Does Fertility Acupuncture hurt? This is one of the questions that comes up when talking about Acupuncture time and time again. Sometimes I’m amazed how creative people’s imaginations can be around what is involved during an Acupuncture treatment.

No, no, no, Registered Acupuncturists aren’t sadistic, lovers of pain nor get some joy out of sticking people with needles. We are actually a genuinely caring bunch, everyday people, that lead very normal lives. Registered Acupuncturists have mastered the skill of needling gently and I’ll tell you how we do it.

The Business of IVF

by admin on June 23, 2016 No comments

A recent investigation into IVF Clinics by the Australian Media has highlighted the IVF Clinics and their marketing strategies. Do they make too many promises? Is it considered misleading, once you look at the statistics? For all the emotive language, imagery and some couple’s unwavering commitment to their fertility plans, can the marketing and business of IVF be taking advantage of people? The Australian Competitor and Consumer Commission (ACCC) are taking a closer look.

Fertility Acupuncture Featured in Manly Daily

by admin on August 9, 2015 No comments

Fertility Acupuncture was recently featured in a local newspaper, in regards to the growing popularity of Women seeking Acupuncture to include in their fertility plans. Whether using IVF or not, women are using natural therapies such as Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine to enhance their chances of success with conception.

Registered Acupuncturist & Chinese Herbal Medicine practitioner, Katika Funnell was interviewed by Manly Daily journalist, Kat Adamski regarding the popular trend. Katika had decided to develop a new wing to her current Acupuncture practice to cater especially for these couples trying to conceive and has designed a specific website for these clients called Spring Fertility.  Spring Fertility clients are treated at Katika’s clinic The Family Wellness Centre in Allambie Heights on Sydney’s Northern Beaches,

Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide practical support during your fertility journey. In this article, topics Katika & Kat discussed included Acupuncture in regards to Fertility, Pregnancy & Post-natal support, Acupuncture support during IVF and also to promote labour and pre-birth treatments.

Some couples try to conceive naturally without the help of IVF. If this is the case giving yourself plenty of time to get some important groundwork in place before really starting to try to fall pregnant is ideal. This means 3 months of preparation before trying to conceive is recommended. In that time a registered acupuncturist will work on ovulation, regulating period cycles and strengthening your body via the Qi, Blood & Kidney. This doesn’t apply to everyone, though.

The reality is we don’t all have the luxury of time on our side and this situation is different between each client that comes in. Some people begin Fertility Acupuncture once they’ve made a conscious decision to start trying or once they’ve been trying for some months. This is the more common scenario in clients that come for Acupuncture.

Spring Fertility can also provide short term treatments for women needing Acupuncture during IVF cycles and for Embryo Transfer. You can read more about these treatments here.

Whatever stage your at, Fertility Acupuncture at Spring Fertility can help you get your health and wellbeing in the best place possible prior to conceiving.
