Acupuncture & Herbs for Fertility

Claire Truss has a special interest in acupuncture & herbs for fertility, having used acupuncture for fertility herself.

There may be a number of reasons why you are interested in acupuncture and/or herbs:

  • in preparation for conception, to be in optimal health
  • you have been trying to conceive naturally for a while and have no known fertility issues – unexplained infertility
  • you have been trying to conceive naturally for a while and have known fertility issues
  • you want to compliment fertility treatment with acupuncture –  IVF or other fertility treatments
  • you already have one or more children but are having difficulty conceiving and/or holding further pregnancies to term – secondary infertility

The number of treatments required varies by each individual.

Acupuncture & herbs takes a holistic approach, treating the whole individual. By helping to restore balance and promote physical & emotional harmony, acupuncture gets to the root of imbalance and doesn’t just treat medical labels.
