Patient Testimonials

I have also included a few testimonials from my patients commenting on the effectiveness of my acupuncture treatments, and also other aspects of my sessions. I have only included patients' initials to preserve confidentiality.

Back Pain

"I came to see Anita because I had been suffering from low back pain for the last few years. After the first treatment my back felt different, not so tight and rigid and less painful. I was amazed at how quickly I could feel a difference. I continued with a course of treatments and I am now pain free. I feel that I have got my life back and I can finally do whatever I want to do. Thank you, Anita."

Stress and Migraines

"After many years of suffering from stress and migraines I finally decided it was time to try acupuncture. I was a little afraid about going and scared of needles too! I found Anita to be patient, easy to talk to, reassuring, and very calming. The whole experience was very relaxing and pain free. I have seen a radical drop in my stress levels, and my migraines have disappeared. I also found other areas in my life that have improved too, I am sleeping much better and feel happier and revived."

Stop Smoking

"I had smoked for 20 years and felt that it was now time for me to give up. I had tried to quit in the past but it didn't seem to last very long. I had a few acupuncture sessions a week. I found afterwards that the little things that would often cause stress didn't seem so stressful, I felt calm and relaxed. Anita, would put some seeds on my ear to stimulate points in between treatments, she said this would give me extra support. I found my cravings started to reduce after each treatment. I couldn't believe how relaxed I was feeling, even my family and friends noticed a difference! I haven't smoked since my acupuncture treatments. I can't believe it. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who wants to stop smoking."

Fertility treatment

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for over 2 years with no success, we had also had 2 IUI treatments with no success. IVF was a very daunting prospect and I felt that I needed all the help I could get.

I had read of the success of acupuncture in IVF and thought that I had nothing to lose. I had never had acupuncture before or know anyone who had, therefore I went into the treatment with an open mind.

The first time I met with Anita I was at instant ease. Her gentle and caring manner helped me to relax and feel cared for.

I had a couple of treatments before I began my injections (I was on the long protocol), and then had weekly sessions. At the start of each session we took some time to discuss how I had been since the last session and any new symptoms I was experiencing. My symptoms from the drug therapies were not extreme compared to some stories you hear, but each week Anita tailored my treatment to help me carry on.

After each treatment I always felt totally relaxed and ready to take on whatever the week ahead threw at me. The sessions provided me with a sanctuary. As importantly they provided me with the TLC I felt I needed. The fertility clinic nurses try their best to comfort and support, but they are still under pressure to get through patients and sometimes aren’t able to spend the time with you that you need.

I saw Anita on the day of our embryo transfer. Surprisingly to me I was so nervous before we went to the clinic, I was very stressed and hadn’t slept well. The session that Anita performed on me that morning was amazing – I literally floated out! After transfer I had the follow up session which ensured I stayed that way. On arriving home that afternoon after everything was done I slept for hours.

The wait for results was not easy, and I was convinced that the treatment had not been a success.

I was and still am shocked by the fact that we got a positive result – I never believed that we would be lucky first time. I had to be the most negative IVF patient on the planet, but I know that the acupuncture definitely played a part- I wished I had tried it earlier.

I can highly recommend Anita to anyone facing the IVF ‘nightmare’, the cost is irrelevant to the benefits you receive and the end products speak for themselves.

With our heart felt thanks
