The irony.

So many of us spend much of our lives trying not to get pregnant, only to discover that when we are ready, it is not so easy.

Frustration and sometimes panic sets in. People end up running from doctor to doctor, trying drugs and procedures that are expensive and uncomfortable. The process can seriously drain their financial and emotional resources. Often, they end up sad, disillusioned, and sometimes with a deeply strained marriage.

Lara Rosenthal Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs offers a safe, highly effective, and affordable program of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and lifestyle guidance for couples that are trying to conceive.

The method maximizes the couple's overall chances of conceiving naturally, is comfortable and relaxing, and improves their overall sense of wellbeing in the process. It is also an excellent complement to those who are preparing for or in the process of medical fertility treatment such as Clomid, IUI, IVF, oocyte donation, or egg freezing.
