“My a-ha moment came in the realization that I had to put some of my therapeutic ego aside and consider adding other therapies into her wellness mix. I knew she required nutrition counselling, relaxation/energy work and a structure to give her a sense of control.”

The Why of What We Do – Ann’s Story

Clinic Director – Dr.Ann Zee, BComm., RTCM,
FABORM (Fellow of America Oriental Reproductive Medicine)

A few years ago, I remember treating a long time patient with Acupuncture and then suddenly having one of those “a-ha” moments. I really enjoyed this woman’s company as she was strong and intelligent and had forged her own niche in life.

We had spent many months together, sharing tears and angst throughout her journey and it would devastate me when she would tell me her pregnancy tests were negative. Both of our anxieties grew.

My a-ha moment came in the realization that I had to put some of my therapeutic ego aside and consider adding other therapies into her wellness mix. I knew she required nutrition counselling, relaxation/energy work and a structure to give her a sense of control.

I began researching different therapies and talking with other people in the healing field. I referred her to a few trusted therapists and made some lifestyle suggestions. As beneficial as it was for her, it was frustrating for me because the timely communication I needed for my progress notes/monitoring, was challenging.

Hey, why don’t I open up a place where everyone is working under the same roof and the communication is centralized? The Holistic Institute of Health & Fertility was born!

Our Promise

Our goal is to help you to feel better and do everything possible to help you achieve your fertility goals. We can promise you that you will feel physically stronger and more balanced emotionally with our treatments.


Where Are You on Your Healing Journey?

This decision is simply based on where you think you are in your healing journey. My experience of speaking with hundreds of women/couples over the years is that people fall into 3 groups depending think you are in your healing journey…

Client #1 -Interested Natural Therapies to Promote Health and Fertility

The first group are people who have been trying for about a year, have done some research about fertility and acupuncture or have a friend who tried acupuncture with success. They are a bit skeptical of alternative therapies and feel as though they have other areas of their lives under control.

What We Offer: You decide on a combination of treatments that fit your schedule. Typically, people just work with Acupuncture and herbals.

 


 Client #2 – Wanting to Increase Conception Success Rate of IVF/IUI treatment

The second group are already working with Western Medicine and are preparing for assisted reproductive treatments, either a few rounds of hormone-related drugs, IUI or IVF. They have found, either through research or friend’s experiences, that acupuncture may increase their chances of conception.

Whether you are 3 months or 2 weeks away from your IVF/IUI transfer, we will support you throughout the process. We understand the physical, mental and emotional stress ART (assisted reproductive technique) procedures bring.

What We Offer: We start with Acupuncture to increase blood and circulation to your uterus and to help balance your hormones and mitigate the side effects of Clomid and other drugs. Then we may integrate the relaxing benefits of Massage/ Reiki/ Craniosacral treatments during key times during the ART process.


Client #3 – Have Been Trying to Get Pregnant and Wanting a Structured Plan

The third group have been trying for more than a year, are over 33 years old, are finding they need a structured plan and are now open to trying other things because what they have been doing has not been working.
