The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to enhancing fertility is to strengthen the entire system, with special focus on the reproductive system, so that the patient’s body and overall health are at their peak. This increases the chances of achieving and sustaining a healthy pregnancy. This is likened to tilling the soil before planting the seed.
AccuFertility (acupuncture for fertility) uses one of the key Traditional Chinese Medicine approaches which are to promote the free flow of qi in the meridian system to strengthen the overall health and wellbeing of the reproductive system.
Acupuncture can safely be used prior to and concurrently with fertility medications and procedures such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Studies have shown that acupuncture calms the nervous system, improves blood flow through the pelvic region and may improve pregnancy rates when used in conjunction with IVF.
