Are you trying to conceive? Do you have irregular or absence of periods? Are you preparing for IVF or have multiple IVF failures? Have you been told you have low ovarian reserve and poor egg quality?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions then I am here to help you.

HOW I CAN HELP

I have a comprehensive approach in the way I help my clients to restore their fertility and seldom rely only on the use of acupuncture exclusively. Many of the lifestyle factors are modifiable and I will help you to make healthier lifestyle choices to optimize your fertility. I will also assess your fertility and medical history in order to identify the possible causes that could be hindering your chances of getting pregnant. I can refer you to the relevant professional if I feel it’s necessary to optimize your chances to conceive and carry on with a healthy pregnancy. This can save time and money should it be more beneficial to have medical investigation/ intervention in the first place. However, if you choose not to pursue medical investigation, I can support that choice too.

About Eva Stecz

I graduated from Westminster University with a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture. I continued to refine my acupuncture clinical skills through many years of study with Master Nguyen Tinh Thong, a highly regarded East Asian physician and teacher. I have extensive clinical experience in the management of infertility having worked at City Fertility and the Zita West Clinic. Zita West Clinic is one of the leading integrated fertility clinics in the UK. It has been a privilege to work in this unique environment for many years where medical and complementary medicine professionals work in collaboration to help couples to conceive.

I have studied closely with medical doctors and fertility specialists including Dr George Ndukwe, a leading IVF doctor specializing in reproductive immunology. I have a particular interest in uncovering and managing general health conditions that might hinder optimal reproduction.

I am also keenly interested in fertility research and have lectured on both the use of acupuncture during IVF and the role of acupuncture in the management of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

ACUPUNCTURE

The primary aim of acupuncture is to restore the balance of seemingly two opposite fundamental energies called, Yin and Yang by puncturing acupuncture points with fine needles on different meridians, otherwise called energy channels. In this way a healthy interaction and communication among the different bodily systems can be achieved leading to the restoration and maintenance of optimal body functions and health.

ELECTROACUPUNCTURE

This a modern acupuncture technique in which electrodes are attached to the shaft of the acupuncture needles. When the electro-machine is switched on a low electric current is passed on between two needles. Patients may experience slight tingling or tapping sensation during treatment. It has been effectively used for pain relief and neurological conditions. It has been shown to alleviate pain for women with painful periods and restore/regulate ovulation.

AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE

CUPPING

Cups are placed on the skin to create pressure that sucks the skin inward and left there for no longer than 10min. The pressure that the cups create draw fresh blood to the skin surface that vitalizes and restores blood flow to the affected area. It is mainly used to relieve muscle tension and pain, help eliminate cold/flu and for general well-being by reducing stress/tension.achieved leading to the restoration and maintenance of optimal body functions and health.

  • I have visited Eva for acupuncture treatments during a number of IVF cycles. I have always found the treatments very relaxing and they have definitely helped me to approach the cycles in a calm and positive way and to be well prepared as possible. Eva has always been extremely knowledgeable, caring and supportive and I am very grateful for all the help and advice she has given me.

  • I was worried before that the needles would be painful, but Eva put me at ease and not a single one hurt. I felt that I was kept informed the whole way through the treatment as to what was happening and why it was. I am not being treated for fertility but I would highly recommend Eva and this type of treatment for all types of illnesses.

     I first experienced abdominal massage when my acupuncturist performed tuina (traditional Chinese massage) on my belly in order to alleviate digestive issues I had been experiencing.
