Best Fertility Acupuncturists in Geelong
The ancient Chinese remedy, Acupuncture, has assisted a number of happy couples in conceiving.
Most acupuncturists have an incredible background in reproductive medicine and are aware of the struggle that couples face. So, if you wish to try a safe and natural remedy for conception, take a look at our list of top 10 acupuncturists in Geelong.
The burden of getting pregnant can be a weighty one. Couples who are unable to conceive immediately, tend to suffer from poor mental health and emotional exhaustion. Fortunately, there is a range of solutions to allow you to attain the optimal condition for conceiving.
While some couples may jump straight to medical solutions such as IVF, a growing number of women are considering natural remedies, such as fertility acupuncture.
Having said that, this doesn’t mean that we’re trying to endorse fertility acupuncture over the medical ART treatments such as IVF, IUI etc.
A recent study in the journal of Complementary Therapies in Medicine shows that women are twice as likely to get pregnant within a four month period using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine than those using IVF or Western medical fertility drug therapy.
The remedy has also shown to increase blood flow to reproductive organs, balance the endocrine system, relieve stress, and aid in weight loss. For best results, 2 to 3 months of treatment are recommended.
But again, that’s just one of the studies, I’ve personally met people who’ve had both successful and unsuccessful pregnancies with both medical (e.g. IVF) and the natural therapies (e.g. fertility acupuncture) so it all depends on case to case basis!
Without further ado, here are the top fertility acupuncturists in Geelong.
