Health benefits of acupuncture

Acupuncture offers a variety of health benefits from boosting immunity and promoting relaxation to offering instant pain relief from chronic back and neck aches. Undergoing acupuncture sessions once a week can promote sleep and help individuals overcome insomnia.

It also improves energy levels in men and women and helps decrease musculoskeletal pains significantly. Furthermore, acupuncture helps treat frequent headaches and improves mood in individuals battling anxiety and depression.

How does acupuncture for fertility work?

There are several options for women struggling with infertility issues like drugs, surgery, in vitro fertilization (IVF), and donor eggs and embryos. However, not all can afford the financial costs associated with advanced procedures like Intrauterine insemination and IVF. Our fertility specialist in NYC uses traditional Chinese medicine in conjunction with western fertility medicine to create a highly rewarding acupuncture treatment program.

There is a natural balance between the hypothalamus, pituitary, and reproductive glands in a woman's body. Mental stress can impair this delicate balance and prevent a woman from ovulating properly and lead to female infertility problems. Stress can create spasms in the fallopian tubes, the uterus, and negatively affect the movement and implantation of a fertilized egg in women. Acupuncture for fertility reduces physical and mental stress significantly by releasing endorphins in the brain. Also, unlike conventional pharmaceutical drugs and medical treatments, acupuncture does not produce any side-effects in women. 

How many acupuncture sessions do I need for fertility?

The number of sessions that you will require depends on your situation, medical needs, and a couple of other factors. If you are trying to conceive a baby, you should appear for your acupuncture session at least once in the follicular phase, ovulation phase, and the implantation phase. This means that you must attend one session a week throughout your cycle, except for the week when you are menstruating (3-4 sessions a month).

If you are currently on an IVF cycle, it is important to start acupuncture at least 6-7 weeks before transfer. We request our IVF clients to appear for treatment twice a week, once they are on their stimulation medications. By beginning acupuncture treatments at least two months before conception/ transfer, we can improve the quality of your egg, and correct any issues with your cycle and other lining irregularities. With the help of acupuncture, we also address any nutritional concerns, reduce stress, and boost immunity and prepare your body and mind for a healthy pregnancy.
