Angea has been supporting modern families on their fertility journeys for over 16 years!

~Acupuncture & IVF~
Research into the benefits of acupuncture for those engaging with IVF is growing. Angea’s tried and tested IVF and acupuncture protocol has been created to optimise your success of IVF.

~Getting Ready for IVF~
Prior to starting your IVF cycle
We recommend Preconception Care to all of our fertility clients. By engaging in appropriate nutrition and lifestyle upgrades, in combination with acupuncture, you’re optimising your body, mind, spirit and fertility.

~Stimulation Cycle~
There are many side effects that have been associated with IVF including nausea, headaches and anxiety. Acupuncture may support these symptoms and benefit overall well being during this challening time.

~Egg Collection~
Following Egg Collection we recommend acupuncture to support any local tissue trauma or bleeding.

~Transfer Day~
There is research that suggests receiving acupuncture on the day of transfer – Pre & Post may improve outcomes. Acupuncture supports the relaxation response, to ensure a calm mind and body.

~One week post transfer~
Following transfer of the fertilised embryo, we recommend weekly acupuncture treatments. This recommendation is based on the growing body of research indicating that acupuncture may assist with the decreased possibility of miscarriage. In addition to supporting and stabilising the uterus, acupuncture provides therapeutic benefits such as calming the nervous system, and down regulating into your parasympathetic- rest and digest, your natural state of being.
