Acupuncture & Fertility
Chinese medicine has a long and established history of improving fertility. Whether you are preparing to conceive, actively trying to conceive or embarking on IVF, Chinese Medicine has a lot to offer. Tom follows protocols supported by research to assist patients to improve their fertility with acupuncture.
Acupuncture can enhance good healthy bodily function and help optimise your chances of falling pregnant naturally. This is important in both male and female partners, as you are both equally important to the fertility process. Women and men who are good candidates for fertility acupuncture are those who have a functional, rather than a structural reason for infertility.
In men it can be performed to assist with optimal sperm production and function, and in women it can help to adjust the endocrine function in order to stimulate ovulation as well as balance your hormones.
Acupuncture is also used to help regulate your menstrual cycle, improve overall circulation and blood flow to your uterus and ovaries. Importantly acupuncture can help improve your ability to manage the stress and anxiety that often accompanies infertility. The amount of treatment needed depends on your individual situation, however, treatment is most successful when started earlier and timed around important events such as ovulation.
