Did you know?

  • In the UK, 1 in 7 couples face fertility problems and many are unable to afford private IVF treatments.
  • Conception may be straightforward and easy, or it may take years to become pregnant.
  • Acupuncture plays a pivotal role in helping couples on their journey to parenthood.
  • Most of us don’t know how fertile we are until it is time to start a family.

How acupuncture supports fertility:

Healthy fertility always involves both partners. Western medicine focuses heavily on the woman because of the complex nature of female hormones, yet sperm quality and health are just as important.

For couples who have been trying to conceive for some time, or who are undergoing assisted fertility or IVF, acupuncture complements standard medical care and can be used safely alongside medications and hormone treatments.

Acupuncture helps with fertility by:

The clinical and experimental evidence suggests that acupuncture supports fertility in a variety of ways:

  • Through modulating the balance of hormones (oestrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) in the reproductive and nervous systems. This is particularly helpful in cases of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and endometriosis.
  • Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs which in turns enhances the delivery of nutrients.
  • Down regulating inflammation.
  • Improving sperm maturation.
  • Lowering scrotal temperature to support sperm production and quality.
  • Helping manage the negative effects of stress.

Specialist support for couples wishing to conceive with acupuncture in York

  • I will help you identify any health matters and support your overall health and well being which will optimise your chances of conceiving.
  • As well as improving the success rates of medical fertility treatments, acupuncture can also reduce unpleasant side-effects such as nausea and sickness, and help couples deal with the stress of these procedures.
  • Most clients enjoy at least one series of six sessions, which may be weekly or bi-weekly, depending on your needs. Some clients continue for longer, especially when undergoing IVF or other fertility treatments.

Tiziana has really looked after us, she’s very patient, respectful, professional, great listener, absolutely amazing and very honest.
With all these qualities and her blessed hands with acupuncture we are proud to say that we are finally PREGNANT!

I would 100% recommend Tiziana over and over again.

Sabrina Driffield

I had read several positive reviews on Tiziana and the application of acupuncture to support my body in case of another pregnancy and it was 100% successful.

I have happily discovered that I was pregnant last July and during the last few months I went back to see Tiziana for a further slot of 6 sessions to help me with more varicose veins that came consequentially to the pregnancy.

Fran Biagi

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Tiziana treating both me and my husband when we’ve been trying to conceive.
We have just gotten the news that our IVF worked and I’m convinced acupuncture played a big part in this.
Tiziana treated us in the months leading up to IVF including the day of embryo transfer.

Thank you Tiziana!
