With the benefit of having worked in Chinese medicine for over 30 years, I can help you work out why you are not conceiving and treat you with acupuncture and herbs according to an individualised plan.
I can help you maximise your fertility and pinpoint your most fertile times, with some tips for improving your chances. Where appropriate I can teach you how to chart your cycle and help you to interpret the results.
Together we can make a plan for your diet and exercise that is manageable and has some flexibility, and prioritise which changes you may need to make to your lifestyle.
We can work through the various blood tests and investigations you may need or have had and what they all mean.
We can talk through any issues going on for you with your partner or work or any else that may be getting in the way of your fertility.
I can be available to you via email between appointments for ant questions or issues that arise.
We can continue appointments into early pregnancy, as and when needed, in particular when there are any risk factors.
Elaine specialises in treating fertility issues, both male and female.
I have been practising Acupuncture in Brighton and Hove for over 25 years. I have a Masters degree in Chinese Herbal Medicine, and have studied extensively in the fields of Gynaecology and Infertility at a post graduate level.
I am also qualified as a Fertility Care practitioner, teaching women to chart their cycles with a view to pinpointing optimum times of fertility and diagnosing hormonal imbalances.
I have an interest in Chinese dietary therapy and take a gentle and balanced approach to helping people make changes to diet and lifestyle.
I belong to and am insured by the British Acupuncture Council and The Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine, and abide by their code of ethics.
I belong to the Acupuncture Childbirth Team locally which is dedicated to providing pregnancy and birth acupuncture. We teach acupressure techniques for birthing partners and regularly teach workshops for midwives on pain relief and breech presentation.
