What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment method used by practitioners of Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture is the use of very fine sterile needles inserted at specific points of the body in order to rebalance the internal environment, re-establish homeostasis, and therefore treat disease. According to traditional theories acupuncture influences the vital force, or Qi, of the body. Western science has proven that acupuncture can regulate the body by many mechanisms, including stimulating the endocrine and nervous systems.

Finding the Cause of Pain
When we experience pain it is sometimes difficult to pinpoint where the pain is or what type of pain it is, and that’s ok. There are so many different kinds of pain, but to name a few there is acute, chronic, psychosomatic (i.e. stress of many different levels), and systemic inflammation (i.e. autoimmune disease). When we are suffering from pain how do we know what it’s coming from and what do we do?
There are so many different forms of physical and mental therapy out there and it is important to find what works best for you. A very important question to ask yourself is how you feel about your pain. Do you want to overcome it? Do you identify with it? Will you work hard to feel better? All of these factors, no matter how emotional they may be, are extremely important in your success to feel better and they can help guide you to the right professional.
Used as a treatment for fertility, acupuncture is used to balance hormones and stimulates blood flow to reproductive organs. Acupuncture also provides a calming effect reducing stress for both women and men.
What an Acupuncturist Does to Treat Infertility:
During an acupuncture treatment you will have very fine needles inserted into specific “points” on the body that will benefit the three organ systems associated to pregnancy. Stated in simplistic terms, an acupuncturist works to restore the body’s balance by unblocking whatever is causing the organs to not function as designed. You will read other information on the web that refers to the flow of energy known as Qi (CHI).
A study published in the medical journal Fertility & Sterility found that acupuncture dramatically improves the chances of becoming pregnant when used in conjunction with other methods or techniques. Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York reviewed studies and concluded that acupuncture helps to:
- Improve blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the uterine wall
- Reduce anxiety, stress and the hormones that are secreted during stressful situations that can significantly decrease fertility
- Normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a key role in fertility
- Regulate menstrual cycle
- In a study published in Human Reproduction Journal an ultrasound was used to evaluate blood flow to the uterus during acupuncture treatments. The study found blood flow increases during treatment.
According to Dr. Nancy Snyderman, “when acupuncture needles are placed correctly, it can affect the nervous system. The idea is that if you stimulate the nervous system, you can make the uterus quiet and allow blood to flow”. Relaxing the uterus and increasing blood flow allows for the successful implant of an embryo within the uterine lining.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can raise the fertility potential for women by affecting the quality, quantity, balance and flow of Qi and blood. When Qi (also called Life Energy) and blood are circulating freely throughout the body, every cell, tissue and organ is properly nourished and functioning well. When this occurs, a woman’s health and fertility potential are increased.
Acupuncture has a relaxation response with decreased heart rate, lowered BP, stress reduction and increased energy and tissue regeneration.
