Acupuncture is a system of healing developed over the past 3000 years in China. Extensive practice and research has shown acupuncture to be a safe and gentle treatment for the effective relief of many conditions.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the great herbal systems of the world, with an unbroken tradition going back to the 3rd century BC. It forms a major part of healthcare provision for a quarter of the world's population in China and is provided in state hospitals alongside western medicine.
Herbalism together with acupuncture, dietary advice, exercise and specialist massage, form the pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These disciplines are incorporated as required in the treatment of the individual. Disposable needles are used.

'We really have come on a journey together Maeve and I, and it has definitely been a roller coaster ride. I'm very grateful for her wisdom, emotional support and empathy and I would recommend her to anyone who is having trouble getting pregnant.
I want to say that I come from a family of Physicians and Nurses, so I most definitely don't disregard Western Medicine, but I do think that Chinese Medicine has something unique to offer, at this point in time, especially in the area of infertility. It is very interesting to note that a number of very successful IVF clinics offer or encourage patients to have acupuncture during their IVF cycle, as it has been proven to increase the success rate. I'm personally very pleased to see Eastern and Western Medicine working together in this way; it can only benefit us all.'
