Fertility Issues and IVF support for Women, Men and Couples

Fertility acupuncture has physiological effect of balancing the body’s energy. A regular healthy menstrual cycle and a healthy body that is stress and pain free is the goal of many women who are planning to conceive. We aim to support you on your fertility journey by balancing your body's energy systems and optimising energy flow from the areas of stagnation to areas that need it most. The acupuncture meridians relate to different organs and we chose points according to your individual Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis.  In TCM theory Kidney weakness is usually the most common underlying factor for women with infertility. Many health practitioners may recommend acupuncture as an adjunct treatment that may assist with IVF treatment. There is continuing research about how acupuncture can assist with the effectiveness of IVF treatment and you should consult your treating practitioner/s about how acupuncture may be able to help you as a women, man or couple.
