thanks for those links, misi - i've had a quick look but will read them properly this evening. I only wondered about accupuncture because i know it can be used to reduce stress. also, i'm hoping to start ttc soonish and i know accupuncture is ok then. and because the lady who did my accupuncture when i was pg was so lovely and helpful!
I think you can ask questions and find accredited practitioners on this site, the important thing though is to look around and do what is best for you, although I assume that the accupuncture can be done in conjunction with my previous thoughts if you wanted too
