This type of massage uses a variety of hand techniques such as rolling, friction, pressing and kneading—similar to Western massage. Tui Na also incorporates other manipulation techniques including acupuncture and acupressure. Muscles are targeted at different acupressure points throughout the body, just like in acupuncture, to remove blockages and rejuvenate the flow of Qi vital energy. You will leave your massage session feeling loose, refreshed, and energized!

These are goals of acupuncture treatment and IVF:

  • To improve the function of the ovaries to produce better quality eggs

  • To promote uterine relaxation and reduce stress level
  • To increase blood flow to the pelvic region in order to optimize receptivity of embryo implants
  • To lessen side effects of drugs
  • To prevent miscarriages

Acupuncture can be helpful for the following conditions which can attribute to infertility:

  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Uterine fibroid
  • Ovarian cyst
  • Anovulation
  • Luteal phase defect
  • Tubal blockage
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

Many reasons can cause infertility according to Chinese Medicine. It can be due to a liver or kidney imbalance, Qi stagnation or Blood deficiency.
