Laser Acupuncture for Fertility
Alive Holistic Health Clinic – Toronto
Many women (and men) in the Toronto area are learning about laser acupuncture for fertility and curious as to how it differs from traditional acupuncture treatment. From stress, lifestyle and dietary habits, advanced age to PCOS, endometriosis, hormone imbalances and other common gynecological conditions, there are countless things that may potentially impact your fertility. If you are seeking out a more natural way to enhance fertility that is non-invasive and completely safe, learn more about laser acupuncture and its benefits below.
Acupuncture treatment has long been used to promote and support fertility in traditional Chinese medicine and is becoming more common and accepted today among modern medicine practitioners. For the past four decades, many women have been undergoing Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) which may include hormonal treatment and/or invasive surgical procedures to treat infertility with a relatively low clinical success rate. Far from a guarantee, women and couples are seeking more natural methods to optimize their chances of conceiving. Laser treatment is beneficial whether you choose a completely natural route to improved fertility, or desire to complement traditional medical care. Since half of fertility problems is due to male factor, men can also benefit from treatment.
Why choose laser acupuncture for fertility in Toronto?
If you cannot fathom having tiny needles inserted into your skin, you are not alone. Many people have a genuine fear of needles (who we fondly call needle shy). While acupuncture treatment is generally painless, you still want a needle free alternative. Here is how laser acupuncture works:
Often referred to as “low level laser,” a low dose therapeutic laser using infrared light is used to stimulate acupuncture points that would typically be used with traditional acupuncture. You will not feel heat because of the low energy level. Laser acupuncture increases blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, which may improve egg quality by increasing cellular energy.
Interestingly, some cases of menopausal women were cited to resume menstruation after being treated with low level laser for a series of low back pain treatments. This regaining of ovarian function has prompted more ongoing investigations in laser treatment for infertility.
Some of the benefits of laser acupuncture for fertility include:
- Reduced inflammation
- Less stress and promotion of relaxation
- Enhanced bloodflow to reproductive cells and organs
- Hormonal balance
- Optimized implantation in IVF/IUI procedures
This is just a small sampling of the benefits – there is so much more to it! This type of laser treatment is ideal for those with poor egg quality or quantity, PCOS, endometriosis, diminished ovarian reserve, or who have not had success with IUI or IVF treatments. It is also recommended for those with unexplained infertility.
Laser acupuncture does enhance fertility, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle, stress reduction, herbal supplements and other areas of focus in traditional Chinese medicine.
