I am delighted to receive fertility acupuncture testimonials from my patients. Much of my ongoing work is a result of referrals from satisfied patients.
‘I first went to see Rick when I was 38 on recommendation from a friend who also had fertility problems but went onto conceive naturally after being treated by him. As one of our issues was male factor, I persuaded my husband to be treated as well, even though he was needle phobic! My husbands count trebled and morphology and motility rates improved too. We managed to conceive naturally. Our daughter was born in July this year. We found Rick to be professional and courteous at all times & would highly recommend him – after all the results speak for themselves!’

‘I started acupuncture with Rick before getting pregnant, as research shows that acupuncture can help this happen. I got pregnant straightaway, and have continued seeing Rick throughout my pregnancy.’

‘Having had irregular periods for many years and failing to conceive naturally, we were referred for IVF treatment where I discovered I had PCOS. A friend recommended acupuncture during IVF and we contacted Rick to discuss the benefits of treatment. Unfortunately, our first cycle of IVF was cancelled before egg collection due to severe over-stimulation, a complication caused by PCOS. However, Richard was so very helpful following this and provided treatment prior to and during our next IVF cycle, which fortunately was successful. My husband also had a few sessions of acupuncture for his sperm and having had this tested afterwards, there were significant improvements in the count, abnormal forms and motility. We are certain that Rick’s treatment helped us to overcome the complications of IVF with PCOS and conceive and in a very short space of time. I also visited Richard during my pregnancy and afterwards, which again I am sure helped with my post birth recovery. Rick is extremely professional and knowledgeable, he provided a very relaxing and calm environment, making it an enjoyable experience at each visit. Thank you Rick for helping us to conceive our wonderful son Henry.’

‘Richard was recommended to me by a friend with fertility issues. He has treated me for menstrual migraine and other problems associated with my cycle and previous fertility problems. I am happy to say I have not had a migraine for months now and my periods are back to normal for the first time in years. Richard is highly professional and you feel like you are in safe hands.’

‘I decided to see Richard for acupuncture treatment after discovering that I had fertility issues (10 million sperm count 95% non motile 96% abnormal forms). From the initial consultation I have found Richard to be an exceptionally personable man. He instantly put me at ease and has really helped me to make sense of the position I find myself in. He also has been able to clearly communicate the complexities of the treatment in a way I can understand. I have now had six sessions, all of which I have come away from feeling increasingly more positive about my situation. My latest semen analysis results show what I consider to be an incredible improvement (44million sperm count and 68% motility and 18% normal forms) which is considered to be ‘normal’. Therefore I am in no doubt that acupuncture combined with a healthy lifestyle is an extremely effective process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard or indeed using his services to treat other issues’

‘Acupuncture really helped me to manage the drug-related headaches I experienced with IVF. I was delighted when an almost incapacitating and constant headache lifted during treatment, and regular sessions seem to be both limiting the headaches and increasing my energy levels.’

Rick is highly professional, experienced and knowledgable. Acupuncture with Rick helped my partner and I to conceive naturally when it looked like ivf was our most likely route.
I cannot recommend acupuncture with Rick enough. It helped to bring balance, understanding and consciousness to our fertility problems. I continued with acupuncture during my pregnancy and it really helped with my general health. We now have a beautiful boy!
