Ready for the pitter-patter of tiny feet? Acupuncture lends a helping hand to your pregnancy from start to finish.
If you have been having difficulty conceiving, or you just want the best possible odds for your pregnancy, acupuncture is a safe, non-invasive and easy way to potentially increase your chances of getting and staying pregnant.
How does acupuncture do this? Acupuncture has been used for centuries to help cure fertility problems by encouraging follicle production, improving blood circulation in the uterus (which creates a more welcoming environment for the embryo), improving uterine lining thickness and egg quality, treating menstrual cycle disorders and improving overall health, which can help you more easily conceive and remain pregnant.
Acupuncture isn’t just for hopeful mothers. Dads-to-be can benefit from acupuncture, too. One of the most beneficial ways acupuncture treatments increase fertility is by reducing stress. When people are under stress, the hormone cortizol is released in the brain, which alters the brain’s neurochemical balance, which changes hormone levels and disrupts the pituitary balance that is key to the reproductive cycle. Stress can alter sperm counts, motility, and cause impotence.
Acupuncture infertility treatments counter the effects of stress and cortizol, and can have a positive effect on sperm production and quality, without causing any changes in behavior or sexual desire. Acupuncture can lead to significant increases in the number of normal sperm and equally significant reductions in structural defects.
Acupuncture can be used to treat any type of fertility disorder. Acupuncture works at stimulating the hypothalamus to effectively balance the endocrine system and its hormones and to get to the root cause of both male and female infertility. Acupuncture infertility treatments also have the added bonus of producing few or no side effects.
Give yourself and your baby the best possible start. A nice flow of endorphins, stress reduction, a healthy body, balance — acupuncture is effective, relaxing, painless and gentle. Here’s to happy, healthy babies!
