Traditional Chinese Medicine Five Elements Acupuncture Ear Acupuncture Gua Sha Cupping


Acupuncture is a fundamental component of traditional Chinese Medicine, which is a comprehensive system of ancient healing practices. It is considered one of the essential pillars of this holistic approach, alongside herbs, tui na (massage), and clinical Qigong (movement).

Acupuncture involves the precise insertion of fine needles into specific points along the body's meridians, with the goal of addressing stagnation, enhancing blood circulation, and restoring the flow of Qi (vital energy).

There are various branches of acupuncture. Michaela is qualified in both Five Elements and Traditional Chinese Medicine styles of acupuncture.

Acupuncture is a highly effective treatment modality for a variety of conditions such as pain, headaches, migraines, mood disorders, gyneacological issues, and pregnancy support. It is commonly utilized in fertility treatments as well.

"Most recently I have undertaken a course of acupuncture with Michaela and have been surprised at the immediate impact these sessions have had. Again Michaela has tailored these specifically to me. Thank you for all your care Michaela - you have made a huge difference to both my physical and mental wellbeing and I am immensely grateful.

Our approach to fertility appointments is thorough and comprehensive. The initial appointment is 75 minutes in duration, during which we conduct a full traditional diagnosis that includes a consultation to discuss your symptoms, western medical diagnosis, tests, and lifestyle factors. Follow up appointments are 60 minutes long. As a qualified fertility reflexologist, I am able to provide either acupuncture or reflexology during follow up appointments, depending on the agreed care plan and your personal preference. Each appointment is dedicated solely to you, allowing for a focused hour of discussion, relaxation, and rest.

For optimal results, we recommend scheduling regular appointments over a period of 2-3 months. This timeframe aligns with the 3-month maturation cycle of antral follicles and sperm rejuvenation, ultimately leading to the best possible outcome for your fertility journey.

'' I see Michaela most weeks and we alternate between acupuncture and facial reflexology session. She is great at explaining what she is doing and why but also allowing you to relax at the right time. I would highly recommend Michaela for both acupuncture and reflexology. It is great to have found someone who is able to offer both services.''
