Acupuncture as a complementary therapy for fertility treatments


HealthMax Physiotherapy Clinics in Brampton offers contemporary medical acupuncture treatments as a complementary therapy approach in improving the possibility of success for fertility treatments.

As a respected age-old approach to health, modern-day studies have shown that acupuncture can have a positive effect on optimizing factors for fertility.

These effects occur from a number of perspectives: through improving the flow of body energy, by increasing the production of endorphins in the brain, and by improving the connection between reproductive organs (hypothalamus, pituitary glands, ovaries) and the brain to have a positive effect on healthy egg production and ovulation. Essentially, acupuncture can help the body to function more efficiently, allowing reproductive treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) to work more effectively.

Acupuncture treatments, carried out at different stages and with varying approaches — prior to, or based on each stage of fertility treatments — can produce such beneficial outcomes as:

  • Relieving some side effects of fertility medications
  • Providing assistance with balancing hormone levels in order to help regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle
  • Promoting ovulation and the production of a larger number of follicles and quality eggs
  • Improving the blood flow to the lining of the uterus, helping to facilitate a richer, healthier environment in preparation for IVF or donor-egg transfer

As an additional advantage, acupuncture can be calming and restorative, providing a welcome sense of relaxation and well-being during what can potentially be a stressful and emotional time.

Medical fertility acupuncture treatments should be carried out by a trained, licensed acupuncturist who has experience in treating fertility challenges and who works in harmony with your obstetrician or fertility specialist to ensure that your acupuncture and fertility treatment regimens are carried out safely and effectively.
