Some of you may have heard about or experienced first-hand the power of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in resolving women’s reproductive concerns, including boosting fertility, inducing labor, turning breech babies, and regulating hormones. However, another powerful adjunct therapy that directly addresses the mind-body component of these concerns about which you may not be aware is hypnosis.
I am pleased to announce that Johanna Nagel-Kim, certified HypnoFertility Educator and HypnoFertility Therapist, will be offering a 5 week course on Hypnofertility at Stillpoint Acupuncture beginning Tuesday, September 23 at 7:00 PM. Johanna is a fertility and childbirth educator, with a focus on teaching using deep relaxation hypnosis to put fear aside, so that couples can conceive, birth, and parent with calm confidence.
What is HypnoFertility?
Hypnosis is becoming one of the most sought after therapies for couples experiencing fertility issues. Hypnotherapy has been found effective compared to other types of therapies in general settings.
- Psychoanalysis: 38% of clients reported recovery from their conditions after 600 sessions.
- Behavioral Therapy: 72% of clients reported recovery from their conditions after 22 sessions.
- Hypnotherapy: 93% of clients reported success after just 6 sessions!
When going through a difficult experience such as trying unsuccessfully to conceive, negative thoughts, doubt, and fear can run rampant in your mind. Harnessing your energy in a positive way with HypnoFertility can change your inner soundtrack from bleak and fearful thoughts to positive affirming feelings. This change in energy has the ability to positively impact your body chemistry, making you more likely to conceive both naturally and through assisted reproductive technologies.
HypnoFertility is safe and drug free. It is a perfect accompaniment to those undergoing medical fertility treatments. Despite the great strides in medical advances related to treating infertility, statistics shows that the success rate of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and other treatments is approximately 20%. HypnoFertility has the ability to significantly boost the success rate of IVF, as is illustrated by the following study.
A 2004 Israeli study on IVF with hypnotherapy was conducted by Professor Eliahu Levitas, and was subsequently published in the July 2004 issue of the European Society of Human Reproduction. The research found that hypnosis can double the success rate of IVF. The study, which tracked 185 women, found that the success rate of IVF in the test group rose from 14% to 28%, when the women underwent hypnosis during IVF implantation.
Additional studies have been conducted which show the correlation of mind/body activities improving the likelihood of conceiving naturally. In 1999, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association found that 42% of 132 infertile women who completed a mind/body program became pregnant within six months after the program finished. A study in 2000, which was published in Fertility and Sterility, found that 55% of infertile women who participated in a mind/body program conceived, as compared to 20% of the infertile women in the control group who did not participate in the program.

Did you know that stress can reduce your chances of conception?
When we experience stress, our bodies produce the stress hormone, Cortisol, which can inhibit the implantation of a fertilized ovum, delay ovulation and reduce the number and motility of sperm. Your daily stress levels may be hurting your ability to conceive the child you desire.
HypnoFertility teaches you to release fears and stress and improves your chance of conceiving.
Research shows that using a mind-body program, like HypnoFertility, when undergoing IVF can double the success rate of conceiving!* HypnoFertility is also very successful when a couple is naturally trying to conceive without medical procedures.
According to research, 42% of women became pregnant within six months after learning mind-body techniques, such as HypnoFertility.**
