The pre-embryo transfer treatment

 

Watching this treatment you will see Amy chooses acupuncture points based on research protocols and those indicated by the patients own constitution and circumstances. The points are on meridians that encourage good circulation of Qi and Blood through the pelvic area. And calm the mind.

 

The post embryo transfer treatment

Acupuncture points we use in the treatment you can watch here, after the embryo transfer are different to those used before. No abdomen points are used now, only those that will soothe the body and mind, reduce any cramping and encourage a relaxed and receptive state.
