TCM & Fertility
There are lots of ways that acupuncture can help with Fertility and the IVF process.
Studies show that Acupuncture, in conjunction with IVF, greatly enhances a woman’s chances of conception.
So how does it work?
How acupuncture works is by tiny needles (sterile & disposable) being inserted into your body, it triggers the nervous system to relax by producing endorphins and lessens the release of cortisol into the blood stream. Acupuncture is a successful tool that treats the root cause of infertility, increases in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) success and prepares men and women for pregnancy.
Acupuncture also has the ability to help in the following ways:
Acupuncture can address male fertility factors as it has the ability to increase the parameters of sperm motility, morphology and count. This further aids fertilisation of eggs leading to viable embryos.
Please see following research findings on acupuncture in conjunction with IVF/ICSI:
A study published in 2002 shows that acupuncture treatment administered 25 minutes before and 25 minutes after IVF treatment increased success of pregnancy by 15 percent.
Acupuncture on the day of ET significantly improves the reproductive outcome of IVF/ICSI, compared with no acupuncture:

What our Clients have to say....
I’d like to thank Niamh for all her treatment and care during my last pregnancy. I came to Niamh requesting help to keep my blood pressure down because on my previous pregnancies I was on medication for BP which I wanted to avoid on my third pregnancy. Niamh treated me on a regular basis and I avoided medication and high BP issues. I also had 2 previous inductions and I really wanted to avoid a third induction. Niamh started pre-induction treatment a few weeks before my due date and then worked up to the full induction the week of my due date and I was delighted when I started labour myself 3 days after my due date and baby was born soon after that. Niamh did a great job and gave me the outcome that I wanted. I’d highly recommend Niamh because she is friendly, approachable, very professional and thrives to achieve the best treatment for her clients.
