A large systematic review of past studies found that acupuncture increased the odds of clinical pregnancy by 65% compared with the control groups.
Weekly acupuncture treatments can effectively work with your reproductive system and hormones to impact your physiology in real time.
Treatment allows us to deeply influence egg quality, uterine health, blood circulation and hormonal signaling in a way no other therapy can.
Acupuncture increases blood flow and circulation to the ovaries and uterus. Improved blood circulation provides a better environment for the development and implantation of an embryo.
MRI reveals that acupuncture prompts observable changes in the brain, the center of your hormone system. Acupuncture helps regulate hormones such as FSH, LH, and cortisol.
Acupuncture reduces inflammation and increases uterine lining receptivity, while also regulating the body's immune and stress response.

"I am forever grateful to Ghoncheh and Aphrodite for creating an atmosphere in which I was able to feel so supported in my efforts to get pregnant after an ectopic pregnancy.
I found out two months into regular treatments with Ghoncheh that I was pregnant, and I truly think there is no way it would have happened without her and the team at Aphrodite. Being able to have a space in which it doesn't feel like constant pressure to compare yourself to someone else and their journey is a massive relief in any pregnancy experience. I highly recommend working with Ghoncheh and am so glad that I chose to do so myself."
- Isabella G.
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost 3 years with unexplained infertility. A friend highly recommended Aphrodite to me and I couldn’t be happier. This team goes way beyond just acupuncture. I have gotten more answers and insight into what might be going on from them than I have from my fertility clinic.
If I could give the Aphrodite team 1000 starts I would.
I traveled from another state to see her and now have a friend doing the same. Long story short - I had a failed embryo transfer and a second surgery to remove endometriosis and was feeling hopeless. I started flying in to see Emily every week before another embryo transfer. I believe her acupuncture treatment, positive attitude, advice (hot water bottle, red light, nutrition recommendations, exercise, and more), and her answering all my questions and keeping me in a good headspace led me to a positive pregnancy test! I will continue to see her and keep recommending her to all of my friends who are on fertility journeys.
Emily has changed my life.
My husband and I were trying to get pregnant for five years. I ended up having to go through IVF, but I don’t think we would have gotten pregnant without the support of Aphrodite Fertility. Emily was with me every step of the way, not only supporting with all fertility questions but helping me mentally cope with the ups and downs of the long infertility journey. I LOVE them! And, I will be forever grateful for their patience, kindness, and expertise.
I cannot even begin to tell you how incredible these women are!
