Hi I’m Hannah
I’m a fertility acupuncturist and passionate educator, running a busy clinic and creating online information and practical advice for everybody who is TTC.
We’ve all been told how not to get pregnant but when the switch is flipped and we want to start a family it can be confusing, sometimes overwhelming and hard to know where to go for support and advice.
You may be just thinking about coming off contraception or be considering IVF, whatever stage you’re at, my role is to help you feel knowledgable and empowered to advocate for yourself and know what options are available. And if you’re coming to clinic we will work together, getting you in the best possible health physically and emotionally while you’re TTC naturally or through IVF.
I’m an Advanced Fertility Practitioner, so have a thorough understanding of both Western and Chinese Medical approaches to fertility, both for natural and assisted conception. I have certificate in Counselling Skills and Practice from Birkbeck University and am a Trained Teacher in Natural Fertility Education. This means I can teach women how to confidently track their menstrual cycle and ovulation window, thus improving their chances of conceiving naturally.
I’m a northerner living in exile in Streatham. I have a partner, 3 children, a dog and a tortoise. I am a lover of food, plants (you’ll see when you come to clinic!) jumpsuits and the colour yellow. I’m always doing some form of activity, it keeps me sane and generally well and I love to enter events and then moan a lot about doing it. I’m rubbish at yoga and can’t touch my toes but I try really hard to carry on in the vain hope that one day I’ll get there.
Working together is so much more than needles. It’s about sharing information, suggesting different approaches and supporting you in all the ways I can. My clinic space offers a chance to talk, be heard and a place to relax. My online work aims to make my knowledge and experience accessible to as many people as possible, providing practical and helpful information. I want everybody to feel empowered with knowledge about their fertility when they’re TTC.
Hi I’m Chloe
I’m a fully qualified acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine practitioner with a real passion for women’s health and fertility.
I originally tried acupuncture as a last resort to resolve my own women’s health symptoms, and I ended up falling in love with it so much that I decided to study it myself. I spent three years at London South Bank University gaining a Bachelor of Science specialising in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, and was delighted to graduate with First Class Honours after completing my final dissertation on PCOS, endometriosis, and secondary amenorrhoea.
I also studied Western medical theory, so I can support any diagnosis you have received or treatment you are undertaking. I take a balanced view and believe there is a place for both approaches in our lives.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council, and in addition to meeting strict regulatory standards, I am always continuing to perfect my craft. Amongst several other courses, I am undertaking a year-long Postgraduate Diploma in Gynaecology, Fertility and Obstetrics at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine and I will soon also be completing the Advanced Level Diploma in Fertility Acupuncture.
I love to create collaborative relationships with my clients, act as a pilar of support, help them learn more about their clever bodies, and arm them with a load of lifestyle advice so that they can continue the work between sessions and into the future. I have naturally focussed on women’s health and fertility throughout my studies and ever since when treating in my own London clinics, and I am now thrilled to be able to work with Hannah to help as many of you TTC as I can.
I live in London and work in a busy corporate role throughout the week, which means I completely understand the modern lifestyle demands we all face and I’m therefore very practical in my approach. Outside of hours (and all the additional study I sign myself up to!) you will find me doing yoga, drinking coffee, procrasti-baking, finding dogs to pat, and going for long walks around London.
Hi I’m Anga
I am a Chinese Medicine Practitioner specialising in Human Reproduction and Fertility, Women’s and Pediatric Health. I hold a California license and a membership at the British Register of Complementary Practitioners.
After I finished my BS in Nutrition at UC Berkeley, I wanted to explore the relationship between herbal medicine and food a bit deeper. I decided to go to Chinese Medicine School at PCOM in San Diego. While in the program I collaborated with midwives as a doula for the UCSD Hillcrest Hospital, with doctors in San Diego Hospice and the Children’s Hospital, as well as in various fertility centers.
My qualifications include
BSc in Nutrition and Physiotherapy
Master in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego
Master in Chinese Medicine in Women’s Health from Shandong University
Arvigo Mayan Massage (fertility massage) therapist
And I’m currently taking the Advanced Fertility Diploma
I have worked in many IVF clinics, donation or adoption Centers and Fertility Clinics in California, London and Barcelona. My skills include Acupuncture, doula duties, Fertility massage and herbs.
When I am not in clinical practice or reading, you can find me backpacking, camping, ocean swimming/kayaking or gardening.
