“I wanted to let you know that I gave birth to a baby girl….After trying for so long to have her she is our little miracle and I want to thank you for the acupuncture and advice which I believe helped the IVF work first time. I was very lucky and had a good pregnancy with no sickness which I put down to your advice regarding nutrition as I think my body was well prepared for getting pregnant.” K.S. Barnet
Acupuncture & Fertility
Trying to have a baby is not always as straight forward as it may seem for many couples. Acupuncture has a long history in fertility and preparing the body for a healthy pregnancy.
Having acupuncture regularly can help reduce stress and anxiety which is often a big factor in a couple’s difficulty to conceive. Stress can affect hormonal balance and the menstrual cycle. Acupuncture helps to reduce stress due to its beta-endorphin release and calming effect on the sympathetic nervous system, as well as boosting blood flow to the reproductive organs.
Acupuncture helps to improve general well-being, creating a less stressful environment for fertility and pregnancy.
Treatment of fertility also includes Chinese dietary advice which includes specific foods to enhance your overall health based on your Chinese Medicine diagnosis.
Acupuncture & IVF
When undergoing IVF, acupuncture can help manage stress and reduce its effects on the body, address any underlying health issues that may be affecting fertility and help manage any side effects from medication.
Acupuncture and Postnatal Recovery
Acupuncture can also be used to help new mothers too. The early weeks and months following the birth can be very demanding both emotionally and physically. Acupuncture can be very beneficial to relieve back ache, exhaustion, as well as to help you to relax and rebuild your energy levels.
