Complimentary Treatments

Learning a method of relaxation, like yoga or t’ai chi is a good strategy to help reduce stress levels, and in turn this may help improve fertility.

Massage with or without aromatherapy oils is said to be beneficial, perhaps because they are relaxing and counter stress. Cranial osteopaths will look for imbalances in the pelvis which could be affecting fertility and will correct these, although there is no scientific evidence that this is effective.

Could any other complementary treatments help me?

Acupuncture may improve blood flow to the uterus in some women and this may help with achieving pregnancy. Scientific trials are just beginning to look at this to see how helpful it may be. Homeopathy has not shown any obvious successes in improving fertility in scientific studies.
