Acupuncture is a safe, drug free treatment which can be used throughout pregnancy. Any pregnancy related issues including indigestion, nausea, pelvic pain, constipation, fatigue, anaemia, insomnia, itching, hypertension, oedema, urinary tract infections and threatened miscarriage can be treated. Acupuncture has been proven to successfully turn babies in breech position. Used in the month prior to the due date acupuncture can promote spontaneous labour and it can also be used as a drug free form of induction in overdue pregnancies. Acupressure points for pain relief can also be taught to the birthing partner to help ease labour pains.

Fertility Treatments

Acupuncture offers a non- invasive approach to treating infertility and research has shown that it increases a couples’ ability to conceive naturally. It also proven to be an effective complement to medical interventions such as IVF. As well as acupuncture and dietary advice we are stockists of the Natural Health Practice Vitamins that were formulated by Dr. Marilyn Glenville PhD, the UK's leading authority on increasing fertility naturally.

cosmetic acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and highly effective means of facial rejuvenation. It involves direct application of ultra-fine needles to the face to treat lines, drooping eyelids or jowls and puffiness. Oxygen supply is improved, the lymphatic system is stimulated to drain away toxins and collagen production is increased. The benefits of cosmetic acupuncture are that it is not simply a natural facelift but the whole body is revitalised by this holistic approach resulting in a healthy glow.

Weight Loss

Acupuncture can help weight loss along with dietary measures and exercise. It has a calming and relaxing effect that makes it easier to deal with stress, frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating. It also acts on the digestive and hormonal systems in the body and can help in restoring any imbalance in these systems.

Food Testing

Many medical conditions - for example, irritable bowel, asthma, eczema, arthritis, sinusitis, migraine – are in fact nothing more than different manifestations of the same phenomenon – food intolerance.

We offer the Fitzwilliam Food Test to help our patients to take control of their health. Fitzwilliam Food test Clinic, having been involved with food intolerance testing since 1983, and having worked with nearly every test which is available, holds that this IgG pinprick test is the most reliable and most useful diagnostic test currently available.

This IgG food intolerance test is a laboratory based test. Laboratory testing is the only reliable/scientific way to test for food intolerance. A great advantage of this test is that it only requires a few pinprick drops of blood to do the analysis.

This test is able to grade the degree of intolerance to the particular foods. People who have food intolerance issues generally have two or three primary foods causing all of their problems, along with a small number of secondary foods.

Two types of food test are available:

  • 93 Food Test
  • 40 Food Test
