HSFC offers acupuncture treatments with Maria Rossi, who has extensive experience in traditional acupuncture.


Their practice of acupuncture is founded on the belief that the secret to a successful life — especially when creating a new one — lies in balancing our bodies so that fertile ground can be created. This may involve removing blocks that make conception difficult.

Think of your body as a garden. Before planting anything, we first clear any debris and prepare the soil, making it rich and fertile so that tiny seeds can implant, receive nourishment and grow.

Just as a beautiful garden needs suitable conditions and care, we believe it is important to create similar foundations in our bodies to enable life to develop.

The Role of Acupuncture

We believe acupuncture can help support you during your fertility journey.

Many apparently irrelevant factors may cause infertility.

Stress is a key factor and this can become self-perpetuating when conception repeatedly fails to happen. Medication (e.g. for depression, epilepsy) taken for unrelated purposes can affect fertility; catching a simple cold may even affect ovulation. Used as a holistic therapy, acupuncture can help address various health issues at the same time, issues that may be disrupting your body’s natural balance and creating a state of infertility.

So we advise that you treat research data as guidance only, even when it supports the case for acupuncture. The expertise and wide-ranging medical experience of the practitioner you choose, and your confidence in their approach, is vital.

  • Acupuncture can help you to get pregnant naturally. Fertility focused acupuncture treatment can help you cope with the associated stress and help with your overall well being. In turn this may help balance hormone levels and improve your fertility.
  • Acupuncture supports IVF. Using acupuncture around the time of embryo transfer will improve your overall well being and in turn may give you a better chance of a successful outcome.
  • Using acupuncture during your pregnancy may also help to treat related issues such as morning sickness, heartburn, muscular aches and so on.
