About Me

Melanie Hackwell, BSc (Hons) Lic. AC., Lic. Tui na, MBAcC, AFN, MRTCM

Based in Streatham Hill and Clapham, Southwest London and Bethnal Green, East London, I have long been a follower and advocate of holistic therapies. Having used acupuncturure to assist with fertility, I began studying Traditional Chinese Medicine after the birth of my second child and obtained a Certificate in Chinese Medicine through the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and a first class BSc in Acupuncture with the University of East London. During that time, I also completed my Diploma in Tui Na Massage and studied in Nanjing China, completing a Clinical Practice Course in Acupuncture.  I have also studied with the world-renowned Virginia Doran, obtaining a qualification in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and Facial Massage.

I have completed extensive post graduate training focusing on Fertility, and have completed an Advanced Fertility Diploma, encompassing Assisted Reproductive Technology, Reproductive Immunology, PCOS and Endometriosis.

My main focus includes all aspects of fertility, such as IVF preparation, conditions causing infertility such as PCOS, endometriosis & sub-fertility issues relating to both partners and couple's sessions are offered on Saturdays.

I am there to accompany and support you from the beginning to the end of your journey. Having been through this situation myself, I am well aware of the need for guidance during this time. I am well versed on all aspects of fertility - from analysing BBT charts to interpreting medical test results, ordering and analysing vaginal microbiome results. I have extensive knowledge of the IVF process including drug protocols and a good knowledge of London Fertility Clinics and their specialties.

I also have a wide network of contacts, should you need fertility nutritionists, endocrinologists, andrologists, reflexologists and hypnotherapists.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council, Acupuncture Fertility Network, The British Fertility Society and the UK Register of Tui Na Chinese Massage.
