Acupuncture and Fertility

The treatment of infertility with Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) dates back over 2000 years. These ancient, time-tested techniques improve fertility rates and support a women’s whole body, unlocking unlimited potential for health, healing and childbearing.

Studies reported by the American Pregnancy Association suggest that the most effective fertility treatments involve a combination of Acupuncture, herbal medicine and traditional medical interventions. However conception does sometimes occur without traditional medical interventions when acupuncture and herbal medicines are used alone.*

Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York reviewed recent studies and concluded that acupuncture helps to:

Increase blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the uterine wall.
Reduce anxiety and stress. The hormones that are secreted during stressful situations can significantly decrease fertility.
Normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with poly-cystic ovarian syndrome.
Positively affect the hypothalami-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a key role in fertility.
Regulate menstrual cycle.**
