Are you having difficulty getting pregnant?


Acupuncture can help you! A healthy lifestyle coupled with acupuncture treatments can promote fertility in both males and females. Recently, acupuncture methods for infertility have gained notoriety and have been featured stories in the news. Studies conducted combining acupuncture treatments with in vitro fertilization (IVF) have shown close to a 50% increase in pregnancy rates. Such studies prove that an age-old technique can enhance the results of today’s techniques. Acupuncture treatments


  • Decrease stress and anxiety associated with advanced fertility treatments
  • Increase blood flow to the uterus
  • Decrease uterine contractions after embryo transfer
  • Enhance implantation of the embryo
  • Increase sperm counts and motility


While going through the course of several fertility treatment attempts, we used acupuncture treatments in conjunction with ART (assisted reproductive techniques). And our first attempt at IVF worked! We will never forget how our acupuncture treatments helped make our dream of pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby come true!

Acupuncture helps improve the reproductive functions of both males and females, thereby promoting conception.


At the age of 33, I was told my eggs were nonexistent or of poor quality and that we would need an egg donor. After a second opinion, IVF was attempted for the first time. I began acupuncture treatments 6 weeks prior to the procedure. Although the IVF failed, I continued with my acupuncture treatments during the 7 months of waiting and testing. Preparing to attempt IVF again, we were told our chances were slim. 3 days later we found out I was pregnant – all on our own! We now have a beautiful 18 month old and are 10 weeks away from delivering number two. Thanks, Dr. Qin.

After conception occurs, acupuncture can be continued to aid labor and delivery.


My pregnancy was difficult during the last trimester, with added complications. Acupuncture treatments helped keep everything in check and made my first experience with labor and delivery tolerable and quick. –Mary, Palatine


Do you have hot flashes and night sweats? Are you struggling with “the change”?


Acupuncture can help you! Traditional Chinese Medicine theory views hot flashes as related to toxic heat in the Liver pathway. The Liver is responsible for maintaining the flow of Qi energy and Blood within the body. When energy gets stuck in one place or another along the energy channel, symptoms will occur: emotions are affected (mood swings, outbursts of short temper, depression), irregular menstrual bleeding, vaginal dryness, insomnia, and the feelings of waves of heat. Once the Qi energy is replenished with acupuncture treatments and dietary modifications, the toxic heat will dissipate and the intense hot flashes will not occur with such intensity and leave the woman feeling refreshed. With acupuncture treatments you can:


  • Restore hormonal function
  • Reduce hot flashes and night sweats
  • Promote good night’s sleep
  • Manage your mood swings
  • Increase vaginal moisture


Since I didn’t want to stay on HRT (hormone replacement therapy), a co-worker referred me to Dr. Qin. Changing my diet along with acupuncture treatments helped me sleep thru the night and has diminished my hot flashes. Life is more manageable!

Do fatigue and pain bother you?

Have you been told you have Fibromyalgia?


The good news is that acupuncture addresses the signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia. Acupuncture looks at the underlying source of the problem, it does not just soothe over the symptoms of the disease; it treats the roots of the problem! This disease commonly affects women between the ages of 20 and 50. A combination of diet, exercise, proper rest, and acupuncture treatments can help make life more bearable. Symptoms are relieved through acupuncture treatments with the use of needles placed in the tender spots as well as other parts of the body. These points help make the Qi energy flow more smoothly, thus breaking up any blockages that may be preventing the body from functioning properly. Acupuncture treatments:


  •  Restore normal activities
  • Decrease pain
  • Regulate sleep patterns
  • Reduce fatigue


After reading one of Dr. Qin’s articles in a newspaper, I made an appointment. The quality of my life was so degraded by the constant, near debilitating pain, and I needed relief soon! Within a few short weeks, I could touch myself without wincing. After a couple months I no longer cried while trying to manipulate my computer’s mouse. After 6 months, I forgotten I ever had fibromyalgia!

Are you aging quickly, and showing signs of it? Bothered by your wrinkles and lines?


Then cosmetic acupuncture is for you. Everyone wants to feel good and look good too, but few are willing to experience the expense, pain and potential side effects involved with surgical face-lifts and/or botox injections. Acupuncture is safe, virtually painless, and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. While facial acupuncture does not produce the dramatic results seen with cosmetic surgery, it will help the face look younger, healthier, and more radiant. Eight hundred years ago, this type of treatment was performed on the royal families of China. In recent years, patients who have suffered a stroke or an episode of Bell’s Palsy have been able to improve not only the motor muscle function of their face, but their facial appearance as well. Facial acupuncture works by making the Qi energy circulate through the face and the entire body. This relaxes the facial muscles and stimulates the cells to lay down new collagen fibers under the skin. Patients will find that cosmetic acupuncture:


  • Minimizes double chin
  • Firms the jowls
  • Reduces frown and laugh lines
  • Lessens bags under the eyes
  • Lifts droopy eyelids
  • Diminish facial puffiness
  • Better facial muscle tone


The facial acupuncture treatment is amazing! I noticed results instantly. Each treatment was like a mini face-lift. The muscles tightened dramatically and the results lasted for weeks. After the first treatment my kids said I looked 5 years younger.
