According to the American Fertility Society, infertility is defined as the condition of a couple having one year of regular intercourse without contraception and being unable to conceive. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine can be used alone or in combination with Western medicine to address infertility. It can best treat those cases in which infertility is caused by hormonal problems, immune disorders, amenorrhea, irregular menstrual cycles, and stress.
Medical research has found acupuncture and Oriental Medicine to be beneficial to couples trying to conceive because of its influence in the following areas.
Improving blood flow to the uterus, thus enhancing the likelihood of ovum implantation.
Invigorating sperm and enhancing sperm count and motility.
Reducing stress and anxiety and the associated hormones that can promote infertility.
Balancing the endocrine system and regulating the hormones involved in ovulation.
Regulating the menstrual cycle.
According to Oriental Medical theory, when Qi (chee), or Life Energy, and blood are flowing freely throughout the body, cells, tissues and organs can be properly nourished and can function optimally. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine increases a woman’s fertility and health by affecting the quality, quantity and balance of Qi and blood.
Acupuncture helps us achieve balance and control, comfort and focus, and joy in living. We have a lot of potential in our bodies but at times it can be misguided. The needles are very slender. They are about the thickness of two human hairs. Treatments are always carried out with sterile and disposable needles. They are used once and then discarded. All needles are approved by the FDA. Most insertions are just beneath the skin`s surface which enables the skilled acupuncture practitioner to place a needle with little or no sensation. We have great success in helping clients apply acupuncture to help with their infertility.
