How Acupuncture can Help with Fertility
Research indicates that Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine can be successfully used to help regulate menstrual cycles, reduce stress, and support FERTILITY whether trying to get pregnant naturally or using IVF, IUI, or any other treatments.
The benefits of acupuncture for fertility (female AND male) can have numerous positive effects, including:
- Higher rates of pregnancy and live births
- Regulation of erratic menstrual cycles
- Hormone regulation that helps produce higher numbers of follicles during IVF stimulation
- Increased blood flow to the reproductive organs and increased thickness of the uterine lining
- Improved sperm quality and quantity
- Relief from side effects of fertility medications
- Reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression, and deep relaxation
- Strengthened the immune system
How can It Help?
Acupuncture has been recommended to help relieve conditions that affect fertility, such as:
- Diminished Ovarian Reserve
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Irregular Menstrual Cycles
- Premature Ovarian Failure
- Advanced Maternal Age
- Luteal Phase Defect/Low Progesterone Levels
- Recurrent Miscarriages
- Poor Egg Quality
- Thin Uterine/Endometrial Lining
- Unexplained Fertility
- High or Elevated FSH
One of the factors that could be preventing pregnancy is stress. Studies have shown that women going through IVF under stress decreases the pregnancy rate. Acupuncture is deeply relaxing to both the mind and body, helping to reduce the internal stress and anxiety that often accompanies your fertility journey.
Helps With IVF
Some studies have shown that acupuncture before an IVF can have a positive effect on the success rates of pregnancy. The relation may come from the relaxation that acupuncture promotes.

The Future of Acupuncture is Here!
Acupuncture provides many benefits for people suffering from all types of conditions, discomfort, and pain. Everyone should have the opportunity to find the perfect form of therapy to obtain relief. However, the idea of needles can often stop someone from considering acupuncture as a therapy. Laser therapy has grown in all medical fields, including acupuncture treatments. As a result, “Laserpuncture” was created and is continuously becoming more popular. Laserpuncture has evolved over time, allowing more people to experience the benefits of acupuncture. If you do not like needles or maybe even suffer from trypanophobia, Compassion Acupuncture has the perfect remedy for you; The LaserPen.
RJ-LASER is an innovative laser company that originated in Germany and has impacted the wellness world since 1982. RJ-LASER was the first company to produce a compact yet powerful pen-shaped device for medical use. About 10,000 physicians across the globe use their products. As their technology evolves, more physicians recognize the high-tech options they offer.
LaserPen by RJ-LASER
The LaserPen is a high-tech device bringing convenience and comfort to many people worldwide. The LaserPen can work on small and large points through pulse-controlled laser acupuncture stimulation. This RJ-LASER Therapy System allows our patients to experience Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), which initiates a series of physiological reactions at the cellular level improving tissue repair and reducing pain and inflammation wherever the laser beam is applied.
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) “Laserpuncture”
Laser Therapy Acupuncture uses the principle of traditional acupuncture by stimulating a laser beam instead of a penetrating needle. The laser beam can produce low-heat light and is an electromagnetic wave, stimulating the acupuncture point of the human body without using needles. LLLT has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain.
Just like acupuncture treatments with needles, Laserpuncture provides the same benefits! Benefits of Laserpuncture include…
- Boost blood circulation & enhance performance
- Increase muscle relationation
- Reduces nerve pain, inflammation
- Relieves muscle injury and joint pains
- Accelerates wound healing and tissue rejuvenation
Over 200 randomized clinical trials have been published on LLLT, half of which are on pain, such as:
- Neck & Back Pain
- Shoulder, Elbow, & Hand Pain
- Hip & Knee Pain
- Ankle & Foot Pain
- Muscle Pain & Tightness
- Issues with Function & Flexibility
- Pre & Post Operative Conditions
- Scar Tissue
- Numbness & Tingling
Advantages of Laser Acupuncture Treatments
Laserpuncture sessions, such as treatments with the LaserPen System, include traditional acupuncture’s excellent benefits. In fact, laserpunture has more beneficial components to offer! Advantages of Low-Level Laser Therapy include…
- Short therapy duration (10-30 seconds/per point)
- Points that are difficult or painful to treat with needles (mouth/mucosa, wounds, joints, oral) can be included.
- Painless and non-invasive therapy (particularly suited to treating sensitive patients, patients with needle aversion, children, etc.).
- Can be used in cases for which classical acupuncture does not recommend the use of needles (asthenia)
- Aseptic- no risk of infections & no side effects
- Can be used to complement traditional acupuncture treatment
Laserpuncture VS. Needle Acupuncture
Comparing different methods that give the same result will always raise the question of which is better. Both methods influence live tissue and the energetic system of meridians – the needle by the stimulus, which triggers a reaction in the body, and the Laser by light energy and photons. Both acupuncture methods trigger responses within the body’s nervous system. Although both ways reach the same parts of the body’s system, they have a slightly different effects on body functions because of their remarkable influence on live tissue (harmonizes, neutralizes, tonifies, and reduces). Needle acupuncture and Laserpuncture can also complement each other. Switching between the two methods can be good for the body. They are both able to be a helpful combination depending on the situation. Each technique can be used by itself but will never replace the different processes completely. A laserpuncture session might be a little shorter in duration than a traditional acupuncture session due to a simplified method of operation. At the end of the day, both methods are safe and will help reach your maximum comfort in the long run.

What Is Medical Micro-needling – Collagen Induction Therapy?
Medical Micro-needling (Collagen Induction Therapy) with SkinPen Precision device is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate the skin. Our SkinPen creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
At Compassion Acupuncture we offer various Fusion Meso Therapy serums that contain only pure active ingredients that offer a combination of peptides and growth factors, as well as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to help stimulate collagen and elastin production for youthful-looking skin.
Benefits of SkinPen Medical Micro-needling include:
- Improvement of fine lines and deeper wrinkles
- Reduction of acne scars
- Softening stretch marks
- Evens skin tone
- Lightens hyperpigmentation and sunspots
- Reduces appearance of pores
- Firms and smooths skin texture
- Heals scars
- Reduces broken capillaries and spider veins
- Brings back the glow for fresher, younger-looking skin
- Stimulates production of collagen and elastin
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
- Before Treatment
Your provider will gently cleanse your skin. Topical anesthesia may be administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment.
- During Treatment
Skin Pen creates millions of controlled microchannels in the skin. This jump starts the production of collagen and elastin and encourages the release of growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells. The result is a cascade of healing processes that can continue for months following your treatment.
The SkinPen treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Depending on whether an anesthetic is used prior to treatment, your entire treatment session may last up to one hour- still plenty of time to schedule your treatment before work or during your lunch hour. Be sure to speak with your provider before you come to get an accurate estimate, so you know how to plan your visit.
- After Treatment
Your skin may initially appear slightly pink to red, similar to a mild sunburn. This is normal and should subside within 24 to 72 hours.
Some people see rejuvenated skin after just one treatment, and results may continue to improve for three to six months following your last treatment.
SkinPen Medical Micro-needling or Collagen Induction Therapy harnesses your skin’s natural powers of regeneration. Yes, you read that right!
