Adding Acupuncture Can Support Fertility

For women who are trying to become pregnant, the ancient Chinese art of acupuncture may help increase their chance of success. There are at least three clinical studies demonstrating higher pregnancy rates in in vitro fertilization (IVF) patients when combined with acupuncture. Specifically, acupuncture is known to regulate reproductive hormones and provide women with more regular ovulation putting their monthly cycle on a more consistent track. Acupuncture also increases blood flow to the pelvic region providing nutrition and reproductive hormones.

Practised by naturopathic doctors, acupuncture uses very fine needles inserted into key body points to assist in regulating the nervous system, increasing blood flow, and facilitating equilibrium in the body. This can be especially important in women who are trying to conceive a baby.

Acupuncture is part of a larger fertility service offered by Mahaya Cambridge. Other fertility services include diagnostic testing, assessment of nutrient imbalances as well as natural approaches to rebalance hormones. Becoming pregnant and having a baby is a miracle, and one that needs to be treated with care and respect.
