Denise Wiesner’s new book “Conceiving with Love” will change the way you think about sex. It is a whole-body approach to creating intimacy, reigniting passion, and increasing fertility.

Although this book was specifically written for couples who have been trying to conceive through natural means and using Western reproductive technologies like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), all readers will learn new techniques to enhance intimacy with themselves and their partners.

What makes this book special is the plethora of Eastern practices for singles and couples that help move and balance energy so that partners can connect authentically and bring spirituality back to love-making.

Sometimes couples lose their loving connection and need to find ways to re-ignite the flame they had when they first met. “Conceiving with Love” delineates all of the obstacles that hinder authentic connections and provides solutions, practices and resources to overcome them.

Ms. Wiesner is the founder of the Natural Healing and Acupuncture Clinic in West Los Angeles and a recognized traditional Chinese medicine practitioner specializing in the Whole Systems Traditional Chinese medicine approach to health, sexuality, and fertility. Since 1994 she has treated and helped women manage challenges regarding sexuality and fertility. Using a combination of acupuncture, diet and lifestyle counseling, nutritional supplements and Chinese herbs, Ms. Wiesner has helped thousands of couples navigate the tricky and often stressful journey towards getting pregnant while increasing their loving connection.

For “Conceiving with Love” Ms. Wiesner travelled around the world interviewing leading experts including Western reproductive endocrinologists, urologists, gynecologists, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners as well as tantra experts, trauma experts, qigong teachers, Taoist practitioners, kink educators, sex toy manufacturers, yoga practitioners, fengshui experts, Buddhist and Hindu authorities, mindfulness practitioners, psychologists, authors, sexologists, and sacred sexuality workshop leaders.

In particular, I greatly appreciated the way Ms. Wiesner was able to normalize all of these myriad practices to eliminate any possible shame that Westerners might feel regarding sexuality. For men, she has many exercises to reduce performance anxiety and get us out of our heads and into the present moment.

Her secrets to why couples thrive include: the taoist inner smile practice, the eye-gazing during love-making practice, partner breath work and many others.

Extremely well-researched and extremely well-written, this heartfelt, comprehensive yet practical book will enhance the life of anyone who was ever interested in either procreational and non-procreational sex. “Conceiving With Love” is a true gift for all couples who want to take their love-making to the next level. It gives couples the tools they need to repair their sexual relationships, rebuild their self-confidence, and reclaim their intimacy and desire.
