Moreover, it is highly advisable for maintaining good health and as a prevention of possible complications conditions may have in the future.

Natural fertility

In most cases, infertility is declared by unknown causes. The clinical tests do not explain why the desired pregnancy does not occur, everything seems to be fine…

Acupuncture and other techniques we offer such as herbal medicine and moxibustion are highly recommended and appropriate to improve the conditions that favor the desired pregnancy:

Improved blood flow, uterine irrigation and endometrial growth, menstruation regulation, oocyte quality improvement, stress reduction, increased libido, energy level, etc.

As always, we have to study each case and each condition in order to apply the most appropriate treatments

Support in IVF and IUI

Acupuncture, herbal medicine and moxibustion are techniques of proven efficacy with scientific evidence, to support and enhance the results of Assisted Reproductive Techniques such as IVF and IUI.

We know that resorting to IVF involves a great financial effort, among many other costs… in entails stressful processes of great emotional involvement.

Therefore, we put all our knowledge and great care to be able to increase the chances of success in the desired pregnancy.

HOW?

We are well acquainted with Assisted Reproduction Techniques, we complement them and work in parallel. We improve the conditions that favor pregnancy, increasing the chances of success:

Increased blood flow, enhanced ovarian response (oocyte quantity and quality), improved uterine blood flow and uterine lining growth, relaxation of the uterus and its contractions, stress reduction…

We can verify this with numerous research studies, based on scientific evidence (increase to more than 65% of probabilities of pregnancy and improvement of different physiological conditions ...).

WHEN?

We can use the effects of acupuncture at different stages of the process:

Before starting ovarian stimulation.
To regulate menstruation and get the body ready before the overexertion that ovarian stimulation implies.

Accompanying ovarian stimulation until pick up or follicular aspiration.
To optimize the results of oocyte stimulation, quantity and quality. Also, to reduce possible side effects and discomfort derived from the stimulation treatment and reduce stress.

ACUPUNCTURE ON TRANSFER DAY

Numerous scientific research studies have evaluated the beneficial effects of acupuncture on the same day as embryo transfer.

This is increasingly known, recognized and demanded. Both in our country as in other countries. In fact, we have been treating for many years patients who travel from abroad and have acupuncture on their transfer day.

Different doctors and Assisted Reproduction Clinics recommend us, such as Barcelona IVF, where they have incorporated our specialized services. Also, associations such as Asociación She Oak.

We carry out two sessions, one before and one after the transfer. The two sessions complement each other based on a protocol with very good results in clinical trials. It is specially indicated to favor the implantation of embryos. We always adapt the protocol to each case so that it is truly effective.

We adapt ourselves to transfer date and time to be able to do these treatments on any day of the year, and we modify our planned schedules if necessary.

Pregnancy Follow-Up

Follow-up and support during the first trimester of pregnancy, treatment of nausea and other discomforts, fetal malposition, fluid retention, digestive discomfort, lower back pain…
 
Pregnancy is a very special moment, sometimes accompanied by some discomforts and needs. With adequate acupuncture treatments we can treat these ailments and gain well-being in a simple and totally safe way.
 
At Hari Acupuncture we often work with pregnant women, especially during the first and third trimesters of pregnancy.

Postpartum recovery

Pregnancy and childbirth are two processes that involve extraordinary physical effort. The mother’s body experiences in just a few months, a whole series of hormonal, physiological, physical and emotional changes that make these two wonderful events possible.

After the overexertion that enables the gestation and delivery of a child, it is very important, for the present and future well-being of the mother, to be able to get a good recovery.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine with Chinese medicinal herbs, as well as rest which is necessary for the mother after childbirth, are of great help in this special moment.

Menstrual disorders and peri menopause

Menstrual irregularities, abdominal pain or low back pain, headache or pain in the breasts … Absence of menstruation, little fluid, little or excessive bleeding … Hot flashes, night sweats, dryness, irritability, insomnia or depressed mood around menopause …

From the start of menstruation until its withdrawal, we find various symptoms and imbalances that we sometimes accept as normal. Instead, these often are irregularities and dysfunctions, which we can treat very effectively with acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques.

The symptoms around menstruation and menopause also give us a lot of information about our state of health. With the treatment of these symptoms, we achieve well-being, in addition to regulating organic functions that were imbalanced.
