Acupuncture for fertility
At Align 33 Chiropractic in Northridge California we provide acupuncture treatments to help with fertility. For some couples who are trying to get pregnant it isn’t always easy, and increasingly we are seeing couples who are seeking help with fertility. Acupuncture can be a more natural and less invasive alternative to other solutions. During your acupuncture treatment we will use fine sterile needles to help stimulate specific points on the body’s surface. These points are located on meridians that connect certain organ systems, which can be used to target and treat the reproductive system.
We encourage both partners to seek treatment
Whether you are aware or unaware of the cause of you and your partners struggle to reproduce we encourage both partners to seek treatment together. We are able to treat both partners with treatments that can encourage fertility and help increase your chances of falling pregnant. Not only is it physically beneficial to have both partners undergoing the same treatment but it is also a great way to support each other in what can be a difficult time for both of you.
Acupuncture for women looking to conceive has shown a multitude of benefits which have also helped with daily physical health. Acupuncture has shown to help regulate women’s menstrual cycle and overall health and wellbeing. Research has shown improved follicular development among female acupuncture patients along with lower stress levels.
Stress has been known to negatively affect sperm which may promote infertility in men. Through our relaxing and stress relieving acupuncture treatments we can help regulate this stress and potentially improve sperm count. Research has also shown success with sperm quality as a result of acupuncture as it works to address your overall health concerns and therefore the quality of your sperm.
Couples undergoing IVF
The most success we have seen is with couples who are undergoing In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). For couples undergoing IVF, research shows that acupuncture can improve the success of fertility by 40 – 60 per cent when administered before and after an embryo transfer. Both partners are involved with conceiving a baby which is why we encourage both parents or soon-to-be parents to partake in acupuncture treatments.
Consider a natural treatment…
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that focuses on the flow of energy and takes a holistic approach to your body’s overall wellbeing. We encourage couples to consider acupuncture and massage therapy as a natural and overall approach to your fertility needs. We also encourage patients to seek our services during and after pregnancy to ensure that their health is looked after and our soon-to-be parents are fit and healthy.
