In the Chinese medical profession we have been aware for many centuries that acupuncture boosts the chances of conception and successful reproduction.Finally western medical research has proved the link between acupuncture and improved success rates for assisted conception techniques,particularly IVF and I believe my skills may be of use to achieve greater success with patients' treatment programmes.
It is sensible to try and achieve your optimum state of health,both physically and emotionally,before pregnancy. A course of acupuncture combined with advice on fertility awareness,diet and lifestyle can help both men and women to ensure they have the best start; the aim being, for all concerned to achieve pregnancy sooner rather than later.
I work with individuals and couples using acupuncture to increase fertility.My experience allows me to identify when western medical intervention is appropriate.
Assisted Reproduction Techniques (IUI, IVF ,ICSI, Egg donation)
Should you find there are problem and conception does not happen as planned,or you have already decided to pursue IVF or a similar treatment, acupuncture, diet and life advice provide a good basis for any of the Assisted Reproduction Techniques.
With both an understanding of the western medical approach to IVF and the other techniques available,combined with the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I am able to tailor each treatment to suit the individual,supporting you through every stage of your ART.
Due to its holistic approach, acupuncture treatment provides a good support to those undergoing ART,helping you cope with the possible side effects of drugs and the emotional roller-coaster that often accomanies the treatments.Pregnant Congratulations!
