Acupuncture Therapy Basics

Acupuncture points are located on meridians through which gi vital energy runs. The procedure involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin in targeted areas of the head, torso, limbs and extremities. These needles are inserted at various depths, depending upon the patient’s diagnosed medical condition.

A healthy body is the result of a harmonious balance of the life force known by traditional Chinese medicine as gi or chi – energies flowing through pathways within the body. There are 350 acupuncture points in the human body. The body’s energy pathways are accessed through the insertion of small, thin needles in targeted areas of discomfort to release or redirect the body’s energy. Through acupuncture therapy, the body is brought back into its proper balance.

The acupuncture points chosen for treatment of female infertility result in:

  • Better blood perfusion and energy in the uterus
  • Relaxation of the patient
  • Stabilization of the endocrine system
