Deciding to start a family is an exciting, but nerve racking process. Will I be a good parent? What if something goes wrong? Add to that the additional stress of trying to conceive and you have a recipe for disaster. Often just the removal of these stress factors is enough to allow for a smooth conception, pregnancy, and birth in most cases. However, there are also many women and, yes, men that suffer from infertility which often leads to treatments such as IUI, IVF, or other ART treatments which can be costly and a bit clinical increasing stress levels even more.
What if there was another option? Imagine walking into a warm and comforting office with soft lighting and relaxing music playing in the background, then meeting your practitioner face-to-face and sitting down to discuss the new addition to your family. The treatment itself is surprisingly painless and you fall asleep on the cushioned table wrapped in warm blankets. You leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Meanwhile, under the surface your cells are busy at work assimilating all that your practitioner told them to do. After several treatments you notice your cycle regulating itself out, becoming less painful and more consistent. Your cervical mucus is becoming robust and of better consistency. Before you know it, you conceive.
Sounds too good to be true but this isn't some mythical fairy tale, this is Acupuncture, an ancient healing art passed down through generations and molded into the medicine it is today. Acupuncture is a wonderful, non-invasive treatment for many infertility problems that not only addresses any functional problems with conception, but also decreases stress levels. If you have been having difficulty conceiving, or just want the best possible outcome for your pregnancy, Acupuncture is a safe, non stressful way to increase your chances of becoming and staying pregnant.
