There is growing evidence that using appropriate acupuncture treatment may assist with fertility treatment, boosting the chances of a successful pregnancy. We have teamed up with local, professionally qualified acupuncturists who use acupuncture techniques that have been shown in clinical trials to improve treatment outcomes.
Acupuncture is used in many medical settings for example, GP surgeries, pain clinics and hospices. It can be used to treat a number of health conditions; most common are those affecting bones and muscles, headaches and migraines.
However, its use is being more widely investigated for a number of health issues. Acupuncture comes from ancient Chinese medicine. Thin needles are placed in specific areas of the body which can have therapeutic and preventative effects. The treatment should not be painful and many people find acupuncture makes them feel calm and relaxed; some patients have even fallen asleep! Sessions usually last between 45 and 60 minutes.
All the acupuncturists we work with have post graduate training and are experienced in fertility acupuncture. All are members of the British Acupuncture Council and follow strict codes of practice, conduct and hygiene.
