Natural Fertility and Pregnancy Care

Safe and Cost-Effective Solutions Book NowLearn More

At our Sunshine Coast acupuncture clinic, we can help to improve fertility by…

Reducing Stress

Stress & anxiety are often major factors affecting fertility and IVF outcomes. Acupuncture has been shown to effectively reduce stress in many scenarios, including in women undergoing IVF treatment (1,2).

Balancing Hormones

Acupuncture helps to regulate reproductive hormones to improve the uterine lining and regulate the menstrual and ovulatory cycles (3, 4, 5)

Optimising Blood Flow

Acupuncture can help to optimise blood flow to the uterus and ovaries (6), and improve the receptivity of the uterine lining (7), which is important for a healthy conception and pregnancy.

Increasing IVF Chances

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been shown to increase pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF treatment (8, 9).

Acupuncture treatments are…

Cost-Effective

Six months of acupuncture treatment is less than one third of the cost of a single round of IVF*

Natural

Acupuncture utilises the body’s innate healing capacity, to promote physical, emotional and reproductive health without the use of synthetic chemicals.

Gentle

Acupuncture is gentle and incredibly relaxing – many patients report falling asleep or going into deep relaxation during treatment.

Safe

Acupuncture is an extremely safe therapy when performed by a registered acupuncture professional (10). All of our acupuncturists are fully qualified and registered.

*Based on weekly acupuncture sessions valued at $80 each, compared to a $6,000 IVF cycle.
