IVF & Fertility
I have a particular interest in working in the field of fertility and this is now a big part of my practice. Many of my patients come for support through IVF, IUI and ICSI, whilst others come simply for support whilst trying to conceive naturally and for continued support during their pregnancy.
Working alongside the Simply Fertility clinic in Little Baddow has been very rewarding and I am seeing a lot of successful outcomes, I am always happy to see you for a free consultation to talk through how acupuncture may be able to assist you.
I am ideally placed to see people from the Rochford, Rayleigh, Hockley, Southend areas and beyond.
Here's a short video explaining how acupuncture can aid IVF.
Since the early nineties, studies around the globe have suggested that treating depression and Anxiety with acupuncture has a positive and holistic effect on patients.
Stress, Anxiety and depression in its varying forms can become debilitating, and make everyday life hard to cope with, as an acupuncturist I can help to ease the many symptoms and feelings that present themselves.
Pain & Injury
I see many people in my daily practice with a wide range of pain related conditions, Acupuncture can provide some startling results often very quickly, problems ranging from back pain to migraine and much more can be helped, the procedure is virtually painless and most people find it very relaxing.
In my practice where appropriate the acupuncture treatment is combined with cupping,
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; This mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using heat (fire) or mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps). The effects of acupuncture and cupping can be very effective.
It's not uncommon for people to walk out of my practice significantly better strait away!
“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.”
