Fertility Staff

Here at Integrative Wellness of Stow, MA, we believe that the health of both parents is the most important factor in successful conception, a successful pregnancy, a healthy baby, and a happy postpartum life. We bring together the reproductive and perinatal expertise of each of our three practitioners to support you in building your family.

We started our practice having seen too many women go through the expense and emotion of in vitro fertilization and other attempts to conceive without achieving their desired result — a baby. We can help. We offer our extensive experience with reproductive and perinatal care using acupuncture, shiatsu, Mayan Abdominal Massage, Chinese herbal medicine, and nutrition. to improve your fertility and perinatal health.
