Holistic Approach to Fertility
Acupuncture, Yoga, Nutrition and Massage for Fertility
For more than a decade, Shady Grove Fertility Center has taken a holistic approach toward patient care, becoming one of the first fertility centers in the United States to integrate complementary medicine services, including acupuncture, yoga and massage therapy, to help patients cope with the emotional aspects of infertility.
Infertility has long been recognized as a stressful situation for couples. Research continues to reveal that a person’s state of mind and stress level has an impact on their health. Today, there is growing recognition that complementary therapies – such as acupuncture, yoga, nutrition and massage – can improve ones overall feelings of well-being and may even increase the opportunity for a successful outcome when used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
To help our patients who desire to utilize complementary medicine during their treatment, Shady Grove Fertility has partnered with Pulling Down the Moon – a holistic treatment center specializing in complementary therapy services. Pulling Down the Moon at Shady Grove is located on the second floor of Shady Grove Fertility's Rockville Office, and provides acupuncture, nutrition, massage and yoga services that complement your medical fertility treatment
Pulling Down the Moon works in partnership with your Shady Grove Fertility physician in treating the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Their services do not replace advanced reproductive technology, but rather supports both patient and health care provider during this stressful and emotional time. PDtM’s experienced holistic practitioners specialize in fertility therapies and have been trained by medical infertility specialists to help them blend their specialties in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
