IVF patients have begun to increasingly choose acupuncture to support their journey through an IVF cycle, including sessions on the day of the embryo transfer. The sessions take place close to the major IVF clinics. Taxis can be booked for you to minimise your stress on the day.
IVF acupuncture came about as a result of the fact that sessions before and after embryo transfer had been associated with increased pregnancies in some published studies; some researchers proposed specific mechanisms of action1. You may also wish to have sessions in the weeks before the transfer.
You can speak English, Spanish or French in the session – I am English.

The Barcelona IVF Acupuncture service is proud to always aim for equal opportunities and warmly welcomes singles and couples of all orientations.
1 The use of acupuncture for IVF cycles has now become better known among the public following some landmark studies which were later replicated by other researchers. The British Acupuncture Council has published an online factsheet about acupuncture and IVF (and Assisted Reproduction Technologies, or ART for short). For those for whom an IVF cycle has not been successful, acupuncture can help to soothe stress and support the body to recover its energy.
