Acupuncture for General Health
Acupuncture is a proven and safe treatment therapy for many medical conditions. Most new patients seek acupuncture treatment for a presenting condition that they have tried all other treatments from conventional Western medicine or other therapies, with no results. Therefore are seeking an alternative solution to heal their pain and presenting condition/s. Acupuncture is a natural therapy which encourages homeostasis in your body (promotes the ability of your body to heal itself).
Treatment is customised to each individuals needs. Duration length is based on condition. For an acute condition 1-3 sessions. For moderate conditions approx 6 sessions. For chronic or multiple medical conditions 1 treatment course of 10 sessions, then a review. A precise treatment course will depend on the cause and triggers of the illness, nature and duration of the condition, family history, diet and lifestyle, as well as physical body type composition, and emotional health. The healing process length can be reduced by ingesting herbal medicine between acupuncture treatments and following dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
Once you have completed your initial treatment course and are no longer in pain or experiencing ailments many people choose to stop treatments. For those interested in preventing future illness and their conditions/symptoms coming back they may choose a preventative and maintenance health plan. For example, some patients who have experienced severe colds, sinus and hay fever annually in the Spring since childhood come in once a year before the Spring season to boost their immune system. Other clients who have stressful events coming up, or known busy work periods such as the end of the financial year tax scheduled, come in for a treatment one week prior to the event to decrease their anxiety/stress levels. Other clients who like more ongoing support, can opt for treatment once a month for general health checkups and maintenance.
Acupuncture for Women's/Fertility Health
Many women suffer from gynaecological conditions. Most commonly endometriosis, PCOS, PMS, subfertility, or menopausal symptoms. Acupuncture can assist with these conditions to help regulate your cycle and reduce your symptoms.
Nowdays it is very common for people to experience difficulty with fertility. Acupuncture is well known to be able to provide natural preconception care.
For women wishing to conceive, the ideal preparation treatment time is 3 x regular consistent menstrual cycles (regular follicular development, ovulation timing, and luteal phase early pregnancy support preparation). For men, 72-90 days for sperm production changes (volume, sperm count, PH levels, DNA, morphology size and shape).
For assisted IVF support, the ideal preparation time is as per the above 3 months recommendation, to prepare an optimal embryo and the uterine lining for implantation and early pregnancy support. However if time is limited there are two recommended options:
Once a week during the current IVF cycle (for short or long cycles). This will assist with follicular stimulation, reduce swelling from egg collection, embryo transfer implantation support, and reduce anxiety levels before HCG results.
Or on the day of embryo transfer, a before and after treatment (within 24hrs of your transfer). The pre-embryo transfer treatment is designed to supply blood flow to the uterus, and the post-embryo transfer treatment is designed for implantation support.
Note, the above is a guideline, you can start fertility Acupuncture treatment at any time, as your treatment plan is specifically designed for you and where you are on your journey.
