Research has shown acupuncture to be an effective addition to the IVF process; particularly acupuncture at the time of the embryo transfer.

The “Paulus” study in 2001 showed a 42% increase in IVF success in patients who used acupuncture at the time of their embryo transfer, compared to a 26% success rate in women who did not have acupuncture at the transfer.

What we’ve seen over the years is that women who have consistent acupuncture fare even better in IVF cycles!

This is because they have spent time working with a skilled practitioner learning about fertile food choices, the importance of stress reduction, and the incorporation of more fertile thoughts. All of this combines to create an atmosphere of patient empowerment and reduced anxiety on the day of the embryo transfer.
