Dear Friends,

As one of the top Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Centers in District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland areas, we have long time experience of incorporating Acupuncture, Moxa, Chinese Herbology and body work together to enhance your health wellness as well as to improve your fertility situations of having baby. With strong academic connections with Traditional Chinese Medicine hospitals inside China, we have developed our modality and procedures in treating patients with different kinds of conditions within the scope of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We welcome difficult cases. For those reasons—and a record of successful results—we continue to be one of the most respected wellness and fertility centers of complementary and alternative medicine.

When you partner with us, you have access to a comprehensive range of wellness and fertility services, from diagnosis to the treatment with proven techniques that Chinese Medicine can offer. Our patients come by self referral, friend's referral or referrals of MDs; our patients may choose 100% Chinese medicine, nature cycle or standard IVF and IUI combined with traditional Chinese medicine; some of our patients have chosen local IVF centers including Shady Grove, Columbia, GW associates, Dominion, GIVF, etc. Whatever your approach is, we understand your wellness need and we strive hard to provide compassionate care and treatment environment to realize your goal of living the fullest.

For more than three thousand years before modern medicine started, Acupuncture/Moxa/Herbs/Body Work was the main stream medical modality for Chinese people's wellness. Acupuncture relies on the painless but strategic placement of tiny needles into a "grid-like" pattern that spans the body, from head to toe. The needles are used to stimulate certain key "energy points" believed to regulate spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical balance. Chinese Herbs includes herbs effective for multiple diseases and are mostly responsible for maintaining and restoring the body balance. Most of herbs have no unfavorable side-effects.

"It can allow you to cross the line from infertile to fertile by helping your body function more efficiently, which in turn allows other, more modern reproductive treatments, like IVF, to also work more efficiently," says James Dillard, MD, assistant clinical professor, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and clinical adviser to Columbia's Rosenthal Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

With an atmosphere that is aesthetically pleasing and sensitive to patient needs, our four treatment rooms provide individual privacy and comfort while receiving holistic treatment.

Our staff of acupuncturists and administrators are well-known for their dedicated services to the mission of helping people recover, or become parents, and also for the compassion and care with which the help is provided.

Our Herbs

Journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine, women receiving Chinese herbal medicine treatments were more likely to get pregnant within a four-month period than those receiving conventional Western medical fertility drug treatment or IVF. The findings also suggested that the quality of the menstrual cycle - a key component in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis -- appears to be crucial to the successful treatment of female infertility. Infertility is generally defined as an inability to conceive after a year or more of regular sexual activity without using birth control.

There is a long recorded history of Chinese herbs being used in the treatment of infertility. In fact, records indicating herbal treatment of infertility and miscarriage date back to 200 A.D., including mention of formulas that are still used for those same purposes today.

Our herbs selection has considered genuine, safe, quality. The herbs daily price that we put in our formula is very economical compared with other place. Especially for those taking acupuncture in our place.
