Fertility & IVF Acupuncture

Whether you’re thinking of trying soon or you’ve been trying for a while, fertility acupuncture offers a unique approach to preconception planning. Acupuncture works by stimulating nerve endings deep below the surface of the skin.

By manipulating the needles in conjunction with gentle electrical stimulation, your nerves are activated, helping you body release substances called endorphins. This can have postive effects on fertility including relieving stress that may be weighing you down. 


Can Acupuncture help you get pregnant?

Studies suggest that acupuncture women who tried acupuncture before and after IVF were more likely to get pregnant. Along with diet and nutrition, a complete approach to fertility may be the key to increasing the chances of a healthy pregancy.

Fertility Health

In Canada, roughly 1 in 6 couples experience infertility. This number has doubled since the 1980’s. The natural follow-up to that fact is the “Why?”; what has changed in our global environment to so drastically increase infertility rates? Unsurprisingly, the answer is not as straightforward as one might hope. Many scientists point to the increase in more sedentary lifestyles over the past several decades. Researchers also point to environmental factors such as increased air pollutants and chemicals in consumer products. It may be several more decades before any theory is proved conclusively, but all camps seem to agree that infertility is trending up. But you’re not alone.
