The Heathlands Clinic

Heathlands Clinic – Traditional Chinese Acupuncture – We are a sister team who are both members of the UK’s Acupuncture regulatory body, the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). We compliment and support your medical care during pregnancy and your postnatal period. All you need for a healthy pregnancy, birth and motherhood.

Traditional Chinese acupuncture can assist you throughout your journey to motherhood from preparing your body for conception to postnatal care with treatments directed to building up your strength and overall health.

We have a special interest in womens health, infertility and IVF. We work very closely with couples undergoing IVF cycles as the Western world are catching on the fact that when combined with IVF, traditional Chinese acupuncture has been proven to increase the odds of Clinical pregnancy by as much as 65% (British Medical Journal, 2008). In short, putting Chinese medicine with Western medicine creates a winning combination – epecially where fertility is concerned.

Regarding the treatment itself, during your pregnancy and the pre conceptual period we use acupuncture to help reduce stress by decreasing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system (often, high levels of stress are associated with reduced chances of conceiving).

It is also highly effective in improving blood circulation to the pelvic organs, including the ovaries and uterus, allowing the reproductive organs to work to their full potential.

A few other points for your information that we can help you with:

* Assistance with turning breech baby presentation in accordance with your midwife.

* We are a baby friendly clinic – Once you have your new arrival, get out of the house and bring your baby with you.

* Ladies, take advantage of our ‘Flexi’ treatment where you can stop and start your treatment if your baby needs to breast feed – dads with babies are welcome too.

*As we work together, there is a 2nd practitioner always on site to help with your baby’s other comforts (Nappy change, Bottle feed or Burping etc)

* We also offer Reflexology which is incredibly healing and relaxing.
