Acupuncture for women

We support our patients through the natural conception, infertility treatment or IVF.
We will plan the treatment according to your specific situation to make the rest of your fertility journey as easy as possible.

In Acuvitae you will get more than fertility acupuncture. You will learn how your body works and how to increase your chances of conception through diet, exercise and lifestyle. 

How does acupuncture work? 

According to many clinical trials acupuncture may be useful during IVF treatment and can increase the pregnancy and health rate at birth. 

In infertility treatment, Acupuncture may help by: 

- Hormonal regulation 

- Increasing microcirculation in the reproductive organs 

- Increasing egg production en quality 

- Reducing stress

- Promoting embryo implantation

Ideally, we would like to begin seeing you 3 - 4 months prior to conception/transfer so that we can help with egg quality, work on any cycle or lining irregularities, address any nutritional concerns and help reduce stress. If you are going through IVF we can also work on preparing you for your transfer. 

Acupuncture in menopause 

Hot flashes, insomnia, mood swings, or low libido? Acupuncture is proven to be working for these symptoms.

Many women in menopause can benefit from acupuncture. The symptoms that you are experiencing will help your practitioner to make a clear picture for creating a treatment plan specifically for you.  


How does Acupuncture work? 

The symptoms of menopause are seen in TCM as an imbalance between the cool, female energy Yin and warm male energy Yang. You can also see it as a misbalance in a production of male and female hormones. Decreased production of oestrogen leads to Yin deficit and growth of warmth in the body - hot flashes and sweating. Acupuncture treatment is aimed to support Yin and suppress Yang energy that results in reducing the symptoms.

Western medicine admits that positive effect of acupuncture in menopause may be achieved by:

- Hormonal regulation

- Vasodilatation

- Improving psychological well-being


6 to 10 acupuncture sessions given once to twice a week and their follow-up in 4 – 6 weeks can remarkably reduce hot flashes, improve emotional condition and quality of sleep.
