Why is acupuncture good for fertility

Trying for a Baby without Success?

Diagnosed with Fertility Problems?

My aim is to help you on your fertility journey

I believe that treating you will not only aid natural fertility and support treatments but help you through the daily stress and anxieties of everyday life.

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to treat fertility problems by rebalancing the body. It looks at fertility using an holistic approach and takes into account the social, emotional and lifestyle factors as well as the physical mechanics of reproduction.

Why is acupuncture good for fertility

Acupuncture aims to:

  • Improve egg quality
  • Improve embryo quality
  • Improve the quality of the endometrium (womb lining)
  • Regulate hormones
  • Reduce chance of miscarriage
  • Strengthen the immune system

About to start an IVF cycle?

Using acupuncture for preparation while you are going through the IVF processes has become very common in recent years. Acupuncture can be useful during IVF for a number of reasons:

  • Helps with stess reduction
  • Aims to optimise your health as much as as possible
  • Works alongside the different phases of IVF to complement your IVF treatment
  • Reduce unwanted side effects of drugs

Do you suffer from PCOS, endometriosis, irregular periods?

Here at Worcester Acupuncture I work with women suffering from fertility problems. These include PCOS, endometriosis, immune disorders, recurrent miscarriage and unexplained fertility issues, as well as supporting women throughout their fertility and IVF treatments.

I also work with men who are experiencing problems; for example, poor motility, low sperm count and poor morphology.

What people say

Just wanted to thank you again for everything you did last year I really believe that the acupuncture helped balance my hormones and helped with the stress of the situation of trying for a baby.

I went into labour on Monday evening and successfully managed to have a natural birth Tuesday! I’m so pleased and was so relieved to avoid another section.

Thank you so much for your help and support. My husband and I practiced the acupressure points frequently from Sat evening to Monday. Or it may have been just chatting to you, relaxing and feeling I couldn’t do anymore to help move things along naturally… either way, thank you for your part.

We now have a perfect baby after a really great labour and birth, I couldn’t have hoped for better!

ET 2017

I was feeling ‘out of balance’ after my fall on the stairs.. The muscles had tensed up in my back to protect the injury –
So this was a lovely experience. When a skilled practitioner presses a point in your foot and you feel a small electric shock in your side…. So Bottom line – I’m a convert! It was SO gentle that I was urging her to ‘press harder’

But as enjoyable and relaxing as the session was – it was the buzz that I experienced in the car afterwards that was remarkable. I sat for over 30 minutes – completely motionless and let my body – put itself right. Felt buzzing – almost glowing. Fabulous !



I found the exercises and information really helpful
