The benefits of Acupuncture and TCM in treatment for the infertile couple can be found in early Chinese medical literature from 11AD. Not only do these techniques assist in regulating the menstrual cycle and invigorating the sperm, but they also address tubal adhesions, PCOS & endometriosis. Additionally, acupuncture also increases blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining.
In Chinese medicine there is a saying that one should “cultivate the soil before planting the seed.” By respecting that each and every organ has its own unique role to play in allowing our bodies to perform to the potential, we begin to understand that in order for our bodies to be able to reproduce and give life it needs to be balanced. While treatments with acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine can indeed improve your rate of success and help couples conceive within a relatively short period of time, it is more often the norm that it will take at least a few months (generally 3+ months) to achieve successful results. This is because the body needs time to return to a healthier state. This whole body approach is the key that unlocks unlimited potential in healing you.
