Acupuncture is a system of healing that has been practised for over 2,500 years.
Acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment, where diagnosis and treatment considers helping the whole person aiming to improve their overall health and well-being and today it is widely used and accepted all over the world.
Rather than just focusing on specific signs and symptoms, as practitioners we aim to explore the underlying cause of disease.
An initial course of 5 sessions is often recommended, but frequency will vary depending on the nature of your individual condition, whether it is chronic or acute, the duration of the problem and lifestyle factors.
As your condition improves, treatment can be spaced out.
Some patients decide to have preventative treatment on a less regular basis to maintain good health.
Acupuncture can help you if you are trying to conceive on a natural cycle or can also be beneficial if you are undergoing assisted reproduction such as IVF.
Fertility focused acupuncture treatment has been found to increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, balance hormone levels by regulating the pituitary-ovarian function, help the quality of eggs released, regulate the menstrual cycle, and improve the lining of the uterus.
