Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to health. The treatment is focused on the whole person rather than the disease, therefore, in our initial consultation, a thorough questionnaire, careful observation and palpation (if relevant to diagnosis), in addition to feeling the pulse and looking at the tongue are carried out. In Chinese medicine, each person is unique, so treatments are tailored to suit each one of us
Acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment, the needles are single use, sterile and extremely fine so there is usually little or no discomfort on insertion. Patients usually experience a feeling of relaxation during the treatment.
Chinese Medicine has a long history in gynecology with some records dating from 1500 BC. Acupuncture for fertility aims to regulate the menstrual cycle, balance the hormones, increase blood flow to the ovaries and uterus and lower stress levels, which can play a major role in boosting fertility. Acupuncture is also an excellent support for women who have endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, PCOS or fibroids.
My interest in fertility and acupuncture led me to choose this subject as part of my BSc dissertation project. Additionally, I have undergone further training in acupuncture for fertility and assisted reproductive therapy.
My work provides support to women and their partners during the fertility journey and throughout pregnancy and postpartum.
