How acupuncture with Crispin might help you

Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture can help infertility in a number of ways. One of these is by helping to regulate fertility hormones such as FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Lutenising Hormone), and another is by improving the lining of the womb which increases the chances of embryo implantation. In addition to this, acupuncture has been shown to help alleviate stress which studies have shown lower the chances of getting pregnant by some 30%. Acupuncture treatment similarly helps stimulate ovulation, reduces the number of ovarian cysts and regulates the menstrual cycle in women with PCOS

Crispin has assisted couples in their goal of a successful pregnancy for many years and as a way of increasing his expertise in this field, he undertook and successfully completed the post-graduate ‘Gynaecology, Fertility and Obstetrics’ diploma at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading in 2019.


‘Crispin has a wonderfully calm, reassuring and positive manner. Whilst he was working on me, he was incredibly sensitive to the very tender parts of my body and I could feel shifts taking place in my body as Crispin worked. I felt our sessions were incredibly cathartic – it was as if pent up, negative thoughts and emotions were released.’
