In-Vitro Pregnancy
Adding acupuncture to the treatment regimen of women having in vitro fertilization (IVF) may boost the chances of pregnancy. In a study of 160 women getting IVF, researchers from the Christian Lauritzen Institute in Ulm, Germany, used acupuncture before and after the embryo transfers in half the patients and found it helped increased the number of pregnancies.

The acupuncture-treated group received a treatment 25 minutes before and after the embryo transfer, with needles placed in stomach and colon meridians, as well as the ear meridians, to try to increase blood flow and energy to the uterus, and provide a sedative effect and stabilize the endocrine system. The control group had just the embryo transfer. The women in both groups were on average 32 years old and had undergone an average of two previous IVF cycles.

 
Pregnancy
Acupuncture has been shown in controlled scientific studies to be effective in helping treat male and female infertility problems.
A review of recent medical research suggests that acupuncture treatment may help improve your odds of fertility. It is estimated that infertility affects 1 in 10 or 10% of the population. Acupuncture is now being touted as a safe alternative to help improve the odds of conception. Acupuncture treatment research reveals that it helps relieve stress, regulate ovulation, and increase blood circulation to the reproductive tissues. Acupuncture is thought to stimulate certain areas of the brain (e.g. hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis) that are responsible for proper ovualtion. Also, it is reported that acupuncture nourishes the endometrium, the interior lining of the uterus. This makes the embryo more likely to become implated in the uterus wall after conception.

Help comes with the needles.....
        Facts
  • All needles are stainless steel, pre-sterilized, single-use, and disposable.
  • Needles are about the size of three strands of hair.
  • Listing symptoms may not be helpful, since the body, mind and spirit always work as one.
  • Patients are treated as unique individuals and not treated as "their disease".
  • Healing times vary according to each individual.
How It Works
According to classical Chinese teachings, channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up. Needles applied at specific acupuncture points unblock the obstructions and re-establish the regular flow through the meridians.
