How Fertility Acupuncture Works
By Increasing Blood Flow to Ovaries and Uterus
This means more nutrients get to your egg cells and the cells that support early pregnancy through hormone production. When your uterine lining has been well supplied with healthy oxygenated blood, implantation is more likely to occur successfully
By Regulating Activity in Hypo-thalamic Ovarian Axis in the Brain
This means the deep structures in your brain that produce chemicals to regulate your menstrual cycle and metabolism are more responsive to signals received from your ovaries and vice-versa. Acupuncture calibrates and fine-tunes this (HPO axis) system.
By Improving Resilience to Stress and Promoting True Relaxation
With acupuncture, all your body systems recover easily from the stressors of daily life. You feel better, and fertility is enhanced because during times of unchecked stress cortisol levels may be high and progesterone may be low.
By Reducing Uterine Cramping at Key Times During Menstruation and Implantation
This means your uterus is more hospitable for implantation and early embryo development. Clinical research has shown, for example, that reducing uterine cramping during IVF procedures can increase implantation rates
By Increasing Sperm Production, Reducing Systemic Inflammation and Pathogenic Heat
This means your partner's sperm will be as genetically healthy and motile as possible. Most men with less-than-stellar sperm quality and motility have underlying imbalances or inflammation that can be corrected with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and dietary and lifestyle changes
By Improving Libido and Overall Sexual Function
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine have been used for centuries to improve female and male sexual desire and function. And active and balanced sex life is one of the best ways to give a natural boost to your fertility. Stress and poor circulation can harm your sex life, and acupuncture helps with this!
