Acupuncture & Fertility


Acupuncture has been used to promote fertility for thousands of years.


It is an approach that works with the body's own energy to nourish and strengthen all of its organs and systems, including the reproductive system. Oftentimes, the most ancient modalities are the best and most natural means to help minimize the effects of things that certainly contribute to the high incidence of infertility in our modern world-factors such as our polluted environment, high stress levels, and unhealthy food options.


By focusing on specific pathways of energy and particular associated points, acupuncture increases blood supply and overall circulation of vital energy to the ovaries, the lining of the uterus, as well as all of the organs involved in reproduction. In this way, acupuncture is effective in treating a wide range of women's health concerns and promoting fertility, leading to a healthy pregnancy. Due to its strong influence on the reproductive and endocrine systems, acupuncture can address conditions that may hinder fertility, such as thyroid imbalance, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and a variety of menstrual issues.


Acupuncture is also known to impact the areas of the brain that supply the hormones involved in fertility, whose role is to stimulate and/or regulate egg production and impact the timely release of the egg. In addition, acupuncture increases production of endorphins, those "feel good" chemicals in the brain that, besides relieving anxiety, also play a role in regulating the menstrual cycle.


In essence, acupuncture works holistically to help restore health and balance to not only the reproductive system that will naturally result in conception and contribute to a healthy pregnancy, but also to the entire body. As with every complementary approach, acupuncture always works best in conjunction with optimal nutrition and plenty of exercise in order to promote the flow of vital energy and overall wellness necessary to bring this about!


Disclosure: Because infertility is a medical issue, we recommend that a physician first examine women in order to rule out any structural deficit or other issues that may impede pregnancy prior to beginning acupuncture treatment.
