Valerie Salt - Acupuncturist in Bristol

Acupuncture clinics based in Horfield, Bristol BS7, and Bishopston, Bristol BS7 serving the areas of Horfield, Bishopston, Henleaze, Westbury-on-Trym, Clifton, Stoke Bishop, Cotham, Southmead and St George in Bristol.

In my 4 month “Fertility Boost" package, I help women and couples in their 30s and 40s who are trying to conceive and are feeling stuck, lost and like they’re failing each month, to get clarity and optimise their fertility so they can fall pregnant and enjoy the journey feeling understood, supported and empowered.

Working together over three months, I provide and deliver an acupuncture treatment plan and advice based on their Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis that quickly boosts their fertility. In addition, I show them how to make simple, positive lifestyle changes to maximise their chances of conception, provide them with dietary and supplement recommendations, carry out tests and make referrals to effectively resolve underlying issues, give them the skills to get the most from other medical professionals, provide them with the tools to take control of their menstrual health for good, and act as an emotional support and guide for them through the process so they never feel confused or alone.

I am a Fertility Support Trained Acupuncturist with advanced, ongoing levels of training in fertility, hormone health, pregnancy and the immune system. My approach is based on the most recent research and medical techniques – and is further supported by my community of fertility experts. We regularly discuss case studies and bring our combined knowledge together for the benefit of all of our clients.

I have worked with 100s of fertility clients and know when a treatment plan is going to work. This does take commitment from the woman or couple. Yet the combination of simple lifestyle changes and a course of acupuncture leads to transformative results within 4 months of working together for my clients. Including, reducing or completely resolving menstrual pain and PMT, doubling follicle numbers and number of eggs collected during IVF, clearing hormonal headaches and migraines, and more balanced energy levels. Although it does vary, my clients typically conceive after three months of treatment, with some falling pregnant on their first cycle. Where there is no pregnancy after six months and all relevant tests have been done, I may recommend considering IVF and am able to guide clients through that process.

While I provide you with recommendations based on my knowledge, experience and expertise, you make the final decision on your treatment. I will always support you in your choices.
