How Can Acupuncture Help Fertility?

Acupuncturist Kathleen Fraser has been helping women increase fertility for over 10 years.  Her knowledge of the female reproductive system, western medical treatments and Chinese Medicine has created great clinical success for her patients.  By using acupuncture, a form of physical medicine that originated in China over 4000 years ago, very thin, sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the body, to manipulate and balance the flow of energy through the body. When we are balanced, our bodies function optimally: our organs function well, our sleep is restful, we are resistant to disease, we recover easily from injury, and our reproductive capacity is functional. For a variety of reasons this balance can become disturbed. Imbalance gives rise to symptoms, including infertility. Acupuncture aims to correct any imbalance, eliminating any and all symptoms that the imbalance caused. Acupuncture can boost your fertility and increase your chances of conception.

Acupuncture can help with all stages in the fertility journey from conception to delivery. Acupuncture can:

  • Regulate the menses and increase the blood flow to the uterus
  • Resolve painful, irregular, scanty or excessive menses
  • Resolve mood swings, depression and anger associated with PMS
  • Improve sperm count
  • Relieve stress
  • Regulate the hormones and increase ovarian response function
  • Reduce the side effects of hormone treatments
  • Increase and strengthen the immune system
  • Improve the success rate of IVF

Acupuncturist Kathleen is happy to answer your questions about fertility and to discuss your present health.   Call 703-312-7000 to schedule a free consultation or to schedule your first appointment.
