Fertility support



Acupuncture can help prepare your body for conception by-


Regulating fertility hormones

Stress and other factors can disrupt the function of the hypothalamic pituitary-ovarian axis (HPOA), causing hormonal imbalances that can negatively impact fertility. Acupuncture has been shown to affect hormone levels by promoting the release of beta-endorphin in the brain, which affects the release of a number of hormones.


Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs

 Stress also stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, which causes constriction of ovarian arteries. Acupuncture inhibits this sympathetic activity, improving blood flow to the ovaries, enhancing the environment in which ovarian follicles develop. It also increases blood flow to the uterus, improving the thickness of the endometrial lining and increasing the chances of embryo implantation.
