About me


Martha Poulou - acupunctureI graduated from the University of Westminster with a First Class Honours Degree in Acupuncture and received a full scholarship to complete a postgraduate clinical placement at the China Medical University of Taichung in Taiwan. I continued my studies with a number of different physicians and scholars and I have extensive clinical experience in a number of different conditions such as musculoskeletal pain and injuries, management of chronic pain, digestive disorders as well as emotional and sleeping disorders.

From the early years of practice I became interested in fertility and women’s heath and I have undertaken post-graduate training in the treatment of gynaecological conditions, including menstrual disorders, male and female infertility and IVF assistance, both in the UK and in Taiwan. I am a member of the fertility support team at the London Acupuncture Clinic and have worked alongside western medical teams in a number of fertility units in London and Surrey. Having supported hundreds of couples during their journey to conception, I continued with post-graduate training in obstetric acupuncture and am now passionate about supporting women during their pregnancy as well as during childbirth and post-partum recovery. 

The aim of my practice is to put all the pieces of your medical history together, help you understand what is happening in your body and provide patient centred, individualised care.
My treatments are always performed with compassion and respect to your body and mind. Embarking on a treatment plan with me, you will be educated about aspects of your life that could potentially affect your health or well being. You will be equipped with tangible tools and strategies and guided through a journey of self-care to promote your heath and self-healing.
