Traditional Chinese medicine has treated infertility for 3000 years. Its approach is simple yet sophisticated. Bring back into balance that which is out of balance. Through the use of acupuncture, herbs and diet balance is returned to the network of organs, hormones and energy systems that govern reproduction.

How does acupuncture affect fertility?
Acupuncture treats the root cause of infertility such as irregular menstruation, amenorrhea, endometriosis and heavy bleeding. Research over the past 20 years indicates that the stimulation exerted by an acupuncture needle triggers the release of prostaglandins which stimulate production of chemicals in the nerve endings which in turn transmit a message to the hypothalamus. Located at the base of the brain, the hypothalamus is the regulatory center for all hormonal activity. It controls the discharge of gonadotropin releasing hormones which govern ovulation, menstruation and pregnancy.

Balancing hypothalamic function and regulating the release of hormonal substances with acupuncture addresses many of the causes of infertility.

Research has shown that acupuncture treatment before and after IVF increases the success rate of a THB (take home baby).

At the Center for Acupuncture we are interested in being your ally and assisting you in this process, whether you are pursuing medical options or conceiving naturally. Call for an appointment for a free consultation to answer any specific questions you may have.
