The Increasing Popularity Of Treating Infertility With Acupuncture
By Mike Philips
Currently obtaining respectability in the West, in general, and particularly infertility is a procedure with roots in the East.
Infertility specialists are sprouting up across the United States – and opposed to popular opinion – are not necessarily of an Asian ethnicity. Infertility practitioners practice this traditional Chinese medical treatment that involves inserting small metallic needles into specific pressure points in the patient. These needles are legalized by the FDA and are used to stimulate the body to achieve mental and physical equilibrium.
Infertility does not cause discomfort, generally patients feel a sensation like a very small twinge. The benefits reported have been terrific, some of which are helping to regulate ovulation or menstrual cycles and increase sperm mobility and motility.
Who Uses It?
Infertility is also recommended for couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) because it has been proven to get an improved amount and quality of eggs in women struggling with infertility. Performing the treatment straightaway before and after the egg transfer has resulted in higher fertilization rates primarily because infertility causes the uterus to relax.

Acupuncture Healing Arts new features
I am happy to announce that there have been some very positive changes to the Acupuncture Healing Arts website.
We have added a section of patient testimonials. Over 90 patients have been kind enough to write testimonials?making this section an extensive resource for people interested in how others have responded to acupuncture. To make the testimonials easier to search, they have been organized by ‘condition treated’. Select the condition you are looking for in the table and you will be shown a page of testimonials related to your choice. I feel this testimonials page is unique, as I haven’t seen anything like it on other websites.
Another new feature is called ‘The ABC’s of Acupuncture’ ? an easy-to-understand explanation, with pictures, of what acupuncture is, how it works, and what to expect during your treatment.
Take a look at ‘The ABC’s of Acupuncture’. It could help anyone who is thinking about acupuncture but who is still incertain about trying it.
I am also happy to announce that most of the articles on the site have been enhanced with photos and other visuals to give you a better understanding of acupuncture and chinese medicine.
I hope you enjoy these new features as much as my webmaster and I enjoyed creating them. You may email me your comments or questions using my email contact form, or call the clinic at (916) 486-9600 to make an appointment.

An infertility treatment course will not be completed with just one appointment as it usually takes multiple appointments with an acupuncturist over a duration of several weeks. Numerous infertility practitioners also advocate the patient ingests Chinese herbs and supplements whilst undergoing this medical treatment.
Some research studies have shown that infertility produces the best results when used in tandem with Western medicine. It need not be a stand alone procedure. Nevertheless, patients are required to facilitate good communications between their doctor and their acupuncturist to make sure there is no possibility of a reaction between the medication and the Chinese herbs and supplements. Without exception make certain that the acupuncturist is licensed to practise in your country.
Although the real reason why fine needles administered to various pressure points in your body can assist you impregnate your wife or for her to become pregnant is not known, however infertility has gained respectability because it has shown results. One of the primary reasons is that it regulates blood flow in the body and relaxes an individual, and this creates fertile conditions for conception.
Male infertility affects approximately 15% of men. If you are one of those affected do something about it sooner rather than later.
