Chang Acupuncture & Associates' proven program has helped hundreds of patients conceive in the quickest, most cost effective manner.  Our fertility specialists have demonstrated expertise in natural and western medical fertility treatments and personally tailor a custom plan for conception just for you.  We work in tandem with medical doctors to combine the most gentle and effective approaches into one cohesive program to achieve a healthy, natural solution for each of patient’s individual scenario.

Note regarding our education and licensing:  EDUCATION: At Chang Acupuncture & Associates, Inc., we are all licensed acupuncturists with a Master’s Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine which is a 4 year program. Our education encompasses natural therapies such as acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and nutritional guidance. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are the core of the Master’s program so we study those topics intensively for all 4 years, every semester. LICENSING: In CA, in order to practice acupuncture, we need to sit for an exam administered by the Acupuncture Board which is overseen by the Department of Consumer Affairs who also oversees the Medical Board of CA, the Board of Registered Nursing, and the Physician’s Assistant committee. In addition, to maintain our license, we need to have 50 continuing education credits every 2 years.

As a mother herself, Heidi takes great joy in helping her patients to achieve their dreams of creating a family. She is dedicated to supporting healthy pregnancies from start to finish.

The program includes reflective exercises, fertility meditations and visualizations, relationship exercises, and Zen Fertility Yoga for improving reproductive health. It helps participants to find joy and peace during their fertile journey as well as play a key role in successfully conceiving.

Heidi is currently compiling a book and Zen Fertility Yoga DVD so that the program is widely available to those trying to conceive. She also offers personal Zen Fertility Coaching Sessions during the program to provide individualized support and guidance.
