Fertility Quan Yun

Care Planning

We offer personalized care and the frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Some people, especially with acute issues, experience dramatic relief in the first treatment.

For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, one to two treatments per week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required, often eight to ten visits in total.

Together we will develop an individualized treatment plan that includes a visit schedule during your initial visit.


For enhancing your fertility both naturally and in conjunction with conventional fertility treatments a weekly course of treatment for three to six months is often recommended.

In preparation for IVF biweekly treatments for two months leading up to the retrieval is the standard of care. On the day of the transfer we strongly encourage acupuncture treatments before and after your transfer.

Pregnancy and Women's Health


To support your healthy pregnancy we recommend weekly treatments in the first trimester to prevent miscarriage, support the growth of the placenta and embryo and the building of your blood stores and to treat early pregnancy symptoms.

In the second and third trimesters we recommend bi monthly treatment for singletons and weekly treatment for twins. This is the time when we can work deeply to send healthy blood and qi to your growing baby to support development.

Starting at week 36, we recommend weekly treatments to prepare for a healthy delivery and strengthen your blood and energy stores for postpartum.

  • I can't say enough good things about Amy.  I saw her when my partner and I were trying to conceive our second child and throughout my pregnancy.  She was thorough, thoughtful, and compassionate.  Her care really helped ease both the physical and emotional challenges of conception and pregnancy.

  • A dear friend who happens to be an Emergency Doctor led me straight away to Amy when I told her I was looking for a fertility acupuncturist. The minute I met Amy I knew I met a very special person and healer. I highly recommend Amy and feel blessed and secure knowing she is by my side on my fertility journey.

  • I’ve been having chronic back and wrist pains for about seven years now. The acute pain in my wrist and the ongoing back issues became too much for me.  Alison treated me, and within 2 visits the pain had subsided. After a few more visits, I couldn’t believe the difference it made!

  • My patient who I referred to Alison began to weep when she described her experience of acupuncture with Alison to me. The relief was so tangible that any doubt she had in her mind about the efficacy of the medicine was gone.
