Navigating the journey of infertility can be a complicated, stressful time. Recognizing the impact this process has on both the mind and body, GENESIS Fertility began working with Slope Wellness in 2013 to offer alternative and natural approaches for fertility support and overall well-being for their patients.
For patient convenience Slope Wellness provides acupuncture treatments for pre & post embryo transfer on-site at the GENESIS facility on the day of embryo transfer, as well as acupuncture treatments for fertility through all stages of this journey at their office in Park Slope, Brooklyn (conveniently located just 2 doors down from the GENESIS Park Slope office). Slope Wellness also offers a full spectrum of holistic services, many of which complement and enhance fertility treatments.
Call Slope Wellness at 718-415-0738 for more information.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture have been practiced for thousands of years with proven success on a wide range of health conditions, including infertility. Recent studies show an increase in pregnancy and live birth rates when acupuncture is used in conjunction with IVF and other assisted reproductive technology techniques. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treat the whole person, helping to balance the body and improve overall well being. Benefits of acupuncture for fertility include but are not limited to: stress reduction, improved blood flow to uterus and ovaries, thickening and improving the uterine lining, improved egg quality, reduction of blockages such as fibroids, cysts and polyps, treatment of PCOS; and in men, improve sperm count, motility and morphology.
Our licensed and experienced practitioners understand that it takes a team of people to provide care during this delicate process and will work closely with the doctors and staff at GENESIS to ensure the highest quality of care. Acupuncturist and Slope Wellness owner, Jeffrey Weidmann has over 15 years of experience successfully treating fertility patients. He trained in The Berkley Method for Reproductive Wellness, an approach which successfully integrates ancient and modern medicine. This approach guides our team of acupuncturists in their integrative treatment methods. We provide our patients with the care, time and hands on attention they need while going through this often physically and emotionally demanding process. All acupuncture patients receive an in depth consultation and comprehensive treatment plan that will be unique to their specific case and conditions.
At Slope Wellness we offer both private acupuncture and community acupuncture – a semi-private, discounted service for those without insurance coverage or looking for a more affordable option. Additionally, we accept most insurance plans and flex spending. Acupuncture services are available and recommended at any stage of your fertility process and for both women and men.
