Nicole Hohmann played an integral part in helping me get pregnant. Acupuncture with Nicole was relaxing, stress free, and amazing. In conjunction with Western medicine, I give Nicole’s acupuncture treatments a great deal of credit for both my pregnancies. Unlike any other methods of fertility treatment I had used, she encouraged me to be myself and was with me through the entire process. She was a great support system and for me, acupuncture proved to be one of the best choices I made in dealing with my infertility issues. ~Lindsey B.
Traditional Chinese Medicine wisdom holds that reproductive potential is related to the qi and jing, or energy and essence, of the kidneys and that strengthening and regulating these with acupuncture and herbal medicine enhances fertility. These practices can be used either in conjunction with Western infertility treatment or as an alternative to help regulate and enhance fertility.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine may assist with modulating the systems of the body that regulate fertility, and may help induce ovulation, regulate menstrual cycles, prevent miscarriage and improve fertility indicators such as cervical mucous and uterine lining.
The following problems may be treated with acupuncture:
- Unexplained or autoimmune infertility
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Recurrent pregnancy loss
- Low progesterone / luteal phase defect
- Irregular menstruation
- Side effects associated with western fertility medications
In addition to fertility benefits, acupuncture can also enhance a person’s sense of well-being and relaxation making for an easier journey to conception.
