How it works?
In the TCM view, human body is a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. Yin represents the cold, slow, or passive principle, while yang represents the hot, excited, or active principle. Health is achieved by maintaining the body in a "balanced state" of yin and yang. The imbalance leads to blockage in the flow of qi (or vital energy) and of blood along pathways known as meridians, and causes disease. Herbal medicine acupuncture and massage are used to unblock the flow of qi and blood in an attempt to bring human body back to “harmony and wellness”.
Acupuncture can help on infertility treatment and success of IVF by the following effects:
Regulating the body’s system
Aiding the blood flow to the reproductive organs
Stabilizing hormone levels
Easing the stress during attempt of conceiving or IVF
All these help to increase the women’s ovarian function as well as men’s sperm production.
