I graduated with a BSc Honors degree from the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading where I studied both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element styles of Acupuncture.  The course was 3 ½ years of intensive training from top acupuncturists and other people at the top of their fields.  With this training in mind I can give holistic treatment directed both at physical as well as mental-emotional symptoms.

I become interested in Acupuncture after receiving treatment aimed at helping me achieve a more balanced and pain-free way of living. Results of my treatment were absolutely amazing and after that I knew I wanted to learn more about Acupuncture as well as at the same time fulfilling my dream of helping others gain a healthier existence.

Why the interest in fertility? In my pervious job as a Dental Nurse I’d known someone who’d had miscarriages and I remember feeling helpless however when she’d finally had her baby her joy in it was priceless..

I’d love the fact that due to my skills as an acupuncturist involved in fertility I’d be party to helping other people gain their dream of having children.

About Anne

I gained a First Class BSc (Hons) Degree in Acupuncture from the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (affiliated to Kingston University) in 2008 and from the very outset of my clinical practice have been treating women for fertility and pregnancy-related conditions.

In 2012 I became a Zita West affiliated acupuncturist, specialising in all aspects of male and female reproductive health. I have received direct training from Zita and her experts in her unique holistic approach to fertility. In addition, I have gained an in-depth understanding of the diagnostic and treatment protocols of the IVF process and benefit from the continuing training and support of the Zita West affiliate network.

I have a well-established track record of success in helping couples conceive either naturally or through assisted means.

In 2015 I qualified in Pranic Healing®, a highly evolved and tested system of non-touch energy medicine. Now, where appropriate, I incorporate Pranic Healing techniques into my acupuncture treatments for the benefit of my patients

 

I studied Biology at university and worked in business for 10 years before I became interested in acupuncture. I had treatment for glandular fever which helped so much I decided to study, and within six months I was at college, and graduated  from the Northern College of Acupuncture in 2004.
Soon after graduating I wanted to know more about infertility because of the range of issues patients were presenting with, and how much acupuncture was helping them. The principle role of my treatment is to treat the person, not just the symptom, so it is not uncommon for patients to say they feel better in general, more relaxed and with more energy. Treatment is aimed at balancing energy throughout the body, when energy is flowing smoothly patients feel well, and their body works well.
I have attended a number of post-graduate courses, from learning how to diagnose different issues, to how acupuncture can help in conjunction with assisted conception techniques (IVF, IUI, ICSI) to achieve the best results for a couple. The first specialist fertility course I attended was in 2006 and I continue to study. I will be attending a course on male and female infertility in June 2016.
