Patient Comments

“I have been visiting Steve for holistic acupuncture for about a year now. He is truly fantastic at what he does – careful, considered, professional and very talented. Before each session he takes care to ask me how I have been feeling that week, so that he can tailor each treatment to my exact requirements. This means that I haven’t ever had the same treatment twice – whether I have been struggling to sleep or had pain in my knee, each appointment is completely bespoke and incredibly effective.
I find the practise incredibly interesting, and Steve takes the time to explain exactly what he is doing and how it fits into the wider treatment, which is fascinating.
I would recommend him to anyone, and will be continuing my treatment for a long while yet.” – ED

“I have been very impressed with my treatment, which is showing positive and beneficial results. Steve is very professional and empathetic and I would not hesitate to recommend him or his services.” – M

“Went in to labour naturally on the Wednesday evening… so I think you can probably use me as an example of acupuncture assisting with the induction of labour. Thank you.” – SW

“I’ve had my first pain free week in six months” – CC

“I’ve not had any symptoms and that’s down to acupuncture” – EB
