Traditional Chinese Medicine practices have been used for thousands of years to treat fertility. Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, and balancing the endocrine system. Acupuncture also provides more efficient blood flow to the ovaries and the uterus to enhance fertility.
It is never too early to begin treatment, whether you think there is an issue or whether you have received a medical diagnosis.
Fertility is not just about the ability to conceive. Fertility also includes
- painful and heavy periods
- irregular cycles and ovulation
- mood changes
- food cravings
- hormonal fluctuations.
Acupuncture can also help with
- polycystic ovarian syndrome
- high or low hormone levels.
These symptoms are signs that the energy flow through a woman’s body is imbalanced. Acupuncture helps restore the proper energy balance in the body. Many of the above symptoms are eliminated or at least decreased with regular acupuncture treatments.
