There are many reasons couples have difficulties in their efforts to naturally conceive and deliver a baby.  There are also many possible solutions.  Whether you are considering a Western fertility programme or are interested in exploring less invasive and costly alternatives, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine may help.

While Traditional Chinese Medicine has only gained wide recognition in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand during the past several decades, it has been used throughout Asia and Europe for generations to successfully treat infertility in both men and women.

This approach works in two ways:

First, TCM strengthens and balances the body's overall general health.  By addressing the root conditions instead of focusing primarily on symptoms healing is encouraged throughout the body.  This lays the groundwork for a healthy reproductive system.  In many cases the reduction of stress and anxiety alone can be a significant factor in increasing the likelihood of successful conception.  The general health benefits derived from TCM can also improve a woman's postpartum recovery.  

TCM techniques can also be targeted to bring about necessary conditions for fertility such as hormone balance, effective sperm quality, regular menstrual cycles and making a woman's reproductive organs more receptive to conception and pregnancy.

As it was developed as a complete traditional health care system, TCM can serve as a stand alone fertility treatment program or used to augment Western procedures such as surgery, manual egg retrieval or hormone therapies.
