How can I help?
Acupuncturist with over 20 years experience, offering holistic acupuncture, herbal medicine and Japanese shiatsu massage treatments to relax and harmonise your body and mind in Walthamstow and Bethnal Green. Many people come for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains like osteoarthritis of the knee. Others choose acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, and because of this it can be effective for a range of conditions. Many people turn to acupuncture again and again because they find it so beneficial and relaxing. Read more about Maggie

Fertility acupuncture east London
I am a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network. Over the years I have supported many women and couples dealing with infertility and subfertility. Wherever you are in your fertility journey, whether trying to conceive naturally or using IVF, using donor sperm or donor eggs, recovering from miscarriage, feeling ill in early pregnancy, getting ready for labour or recovering afterwards, I am very happy to talk to you and look forward to meeting you.
I have been treated by Maggie Bavington at Acupuncture for Women on several occasions over the past 4 years for different conditions and I can honestly say she is the most professional, warm and knowledgable practitioner I have ever had. My first visit to Maggie was to help induce labor as my son was overdue and I was anxious to have to have medical intervention. I had one session with Maggie and within 36 hours the labor started. The next set of treatment was for postnatal PMT . I had 6 sessions and by the end of them my periods had become much more regular and my PMT symptoms (headaches, exhaustion, sever mood swings) had subsided. I am now currently having treatment for suspected CFS after having a bout of continuous viruses for over 5 months. I have only had two sessions so far and I cannot stress how much better I feel already. The acupuncture has lifted the sense of constant exhaustion I have had and I just feel so much better in myself. Maggie makes you feel very comfortable and ease and she is a wealth of information. I really cannot recommend her enough. Lucy K
I have been supported by Maggie in my treatment for stress and emotional anxiety. Her caring and thoughtful approach is inspiring. Following every session with Maggie I feel emotionally lighter and more capable of dealing with the challenges I face, I would (and do) recommend anyone looking for stress support, fertility support, sleep or energy issues pays Maggie a visit.
