An acupuncturist in the UK is helping childless couples conceive — claiming his healing hands and needles have made 70 babies in just five years!
Dr. Michael Curtin is urging childless couples to ignore old wives tales and forget expensive fertility treatment — all they need is to spend a little time on his table!
Dr. Curtin, the medical director at luxury spa Champneys in the UK, claims he has treated 100 couples in the past five years — and 70 have successfully conceived.
And he insists there’s science to back up his theory: “Acupuncture puts the body back into balance and makes things work better,” he says.
“It has been shown to improve the blood supply to the ovaries and the womb. This improves the quality of follicles and the endrometrium – where the egg embeds. Blood supply is a big factor.
“Another reason is acupuncture helps by improving hormonal balance to facilitate circulation and the last reason is acupuncture is a big relaxer.” Pretty interesting, right?
“It releases endorphins, the good mood hormones and serotonin,” Dr. Curtin adds.”It’s like having a bucket of Prozac.”
What do you think HollyMoms? Would you try acupuncture to help YOU get pregnant?
