Acupuncture treatment for fertility is becoming widely used, either as a stand-alone treatment, or integrated with in-vitro fertilization procedures. Depending upon the patient's symptoms, your practitioner will determine a pattern of disease and treat the infertility accordingly. Usually herbal medicinal therapy is prescribed before and during the pregnancy to assist in carrying the pregnancy to full-term.
Men may also encounter infertility problems, possibly due physical and emotional stress, or lack of nutrients. These conditions can result in a low sperm count, poor quality or mobility of the sperm. Depending upon the patient's symptoms, your practitioner will determine a pattern of disease and treat accordingly with acupuncture, nutrition, exercise and Chinese herbal formulas.
During pregnancy acupuncture can be used to greatly reduce morning sickness, edema, urinary problems, risk of miscarriage and associated maladies. In the same way, post-natal disorders, such as depression, water retention, constipation, hemorrhoids, breast pain and extreme fatigue can also be treated. Acupuncture techniques, along with nutritional and herbal therapy, will support the body by balancing and circulating Blood and Qi.
I recently brought my new baby girl to visit Opus Acupuncture. Thanks to the acupuncture treatments I had during my IVF treatments we have a beautiful little girl, Madalyn. Previous treatments without acupuncture were not successful. Now I have a great success story for my family, thanks to Opus Acupuncture. Thank you, thank you, thank you!Barbara J. Fertility
