How Does Acupuncture Fertility Treatment Work?

Acupuncture is not a new therapy. This ancient medical practice has been in use since, time immemorial to treat a myriad of health conditions. During an acupuncture session, the doctor will place hair-thin needles along the meridians in the body that are said to correspond to different organs of the body. These specific points where needles are inserted are said to stimulate the flow of vital energy. The needles act as a lightning bolt and tap into the body’s reserve of bioelectrical energy. This enables the transmission of a message from the acupuncture points to the brain through the meridian pathway. The brain responds to this message by releasing endorphins and neurotransmitters to the pain blockage areas. It also helps in opening up blood flow and reduces inflammation dramatically.

Doctors believe that an increase in blood flow by acupuncture helps to boost fertility by stimulating the woman’s ovaries to release healthy eggs. Acupuncture also helps to improve the health of the endometrial lining in the uterus that protects and care for the fetus. Acupuncture treatments in Santa Rosa also aid relaxation of the uterus walls, and curbs contractions, which in turn ensures improved blood circulation so that the embryo gets implanted successfully. That is not all! Acupuncture is also a proven methodology to help regulate the menstrual cycle, reduce stress levels, and promote relaxation – all of which is required to conceive successfully.
