Acupuncture Fertility Treatments at Southern California Reproductive Center (SCRC)
Studies Support Acupuncture as an Effective Infertility Treatment
A fundamental therapy in Chinese medicine, acupuncture has been used for more than 3,500 years. Now, studies in the U.S. and Europe indicate that acupuncture can improve fertility when combined with Western treatments. These studies show that acupuncture increases blood flow to the uterus and helps release the body’s endorphins, which play a critical role in overall balance and feeling of well-being.
An acupuncturist can be an important adjunct to the core services provided by your fertility team. Acupuncture fertility treatments are another good example of the integrative approach used at SCRC, combining complementary and alternative medicine therapies with more traditional medical and surgical infertility treatments. We have several acupuncturists that we use regularly whom we recommend highly; however, you are welcome to use your own acupuncturist if you prefer.
Fertility Acupuncture Therapy Could Be Right for You
For couples seeking to create a family, both the female and male partner can use acupuncture as an effective addition to standard infertility treatment, it may significantly improve your fertility treatment outcome.
Acupuncture has no or very minor side effects. Acupuncture needles are very small and cause less discomfort than a simple blood draw or IV start. The positive effects of acupuncture vastly outweigh any concerns over the procedure.
