"I'm 38 years old... had a few failed
IVF and IUI attempts and then gave up trying... I am now 14 weeks pregnant with twins...
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this incredible turn around is in part due to
the acupuncture treatment."
"Acupuncture helped me in so many ways from my stress
to IBS to helping me become pregnant, I would recommend it to anyone. It's
painfree, calming and very relaxing and best of all, it works."
"After going through the emotional misery of 18 months of failing to conceive
naturally, starting acupuncture seemed to provide me with a breathing space to allow me
to get my emotions back under control. I continued it through 2 cycles of IVF and am
now pregnant. I couldn't recommend it highly enough."
