Acupuncture is proving to be more and more popular with both couples who are having trouble conceiving and with Western medicine which is realising the value in the use of traditional acupuncture for the treatment of infertility.
Around 1 in 7 couples in the UK have trouble conceiving, which means approximately 3.5 million people are affected by infertility through out the UK.
Acupuncture can help couples conceive, both women and men, as it has a number of positive effects on certain biological functions in the body that directly and indirectly help infertility issues.
