A Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Clinic

Acupressure for Fertility

Acupressure was discovered over thousands years ago in Ancient China,
and it is still widely used today. Rooted in the centuries-old principles of
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and validated by modern research,
acupressure involves applying pressure to specific points on the body that
flow along meridians to improve blood flow in the body and to foster the
body’s vital life force (also known as “chi”). Acupressure works to
increase fertility in male and female patients by targeting body points that
lay major roles in reproductive health. In particular the treatment focuses
on the liver, spleen, urinary bladder, ovaries, uterus kidneys and fallopian
tubes. Acupressure works to increase fertility by

  • ·        Releasing stress and anxiety
  • ·        Promoting blood flow to ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes and all organs related to reproduction
  • ·        Restoring hormonal balance
  • ·        Increasing sperm health (quantity and quality) in men
  • ·        Improving the success rate of IVF IUI procedures
  • ·        Decreasing the potential negative side effects of fertility/IVF medications
