Acupuncture for Fertility at The Center of Balance
My approach to treating fertility issues is to conduct a thorough diagnostic inquiry.

Using diagnostic testing, CF charting and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnostic methods I can create a well-rounded clinical treatment plan, specifically designed to address your needs. My fertility program incorporates acupuncture, supplement and herbal protocols, and fertility nutrition counseling to give you the best chance possible to improve your fertility and become pregnant naturally.

Whether you are in the middle of an IVF cycle and need some additional support or you are looking for an alternative to IVF, at the Center of Balance I can help you reach success in each of these situations.

fertility acupuncturistDr. Patricia Gilmartin

My name is Patricia Gilmartin I am a licensed Doctor of acupuncture in Rhode Island and board certified (NCCAOM) in both acupuncture and in the use and prescription of Chinese Herbal Medicine. I specialize in TCM treatment of infertility, Women’s Health and endocrine disorders. I am passionate about educating women, their partners and their families about improving and maintaining their health through natural methods.

In the sixteen years that I have been an acupuncturist in RI, treating fertility issues and women’s health, I have learned that the most successful treatment protocols incorporate TCM and Integrative Western Medical (IWM) methods. The impact your endocrine system has on your fertility and your reproductive system is undeniable; therefore, to effectively treat fertility issues the relationship of these systems needs to be understood and addressed.

I have been studying and working with herbal medicine since 1984. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University. I am an alumna of The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA where I trained and conducted my internship. I continue to study the latest methods in both IWM and TCM to understand and effectively treating fertility issues and women’s health.

If you are interested in making an appointment for an office visit or scheduling a phone appointment, I look forward to working with you to address your unique health issues and to help you feel empowered to reclaim your fertility and your health.
