Acupuncture has been gaining increasing recognition as a complementary therapy for infertility and fertility treatment. Infertility can be caused by many factors, and acupuncture works to address these factors by balancing the body's life energy, or qi, to improve overall health and increase the chances of pregnancy.

Stress is a significant factor that can affect fertility and can be self-perpetuating when conception fails to occur. Acupuncture, as a holistic therapy, can address multiple health issues simultaneously, improving the body's natural balance and potentially increasing the chances of pregnancy.

Combining the knowledge of both Chinese and Western medicine, our unique complimentary therapy methods have shown to give our patients significantly better results than single approaches. For example, our acupuncture therapy has been shown to increase the IVF fertilization rate by 4-10 times, improve sperm motility from 30% to 90% in three days, and reduce sperm cell DNA damage.

We develop individualized fertility acupuncture plans based on medical research to optimize the chances of success. Recent research has shown that acupuncture during embryo transfer can double fertility rates. Furthermore, a review of 24 trials and over 5,800 participants found that acupuncture improves clinical pregnancy rates and live birth rates among women undergoing IVF.

The key to achieving optimal results with acupuncture is to start treatment early, before IVF, and to continue through the IVF cycle. Our treatment plan includes at least four sessions of acupuncture, with appropriate timing around the time of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation or oocyte aspiration.

If you are struggling with infertility, we encourage you to consider acupuncture as a complementary therapy to improve your chances of having a baby. Our experienced acupuncturists can work with you to develop an individualized plan that meets your specific needs and goals.
