Women’s health

Acupuncture is a natural therapy that helps to balance the nervous and hormonal systems and offers support for many women’s health concerns and needs.

Research shows that acupuncture can help in a wide range of women’s health conditions, including hormonal imbalance and menstrual complaints. It can significantly increase the chances of conception and assist during pregnancy and also help with the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause.

Wherever you are on your journey, acupuncture can greatly support you. Each treatment is based on your personal situation and is tailored to you and your body. The aim is not only to alleviate the current symptoms but also to address the underling imbalance, helping you to find more comfort as you progress in life.

Fertility and IVF support

Hormonal balance and regular ovulation, stress-levels, diet and lifestyle all have an impact on your fertility. Being in the best possible shape emotionally and physically will significantly increase your chances to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy, and acupuncture can greatly assist you in this.

Fertility focused acupuncture has been shown to increase chances of conception by regulating the menstrual cycle and promoting ovulation, increasing blood flow to the ovaries and the endometrium, promoting implantation and supporting pregnancy. By calming the nervous system, acupuncture promotes relaxation and can help you to cope with any anxiety or worry you might experience on your fertility journey.

Acupuncture is the most commonly used therapy alongside IVF, ICSI and other assisted reproductive technologies. There is a wide body of research showing that acupuncture increases the success rate of IVF cycles by reducing stress levels, improving hormone balance and embryo development, and reducing the unwanted side effects of medication.

I found acupuncture very helpful to support my IVF treatment at every stage. It was also amazing for my general wellbeing and helped me to reduce stress levels during an intense period of my life. Acupuncture treatment with Tatjana made me feel relaxed, content and supported. Tatjana really spends time to understand your situation and goes out of her way to provide a bespoke service. If you are in doubt that acupuncture can help you then try a few sessions with Tatjana first!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help over the past 9 months. I loved our sessions, they really allowed me to connect with my beautiful baby-girl and I am sure she is here because of them. Massive thank you for being a positive impact on our journey to a positive pregnancy and birth.

Pregnancy, birth-preparation and post-birth support

Acupuncture is a safe, gentle and effective form of treatment throughout pregnancy as it offers drug-free relief for a wide range of complaints and discomfort, including morning sickness, tiredness and exhaustion, insomnia and headaches, stress and anxiety.

Pre-birth acupuncture offers support for both the mind and the body in your final weeks of pregnancy.

A series of weekly treatments starting from week 36 will address your specific physical and emotional needs preparing and enabling a smooth transition to childbirth. From your due date, acupuncture can encourage the natural onset of labour.

After the birth of your baby, acupuncture can support naturally the healing process of your body, balancing and restoring vitality. From two weeks postpartum treatment will help you feel more stable and rebuild your system to ensure healing and full recovery after giving birth.

My pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome was really well managed with acupuncture, I felt positive effects immediately. I would absolutely recommend acupuncture treatment with Tatjana. I particularly like Tatjana’s holistic approach, taking into account all elements of health and wellbeing.

Perimenopause and Menopause

Perimenopause and menopause are times of great physical and emotional changes that can last several years and can have a serious impact on performance and quality of life.

Both are a natural and inevitable process, yet their effects can be highly variable. Some women experience minimal disruption to their everyday lives, while others endure symptoms for years before and after the end of their menstrual cycles.

It has been demonstrated that acupuncture can help alleviate associated symptoms, including tiredness and fatigue, sleep disturbance, anxiety and mood changes, hot flushes and headaches. Acupuncture can be used either as a stand-alone treatment or alongside other therapeutic approaches, including HRT.

Coming to the end of one’s reproductive life is a chance to reassess your lifestyle, values and priorities. Reframing the changes that occur during menopause as a transformation and adopting a more positive viewpoint can ease the transition. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine promote a more balanced experience, helping you move into the next stage of your life with optimism, confidence and good health.

Menopause has not been an easy for me. When I started my acupuncture journey I was a gibbering mess and Tatjana has definitely got me to a much better place. Using the combination of the Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Five Element style of acupuncture, to my mind, works very well. I certainly put Tatjana through her paces but she worked wonders and she never appeared anything but calm and compassionate.
