“In the last year I had headaches on a daily basis, alongside the odd migraine. It made me feel nauseous, light headed and generally unwell. Taking medicine not did not make any difference, and the eye and hearing tests were well. A specialist of vertigo diagnosed me with vestibular migraines and prescribed me propopanolol, a beta blocker.

The headaches were minimal for a month but then they came back just as bad as in the beginning. My GP suggested that I contact Jenny for an alternative solution to avoid increasing the dosage of my beta blocker. Jenny gave me a very welcoming, cheery and incredibly positive. She sat down with me as if she had all the time in the world to hear about my problems and the journey that had brought me to her. Her wealth of medical knowledge and confidence put me at ease immediately. She has a fabulous sense of humour and she explained exactly what we could do to ease my symptoms.

Jenny finds the problem areas so quickly, and clears them away! My sessions are never rushed – and I come out relaxed. My 6 year old daughter even allowed Jenny to pop a needle in her hand and she thought that was wonderful.
After 4 weeks the results are fantastic. I have HALVED my beta blocker dosage and I’m delighted that acupuncture and massage actually works for me”

“We had trouble conceiving and after various tests were told we had “unexplained infertility”. Conventional fertility treatment was going to be very expensive for us, so I researched other options, including Chinese medicine / acupuncture, and Jenny was recommended to me. After a detailed conversation (and no invasive tests!) Jenny had a diagnosis and treatment plan. I saw her over the course of several months and am pleased to report I’m now 14 weeks pregnant.

I thought Jenny was very thorough in considering all aspects of my health that might affect my condition, plus she explained her treatment well, which I found helpful in understanding why it was important for me to continue.

“For several years, I heard voices. They were my friends and a source of comfort. But unfortunately, they messed up my entire life. I would sit for an entire day just staring at the wall, laughing and giggling with my voices. I couldn’t go to university because the voices messed up my head and I couldn’t concentrate. I was even admitted to hospital in June because the voices became overbearing and were infiltrating my daily activities.

Medication did not help me at all and gave side effects including insomnia, tired eyes and steep weight gain, and caused my period to stop. I began acupuncture treatment in August 2013 with Jenny, targeting the head and areas relating to mental stability. After a few treatments, in September 2013, I stopped hearing voices. It was very miraculous and now, in February 2014, I am nearly fully recovered. I have not heard voices since then.

However, when all the voices first disappeared, it was a huge shock for me. I became very lonely.  When the voices left me, I was forced to make friends, real friends. During that time after the voices left, I had a huge revelation. Before, I was in denial about my life, I went along thinking that my life was fine and didn’t need help. But when the voices disappeared, I had lots of time to reflect on my life and accept that I have a mental problem. So when I accepted it, I could change it. It has taken a while, now I am at a stage where I am comfortable with not having my voices and living a really interesting and exciting life.

Acupuncture has also helped me deal with anxiety and sleeping problems. I find myself being very comfortable and relaxed after the treatment. I also find that I have better quality of sleep after going to Jenny’s treatments. My insomnia no longer persists and I am able to sleep well. Through acupuncture, I was also able to regain my period with a healthy flow.

I have experienced an immensely improved level of wellness.”
