Acupuncture for Unexplained Infertility
If you are one of the 10% of couples that have been labelled as having Unexplained Infertility you will know that this can be a very frustrating diagnosis, especially as it often comes after months of trying to conceive.
Once in the system of medical appointments and tests your stress levels may rise...
This makes it harder to conceive. Timing sex to optimise your chances, can cause a lack of spontaneity and can crush the creative process of conception.
Acupuncture can help...
We have a great deal of experience using Chinese Medicine diagnostic procedures to provide a clear diagnosis, with which we are able to stimulate the change needed to enable conception.
"Chinese Medicine can offer you a different perspective and, in most cases, we are able to provide valuable insight."
Alongside this acupuncture increases endorphins, the body natural feel good hormones. These counteract the effects of stress hormones, promoting health and reproduction.
How much treatment do I need?
Treatment is recommended about every 1 to 2 weeks, while you have symptoms.
Depending on the nature of the issue, as health is restored, you may be advised to have treatment from time-to-time to keep your system working well.
Where do the needles go?
We generally use a combination of ‘local’ and ‘distal’ points.
‘Local’ points are on located near the site of any issues we wish to address. ‘Distal’ points are on your arms and legs (below your elbows and knees) that influence the circulation through the entire length of the Channels and Network Vessels.
I will always discuss what points I am going to use first and make sure that you feel comfortable.
