Acupuncture for Fertility Support
Acupuncture for fertility support can help those trying to conceive naturally and those who are undergoing assisted conception treatments.
PMT, period pains, endometriosis or PCOS, fertility, pregnancy and menopause are all manifestations of the female experience.
Acupuncture can treat at root level rather than masking the symptoms with medication, thus re-establishing hormonal balance in the woman’s cycle.
It can be life changing for some women to be able to reduce or eliminate symptoms genealogical pain from their life, enabling them to feel much more at ease throughout their monthly cycle.
Painful periods are addressed with the stimulation of acupuncture points which strongly move the uterine blood flow. This can help to relax the uterus reducing the contractions which cause painful cramps as well as clearing away old blood.
Overtime, many women report that their menstrual blood changes from a darker red to a brighter colour with a regular and balanced flow.
To help natural conception
- Fertility acupuncture regulates the hormone system.
- Treatments help to direct blood flow to the reproductive organs.
- Acupuncture points are chosen based on the woman’s menstrual cycle (This is key for women trying to conceive naturally. Acupuncturists like to treat throughout the woman’s cycle.)
An important note to consider is that it takes three months to build an egg. This means that patients should plan to schedule a minimum of three months of acupuncture treatments for optimum results.
Acupuncture should be considered as a treatment in combination with proper nutrition. I would always take a good look at your diet and offer nutritional advice in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.
Are you thinking of trying acupuncture for fertility issues?
I recommend that you use an acupuncturist that is registered with an accredited professional body such as The British Acupuncture Association because members of the BAA are guaranteed to have completed full training to degree level and will be covered by most private health insurers.
