Many couples who are trying to conceive a child may have tried many conventional treatments but are still unable to conceive. While the failure to get pregnant can be attributed to many reasons, there is no harm when couples opt to try a number of alternative or traditional methods. One of these alternative or traditional methods is acupressure treatment. However, before undergoing acupressure treatment, the couple must first undergo thorough medical examination to determine that the cause of their failure to conceive is not rooted in any physiological causes. Acupressure can only be beneficial to couples if there are no physiological hindrances to getting pregnant. Acupressure is an ancient art of healing practiced by the Chinese which recognizes that the body has pressure points which can be stimulated to target specific organs and cure certain disease conditions. Acupressure can also promote relaxation and improve blood circulation in the body. When undergoing acupressure as a procedure to help couples conceive, the pressure points which are stimulated are found on the feet and hands.

Acupuncture may also be a complementary treatment that has shown positive results in treating infertility problems in both men and women.

These obstructed movements cause swelling up of energy in some parts of reproductive organs while others get deprived from such energy conjures. Acupuncture works by placing needles on these blocked sites and stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals to the reproductive organs. This releases the required amount of energy to cure infertility in both men and women.
