One of the most important aspects is that I was once sitting where you are today. I am fully versed with the pain and intense emotions that go along with trying to conceive. A large amount of empathy is given to my patients which I feel is essential in the healing process.
Like all acupuncturists, I will conduct a detailed case history. However, with Fertility Acupuncture I will also delve into the immune system in great detail along with any previous illnesses one may have experienced, as well as vaginal microbiome history. I have good relationships with various specialists such as andrologists, immunologists and endocrinologists and will point you in the right direction if this is appropriate.
Increasingly, due to various environmental factors, I am seeing more and more men requiring treatment and I have post graduate experience in male factor fertility.
I will also give you an honest opinion of how long I feel treatment will be required. I do however ask that you give me time to tackle the underlying issues that I see on a daily basis. In order to have the best results, I will need to see you regularly for a period of months. I will often have people approach me a week before starting fertility treatment. While I am happy to help and the acupuncture will provide relief from the stress that a patient is under, more time is required to clear the underlying issues that I see so often in clinic.
I am delighted to have a chat with anyone who needs more information or just so we get to know one another. I feel it is so important to build a close relationship to my patients so they trust in the support and advice that I give them.
