Yorkville (IL) Fertility
A woman’s menstrual cycle is regulated by hormones that increase the possibility for a pregnancy each month at the end of each cycle. In addition to a woman’s health and reproductive history, a balanced cycle is vital to fertility. If it is imbalanced and ovulation does not occur properly, a woman cannot become pregnant.
Beyond exercise and a healthy diet, fertility can benefit from ensuring that enough good blood and inner energy are flowing through the reproductive system. If you are a woman in Yorkville seeking assistance with fertility support, A Touch of Ginger can help balance hormones through acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbal medicine that contribute to a well-regulated menstrual cycle.
Just as important, our approach correctly addresses and treats underlying conditions that can interfere with the chances of a successful pregnancy.
What Is Acupuncture for Yorkville (IL) Fertility?
Acupuncture by A Touch of Ginger reinforces fertility for Yorkville women by focusing on the flow of the qi (pronounced chee) in the body.
Qi is the Chinese concept of the life force or energy that powers the body to perform. This essence runs through the body’s pathways with start and end points on the head, hands and feet. When qi is abundant and moving in concert with properly functioning organs, there is greater well-being.
When your qi is blocked and your organs are out of balance, your body sends distress signals that require attention. To release your qi, acupuncture uses very fine needles on the skin’s surface to stimulate particular points on the body. The targeted starting points will depend on your particular body and fertility challenges. In this way, acupuncture frees your blocked qi to once again promote and help maintain your reproductive health.

- length of menstruation
While regulating the cycle can take a few months, it is important to fertility. We will also address any elements that can disrupt the flow of your qi. Mental factors might include stress, anxiety or depression. Possible physical factors could be cysts, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease or digestive tract inflammation, to name just a few.
