What is Acupuncture?

Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body's vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body's energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi. By inserting and manipulating hair-thin needles at specific points, I am able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body's ability to heal itself.

Acupuncture returns the body to its
natural state of balance and harmony.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes. Acupuncture is used by millions every year. Acupuncturists are required to undergo extensive education, including detailed study of human anatomy and training in Clean Needle Technique. I am a fully licensed and an insured member of The British Acupuncture Council, the main regulatory body for acupuncture in the UK. So you can be sure of the utmost standards of care and professional conduct. As required by law, I use pre-sterilized, disposable, single-use needles to ensure your complete safety.

How can Acupuncture help with fertility?                                                                                                   Acupuncture aims to re-balance your energy flow and prime your body for fertility. The British Acupuncture Council believes acupuncture may boost female fertility by doing four key things:

  • Regulating hormone function    
  • Increase blood flow to the ovaries and uterus and helping to relax muscles which can improve the chance of an embryo implanting
  • Tackling the cause of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) - a common cause of infertility.
  • Generally helping to relieve stress and make you feel more relaxed
