If you are already planning some assisted treatment (e.g. IUI or IVF), we are fully up to date with the most recent research protocols for acupuncture and IVF, and are able to offer these treatments to you.

Short biographies of our practitioners, all fully qualified and insured members of the British Acupuncture Council.
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.
After suffering from OCD and anxiety for many years, I decided to try acupuncture... Every session helped the anxiety stayed away for longer periods of time... I believe acupuncture to be one of the most effective methods of controlling my OCD and anxiety without any medication.
If you are looking to plan some acupuncture treatment before and after your embryo transfer, we can help. We are very close to the Lister clinic in SW1, and the ARGC and other central London clinics are easily accessible from our W1 clinic.
