Infertility and Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical treatments in the world. TCM sees a person as an integrated mind/body organism by balancing the flow of energy and blood throughout the body.

 

By balancing one’s general health, natural conception as well as in vitro fertilization and artificial insemination procedures are more effective.

 

Acupuncture, when utilized with herbal medicine, has been used for centuries to treat infertility. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be used to treat certain causes of infertility.  Many patients benefit from this type of treatment because of the potential effect on improved ovarian and follicular function. As well, it is demonstrated that acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining.
