PULLING DOWN THE MOON

Pulling Down the Moon: We are practitioners, patients, and a community passionate about making your dream a reality.

From our founders, we have a heritage of employing staff who have undergone their own fertility & women’s health journeys. Fertility isn’t just what we do – it’s who we are. We are trained experts, leaders, and innovators in holistic medicine and women’s health. We work with the top medical professionals in the field to provide education, research, and integrated care. We understand the complexity and interconnectedness of your body. We know the mental, emotional, and physical stress that fertility challenges create. Most of all, we understand that you are not a statistic.

You are a complex, unique person. We strive to give you treatment your way, blending the best of western medicine with eastern wisdom, or helping you achieve your dream through totally natural and holistic means. As an interdisciplinary center, we take a comprehensive, whole-person approach toward your health, weaving together a wellness plan that is tailored specifically to your needs. To achieve this, we pull from multiple modalities, whether nutrition, acupuncture, yoga, massage, or supplemental support, all while working collaboratively with your medical doctor, creating the ultimate fertility team. Our programs can also be used to support women throughout all seasons of life and addressing a variety of women’s health issues, from the start of menses to menopause, PCOS, endometriosis, postpartum support, and beyond.

Please find our contact information and a map of our location to the right. We hope you enjoy Downtown Highland Park as much as we do!

Day 7 of 12 Holiday Tips from Pulling Down the Moon comes from Kelly Lyons from the Acupuncture Team!

Natures candy is the sweet potato! This magnificent root vegetable tonifies blood, yin, and Qi. It is neutral in temperature, so it wont exacerbate any internal heat or cold issues. It is easy to bake and set aside. In fact, eating it after it has cooled down will create more resistant starch, which can help you get that much needed BM! 

During your ovulation window, add a little cinnamon, like Anna suggested earlier in our 12 Days of Christmas, and you are tonifying your yang! Be wise about your approaches. Happy Holidays to you all! Get ready to bid 2018 Adieu.

Day 6 of 12 Holiday Tips from Pulling Down the Moon comes from our Massage Team!

The healing power of touch can be essential for self-care this season!  This can be as simple as hug from a friend or holding hands with your partner.  This can include taking time for yourself for massage therapy. When TTC, intimate touch may not be as pleasurable as it once was and it can be important to reconnect to the power of touch.

It has long been suspected that massage therapy offers a number of mood enhancing benefits. Research conducted at the TOUCH Research Institute at the University of Miami revealed that massage also increased the availability of all neurohormones affecting brain chemistry! Massage tends to elevate levels of dopamine (affecting inspiration, joy, and enthusiasm), raise the availability of serotonin (regulating emotions including to quell irritability and improve sleep/sex drive), and reduce adrenaline in your system (creating a feeling of relaxation).
