We follow a holistic approach to fertility treatment. During your consultation your acupuncturist will take a detailed case history, making note of western diagnoses and medication as well as looking at your health patterns from a Chinese medical perspective.
Our therapists have extensive knowledge of western and Chinese approaches to fertility. We take care to explain to you how we are working, and any changes to look out for.
We consider good nutrition to be an important aspect of fertility treatment, and will advise you about Chinese dietary therapy, or refer you to a western nutritionist if you need more support.
Research supports the use of that acupuncture alongside IVF. A study carried out at the Homerton hospital found that those patients who had acupuncture had double the success rate of IVF.
