Acupuncture for Healing
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese treatment that uses thin, long needles, which are placed into the individual’s skin at specific spots called meridians in order to balance the body, promote energy flow through the meridians and balance every aspect of the body, including the physical self, mind and spirit. It can be used to heal a variety of ailments, including infertility, and it reduces stress and anxiety.
If you’ve spent months trying to conceive, tried traditional treatments and still failed to conceive, acupuncture could increase your fertility. It is a holistic treatment option that does not use any medications or invasive procedures, and it can be combined with traditional treatments as well as supplements to improve your odds of getting pregnant.
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 percent of the women that received both IVF and acupuncture conceived while only 26 percent 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.
This holistic treatment option can be used before conception to increase the likelihood of getting pregnant and after conception as early pregnancy prenatal care, during the first 12 weeks, to decrease the chances of a miscarraige, and there are very few side-effects to recieving this treatment.
The only difference between pre and post conception treatments is that certain meridians in the abdomen will not be used after conception has taken place. This is to ensure the treatments do not interfere with the embryo and development of your baby.
