Acupuncture

Dr (TCM) Angelo D’Alberto treats all conditions with acupuncture and Chinese medicine and regularly sees patients with fertility and menstrual problems, pain, headaches, digestive problems, stress and anxiety. He has years of experience using acupuncture and Chinese medicine to help couples conceive naturally or through the use of assisted reproductive techniques such as IVF. Any type of pain is usually greatly improved after just one treatment. Acupuncture is one branch of Chinese traditional medicine that has been developed and practiced in China, Japan and other Asian countries for at least 2000 years. It is has gained increasing popularity in the West over the last 2 decades which has led to more and more clinical trials being performed that have validated acupuncture’s effectiveness.

During an acupuncture treatment, very small, fine, and sterile needles are inserted just below the surface of the skin to stimulate certain known points which aim to restore balance and any problems that may have arisen because of this lack of balance. On average Angelo inserts between 8-12 needles per session commonly on the lower arms, lower legs, abdomen and back.

Acupuncture is effective because it is a holistic therapy that addresses the cause of any disharmony as well as the symptoms and has been tested on millions of people (as opposed to animals!) over millennia. This means that as a result of acupuncture treatment you will experience an overall improvement in the quality of your health as well as relief from symptoms.

The sensation of acupuncture can feel like a numb, tingling, or dull aching sensation which lasts only for a few moments. Most patients are obviously a little anxious before their first session but are pleasantly surprised at how painless it is and how relaxed they feel after.


Infertility

Many women see Angelo with recognised conditions that can cause infertility, for example:

acupuncture

  1. Endometriosis
  2. Blocked Fallopian tubes
  3. Polycystic ovaries
  4. Fibroids
  5. Premature ovarian failure
  6. High FSH
  7. Recurrent miscarriage

But what is most common is that the woman is 35+ and all her tests and scans are normal and she has a diagnosis of ‘unexplained infertility’. Whether or not the couple are considering assisted reproduction i.e. IUI, IVF, ICSI then acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be of great assistance in achieving a pregnancy.

Moxibustion

moxibustionMoxibustion is a part of acupuncture treatment that aims to bring heat directly into the body by burning a dried herb called mugwort directly over an acupuncture point or on top of an acupuncture needle. It is used to treat conditions where the patient tends to be cold or weak or where there is poor blood flow and combined with acupuncture the effects are profound.

Moxibustion is particularly important for women with a breech baby. For more information on this please contact Angelo

Testimonials

I saw you a couple of weeks ago with my overdue pregnancy. Just thought I would let you know that I went into labour the day before my sweep was booked for. My labour was a lot quicker than the first, and I feel a LOT better now than I did after my first! Everyone said how well rested I looked after your treatment, and more energised, and I certainly felt a lot more energised too – so thank you.

I came to see Angelo after a series of miscarriages which were very distressing. I had just found out I was pregnant again and was very apprehensive. Angelo has a very sensitive approach to put you at ease and knows so much re fertility and miscarriages so I really felt confident about his expertise. I had regular sessions for the first 12 weeks and maintenance ones after and am convinced the acupuncture helped me have my little baby boy. I would highly recommend him.
