Acupuncture for 3 months or more can truly make a difference in the quality of eggs that are maturing. How? Increasing the amount of oxygen-rich blood flowing to the ovaries provides an abundance of building blocks necessary to create high-quality eggs.
Research shows acupuncture and herbal medicine are natural treatments to block the effects of chronic stress on our hormones, making a positive impact on AMH, FSH and LH levels. Balanced hormones create the best eggs and the optimal condition for implantation.
From PCOS to thyroid disorders, research shows acupuncture helps restart the menstrual cycle by balancing hormones, a key factor in reproduction. Acupuncture also builds blood by strengthening digestion to increase nutrient absorption from food and supplements. With the proper amount of blood we can increase circulation to get the cycle back on track.
Acupuncture’s ability to improve blood flow to the uterus brings increased nourishment that can create a thicker and more receptive lining. Our goal with our clients is to create a lining thickness of at least 8mm that has 3 distinct layers. This is the best possible environment for embryo implantation and ensuring enough nourishment to support a pregnancy full term.
Little known fact… cervical mucus is important! It changes as ovulation approaches, becoming a clear stretchy egg white consistency. Estrogen stimulates this change. Thankfully acupuncture balances hormones! It’s that change that creates a friendly environment for sperm and helps them swim into the fallopian tubes to meet the egg. When you see it, it’s date night!
During stress our body reduces energy to functions that aren’t necessary for immediate survival, like our reproductive system. The beautiful thing is research shows acupuncture blocks stress-induced reactions and click us into our parasympathetic nervous system where we rest, heal & make babies!
We support couples no matter where their journey takes them. For those using IVF, research shows acupuncture’s secret power also lies in its ability to slow down uterine contractions pre and post embryo transfer to increase the chances of a successful implantation.
