Support Conception, Shorten Labor, Speed Postpartum Recovery
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the mind, the body, and the spirit are one. You are a complete and complex individual with a unique constitution. What establishes being in balance for you is entirely different from balance for someone else. There’s no such thing as perfect health. But there is better health. And better health means better fertility. You hold the power to attain it.
Acupuncture care is a very good approach for fertility. It improves blood flow to the uterus and the reproductive system. This has been shown to promote implantation of embryos, especially during IVF.
Acupuncture reduces stress by raising levels of stress-coping hormones such as cortisol and prolactin, increasing the chance of fertilization and implantation. Acupuncture regulates menstruation and ovulation. That includes beginning and ending your period in a timely and correct manner and making sure your flow is smooth and unhindered, without large clots and without excessive cramps. Acupuncture helps to strengthen your ovulatory functions and building uterine lining quality. It also gets rid of underlying inflammation and solicits immunological balance. Best of all, acupuncture has minimal side effects, and in a skilled hand, is virtually pain-free.
Published research studies have shown significant increases in IVF regnancy rates with the use of acupuncture treatments conjunctively. Our clinic used to be located in the Foothills Professional Building, same as the Calgary Regional Fertility Clinic. We have designed a protocol for the use of acupuncture during IVF that has helped many.
