Uby Muñoz is a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist and Doula who specialises in natural fertility and women’s health. In 2009, she founded the Barcelona Well Woman Centre, a multidisciplinary centre that offers a wide array of holistic health services to both women and families.
With over 22 years of clinical experience, Uby uses acupuncture to help patients suffering from muscular and joint pains, migraines, problems with digestion and circulation systems, allergies and emotional imbalances as well as helping those who wish to maintain and promote health as a way of preventing illness. She employs a holistic approach that not only treats illness, but also helps women make choices in their lives to prevent disease.
Natural fertility & acupuncture
Uby has a special interest and experience in using acupuncture to promote pregnancy, childbirth and fertility including IVF enhancement and supporting assisted conception techniques. She has had specialised training in fertility and obstetrics and is a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network.
She works with couples providing natural fertility enhancement through acupuncture, nutrition, massage and lifestyle interventions. She looks at your reproductive system in relation to all the other systems of your body, and is able to tailor your treatment specifically to your individual diagnosis.
IVF treatment & acupuncture
Uby is well-versed in conventional treatment of infertility and works hand-in-hand with reproductive clinics in Barcelona to support couples who have chosen to undergo IVF and other ART to meet their fertility objectives. She combines evidence-based research protocols, western medical diagnostics, fertility acupuncture – and the accumulated knowledge of nearly 3000 years of Traditional Chinese Medicine – to bring the best of both worlds to help her patients fulfill their dream of starting a family.
Pregnancy & acupuncture
Pregnancy is a special time, a period of great transition that is full of joy and expectancy but that can also be a time of worry and anxiety when complications arise, as they sometimes do. Acupuncture is a safe and effective form of health-care used to alleviate many of the physical discomforts experienced during pregnancy. Acupuncture can also help new mums prepare their body, mind and emotional self so they are as ready as possible for the birth of their baby and for an efficient post-natal recovery.
“In Traditional Chinese Medicine we treat the whole patient, considering the root causes affecting a patient’s reproductive wellness and their overall wellbeing. Chinese medicine gives me the tools to diagnosis each patient’s unique pattern of imbalance and to work with them to correct those imbalances and foster true healing of the mind, body and spirit.”
