Acupuncture to tackle fertility problems.

Byline: Mike Malyon Nuneaton reporter

ACUPUNCTURE could prove to be the key for women who are having problems becoming pregnant - and help is at hand via local expert Lois Francis.

Using the ancient technique, she has been treating patients with fertility issues for more than a decade from her clinics in Coventry and Nuneaton.

"It is all about bringing down stress levels, which can be achieved through acupuncture," said Lois.

"Diet and other health issues are also important, especially for woman having IVF treatment.

"I can work with them through their cycles and although there is no guarantee of them becoming pregnant, I am proud of achieving a high rate of success." Lois, 64, has been practising acupuncture for 18 years and is the author of two books Getting Pregnant Improve Your Fertility and Chances of IVF Success and Eating to Get Pregnant.

She is also a recognised provider for Midland Fertility Clinic, which was opened in 1987 and has seen more than 6,000 babies born through IVF treatment.

"I find that many of my patients are told they have unexplained infertility and they don't know what to do to help themselves," said Lois.

"As well as using acupuncture on their pressure points, I also give them support, information and advice.

"It's always a joy when a patient comes in with a positive pregnancy test and I feel that I've helped to make it happen, even if only in a small way."

Lois runs her business alongside husband Tim Metford, who is a qualified physiotherapist, and is available for appointments at her clinics in Finham and Nuneaton town centre by contacting 024 7634 3100.
