“This is the best training I have undertaken in over 20 years in practice [and] will surpass anything you have studied before. The ongoing monthly CPD is varied and valuable. The practitioners support group is outstanding to deal with complex issues we all face in clinic.”
Caroline Haigh, Leeds Acupuncture
Why I created this Diploma
I know that continued professional development has transformed my practice; both in how I help my clients clinically, and in how I run my business. I also know that it is difficult for people looking for a practitioner who specialises in fertility to know the depth of the training a practitioner really has.
That’s why I launched this Diploma in 2017. Practitioners who have completed the Diploma are able to use the Fertility Support Trained logo, which is quickly becoming a recognised mark of quality that consumers across the world can rely on to know that their practitioner is trained to the highest level and is committed to continuing their development in this fast moving area of specialisation.
A new and unique approach
The Diploma is the product of my 20+ years working as a Fertility, Gynaecology and Obstetric Acupuncturist and Herbalist. It encompasses my approach to integrating Western biomedical techniques with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The Diploma also trains you in my Adaptive Approach that updates the limited TCM we are taught in college around fertility and pregnancy to really unleash the power of TCM to address all aspects of fertility and gynaecology.
“I started Naava’s course feeling fairly confident as a fertility practitioner, but I completed it feeling like I’d reached a significant new level of practice. The depth of knowledge she instills is more than worth the investment, but on top of that, you complete the course with a community of practitioners with whom you can refer to for advice and knowledge, meaning the benefits from the course continue far beyond the study sessions.”
The Advanced Level Diploma is comprised of five modules covering a total of 72 topics
Reproductive Immunology: Understanding and treating the immune system for fertility and pregnancy
The immune system gives us a lens through which to reconsider the whole body and its fertility journey, and the ability to treat clients in a way that can change the outcome when nothing else seems to be working.
Treating complex diseases of pregnancy with TCM
How to treat complicated cases presenting in pregnancy which are poorly addressed by a lot of mainstream literature, including PUPPP/PEP, abdominal pain, thrush, cystitis and maternal toxaemia.
A new TCM approach to PCOS, OHSS and other hormonal issues
How to apply my innovative new approach to using TCM to treat the toughest cases of these syndromes, alongside endometriosis, amenorrhoea, and related conditions.
Using TCM to support Artificial Reproductive Techniques
Understanding and treating all aspects of ART – preparation, execution and aftermath – including discussion of epigenetics and the enduring lifestyle and psychological implications.
Renew and reinvigorate your practice with practical marketing techniques
To have a thriving practice, one that is not just good, but great, we need to do “the inside work” on ourselves to identify our patterns, failures, pitfalls, self-sabotaging behaviour and where these come from. This module provides practical marketing techniques to give you personal and professional inspiration.
“The Diploma allowed me to transform my practice and transform my mindset! I have had my two best months ever in terms of gross income and that's in a pandemic!”
Rachel Sherriff, Oxted Acupuncture
“I really value the back up, the continued CPD, access to the hive mind, and for me, most importantly, the community that has been created. Now I am not alone in the treatment room, as I know I can ask my colleagues or Naava herself, if I have a complex case, or even just want to ask for a colleague’s opinion.”
Alex Gilmartin, The Nest Acupuncture
