Based on thousands of years of Chinese Medicine practice, acupuncture offers a drug-free way to treat a variety of health issues and it can effectively address a wide range of conditions affecting both general and reproductive health.
Acupuncture complements extremely well the naturopathic basis of our Conception Program and IVF Support Program. It has been shown in clinical trials that acupuncture can improve not only the success rate of an IVF cycle but also the wellbeing of women undergoing an IVF cycle.
During an IVF cycle, acupuncture can have the following benefits:
- decrease anxiety levels associated with fertility issues
- improve embryo implantation rates
- prepare the uterine lining by increasing blood supply to the uterus
- improve hormone levels and sperm quality
Both men and women with fertility issues or undergoing IVF treatment would benefit from a course of acupuncture treatments.
