Acupuncture & Moxibustion for Fertility, IVF and Pregnancy

Our practitioners have undergone further training in acupuncture fertility management for both (2) males and females. If IVF has been unsuccessful, IVF support (1) acupuncture can assist to balance the body, which may help it to better accept IVF, IUI or ICSI implantation, or even accommodate natural (5) conception. One study (7) showed that acupuncture increased pregnancy rates when administered at the follicle phase and 25 minutes before and after embryo transfer (ET) or 30 minutes after ET and after the IVF implantation phase.

Clinical Nutrition, Exercise and Lifestyle Advice for Fertility, IVF and Pregnancy

Successful conception involves more than just eggs, sperm and the reproductive system. As with all other areas of human health and physiology, the human reproductive system works best when the whole organism is balanced and healthy. Our practitioners are fully trained in Nutrition, Exercise and Lifestyle Advice and can assist you to prepare your body with the right exercises & optimal nutrition for a successful pregnancy or (3) IVF treatment.

Psychology for Fertility, IVF and Pregnancy

Our practitioners are aware of a mind-body connection when it comes to conception. As a woman your psychological state can affect your fertility and hormones. If you’re going through IVF you might be feeling some (4,6) stress around the whole process. There can also be other triggers such as: if your partner isn’t sure they’re ready for children, and leading a busy lifestyle – perhaps unaware of the impact that it can have on your body. There are further psychological factors that can cause stress too, including worries about past or present relationships with your parents. Talking with our Psychologist may assist in combating this stress if being unable to relax through the process is an area of concern for you.
