IVF Support

IVF Support in Melbourne

In recent years, acupuncture has gained popularity as an alternative or complementary therapy for fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF). IVF is a complex process that varies in success, but IVF acupuncture may help to improve the effectiveness of the treatment. Acupuncture techniques can promote blood flow to the reproductive organs, increasing the chance of successful implantation. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, which can negatively impact fertility health. Consult with Pivotal Chinese Medicine today for advice on the most appropriate course of action for your circumstances.

IVF Acupuncture in Melbourne

At Pivotal Chinese Medicine, we offer IVF acupuncture in Melbourne to support and enhance the effectiveness of conventional fertility treatment for optimum health.

Chinese Medicine Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient 2,000-year-old Eastern technique for balancing the energy (Qi) in the body and unblocking obstructions that interfere with its natural healing mechanisms. It involves a qualified practitioner inserting very thin and sterile needles into meridian points of the body that correspond to different organs. The particular points vary according to the patient’s symptoms and needs. For those who want natural IVF support in Melbourne, acupuncture needles often target the reproductive systems. Patients usually feel little to no pain or discomfort during this process, but they may experience sensations such as a slight tingling, warmth or heaviness. Acupuncture is generally considered to be safe and has few side effects when performed by a qualified practitioner.

​Moxibustion in Melbourne

Moxibustion is the process of applying herbs to acupuncture needle points. A moxa cone is added to needles and then ignited, creating a warming sensation that penetrates deep into the skin, muscles and tissues. Moxibustion is commonly used to treat digestive disorders, menstrual cramps and chronic pain, but can also be used for IVF support. While the sensation of heat can be intense, it shouldn’t be painful, and many patients find the treatment to be soothing.

Electro-Acupuncture Therapy

Electro-acupuncture is a form of acupuncture that uses a low-level electrical current. During the procedure, acupuncture needles are attached to a device that delivers electric current via clips. This current stimulates the acupuncture points to provide additional therapeutic benefits. The amount and frequency of the electrical impulses will vary depending on the individual needs of the patient. Your practitioner will carefully determine the appropriate level of electrical stimulation for you based on your specific symptoms and health history.
