I love coming here! Dr. Swasti consistently answered all of my questions in a timely manner, provided a treatment tailored to my specific needs, and helped me to resolve my fertility struggles in just five weeks. Sylvia at the front desk was also very kind and helpful. She returned my calls promptly and really encouraged me throughout my treatments and in my pregnancy; both she and Dr. Swasti really made me feel at home during my visits. Thank you so much! I would highly recommend this office to anyone struggling with fertility.

I have been a patient of Dr. Swasti for 6 months. I highly recommend Dr. Swasti/Acupuncture Fertility Specialists to anyone trying to get pregnant. Dr. Swasti is highly skilled, knowledgeable and thorough in her care. She provides resources including relaxation/meditation techniques, diet recommendations and exercise advice to prepare her patients for a successful FET. I feel extremely relaxed in her presence and I know I’m in great hands during my treatments. Dr. Swasti even provides acupuncture treatments directly before and after her client’s fertilized embryo transfers at their clinic location (to further increase the outcome of a positive pregnancy). Dr. Swasti is a very caring and compassionate person who genuinely feels joy with each of her patient’s successful pregnancies. Her pregnancy success rate with her clients is incredibly high. I’m 4 months pregnant now! Her Team member Sylvia is also very helpful, warm and knowledgeable.

After struggling for many years to have a baby, my husband and I finally gave in and sought fertility assistance. We were advised that IVF would be our best bet. At our first appointment we were giving a folder with different resources, one being Acupuncture Fertility Specialists. With our diagnosis and the money we were about to spend this was a logical step to take to try to get the best possible outcome.

I will say this is one of the best decisions we made. The office is very inviting and Sylvia is so helpful with navigating the process. Swasti is the best! At my first appointment she walked me through the process in detail, gave me some homework and a great book to refer to. They have been a big part of my care team through this whole process! From pre-retrieval to transfer and now during my pregnancy. I am so thankful we found this office to help us walk this journey. Whether it’s been in preparation of some part of the IVF process or if I’m having any other ailments or just want to relax AFS has been there. I would recommend their services to anyone trying to get the best chance at conceiving.

I have had acupuncture in the past for back pain but I never even heard of doing acupuncture for fertility until I decided to move forward with IVF. The clinic where I was being treated gave me this big folder full of information to look through. There was information including research about how acupuncture can improve success rates with IVF. I thought wow these numbers were impressive but didn’t decide to try until I found out I only had one “fair quality” embryo that came back normal.  Devastated I decided to do everything in my power to optimize the success of this embryo. I decided to incorporate acupuncture and called Dr. Swasti. She came to my clinic the day of my FET and performed acupuncture before and after and the 50/50 shot my doctors gave me was successful. I have continued to go to Dr. Swasti throughout my pregnancy and am currently 29 weeks.  I love going to the clinic. Dr. Swasti is so warm and welcoming and I always feel so relaxed in her presence. I am hoping to use her talents to conceive baby #2 naturally!

This place is an amazing clinic. Starting in the front desk, you meet Sylvia who is the most helpful, sweet, and courteous welcoming lady. Sometimes you see James in the front desk, a very kind and helpful person as well, who never stops smiling at you.

My journey began when I started IVF treatment, and I got pregnant in my second cycle, so I had my son at 49 years old. Then, I thought I would get pregnant right away, but didn’t happen. So, I tried to get pregnant for a second time with IVF for several times and years without any luck until I met Dr. Swasti.

The first time I met her I knew she was the right doctor for me. I was very impressed by her knowledge, accuracy, and knowledge, accuracy, and details regarding what foods to eat, what to avoid and healthy diet plan habits. So, I followed exactly all of her advice and recommendations about intake of food and a healthy diet plan, and I finally got pregnant for a second time at 55 years old. YES!!!, after 6 failed IVF cycles, I got pregnant in my 7th IVF cycle. Now, I am 3 months pregnant,

I’m still in shock, but happier than ever.

I think, from all of the acupuncturists I’ve ever met during my journey for all these years, she is one of the most amazing, smart, caring, patient and knowledgeable doctors in the Chinese Medicine. I would definitely highly recommend her, and I would give her more stars if I could.

Swasti Shrestha is a great acupuncturist, and I wholeheartedly recommend her for a wide range of treatments.  I first started going to this practice in the early 90s with breast-feeding troubles, then later they cured my chronic bronchitis.  They have helped with post-surgery recovery and a range of other ailments.  The office does so much more than just help infertility.   The office staff is also great and if you think that you might want to give acupuncture a try, this is the place to go to!

I did multiple embryo transfer with the IVF but dint work, and had only one Embryo left and through my friend I heard about “Acupuncture Fertility Specialists” and met Dr Swasti. She is very knowledgeable and caring. She explained How Acupuncture works in terms of fertility, which is great to know. I did acupuncture couple of month before the embryo transfer and the day of my Embryo Transfer. This time it really worked and I am pregnant now.

I highly recommend “Acupuncture Fertility Specialists”.

I was diagnosed with low ovarian reserve. On ultrasound my ovaries had about three eggs on each side, half of what I should have at the age of 34, and my FSH is 17.7, and my AMH is 0.335. I did two IUI’s without medications with frozen sperm, then two WITH medication, and no success. My doctor said I should prepare for IVF. I started reading “Making Babies” by Sami S. David and it talked about not only all the little issues that could be preventing pregnancy (like too acidic cervical mucous, pelvic infections you don’t even know you have, inflammatory issues, etc), but how beneficial acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be when trying to conceive. I was desperate. I didn’t want to do IVF yet, and I was so blessed to have found a donor who was helping me try (I did home inseminations). It had been over a year of doing insemination after insemination with NOTHING to show for it. Never a positive test. I figured why not just try this acupuncture thing? I have nothing to lose and it’ll be good even if I end up needing to do IVF. So I found Acupuncture Fertility Specialists and saw Swasti and I immediately knew she was legit. I had learned a lot with all the research I had done about Chinese medicine and she touched on all the major issues, she did a thorough intake, and gave me a good treatment plan to get me started. I had blood stagnation, yin deficiency, and a cold uterus. She gave me herbs, she did acupuncture, and she gave me exercises and a diet to follow at home. I CONCEIVED THAT SAME MONTH! All I needed was a little help from Swasti and I was able to get pregnant! I’m currently 8 weeks now, and I’m so happy. All my doctors were telling me to do IVF, that it would be the only way and I would have a slim chance still. I am so glad I went to see Swasti. She has changed my life and I’m so grateful. I really thought I would never get pregnant, and thanks to Acupuncture Fertility Specialists I am! I’m still in shock! 😍 I highly highly recommend them. And Sylvia who runs the front office is amazing too. She’s so sweet and makes you feel comfortable immediately. They really care and they’re really getting women pregnant!
