Accredited Kinesiology Training School
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.
Many women see Angelo with recognised conditions that can cause infertility, for example:
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 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
