You’re probably here because you haven’t been able to reach your goal of growing your family. Maybe your doctor gave you a diagnosis of unexplained infertility, advanced maternal age, or abnormal semen parameters. Maybe you’re considering using a sperm or egg donor or even embryo donation. Or perhaps you’ve already utilized Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) such as Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) without success and are beginning to wonder if you can make your dream of being a parent come true.

While trying to conceive there are many challenges. Doctors appointments require you to take time off from work. It can become difficult to attend family functions where kids are present and well-intentioned family members may ask you “When are y’all having kids?” Going to baby showers and logging into Facebook become reminders that you’re having trouble conceiving. And there’s the financial strain that comes with fertility testing and medications, IUIs, and IVF cycles. And during this time it may seem that everyone around you is “easily” getting pregnant. Difficulty conceiving affects you mentally, emotionally, financially, and physically. You may begin to feel shame, anger, resentment, confusion, and frustration during your fertility journey… but you are not alone.

I’ve worked with hundreds of couples over the years that started out in a place similar to where you are now. Some had a clear infertility diagnosis and Western treatment plan, and others were given the frustrating diagnosis of “unexplained infertility” and were unsure what their next step(s) should be. However, one thing they all had in common was wanting a practitioner that would listen to them and create a plan for them, keeping in mind that they are a whole person, not just a fertility diagnosis.

If you’re here and looking for a reproductive acupuncturist that will listen, guide, and support you on your fertility journey then you’re in the right place.

Over the years I’ve treated many reproductive health concerns and have provided support for the following conditions:

  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), menstrual cycle irregularities, and anovulation
  • Advanced maternal age, Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) and Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)
  • History of miscarriage or Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL)
  • Fertility and IUI/IVF Preparation
  • Auto-immune issues and thyroid irregularities
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
  • Abnormal semen parameters (low count or volume, poor morphology or motility)
  • PMS & Painful Periods
  • Menopause
  • Endometriosis
  • Unexplained Infertility
  • Pregnancy Morning Sickness
  • Pregnancy Aches and Pains
  • Pregnancy Support and Labor Preparation

My job is to evaluate your current health and fertility situation to create a personalized fertility plan. The goal of our work together will be to rebalance your hormones, improve your overall health, and your fertility. We can do this by supporting your body with proper nutrition through food and supplements, stress reduction techniques, and acupuncture. Some side benefits you may experience include improved digestion, more restful sleep, and increased energy – all of which are a great foundation for a healthy conception and pregnancy!

Happy, healthy, energy

Acupuncture for non-fertility issues

Although I specialize in fertility, as a reproductive acupuncturist I treat all conditions related to hormonal imbalances. This includes:

  • Women experiencing menopausal symptoms
  • Women and young girls that suffer from PMS, painful periods, and irregular cycles
  • Weight loss goals (rebalancing your hormones can help you reach your weight loss goals)
  • Low libido (in men and women)
  • Low testosterone
  • Couples looking to improve their health and fertility before actively trying to conceive
  • Or any person with the fertility conditions listed above that are not actively trying to conceive (PCOS, thyroid irregularities, endometriosis, etc.)

If you have another health concern not listed above and are curious if acupuncture can help, please check our Services Page to read more about acupuncture or find my contact information here.

See what folks are saying about acupuncture with Misty Reed!

I have been seeing Misty Reed for acupuncture treatment and coaching for infertility. She is amazing. She genuinely cares and answers any questions I have had. She takes the time to listen and explains what is going on. I always look forward to my visits with Misty. She’s not only great with her treatment, but also as a friend. This was so important to me while going through the emotional ups and downs of infertility. I am now sixteen weeks pregnant. I am so grateful to have had Misty’s help in achieving this pregnancy!

Extremely supportive during infertility
When I first met Misty Reed I was in the process of going through my 2nd IVF cycle. During that meeting we went through my entire history and she was very thorough in her approach. After I left I felt like she had a really good understanding of my situation and immediately came up with a plan for me. One thing I really like about working with her was that even when she didn’t know the answer to something she would research my question and even consult with other colleagues regarding my question and always come back to me with her findings. She really made an effort to connect with me which made me feel so much more at ease through the entire process.   I would recommend working with her to any woman who is struggling with fertility issues.

About Misty Reed, L.Ac.

In high school and college, I suffered greatly from migraines, allergies, and pain from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). After discovering that Western medicine couldn’t treat the root cause of these issues, I turned to acupuncture, Chinese medicine (herbs), dietary and lifestyle changes, yoga, and massage. All of these things greatly helped, but I was amazed at how effective acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine was at improving my overall health.

During this time I was pursuing a B.S. in Nutrition at The University of Texas at Austin and decided I would help people by completing post-graduate work in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. I naturally gravitated towards women’s health and realized I could provide help and support to women, especially those trying to conceive.
