Acupuncture is the go to treatment for those wishing to optimise natural conception or support IVF.
Emma and her experienced team know how to use this ancient therapy to very best effect, often in combination with nutrition and lifestyle advice and/or alongside conventional medical treatment. A growing body of scientific research now supports the efficacy of acupuncture, in particular as a complementary therapy for those going through IVF or other assisted fertility treatments – a recent trial demonstrated a doubling of IVF success rates when acupuncture was used.
Comments Emma, “The aim of the acupuncturist is to create balance and harmony in the body in order to optimise health and wellbeing. We know that acupuncture releases endorphins which are nature’s pain relieving messengers.
It may also help reduce the discomfort many women experience during fertility treatment. An added benefit is that many patients report feeling calmer, which can only be a positive during what can be a very stressful time."
Men can also benefit from using acupuncture prior to and during IVF, particularly if there is male factor infertility or they have high stress levels. Many men enjoy being involved in the process and find acupuncture helps them relax.
