I have many years' experience using acupuncture to support couples with infertility problems. My MSc focused on supporting male and female infertility with herbal medicine, which I highly recommend if infertility has led to disappointing results from IVF. Over the years many clients have come to my practices for acupuncture for infertility from all over north and east London.
A bit about the therapies
You'll find a page with more information about each kind of treatment, but here's a brief intro ..........
Approach to diagnosis and treatment: we are used to thinking in terms of getting rid of our troublesome symptoms. However, in traditional Chinese medicine we try not only to get rid of the symptoms, but to make sure they don't come back. This unique holistic approach means we look for the underlying imbalances that are causing your symptoms, and we are interested in every aspect of your health. The language of Chinese medicine is very different to what we are used to, but it makes sense in practice
Acupuncture: Fine sterile needles are gently placed in various places on the body (eg hands, feet, wrists, ankles, abdomen, back). You may feel a slight twinge when the needle is inserted, then rest while the needles do their work. Most people say they feel very relaxed "It feels a lot like a large martini and half a valium". Grace Dent, Guardian Weekend
Cupping: (glass vacuum cups) or moxibustion (burning moxa to create heat on or near the body) may be used as part of a treatment
Shiatsu /acupressure massage: You keep all your clothes on for a full body treatment that releases tight muscles and is deeply relaxing
Herbal medicine: a personalised powder mixture made especially for you, taken as a hot drink
