Acupuncture for Fertility

ilumina is Arizona's refuge for those seeking alternative or complementary treatment for infertility. We work with couples and singles trying to conceive naturally or with the help of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) — including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI).

Fertility Acupuncture Specialists

ilumina and its specialized practitioners have cultivated strong professional relationships with area obstetricians and Western fertility specialists. We offer cooperative treatment in conjunction with your medical doctor, or standalone care.

Many of our fertility patients come to our clinic as an alternative or precursor to consulting with a Western fertility doctor. Dr. Dana Price, ilumina’s founder and president, is a nationally-recognized expert in the field of infertility acupuncture and a pioneer in East Asian Reproductive Medicine and women’s health. Traditional Chinese Medicine has recently received more and more recognition for being a highly successful way to boost the fertility of both men and women. Dr. Price and ilumina’s highly-trained staff of acupuncturists and bodywork practitioners offer customized care for those seeking help creating families.

Fertility Acupuncture Benefits

Here are some ways in which acupuncture can influence fertility:

  1. Regulation of Hormones: Acupuncture helps regulate the endocrine system, including hormones that play a crucial role in the menstrual cycle and reproductive processes. This may include hormones such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estrogen, and progesterone.
  2. Improved Blood Flow to the Reproductive Organs: Acupuncture is thought to enhance blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. Improved blood circulation may provide better nourishment to the reproductive organs and create a more favorable environment for conception.
  3. Reduction of Stress: Stress and anxiety can have negative effects on fertility. Acupuncture is known for its potential to induce relaxation and reduce stress levels. Lower stress levels may positively impact reproductive function.
  4. Balancing the Body's Energy (Qi): Traditional Chinese medicine principles suggest that acupuncture helps balance the body's vital energy, known as Qi. Imbalances in Qi are thought to contribute to various health issues, and restoring balance may support overall well-being, including fertility.
  5. Support during Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART): Some individuals undergoing fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI) choose to complement their medical interventions with acupuncture.
