On-site Acupuncture, Stress, Fertility and IVF Embryo Transfer

California IVF: Davis Fertility Center now provides expanded on-site access to acupuncture services from the Acupuncture Fertility Specialists, based in Sacramento and Roseville.
Safe and convenient, Dr. David Cherry, O.M.D., L.Ac. and Jennifer Horton, L.Ac., MSTCM coordinate their appointments to provide the maximum benefit to patients undergoing IVF or other fertility treatments.
Regular appointments at the Acupuncture Fertility Specialists office help relieve the stress of taking fertility medications and procedures like egg retrieval and build up to on-site sessions before and after embryo transfer.
By having acupuncture available on-site during embryo transfer days, California IVF hopes to save patients the hassle of driving to additional appointments, reduce overall stress, and possibly improve the chances of implantation and pregnancy.
While the scientific benefits of combining fertility treatment and acupuncture are still being studied, many people are convinced of the positive effects. Many patients report lower stress-levels and believe these combined treatments helped them get pregnant.
California IVF proudly offers this on-site service to provide a comprehensive and stress-reducing approach to fertility treatment for its patients in the greater Sacramento and Northern California area including the San Francisco Bay Area, Stockton and Modesto.
