workup of every infertile couple. Western medicine has very little means to improve sperm quality and
quantity, and management of male infertility is in most cases unsatisfactory.

Scientific studies have shown that acupuncture and Chinese medicine Improve sperm count, motility,
morphology and reduce sperm DNA fragmentation.

percentage of men a significant improvement in sperm count, morphology, motility and liquefaction. Chinese
Medicine has been used for hundreds of years to correct the imbalances causing infertility.

The power of Chinese medicine is in a
personalized treatment. A comprehensive consultation and assessment is needed to find out what your
under pattern condition is and what acu-points to select and what herbs to use to make a customized
treatment plan which will works more effectively and quickly.
