Fertility - Essence Acupuncture Wellness - East Asian Medicine Healthcare


What is acupuncture for fertility? Evidence has shown acupuncture to be an effective treatment option for addressing infertility by balancing hormones, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, and regulating stress. Acupuncture is also a great component to incorporate in conjunction with IVF or other fertility treatments as it can provide additional support to the body as well as help strengthen the chances of getting pregnant and obtaining a healthy pregnancy.

Recurrent miscarriages

Having a miscarriage can be traumatic both mentally and physically on the body. Acupuncture and herbal medicine help target the root cause of recurrent miscarriages by focusing on the menstrual cycle, hormone levels, and identifying potential issues with fertility in both partners. Factors such as PCOS, endometriosis, or hormonal imbalances may result in complications during pregnancy. Acupuncture and integrative treatments can help balance the body and support the reproductive system to encourage a healthy, sustainable pregnancy. Treatment is recommended before and during pregnancy so that the body is properly equipped for conception and has the support to carry to full-term.

When should I expect results after receiving acupuncture for Infertility/ IVF?

It depends. It can be as little as 1 month to a year depending on your body’s condition. Our best success is seen in the 3-6 month range for Fertility/IVF  treatments. Using acupuncture and herbs during cycles of IVF or IUI we aim to strengthen and bring balance to the reproductive organs. Whether due to structural or emotional related issues, acupuncture and herbs promote the body to generate vital energy and increased blood flow to those organs in order to achieve optimal function.

Do infertility acupuncture treatments only help females?

No. In fact, the best results come from treating both the female and the male. There is a misconception that infertility is mainly due to the female inability to produce; however, it is important to strengthen both the womb and the seed. We recommend both male and female partners to receive fertility treatments to achieve the best results. Many women are delighted to find that regulating their cycle alleviates other seemingly unrelated issues, like digestion problems, fatigue, acne, or even excess weight. Luckily, acupuncture and herbs can be extremely effective at balancing hormones and bringing the entire body back into optimal health.
