At 512Wellness, we are passionate about supporting and empowering today’s woman through the various stages of reproductive health — from the teen and child-bearing years to menopause.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are especially well suited to support women’s wellness. Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches us that healing begins from within, and that nagging symptoms indicate a deeper imbalance in heath. By looking at the individual person, we are able to custom tailor a treatment plan to help create a healthier, more vibrant you.
512Wellness has developed a series of treatment modules that focus on the major phases of a woman’s life: BeWell TeenSM, BeWell FertilitySM, BeWell PregnancySM, BeWell WomanSM, and BeWell PrimeSM. To address the particular needs of men’s reproductive health, we have also created the BeWell ManSM wellness module. Click on the topics below to learn more.

Austin Fertility Acupuncture Specialist
Ann Mowat has long focused her practice on the special health issues of women. To supplement her formal education, she studied with the nation’s leading acupuncture fertility expert, Dr.Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure. Ann puts this in-depth training to work to maximize your chances of conception.
Preparing for Conception
The best time to begin thinking about getting pregnant is actually before you want to get pregnant. At 512Wellness, we have created a three month fertility wellness program that helps prepare your body for pregnancy. By utilizing weekly acupuncture, individualized Chinese herbal formulations, basal body temperature charting, and nutrition consultations, we work to get the best foundation possible for pregnancy.
Today’s high stress, busy lifestyle affects reproductive health. Our program, helps to calm and create a more welcoming environment for conception. During this three month time, we’ll educate you on your cycle health, rebalance any cycle related issues, work to resolve any PMS, and discuss the best times for intercourse to greatly enhance conception.
We also advise having your partner seek treatment as well. Acupuncture to relieve stress combined with supplements to boost sperm count, motility and mobility often greatly improves men’s reproductive health.
Assisted Reproductive Technology Support
Our Preparing for Conception program also assists and supports women working with Reproductive Endocrinologists. We do so by addressing underlying reproductive wellness concerns while supporting Assisted Reproductive Technology protocols.
We work closely with women undergoing Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or Invitro Fertilization (IVF) protocols by using the proven Paulus Protocol for transfer support. This was a landmark study which examined pregnancy success rates in those undergoing Assisted Reproductive procedures. The study concluded that when utilized before and after either an IUI or IVF procedure, there is a pregnancy success rate of 42.5% in the acupuncture group versus 26.3% in the control group.
