IVF Acupuncture in Melbourne
At Pivotal Chinese Medicine, we offer a range of services that may be of assistance throughout conventional fertility treatment to support optimum health.
Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient 2,000 year old Eastern technique for balancing the energy (qi) in the body. It involves a practitioner inserting very thin needles into meridian points (energy centres) of the body. The particular points that the needles are inserted into will vary according to the patient’s presenting symptoms and needs. Patients usually feel no pain during this process, with usual sensations being a slight tingling, warmth or heaviness in the areas where needles are inserted.
Moxibustion in Melbourne
Moxibustion is the process of applying herbs to the needle points. A moxa cone is added to needles and then lit up. The patient will feel a heating sensation but it should not be uncomfortable.
Electro-acupuncture therapy involves running a low current through the acupuncture points. Clips join the needles to a device that supplies electric current. The needs of each patient will be different, so your practitioner will determine the right electrical impulse for you.
What Are the Aims of Fertility Acupuncture in Melbourne?
Infertility acupuncture aims to create an optimum environment for IVF to successfully take place. This includes improving blood flow to the ovaries and endometrium, easing the side-effects of IVF treatment, and seeking to lessen anxiety that may be associated with the process.
Does Chinese Medicine Provide Natural Fertility Treatments?
Yes, all the treatments we provide for pregnancy acupuncture in Melbourne use only natural ingredients in the case of herbs. Our methods of acupuncture, moxibustion and electro-acupuncture are based on sound ancient Chinese wisdom that has been around for thousands of years.
What Does Acupuncture Therapy Cost?
The cost can vary based on your individual requirements. At Pivotal Chinese Medicine, we aim to provide a high level of knowledge and service at affordable prices, enabling you to get the depth of help you need whether that be from one session or many.
Is IVF Acupuncture in Melbourne Painful?
Perceptions of pain are always based on a person’s personal pain threshold. However, having said that, most people receiving acupuncture experience only tingling, warmth or heaviness at the insertion points of the needles.
