Benefits of Acupuncture for Fertility!

Research has shown that acupuncture can improve fertility in couples trying to conceive for a long time without success. Or for those just beginning their fertility journey who want a leg-up at the very start. Acupuncture increases blood flow to the reproductive organs, regulates hormone levels, reduces stress, and improves overall health and well-being.


How Does Fertility Acupuncture Help?


1. Improve Ovarian Function: Acupuncture can help to improve ovarian function and increase the production of healthy eggs. Acupuncture has been increasingly recognized as a therapy for improving ovarian function in women, particularly for those experiencing infertility issues. Studies have demonstrated that this ancient form of Chinese medicine can enhance ovarian blood flow and boost the levels of reproductive hormones to improve follicular development and ovulation.


2. Increase the Success of IVF: Recent studies have shown that acupuncture can increase the success rate of IVF by up to 65%. With the potential to significantly increase the success of IVF, acupuncture is a valuable addition to any fertility treatment plan.


I’m so excited I get to tell you that I am pregnant!!!! I just had my 8-week ultrasound today and baby looks good and healthy! Thank you so much for everything that you did for me, Dr. Nicky! I appreciate it more than you know!

3. Regulate Hormone Levels:

Acupuncture can help to regulate hormone levels, which is essential for fertility. Studies have demonstrated that acupuncture helps regulate the levels of hormones involved in the reproductive process. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and estrogen are all key hormones that play a role in regulating the menstrual cycle and female fertility. Acupuncture helps balance these hormones, leading to an increase in the chances of pregnancy.


4. Reduce Stress and Anxiety: Acupuncture can help reduce stress and anxiety, improving fertility. Let's be honest, the fertility journey is S.T.R.E.S.S.F.U.L.! Luckily, acupuncture is amazing at helping manage stress and anxiety! Infertility is stressful on both partners, not just the one who will be carrying the baby. Both of you deserve self-care during this process, so prioritize both of your well-being with acupuncture.


I saw Dr. Nicky for acupuncture fertility treatments when I was trying to get pregnant. I had seen other acupuncturists before and she far surpassed them with her knowledge and plan/strategy for reaching my goal. I truly believe her acupuncture played an integral role with me becoming pregnant and the resulting successful pregnancy. I would recommend Dr. Nicky to anyone!

5. Enhance Sperm Quality: Acupuncture can improve sperm quality, sperm count, and motility in men, increasing the chances of conception. Yup, Dr. Nicky, DACM, also recommends acupuncture for male partners.

I strongly believe you had a very significant role in this good news and am incredibly thankful I came to see you Dr. Nicky! You are super great and I am so so happy I came to you!! THANK YOU again!

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific acupuncture points on the body. Acupuncture has been used to treat various health conditions, including infertility, in both men and women. In recent years, acupuncture has gained popularity among couples struggling to conceive and seeking alternative options for fertility treatments.


How Acupuncture Works!

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's natural healing mechanisms by inserting thin needles into specific acupuncture points on the body. The needles used in acupuncture are very thin. During an acupuncture session, Dr. Nicky, DACM, L.Ac., will insert the needles into specific acupuncture points on the body to improve blood and energy flow to the reproductive organs, regulate hormone levels, and reduce stress. This is a personalized and results-driven treatment.


Acupuncture has been used for centuries as a natural way to regulate hormone levels in the body. In recent years, it has become a popular alternative treatment for couples struggling with fertility issues. Acupuncture can be used alone or in conjunction with Natural, IUI, IVF, FET, donor fertility (egg/sperm), surrogates, medication-assisted (Clomid, etc.), and other types of fertility treatments to increase the chances of success. Acupuncture can help regulate the menstrual cycle, promote ovulation and boost blood flow to the reproductive organs, all of which are necessary for conception.
