How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical practice in which the body’s energy is brought back into balance.  With the stimulation of acupuncture points on the body with the use of very fine needles, this life energy (or chi) is sent throughout the body through various channels.  When we have a lack of balance in our body as a result of this energy it can display itself in a number of different ways.  For some, it displays as pain or disease but unfortunately for others, it may show up as an inability to conceive a child.

Benefits for Fertility

Many studies that have been done on acupuncture that have shown that when particular channels of the body are stimulated in acupuncture treatments, there is a significant increase in the amount of energy and blood flow to the targeted area.  This can have a great beneficial impact on us in many different ways.  If we are having a difficult time in producing the sperm and eggs that are necessary in order to conceive a child, giving these areas of our body additional blood flow and energy may be exactly what is needed in order to produce an adequate supply and healing.  Acupuncture can also increase the balance within our body and bring ourselves into a more natural state.  Our bodies will have the ability to heal any problems that we may be experiencing in these areas.

IVF

Of course, many individuals also try in vitro fertilization in order to produce children and this can be stimulated by acupuncture as well.  As a matter of fact, in several research studies that were conducted, those who were going through in vitro fertilization and also using acupuncture increased their odds of conception by 10% or more when compared with those who were only going through IVF alone.

Acupuncture can definitely help you to bring your body back into a balanced state.  It can also assist your body in healing itself and start producing what is required for you to conceive a child.
