AACMA Practitioner seminar on acupuncture treatment for infertility & IVF
Ping was recently invited to run a seminar on behalf of the Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) in Western Australia. AACMA is the peak national body representing the acupuncture and Chinese medicine profession in Australia.
Ping accepted the invitation and in late July presented a seminar on Acupuncture treatment for Infertility and IVF (in-vitro fertilisation).
The treatment principle of Chinese medicine is to restore and balance a woman’s body to be able to conceive naturally. Acupuncture therapy can be tried as a less-invasive alternative to IVF or in conjunction with IVF. Amongst its many effects, acupuncture has been shown to increase blood circulation to the ovaries and uterus and hence increase the capacity for conception. Numerous clinical trials have demonstrated acupuncture ability to improve successful IVF rates.
During the seminar, Ping presented to Chinese medicine practitioners her many years experience of successful pregnancy treatment.
1. Firstly, Ping talked about how she has seen the occurrence of infertility increase. She has seen more infertility cases, leading her to believe that more people are needing help in this area, and therefore feels it is beneficial to share her experience with other practitioners.
2. Ping is sure Acupuncture is a great help for fertility problems as well as increasing the success of IVF.
3. Ping explained the common causes of infertility by theory of Chinese Medicine and also analysed how to determine the disorder of organs and imbalance between Yin and Yang by combining Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine diagnostic methods.
4. Ping also introduced successful treatment strategies for the common causes of infertility.
5. Finally, Ping helped some of the attending practitioners with their current infertility cases.
In the past 25 years, Ping has not only treated patients in her clinic, but has also shared her knowledge providing education to help the new generation of TCM students and practitioners.
Ping would like to thank everyone who attended the seminar as well as her patients and colleagues. It is a pleasure to share this information and contribute to the profession in this way.
