Male Fertility Enhancement

Seattle, Tacoma & Bellevue Clinics

Did you know that a man’s fertility is as important as the woman’s, especially when it comes to miscarriage rates and the health of the child to be? And Traditional Chinese Medicine treats men as well as women.

Working with male factor is an often overlooked step in the pregnancy process, but one that we strongly suggest. Several studies have shown that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are often helpful for most sperm parameters.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine work with:

  • Low sperm count
  • Decreased sperm morphology
  • Poor liquefaction
  • Decreased sperm motility
  • Varicocele
  • Prostate swelling
  • Pre-mature ejaculation
  • Anxiety/Hopelessness/Depression

See the Research Pages for some of the research done with Chinese medicine and male factor infertility.

Even if you are “bypassing” the male factor with IVF/ICSI, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are helpful for getting the sperm/male partner as healthy as possible for passing on his genes to the next generation. Recent epigenetic research shows that the health of both parents at the time of conception affects which genes get turned on and off thereby affecting the future health of that child and if that child is female then you are potentially affecting your future grandchildren.
