Fertility, Pregnancy & Delivery

Increasing Fertility through Acupuncture

  • Clinically Proven Effective
  • Gentle, Soothing & Painless
  • Naturally Helps Your Body Conceive
  • Lasting Results for Men & Women
  • Minimize IVF Drug Side Effects
  • Enhances Traditional IVF

For a variety of reasons, becoming pregnant has become more challenging in recent years. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine have proved to be highly successful in increasing a couple’s chances of conceiving and delivering healthy babies. Used in China for centuries, this ancient, safe, non-invasive treatment is now also being used in conjunction with the modern, medical procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Unlock Your Body’s Power to Conceive

Acupuncture is based on the natural balancing of the body’s energy. When the energy (qi) flows freely, health is maintained. Once the flow is blocked, the body’s function is impaired. By gently stimulating certain key energy points, Acupuncture helps restore the body’s natural balance and wellbeing.

The same basic principles of Acupuncture — restoring the body’s natural flow of energy — apply to fertility problems as well. Gentle, soothing treatments unlock the energy that nourishes conception. What’s more, using both IVF and Acupuncture together has resulted in dramatically increasing the success rate of the IVF procedure.

Proven Effective in Clinical Studies

Clinical studies show that IVF with Acupuncture is more successful than IVF alone. In a 2008 study of 1,366 women published in the British Medical Journal, Acupuncture included in the embryo transfer procedure improved pregnancy rates and live births by an astounding 65%.

Other extensive studies support similar results. Patients who have tried IVF several times and were unsuccessful soon became pregnant following Acupuncture treatments. Ultrasounds show that after Acupuncture, the ovaries change from cloudy to bright and clear, follicles usually double in number and the lining of the uterus becomes thicker.

Acupuncture throughout Pregnancy

  • Completely Safe for Mother & Child
  • Used Successfully for Centuries
  • Approved by Obstetricians
  • Complements Conventional Medicine

Acupuncture is an ideal complement to conventional care throughout pregnancy, labor and delivery, and beyond. Safe, gentle treatments administered on a regular basis help minimize, if not eliminate, many of the difficult symptoms and challenges that frequently arise. These include nausea and morning sickness, diet and weight balancing, back and pelvic pain, depression and anxiety, irritability and insomnia. In short, proper treatment creates a calmer, healthier experience for both mother and child. Acupuncture has also proved highly effective in turning the baby around safely and naturally if it is in breech (upside down) position. For these and other reasons, Acupuncture has been used successfully by pregnant women for centuries.

Easing the Stress of Pregnancy, Labor & Delivery with Acupuncture

The last few months of pregnancy are often the most trying for expectant mothers, with physical and emotional stress reaching their highest levels. Acupuncture can help minimize both. Gentle treatments strengthen the mother’s energy, help relieve pain and discomfort, and greatly reduce stress levels.  Acupuncture has proved extremely helpful in safely inducing labor. Proper treatment helps shorten both labor and hospital stays, and minimizes, if not completely eliminates, the need for labor-inducing medications. Studies also show that women who receive Acupuncture prior to labor were less likely to require caesarean deliveries.

The Benefits of Acupuncture during Post-Partum

The period after delivery is often extremely challenging for the mother, both physically and emotionally. Acupuncture treatments help restore a mother’s strength and natural balance, and accelerate her recovery. It has proved extremely effective in reducing hemorrhoidal symptoms that occur as a result of delivery. Consistent treatment, often accompanied with Chinese Herbs and Nutritional Supplements will also help prevent, minimize and eliminate any post-partum depression. In addition, Acupuncture treatments help ensure a consistent, even supply of milk production. Mothers find these treatments sessions to be greatly nourishing, soothing and comforting.

Enhancing Male Fertility with Acupuncture

As fertility issues are equally common among men, treating the father has proved to be highly successful in helping couples conceive. Acupuncture has been shown to dramatically improve sperm quantity, quality, strength and motility (movement).
