Aimee Raupp – Acupuncture Services in Westport, CT
With an increasing interest in alternative medicine, acupuncture has emerged as a viable solution for a range of health issues, including many that traditional medicine struggles to treat effectively. The thousands of years old practice is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and involves stimulating sensory nerves and ‘acupoints’ under the skin and in the muscles to trigger the body’s innate healing responses. This helps treat a range of health issues without the use of chemical-based drugs and experiencing any side effects. Acupuncture is safe and can be used for people of all ages.
Acupuncture Services That We Offer
Named after the founder and supervisor, Aimee Raupp is a holistic health clinic specializing in traditional Chinese medicine. Aimee and her incredible team use TCM methods, including (but not limited to) acupuncture and herbs, to treat a wide range of health conditions. Our acupuncture services in Westport, CT, include:
According to research, about 11% of women and 9% of men of reproductive age struggle with fertility issues in the US and have trouble getting pregnant as a result. Acupuncture can help increase the odds of them conceiving naturally by increasing blood circulation to the reproductive organs, improving egg quality, regulating hormones, and alleviating stress.
We at the Aimee Raupp clinic use acupuncture to treat a range of fertility problems. Some of our most popular fertility acupuncture services include:
Acupuncture has long been used as an adjunct therapy to improve health and wellness, including fertility. But more recently, it has shown great success in improving the outcome of assisted reproductive techniques, particularly IVF.
Acupuncture for IVF helps relieve the stress that women generally experience when undergoing fertility treatment. It also improves the blood flow to reproductive organs, ensuring they receive adequate nourishment, which then can help create a more favorable environment for implantation in the body. IVF acupuncture has also been shown to improve IVF success rate by upwards of 30-40% (depending on the study). Even more, the current research shows that regular, consistent acupuncture (on a weekly or bi-monthly basis) in the lead up to IVF doesn’t just help women get pregnant through IVF, but it can also help sustain pregnancies and improve the chances of live birth.
Aimee Raupp is a holistic fertility expert in Westport, CT, with over two decades of industry experience and a proven track record of helping thousands of women get pregnant through IVF acupuncture.

Acupuncture for PCOS
PCOS, or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is a female fertility condition that causes numerous tiny cysts in the ovaries, affecting their functioning. The two key characteristic features of PCOS are irregular periods and increased production of androgen – the male hormone – in the body.
Acupuncture can help treat PCOS by regulating ovulation p and reducing androgen production and sympathetic nerve activity. It can also reduce the number of cysts in the ovaries providing permanent relief from PCOS.
Acupuncture for Endometriosis
Characterized by the growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, endometriosis can affect fertility in various ways. It can cause scarring of the fallopian tubes, inflammation in the pelvis, hormonal changes affecting egg quality, immune system alterations, and impaired implantation.
Acupuncture is highly effective in alleviating the pain and discomfort associated with endometriosis. It also helps regulate hormones, reduce inflammation, improve egg quality, and boost the immune system.
Acupuncture for Poor Ovarian Reserve
Loss of reproductivity due to lower egg count or poor quality of eggs remaining in the ovaries is called poor or diminished ovarian reserve. Acupuncture can help with it by increasing the blood flow to the ovaries, boosting their responsiveness to the signals sent by the pituitary gland. It also helps lower FSH. Acupuncture for Poor Ovarian Reserve improves the quality of remaining eggs, thus, increasing the chances of fertilization and conception.
Acupuncture for Amenorrhea
Acupuncture can help treat secondary amenorrhea by regulating hormones, the Hypothalamic -Pituitary -Ovarian axis, and blood flow.
Acupuncture for Male Fertility
Acupuncture can also help improve male fertility by alleviating stress, treating hormonal imbalance, and improving sperm quality, motility, morphology, and concentration. The ancient practice also helps with varicocele; the enlargement of the veins in the scrotum.
Acupuncture for Painful Periods
Period cramps can be painful to the point of disrupting your daily life. If you experience painful periods, know that acupuncture can significantly reduce its intensity and duration.
Acupuncture for Ovarian Cysts
Most ovarian cysts are benign and asymptomatic, but some grow large and cause pain. They may cause the ovary to twist, reducing or completely stopping the blood flow to it, permanently damaging the ovary. Our TCM experts at Aimee Raupp can help avoid these complications, slow down the growth of ovarian cysts, and maintain ovarian function through hormone regulation and improving the blood flow and circulation in the pelvic area.
Acupuncture for Miscarriage
Recurrent pregnancy loss can wreak havoc on a woman’s body, as well as mental health. Acupuncture can help prevent miscarriages caused by hormonal abnormalities, poor quality or thin endometrial lining, blood clotting, stress, and immune system problems. Acupuncture can also help prevent uterine contractions during the early stages of pregnancy.
Acupuncture for Autoimmune Diseases
Acupuncture can benefit those struggling with autoimmune disorders by providing both symptomatic relief and a long-term cure by gradually re-programming the brain and regulating the immune system, bringing it back to its normal functioning.
Acupuncture for Thyroid Disorders
Acupuncture has proven to be a safe and effective treatment for all types of hormonal imbalances, as well as several endocrine system disorders. It can help regulate thyroid hormones, providing relief from both hyper and hypothyroidism.
Acupuncture for Menopause
Though a natural part of the aging process, menopause can cause women to experience a range of uncomfortable symptoms, pain, and anxiety. Acupuncture can help with all of these and also help improve the mood by triggering the release of endorphins in the body.
Acupuncture for Headaches / Migraines
Several studies have shown that acupuncture works better for pain relief in most situations than standard care methods. This goes for headaches, too, including migraines. The ancient technique works by stimulating the circulatory system and triggering the release of pain-relieving chemicals.
Acupuncture for Anxiety
Relief from stress and anxiety is among the most proven benefits of acupuncture. It helps reduce the levels of stress hormones in the body, along with increasing the amount of feel-good hormones. It is also known to have zero side effects, which is a big positive compared to standard anxiety medications.
Acupuncture for Depression
Acupuncture’s stress-relieving and mood-uplifting properties also make it beneficial for those struggling with depression. In some studies, acupuncture has shown the same effect as some widely used antidepressants minus their negative effects.
Acupuncture for Insomnia
Acupuncture can help improve sleep quality and duration by promoting relaxation and shutting down the ‘analytical’ brain. It may also help stimulate and boost melatonin production in the body. According to some studies, the benefits of acupuncture for insomnia can be compared to benzodiazepines, a class of drugs commonly used to treat insomnia.
Acupuncture for Gastrointestinal Disorders
The ancient Oriental practice of acupuncture helps treat a range of digestive issues by fixing the digestive imbalance, reducing gastric acid release, boosting metabolism, and regulating intestinal function. It helps realign the gut-brain axis and improve gut health.
Acupuncture for Pregnancy
People struggling to get pregnant or sustain pregnancy can benefit greatly from acupuncture. Alternative therapy can help regulate hormones, improve egg quality, treat low-quality or thin endometrial lining, and aid with implantation. It can also help relieve uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms, like nausea, morning sickness, heartburn, swelling, and pain.
Acupuncture for Postpartum
Acupuncture doesn’t just help during pregnancy; it can also offer physical and emotional support during the postpartum period, helping women recover after giving birth. The ancient Chinese treatment can help with postpartum symptoms like fatigue, depression, anxiety, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, insufficient lactation, and mastitis.
