We have a special interest in the treatment of infertility and regularly see the wonderful things that can be achieved with acupuncture. Some of our patients have unexplained infertility and some have a specific medical diagnosis. Others choose to have acupuncture alongside conventional medical treatment , such as Clomid, IUI ,IVF or ICSI.
Generally all people who seek acupuncture are either seeking a natural way to boost fertility or are using it alongside conventional medicine for example, IVF.
Acupuncture has been reported to increase IVF success rates by up to 65%. The March 2008 issue of the British Medical Journal published the results of a study showing the effectiveness of using acupuncture during IVF. It compared results of women who underwent acupuncture, those who were given sham acupuncture treatments, and those who had no extra therapy. Those who received acupuncture increased their chances of conceiving by 65%!

“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.
