Fertility and Acupuncture
For many years now I have been providing bespoke treatments to clients referred to me who seek fertility assistance. From experience with my clients it is fair to say that they report that acupuncture and combined reflexology pre IVF has considerably improved the womb lining in almost all cases. Clients report that it has also helped with their FSH levels .
Acupuncture is becoming increasingly recognised as beneficial to individuals with functional infertility. Acupuncture can have a profound effect on the sympathetic nervous system, and this can be used to improveimprove blood flow in the uterus, which has been shown to increase the likelihood of success with in vitro fertilization (IVF).
There are many schools of thought around the reported success that reflexology has in assisting with fertility treatments and the positives are so many that it is also worth considering .
Whilst Acupuncture and Reflexology may considerably improve conception success rates for some individuals undergoing IVF treatments and this route is now often suggested in conjunction with and prior to IVF treatments .
The Majority of my clients attending for fertility treatments (both acupuncture and reflexology) have since become proud parents but obviously I cant guarantee success !
Of particular interest is the number of clients who attend my practice who may be experiencing difficulties conceiving and are considering IVF or IUI treatment. On a number of occassions these clients have gone on to conceive naturally and my belief is that all they needed was the relaxation and balancing of mind and body provided by attending for various treatments.
Acupuncture may improve your general health, helping alleviate underlying conditions preventing conception. Reducing stress is recognised as a considerable positive factor.
Acupuncture for Fertility is not soley for the fairer sex, for men it can also assist in improving sperm concentration, volume, and motility.
