Fertility & IVF Support
Acubalance is famously known for our multidisciplinary approach for helping you to reach your peak fertility potential whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through IVF.
We offer IVF Acupuncture and laser acupuncture onsite at the Olive fertility Clinic on IVF transfer day in Vancouver, British Columbia. We have been leaders in integrative fertility care, and Acubalance’s clinical director, Dr Lorne Brown, continues to pioneer using laser (LLLT) & photobiomodulation for fertility to support optimal egg quality and uterine lining receptivity.
Acubalance's onsite laser acupuncture treatment protocol on IVF transfer day for Comprehensive Chromosome Screened (CCS/PGT-A) embryos had a higher pregnancy rate and lower miscarriage rate than women that did not receive Acubalance treatments on site at Olive Fertility.
Our approach is about "Nourishing the Soil Before You Plant the Seed to help you maximize your fertility. Watch the short video clips below to learn how you can use the next 100 days leading up to conception, whether natural or with IVF, to reach your peak fertility potential.
