Fertility Acupuncture : How It Can Help You

One of the biggest disappointments that we can experience as a married couple is the inability to conceive a child. Even though we may try month after month, for some of us it is just a difficult thing to accomplish. If you are having a difficult time with conception and you don’t necessarily want to go through IVF or you are under taking IVF and want to increase the success rate, acupuncture may be able to offer you a natural treatment that has helped many. 

What Is Acupuncture? 

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical procedure in which the body’s energy is brought back into balance. Through the stimulation of acupuncture points with the use of very fine needles, this life energy is sent throughout the body through various channels. Whenever we experience an imbalance in our body as a result of this energy leaning towards the positive or the negative, it can display itself in a number of different ways. For some, it displays as pain or disease but for others, it may show up as an inability to conceive a child.
Studies that have been done on acupuncture have shown that whenever certain areas of the body are stimulated through treatment, it does increase the amount of energy and blood flow to the targeted area. This can have a great impact on us in many different ways. If you are having a difficult time in producing the sperm and eggs that are necessary in order to conceive a child, giving these areas of our body additional blood flow may be exactly what is needed in order to produce an adequate supply. It may also be that by increasing the balance within our body and bringing ourselves into a more natural state, we give our bodies the ability to heal any problems that we may be experiencing in these areas.


Of course, many individuals also try in vitro fertilisation in order to produce children and this can be stimulated by acupuncture as well. As a matter of fact, in several tests that were conducted, those people who were going through in vitro fertilisation and using acupuncture increased their odds of conception by 10% or more when compared with those who were only going through IVF alone. Acupuncture can certainly help you to bring your body into a balanced condition. It may also be a double to assist your body in healing itself and producing what is necessary in order for you to conceive a child.
