THE BEST OF LONDON'S THERAPISTS
By Alice Hart-Davis and Gita Mendis 08.05.01
The ancient chinese art of sticking very fine needles into precise points along the body's meridians, or energy channels, to treat disease and maintain health.
Not as painful as it sounds, and good for almost anything chronic, from skin problems, via migraines and digestive problems, to insomnia.

Pierre-Jean Cousin: acupuncture
The tall, grey-haired, bespectacled Frenchman has a reassuringly competent manner and a no-nonsense approach to treatment. That's just as well, since clients include some pernickety members of the Royal Family.
''He's rather sardonic and French,'' reports one patient. ''If you say 'Ow' when he sticks in a needle, he shrugs and says, 'But I can feel nothing.'''

Of all the alternative therapies,
has been shown in controlled scientific studies to be effective in helping treat male and female infertility problems. Acupuncture
has, of course, traditionally been successfully employed in China to treat most illnesses, but , in recent years, there have been several interesting controlled scientific studies demonstrating the clinical value of acupuncture for both male and female infertility problems.
Using only acupuncture,
and homeopathy I treat a wide spectrum of conditions, including endometriosis,
, “unexplained” or “secondary” infertility,’ and male fertility issues.
I can also help increase the chances of success at IVF/IUI as well as offering support to women during pregnancy and childbirth.
I have 30 years experience in the treatment fertility, and all the conditions associated with pregnancy and afterbirth
My two children were born naturally with the help of acupuncture and homeopathy
In many cases, I treated women who had difficulties conceiving; after a course of treatment, they became pregnant.
When these ladies wanted an other child, they again had problems.
After a second course of treatment, they became pregnant a second time.
