"Acupuncture is a holistic treatment, meaning it considers both the mental and physical profile of a patient. The needles are placed on specific pressure points to stimulate the release of hormones, which can aid in regulating menstruation and internal blood flow. Stress is also a big factor to think about when looking to get pregnant.
