Acupuncture for General Wellbeing

 Theraputic acupuncture pressure points model

Acupuncture is a therapy that has been used for over 2000 years.  When the flow of energy is disturbed for any reason, there is disruption in health and balance, which results in pain or illness. By stimulating specific acupuncture points along these meridians, the energy is regulated and optimal health & balance is restored.

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) embodies this definition, by approaching health holistically.

Conditions treated with Acupuncture:

Women’s Health issues such as PCOS, endometriosis, irregular menstruation, hormonal imbalances, amenorrhoea (no period), pre-menstrual symptoms (mood swings, pain, bloating, breast tenderness etc), fertility, preparation for labour & induction and difficulties with menopause (e.g. hot flushes and insomnia).

Musculoskeletal disorders such as neck, shoulder and lower back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, RSI, frozen shoulder and tennis elbow.  Musculoskeletal conditions get great results with a combination of cupping and acupuncture.

Psychological conditions such as anxiety, nervousness, stress, depression, mood swings, emotional disturbances, smoking and other addictions.

Digestive disorders such as constipation, haemorrhoids, IBS, diarrhoea, reflux, nausea, decreased or strong appetite and bloating.

Neurological conditions such as headaches, migraines, nervous tension and difficulty sleeping.

Respiratory conditions such as sore throats, coughs, congestion, hay fever, sinusitis and the common cold and flu.

Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, pigmentation, shingles, acne and scars.

Fertility Acupuncture

Fertility Acupuncture

 Healthy baby assisted with Emma Quine's natural fertility acupuncture treatments

Fertility Acupuncture treatments help create the optimum environment to nurture a successful pregnancy and produce a healthy baby. Acupuncture is an effective and safe treatment method which helps to build a fertile environment by boosting Qi (energy) and blood; balancing the internal organs and meridians (energy pathways), and calming the mind. Fertility acupuncture treatments help clear any emotional or physical blockages you may have, thereby enhancing your overall health, well-being and chances of conceiving naturally.

To grow a garden, you need to have good quality, nutrient-rich soil, sunlight, and water to produce healthy plants. If you imagine trying to grow seeds without these elements it is unlikely that they will grow or thrive. Having regular acupuncture sessions is like 'preparing the soil' or uterine lining to be thick and nutrient rich. When the time comes it is much more likely your precious fertilised egg will embed and grow in the natural fertile soil you have prepared. 

Seven Fertility Boosting Benefits of Acupuncture:

  1. Reduces stress, which regulates hormones.
  2. Regulates the menstrual cycle and ovulation, making family planning easier.
  3. Improves blood flow to ovaries, thereby increasing ovarian response.
  4. Improves ovarian function, which encourages production of follicles & enhances egg quality.
  5. Increases blood flow to the uterus, encouraging a thicker endometrial lining, which enhances the chances of successful implantation.
  6. Lessens adverse side effects from hormonal treatments.
  7. Helps prevent miscarriage & increases your chances of producing a live birth and healthy baby.

When Should You Use Acupuncture for Infertility?

If you are thinking about preconception care it is advisable to start preparing now, to create a most favourable fertile environment. The follicles growth phase begins about 90 days before the egg is released. Due to this fact, weekly treatments are recommended three to four months prior to conception or commencement of an IVF/ICSI/IUI, in order to prepare the uterine lining, balance hormones, reduce anxiety and give your body the best chance of producing good quality eggs. Depending on your individual diagnosis treatment frequency varies. Even if you can’t start treatments 90-120 days before, acupuncture will still have a positive effect on your fertility regardless of when you start.

If you are undergoing an assisted cycle, additional treatments are recommended:

  1. After egg collection to reduce any local tissue trauma or bleeding and help to prepare a calm environment for the arrival of your precious embryo.
  2. Before transfer to calm the mind and circulate nutrient rich blood to the uterus.
  3. After transfer to reduce uterine cramping, reduce anxiety, increase chance of embryo implantation, and a successful pregnancy.
  4. Weekly after transfer to calm the mind, reduce anxiety and support your developing embryo.

If your conception is unsuccessful continue with weekly treatments until your next assisted cycle or attempt to conceive. If you have a successful pregnancy, weekly acupuncture until week 12-13 is suggested. Pregnancy acupuncture can help nourish your developing embryo, reduces chance of miscarriage, reduces morning sickness and anxiety, boosts your energy and so much more.
