The Fertility Treatment

The treatment of infertilitiy with acupuncture and Chinese medicine dates back 2,000 years. These ancient, time-tested techniques improve fertility rates and support a women's whole body, unlocking unlimited potential for health, healing and childbearing.

Whether you’ve already been through IUI or IVF, have ovulatory dysfunction, or have just started trying and want to support your body’s natural fertility, ASA have a treatment that can help you.

Nourish the mother to nourish the child
Fertility acupuncture, like any kind of acupuncture seeks to restore balance to your body. We seek to nourish your body and create rich, healthy environment to support a pregnancy and birth. If you are going through a medicated cycle you will also benefit from our acupuncture programs.


How can ASA support your IVF cycle

Before (3 months prior to cycle) – in women, improve egg quality and regulate hormones; in men, improve semen quality & quantity.

During – increase the number of follicles & improve the quality of the uterine environment by relaxing uterine muscles & thickening uterine lining.

After (once pregnant) – prevent miscarriages and minimize symptoms common in the first trimester.

How exactly Acupuncture can help to improve the success rate?

  • Improve the function of the ovaries to produce better quality eggs

  • Regulate the hormones to produce a larger number of follicles

  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and increase the thickness of the uterine lining

  • Relaxes the patient to relieve stress related dysfunction

  • Decrease chances of miscarriage by relaxing the uterus

  • Strengthens immune system

Male factor

  • Invigorate the sperm, raising the sperm count and mobility

  • Improved sperm quality

How long does it take?

  • In most cases, men and women need a minimum of 3 months of consistent regular treatment.

  • Most couples conceive anywhere between 6 to 12 months.

  • The consistency of receiving acupuncture treatments and taking herbal formulas is crucial because specific hormonal adjustments are made during each week of the cycle. Missing a week of treatment may be detrimental, in that an important opportunity to balance a particular segment of the four-phase menstrual cycle (follicular phase, ovulation, luteal phase, and menstruation) is lost.

  • A minimum of 3 menstrual cycles (12 consecutive treatments) usually begins to regulate a woman’s hormonal system regardless of biological age.

  • However, if you use acupuncture with assisted reproductive technology, the treatment period varies, depending on the success of the procedure. Because of the cumulative healing affect of acupuncture and herbal formulas, and their ability to increase one’s fertility quotient, most patients continue receiving acupuncture for the duration of conception. Acupuncture treatments can also detoxify the body from chemical medications or other toxic substances, hence enhancing the body’s likelihood of conception. The longer you allow your body to reach homeostasis through the use of Chinese medicine, the better your chances are. If you have gone through multiple ART procedures without success, receiving long-term regular acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments will significantly improve your chances of conception. Therefore, the couple must expect to devote 6 to 9 months of consistent treatment before evaluating results.

  • There is no quick-fix-path when it comes to conception, full-term pregnancy, and the health of a baby, but it’s well worth the long wait!
