Fertility

Fertility AcupunctureSymptoms associated with reproductive health start in a girls teens – painful periods, heavy periods, irregular periods, no periods – all signs that there may be an imbalance that needs addressing.

Diagnosing the underlying problem is the key to successful treatment and by using a combination of acupuncture and reflexology diagnostic skills I am able to detect specific areas that may need addressing.

Regulating and maintaining a healthy menstrual cycle is crucial to a woman’s fertility when wanting to conceive and whether a couple are able to conceive naturally or when medical intervention is necessary, acupuncture and reflexology may play a significant role.

Because the hormonal component of a women’s fertility is so closely related to her sense of emotional well-being; it is more important than ever to take a holistic approach.

Zita West Affiliated Practitioner

As a Zita West Affiliated Acupuncture Practitioner I am able to access the very latest research and recommendations from some of the countries leading consultants. I am also able to offer discounts on many of her products and services at www.zitawest.com

 

Treatment Protocols

Treatment protocols are tailored to each individual. As a general rule acupuncture will initially be required weekly for around four weeks and then spaced out to monthly maintenance treatments.

During assisted fertility I usually advise treatment prior to the start of the cycle, then two times during simulation, pre and post transfer and again around 7 to 10 days after transfer.

There is a growing body of research evidence which shows that acupuncture can help:

  • Regulate the menstrual cycle
  • Boost ovulation and balance hormones
  • Improve pelvic blood flow
  • Increase endometrial lining
  • Release endorphins which reduce stress
  • Improve concentration and motility of sperm
  • Lower levels of FSH
  • Relieve symptoms of endometriosis
  • Induce ovulation in women with PCOS
