Acupuncture is based on Chinese methods. The Chinese people believed that to remain healthy, energy should flow in a balanced way throughout your body. Whenever there is a blockage in the flow of that energy, inflammations will occur leading to severe pains and several types of diseases. Since energy flows from meridian points or energy highway, acupuncturists insert needles in different parts of the body to make energy flow smoothly. Placing needles on certain points unblocks the energy points.
Benefits of Acupuncture for Infertility and Prenatal Care
Acupuncture is effective at increasing the likelihood that you will get pregnant, and its benefits have been studied and documented by researchers. Fertility and Sterility, a medical journal, published the results of a study by a group of German researchers, who were looking for evidence that receiving acupuncture treatments increased the likelihood that a woman would conceive.
During the study, two groups of 80 women were created. One group received acupuncture along with IVF treatments, while the other group only received IVF treatments. The study found that 43% of the women that received both IVF and acupuncture conceived while only 26% of the women who only received IVF conceived.
This is because receiving regular acupuncture sessions can stimulate egg production, enrich the lining of the uterus to ensure a healthy implantation and improve blood flow throughout the body. It can also help improve the mental and emotional state of the mother-to-be, and when the mind and emotions are relaxed, fertilization and implantation are more likely to occur.
