For female patients, the Chinese medicine approach will take a detailed look at the menstrual cycle in order to identify where improvements can be made. In conjunction with blood tests, scan results or Western diagnosis this leads us to a treatment plan. In practical terms we will see a number of recognised conditions in the clinic, including:
Repeated IVF failure
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
We will take a 360 degree look at medical history, lifestyle and dietary factors and comprise a holistic treatment plan to optimise your fertility. We adopt an an integrated approach combining TCM acupuncture with western medicine

Our IVF Support programme:
IVF success can depend on a number of factors, each person is unique. Ideally it is best to have acupuncture 2- 3 months prior to beginning your IVF cycle. This can benefit egg health, reduce stress and prepare the body for pregnancy. However we provide support for people at all stages of the IVF cycle.

“I came to see Colette following a miscarriage. It was a stressful time and she put me completely at ease. She was very sympathetic and caring, yet professional and I knew I was in safe hands. The course of acupuncture (and advice on diet and nutritional supplements) Colette gave me enabled me to get pregnant within a couple of months and she supported me throughout early pregnancy. “TE, Solicitor
“I would just like to let you know I am extremely happy with the service provided by Colette Assor, your acupuncturist – she is so kind and professional and her treatments definitely work! I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility and got naturally pregnant in just under three months of her treatments. I could not be happier! Not only that, she treated me holistically, taking into account my lifestyle, diet, anxiety issues, etc as well as my physiological problem. I think Colette is an excellent acupuncturist and would highly recommend her to other clients. “Tara Cujovic Tramsak – Fertility patient.
“…there were times not so long ago when I didn’t believe that we would be blessed with a child at all. Thank you for helping us to make her happen.” (Mrs P)
