It is possible that complementary modalities decrease the negative effect that stress hormones - the chemical messengers that cause the "fight or flight" response - have on our bodies. During times of prolonged stress, which can occur for some patients undergoing infertility treatment, stress hormones may be present in the body for long periods of time and may cause unwanted effects such as decreased blood flow to non-essential organs like the uterus. In turn decreased blood flow may negatively affect pregnancy rates. Perhaps one day high-tech modern medicine will fully understand the salutary effect on the body of these low-tech ancient treatments, but for now we appreciate and support their role in promoting health.
The Conceptions IVF take-home baby rate continues to increase at the same time as more patients employ alternative therapies. Additionally many of our patients who choose complementary modalities also report increased self-esteem and a more positive outlook on life. Conceptions is pleased to offer the following complementary healing modalities to traditional medical therapies. As alternative therapies become more mainstream, some insurance companies cover some of these services. Check with your insurance carrier for benefits.

Jennifer guides her students through poses that promote ovarian health, circulation of the reproductive organs, spine health (related to fertility) and relaxation of the uterus. All are taught with great care as well as with attention to breath awareness.
