The Importance of Acupuncture ‘Dose’ in Treating IVF Patientsimmediately after purchaseuntil 02/15/2022 - 23:59
Presenter: 

Acupuncture is a popular treatment for many people undergoing, or planning on undergoing, IVF or assisted reproduction. Some recent systematic reviews/meta-analysis have suggested that acupuncture may not be effective in improving pregnancy rates and live births.

This seminar will focus on the results of recent research and explore why the ‘dose’ of acupuncture is a key factor in determining the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment in improving pregnancy related outcomes.

Course Outline:

  • Understand how a systematic review is conducted
  • Be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a systematic review
  • Understand what happens during a meta-analysis and how to interpret the outcomes
  • Identify different components of an acupuncture ‘dose’ and how these contribute to fertility outcomes
  • Determine clinically relevant treatment guidelines for IVF patients based on the latest research

The Yin/Yang-Five Phase paradigm is, at its core, a description of human development from the embryonic stage to adulthood. Within this paradigm, the San Jiao (Triple Burner) emerges as the central mechanism that organizes and guides growth and development. Using this model helps us understand the trajectory of both healthy development and how distorted patterns manifest as illness in childhood. Illustrative case examples will demonstrate a practical, systematic methodology for evaluating a child and formulating an effective treatment strategy.
