Poor Motility—Poor motility means that sperm doesn’t have a strong ability to move forward in a way that allows the sperm to swim to the egg. Chinese practitioners understand poor motility as a symptom of a deficiency in the warming and invigorating energy of the body. Acupuncture and herbs can increase blood flow to genital organs, and encourage relaxation to support improved motility. TCM treatment has proven to be very successful in treating this condition. When treating male infertility, it is important to remember that the patient will receive the most benefit from acupuncture and herbs over a period of about three months. This is because sperm is generated in the body about three months before it becomes part of a man’s ejaculate.
