Not being able to have children can be a devastating experience for those wanting to start a family. Solutions to this problem can be scarce and expensive, and treatment is not always successful. If you or a loved one is struggling with infertility, we would like to help educate you on how acupuncture can help.
Acupuncture treatment for infertility involves an ancient Chinese medicine technique that was used long before the technological advancements of modern medicine. In fact, many high tech infertility specialists often recommend acupuncture to those who are trying to get pregnant and those who struggle with infertility. Acupuncture uses tiny needles to stimulate specific points of energy within the body that are believed to improve physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental balance within the body. By allowing your body to have more balance, you are also allowing it to function more effectively. This balance and effectiveness is often what stands between most women and men for successful fertility treatment. IVF treatments have been known to be substantially more successful when done in conjunction with acupuncture treatments.
It is important to note that you don’t have to be infertile for acupuncture to be helpful if you are trying to conceive. Acupuncture is known to help increase the likelihood of conception by:
- improving blood flow to reproductive organs
- reducing stress
- balancing hormones
This holistic alternative is often effective when treatment is done prior to conception and in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy in order to decrease the chances of a miscarriage.
