Benefits of Acupuncture for Fertility – Meet Ray Ford!
I’ve never really understood what acupuncture was all about or the benefits of Acupuncture for Fertility. I came across Ray Ford and Fiona at the at the AMICA Organic Skin Care stand at the organic food markets. They agreed to help explain how acupuncture can help women’s health and any fertility concerns. So here are a few questions I asked them:
What is Acupuncture?
Its the placement of very small, fine sterile, philiform needles placed into the body very gently to initiate a response according to the imbalance diagnosed by the practitioner, or the signs and symptoms of patient.
How does Acupuncture work?
What is it about the needles that can impact or improve the functioning of our bodies and health?
Acupuncture is based on the traditional Chinese teaching that energy, or qi (pronounced “chee”), flows through our body along meridian channels. We become ill when that energy flow is disrupted or blocked. There is medical evidence that the insertion of needles into designated acupuncture points in our bodies can speed up the conduction of electromagnetic signals within the body. As a result, some of these responses create a cascade of brain chemicals to be released and stimulated and may increase the flow of endorphins and other pain-relieving chemicals. It can also stimulate immune system cells which aid in healing the body.
Acupuncture for Fertility
Some consider Ray to be a fertility specialist in Sydney because he believes acupuncture for Fertility really works well for some women. He assists with many female specific conditions including menstrual problems, pregnancy related issues, endometriosis, anaemia, post-partum depression and fertility. He is referred patients from IVF Australia to assist with conception and over the years has helped many women who have been diagnosed as infertile to conceive naturally.
If a woman came to you and expressed they had heavy period pains, how would Ray’s practice go about to treat her?
We would use appropriate acupuncture points which regulate menstrual bleeding and most likely add Chinese herbal medicine. Acupuncture for Fertility really can work well.
So you’ve talked about Facial acupuncture? What is this? What do you do? How does this work? The benefits?
Facial acupuncture is the placement of fine needles into the face to bring about relaxation of the muscles, reduction of lines, wrinkles and blemishes. We start with the needles then end with a facial massage. This is only done at Ray’s private practice (not the community ones). We have seen amazing results in both men and women of all ages. Usually a course of 6 treatments is recommended for best results.
What uniqueness does your acupuncture bring over those of others?
Price: Treatments at Experienced Community Acupuncture are just $25 and the centres have several acupuncturists who are all highly qualified, skilled and experienced professionals.
Booking Procedure: You don’t need to book appointments…you just rock up and be treated at a time that suits you.
Experience: Ray is a sought after acupuncturist – he has completed hundreds of thousands of treatments over the years and has treated many celebrities such as Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Bianca Dye and Larry Wachowski, as well as some olympic athletes. These people all found Ray because he of his knowledge of Chinese Medicine. It’s the same knowledge that has made his community centres a success. There are now some amateur community acupuncture groups setting up centres around Sydney, but experience is what they don’t offer. It is a vital component of Chinese Medicine.
