D.W 'Kim has been treating me for several years in a most professional manner. Not only is she competent but has a friendly and informative approach to what could be considered a 'tricky’ system to those of us unfamiliar to acupuncture. I am still working full time in a stressful environment and I have Kim to partly thank for this, she helps me to control physical stress on my spine/neck and helps to keep my energy levels balanced. Thank you Kim, please don’t move away!!"
S.M. “I have been treated by Kim for 12 months and the results have been incredible. I have suffered with a prolapsed disc for 3 years which prevented me from sleeping and doing any form of exercise. Thanks to Kim I am back in the gym and finally getting a good night’s sleep! Amazing results – I cannot speak highly enough of Kim.”
S.C. "Kim is extremely professional and conscientious, and you never feel rushed when visiting her for a treatment, which unfortunately is not always the case these days with other therapists.I have found the acupuncture coupled with Tui Na very beneficial in easing back and hip pain.I would not hesitate to recommend Kim."
S.H.S. "Kim’s acupuncture has proved very helpful in treating my whip lash injury and digestive issues. The accumulative effect of the treatments was substantial and I can only describe it as rejuvenating and gently re balancing. I would recommend her without hesitation and trust her knowledge and professionalism. I see acupuncture as something I will continue to a go back to, as it supports my general health so effectively."
S.F. "I first visited Kim in October 2015 with persistent shoulder pain. I had never visited an acupuncturist before and was a little apprehensive. However, Kim immediately put me at ease and I was very impressed with her professional approach and advice. After several sessions with Kim, my shoulders are completely pain free and I am delighted with the treatment I received. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kim to my friends and family."
J.B. "I have a slipped disc in my neck which presses on a nerve causing extreme neck & shoulder pain, dizziness and numbness in the hand. I had various medical procedures and 12 sessions of physiotherapy which gave me no improvement. Then acupuncture was recommended by my consultant. At my first appointment Kim questioned me very thoroughly, not just about the acute pain in my neck and shoulders but to find out about my whole body. Each week at follow up treatments I was asked about specific pain I was experiencing so each treatment was individually tailored to my needs. Over the last year acupuncture has helped me with menopausal symptoms and dealt swiftly with a nasty cold. I felt immediate relief from day one and now after a series of appointments I often have days where I can forget my problem. Gradually over time symptoms have reduced, I can now take a plane journey which used to be awful but now I am now able to travel pain free. I would definitely recommend Kim, as acupuncture has changed my life from one with constant pain from something as simple as sitting in a chair to often forgetting it completely. My condition is such that I will not get better but it is such a relief to know that Kim is available to relieve that pain."
S.C. "I originally made an appointment with Kim for shoulder/upper back pain (the result of an old whiplash injury) and the migraines I suffer from. However, the sessions coincided with a very stressful time at work and Kim not only provided treatment for the physical pain I was suffering but also helped me to manage the stress I was under and I always left the sessions feeling uplifted and relaxed. Kim's is very intuitive and will ensure that you are comfortable with any treatments before continuing. I found her to be extremely flexible with fitting appointments around my long work commutes and her East Ilsley clinic is the perfect tranquil retreat! At the end of my treatments I felt like a new person with a marked improvement in both the shoulder/upper back pain, a reduction in the number of migraines I suffer and a healthier outlook on life! I would have no hesitation in recommending Kim."
J.F. "Six years ago I damaged my knee, and following an operation I was told it was very arthritic and nothing more could be done so I would need a replacement knee. Since that time I have been trying to delay this replacement for as long as possible. About six months ago I started to visit Kim who was highly recommended by another client. The knee pain is much relieved, and I have considerably more mobility and stability in the joint so I can walk further and am much more mobile. In addition I have problems with my digestion which have not yet been diagnosed, and also a heart arrhythmia which Kim is also treating. I find her holistic approach to my conditions refreshing as conventional medicine views patients as a series of conditions. Whilst these conditions cannot be cured, the acupuncture I receive helps me to manage them."
Mental & Emotional Support
J.H. "I have found Kim to be a kind, sensitive and thorough acupuncturist. Since seeing her, my symptoms caused by anxiety have all but ceased. I visit Kim intermittently to manage my anxiety at times of stress and I always come away feeling grounded and in control again. Having never had acupuncture before, I was a little nervous, but I needn’t have been. Kim explained what she was doing and I found the whole experience very relaxing. I would happily recommend Kim to family and friends."
T.E. "I sought out Kim after a bereavement that left me on the edge and struggling to find the parts of myself I needed. Both the community acupuncture and private sessions proved to be very helpful. I often get to an appointment feeling strung out and by the time the needles are in I can already feel myself settling. When everything is shifting around you, being able to find a small amount of time to have a treatment that brings you back to yourself can be a lifeline. Kim is a very sensitive and encouraging practitioner, I always feel in safe hands."
K.M. 'When I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, as well as taking the high dosage steroids prescribed by the hospital, I discovered through researching the internet, that acupuncture has been found to be very effective in aiding a full recovery. So I went to see Kim who'd been recommended to me. Kim is lovely. She fills you with confidence whilst demonstrating her expert knowledge and ability in a friendly, caring and gentle manner. Following a full consultation, Kim treated me for the root cause of the Bell's Palsy - the effects of grief with shock, due to a succession of losses of loved ones. I truly believe Kim was spot on with her treatment plan, because after just a few appointments I made a remarkable and full recovery from a signifcant paralysis of one side of my face in only 2 weeks. It usually takes a lot longer and sometimes people are left with permanent damage. I can't tell how good it was to get my smile back! Thank you so much Kim!'
M.M. "Kim’s acupuncture has transformed my life… I visited her because of the impossibleness of my migraines and she has made them manageable. She has transformed my menstrual cycle, cleared up sciatica and given me smoother existence. And I’m certain she helped clear a friends leg ulcers pretty speedily!! All sounds bonkers, yet her acupuncture has impressed me more than I would/could have expected."
C.K. "I have used many acupuncturists over the years and find Kim to be one of the very best. You get so much from each appointment, help, advice and continued support with follow up e-mails. Her positive approach is uplifting and her dietary advice is inspiring. I have had endometriosis for 2 years and since seeing Kim in June 2015 my pain management is greatly improved using far less conventional pain relief. She also helps my general wellbeing (PMT). After each session I feel calm and emotionally stable. Kim has helped change my life for the better and I always look forward to her treatments. I highly recommend her to anyone."
Hay Fever & Chronic Sinusitis
L.S. "I decided to try acupuncture out of desperation after struggling with hayfever and failing to find much relief from prescribed medication. Kim immediately put me at ease through her attentive, charismatic and professional manner - offering explanations and ensuring I felt comfortable at every stage. During the course of my three sessions over three weeks I felt like the intensity of my symptoms decrease - I never anticipated such direct progress! Furthermore my assessment indicated some secondary complaints with iron deficiency for which Kim was able to provide me with dietary and supplement advice. Since following the recommendations I feel an energy restored that I had been missing since opting for a vegetarian diet four years ago and also a greater sense of control over my health. I will be forever grateful to Kim for her help and forsee return visits in the years to come."
E.B. "I visited Kim after suffering from painful and debilitating IBS for a number of months. After six sessions of acupuncture the symptoms were almost completely eradicated and I felt much better. Kim has a warm, approachable manner and really put me at my ease. She obviously has a huge knowledge base to draw upon and was able to tailor my treatment to the way I was feeling each time I saw her. I’m very grateful and can’t recommend her highly enough!"
V.W.C. "I’ve been a patient of Kim’s for several years. Acupuncture is a great opportunity for your practitioner to treat your entirety. From diet, sleep, musculoskeletal and anxiety. I find having regular treatments help maintain my physical and emotional well being."
J.M. "Kim is very talented and intuitive and makes a tangible difference to the quality of my life and my day-to-day energy as a whole. Kim has been my practitioner for over a year although I have benefitted from acupuncture for the past 26 years. I highly recommend her."
A.M. "I suffer from chronic fatigue. My life has always been a life of tiredness to one degree or another. After being treated by Kim my strength has increased massively. My quality of life has improved so much I would say that Kim's treatment has changed what I can & cannot do. She is a very talented, accomplished person who is now fortunately part of my life."
A.D. "I have had acupuncture with Kim for various reasons, but the most affective was after an addiction, which not only helped my body, but also a stronger way of thinking."
Cosmetic Acupuncture & Facial massage
E.G. "I frequently visit Kim for treatment and I highly recommend the facial massage. I always find it to be a deeply relaxing experience leaving my skin so soft and bright - its wonderful and a great way to treat yourself! Kim's professional and friendly manner puts me at ease every time."
