What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture meridians are pathways throughout your body that carry vital energy, also known as Qi (pronounced “chee”). A blockage or interference in any of these pathways can result in energetic imbalances which may contribute to various health conditions.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with Acupuncture
Recent studies indicate that acupuncture is effective in improving pregnancy rate among women undergoing infertility treatment such as IVF.
Acupuncture has been shown in studies to affect the levels of pituitary and ovarian hormones. In addition, Electro-acupuncture may also help improve blood flow in the uterine arteries of infertile women.
Acupuncture is able to “relax” the uterus during the embryo transfer, which have been shown to increase success rates in some women.
17% More Effective
In a recent blind study, 160 women undergoing IVF were also given acupuncture before & after embryo transfer. It was reported that patients who received acupuncture with IVF were 17% more successful.
