  Acupuncture For Fertility

Fertility Acupuncture Dunshaughlin Acupuncture Dun LaoghaireAcupuncture can greatly help those having difficulty conceiving by promoting movement towards the mental, emotional and physical balance required for natural conception and a healthy pregnancy.

Overwork/overexertion, stress, wrong eating habits and the kind of physiology we are born with can all upset the body’s interacting systems. This can cause imbalance of the physical harmony required in both male and female reproductive function, leading to difficulty conceiving.

Luckily, each kind of imbalance presents with particular symptoms that an able Chinese Medicine Practitioner can use to determine the nature of treatment required.

Thus, At Morning Star Acupuncture Sandycove and Morning Star Acupuncture Dunshaughlin – Ashbourne, we place great emphasis on taking a detailed assessment of each case. This allows us to choose points and tailor treatment  for each client, so that the best results possible can be achieved.

Typically, during the treatment period the symptoms of imbalance will gradually recede until the balance required for conception is restored. The client will be able to observe these changes and thus have confidence that they are on the way to the desired outcome.

Treatment is usually recommended to be given weekly over a period of at least three months, and often longer, to give the best chance of a healthy outcome.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can help you.

  Acupuncture During Pregnancy

Fertility Acupuncture Dunshaughlin Acupuncture SandycoveAcupuncture can be safely used throughout pregnancy in order to promote maternal and foetal health, to treat the many common health disorders that can occur, to naturally ease the discomfort and difficulties of labour and even to promote labour and correct breech presentation. As there are only very occasional minor side effects to acupuncture and no harmful effects, many women who are looking to ensure that no harm comes to their little one are choosing the therapy over conventional drug treatments where applicable.

Common pregnancy conditions treated include:

  • Musculoskeletal Pain

  • Miscarriage, Small for Dates Babies, Breech and Posterior Positioned Babies, Pre-birth Treatment to Prepare the Body for an Efficient Labour

  • Nausea and Vomiting, Heartburn, Constipation

  • Urinary Difficulties/Infections, Thrush and Abnormal Vaginal Discharge

  • Fatigue and Exhaustion, Anaemia, Insomnia, Anxiety and Depression

  • Itching in Pregnancy, Sinusitis, Pregnancy-Induced Hypertension, Oedema

  • Induction, Pain Relief and Problems During Labour

  Acupuncture For Postpartum Conditions

Fertility Acupuncture Dunshaughlin Acupuncture AshbourneThe Chinese Medicine understanding of the time after giving birth is markedly different from that seen in western society. A mother’s body has been through a great stress and the need for proper rest and nourishment is emphasised. It is considered to be normal that the force required for delivery causes depletion of energy and blood. They understood that the body’s energy balance can be upset causing physical and mental difficulties.

Thus, acupuncture treatments for health problems that may arise postpartum have been used successfully for thousands of years in China.

With the requirements in the west for mums to play an active part in family life shortly after birth, these treatments are even more relevant to help overcome common ailments that may occur.

Acupuncture successfully treats the following postpartum conditions :

  • Fatigue

  • Persistent Lochial Discharge

  • Post-natal Depression

  • Mastitis, Insufficient or Excessive Lactation

  • Abdominal Pain after Birth, Urinary Difficulty, Constipation and Haemorrhoids

  • Musculoskeletal Pain

  • Sweating and Fever
