Happy Clients

"I experienced two failed IVF cycles before I tried acupuncture. A colleague recommended Charlotte, and I am so pleased as my third cycle was a huge success. Charlotte is an absolute professional. She is empathetic and extremely knowledgeable about IVF terminology, drug regimes and provides a holistic approach to healthcare. I recommend Charlotte to all my friends trying for a baby."

Catherine Stokes

London

"I approached Charlotte with long haul covid. I was exhausted, unable to concentrate and had developed a skin rash that prevented me from sleeping. My entire body still ached and I felt really desperate. Acupuncture completely saved me. My body is less tired, quality of sleep and concentration much improved. My mood has shifted and the skin clearer. Thank you, Charlotte for everything."

Karen Worthing

My baby is breech, what can I do?

Acupuncture and Moxibustion, is recommended for breech presentation. Research studies highlight success rates in excess of 84% after 34 weeks. A moxa stick is used on a daily basis at home to turn the baby into a head down position. 

How effective is acupuncture for labour induction?

According to one study, 70% of the women who received acupuncture went into labor on their own, compared to 50% who received standard care. The women who received acupuncture were also less likely to deliver by cesarean section — 39% compared to 17%.  Both acupuncture and acupressure help soften and dilate the cervix with onset of labour contractions.
