Offering Natural Fertility and IVF (ART) Support to couples and individuals in the South West of England.

Your first port of call is to book a FREE 15-minute acupuncture consultation or an Initial Fertility Acupuncture Online Consultation with Clinical Director and Traditional Five Element Acupuncturist Paul Adkins.

An Initial Consultation is very in-depth and utilises a comprehensive pre-appointment questionnaire for Paul to work with you to devise the most appropriate treatment plan for your needs. This session will allow you to discuss all aspects of fertility, including patient history, lifestyle, diet, and required acupuncture treatment.

Please bring ante-natal notes if you have them. Upon booking, your fertility questionnaire will be emailed to you for completion before your appointment.

Clients must undertake an Initial Fertility Acupuncture Online Consultation before Positive Acupuncture can recommend a course of treatment.

Paul will work with you to devise a plan of action that may include a range of services depending on your requirements.

Research Evidence

Acupuncture has been used as a fertility treatment as early as 11AD, as documented in Chinese texts.

An increasing amount of research evidence demonstrates that acupuncture may support Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Nausea, Back Pain, Pregnancy, IVF, Fertility Management, Endometriosis and pre and post-embryo transfer.

Acupuncture may help as a stand-alone fertility treatment. However, research shows that it can be very successful when used alongside IVF treatments:

A German study in 2002 showed that of 80 women who underwent IVF treatment and received acupuncture, 34 women got pregnant. Of 80 women who had IVF without acupuncture, only 21 fell pregnant.

More recently, an American study found that out of 114 women who had IVF and acupuncture, 51% got pregnant compared to only 36% without acupuncture.

Acupuncture research shows that it also has high success rates for male fertility:

A 2005 study conducted by Shanghai University in China found that of the men who participated, those who had acupuncture had an increased percentage of sperm in their semen, and the sperm structure was healthier than their counterparts who did not receive acupuncture.
