“I approached Verity because of my back pain. I chose to approach Verity as my mother goes to her too and I have heard the benefits of acupuncture. The results were truly amazing. After a week I felt so much better. Verity gave me some really good advice on exercises and nutrition. She is truly a lovely, friendly, calm lady. Very approachable and friendly too. My experience in being treated by Verity was very relaxing and enjoyable. I highly recommend Verity”.

Happy Chinese New Year! Enjoy good health!

Chinese New Year (the spring festival) marks the end of the winter season. It is a time to celebrate the start of new life, to let go of any resentments, start afresh, and wish peace and happiness to all.

2015 is the Year of the Goat (also known as Sheep or Ram) which begins on 19th February, and is traditionally celebrated for 15 days.

If you were born in 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 and 2015 then you were born in the Year of the Goat. People born in these years are said to be gentle, kind, compassionate, sensitive and wise. They are also creative and artistic.

If you were born in the Year of the Goat then contact Verity. To celebrate the New Year she would like to offer you a 10% discount for your first consultation (offer ends 28th February 2015).

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!

So whether you would like to ask any questions, come along for a chat, or to look at the tools of the trade, Verity would love to see or hear from you.



“Verity was extremely friendly, courteous and professional in her manner and each consultation was thorough and reassuring. The full course of treatment has certainly helped to ease my pain and make me more relaxed. Moreover I have been consequently able to manage my underlying problem with more efficacy than had I still been suffering from severe pain. Many thanks Verity”.

“I have had a course of 12 treatments with Verity…Verity put me at ease instantly and I saw an improvement in my symptoms from the first week. Throughout the treatment Verity has been friendly, caring and knowlegeable. Although I had been apprehensive about having needles stuck into me, Verity is very gentle and skilled at her work and I have come to look forward to my treatment sessions. I have left every session feeling more relaxed and significantly better. I cannot recommend acupuncture with Verity enough”.

“Verity set me at ease from the very first meeting. I was nervous of what to expect but she explained everything thoroughly and clearly and answered my questions. She took detailed notes of my medical history and this enabled her to tailor the treatments to my requirements. Her subject knowledge is immense, she keeps detailed records of every session and is happy to adapt to my needs and requests. She is always punctual and professional and creates a wonderfully calming atmosphere when giving treatments. I highly recommend her as a practitioner. A therapist with true heart”.

“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 found Verity to be very caring, gentle and professional. She put me at ease straight away and explains what she is doing and why. I would highly recommend her”.

OC 17/02/14

“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”.

AC 07/12/13

“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

“Thank you so much Verity for the amazing way you have treated a variety of my ongoing problems”.

“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!
