Of all the areas in my practice, fertility work is the most rewarding for both my patients and me. It’s gratifying to help a woman conceive and to bring new life into the world. However, it is difficult for many women to get pregnant, and this is where I can help.
Research shows that acupuncture is very effective, either in itself, or in conjunction with modern fertility treatments. There are many causes of infertility: amenorrhea, irregular menses, menorrhagia, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome and hormonal irregularities. I have successfully treated them all.
Acupuncture benefits fertility by naturally regulating the body’s systems, most notably the reproductive system. It helps increase blood flow to the reproductive organs and balance hormone levels. It improves ovarian function in women and sperm production in men.
I also supplement my practice with Chinese herbal medicine, which works synergistically with acupuncture to improve reproductive processes in both men and women. It has a long tradition and has been used effectively for thousands
All of the women I have helped to conceive have continued with acupuncture during their pregnancies. Not only does acupuncture minimize the risk of miscarriage, it keeps the pregnant mother healthy and nurtures the growing baby. Furthermore, acupuncture minimizes morning sickness, back pain and fatigue that can often be a part of a healthy pregnancy. After labor and delivery, acupuncture can remedy the post-partum bleeding, depression, low back pain and fatigue that often affect a new mother.
