Treatment for pain and fatigue. Martin has a deep knowledge of his subject and was brilliant. He always has time and explains things.
Great value for the time and expertise. Would highly recommend, as I have seldom experienced good service.

"The 100% attention to me, my ailments and to all details was exceptional"

Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
I received a free consultation with Martin. He held my wrists and read my pulse points, a sign, to me, of an experienced and gifted Chinese medical practitioner, if nothing else but for the subtlety of this method. Martin's reading was accurate and on the button and shed much light on my situation. The 100% attention to me, my ailments and to all details was exceptional. It is a delight to report Martin's obvious integrity and skills. I look forward to returning to have a full acupuncture session very soon.

I met Martin by at an outdoor event. I had a strange growth on my finger and when I showed him, he offered me a free consultation. He is not only professional but kind also. Immediately I felt comfortable with the idea of trying something I had not tried before.

"Treatment at first was a bit uncomfortable but that eased quickly"
4.5 50Reviewed 13 Apr 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
Went for a consultation as have had lower back pain for few months and my MRI was clear. Physio could do nothing and was told to rest it which is impossible. Sent an email explaining my situation and made my appointment for a consult which was free. Was told could have acupuncture for pain relief and stress relief which I opted for. Treatment at first was a bit uncomfortable but that eased quickly.

During my consultation I was given copius amounts of good advice, including dietary. I was told that I could be given pain relief but other treatments were recommended for a long term solution. Had the pain relief treatment done. The treatment itself was a bit unpleasant at first but as I learned to relax I was fine. I had great pain relief and found the next day I had better movement in my lower back. I was quite impressed and would highly recommend to anyone who has a similar problem. I also liked that he did not try to sell me an array of treatments. I felt my welfare was definitely a priority!
