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.

I started seeing Anita at Bexley Acupuncture Clinic in December 2015 for the acute onset of anxiety. I had never experienced anything so debilitating in my life. The healing starts when Anita enters the room. She is totally focused on her patient, carefully listens to your history, and is fully engaged in the healing process. She poses thoughtful questions to clarify all facets of the medical problem. I initially saw Anita twice a week and after the first visit I felt relief which left me surprised and ecstatic. I have progressed so far on that I now feel very calm and my anxiety has virtually disappeared.
Acupuncture has been extremely beneficial to my overall health. If you have any doubts about the effectiveness of acupuncture in today's world, the standard of Anita's care and professionalism will convince you that it works. Anita is a professional, compassionate and intuitive acupuncturist, demonstrated by the wonderful results I felt and achieved. She has a thorough and dedicated approach to achieving optimum health for all her clients. I would definitely recommend Anita at the Bexley Acupuncture Clinic, Erith.

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."

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

Fertility and Pregnancy
I've been seeing Anita for acupuncture since March 2015 where she initially helped with fertility issues. By September 2015, I was pregnant and saw her throughout my pregnancy. Since having my baby, I have seen her multiple times for various issues including SPD and back pain, always with excellent results.

I love the holistic way Anita treats her patients, always treating the root cause and not just the symptoms. I always feel significantly better after a treatment; less stressed, calmer, better sleep and with more energy. I thoroughly recommend acupuncture and Anita to anyone.

Back Pain
Patient 1
I have always had pain in my back.

Before the acupuncture treatment I could not sit down for 10 seconds. I can now sit down for a long time. I was able to sit down on a 4 hour flight.

I hit 120 golf balls last week and not even a twinge! I have never been able to do that before. I am a completely different person.

I am sleeping better too.

I’ve never felt this good.
I feel 100% better.
You have worked wonders on me.

I feel more relaxed. Its amazing, I’m not worrying anymore, nothing bothers me anymore.

I feel mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually better.

I used to be a sceptic, I did all my research first.

It is the best money I have ever spent. I wish I had acupuncture earlier.

Patient 2
"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."

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."
