Fertility Acupuncture Chipping Norton

Fertility Acupuncture is a system of healing which draws on over two thousand years of experience from China and the Far East. Acupuncture works by rebalancing the body’s flow of energy. Illness can occur when the flow of energy around the body is blocked, or is uneven, and this causes symptoms.

By inserting fine needles at specific points on the body, the acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response to restore a healthy balance.

There are different causes of infertility, some are known – issues with ovulation, tubal damage, low sperm count or low sperm quality – and some are unknown. For all causes of infertility it can be a devastating blow to a couple that they are having difficulty conceiving, acupuncture can really help.

Research has been carried out that begins to explain how acupuncture may benefit fertility issues. Acupuncture may be able to help in a number of ways by

  • regulating fertility hormones
  • increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs
  • counteracting the effects of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

What happens during a treatment?

The acupuncturist will ask questions about your symptoms, your medical history, and general questions about your diet and lifestyle in order to build a complete picture of your health. Then appropriate acupuncture points for your individual treatment can be selected.


Will it help?

Treating fertility issues can sometimes take a while, and patients want to know if acupuncture is helping. If you are responding to acupuncture you will notice the benefits. For example your cycle may become more regular, periods are less painful, less PMT, and more obvious signs of ovulation. You may also notice you have more energy, you are sleeping better, improved concentration, and you are less irritable. All these changes indicate that acupuncture is helping to balance the flow of your energy around your body.
