I feel very lucky to have helped people in various ways over the years. please see below some of the genuine testimonials I have been sent
After suffering a previous miscarriage I was incredibly anxious whilst ttc, by the eighth month of trying I was beginning to think something may be wrong so I looked into ways that may help. That was when I came across Mark and decided to give acupuncture a try, it was one of the best decisions I have made. Within the first month I fell pregnant and now have a wonderful little boy.
Mark was so wonderful and made me feel at ease as I was nervous of experiencing another miscarriage, each session was specific to where I was within my cycle and how far I was within pregnancy. I now highly recommend acupuncture and Mark to any friends trying to conceive and will definitely be visiting Mark for baby number 2!
Mark has been brilliant in helping my wife and I on our journey to having a family. He's always been a very welcoming and calming force after a long drive from Ipswich, and I definitely feel that the acupuncture itself has had a positive effect on both my fertility and has helped with anxiety also. Mark is a calm and positive professional who I would thoroughly recommend.
“We used Mark Riley when we began fertility treatment at Simply Fertility, in Chelmsford. From the very first appointment it was clear that Mark takes great pride in his work, and his caring nature continued throughout our treatment. For our first (and very fortunately only cycle) Mark was flexible in his approach, providing care on a Sunday morning before my journey to London for treatment, and also afterwards later that same day, which complemented the weekly treatments that I had had in the run up to our egg retrieval.
We were very fortunate to get pregnant on our first cycle, and Mark continued treating me for the next 5 months, supporting my pregnancy both physically, but also my mental state throughout the treatment with acupuncture. The sessions are both therapeutic and beneficial, aiming to relax the patient as well as providing key pregnancy support to the body. He is personable, warm and his sessions are kept at an affordable cost, allowing his treatment to run concurrently with that provided by Simply Fertility. We are in no doubt that the acupuncture played a key part in the process, and our beautiful daughter was born in October this year.
I would not hesitate to recommend both Mark, and acupuncture to anyone considering fertility treatment.”
'Thank you for your help with our third round of IVF Mark which has resulted in a healthy baby boy, we are so very grateful'
'Not sure how it works Mark but I don't know how I would have gotten by with my back pain without your help.'
I have just finished a acupuncture course of with Mark which was to assist with our ICSI treatment at Simply Fertility. I was nervous to begin with about what to expect but Mark’s caring, personable approach put me at ease straight away.
I have found the treatment that Mark has provided me with, which have included relaxed chats about how things are going and helpful advice as well as the acupuncture itself, invaluable and would not hesitate to recommended this to anyone, in fact I would go as far as saying that in my opinion this should be something that goes hand in hand with IVF treatment due to the success rates and the calming effect that it has had on me.
I am delighted to say that my ICSI worked first time round and I cannot thank Mark enough for all of the support that he has given me throughout this process. I continued to see Mark post procedure for acupuncture to help keep me relaxed and ensure that things continued smoothly through the first trimester. I will not think twice about going back if I feel that I need any help with stress and relaxation in the future.
I saw Mark for around a year whilst I was having my treatment for ICSI/IVF. I found that Mark was very professional, friendly, and informed in the type of treatment I was having and the type of acupuncture I therefore needed to suit that treatment. I was blessed to be successful in my IVF treatment first time. I do strongly believe that my acupuncture treatment had contributed to that success. After my treatments I was always very relaxed, relieved of stress. I continued with my treatment from 2 months before implantation until the birth of my beautiful daughter. I would highly recommend Acupuncture and Mark.
