When you have difficulties of conceiving and are looking for an acupuncturist with expertise to help, your choice of acupuncturist may influence the final result of your infertility treatment. Therefore, it should be done prudently and should not be based on someone’s claim or a cheaper price.
There are hundreds of acupuncturists in Quebec and about more than one dozen of them claim to offer infertility treatment. Why should you come to Sinocare for infertility treatment? The reason is simple: Led by renowned acupuncturist Aina Zhang (“an important member of Celine Dion’s Dream Team”, le Journal de Montreal, 01/06/2010), Sinocare is possibly the best and biggest infertility acupuncture clinic in Quebec.
Gynecology and infertility is an incredibly complex and delicate specialty in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It takes years of studying, working under the guidance of a master, and clinical practice to be proficiency. In other words, taking a weekend course or reading a few books or clinical studies on that subject doesn’t turn someone into an “expert”.
Before choosing an acupuncturist for infertility treatment, you should ask some questions and compare the answers what Sinocare offers, and only then, you could make an informed decision about your infertility acupuncture treatment.
