And if you’re into getting out during the week, join us for the last two fun NIAW events from 7-9 pm in our Melville office:

Fertile Yoga Night Tonight

Yoga with a Baby Goal! Created for both newbies and yoga devotes, this is your chance to participate in a yoga session specifically geared to potentially enhance your fertility. Bring your mat or a towel (and yoga pants or gym wear) and experience mediation, breathing and stretching designed to reduce stress, lessen muscle tension and increase blood flow to the pelvis. You’ll be guided by Lisa Pineda, an instructor experienced in yoga for fertility who will leave you relaxed and wanting more. Light refreshments.

 

Alternative Medicine & Holistic Approaches to Fertility Enhancement Night Tomorrow

This interactive evening will highlight Mind-Body and holistic medicine practices including meditation techniques, breath work, Reiki, massage therapy and a live demonstration of fertility-focused acupuncture. LIIVF’s own Dr. David Kreiner will discuss acupuncture and Bina Benisch, MS RN and other affiliated local practitioners will lead the other discussions/demos. Additionally, Rachel Liberatore, LMT, from Nu Touch Therapy will be providing free chair massages. Jim Vitale of Suffolk County Acupuncture will give a live demo of fertility-focused acupuncture, too. Don’t miss this chance to learn how to help yourself reduce stress and improve your own fertility. Light refreshments.

The events are FREE, but pre-registration is required. If you’ve been trying to conceive without success, please RSVP immediately to reserve your spot by contacting our Patient Services Coordinator, Lindsay Montello at 631-386-5509 or lmontello@liivf.com. You do not have to be a Long Island IVF patient to attend. Feel free to bring your partner or a friend.

Long Island IVF-Cade Foundation Dancing Event Wrap Up

By admin

October 1st, 2014 at 9:08 am


It was a blur. Glossy wood floors, brass accents, perfect lighting. Intoxicating music and palpable excitement filled the air.

Stepping off the red carpet and into the breath-taking Dance With Me Studio… onto the very dance floor that Dancing With the Stars® champion dancers have graced… made most attendees feel like celebrities themselves.

Be sure to check out a slideshow of some of the photos on our website and Facebook page and You Tube http://youtu.be/w5_mHGkl4Xk

And, like those champions, many attendees were on that floor with the dream of winning. Not a trophy, but something even better… a chance to build a family. They were there hoping to win the free IVF cycle door prize donated by Long Island IVF for themselves or a loved one.

And while there were understandably some disappointed hearts, every attendee should realize that as a result of their support of this event, the Cade Foundation raised funds that will be used to help infertile couples receive education and financing opportunities for fertility treatment or adoption. In fact, ideas for next year’s big event are already being discussed.

Nothing brings us greater satisfaction than being able to give away such a valuable door prize as an IVF cycle to a couple struggling to conceive and who would not otherwise be able to proceed with their infertility treatment.

This year’s winner donated the IVF cycle to her friend. We wish her, and everyone still on their journey, the best of luck.

Any suggestions for next year? Should we consider a new venue or dance the night away again? Would you prefer a different time of year? Let us know what you think so we can craft the night of your dreams.

Dancing for the Family is on My Prescription List

By David Kreiner MD

July 22nd, 2014 at 8:27 am

 

Dr. Kreiner and dance partner


 

For two years I have been taking ballroom dancing lessons, learning such dances as the cha cha, rumba, swing, and more.  As a typical male who grew up playing baseball, football, and basketball, the idea of coordinated movement synchronized to music was as much an anathema to me as voluntarily going for more schooling decades after I had already completed my studies to establish my career.  Yet, I have enjoyed both ventures.

 

As a physician trained to observe others, I am amazed at the life-changing impact dance has had on so many of my fellow students.  On one level I see them making meaningful friendships with people they may never have otherwise met.  In addition, through dance they perform aerobic exercise that helps to burn calories, train their cardiovascular system, and prevent the arthritic effects of stagnation of joints and muscles.  Furthermore, they are releasing endorphins that are mood-elevating and their performances, competitions, and shows help boost their self-confidence and egos.

Dr. and Mrs. Kreiner at dance show

 

From my Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective they are generating and improving the flow of Qi in their bodies benefitting not only the skeletal muscular system but their constitutional health.  In a word, dance brings joy to both the dancer and those fortunate to observe the dance.

 

As a reproductive endocrinologist involved with infertile patients on a daily basis, I see the stresses and frustrations that infertility brings to its sufferers.  I see dance as a panacea to diminish the stress which both Western and TCM blame as a protagonist in the battle to conceive.

 

Yes, dance is on my prescription list of therapies for my infertile patients. 

 

If you please, for your own benefit as well as that of the infertile community on Long Island, join us at our come to our “Dance for the Family” benefit on August 23, 2014 at Dance With Me Long Island in Glen Head, New York, home of Dancing with the Stars™ champions.  Perhaps, it is your own family you will be dancing for. For further details on this night of professional dance lessons, drinks, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, a silent auction and a chance to win a door prize of a free IVF cycle donated by Long Island IVF and/or to purchase tickets ($65 or $100 VIP) click:  http://bit.ly/1p8hDZ9 .

Long Island IVF “Dancing for the Family” Fundraiser with Free IVF Cycle Door Prize

By Tracey Minella

June 25th, 2014 at 5:48 pm


Remember date nights?

Infertility often wreaks havoc on a couple’s social life. Couples who were the life of the party before their diagnosis may start to withdraw from social situations for several reasons including depression, apathy, and financial restraint. If the journey is long, the couple can become virtual hermits.

Sound like you?

Well, we have a very special Saturday night planned with your name on it! Long Island IVF has partnered with the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation’s Dancing for the Family to bring you an event that is the first of its kind anywhere…and it’s coming this summer on August 23, 2014 at Dance with Me Studios Long Island, in Glen Head, N.Y.

Each attendee will have a chance to win a great door prize: A FREE IVF CYCLE donated by Long Island IVF*.

So whether you were party animals who loved to tear up the dance floor or just a couple of couch potatoes who watch Dancing With The Stars®, this event is for you. You will get to dance in the very studio where professional and DWTS dancers like Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy and Tony Dovolani call home. You should be sashaying across the floor to order your tickets already, but if you need some persuading to fight that “hermit habit” just picture this…

The big night arrives. It’s date night. At least one of you is excited enough to have made these plans. You’ll get dressed up a bit, maybe for the first time in a while. Your eyes meet. The old spark ignites between you and any apprehension melts away. You’re on your way. The studio is abuzz with excitement. People are eating and enjoying the silent auction. You’ve got a drink in hand. Moods are relaxed, the music starts, and the professional dance instruction fun begins.

By the evening’s end, you’ve rediscovered each other or maybe met some new friends who share your challenge. Perhaps you even cut the rug with one of the LIIVF doctors. You’ve danced and laughed and possibly even won a silent auction prize. Or the free IVF cycle door prize. Someone will win it. And since attendance is limited, the odds are increased.

The coveted door prize is even transferable once*, so encourage your generous friends and family… who may not personally need the Free IVF cycle… to join you at this special event to help increase your odds of winning.

Go on, make it a party. Share this event with your friends and bring your own crowd!

You’ll leave feeling like a champion for being part of this ground-breaking event since all proceeds raised will enable the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation to offer education-based programming and Family-Building grants to help people overcome infertility.

Tickets are available at www.LIDanceForTheFamily.eventbrite.com. Admission tickets are only $65 (or $100 for V.I.P tickets). A portion of each ticket is tax deductible. See details on the eventbrite link. Don’t delay. Tickets are first-come, first-served. Click the link and reserve your spot today! Go on. Click. Now.
