Acupuncture and Fertility: Acupuncture Proves Fertile Ground for Healthy Conceptions

5 October 2017

In recent years, many research studies have found that acupuncture treatment can help aid
the conception process for those trying for a baby.  With fertility problems becoming an
increasing concern, fertility focused acupuncture and fertility treatment could help you to
conceive a healthy baby.

Fertility Focused Acupuncture

If you’re unfamiliar with acupuncture, it is a type of Chinese medicine and is based on the
theory that there is a natural flow of energy throughout your body.  Acupuncturists try and
rebalance this flow of energy in your body using small needles.  It is thought that fertility
focused acupuncture treatments can help to balance your hormone levels and increase the
blood flow to your reproductive organs.  It can also help improve the quality of eggs released
and also help to regulate your menstrual cycle.  In addition to this, acupuncture can also help
to improve conditions including endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.

As well as helping to improve women’s chances of a healthy conception, acupuncture can
also benefit male fertility.  Positive effects of acupuncture on men’s fertility include mobility,
morphology and sperm count.

Also, stress can have a major impact on your fertility hormones.  This is why some
specialists recommend both acupuncture and fertility treatments.  Acupuncture can be a
great option if you are looking to strengthen your body.  Acupuncture fertility treatments can
help to promote a calm, relaxed mindset.  This can help bring a more successful outcome
with your fertility treatment.

When Should Fertility Acupuncture Treatment Begin?

Acupuncture works similarly to physical therapy in that it is always better to do more than
less.  Before you undergo any fertility treatments, (including IVF) it could be a good idea to
prep your body with fertility acupuncture treatment.  Acupuncture can help regulate your
fertility hormones and increase blood flow to your ovaries.
