Treatment Received: Back Pain Treatment
The Wisdom for Health, Acupuncture and Massage clinic gave me perfect treatment following my Back Pain Treatment appointment with them. I was very happy with the price I was charged as well as I felt it was fair and reasonable.

The clinic was great. They gave me really good back pain treatment during my appointment, they are in an area I am familiar with so it was no trouble finding them and they charge fairly so it was great.

Pulled a muscle in my back, needed a sport massage.

Prompt to reply. friendly made me feel comfortable, I was in pain and the massage took that away, I could still feel a discomfort form the pulled muscle but I could move again without pain after the treatment. Would definitely recommend this clinic.

"I received very good treatment for a tight muscle in my left calf"
90%Reviewed 25 Mar 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Sports Massage
Excellent website - I find it difficult to make and receive calls during work hours so booking this appointment was very easy and quick online and received a text reminder on the day of appointment.
I arrived late and apologised and no issue was made about this, didn't feel rushed during the treatment I consider that I received very good treatment for a tight muscle in my left calf and got some solid advice on stretches to do. Enjoyed the chat and trivia information too:-)

Rate the experience as excellent. Good value for money and very beneficial. Would definitely recommend to others, especially those who have used other practices and found them lacking. Will be going back for a massage.

"Excellent advice"
100%Reviewed 16 Mar 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dry Needling
Went very well. Good advice given & pain in back has been relieved. Only gripe is in consultation he wrote down everything I said as I said it I always find this off putting! But as complaints go this is a very small one & shouldn't put anyone off going as he did do what I went there to do. I felt ten times better than when I walked in & by evening back problem was gone & I was feeling normal again. He gave me excellent advice to avoid this problem again. A very holistic approach to healing.

Deep Tissue Massage+Accupuncture+Physiothereapy

I hobbled into the clinic with very bad muscular pain in my lower back. I couldn't sit down in a chair or walk properly. It was 10 days before my first grading in Krav Maga and my chances of attending, at this stage, were very slim. Over 3 sessions during the following week my injury drastically improved. Through massage, acupuncture and physiotherapy I was strong enough to take part, which I passed. It would not have been possible without David's personal treatment, knowledge and expertise which I am very grateful for. The price was reasonable and great value for money.

Working to each individual’s needs, a treatment plan will be set out to help deal with common symptoms of pain & inflammation, muscle atrophy and waste, nausea,and depressive moods.

Acupuncture & Depression

Although we all experience a low mood from time to time, these feelings usually last for perhaps a few days and soon after we "re-boot" and get back to our positive selves once again. For someone with depression however, the ability to re-boot and get back to oneself is often a seemingly impossible task. According to a study in 2008 by the World Health Organization (WHO), it is predicted that by the year 2020 depression will be second only to heart disease as an international health burden.

Although there are many factors that contribute to depression, depression is believed to be the result of chemical imbalances in the brain, especially low levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Depression is characterized by chronic or recurring symptoms of low mood, irritability, anxiety, insomnia, poor appetite, weight change, fatigue, lack of motivation, loss of libido, aches and pains, an inability to concentrate as well as black emotional episodes and suicidal thoughts.

Obviously not every person with depression will exhibit all of these symptoms. Indeed, depression is commonly divided into three subdivisions of mild, moderate and severe. Acupuncture treatment therefore will depend on the types and severity of symptoms of each person's depression.

Many people looking to treat their depression turn to Acupuncture and I have treated many such people down through the years. Similar to the actions of anti-depressants, Acupuncture treatment helps to release serotonin in the brain and alleviate symptoms. As a stand alone therapy,
