Fertility Program at Cloud 9

Did you know… We have a Fertility Program at Cloud 9 Acupuncture?

We begin with a Couples Consultation to review a thorough medical history for both partners, including any work ups already done by our local fertility centers, Shady Grove Fertility Center or Johns Hopkins Fertility Center – both of which refer new patients to our practice because we specialize in chronic, complex cases.

Once we have completed the Couples Consultation we make a customized best recommendation for care based on our patient’s timeline and medical factors, like whether or not the couple will be trying to conceive naturally or they are already scheduled to begin the IVF process with Shady Grove or Johns Hopkins.

Our clinical director, Laura Parks, has 11 years of practice and has dedicated these 11 years to specializing in Fertility, studying with colleagues with twice as much clinical experience to design a Fertility Program that boasts over a 90% Success Rate in helping couples get pregnant and stay pregnant.

Sometimes couples do need intervention from a fertility center like Shady Grove, however, after the first couple of weeks of pregnancy, there is nothing else that a fertility center can offer to a fertility patient to prevent a miscarriage.

This is what is different about Cloud 9 Acupuncture. We offer a combination of innovative, advanced medical therapies to keep the endocrine system and hormones balanced, and keep the nervous system relaxed (and out of the “fight or flight” adrenaline rush), improve blood circulation to the uterus to nourish the beginning stages of pregnancy. Using ATP Resonance BioTherapy, O3 Regenerative Therapy, Direct Vitamin Injection Therapy, Acupuncture and Supplements we devise complete care plans. We also help treat morning sickness, headaches and migraines, pregnancy fatigue, and pains (like back pain, sciatica, shoulder pain) that often can not be addressed by medication during pregnancy, so natural alternatives like acupuncture are ideal.

Typically, we treat both partners to aid conception, and then focus on our Mom-To-Be exclusively during the entire pregnancy. The final trimester we help the body prepare for labor and delivery for a shorter, less intense labor and easier recovery, assist in flipping any Breech Baby presentation, and even provide labor induction acupuncture treatments if the OB/GYN doctor is recommending medical induction. We’ve done so many Breech Baby and Labor Induction treatments, we often get referrals for both services from a local hospital midwife practice.

At Cloud 9 we love helping to create miracles, helping couples have the baby they’ve been dreaming of. It’s what we live for!

Moxibustion and Dysmenorrhea

A study conducted by Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has determined that the use of moxibustion at specific days during a woman’s menstrual cycle can decrease pain associated with menstruation. Dysmenorrhea or painful menstruation is a big problem for many women. This study used moxibustion, an accessory modality of TCM, to treat the pain associated with menstruation. The study and its systematic review showed moxibustion treatments were more effective at relieving pain only when the moxibustion began prior to the onset of actual menstruation. This is also the theory behind Traditional Chinese Medicine, that it should be used as preventive care. The efficacy of using moxibustion during the premenstrual time period holds great promise for those who are debilitated by dysmenorrhea. continue reading »
