Acupuncturist, Chinese Herbal Medicine Practitioner in Covent Garden, Holborn and Central London. Fertility Acupuncture Central London
- I am an acupuncturist based in Covent Garden. I also practice fertility acupuncture in central London.
Welcome to my website.
I am a fully qualified practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and I have practised Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in Holborn and Covent Garden since 1997.
- I am a member of the following organizations:
- The British Acupuncture Council
- Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine
- The Shiatsu Society
- Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine
- TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is composed of Acupuncture (and Moxibustion), Chinese Herbal Medicine, Diet, Manipulative Therapy and also encompasses the remedial exercises Qi Gong and Tai Ji. As a practitioner I have studied extensively all these disciplines and have incorporated them all into my TCM practice.
- Acupunture and Chinese Herbal Medicine constitute the main body of Traditional Chinese Medicine. They have been practiced for over 2000 years in the East and are being used today throughout the world.
- At my acupuncture clinic in Covent Garden I see patients with variety of health problems including Gynaecology, Fertility, IVF, Digestive Disorders, Dermatology, Respiratory and Circulatory, Immune Deficiency, Stress and Anxiety, Urinary and Musculo-Skeletal.
- Both therapies can be used on their own or safely combined with each other and both are generally compatible with Conventional Western Medicine.
- Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine have been used extensively for the treatment of infertility. Both have a strong influence on the reproductive and endocrine systems and therefore can help address imbalances in the body, which could prohibit conception or cause miscarriage. Some of these imbalances could be the result of constitutional weakness, lifestyle, diet, stress or anxiety.
- I have been working with both women and men on issues of Infertility for 18 years. In that time I have helped many women conceive and have supported them through their pregnancy and the postnatal period. I have also extensive experience in performing acupuncture in conjunction with IVF procedures.
- A German study on Acupuncture & ART concluded that using acupuncture with IVF achieved a 42.5% clinical pregnancy rate compared to 26.3% in the group that did not receive acupuncture.
- Women are three and a half times more likely to conceive using Chinese Herbs than with conventional drug therapy alone.
Research involving 1,851 women by the University of Adelaide, Australia.
- My clinical experience is that this rate increases even more with the broader support of both Chinese herbs and acupuncture in preparation for the IVF procedure.

- I have been practicing as an acupuncturist in Covent Garden at The Neal's Yard Therapy Rooms since 2001. At The Therapy Rooms I give acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine for various conditions and also I have a long standing experience on IVF and acupuncture for Fertility in central London.

Every month I would like to introduce, one of the conditions listed in the A to Z of conditions by posting extracts from the BAcC website.
Persistent (chronic) pain is a widespread problem that affects around 8 million people of all ages in the UK (Chronic Pain Policy 2010). In 22% of cases, chronic pain leads to depression, and some 25% of those diagnosed with chronic pain go on to lose their jobs (Chronic Pain Policy 2010). In fact, around £3.8 billion a year is spent on incapacity benefit payments to those diagnosed with chronic pain (Chronic Pain Policy 2010).
The International Association for the Study of Pain has defined pain "as an unpleasant sensory or emotional experience resulting from actual or potential tissue damageā€¦". Chronic pain may be defined as pain that lasts beyond the usual course of the acute disease or expected time of healing, and it may continue indefinitely.
Typical chronic pain conditions include: osteoarthritis; rheumatoid arthritis; low back, shoulder and neck pain; headache and migraine; cancer pain; fibromyalgia; neuropathic pain (e.g. sciatica, trigeminal neuralgia, post herpetic neuralgia); chronic overuse conditions (e.g. tendonitis); and chronic visceral pain (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis) (Singh 2010).
