Help with conceiving and work stress.

We are currently trying to conceive and I wanted to de-stress from the pressures of trying for a baby and the work stress.  I had acupuncture and moxibustion with Lily.  The care has been brilliant, I feel totally relaxed during and after my treatment.  From my first appointment Lily, I was made to feel welcome and that helped with the de-stressing from everyday life.  I would and have recommended Lily to family and friends.  I would say to people that if you are looking into acupuncture and other treatments I would highly recommend your services.  I have had a fantastic experience during my treatments.

Unexplained Infertility & Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET/FERC)

"My husband and I fell into the 'unknown infertility' diagnosis.  We had been trying to conceive since 2002 and I came round to the idea of trying acupuncture in 2007.

Acupuncture seemed to be one of the alternative medicines that could offer help with fertility problems.  Having looked on the internet for acupuncture I noted that Lily was a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network and her thorough training gave me the confidence that she has indepth knowledge and experience rather than a quick qualification. 

Having being treated by Lily for 4 months I found the whole acupunture experience fascinating.  After a number of years trying to get pregnant including 3 failed IUI's and 2 failed IVF cycles, I am convinced that combining acupunture with a drug free frozen embryo transfer is the reason that I became pregnant with twins.  Now we are parents to two healthy baby girls.

Lily is very professional and easy to open up to.  As fertility treatment is a specialist area for Lily it was comforting and reassuring to deal with someone who understood the medical terminology and could ask relevent questions necessary for my treatment. I would not hesitate to recomend Lily to others or to visit Lily again for any other problems that I may have in the future.

I was treated by Lily for about 4 months an found that an additional benefit of the treatment was an improvement in the blood circulation to my hands - especially the fingers and to my feet which normally suffered from the cold in the winter months.  I also found moxibustion to be very relaxing!"

Infertility & IVF

"My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 3 years.  I decided to try acupuncture following an article released in the BMJ showing an association with increased success rates of IVF alongside acupuncture.  I also wanted to use it for relaxation.  

My IVF worked first time!  I found the sessions very relaxing - it was good to have some time out.  Lily was also a fantastic listener!"

Infertility (3 Years) & Stress

"A friend had just started treatments with Lily to treat her infertility and recommended her.  I had tried acupuncture before and hadn't been very comfortable with the practitioner but decided to try Lily anyway.

Lily was extremely professional from the very start. I felt she really cared about her work and her patients, and was very understanding and very thorough. She told me I would need at least 12 treatments - by the 9th week, I was pregnant!

The treatments made me feel better generally, my periods improved immediately as did my basal body temperatures.  It was an added benefit that she is a good listener and helped me work through the stress the infertility had caused.

I cannot recommend Lily highly enough, she helped me all through my pregnancy and I am sure the lifestyle changes she recommended helped me get pregnancy again very quickly - I now have two lovely boys!"
