AcupunctureWhat exactly is acupuncture, and how is it used?
I use acupuncture – the insertion of fine needles – to rebalance your hormones, stimulate ovulation, support the luteal phase and prepare your body for conception; whether natural or assisted.
Acupuncture can help to reduce your stress levels, modulate your immune system and control your pain by stimulating the release of beta-endorphins. It is also thought to decrease the chance of miscarriage by increasing blood flow to your uterus, and regulating your hormones.
The first session consists of a thorough consultation in which we go through all of your gynaecological and fertility history. Acupuncture needles will be inserted at chosen points to complement and work with your cycle.
Most people are nervous about their first session of acupuncture but it is a surprisingly relaxing treatment and many people even fall asleep.
