Acupuncture and Infertility at Kensington
Acupuncture works best when a functional problem is the cause of infertility, specifically when endometriosis, ovulatory problems or hormonal imbalances are the cause for not getting pregnant. Research studies demonstrates that during the first three weeks of pregnancy women with high cortisol levels (cortisol is a hormone responsible for several stress related activities in the body) are nearly three times more likely to miscarry than women with normal levels of cortisol.
The study found that miscarriages were 2.7 times more likely among women with increased cortisol levels. Miscarriages happened after an average of about two weeks of pregnancy. 90% of women with high cortisol levels miscarried in the first three weeks of pregnancy. 33% of women with normal cortisol levels miscarried in the first three weeks of pregnancy. To keep cortisol levels healthy and under control, the body's relaxation response must be activated. You can learn to relax your body with various stress management techniques & you can make lifestyle changes in order to keep your body from reacting to stress in the first place. The following have been found by many to be helpful in relaxing the body & mind, aiding the body in maintaining healthy cortisol levels.

Female Infertility at Harley Street
Many women chose acupuncture infertility treatment either on its own or in conjunction with assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures, such as IVF. Studies have proved the effectiveness of acupuncture for infertility. A 2004 study conducted by the Reproductive Medicine and Fertility Center in Colorado found that 51% of women who underwent both IVF and acupuncture treatment at the same time became pregnant, while only 36% of those who only underwent IVF did. The latter group also had higher rates of miscarriage stillbirth (20%) compared to those women who had received acupuncture (8%). Our Women's Health & Fertility Acupuncture clinic supports your goals through Chinese medical treatments & acupuncture which can greatly enhance your chances for pregnancy whether you are trying to get pregnant naturally or undergoing IVF or other assisted reproductive procedures.

What our clients are saying
I highly recommend Nillie after trying numerous unsuccessful visits to osteopaths across London. I was suffering from chronic back and neck pain following a career in professional showjumping. Nillie's extensive knowledge in the science of the body made me comfortable that i was in safe hands from the very beginning. After just one session i could already feel how effective the combination of treatment had been - In just 3 sessions she was able to fix me in a way that no one had achieved in years! I return to the clinic for maintenance and continue to appreciate Nillie's expertise combined with her friendly approach which is second to none.
