive fertility enhancement program to help women prepare their body, mind and spirit for pregnancy. This goes beyond acupuncture, Chinese medicinal herbs, and nutrition. We focus on empowering women to take charge of their fertility. 

Two of the services we offer are Fertility Tuina and Fertility Chi Gong. 

TUINA (pronounced “tway-nah”) is a form of massage that removes blockages along the meridians of the body and stimulates the healthy flow of chi (vital energy), lymph and blood.

FERTILITY TUINA sessions are designed to optimize fertility by: a) stimulating acupoints and meridians that correspond to the reproductive system, b) promoting deep relaxation, and c) improving circulation. 

The second type of fertility enhancement support we recommend is FERTILITY CHI GONG. Chi Gong movements help calm the nervous system, balance hormones, and relieve stress to enhance fertility. This gentle form of exercise is very beneficial for most everyone, especially for a woman trying to conceive. It increases endocrine function and stimulates endocrine glands. Since these glands are essential for secreting hormones such as progesterone and estrogen, they play a key role in reproductive functions. 

Even if you are using advanced reproductive technologies such as IVF, Fertility Chi Gong movements are gentle and safe enough to strengthen your body and relax your spirit.  

The energy that you bring to your goal and the intention that you bring to your journey to have a child are of utmost impor-tance. Speak with your Tao of Wellness team members to see how you can use the relaxing techniques of Fertility Tuina and Chi Gong to boost your fertility.
