Acupuncture is one of the complementary therapies used for fertility support. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture works on the principle that our individual health is maintained by an internal energy flow along specific channels, or meridians, within the body. This energy flow is known as Qi and when this energy is blocked or interrupted, then an imbalance in the function of body organs can occur. The meridians also correspond to the organs of the body and their functions, so blocked energy to the liver can make the whole system sluggish. Stimulating the specific acupuncture points, using a very fine needle, can help release energy and rebalance the body.
