Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can regulate the hormones in the body, improve the health of the ovaries, ova and the uterus, regulate ovulation, increase the receptivity and thickness of the endometrial lining, enhance the quality and quantity of fertile mucus, reduce sperm antibodies and hostile mucus, clear the Fallopian tubes and improve tubal function, address underlying blockages to fertility such as endometriosis, poly-cystic ovaries, fibroids.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can increase morphology, motility increasing overall quality of sperm. As well as increase overall energy levels, enhance libido, calming anxiety and improve general health.
It is best that both you and your partner attend the first consultation. Our practitioner will check your body by Chinese Traditional diagnosis methods (including tongue and pulse diagnosis, signs and symptoms) and then discuss the specific concerns with you to determine the most effective strategy to improve your chance of success.
Because of the complex nature of infertility, multiple treatments are needed to ensure optimal success. Infertility treatments vary from person to person, but are usually scheduled for at least twelve weeks (three consecutive cycles).
Efficacy can usually be seen within one to three courses. It is advised for those undergoing treatment to have patience and to understand that it takes time to get the body back into balance.
