Male Fertility Treatments
When it comes to male fertility, acupuncture acts much like a gardener – preparing the body so that the seeds can be nourished, and then used to grow into a healthy pregnancy. Whether it’s low sperm quality, low sperm motility or a low sperm count, holistic natural therapies like acupuncture therapy, Chinese herbal medicine therapy, reflexology therapy, and remedial massage therapy can indeed help get your boys back on track and your family underway.
Used on its own or in conjunction with orthodox reproductive medicine, such as IVF, IUI, GIFT or ICSI, acupuncture is a widely recognized male – and female – infertility treatment. In fact, men who receive acupuncture for infertility issues and sperm production problems boast healthier, more active, mature sperm – all prerequisites to fertilizing a healthy egg – with fewer structural defects, fewer immature sperm, and less experiencing premature death.
As a result, Austin Therapies Fertility Acupuncture Clinic Brisbane offers a range of male fertility treatments including:
- Acupuncture Therapy
- Chinese Herbal Medicine Therapy (where appropriate)
- Supplements (where appropriate)
- Remedial Massage Therapy, and
- Reflexology Therapy.
However, it takes two to make a baby – as you know – so why not bring your partner to ensure her body is optimally balanced and harmonious to receive your healthy sperm? Acupuncture can stimulate ovulation, regulate hormonal cycles, promote the function of the corpus luteum (increasing progesterone production) and increase uterus blood flow to ensure an optimum environment for conception and a healthy baby.
Did you know for instance, that stress not only has a direct impact on a woman’s ability to conceive, but her ability to carry the baby to full term? Stress in the body not only kills healthy sperm making it difficult to conceive, but can terminate an otherwise healthy pregnancy prematurely. However in many cases, especially in those who have unexplained infertility, acupuncture can be enough to treat underlying distress to turn things around for both of you. And treating both partners can make a big difference to the chances of, and speed of, a successful conception.
