Acupuncture is the go to treatment for those wishing to optimise natural conception or support IVF.
Perhaps you know that you will soon be trying to conceive and wish to do all you can to prepare for a healthy pregnancy; or perhaps you hope to conceive straight away, either naturally or through IVF. Some women come to me following miscarriage.
Sally has completed post graduate training in fertility acupuncture and knows how to use this ancient therapy to very best effect, often in combination with nutrition and lifestyle advice and/or alongside conventional medical treatment. A growing body of scientific research now supports the efficacy of acupuncture, in particular as a complementary therapy for those going through IVF or other assisted fertility treatments.
Our menstrual cycles and periods are the only outward sign we have of our fertility and they reveal useful information which can be used in your acupuncture diagnosis. Treatment is aimed at alleviating any menstrual symptoms and giving you tools to get to know your body.
Support During IVF
IVF is a time when many couples want to spend time optimising their health. It is important to support your treatments with techniques that will help you manage stress and cultivate health. Treatment is aimed to work alongside fertility medication, reducing its side effects and optimising your chances. As well as IVF I support ICSI, IUI, egg donation and all ART treatments.
Men can also benefit from using acupuncture prior to and during IVF, particularly if there is male factor infertility or they have high stress levels. Many men enjoy being involved in the process and find acupuncture helps them relax.
Different People Different Treatment
My aim is always to cultivate health and create a fertile environment for a baby to be conceived and for you to thrive physically and emotionally. Your treatment plan will be something we work out together to reflect your individual needs and your unique set of circumstances.
