“We both met with Verity in December 2013 and both felt very at ease with her, she has taken the time to look into my particular issues and it was great to talk to someone who had a clear understanding of what we may be going through. She was very informative as to each area of the body she would be working on and why she would be working there…I felt instantly relaxed…I could tell that it was helping me cope with a stressful situation which could only be a good thing for me…I felt my body change in some way each time I visited. I felt so relaxed during and after the appointments – it really has been an enjoyable experience…Verity tackles each problem with enthusiasm and detail. It’s a pleasure to be treated by someone who clearly has so much passion and joy in her work and for helping people. I feel that Verity has been invaluable during the treatment…”.

“I have been having acupuncture treatment for six months from Verity. In this time Verity has been very professional, thorough and holistic in her approach to my treatments. I had tried many other treatments previously but none helped my symptoms…Overall, I have been pleasantly surprised at how relaxing the treatments have been and how less tense I feel afterwards. Verity has treated me also with cupping and moxa which was also very nice…I would highly recommend Verity and acupuncture. The benefits are far reaching. Thanks Verity for such positive energy”.

“I am delighted to have met Verity after seeking her expert help. Very quickly, for me, I felt physically and emotionally better, after the first treatment. I continue to see her after the initial once a week session, every four to six weeks. I am so pleased to say that…the pain I was getting is almost non-existent. I can highly recommend Verity and would like to thank her for what she has done for me”.

KC 17/03/13

“I was very sceptical about having acupuncture…I did make Verity aware how much I hate needles, she was very understanding. She took it slowly with the amount of needles and was very gentle with her hands…I would highly recommend acupuncture…I’d like to thank you Verity”.

JM 12/02/13

“To get through the hardest journey, we need to take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping”

A 78 year old lady came to see me presenting with symptoms of osteoarthritis in her knees. Here is what she had to say about her experience:

“I have had a course of six treatments with Verity and found that it has been invaluable. The arthritic pain in my knees…which kept me awake at night has ceased and I am no longer taking painkillers. I found Verity very caring and professional and would not hesitate to recommend her. I plan to have top up treatments if needed on a regular basis”.

The Dragon is the sign of the emperor in China. It symbolises male and yang, wealth, good fortune, and power. People born in Dragon years are to be respected. They are brave, confident, and successful, but can tend towards working too hard. They can get stressed and suffer from tension headaches, and will rarely ask for help.  Does this sound like you?

Why not celebrate the New Year by starting a new course of acupuncture at our clinic?

Treat yourself and take a break!

Xin Nian Kuai Le  新年快乐, Gong Hei Fard Choy  恭喜发财, Xing Ni Ju Yi  新年如意

Happy New Year!

The client is a 36 year old female, whose name has been changed to Sarah for the purpose of this case history.

Sarah had an infected tooth that had been causing her pain, and was due to have root canal treatment at the dentist. Through discussion with her dentist (Dr. Gomez) we agreed a treatment plan. I would treat Sarah first in the dentist’s chair and then dental work would start without any anaesthetic injections being given (acupuncture would be the only pain relief). If Sarah indicated that she was experiencing any pain she could opt to have the anaesthetic at any time.

I performed the acupuncture treatment and then dental work started. Sarah was asked throughout the procedure if she needed any anaesthetic, but she didn’t. Dr. Gomez said that she thought Sarah was “very relaxed”.

After the treatment Sarah was smiling and said that she felt “great”.  She went out for tea and cake immediately afterwards and had no problems eating and drinking. No numb mouth or dribbling! For the next two days, although she felt bruised in the area where the root canal treatment had been done, she experienced “no pain at all”. Four days later Sarah felt “absolutely normal”.

Thank you to Dr. Gomez for her co-operation.
