Denise came to the clinic initially because of a fertility issue. She had conceived her first child through IVF and had been using IVF in order to get pregnant with her second. She was yet to have a successful implantation and decided to support her wish for a second child with the help of Oriental Medicine.

Denise received acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbs for two months according to the phases of her menstrual cycle, the focus being on timing treatments prior to egg harvest and on the day of the egg transfer.

After her twelfth session, Denise's estrogen level had improved and her cycle had become more regular. Following her fifteenth session she became pregnant.
Her pregnancy proceeded normally with sessions every fortnight to help avoid miscarriage and at ten weeks, Denise was treated with acupuncture and moxibustion to relieve morning sickness.

During her second and third trimesters Denise was coming to the clinic once a month to encourage the flow of vital energies in both mother and baby. At thirty weeks Denise returned to the clinic as her baby was in a breech position.

After three sessions of acupuncture and moxibustion the baby turned around in preparation for birth. At thirty nine and forty weeks Denise received treatment to help induce birth and at forty one weeks she gave birth naturally, avoiding the cesarean section that occurred with her first birth.




Amanda (name changed) came to clinic because of infertility for more than 2 years. She already had had two miscarriages and she wanted to try Oriental Medicine to support her pregnancy.

Her cycle was irregular between 28-42 days with heavy period pain.

She came to clinic every two weeks for two months. Her period pain got less and her cycle became regular.

Her Gynaecologist found endometriosis which had blocked her right fallopian tube, so she decided to start IVF treatment.

After her first IVF session, although she suffered from constant spotting, she became pregnant with her first child.

She received treatments to help avoid miscarriage and stopped bleeding at around seven weeks.

During her pregnancy she came to our clinic once every two weeks to relieve her body, especially hip and lower back, relax her mind, as well as encouraging energy flow to mother & baby.

At thirty-nine weeks she had a beautiful daughter!
