Female & Male Reproductive Treatment Methods

Our organization specializes in the therapy for infertility and other reproductive conditions – Male and female – using fertility acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and other tradtional Chinese medicine practices. Peer-reviewed analysis on Acupuncture and Infertility demonstrates that five potential physiological elements have been postulated because of its positive results:

  • Fertility Acupuncture may mediate the production of chemicals and stimulate the making of gonadotropin delivering hormone, thereby having an influence on menstrual cycles, ovulation and fertility.
  • Acupuncture may increase the circulation of blood to the Uterus, controlling uterine central sympathetic nerve activity.
  • Fertility Acupuncture may promote the creation of endogenous opiods, which can inhibit the neurological system output and the biological stress impulse.
  • Acupuncture may increase seratonin thresholds.
  • Fertility Acupuncture may beneficially impact cortisol and prolactin levels throughout the medication phase of IVF therapy with a pattern toward more fertile cycle characteristics.
