Pregnancy – Conceiving Naturally

Following on from the previous post by Acupuncturist Laura Jones about the menstrual cycle she now talks about conceiving naturally.

“I think nowadays many of us believe falling pregnant is going to be easy… But unfortunately 1 in 7 couples are said to be struggling to conceive here in the UK (2013 NHS stats) that’s approximately 3.5 million people! Almost 30% of these cases are unexplained. For those going through that turbulent time of trying to conceive without success, the idea of there being “a problem” can be all consuming and scary. Often leaving either or both partners feeling guilty and helpless… Many emotions fluctuate and can cause anxiety, stress, depression… It’s unique to each person and that in turn can disrupt your insides!

Conceive

There’s a very delicate balance of hormones required of both parties in order to fall pregnant let alone making sure you’re utlitisng the optimum time in the woman’s cycle! It’s amazing we conceive at all! 

Acupuncture can really help get things moving with natural Fertility, I’m very happy to say I’ve helped women fall pregnant without any of the synthetic drugs or invasive procedures many women immediately opt for. At the end of my series of posts surrounding this subject I will write an FAQ all about Acupuncture and Fertility. But if you want to find out more or get the ball rolling please call me to book a free consultation to meet me at either Cedar Hall Clinic in Stanford le Hope or Thundersley, Benfleet. You’re not alone”

Acupuncture is for Everyone

Acupuncture really is for everyone!

My youngest patient was 7 and my oldest is 86!

Its amazing what acupuncture is capabale of treating safely and effectively. It’s not scary or painful, many patients report an increased sense of wellbeing, a better night’s sleep and a boost of energy alongside the reduction and resolution of the symptoms they came in hoping to get rid of!

acupuncture peopleIt’s rarely just about some little pins, a combination of Tui Na massage and cupping is often involved or can be used solely if preferred…. It’s easy to find out if you’re suitable for Acupuncture by making a diagnostic assessment appointment through our website for just £20 or call the clinic directly.

I have a few spaces for new patients currently which aren’t always easy to come by so don’t hesitate! And if you’re not suitable, referrals to one of my colleagues, back to the NHS/GP or for an MRI can be done if necessary!

Summer Shoulders

What on earth are you all doing to your shoulders this time of year?!
Cracking on with sorting the garden, hoisting beach bags and holiday luggage about or maybe even having some awkwardly positioned sunbathing naps??? …

Whatever you’re upto I’ve had a massive increase in patients presenting with shoulder pains and mobility issues!! Luckily acupuncture is proving very helpful in regaining normality and controlling the pain!

Acupuncture for Women’s Health & Fertility

I’m going to use this post day to start talking about Acupuncture and women’s health and Fertility as I get asked all the time about it!

Best to start with the menstrual cycle! In the diagram above you can see the plight of a woman’s hormone cycle! Every month fluctuations of these phases occur and can cause a multitude of physical and emotional symptoms. Every woman’s cycle is unique to them! 

Menstrual Cycle
Acupuncture can help smooth things over during ovulation, PMT time and the period itself! Many of my patients report lesser mood swings, increased quality of sleep and a reduction of pain during their period.

It’s worth considering if you want some control over your menstrual symptoms…
If you have a hormonal imbalance, endometriosis, pcos or irregular, heavy/clotted or painful periods give it a go!

Next time I will post about natural Fertility…..
Until then! If you need an appointment for treatment or assessment please call the clinic or book instantly online.

Cupping & Tui Na

CuppingCupping can be used to find the zones causing pain and stiffness and relieve them of their stagnation. These marks are textbook for localised pain and typical of someone suffering from Fybromyalgia. They’re not too dark or densely speckled and you’ll notice not every placement produced the marking… Followed up by some Tui Na (Chinese massage) . The relief a patient feels post treatment is extraordinary! A patients words after treatment  today were “I feel so much lighter and free”
This patient used to see our Acupuncturist Laura Jones every week for 6 weeks to manage her symptoms then gradually spaced treatment out so now she is seen once a month. 
Acupuncture and cupping isn’t painful.

These marks will slowly fade as the body removes the waste and allow for better blood flow therefore less painYou can make an appointment to try cupping or acupuncture or both!

Free consultations available if you want to find out more before giving it a go

Your body. One whole complex piece

Your body works as one whole complex piece! We have the tendancy to compartmentalise our bodies and focus on one bit at a time when there’s an issue. Often at times forgetting that emotion strongly affects physiology and that our organs feel stress too!

Where do you feel your worry? Fear? Joy? Anger? Grief? As just one example – you might feel “sick to the stomach” with worry….

Think about how you experience health and illness and view your body inside and out as a whole system

Following on  but on the same theme here’s a fun image showing the names of muscles! All of which work well as a team. You’re never really using just one! And they need smooth functioning fascia, tendons and ligaments too. Keep your system running at its best.
