After trying for a second baby for over a year I went to see Ali following a friend’s recommendation. Ali was very thorough from the get go, wanting to ensure she understood everything that was happening from a body and a life point of view. After approx six months of trying to regulate my periods and reduce my stress levels, we got to the stage where they were regular and operating how they should be. However, we knew falling pregnant naturally would be a challenge as I have a very low AMH.
Myself and my husband knew that if we wanted to do IVF we would have to do it as quickly as possible because we knew the success rate would always be on the low side due to my egg quantity. We decided to go for IVF as soon as the first lockdown was lifted. I visited Ali once a week in the three months leading up to IVF to ensure my body was ready. Ali was fabulous during the IVF process, a constant positive attitude but also so flexible. One example of this is on implantation day I had to be at the clinic super early. Ali was more than happy to see me ahead of her clinic times to ensure I could have the treatment. I have no doubt that Ali’s nature and flexibility helped our IVF process.
I’m very pleased to say that despite only collecting three eggs and two being implanted, we now have a healthy baby girl who was born last week.
I honestly couldn’t recommend Ali enough. Her treatment, her personality, her calming nature, her positive mindset – I truly believe all of this helped me be in the right frame of mind for IVF and for having our little girl.
Ali – we will forever be grateful for you, your way of being, your calming influence and your understanding
I went to see Aliya initially as my periods had stopped and I had been diagnosed with PCOS. I also wanted to start trying for a baby in the next few months. I found my first session with Aliya so enlightening. She is so easy to talk to, intuitive and supportive. After a couple of acupuncture sessions my period returned. I fell pregnant the following month and am expecting my first baby in June. I fully believe that this was due to my sessions with Aliya, which I have continued through my pregnancy as I have found such a benefit from acupuncture. I have since recommended Aliya to a number of my friends and family.
Came to see Ali for 3 months before my current IVF cycle and found it to help so much, made me a lot more relaxed during the whole process! Now currently 20 weeks and have just gone back today for another treatment for headaches. Feel better already 🙂
I first saw Aliya in September 2020 as I was suffering the after effects of a virus which had resulted in an inflammatory disorder. I was suffering lots of pain as well as having menopausal symptoms and general low mood. After just one session I felt I had got my “mojo” back, and was more productive with increased energy levels, and I was able to channelling more positive thoughts. The second visit consolidated everything and I definitely going to incorporate regular visits to Aliya as part of my self care. She has a lovely energy about her and I highly recommend her practice
Ali is positive, cheery and intuitive and her wide ranging modalities that come under the umbrella of acupuncture create a fully rounded and very nurturing practice. I was in such pain when I first went to see her, with herniated discs and lots of referred pain and sleep deprivation. She really holds space for healing to occur and to soothe and treat in a really beautiful and patient centred way. I’ll always recommend her!
Having had many sleepless nights with dreadful back ache, I can honestly say that after just one visit to see Ali at the Meridian Clinic its been miraculous, I have had a pain free night and day, my only regret is that I didn’t go to see Ali sooner. I’ve promised myself after my next treatment this week I’m going to make a booking for every three months just as maintenance. This is the second time Ali has treated my back and I can highly recommend her acupuncture treatment, its brilliant.
After months of severe Heel pain and 5 courses of antibiotics for two misdiagnosed conditions, I contacted Meridian Acupuncture who correctly diagnosed Plantar Fasciatis. Following just one session of Acupuncture treatment, and massage with oils and correct advice, my heel is so much better I can now walk of properly. Many thanks
(My wife Denise is so much better she can’t believe it, we are now on with looking for the supportive shoes. Thank you very much we are so very great full.🤗🤗🤗 DB &CHB).
I was sceptical of acupuncture but a family member highly recommended Aliya to help with depression, anxiety and stress. I wasn’t expecting immediate results but was surprised I felt lighter and happier after my first treatment. I have since had 5 further treatments and can only sing Aliya’s praises. She truly is amazing at what she does. My mood is generally a lot more happier and my relationship with my family has improved significantly. I have recommended Aliya to other family members who have also been impressed by the quality of her work. Aliya is real credit to the profession and I would highly recommend her.
I’ve suffered with muscular pain from my hip right down to the base of my foot. I have so far had three sessions and I can already feel a big improvement. Highly recommend.
We cannot recommend Aliya enough! She is warm, attentive and so supportive as a therapist. She really cares about all of her patients and tries everything she can to help them on their journey. Acupuncture was recommended to me after an ectopic pregnancy, followed quickly by two miscarriages. It was such a difficult time in our lives. I hadn’t really done anything like that before, but was ready to try something new. Aliya really helped to keep me calm and give us hope! She talked to me before every session and went on to chat to my Husband who always supported me by coming to the waiting room. The Acupuncture was gentle and gave us a sense of relief after each session – it really helped to keep us going! I continued to see Aliya all the way through my pregnancy, just before having our beautiful baby girl. I feel like she was there by my side, every step of the way. I truly believe Aliya helped to make our dreams come true!
