Don't just take my word for it, read what people who have taken my courses say about them...


“In over 20 years of practice I have not applied course content to the level that I have been able to do following Naava’s training.”

The best advocates for the Advanced Level Diploma are its graduates

Hannah Pearn, Fertility Support Trained Acupuncturist

Hannah Pearn, London UK

This Diploma course is essential if you're working in fertility. The level of detail and information isn't available anywhere else.

I can't emphasise enough how much this came at the right time and was the right training for me to change the way I work and how I feel about it. Having the confidence in your knowledge will shine through and automatically attract more fertility clients.

For me it was revolutionary and I am very grateful. I now have a full clinic and a waiting list, can't ask for more than that!

Rachel Sherriff, Fertility Support Trained Acupuncturist

Rachel Sherriff, Surrey, UK

If you are interested in specialising in fertility acupuncture then this is the best course out there! It allows a thorough understanding of western medical techniques and allows you to be more confident in complex cases.

It 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!

I would highly recommend the Diploma to anyone looking to transform both their practice and their mindset.

Alexandra O'Connor, Fertility Support Trained Acupuncturist

Alex O'Connor, Essex, UK

The Diploma course is the singularly most empowering course I have taken and it has totally changed the way I work.

The course went way beyond my expectations with the level of detail and knowledge shared about fertility issues from a Western medicine perspective and how to relate that back to the system of Chinese medicine.

Since taking this Diploma my practice has completely changed, I now specialise in working with people struggling with long term unexplained infertility or recurrent IVF failure; for the first time I am regularly running a waiting list for spaces on my treatment table.

Ashley Flores, Chicago, IL

I have previously invested in a lot of fertility courses, and none were like this one. The Diploma offers a very different perspective on infertility and especially for more complex cases.

Reagan M. Barry, Houston, TX

I have never seen labs from a reproductive immunologist because doctors in Texas just don’t do that. But today, I finally had my first patient come in with labs from a Reproductive Immunologist from New York and I knew what they were thanks to the first module. The patient is an doctor and was really surprised and I was able to help her adjust her diet and supplements accordingly.

Janet Lee, Kansas City, MI

The diploma and especially the supporting groups Naava has created around it are helping me to discover what's holding me back in practice.

Alex O'Connor's Journey: Becoming a Fertility Expert


Caroline Haigh, Leeds, UK 

This is the best training I have undertaken in over 20 years in practice. I completed the Diploma not to attract more clients as I always have a waiting list but to ensure that I am able to offer the best service to those people I see.

This training 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.

Alex Gilmartin, Kilmarnock, UK

This Diploma course was the most challenging but also the most rewarding  piece of CPD I have undertaken in my 20 plus years in the acupuncture profession. This course isn’t about sitting looking at slides and taking notes that will be put to the side once you get home - it really does facilitate learning by teaching us to question our decision making and guides and encourages us to delve deeper, and to become our own detective.

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 during the time of training and afterwards. Now I am not alone in the treatment room, as I know I can ask my colleagues or Naava Carman herself, if I have a complex case, or even just want to ask for a colleague’s opinion. I haven’t come across this in any other fertility training.

I was about to retire as a fertility acupuncturist but this course pulled me back with renewed enthusiasm and I am still a busy practitioner 3 years later!

Laura Bicker, Fertility Support Trained Acupuncturist

Laura Bicker, Jesmond, UK

The Diploma is a great way to take your practice as a fertility-focused practitioner to the next level. You are buying much more than a training course and is well worth the investment.

This Diploma will give you the training you can't get elsewhere and access to regular CPD and support like no other course.

Taking this Diploma has helped renew some confidence I had lost being a sole practitioner.

Louise Collyer, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK

If you want to take your understanding of working with fertility to a specialist level, this is the course to do that. I am grasping the complex matters of fertility in a way I didn't feel able to before.

I had a VERY busy practice when I started this course, and doing the Diploma helped me think about HOW I want to work.  Not just numbers of patients, but quality of patients. It gave me the confidence to charge more and see less patients to work more deeply with the ones I have.

Valerie Salt, Bristol, UK

The Diploma gives you the knowledge to be confident in the treatment room when checking test results are optimal and what course of treatment is best, whether it is TCM or Western medicine or a combination. It also gives useful dietary and lifestyle advice.

The training includes research papers as well as some resources for the patients so they can feel empowered when going through fertility treatment.

The Diploma course has given me renewed focus, expert level knowledge and a network where I feel supported and can ask questions.

Julie Foley, County Kildare, Ireland

I really enjoyed the course, Naava is a great teacher, and forced her practitioners to think outside the box, she is also totally passionate about developing and enhancing practitioners skills after completion of the course.

I cannot stress enough how great Naava is as a role model to all us practitioners, she is engaging, kind, thoughtful and passionate about her work and developing her practitioners beyond completion of her course, and I’m very grateful to have had the pleasure of her teaching me.

Eleanor Davies, Glasgow, UK

The Diploma was one of the most thorough courses I’ve ever done. It covered all aspects of fertility from a TCM as well as Western medicine perspective.

The Diploma is a very high standard, teaching a way of looking at fertility by thinking out the box/book. If you want to ‘level up’ your fertility work and really make a difference to your clients complex fertility needs, this is for you!


Denise Stewart, Glasgow, UK

The Advanced Level Diploma has everything you need if you want to specialise in fertility. Excellent teaching resources and support throughout and beyond.

The Diploma is a very thorough CPD course; it deepens TCM knowledge and practice and successfully integrates TCM principles with Western Medical fertility diagnosis and treatment.

The Advanced Fertility Diploma is a good investment if you want to specialise in Acupuncture and Fertility. It covers topics and content which will help and support your fertility treatments along with access to a peer group of Diploma graduates who are very experienced and knowledgeable. As a graduate you continue to learn and integrate this knowledge into your practice with real examples of cases and situations. Graduates also have access to detailed fertility CPD which further supports learning and development.

Having taken the Diploma, I am a much more knowledgeable, confident fertility practitioner.

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.

Naava is very supportive and approachable and creates a supportive learning environment. I have benefited from ongoing support about complex fertility issues both from Naava and the network of experienced fertility acupuncturists set up as part of the group. On many occasions this has proved invaluable in clinic when a new or complex situation arises. It genuinely feels that learning continues to develop and deepen.
