The Chinese Medicine Element of Water
Each of the Five Elements in Chinese Medicine has a corresponding organ system. Each of the Elements and their organs are connected very closely with all four of the other Elements. Together, they make up the ecosystem of the body, mind and spirit. These Five Elements are what Zen5’s Chinese Medicine practitioners use to make a diagnosis of our clients. We then use the information to make a treatment plan that helps get the client’s body, mind and spirit back to optimum balance and health. By creating internal balance using the Five Elements, we help to establish harmony in body, mind and spirit.
The Kidneys in Chinese Medicine are the source of life and energy for the whole body. They hold our Essence (Jing) – an energy source that spans our lifetime. When we are born, we inherit the Kidney Essence of our mother, and that of our father. Our parents’ essence joins to make a new person – us. So, the Kidneys in Chinese Medicine are the organ in the body that is mostly connected with DNA and reproductive function. Because the Kidneys are part of the Water element, they are also responsible for healthy fluid metabolism. Disease is sometimes caused when people have either too much or too little fluid, or the fluid they have is not being processed properly. Healthy Kidney Yin and Yang energy means we have flourishing reproductive systems and will live a long, healthy life.
Imbalances in Kidney energy are reflected in such problems as:
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Lower back and knee pain
Infertility in women and men
Hormonal disorders (such as Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism)
Sudden weight gain

It is especially effective for infertile female above 35 years old and men with low sperm mobility. Pregnancy acupuncture will increase the chance of conceiving by up to 40%.
Fertility acupuncture it is particularly helpful for people that have a functional rather than structural reason for infertility and they have the potential effect of improving ovarian and follicular function. Patients are commonly treated with fertility acupuncture for three to four months before an insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF), or donor-egg transfer. This period of treatment is known to have a therapeutic effect on the person being treated.

IVF ACUPUNCTURE MELBOURNE
IVF Acupuncture is an ideal assistant treatment for IVF insemination; we encourage women to receive IVF acupuncture treatments before and after embryo transfer, especially few hours before you receiving the IVF treatment.
It is also advisable for pregnant women to receive a pregnancy acupuncture treatment to prevent miscarriage. Treatment of patients undertaking fertility acupuncture may often last through week twelve to help prevent miscarriage, since most miscarriages occur within the first three months of pregnancy.
