Although you’d barely know it from the world of fertilty treatment, men play a huge role in fertility success. At the end of the day it’s a joint project. Acupuncture calms the system which can ease some of the stress and performance issues that men routinely encounter while trying to conceive or when they need to provide a semen sample for IUI or IVF. Acupuncture also improves blood flow in men with lower sperm counts due to varicocele. Our approach can significantly improve semen motility, and may also positively impact morphology and count. On another level, it can be helpful for both partners to participate in a nutrition and lifestyle program that supports fertility as well as the long term health of the desired children.
