Our Areas of Interest and Expertise…

Women’s Health

Acupuncture may aid in the treatment of many women’s health conditions, including cycle regulationpremenstrual symptoms and more (1).

Fertility

Acupuncture may help to optimise blood flow to the uterus and ovaries (2), and improve the receptivity of the uterine lining (3), which is important for a healthy conception and pregnancy.  

IVF Support

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been shown to increase pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF treatment(4,5), by optimising blood flow(2), & improving the receptivity of the uterine lining(3).

 

Pregnancy

Research has shown acupuncture to be effective in the relief of pain of the back or pelvis during pregnancy, and may be helpful for nausea, headaches and more (6).

Post-Partum Support

For thousands of years, Chinese Medicine has emphasised the importance of post-partum care in new mothers..

 

 

Pain & General Wellbeing

Acupuncture has a long track record in being effective for many types of pain and discomfort. 

Chronic & Autoimmune Conditions

If you’ve been diagnosed by a complex or autoimmune condition, there are many ways we may be able to support you.
