Acupuncture works

"I would recommend Jonathan's skills to anyone. On top of my therapy he's offered dietary tips and lent me relaxation CDs to further encourage and aid my recovery, reflecting the idea that he is genuinely interested in your wellbeing. His bedside manner is also incredibly friendly and accommodating: he's always willing to hear what you are trying to say."

I must admit to being a little sceptical

A friend who used acupuncture for some years, and had found it beneficial, suggested that I might benefit from such treatment. I must admit to being a little sceptical of all complementary medicine at that time and I was concerned that acupuncture may not be compatible with the medication I was taking. I consulted my GP and he was quite enthusiastic that I should give acupuncture a trial.

My first treatment, which included a brief explanation of acupuncture, was interesting and I was surprised to find how relaxing the treatment was. I still find it difficult to understand how inserting needles into the body can be so relaxing – I have even, on the odd occasion, dropped off to sleep during treatment!

It is difficult to assess the physical benefit of the treatment as it is impossible to know what the situation would have been had I not have embarked upon acupuncture, but there is certainly no noticeable further deterioration in my condition. However, I definitely experience a marked feeling of well being after each treatment which, I feel, alone justifies me continuing with acupuncture.

I would therefore recommend acupuncture to anyone with similar problems to myself, subject of course to your GPs approval and I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan personally, with his friendly, sympathetic and totally professional approach.
