Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and balancing the endocrine system. Acupuncture can provide better blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, creating a higher chance for an egg to be nourished. Chinese medicine treatment on infertility includes getting pregnant , staying pregnant, keeping good baby position and having a healthy baby without any side effects.

Suggested mechanisms include upregulation of brain-derived neurtrophic factor, basic fibroblast growth factor and neurpeptide Y. Neurgenic properties of acupuncture are currently under extensive investigation, especially regarding its therapeutic potential for cranial nerve palsies, such as those of the facial nerve.
Clinic of Sinosoins (acupuncture montreal) was founded in 2004 by Hong Qian, who moved to Montreal from Chengdu, China. Before Hong Qian moved to Montreal, She served the First People`s hospital of Chengdu as a doctor, who was an expert in Traditional Chinese Medicine. After she moved to Montreal, she found that people need Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as they need the modern western medicine because the two medicines are complementary. Furthermore, Quebec is one of provinces establishing laws that would allow the practice of acupuncture.
