Laser Acupuncture Improves the Chance of Success in IVF
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most widely used medical procedures in the world. Using very thin needles or, more recently, laser technology, acupuncturists work to reduce pain and improve health by targeting certain points on the body. Reproductive Medicine Associates of Pennsylvania recently completed one of the largest randomized clinical trials ever conducted to measure the effects of acupuncture on pregnancy rates in IVF. The results indicate that treatment with laser acupuncture could increase pregnancy rates in IVF procedures.
Is Laser Acupuncture Right for You?
Women who are candidates for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) should consider incorporating laser acupuncture into their treatment. In addition to improving pregnancy rates, acupuncture can reduce stress and improve blood flow to the pelvic area and uterine lining. Some patients find that acupuncture has a positive impact on an ovulation, regulation of menstrual cycles, endometriosis, and other health issues including back pain, headaches, and digestive problems.
Acupuncture and Fertility
Acupuncture is the oldest continually practiced medicine in the world and is widely accepted as an effective option in treating a range of health problems. There is growing evidence in medical research indicating that acupuncture may have a positive impact on fertility. Acupuncture helps regulate menstrual cycles, reduce stress and anxiety, increase energy, and improve blood flow to the pelvic area. Involving thin, disposable, sterile needles placed into strategic points on the body, acupuncture works to stimulate certain key “energy points” to help patients achieve greater spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical balance.
