“Martin has been very helpful in addressing a few hurdles on our fertility journey. We first sought treatment to address sperm motility issues which was something we were told can never be improved but acupuncture sessions actually improved it from 25% to 75% within a very short span of time.
Acupuncture sessions were conducted in a very professional manner and Martin makes sure he understands the client’s needs and comfort levels before beginning treatment. There is no need to fear needles because you are in very safe hands with Martin!”
“Acupuncture during and after pregnancy – including dietary and well being advice. The treatment and support gave me confidence during pregnancy and also helped me ‘get back on my feet’ after giving birth. Martin is very empathetic and positive. I really believe I had such a great pregnancy as a result of the treatment. I shall be returning for further courses when i wish to become pregnant again”.
Confidence during pregnancy
Acupuncture during and after pregnancy - including dietary and well being advice. The treatment and support gave me confidence during pregnancy and also helped me 'get back on my feet' after giving birth. Martin is very empathetic and positive. I really believe I had such a great pregnancy as a result of the treatment. I shall be returning for further courses when i wish to become pregnant again.
Improved Sperm Motility
I saw a drastic improvement in the sperm motility after being treated by Martin, despite the doctors saying there was nothing to do about motility issues. Acupuncture has been very helpful in relieving stress as well as being a support to our IUI cycles.
Mr KV Nottingham
Thankyou for helping my mummy
Thankyou for helping my mummy in her early pregnancy. I arrived safe and sound after an uncomplicated labour and am doing very well. I think the acupuncture helped!
Martin was a great source of help during our struggle with infertility. He is well informed and an excellent acupuncturist. We eventually got pregnant through IVF and I believe acupuncture played a big part in that. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Martin Dean.
Martin helped me with an acupuncture regime with amazing results.
Nausea (morning sickness) abated after second treatment. Currently much more manageable.
I'm overjoyed to tell you that on October 29 our son was born a healthy 3.4Kg. Thank you for your help with our IVF acupuncture!
So many things were considered
I am almost into the third trimester and have suffered less from poor circulation in my fingers. I can't think of anything that could have been better - so many things were considered such as the temperature of the room which is very important to me.
I brought two 5 session bundles of acupuncture to support my fertility treatment. Martin was a great support through out the process we always discussed the treatment and he flexed it to suit my needs, we also had fun and Martin made the experience enjoyable
Will definitely recommend you to any one!
Acupuncture did work for us and the second morning 3(am) after our session with you , contractions has started! By Saturday we had our little girl!!! Thank you once again ! Will definitely recommend you to any one !!!
Achieved Our Dreams
Not sure we could have achieved all our dreams without you, so just wanted to say thanks for being the calming influence that you were.
I brought two 5 session bundles of acupuncture to support my fertility treatment. Martin was great. Martin came highly recommended. I was very pleased with both the in-depth information given & the actual treatment. He treats the 'whole person' and I found this way of breaking down a problem into manageable, bite-size pieces, extremely helpful. I actually felt better just from the consultation. To be 'listened to' and 'understood' is so refreshing. Thoroughly recommend you give it a try.
We are expecting twins
I believe that acupuncture definitely helped me. My stress levels reduced quite noticeably which was great. We are expecting twins.
