Womens Health – Fertility – Pregnancy – IVF Support

Women's Health

At Embrace Acupuncture, we like to work in with your existing health care practitioner for a more collaborative and holistic approach. You may be referred for tests & scans (where applicable) to rule out serious pathologies, diagnose deficiencies and accurately ascertain what your body needs to be at its healthiest.

Acupuncture has been used for to improve health including women’s health for over 2000 years. Scientific research is only just beginning to understand exactly how Acupuncture works.
One of the ways Acupuncture is thought to rebalance hormones is by regulating your body’s stress response and to regulate cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body. By not being in a stressed ‘fight or flight’ response mode as often, this then allows the body and its hormones to rebalance and keep working as it should. Acupuncture is often used for pain relief and can also improve blood flow to the uterus allowing it to work more efficiently.
We are currently updating our research page to bring you the latest women’s health research.

Fertility & Pregnancy

Chinese Medicine seeks to restore flow and balance for optimal health and wellbeing. Some look to Chinese Medicine as a fresh approach, a new way of seeing things to enhance their health to discover if this may improve their fertility, while others chose to use it alongside conventional fertility treatments such as IVF.

At Embrace Acupuncture, we like to incorporate the best of Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine as an integrative approach to health and fertility. We combine the information from fertility tests and scans and BBT charting with Chinese Medicine theory to form a unique diagnosis and treatment plan. Then we incorporate Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, diet therapy, stress reduction and collaborate with allied health professionals to provide holistic, personalised care.

Stress & Anxiety

Acupuncture is a beautiful, calming treatment that works to soothe the nervous system and relax the mind. Most recent evidence suggests Acupuncture works by switching the mind and body out of the ‘fight or flight’ stress mode and into the calm ‘rest and restore’ mode. This means the body can then focus on its normal functions and heal. See some research on this here and a find a blog on anxiety here.

Herbs may be useful in complimenting Acupuncture and working to treat the physical symptoms of your stress.
