Acupuncture is an ancient medicine originated from China over 3000 years ago and nowadays recognized across the world due to its benefits. It is based on the flow of our vital energy, called “Chi” and the Yin and Yang relationship, two opposite forces that complement and depend on each other and should be in a state of dynamic balance. When the smooth flow of Qi and the Yin and Yang balance is affected due to emotional, lifestyle, dietary, hereditary or climatic factors, health problems may occur, such as pain, menstrual problems and infertility. Like Yin and Yang, the hormones, too, are in a constant state of dynamic flux. By balancing Yin and Yang and smooth Qi, Acupuncture is able to balance the hormones and treat a number of gynaecological disorders.

*Research shows that these have a positive effect on fertility and conception rates ( / or) due to its effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal-cortex axis, regulating the correct secretion of hormones in the body, influencing the menstrual cycles and thus fertility. The increase of endorphins (happy hormones) production reduces the stress hormone (cortisol) increasing life quality and allowing the body to better cope with all the changes through pregnancy. Moreover, the increase of blood flow leads the reproductive organs to its optimum ability in males and females and also improves ovulation and egg implantation.
