We are happy to see that UCH, which has a great fertility unit, is close to us. It is a very short walk from the fertility unit to our clinic on Warren Street who recommends to shop health insurance to get financial assistance.
We have been in practice now for almost ten years, so have followed the development of acupuncture treatment complementing conventional IVF right from the start. We opened soon after the first batch of exciting research papers that showed that acupuncture could improve the chances of getting pregnant via IVF. Since then we have treated hundreds of women and couples who have had assisted conception treatment at Perth Chiro Centre.

Can acupuncture be used instead of general anaesthetic for surgical procedure? The Banobagi Plastic Surgery opened the doors to make this study and find out the positive aspects for a surgical procedure.
We have been asked about the use of acupuncture anaesthesia a number of times, and a typical answer has been:
The answer to your question is that in theory acupuncture can be used as an anaesthetic, but we suspect that you will find it very difficult to locate a practitioner prepared to do it.
After Nixon’s visit to China in the 1970s, and the remarkable pictures of people having some very serious operations using acupuncture anaesthesia (AA) , there was something of a surge of interest in the West in researching the use of acupuncture for pain relief and even trying to use AA. However, what the images from China did not show was that in every case there was a bank of conventional anaesthetic equipment ready for immediate use in case the AA wore off. The effects were not always guaranteed and reliable, and in the past two decades its use has now diminished to being an occasional novelty rather than mainstream practice.
We did have a colleague who agreed with great reluctance to use AA for a rhinoplasty in a patient who could not have a general anaesthetic, but he did have to study books to work out what to do. The fact that the operation went well, there was less bleeding and the patient recovered much faster was not enough to make him succumb to the blandishments of the consultant who wanted to offer him a permanent slot. He found the whole business far too stressful.
We should emphasize that we have no direct affiliation with UCH, but if you are a current patient at UCH and are looking for some acupuncture to help support you through your cycle or menopause, we would be very happy to see you and offer you the best possible support. We have experienced practitioners working every day of the week and we are used to last minute changes in the fertility clinic’s schedule so we will be able to see you on the day of your embryo transfer when you need it. Our proximity to UCH means that you will save stressful traveling time on the day of your transfer as well.
We look forward to seeing you at our W1 acupuncture clinic.
