CT Acupuncture in RMA's Integrated Fertility Wellness Program
Acupuncture is part of RMACT’s Integrated Fertility and Wellness Program, which empowers fertility patients to take control of their fertility treatment through mind-body services such yoga, nutrition counseling, therapy and support groups. When incorporated into a patient’s infertility treatment plan, acupuncture has been shown to have physical and emotional benefits. It can help regulate menstrual cycles, improve blood flow to the pelvic area and uterine lining, and reduce stress and anxiety issues such as insomnia and headaches. RMACT provides two types of acupuncture – traditional and laser – to give patients the best available options.
“Elaine is a great addition to our team, and our patients will benefit from her extensive experience with fertility treatment,” says Dr. Mark Leondires, medical director of RMACT. “We have found, both anecdotally and through our own clinical study, that our patients benefit from having acupuncture onsite at our offices. Patients have shared with us that it improves their experience in all aspects of fertility therapy. We are thrilled to be the first fertility practice to offer acupuncture to Eastern Fairfield County.”
