Scarborough Natural Fertility Treatment

A Holistic Approach to Treating Infertility


fertility-acupunctureWomen in Scarborough and surrounding areas have become more interested in natural fertility in recent years as therapies and treatments used in traditional Chinese medicine have proven effective.  Acupuncture is one component of this holistic approach to improved fertility.  At Rhythms, our holistic fertility specialists know the impact IVF and fertility acupuncture can have on the lives of women and couples who have tried time and time again to conceive a baby.  It is possible to achieve a healthier reproductive environment and overall improved well-being regardless of issues that may have prevented you from becoming pregnant!

Fertility acupuncture can significantly increase conception rates when used alone or in conjunction with traditional Western medicine.  In addition to its stress reducing abilities, fertility acupuncture improves blood flow to the uterus and reproductive organs and enhances the flow of “qi” or energy between the internal organs and body’s surface which when blocked can result in disease.  Essentially the uterus, ovaries and entire reproductive system become a more receptive environment and the chance of a successful pregnancy increases.

IVF acupuncture is effective in women who are undergoing treatment with an IVF doctor, increasing the chances of success.  Anyone who has undergone these treatments knows how expensive they can be, and that there is no guarantee of success.  IVF acupuncture with an acupuncture fertility specialist increases these chances by enhancing blood flow to the uterus and relaxing the uterus when performed prior to an embryo transfer.  Acupuncture may also be helpful weeks or even months before an IVF cycle by improving the quality of the menstrual cycle, regulating hormones, and nourishing the ovaries for better egg development.

Holistic fertility is a more natural way to approach fertility whether used alone or in conjunction with traditional Western medicine.  For women who have infertility issues and have had trouble conceiving, we urge you to contact Rhythms today.  We invite those in Scarborough and surrounding areas to learn more about our natural fertility clinic and the benefits of acupuncture by contacting us at 207-615-4240.
