Acupuncture: can it help you get

pregnant?

• Researches have been conducted extensively in the past couple of years to

evaluate the possible benefits acupuncture might have for people who are

trying to conceive. An Australian trial published in 2016 suggests that

acupuncture can reduce by the 50% the time taken for infertile women to

conceive. 56 women took part in the 12-month long trial and they were

randomized in two groups – one receiving lifestyle modifications and the

other adding acupuncture into the mix. Overall, the second group show

positive influences in the ability to get pregnant. The amazing result: those

who did conceive, managed to make it happen in half the time the lifestyle

modifications only participants did.

• In another study presented the ESHRE (European Society of Human

Reproduction and Embryology) in 2016 , scientists found that acupuncture

is extremely beneficial for women undergoing IVF therapy. They year-long

study showed that the participants who received acupuncture in

conjunction with their regular IVF treatment managed to get pregnant at an

almost 50% rate – which is double than for those who received IVF alone!

High heels and back pain: can

acupuncture ease it?

 An integrated study published in 2017 - Study of acupuncture for low back

pain in recent 20 years: a bibliometric analysis via CiteSpace, has looked

back on researches aiming to demonstrate the benefits of using

acupuncture to treat lower back pain caused by high heels, and as well other

factors such as pregnancy. The evidence showed that in the U.S., the

therapy has been commonly used to treat back pain. To further cement this,

the potential it holds has been turning heads in the science world as well

with the U.S., England, and Canada having conducted and encouraged the

most studies around the benefits and deeming acupuncture as

complimentary medicine with real benefits.

 According to the Spine Health Institute , almost half of the women aged

between 18 and 24 wear high heels on the daily basis, with the number

decreasing with age but still reaching a stunning 34% for women over 50

years old. This can turn into a huge problem in the next couple of years if

appropriate measures are not taken. Not to mention the strain it will put on

health system with more and more patients seeking treatment. It is time to

recognize acupuncture as a cost effective and efficient player in the

treatment of back pain.

how to get better faster and more cost effective

How to get better faster and more

cost-effective after a stroke

• Studies tell us that accessing physiotherapy post-stroke contributes

to improved and positive outcomes for patients. Evidence points

strongly towards intensive, highly repetitive, task-oriented and task-

specific training. According to a study observing a healthcare trust

from the UK that has implemented an integrated service model,

physiotherapy has made great strides with stroke patients.

• By having a professional not only support and guide you on the

medical side, but also acting as a life coach, the program aims to

empower the patient. Thus increasing the chances of a faster

healing, optimizing and restoring the body’s functions and as well

help re-integrate them in society. Incredible numbers show a lot of

promise. Hospitalization time decreased by six days, equating in

£833,700 saved. Patients also benefitted from £75,500 cut from

their medical bills, with 13% of them returning home.

Good news for mums: postpartum

anxiety relieved by massage therapy

• A recent study published in 2017 aims to shed light on the benefits of

massage therapy in women in postpartum anxiety and bring new hope.

Around 10-15% of all new mothers experience this in the aftermath of giving

birth. Out of these, as many as 70% can carry on feeling the so-called ‘baby

blues’ for a year or longer . These numbers may not mean much to you, but

just think that at this very moment thousands of women are battling

symptoms similar to minor to major depression.

• The study conducted in Iran positively reported that a slow-stroke back

massage for as little as a 20 minute session can significantly decrease

postpartum anxiety symptoms. The technique involved participants

undergoing a seated massage therapy in a quiet room. The therapist started

by applying light pressure at the shoulder level, progressing to the skull’s

base and down the spine and collarbone.

• Straight after the session ended, the subjects were given a survey to

complete and another one the very next morning. The findings were

impressive and showed that something as simple, inexpensive and

noninvasive as a back massage can make a world of difference in the lives of

these women and increase their overall quality of life.

Can therapeutic massage help mental

well-being?

• Therapeutic massage facilitates psychosocial relaxation and reduces stress

levels, which are the main factors paving the way for mental health issues.

There have been many studies and cases brought to the public’s attention

throughout time. In a study researching the benefits of massage therapy in

adults with chronic fatigue, the results were visible almost straightaway.

The participants were surveyed right after their first massage session, and

they reported lower scores for depression, stress and anxiety than their

counterparts. Another study showed that a massage for as little as 15

minutes significantly decreased blood pressure in 52 participants

(monitored both prior to the treatment and afterwards).

• Interestingly enough, a research from 2015 examined the effects of

therapeutic massage in amateur adolescent wrestlers. The 50 pre-selected

boys underwent a DASS (Depression, Anxiety and Stress scale) test to

evaluate their general mental health level, before undergoing the 10

massage sessions that were the study’s essence. The results were incredibly

positive, reinforcing the benefits of therapeutic massage: it not only

significantly reduced levels of depression, anxiety and stress, but it

promoted overall health.
