Having served the Park Slope community for over 30 years, we have been blessed to help many prospective mothers increase their chances of conception using acupuncture. Many couples come to us having tried seemingly everything else with no luck- the despair of struggling to conceive is a heart-rending scene and it motivates us to put all our services at their disposal. Read on to find out how acupuncture helps couples conceive.
There are myriad treatments and options for a couple who are unable to conceive- from fertility drugs to IVF, you may be overwhelmed by choice; but many of these options are effectively out of reach because of their cost. Most people turn to acupuncture as a last resort, when in fact it makes sense to use it as a first resort. Acupuncture is cheaper, with little-to-no side-effects, and studies are consistently showing it to have great effect in randomized trials. Especially when used alongside traditional fertility treatments, acupuncture can greatly increase your chance of getting pregnant. But how?

Acupuncture directly helps to lower stress levels by releasing endorphins in the brain. Further effects include increasing circulation to the reproductive organs and contributing to balance in the reproductive system of both men and women.
