Acupuncture has helped billions of people over the past 5,000 years!
Einstein showed us that everything is made of, and radiates, energy. This subtle form of energy supports, shapes and enlivens our physical body and activates our lives.
For the past 5,000 years, practitioners of acupuncture have called this intelligent energy
Qi (pronounced ‘chee”)
Qi is a combination of energies, mixed together from our food, air and inherited constitution. Our health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi. Wherever a river flows, it carries water that provides nourishment and sustenance for life on our planet. Similarly, meridians are the rivers where Qi flows inside of us. Qi flows through meridians as an invisible current, energizing, nourishing and supporting every cell, tissue, muscle, organ and gland. When Qi is balanced and flowing freely, the body’s natural self-healing abilities are activated, enabling internal stability and harmony to occur. The body will flourish, and true health and well being can be achieved.
The stresses of infertility can affect the quality and flow of Qi.
Today, acupuncture is receiving acceptance as a respected, valid and effective form of health care. When most people think about acupuncture, they are familiar with its use for pain control.

If your going through fertility treatment it is so important to consult with your fertility doctor on the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Every IVF clinic has it’s own protocol when it comes to acupuncture and herbs. That is why it is imperative that you consult this with your fertility doctor. Most clinics will ask you to stop using any Chinese herbs once you have started an IVF cycle.
