Fertility and IVF

Acupuncture for Fertility and IVF in Cambridge and Guildford


Francois’ acupuncture treatments for enhancing fertility and therefore advancing the positive outcome of natural pregnancy or IVF pregnancies have brought great happiness to many couples.

Francois uses Traditional Chinese Medicine to enhance fertility by restoring balance to the body and the internal systems responsible for regulating hormones. Francois has been working in this field for over thirty years.

“James and I wanted to say how grateful we are for all that you did for us. We are sure that without your treatment we would still be waiting for our turn at IVF”.

Acupuncture Research Results For Fertility

Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Centre in New York have concluded that Acupuncture has the following beneficial effects:

  • Regulates the menstrual cycle.
  • Reduces anxiety and stress and hormones secreted during stressful situations, such as cortisol, which significantly decreases fertility.
  • Increases blood flow to the uterus, thus thickening the uterine lining, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the uterine wall.
  • Normalizes the systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
  • Positively affects the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a major role in fertility.
