Expecting - pregnant belly

The treatment of infertility with acupuncture and TCM dates back 2,000 years. These ancient, time-tested techniques improve fertility rates and support a woman’s whole body, unlocking unlimited potential for health, healing and childbearing.


A landmark study published in the medical journal Fertility & Sterility found that acupuncture dramatically improves the chances of becoming pregnant when used in conjunction with other assisted reproductive techniques. Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York reviewed studies and concluded that acupuncture helps:


Increase blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the uterine wall

Reduce anxiety, stress and the hormones that are secreted during stressful situations that can significantly decrease fertility

Normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome

Positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a key role in fertility

Regulate the menstrual cycle


In a study published in Human Reproduction Journal ,an ultrasound was used to evaluate blood flow to the uterus during acupuncture treatment. The study found blood flow increases during treatment. According to Dr. Nacy Snyderman, “When acupuncture needles are placed correctly, it can affect the nervous system.


The idea is that if you stimulate the nervous system, you can make the uterus quiet and allow blood to flow.” Relaxing the uterus and increasing blood flow allows for the successful implant of an embryo within the uterine lining. Another study appearing in the British Medical Journal concluded that acupuncture can be offered as a significant, clinically relevant adjunct to in vitro fertilization.


Acupuncture and TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine, can raise the fertility potential for women.
