How Does Fertility Acupuncture Work?

Regulate Your Cycle

Fertility acupuncture targets treating your endocrine systems which is in charge of releasing and regulating your hormones. We start by regulating your menstrual cycle. Having a monthly regular cycle is a sign of optimized fertility and will allow us to begin tracking ovulation.

Increase Uterine Lining Thickness

Acupuncture increases the thickness of the uterine lining and receptivity.
Successful implantation into the uterine lining is essential for a healthy pregnancy. The soil needs to be fertile for a plant to grow is the same idea as a healthy uterine lining. Acupuncture can increase blood flow which results in a thicker, healthier lining.

Improve Egg Quality

Acupuncture improves egg quality and quantity. Not only is the number of follicles important, but the quality of the egg those follicles produces. There are certain acupuncture points which stimulates the ATP or energy to fertilize an egg.

Improve Sperm Quality

Acupuncture is not just for the ladies and their eggs. It is more common that most realize that the male partner may also need treatment. Multiple studies have shown that acupuncture can increase sperm count and motility.

Relieve Stress

Stress can affect us in so many ways and reducing some of the stress that comes with fertility challenges will increase the likelihood of a positive outcome. Not only does acupuncture balance hormones related to fertility but it also helps hormones in relation to our mood. Walk into acupuncture and float out on a cloud.

Prevent Miscarriage

Research shows that acupuncture can help secure a growing embryo and prevent miscarriage. There are specific acupuncture points for this protocol. We can work together to get a positive pregnancy and then continue throughout each trimester to focus on treating the next phase of the pregnancy.

Menstrual Health Acupuncture

Are your monthly periods more of a rollercoaster ride than a predictable cycle? 

Do you often find yourself grappling with painful cramps, irregular bleeding, or mood swings that seem to come out of nowhere?
You're not alone.
Many women face these challenges with their menstrual cycles, but there's a holistic and natural solution that's been used for centuries – acupuncture.

Understanding Menstrual Health

Menstruation is a natural process that should ideally occur like clockwork, signaling the overall health and balance of your body. However, stress, dietary choices, hormonal imbalances, and other factors can disrupt this delicate equilibrium, leading to menstrual irregularities and discomfort.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow, or qi. Acupuncture can be particularly effective for menstrual health and regularity by addressing the root causes of menstrual irregularities.

Here's how acupuncture can help:

Hormonal Balance

Acupuncture has been shown to regulate the endocrine system, which plays a crucial role in regulating hormones. By improving hormonal balance, acupuncture can help regulate menstrual cycles.

Pain Management

Acupuncture is known for its ability to reduce pain and discomfort. For women who experience severe menstrual cramps, regular acupuncture sessions can provide relief.

Stress Reduction

High-stress levels can disrupt your menstrual cycle. Acupuncture promotes relaxation and reduces stress, which can help restore regularity.

Improved Blood Flow

Acupuncture enhances blood circulation, ensuring that the pelvic area receives adequate blood supply. This can help alleviate issues related to heavy bleeding.

Emotional Balance

Acupuncture isn't just about physical health; it also addresses emotional well-being. Mood swings and emotional disturbances related to PMS can be managed effectively with acupuncture.

What to Expect During An Acupuncture Treatment


Your acupuncturist will discuss your medical health history, symptoms, and overall health to tailor the treatment to your specific needs.

Needle Insertion

Thin, sterile needles are gently inserted into specific acupuncture points. You may feel a slight sensation, but acupuncture is generally painless.


You'll then relax for about 20-30 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find this part of the session deeply calming.

Repeat Sessions

Acupuncture is most effective when done regularly. Depending on your individual needs, your acupuncturist will recommend a treatment plan, most patients come for weekly treatments.
