Acupuncture for Female Fertility

The benefits of acupuncture in improving fertility are reflected in improved mental and physical health. Often people respond just as positively in terms of their mental state as in their physical condition. In other words, not only are fertility and validity improved by acupuncture, but also a person’s sense of calm, their ability to cope with stress, and stabilization of mood, are greatly enhanced. This helps them to cope with the possible negative results of fertility treatment.

–Sheryl de Lacey, “A preliminary exploration of women’s perceptions of the use of acupuncture as an adjunct to IVF”

Dr. Jenny Li (CN)* has an advanced degree (PhD) of Acupuncture from China, and has practiced for 25 years in both China and New Zealand in the area of Chinese Medical Gynaecology and its applications for infertility, natural fertility and women’s health. Dr. Jenny (CN)* and the Natural Harmony fertility team offer individualised treatment plans using Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for couples who are preparing to conceive and women who have fertility issues.

–Dr. Jenny Li (CN)*, How Acupuncture Works with IVF

The nature of IVF makes it tend to focus intensively on the couple’s physical body, so in some cases it feels that a balance of physical, emotional and mental support is lacking. In these instances complementary healthcare may provide the emotional and mental support required. Acupuncture, as a safe and reliable solution adjunct to IVF with the two arms of psychological and biological benefits, fills this space.

What one of our patients had to say


Baby Pine was born on 20/05/2018, weighing 6 Pounds:-)

What her mum Monita said on 08/02/2018:

“I’m a 45yr old female who suffers from very heavy periods and dangerously low iron levels. My partner and I tried for years to have a baby naturally, only to be told by our GP as well as many online sources that it was highly unlikely at my age.

About 2 years ago we were surprised to be told I was pregnant. Sadly it wasn’t mean to be as our baby had no heartbeat at 6weeks and I eventually miscarried by week 7. We came across the Harmony Clinic website about a year ago and read all the reviews on the positive experiences many families had through alternative Chinese medicine. Feeling a bit unsure, we thought “what do we have to lose?” At my first meeting with Jenny, I found her to be very knowledgeable about female & male fertility, as she took the time to explain a lot of things to me as well as walk me through ways to improve one’s health and chances of conceiving a baby naturally.

“We started the acupuncture treatments on a weekly basis, and every time we attended the appointments – Jenny was always so kind and caring, but at the same time very informative and gave us a lot of sensible and great advice for a healthier lifestyle for both myself and my partner. We took on board all of Jenny’s advice and even attended a fertility seminar, which she had kindly invited us to.

“We can honestly say, that Jenny definitely knows what she’s talking about, and she’s pretty much been with us throughout our journey because everything is harder at my age. We now see Jenny once a month to ensure I remain healthy throughout the pregnancy.

We’ve been through so much, but Jenny has been there every step of the way for us. She’s more than just our acupuncturist – Jenny is like family to us.

For anyone who believes it’s not possible to have a baby naturally later in life – we encourage you to not give up hope. Because we didn’t give up.

“Thank you Jenny for everything!”

-Monita S, Manurewa
