2013abc st 36 and GB 34Whatever stage you are at in planning your family, whether you just want to plan ahead or have problems you need to overcome, I am  here to provide you with support, advice, natural and effective treatments.

Many recent studies have shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment for infertility, particularly when used as part of a coordinated approach with western medicine. The treatment has been shown to be effective in:

  • Regulating the menstrual cycle
  • Reducing stress by decreasing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. High stress levels are associated with reduced chances of conceiving
  • Lowers FSH
  • Improving blood circulation to the pelvic organs, including the ovaries and uterus, allowing the reproductive organs to work to their full potential
  • Increasing blood circulation to the uterus ensures optimal endometrial thickness
  • Helping to trigger ovulation in some women with ovulatory dysfunction
  • Helping women with PCOS, endemetriosis, dysmenorrhea, pelvic inflammation
  • Reduces miscarriages
  • Enhances immune system
  • Improving sperm count, motility and structural abnormalities
