Fertility

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that has been used for thousands of years to treat various health conditions, including fertility issues. By stimulating specific points on the body, acupuncture can help to restore balance and improve overall health, potentially enhancing fertility.

How Acupuncture Can Potentially Help with Fertility

1. Enhancing Blood Flow to Reproductive Organs: Acupuncture has been shown increase blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, creating a more favourable environment for egg implantation. Improved blood circulation can also enhance the quality of the endometrial lining, which is crucial for a successful pregnancy.

2. Balancing Hormones: Hormonal imbalances can disrupt the menstrual cycle and ovulation. Acupuncture could help with the regulation of the endocrine system, promoting hormonal balance. This regulation helps in stabilising hormone levels, improving ovulation, and increasing the chances of conception.

3. Reducing Stress: Stress can negatively impact fertility by causing hormonal imbalances and irregular menstrual cycles. Acupuncture promotes relaxation and reduces stress levels by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators. This relaxation effect can be particularly beneficial for those undergoing fertility treatments.

4. Supporting IVF and Other Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART): For patients undergoing In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) or other assisted reproductive technologies, acupuncture can be a supportive therapy. Studies suggest that acupuncture performed before and after embryo transfer may improve pregnancy rates by enhancing blood flow to the uterus and reducing uterine contractions.

What to Expect During an Acupuncture Session

Initial Consultation: Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation. Our acupuncturist will review your medical history, discuss your fertility concerns, and perform a traditional Chinese medicine assessment to determine the best treatment approach tailored to your needs.

Personalised Treatment Plan: Based on the initial consultation, a personalised treatment plan will be created. This plan may include regular acupuncture sessions, dietary recommendations, and lifestyle advice to support your fertility journey.

The Acupuncture Session: During a session, thin, sterile needles are gently inserted into specific points on the body. These points are selected based on their ability to influence reproductive health and overall well-being. The procedure is typically painless, and many patients find it deeply relaxing. Sessions usually last around 45 minutes (initial session up to 1 hour).

Ongoing Support: Fertility acupuncture is most effective when performed regularly over a period of time. Our team will work with you to schedule ongoing sessions and provide continuous support throughout your fertility journey. ongoing care can also be offered through the pregnancy process.

Highly recommend this place! Alex has sorted so many problems for me, my only wish is I came here years ago instead of visiting other places. He always talks to you about what’s going on, gives some good instructions delivered on an app, and also looks at your daily habits to get a detailed view of what’s contributing to your issues. Thank you for helping me.

It was my first time to have Acupuncture. I felt relaxed from my first appointment with Sam Watson. The whole process was relaxing as I was not sure of how I would feel about needles. Having had 3 sessions so far, it’s been a great experience. Sam Watson is brilliant. The treatment is helping with my shoulder pain. Such a huge improvement on my overall health being. I highly recommend Parker & Jones Manual Therapy Clinic.

My partner suggested I visit her physio due to a long standing issue with my shoulder. I’m glad I did as my problem was diagnosed as also involving my chest, neck and back, which was causing my shoulder to be pulled out of line. Even though the path has at times been painful, I am on the way to recovery with my flexibility improving within my shoulder joint. Thank you Stacey Highly recommended

I've been seeing Karen for Deep Tissue Massage for over 12 months now. My back has improved greatly. I no longer have pain and now go regularly to ensure that my muscles are kept in a position where my bad posture doesn't cause me issues. I can't recommend Karen enough, very friendly and helpful. We value her input so much that most of my close family also visit her.

I cannot thank Alex enough for the excellent treatment and care I have recieved from him over the last 2 years. Alex is professional, approachable and a good listener. I have not been in the best of health over the last year, but Alex has been very supportive and encouraging throughout and now I am enjoying life again. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone seeking a first class practitioner.
