Are you trying to get pregnant?
You may have heard that many women have turned to acupuncture to help them when things aren’t quite going as planned. Acupuncture is one of the most popular forms of alternative treatment for infertility, and for good reason: Studies have shown it to be as effective or even more effective than infertility medications like Clomid at inducing ovulation. This is remarkable because ovulation disorders are the number one cause of fertility issues. In addition, acupuncture helps improve uterine blood-flow, improve quality both eggs and sperm, and it balances hormones. It does all this while reducing stress, which is essential, as increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol are known to inhibit pregnancy. There are a variety of factors that go into infertility and we specialize in assisting both men and women in overcoming fertility set backs in a natural way.
How does acupuncture do all this?
According to Chinese medicine, we have several rivers in the body called meridians in which vital life energy, or qi, flows. An imbalance in these rivers can cause the qi to back up or even stop flowing, and cause the body to experience physical and emotional illness. By placing needles in specific points, Acupuncturists are able to reestablish the free flow of the vital life energy and coax the body back into balance. From a medical perspective, acupuncture causes the body to release hormones and blood cells that help regulate body processes related to things like reproduction. No matter which way you look at it, acupuncture has been shown to be a safe, effective, and drug free treatment for infertility.
