Acupuncture increases semen quality and male fertility
A randomised controlled treatment that evaluated the effect of acupuncture and moxibustion treatment on the semen quality in 19 men with semen abnormalities, such as low concentration, abnormal morphology and/or progressive reduced motility without apparent cause.
Semen analyses were performed before and after the treatment course. The patients given acupuncture had a significant increase in the percentage of normally-formed sperm compared to the sham group.
