Chelsey Croskeys is a Board Certified and Licensed Acupuncture Physician and the owner of Acupuncture Wellness Solutions. Chelsey graduated with honors from the Florida College of Integrative Medicine with a Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine, and also holds a Master’s degree in Nutrition. She has specialized training and clinical experience with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and other Oriental modalities. Chelsey’s training in both Eastern and Western medicine facilitates an integrated approach to healing.
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), Acupuncture is an effective treatment for many common conditions affecting women. Chinese medicine and nutritional/lifestyle intervention successfully treats menopausal symptoms, irregular or painful periods, insomnia, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, headaches, migraines, fatigue and infertility.
Chelsey specializes in supporting couples dealing with infertility. By restoring health and balance to the body, acupuncture enhances fertility and supports an easy, healthy pregnancy. Acupuncture is also one of the most effective ways to reduce stress, which is a common issue for couples trying to conceive.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine has the effect of balancing hormone secretion cycles (estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH) and modulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis. Additionally, acupuncture can improve fertility by increasing circulation to the ovaries and uterus, promoting healthier eggs and increasing chances for implantation. Acupuncture is also effective in treating infertility resulting from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Research shows acupuncture nearly doubles the pregnancy outcomes for IVF procedures.
“My reason for practicing natural healthcare is the joy I experience each day helping people recover from pain, chronic illness, and emotional distress,” says Chelsey. “My main goal is to share the benefi ts of natural medicine with as many as possible.”
