Pregnancy Acupuncture

acupunctureOur team of specialists can support you during your pregnancy. We commonly treat patients from the day they find out they are pregnant up to their delivery date. We specialise in pre and post delivery to help support our pregnant patients during the last weeks of pregnancy an the first few weeks after delivery. We highly recommend having acupuncture for at least the first twelve weeks of pregnancy to support you and your babies needs.

IVF Acupuncture Support

ivfPreparing properly for assisted fertility treatments is even more important than if you are trying for a baby naturally. Our clinic supports on average of seven Pre and Post IVF transfer treatments a week  and numerous IUI preparation treatments. Over half of our patients are currently with the Cork Fertility Clinic. As we are located 5 minutes from the Cork Fertility Clinic, we ensure an efficient and relaxing Pre and Post IVF and IUI treatment, enhancing your chances of a successful outcome.
Embarking on IVF can be very demanding and stressful. Our experience has shown that the right physical, nutritional, and emotional support before and during the treatment can help to remove these stresses and strains and enhance your overall well-being. We can help keep you positive and in the right mind-set. We usually recommend that clients who wish to undergo IVF, start with an "IVF Acupuncture Support Consultation" with one of our fertility consultants, the session can be used to talk you through a personalised Acupuncture plan of the things that can be done for you and your partner to help your chances of conceiving successfully.
Ideally, we like to see you at least three months before your IVF cycle is due to begin. However, there are still plenty of useful things we can do to help if the interval is shorter.

Fertility Massage

picture 1 of clinic

We provide fertility massage to patients. The treatment will improve the functioning of your reproductive organs through direct massage of the abdomen. The technique will redirect the blood supply of the lower abdomen into the uterus and ovaries, resolving the energetic blockages and improving their function and response. Most women with poor ovarian response have shown to have reduced ovarian blood flow. This massage will help to increase flow, therefore increasing chances of a successful pregnancy. Note: Reproductive massage can only be preformed from the start of menstruation up to ovulation.

Fertility Nutrition

foodAt AcuLife Cork, we will devise a program specifically tailored to your needs and goals. Such programmes are part of our a holistic treatment approach. The food we eat, the air we breathe and our daily interactions all become part of our cellular body. Through an evaluation of your nutrition and lifestyle patterns (awareness practices, exercise frequency, and food choices) we will uncover what types of nourishment your body needs to heal both emotionally and physically in order to become more open to conception. We will create a comprehensive program for you to incorporate into your daily life that will enhance your fertility to allow for a healthy pregnancy.
