I am a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist and Doula with 22 years of clinical experience. I specialize in natural fertility and women’s health.
I also use 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. I employ a holistic approach that not only treats illness, but also helps women make choices in their lives to prevent disease.
“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.”
I qualified as an acupuncturist in 2000 at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, the largest institution of its kind in the UK, where I completed an intensive and comprehensive 3½ year training, studying both western and Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have been studying Chinese Medicine since 1977, and have been practising Shiatsu since graduating from the British School of Shiatsu-Do in 1984.
I have taught at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and the School of Five Elements Acupuncture in addition to my acupuncture and shiatsu practices. I am a registered member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the professional body for acupuncturists in the UK, which carries with it a strict code of ethics and professional conduct.
As with all the clinic’s practitioners, Uby is firmly committed to her professional development in order to ensure that she brings the most up-to-date and broad spectrum of knowledge to her clients.

I saw Uby for acupuncture to help with fertility and I am glad to say that after 5 months of treatment, I got pregnant. I found Uby very kind, patient, caring and committed and would definitely recommend her.
Uby was "MY SAVIOUR" for the 25 years that I saw her in London. She was always there for me whenever needed (which was often) and always managed to keep my body and my mind in balance despite the turbulent often desperate times of my life- for which I am very grateful.
I went to see Uby for fertility treatments about 7 months after having had a miscarriage. I felt it was taking a while to conceive again and I was also concerned about the possibility of a second miscarriage. I had heard acupuncture could help with both conception and maintaining a healthy pregnancy so I decided to try it. Uby was great. She explained everything to me and her calming nature immediately put me at ease. I started to see her once a week. Within four weeks, I was pregnant!
With her wonderful knowledge of the body, her gentle, reassuring touch as she performs acupuncture and acupressure, Uby has been a powerful force in my recovery from breast cancer and a reassuring figure in my life. And after I recovered from breast cancer and with her encouragement and under her watchful eye, I continued with acupuncture during my pregnancy… giving birth to a healthy baby girl. Many thanks for making the time to see me at such short notice a few weeks ago. It was lovely to meet you and I found your treatment and techniques very relaxing and positive.
Uby, words are not enough to express our deep gratitude for all what you have done to help us to have a healthy little boy. It took exactly eight months for us to conceive since we started seeing you for treatments and following your lifestyle advice. Not only did you enable me to conceive but you were also such a tremendous help during my pregnancy when I was having morning sickness (if it wasn’t for you, I think I may never have eaten again!). I was so relieved to be able to have the natural birth that I very much hoped for thanks to your moxibustion treatment that turned little Lucas out of his breech position and facing the right way and your loving support during labour enabled me to enjoy the most tremendous experience I ever known. Uby, you will always be in our hearts and have our eternal recognition of your kindness and generosity.
I would definitely recommend Uby for anyone trying for a baby. We had been trying for nearly a year and were becoming quite stressed with the process of ´trying´. On our first visit with Uby she gave us some great advice and helped me feel much more relaxed. After less than two months of weekly treatments with Uby, I fell pregnant. I am just about to start the fifth month of my pregnancy. With her treatments she helped me relax and helped my body achieve the natural process of conception. Thank you Uby!
At the beginning of November 2009 I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. I was in much pain and there were days were I could barely move. I decided to find an acupuncturist for treatment. I had acupuncture in the past for chronic fatigue syndrome and was always amazed by how well I responded to it. This is how I found Uby Muñoz and the Well Woman Clinic. Under Uby's gentle recommendations, I decided to see a counselor who also worked at the clinic. I related well to the acupuncturist's belief that illness often has an emotional pain attached to it and coming from an physically abusive background I felt I would benefit from seeing a counselor. I had tried EFT (emotional freedom technique) alone but found an overwhelming amount of memories surfacing and I was unable to deal with them alone. I decided to see Katharina Seidler, a counselor who was also based at the clinic and who practiced the Body Code, another body-energetic method. Together we faced some incredibly difficult and painful memories which I had never recognised, faced or spoken about before and I was also amazed at how the procedure located the source of the pain so accurately. The experience was a release for me and in the safe environment of a practitioner present I felt supported and able to cope with the flood of painful emotions which arose. I have only had one counselling session and four treatments of acupuncture but three months later I am able to walk and move with ease. The practitioners are very pleased with my progress and how quickly the combination of treatments has worked. I am still improving and many days I often forget that I have osteoarthritis. I feel sure that many others would also benefit from these treatments.
For a year I was trying to get pregnant in a clinic for assisted reproduction after several ovulation inductions, one artificial insemination and one In Vitro Fertilization. After several tests of evaluation of my fertility I was told that my possibilities of getting pregnant were very low. I could only afford one more IVF treatment. I was looking for alternative therapies that would give me support and increase the possibilities of implantation. I looked in internet and I chose Uby. Uby gave me hope as from the first treatment I felt with more energy and relaxed. She recommended a few month of acupuncture in conjunction with a detox diet and exercise before trying with IVF again and that is how I did it. I prorrogate my IVF for 5 months to prepare my body. I liked her empathy, she is a person that transmit peace and emotional tranquility. The truth is that it has been a success. In my second IVF as it was expected there was only one embryo for transfer. On the same day of the transfer Uby gave me an acupuncture session and "the miracle was made". Now I am 16 weeks pregnant and continue having weekly acupuncture treatments with Uby. The acupuncture not only helped me with the implantation but also alleviated my back pain, stress, etc. I can recommend to all people who are looking for a pregnancy as much as natural as with assisted reproduction to try acupuncture as a treatment for support specially with Uby for her knowledge and her character, always in synchronization with the patient.
I went several times to Barcelona for IVF and this time it worked for the first time, I am sure it is thanks to your wonderful treatment. Many thanks from Belgium.
Thanks Uby for your warm welcome when I went for IVF in Barcelona, I am looking forward to see the results, I will definitely recommend you to my friends in Italy who are going on the same process.
I wanted to get pregnant again after my first child, she was 4 years old, after more than one year I still did´t get pregnant. I visited a gynaecologist who after seeing the results of hormonal tests told me to forget about having more children because with those results it will be impossible. I couldn´t believe it, I told a friend about that and she advise me to visit Uby because she got pregnant after having acupuncture with Uby. From the first visit I was very impressed with Uby for her professionalism and warmth. After 6 treatments I got pregnant! I was so happy and I had a very good pregnancy and labor considering that I am 41 years old. Now my baby is 8 months old. We are so grateful to Uby because I am sure we have Camilla thanks to her treatments.
Uby, I am sending you a photograph of Elli my beautiful 2 years old daughter. I don´t know if you remember me but I have been wanted to thanks you since long time because you helped a lot when I went to Barcelona for the IVF. Thanks for helping me to realise my dream. London
