Acupuncture for Mental Health During Fertility Journey

Becoming a parent is one of the biggest transitions in adult life for men and women. The stress of trying to get pregnant, being pregnant, not being pregnant, experiencing a miscarriage and simply living with “Modern Lifestyle Syndrome,” can cause many women, and men, to spiral. 

Couples who experience non-fulfillment of a child, often face periods of anger, depression, anxiety, marital problems, sexual dysfunction and isolation. Infertility affects an estimated 10-15% of couples and is said to have exponentially increased due to postponement of childbearing years and more proven success of infertility treatments. Not being able to conceive can occur because of many reasons including low sperm count or motility issues in men. 


Acupuncture can help by increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs. For those women undertaking IUI or IVF, acupuncture may also dramatically improve a woman’s response to hormonal therapy, as a natural hormone regulator. Acupuncture has been shown to help restore hormone function for a better flow and balance within the body. 


The physical and emotional stress of daily living can take a toll on your body, especially if it’s working hard from within to create life. Acupuncture has been proven to reduce stress, which in turn may help to improve ovulation


Becoming pregnant and giving birth to a child is an amazing, yet overwhelming experience. The woman’s body especially goes through a huge physical and emotional life-change which can include elevations in fatigue and anxiety. There is a large amount of blood needed to create and give birth so naturally a woman needs to recover and restore her body.  


A holistic treatment, such as adding acupuncture to your routine, can be a great complement to other medical treatments and be an effective practice in supporting patients through their healing journey. Whether going through fertility issues, dealing with pain or trying to manage overactive anxiety – Modern Acupuncture® has helped numerous patients find relief. 


“Wonderfully relaxing and flexible place to go! I loved how many days/times were available. It's actually a very cost affective place to go to treatment if you do the monthly plan! I went during our fertility treatments, and I'm currently 4 months pregnant! Definitely helped me to relax and let my body accept our tiny little embryo.” - Arielle S


“I loved my experience at Modern Acupuncture and will definitely be going back! I first tried acupuncture when I was pregnant, and my baby was still in a breech position close to my delivery date. My Dr. recommended acupuncture to help turn the baby naturally. To say I was skeptical is an understatement, but it actually worked.”  - Renu K
