Needles are inserted into specific points along the energy channels - known as meridians.

I saw Joanna when I was pregnant and overdue. My hope was to get some acupuncture to try to naturally coax labour, as well as to relax me. I’d had acupuncture elsewhere which hadn’t worked, but was so blown away by my experience with Joanna. She was so caring, diligent and really took the time on both treating me and talking me through what she was doing and offering a lot of helpful hints. I felt instantly different after our session and loved every moment. My only regret is not finding Joanna earlier! I’d definitely recommend her for anyone in pregnancy, whether it’s to relax or help encourage labour.

I would highly recommend Valeria for acupuncture for labour preparation. She is very knowledgable, kind and made herself available for sessions at short notice. I had two acupuncture sessions with Valeria at 40 weeks and 40 2 for labour preparation. Before my sessions, my labour was not progressing spontaneously and I was told that I’d need an induction to kickstart cervix dilation / labour. Within hours of my second session, my labour started naturally and I had a straightforward delivery and I believe the acupuncture was the main contributing factor. As well as the acupuncture, Valeria provided helpful advice/ exercises for me to practice at home.

I saw Marian Fixler for acupuncture throughout my pregnancy. I was new to acupuncture, and I can not imagine a better introduction. Marian's practice, her calm demeanour and her thoughtful advice on a range of topics related to pregnancy really helped me to refocus during what was otherwise a stressful period of time. She offered practical solutions (that worked!) for many of my pregnancy symptoms, including nausea, indigestion, muscle tightness and lower back pain. In addition to acupuncture, Marian introduced me to intentional tapping (to help work through some residual stress I had from my first pregnancy and delivery). I was new to the practice, but I found it incredibly helpful during my pregnancy and ended up tap tapping away during my contractions -- I think it made a real difference. In the time of COVID, I think it is also worth mentioning the space that Marian has created at Shine. The whole team at Shine follows very careful protocols, and Marian's top floor space benefits from beautiful natural light from large windows. Despite the Church Street location, the room is quiet and peaceful and during our sessions I enjoyed hearing the movement of the trees in Abney Park. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Marian and Shine. I look forward to working with her going forward.

Valeria's Client
I had the privilege to be treated by Valeria for 2 years. From the moment we met I knew I had luckily stumbled upon the most knowledgeable, kind, considerate acupuncturist - who is not only an expert in her own field but in the world of fertility in general. Valeria has helped me navigate the complex world of fertility and without her I would still be lost. She has supported me and helped me get through several miscarriages, including a molar pregnancy, and a complicated IVF cycle. The result: a beautiful baby boy, who would not be here if it was not for Valeria's help: her excellent treatment, her unfaltering support, and her endless guidance. Thank you Valeria.
We are so glad to hear this. Thank you for taking the time to write these encouraging words. We are so happy Valeria is at Shine and was able to help you.

Dr. Pippa Graham.
I have PCOS and therefore experienced subfertility. Valeria was recommended by many people and I understand why. Through carefully researched practice, a great deal of experience as well as patience, she gave me confidence, hope and ultimately brought on my periods again which led to the conception of my son. As well as enjoying the thoroughness of Valeria's sessions, both through discussion and practice, she also followed up with relevant research articles which I found particularly valuable. I will be eternally grateful to Valeria for supporting me through a very difficult time in my life. I would recommend her to anyone (and already have!)

I benefited hugely from Valeria's input whilst going through IVF treatment for my 2 children. She is extremely knowledgeable and conscientious in her approach. Valeria's weekly session provided me with space where I could truly 'let go'. When undergoing IVF it was important for me to really trust the advice I was being given - with Valeria I felt confident in all that she offered.

Can’t recommend Marian Fixler enough! I have received acupuncture from her to help me cope with a difficult time in my life and she has helped me unbelievable amounts! She also ran a group tapping session which was really powerful and gave me a tool to use daily to cope with general anxiety. Will definitely continue to see her!
Thanks Felicity, will pass on your kind words
