Acupuncture for Treatment of Infertility

Friends & Family Acupuncture has experienced a very high success rate at treating infertility. In fact, 80% (8 out of every 10) of our clients experience successful conception.

Our clients come to us with a range of personal goals. Some seek acupuncture when other treatment methods for infertility have failed, some receive acupuncture in conjunction with Western approaches, and others simply want to prepare their bodies for a healthy pregnancy. Whatever the reason, acupuncture is both safe and beneficial at any stage of reproduction.

Our Approach

We should mention that it is ideal to treat both partners for infertility. However, we have seen more often that it is a female partner that undergoes acupuncture treatment. During your first visit we learn about your reproductive history, including your menstrual cycle and any irregularities, history of miscarriages, attempted pregnancies and more.

In Chinese medicine, there are several root causes of infertility. The combination of learning about your history, and performing pulse and tongue assessments enable us to confidently identify and treat the root cause(s).

Treatments for infertility may include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Chinese herbal medicine
  • Moxibustion
  • Cupping

For best results, we recommend weekly treatment for at least three full menstrual cycles. This way, we can measure menstrual irregularities and adjust treatments accordingly.
