Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine offers prospective mums a natural and holistic way to address imbalances in the body that may be contributing to fertility issues, and in combination with diet, exercise and other healthy lifestyle practices, Acupuncture can help support the body through this process. There are many reasons why pregnancy may not be occurring naturally, and Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be a wonderful way to support the mind and body throughout this time.
In clinic, understanding and caring support will be provided to assist you in tracking your cycle, identifying ovulation and therefore, your optimum times to conceive. Your treatments will aim to encourage:
- hormonal balance for quality egg and endometrial lining development
- timely ovulation
- safe and secure implantation
- building and balancing your body systems to help your body maintain a healthy, viable pregnancy
Traditional Chinese Medicine assesses the body in relation to the balance of Qi and Blood, Yin and Yang, and utilises Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine to address any deficiencies in the body, ensure the free flow of Qi and Blood to allow easy passage for little embryos, and ease emotional stress which too often thwarts our best intentions.
Traditional Chinese Medicine can also offer support to address the issue of male infertility. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can be helpful as part of a regime to address low sperm count or poor sperm motility, loss of libido or erectile dysfunction. Fatigue and stress can also affect male fertility, and optimal health of both partners is of course best for the greatest chance at a viable pregnancy.
