Can Acupuncture be used to treat infertility?

Acupuncture has been used as an effective tool to treat infertility for thousands of years. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the cause of infertility is understood to be due to imbalances and or deficiencies in the body. There has been extensive research regarding the effectiveness of Acupuncture in achieving a pregnancy particularly alongside treatments in Fertility Clinics.

What can you expect when you come to Franklin Acupuncture and Wellness Centre for your first infertility treatment?
