If you’re looking for help with a specific health issue, then why not try acupuncture?
Research shows acupuncture can safely and effectively treat a wide range of common health problems from hayfever to muscular pain and insomnia to fertility. It is one of the world’s most widely practiced medicines and a complete healthcare system in its own right.
What can acupuncture do for you?
Acupuncture aims to treat the whole person not just the specific symptoms in isolation. As such, it can be effective for a whole range of conditions. It is suitable for all ages, including children and is safe in pregnancy. It can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine.
Some people use acupuncture for a specific health problem or to relieve specific pains like osteo arthritis of the knee. Others use it as a preventative measure or to maintain good health.
Jo is a qualified Acupuncturist having gained a degree in Oriental Medicine. She regularly combines Reflexology and Acupuncture. If you’re looking for help with fertility it’s worth considering the combination.

How acupuncture can help
Trials in China have demonstrated significantly better pregnancy rates for acupuncture than medication (Yang 2005,Chen 2007,Song 2008). Research has established plausible mechanisms to explain how acupuncture may benefit fertility: Regulating fertility hormones; Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs; Reducing the effects of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
