How did you begin working with fertility patients?

When I decided to train as an acupuncturist I always knew that fertility was going to be my area of interest. I had seen the difficulties that some of my family and friends had been through in order to start a family, and I knew that working with couples in order for them to achieve their dream of starting a family would be hugely fulfilling.  I see many fertility patients in my own practice and was lucky enough to start working with reproductive health group in 2015.

What does your job involve?

As an traditional acupuncturist I look at patients in a holistic way.  In a session I would review all the patients’ medical history and ask them lots about their general health and wellbeing. This helps to give me a picture of what is out of  balance for that patient  that might be hindering their chances of becoming pregnant or producing the best quality sperm.  If a patient is undergoing fertility treatment then this also informs the treatment plan and determines which acupuncture points I use. Patients are often surprised just how relaxing (and painless!) acupuncture can be and love the sense of calm it brings to them.

What aspect of your job is the most rewarding?

It is always so fantastic when treatment results in a pregnancy for a patient, getting visits in my clinic from the babies that you have had a part in creating has got to be the best part of my job!

How did you begin working with fertility patients?

I have been practising acupuncture from 2 different clinics in Stockport for 13 years and am delighted to have worked at RHG for the last 12 months.

My work with fertility patients goes back much further than this however. My interest in this field was first piqued early in my practice when a growing number of fertility patients started to turn up at my door. Word had got out, backed by research, that acupuncture  was very beneficial to couples trying for a baby, both naturally and through assisted conception.

Then events in my personal life brought me into closer contact with the world of assisted reproduction. After years of trying for a baby, we turned to IVF treatment and had the tremendous good luck to give birth to a beautiful baby. All through the process, I had received acupuncture myself and so I know, first hand, just how beneficial it is.

What does your job involve?

I work with couples in different ways, depending on their needs. Sometimes one or both has treatment for 1 – 3 months leading up to an IVF cycle, sometimes women just ask for a treatment at embryo transfer. We work on underlying imbalances, drug side-effects and promote relaxation.

    What aspect of your job is the most rewarding?

    There can be nothing more rewarding than an email or text from a delighted parent, telling me that their baby has just been born, followed swiftly by photos of the beautiful bundle of joy. However, just using acupuncture to help people through their journey is a huge reward in itself.

    Five Element Acupuncture Practitioner

    How did you begin working with fertility patients?

    Hi, my name is Mandy, I am a Five Element Acupuncture Practitioner and have Acupuncture clinics in Hale, Altrincham and Mold, in north Wales.

    I have been helping patients with fertility support for over 10 years now as shortly after I qualified as an Acupuncturist, I was asked by Gerad Kite (who is recognised internationally as an Acupuncture Master and a Fertility Expert) to work in his team. In 2011, I worked at GyneHealth, Professor Nardo’s city centre clinic in Manchester. In 2014, I helped set up the Acupuncture service at RHG and in 2016, I was asked by Professor Nardo if I would take on a support role at RHG, working as a part time as a ‘Care Co-ordinator’ which I did for 9 months.

    What does your job involve?

    Whether you have spent years trying to have a baby or are thinking of starting IVF, it is normal to feel nervous and overwhelmed about the whole process. My job as a Five Element Acupuncturist is to support fertility couples by giving them sessions of acupuncture before, during and after their assisted fertility treatments, in order to improve their health emotionally, physically and mentally. There is evidence to prove that having Acupuncture during IVF will significantly improve birth rate and is a suitable treatment option to help reduce stress and anxiety levels.

      What aspect of your job is the most rewarding?

      Knowing that I have provided patients with the very best care and the highest standard of acupuncture treatments is always my goal. I really do love my work and it is always such a pleasure to see my patients health change for the better.

      How did you begin working with fertility patients?

      Working with couples that are on a fertility journey is something that happened organically at the beginning of my career as an Acupuncturist 9 years ago. Acupuncture is an ancient and popular go to treatement for couples that are trying to conceive and they often find it very beneficial in supporting them mentally and physically on their path towards a healthy pregnancy.

      What does your job involve?

      As an Acupuncturist there is an art to the creation of a balanced formula which addresses the patients disharmonies whilst offering a safe space to be listened to, cared for and understood. There is much more to an acupuncture session than just the needles. Patients will leave feeling relaxed, supported and listened to.

        What aspect of your job is the most rewarding?

        The most rewarding part of my job is helping patients to become empowered in finding their own unique balance of a healthy and happy life by offering acupuncture treatments that are unique to their needs.
