Coronavirus Update

We know that many of you have been without acupuncture (and other treatments) at a time when your health is clearly a prime consideration. In order to shift with the changing times and continue serving you with the best treatments and care, we are now taking bookings for virtual sessions.

The aim of virtual sessions is to give you the tools and understanding to affect your own health throught techniques including acupressure massage, lifestyle change, exercise and moxibustion. You will be shown what to do using video technology with a recommended home self-treatment time of around 10 minutes a day.

Not only are these treatments effective for continued care during a time of isolation, but they are also extremely valuable for those who are sick or have pressing matters in need of treatment with no access to normal medical care.

Please keep this in mind for your friends, family and community. We are here as a stable source for your health and well-being during this uncertain time. Now more than ever we need to prioritise our health and healing.

Usual treatment fees will apply (shorter sessions will be charged pro rata). Payments via bank transfer please. You will need a smartphone or a PC with camera and mic and appropriate (free) software. If this gives you the jitters we will be more than happy to guide you through the setup process.

‘I have known and used Martin’s medical services over many years. His calm, patient, thorough and professional approach has always been in evidence. However during this “lockdown period” I was still able to use Martin’s expertise … but virtually. Questions are asked, my history is understood and he suggested a few key acupressure points to help me relieve my condition. All done just as effectively as before, but from 200 miles away! Well done Martin. More people need to know that Martin can help from a safe distance.’

Acupuncture The Emotional Side of IVF

The emotional side of IVF is often understated. To a fertility acupuncturist it is easy to see why the process is often described as an ’emotional rollercoaster ride’. Much of the brunt of this is carried by the woman as the treatment cycle looms. It can however be challenging for both partners.

Whether you are undergoing your very first cycle or your fifth, you will have invested heavily (both financially and emotionally). Your future is linked intrinsically to the result. On top of this, the drugs you have been prescribed seem to be specifically formulated to take you out of your carefully constructed comfort zone. You feel hot at night and just a little nauseous. Good intentions go to the wall.

There’s also the prospect of injecting yourself with a needle, and making sense of the seemingly impenetrable medical jargon and numbers. Ten follicles, grade B, down-regulation, stimulation, OHSS and so on! And if all this isn’t enough, you read that stress can negatively affect the outcome of the treatment! What should you do? What can you do?

This is one area where many people have found acupuncture fertility Nottingham to be a great help. Aside from any direct effects on your fertility many of our patients undergoing IVF report that it helps them with the side effects of the medication. Mentally it puts them in a good space.

We strongly believe that a key part in the work of any fertility acupuncturist is to be a sympathetic ear. Acupuncture treatment points such as gateway to the heart, greater stream, storehouse, inner frontier and palace of weariness can help you to feel in control. It can make your IVF cycle something special. And all this is underpinned by individual treatment tailored to your specific needs.

We take it as a compliment that many couples return when they are trying for a second child.

A Co-ordinated Approach

Acupuncture Fertility Nottingham is based on a tried and tested system of traditional medicine. It has been used in China and other eastern cultures for more than two thousand years to restore, promote and maintain good health.
Hard evidence showing the effects of acupuncture is not always available. The results of emerging studies however are very promising. For this reason and through clinical experience we remain strong advocates of its use as part of a co-ordinated approach to supporting the best possible levels of reproductive health.
