    In May 2014, my oldest friend gave me the best piece of advice I've ever had - 'why don't you try acupuncture? I know lots of people who have given it a go when trying to conceive and raved about it'. I'd not had a period for two-and-a-half years, so the 'task' of getting pregnant was far from easy. After continued frustrations with my GP's approach, I thought 'what have I got to lose?'. I came to see Annie later that month and from that moment on my life was transformed. In the space of a month, my period had started again; within seven months I was pregnant with my first child. Fifteen months after walking into Annie's treatment room for the first time, my husband and I now have a beautiful and precious baby girl - and we owe more than we could possibly express to Annie for the greatest gift ever. Her skill, knowledge, understanding, compassion and support guided us along an unforgettable journey. Not only did she treat a physical problem, but she listened intently during every session so that each treatment was bespoke to my needs that week. From pre-conception right through to week 40, Annie was there helping me to nurture, protect and prepare me for labour. I can never thank her enough for what she has done for us and I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone. She is one in a million. E.W. 2015

    'I first came to see Annie in November 2015 when I was going through one of the most difficult times of my life - I was struggling to conceive & had done the first month of being on the fertility drug clomid without success. I say struggling to conceive, but it was much more than this, my husband & I had been trying for years & tests had revealed I wasn't ovulating and one of my follipian tubes was damaged from emergency surgery. Additionally, I have Crohn's disease and was having a flare up & was also struggling with the stress of my job as a solicitor. I was convinced I was destined never to have my own baby and had started looking into the possibility of adoption.

    A family member who had recently conceived through IVF recommended that I should try acupuncture as she believed it had helped her conceive on her second round of IVF (not having had it on the first round & failing to conceive).

    I started seeing Annie weekly & I felt the benefits of acupuncture straight away. I felt much more relaxed and positive about things and I also started feeling healthier and that my crohns was going back into remission (enabling me to focus on conceiving). Annie also used moxa in the sessions which I feel was of great benefit. Along with the actual acupuncture sessions, Annie discussed and advised on the menstrual cycle in Chinese medicine along with the importance of food in terms of blood building etc. I took all of this advice on board & adapted my diet accordingly.

    On the 31st March 2016, I was a few days late for my period ... i decided to take a pregnancy test, not wanting to get my hopes up after years of being dissapointed. I couldn't quite believe it when the test was positive! We were having the baby we had always longed for and only 4 months after starting acupuncture sessions and without having to undergo IVF!

    I was initially nervous about the pregnancy, as I was scared something would happen to the baby we wanted so much, so it was only natural that I would continue with my acupuncture sessions with Annie, which I continued throughout my pregnancy.

    The benefits of the acupuncture sessions were enormous - from helping to relieve morning sickness, acid indigestion & pelvic girdle pain to reducing anxiety & stress and helping me sleep better. My Crohn's disease was also kept at bay and I felt great.

    I had a healthy pregancy as a result and on the 12th December 2016 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.

    I believe that I would not have conceived or had a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby without acupuncture. The effects and benefits are amazing & my husband and I cannot thank Annie enough for everything she has done for us; our baby girl is perfect in every way and we wouldn't have her now without acupuncture & Annie.


    'I began acupuncture with Annie after trying to conceive naturally for a couple of months. I read an article suggesting that acupuncture helped with conception. I spoke to Annie and instantly I felt at ease with her, and was impressed by her friendly manner and knowledge of her subject matter.
    During our sessions, my initial impressions of Annie proved to be true. I looked forward to our sessions and acupuncture had a positive affect on my overall health and state of mind. After attending the sessions for a couple of months, I felt was able to handle stress better both with regard to trying for a baby and work!
    I started my treatment with Annie in December 2012 and fell pregnant in February 2013. I am continuing to see Annie all through my pregnancy. I am convinced that without Annie's help this would not have happened - I would recommended Annie to friends and family, and would not hesitate to continue to do so in the future.'

    'I've been lucky enough to work with Annie Walker for the last 8 months and can't praise her highly enough. I was originally referred to her as we had been trying to conceive for over 2 years unsuccessfully and it had been suggested that as there was no obvious physical reason we hadn't been successful, Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture may be beneficial.
    From the outset, Annie's lovely warmth and caring approach meant I trusted her and the care and attention she took with every aspect of my treatment and every part of my overall wellbeing, was unlike anyone I had ever worked with before. Her passion for what she does and her diligence in ensuring her patients experience the best possible outcomes is truly inspiring. She goes above and beyond in every treatment and has been such a huge support to me through some of the most difficult and challenging times of my life.
    As a result of Annie's treatments, I'm delighted to say I am now 14 weeks pregnant! Not only was Annie's help in getting here phenomenal but since becoming pregnant I've had quite bad morning sickness and Annie's continued care and regular treatments have made it so much better... She is an amazing lady and someone I feel truly lucky to have had the opportunity to work
    with. (Cheshire, March 2014)
