Colette Assor has 20 years clinical experience and specialises in helping couples conceive naturally and providing support for assisted conception ( IVF, Chlmoid, IUI,) We also see many patients with related medical conditions such as PCOS, recurrent miscarriage and Endometriosis. Colette has achieved post graduate certification in fertility acupuncture.
Half of our patients visit our clinic for support with trying to conceive naturally. Some patients have started trying recently whilst others have been trying up to one – two years. Some patients may be trying to conceive for the first time or may be trying for a second child.
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 your medical history, lifestyle and dietary factors and comprise a treatment plan to meet your individual needs. Our treatment approach is holistic, our aim to tackle any underlying causes for example: stress and nutrition. We use an integrated approach and have links to doctors, consultants and other health professionals to offer you the best possible treatment outcome. We will always be really honest with you and let you know if we feel we can help and are reviewing your treatment plan on a regular basis.

- Regulating hormone function
- Counteracting the effects of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Increasing blood flow to the ovaries and therefore enhancing the enviroment in which follicles develop.
- Increased blood flow to the uterus which may increase thickness of the endometrial lining helping successful embryo implantation,
- Reducing stress levels and promoting deep relaxation.

“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. T.E 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)
