About Louise Collyer
A qualified and highly experienced acupuncturist and Chinese herbal medicine practitioner, I offer treatment tailored specifically for you. I combine acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to optimise women’s gynaecological and reproductive health and chances for conception and pregnancy.
I studied at the Northern College of Acupuncture for three years for a Postgraduate Diploma in Acupuncture, followed by two years in Dublin at the Acupuncture Foundation for a diploma in Chinese herbal medicine. Since graduation, I have gained extensive experience working with gynaecology, fertility and pregnancy and in 2014, along with Laura Bicker, I set up the Jesmond Natural Health and Fertility clinic in Newcastle.
At postgraduate level I have studied and gained two diplomas with Dr Trevor Wing of The Women’s Natural Health Practice on Harley Street and with Naava Carmen of the Fertility Support Company based in North-West London.
I am registered with the British Acupuncture Council and the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
My interest in Eastern medicines arose whilst living in Japan for two years and exploring the Japanese approach to health. Having seen the benefits of a culture using acupuncture, herbs and shiatsu for health preservation, it led to me pursuing a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine. After overcoming fertility issues of my own and experiencing first hand the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I am now dedicated to supporting couples on their own journey to a family.
