I am a renowned expert in the field of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the UK with over 22 years of clinical experience. Even before finishing my five year, full time medical degree in China, my dissertation was published in a leading peer review medical journal.
I have published two books in three languages that deal with fertility. The first was My Fertility Guide – How to Get Pregnant Naturally, and the second was My Pregnancy Guide – Ensuring a Healthy Pregnancy and Labour.
I have been a called upon for expert opinion by The Telegraph, Men’s Fitness, Glamour, My Weekly, Fertility Road, Victoria Health, My Baba, Female First, TRAIN and more.
I am passionate about acupuncture and Chinese medicine, the awareness it gives me and how I can use that to show people how to improve their health. I use fine needles to make it as painless as possible.
I blend ancient theories of Chinese medicine with modern and alternative medicine to give a deep insight into illness and disharmony within my clinical practice. I then use several complementary medicine treatment strategies to tackle the problem allowing for a quicker recovery.
I believe it’s important to explain to people what’s going on with them and the disharmony they have, as it empowers them. This allows us to work consciously together to improve health.

Dr Attilio has helped me during my first IVF cycle and I got pregnant with twins! He has been very understanding, accommodating and professional.
