How Does It Work

My’chell has been successfully treating infertility for many years. My’chell’s compassionate, nurturing nature makes it easy to see why she connects with her patients. She is their cheerleader and their advocate. The way that acupuncture works within your body and for your spirit can allow you to cross the line from infertile to fertile.

The needles are used to stimulate certain key “energy points” believed to regulate spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical balance. And, for many women, it’s often just what the doctor ordered.

Medical experts believe that this ancient therapy from China, which involves placing numerous thin needles at certain points in the body, can help improve fertility in both men and women.​ Needles are placed in prescribed areas, then once the needles are in place, no pain is felt and patients usually enter a state of deep relaxation.

Acupuncture works because it helps a woman’s body function more efficiently. Acupuncture alone is often the bridge needed to become pregnant. Studies show that about 50% of women will become pregnant with the help of acupuncture alone.

Acupuncture also works beautifully along with IVF by making your body more receptive and fertile. My’chell happily works with her patients and their doctors to create a team. Her ultimate goal is to help her patients achieve their dream of a new baby.
