We specialize in working with women and couples who are having trouble conceiving or have been diagnosed with conditions affecting their reproductive health.
In person, we use fertility coaching, acupuncture, supplementation and lifestyle recommendations to help families grow, whether naturally or in conjunction with IUI or IVF procedures.

Online, we provide telehealth services that include integrative fertility support and coaching for those that are not local to the San Diego area.

We also offer cosmetic acupuncture, microneedling and nano-needling as non-toxic alternatives to botox to keep that gorgeous glow while TTC.
