Spas Cater To Couples Trying To Conceive

A growing number of couples are turning to spas to increase their chances of conceiving.

Instead of taking hormone injections, prospective mothers are submitting to acupuncture needles. Meds are being traded for massage. And in place of a cold doctor's office, couples enjoy feng shuied rooms, cascading waterfalls, and enough New Age music to turn a pit bull into a poodle.

It's all part of the philosophy that relaxation is the drug-free path to reproductive success.

Ring-Adams does not advocate abandoning medical treatments for couples trying to conceive, but believes a woman's best chance is to use acupuncture as an adjunct to assisted reproductive technologies.
