In a study published in Human Reproduction Journal 4, an ultrasound was used to evaluate blood flow to the uterus during acupuncture treatments. The study found blood flow increases during treatment. According to Dr. Nancy Snyderman, “when acupuncture needles are placed correctly, it can affect the nervous system. The idea is that you stimulate the nervous system, you can make the uterus quiet and allow blood to flow.” Relaxing the uterus and increasing blood flow allows for the successful implant of an embryo within the uterine lining.
Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can raise the fertility potential for women and men by affecting the quality, quantity, balance and flow of Qi and blood. When Qi (life energy) and blood are circulating freely throughout the body, every cell, tissue and organ is properly nourished and functioning. When this occurs, a person’s health and fertility are increased. A balanced body is a healthy and fertile body.
