One in six British couples have difficulties conceiving. With explained or unexplained fertility Acupuncture has an important role to play. Even if there is nothing 'wrong' medically, your energy (or as we call it in Chinese medicine your 'vital Qi' can be out of balance, not flowing smoothly or just not enough in the tank. Imbalances can be caused by stress, poor lifestyle choices, physical problems, emotional problems, lack of sleep or overdoing it. Acupuncture holistically helps to bring your mind and body back into balance and harmony.
This has a positive effect on:
Balancing and regulating your hormones
Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs
Improving cervical mucus quality
Improving the lining of the uterus
Managing gynecological conditions like PMS, ovulation problems, PCOS, endometriosis and embryo implantation issues.
Improving sperm count, motility and quality
I will take an in-depth look at your menstrual cycle and more general state of health of mind and body. Lifestyle and dietary factors are extremely important for fertility and also looked at in depth. Where appropriate, I will show you how to chart your Basal Body Temperature (BBT) as this helps enhance my understanding of your menstrual cycle from both a Western and Chinese medicine perspective.
Where appropriate, it can be very useful to see both the man and woman together for the first consultation as fertility always has to be considered jointly, no matter where the 'problem' seems to lie. I also sometimes see the male partner for follow-up sessions to help maximise sperm quality (through Acupuncture treatment in combination with dietary and lifestyle changes). Acupuncture is also excellent for lowering stress levels which can play such a big role in affecting fertility of both partners.
"I couldn’t recommend Rosalie more for acupuncture for fertility and hormonal regulation. I have loved the sessions, and have felt so relaxed and reassured by her and the treatment
She is very caring and attentive, putting one at ease whilst helping you feel more balanced and peaceful throughout the acupuncture .
She has given me clear, simple advice about nutrition, lifestyle and exercise.
This knowledge has empowered me and taught me to listen to my body and treat it with a new found respect.
Thank you Rosalie! " Maayan Gavra Squires
"I contacted Rosalie for acupuncture sessions to help me with my fertility journey. Rosalie has always been very supportive and understood exactly what I needed. She always adpated the sessions depending on my feelings and gave me useful advice. After each session, I felt completely relaxed and positive. After 4 years of second infertility, I finally conceived with the help of IVF and I know the acunpuncture sessions have contributed to the success of the IVF treatment. I will be always greatful for her time and professionalism and will definitely contact her again for any future acupuncture sessions." Léa"
