Acupuncture, is rapidly gaining popularity as an adjunctive therapy to IVF. It is very benign, minimally invasive and has virtually no adverse side-effects. Research shows that the provision of acupuncture treatments immediately before and after embryo transfer may significantly increases embryo implantation rates.
Other research has shown that acupuncture reduces mental stress and also changes the way stress hormones affect the neurological / hormonal (neuro-endocrine) and immune systems underlying sub-fertility.
Other research has found that acupuncture, especially around the time of the COH, improves pregnancy outcomes in women undergoing IVF.
Our acupuncturists Nobue and Tracy have many years of experience in working with IVF and ART. If you would like to discuss this more please contact the clinic on 01372 464659 to find out more.
