Stress is a leading factor during fertility treatments. Many symptoms can be alleviated by acupuncture and/or massage.
Infertility can be highly stressful and emotional devastating. This overall stress is taxing on the body, depleting you of both physical and mental energy. We recommend speaking with a Counselor as part of your routine fertility care.
Completing the full mind and body approach, we also recommend a nutrition evaluation to complement your overall treatment plan.
Acupuncture proponents have recommended it for a variety of medical conditions that affect fertility. These include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, endometriosis, and issues with ovarian reserve and sperm quality. It may also help relieve some of the side effects associated with fertility drugs (such as bloating and nausea). Acupuncture has been shown to promote relaxation. Please speak with our staff prior to scheduling your acupuncture or massage therapy, as it should be avoided during specific times of fertility treatment.
Contact First State Health and Wellness to schedule your evaluation. Please advise them you are undergoing fertility treatment.
