Can Acupuncture help with fertility?
Acupuncture is like a little bootcamp to get your body in the best possible shape to conceive and carry a child to full term.Healthy bodies lead to healthy babies , your probably wondering how can this help? Acupuncture can boost fertility by increasing blood flow to the uterus which creates a better uterine lining and a regulation of reproductive hormones.TCM balances & restores the Qi (body’s energy) by decreasing the inflammatory process your egg follicles develops properly and also gives you better quality eggs. If there’s inflammatory issues going on then this can disrupt the balance of progesterone and oestrogen, which may possibly interfere with implantation of the embryo.
Also a number of studies demonstrated that acupuncture can boost the success rates of women undergoing IVF. Fertility is just about the most emotional thing a woman will go through, so we talk about all aspects of their lives and their mood. Our goal at Soulqi is to bring the body to balance (Homeostasis).
How many treatments? Each person is very different but I like you to invest a period of 6-12 months of weekly sessions. It’s not a quick fix, we need to work together with often a combination of Acupuncture, Chinese Patent Herbs and Practitioners only supplements.
Fertility support with Acupuncture also extends further than pre conception support into pregnancy support and balance, assisting with morning sickness, and even induction.
