Acupuncture & IVF

In Vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a ground breaking treatment that assists nature in bringing together the egg and the sperm to facilitate conception.

Five-Element acupuncture is a system of medicine that also assists nature to do what nature does best; make babies. This style of acupuncture is different to others in that there are no formulas or set protocols, instead each treatment is tailored to your particular needs while you go through IVF. By facilitating balance and harmony in your energy, all of the different organs in your body are galvanised to work together to ensure the environment is right to create new life.

By combining our treatment with IVF, success rates seem to dramatically improve, not only in creating the most ideal conditions for conception, but also giving the highest possible chance of a problem-free pregnancy. My goal is always to help people conceive without IVF but where it is necessary the marriage of these two systems provides a very positive result.

I recommend you start having treatment around 3 months prior to starting IVF, but where this is not possible treatment can still have a significant effect at any time.

I can also support couples who are having pre/post fertility acupuncture as part of their IVF treatment at;

  • Glasgow Clinic for Reproductive Medicine (GCRM),
  • The Nuffield Private Hospital
  • The Royal Hospital Infirmary
