Acupuncture to Help Your Family Grow

For many couples achieving pregnancy is difficult and stressful. Infertility affects both men and women and acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine offer a natural and supportive therapy for all stages along the road to parenthood.

Whether you are trying to conceive, already pregnant or preparing for labour and birth, acupuncture can be of great benefit in strengthening and rebalancing your body in order to increase your reproductive health as well as to reduce stress.

Trying to Conceive Naturally

Acupuncture can help the body achieve optimal health ready for conception to take place.

By rebalancing the body, acupuncture can regulate ovulation & menstruation as well as support the healthy implantation of a fertilised egg. 

Additionally acupuncture can treat low sperm count & low motility by improving sperm quality and thereby increasing fertilisation rates.
