“I wanted to let you know that I gave birth to a baby girl….After trying for so long to have her she is our little miracle and I want to thank you for the acupuncture and advice which I believe helped the IVF work first time.  I was very lucky and had a good pregnancy with no sickness which I put down to your advice regarding nutrition as I think my body was well prepared for getting pregnant.”  K.S.  Barnet

Acupuncture has evolved over 2,500 years in China and the Far East.  According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our physical and emotional well-being is dependent on the balanced flow of energy, otherwise known as ‘qi’, through a series of channels or ‘meridians’ in the body.

By inserting extremely fine needles into the energy pathways of the body, blocks in the channels are released and the smooth flow of ‘qi’ is restored.  Acupuncture stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself and helps to restore its natural balance.

Acupuncture & Fertility
Acupuncture has a long  history in fertility and preparing the body for a healthy pregnancy.

Having acupuncture regularly can help reduce stress and anxiety which is often a big factor in a couple’s difficulty to conceive. Stress can affect hormonal balance and the menstrual cycle.  Acupuncture helps to improve general well-being, creating a less stressful environment for fertility and pregnancy.

Treatment of fertility also includes Chinese dietary advice which includes specific foods to enhance your overall health based on your Chinese Medicine diagnosis.

Acupuncture & IVF
When undergoing IVF, acupuncture can help manage stress and reduce its effects on the body and help manage any side effects from medication.

Acupuncture and Postnatal Recovery
The early weeks and months following the birth can be very demanding both emotionally and physically. Acupuncture can be very beneficial to relieve back ache, exhaustion, as well as to help you to relax and rebuild your energy levels.
