Why Fertility Acupuncture?

Fertility acupuncture has many potential benefits before/during/after fertility treatment. Acupuncture may assist in unblocking stasis, regulating/promoting healthy blood flow, restoring harmony and balance on a mental-emotional level and helping to resolve lingering imbalances that may impede the body from reaching its fullest fertile potential. At IHR we deliver a level of care that is extraordinary.  Our team of Fertility Experts is here to support you every step of the way. We look forward to working with you!

The Defining Principles of Integrative Medicine

  • Our patients and practitioners are partners in the healing process.
  • All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.
  • Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be used whenever possible.
  • Good medicine is based on good science. It is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.

Appointment Times

Dr. Cohen and his staff were a complete blessing to our family. We just welcomed our identical twin girls this past month, and we owe it all to Dr. Cohen and the staff at IHR.


After being devastated from 2 miscarriages at a previous clinic I switched to Dr. TK. I became pregnant on my first round of IVF with him and have 6 frozen embryos.


I am so glad my OB doctor recommended IHR to anyone with infertility issues or concerns.


At IHR, the nurses and ultrasounds techs and lab techs all knew me by name... I just felt like everyone there was really rooting for me.


After more than two years of trying without success, we pursued fertility treatment with Dr. Cohen.


I'm writing this review as my infant daughter naps nearby, which would not have been possible without Dr. Tur-Kaspa and the team at IHR.


I immediately felt like he was addressing ME and MY needs, as opposed to having a protocol that may have worked for the massess.


From the very beginning, we felt strongly supported and received the very best personalized care.


It can be overwhelming but I never felt any discomfort from any procedure I had done there and I knew each was getting us closer to our goal of becoming parents.


After having no luck on our own, a friend highly recommended that we go to IHR. I am happy to say that I am currently pregnant with my first child! I do not have enough kind words to say. Everyone at IHR was wonderful.
