Support for Infertility
There are several types of therapies available to women and men who are experiencing challenges in conceiving or have been diagnosed with infertility.
Acupuncture for Fertility
For more than 2,000 years, acupuncture has been used to treat most types of infertility by promoting balance and healing. When the thin, small needles are painlessly placed into specific points on the patient's body, ovarian and follicular function is improved in women and sperm production, structure and quality can be improved in men.
Herbal Therapies for Fertility
Much like acupuncture, herbs have been used for centuries to help men and women conceive by promoting chemical balance within the body. There can be as many as 150 different herbs that can be used. When used under the supervision of a health-care provider trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), herbal therapies can safely and effectively stimulate ovulation, clean the uterus and work to balance the female hormonal system. Herbal therapies can also address sperm quality and production. Herbs may be administered as pills, powders, tablets or teas, depending on the protocol indicated and the patient's condition.
Maya Abdominal Therapy for Fertility
During this non-invasive treatment that can be helpful for both men and women, a practitioner massages the abdomen and pelvis, which works to move reproductive organs into their optimal position for conception. Maya Abdominal Therapy is also effective for reducing tension in the diaphragm in women, which can be a barrier to conceiving.
Reflexology for Fertility
A Reflexology treatment is an effective way to help women who are struggling with infertility manage stress and relax, which is essential to conceiving a child. During the treatment, the practitioner will apply slight pressure on specific points in the hands, feet and ears. Doing so opens the body's natural energy channels, which can release endorphins and improve the function of organs such as the liver, kidneys, testes and ovaries.
While integrative treatments, including reflexology, Maya Abdominal Therapy, herbal therapies and acupuncture for fertility have been used to help couples overcome infertility for thousands of years, it is important to design an individualized care plan that is right for you. Our practitioners are available to discuss your needs and create a customized treatment plan that addresses your goals and needs in a comprehensive manner.
