"I was seen on time and the therapist’s approach was professional"
5 50Reviewed 05 Jul 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture for pain and stiffness in neck, knee and hands. Too soon to comment on the efficacy of the treatment. The use of Chinese traditional music was soothing and helped me to relax.

I was seen on time and the therapist’s approach was professional. Any questions I had were answered to my entire satisfaction. No negative comments.

"Made welcome from start to finish"

Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation,Acupuncturist Consultation
I had acupuncture treatment, I hurt my back I tried heat patches, but it was not moving the pain, so I contacted the clinic, and we discovered I had a trapped nerve in my back that was causing all the pain, I was giving one hour treatment, and the price is very good. I would recommend this to friends and family.

I went on the Internet to find if there was a clinic near to me, and I was lucky I found one just around the corner where I live, filled in my details online, and the got back to me very quickly, and I managed to get an appointment within two days. I was made welcome from start to finish.

Acupuncturist Consultation
Chang Chun (Jenny) Ren trained for 5 years at Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has over 27 years of extensive clinical experience.  Free initial consultation of up to 15 minutes. Treatments include Acupuncture, Tui-Na, Cupping, Moxibustion and advice about diet and exercise.
Electro-acupuncture (not as alarming as it sounds!) is sometimes used as part of a treatment and is particularly effective for pain relief.  Small clips are attached to some of the acupuncture needles and connected to a battery powered device which emits continuous electric pulses, stimulating the points being treated. 
Fertility Acupuncture

The Acupuncture Clinic has had considerable success in fertility treatments.

Acupuncture can help to balance hormones and improve circulation in the womb, which improves the chances of a successful pregnancy. The success rate of IVF treatments is almost doubled when used in conjunction with acupuncture  treatments.  Acupuncture is also a very effective treatment for morning sickness.  To see if Acupuncture might help you why not book a free consultation?
