How does Acupuncture promote fertility?
Acupuncture is a holistic system of medicine that has been used for centuries to diagnose, treat and prevent illness. Acupuncturists insert extremely thin, fine, sterile needles into points along the body, stimulating the body’s innate energy known as Qi. These points connect to a network of channels that run beneath the surface of the skin, where they flow into the major organs. When the flow of Qi is disrupted, the body’s systems become imbalanced. This is frequently experienced as illness or pain, and can appear in women as period irregularities, menstrual pain, and also infertility.
The goal of acupuncture is to remove these disruptions and revitalize the flow of energy in the meridians. Acupuncture is proven to remedy acute or chronic ailments, relieve pain, enhance recuperative powers, and strengthen the immune system. It is also effective in soothing the mind and balancing the body’s hormones and chemicals, thus regulating the cycle and enhancing fertility.
There are many factors affecting fertility in women, from PCOS to endometriosis to fallopian tube blockages. The good news is that acupuncture has been shown in many clinical studies to effectively treat these conditions (and more) and restore a woman’s fertility. Furthermore, clinical studies have shown that acupuncture treatments prior to and after in vitro fertilization or IVF procedures greatly enhance the success rates. Acupuncture treatments throughout your first trimester can also reduce the risk of miscarriage.
What Can I Expect During Acupuncture Fertility Treatment?
During the initial consultation, our fertility specialist will take a comprehensive history of your health and wellness. The initial visit can last up to 90 minutes, including your first treatment. This initial visit provides a diagram of the overall state of the body, not just a particular symptom. He will ask questions, perform simple non-invasive diagnostic tests (pulse and tongue diagnosis), and most importantly, listen to you! We want to know all about your journey so we can fully help you achieve the result you desire.
Subsequent visits usually last about 40 minutes and are done on a weekly or bi-weekly basis depending on your need for treatment. The course of treatments can vary widely. Issues that have been around for a long time may take more treatments to resolve than ones that are acute. Your treatment course will be determined after the initial consultation and re-assessed after each visit. Many of our patients have seen noticeable, positive results in 1-4 menstrual cycles.
