Women are often physically and emotionally depleted and have constrained energy that causes blockages, particularly in the pelvis. These blockages may present as painful menstrual cramps, endometriosis, fibroid tumors, PMS symptoms, irregular cycles, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and other disorders.
These disharmonies may result in difficulties with fertility by affecting different parts of the reproductive cycle - production of the egg, fertilization of the egg and implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterus.
Similar energy disturbances in men may result in poor sperm production (low sperm counts), shape or motility.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) seeks to address these problems with time-tested methodologies. TCM and acupuncture have been used for more than 5000 years to treat issues of female and male fertility and reproductive health. Since the aim of TCM is to "normalize," "harmonize," and "to bring into balance," these ideas are brought to bear on the problems associated with male and female infertility.
TCM manipulates the flow of Qi using acupuncture, and using Chinese herbs to nourish, support and strengthen the Qi and the vital fluids (including blood), as well as the internal organs. Using these natural fertility techniques, the possibility of conception is optimized.
