Fertility Acupuncture-How Does it Work?

One might wonder how Acupuncture works for Fertility at our Nashville clinic.  Small needles inserted into certain points on the body can help you have a baby?  Yes it most certainly can!  If you would like to know EXACTLY how Acupuncture works on a microscopic level, you can read The Science of Acupuncture article.


Fertility Acupuncture Promotes Cellular Growth

Because an embryo starts as a microscopic living cell, our goal is to get your body as healthy as possible so it is a place that allows for that growth.  A sperm and an egg are both cells.  If two healthy cells come together or fuse, conception takes place and the cell divides to form a new cell.  Healthy cells make other healthy cells.  Whether you are thinking of conceiving naturally and utilizing Acupuncture to help with this process or you are undergoing IVF treatments, it works in the same fashion. Our Nashville Acupuncture clinic can help!

Acupuncture Balances Hormones

Acupuncture for Hormone Balancing

Acupuncture also works to balance the hormones and the overall endocrine system.  The endocrine system is the system that governs the release of hormones, and the right hormones at the right time for fertility and pregnancy to take place.  Hormones need to be in specific ratios in order to conceive and allow for the fetus to grow in the womb.  For example, women with progesterone deficiencies will experience what is called menorrhagia, or the inability to stop having a menstrual cycle.  This means that a woman spots or bleeds constantly throughout the month.  If this is the case, a woman has an inability to become pregnant.  Another issue is a woman may not be making and producing enough blood to have a monthly cycle.  This is called ammenorrhea.  This is another hormone problem that can be fixed with Acupuncture at our Nashville clinic.  Acupuncture is extremely effective for balancing the hormones, allowing for the release of the appropriate hormones during each phase of the month.

Acupuncture Makes the Body Healthy

Acupuncture for Fertility and Pregnancy

In addition, women need to be healthy and stable in order to conceive, carry and deliver a healthy baby to term.  If a woman has a digestive disorder and is not digesting and absorbing nutrients, the baby will not get the nutrients that it needs.  This could lead to a malabsorption issue for both the mother and the baby.  At our Nashville clinic, we use Acupuncture to help restore the functioning of the digestive system by building blood, delivering nutrients as needed, assimilating vitamins and minerals, and allowing the mother to carry for a full term.

Acupuncture also works to restore your adrenal glands.  The adrenal glands are very important glands that sit on top of the kidneys.  They are your ‘reserve’ tank of energy.  This is where you get energy from when if you are overstressed, overtired, overworked or have not eaten.  With work, stress, and life today as we know it in Nashville, Acupuncture is a well-needed modality!  Women have a tendency toward adrenal deficiency now more than ever before.  Women are doing a lot more these days, and therefore need a boost to lift their energy levels.  Acupuncture helps to restore cortisol, your vital energy, that is stored in the adrenal glands.

Acupuncture Increases Circulation

Acupuncture increases Circulation for Fertility

Acupuncture allows for increased circulation to the uterus, and  reproductive organs, which when pregnant leads to the growing fetus.  Where blood flows, energy goes.  Therefore by boosting the blood flow and energy in the nervous system, the body becomes healthy with oxygenated blood.  Our Nashville Acupuncturist has years of experience with fertility to help with this.
