"I came to see Anna because I was struggling with menopausal symptoms; hot flushes and headaches mainly but I had also been feeling low for a while which was out of character for me. After my first session my mood really lifted and more gradually I also saw a reduction in the other symptoms. I am so pleased that I had acupuncture and have since recommended a good friend to Anna for treatment."-Helen Hurdman, Evesham

"In 2003 I was diagnosed with nerve pain and after seeing countless specialists who could provide little relief I decided to try acupuncture. Since treatment the pain has become less severe and I have started sleeping better. "-J.T, Winchcombe

"I had sciatica for a few months when someone suggested having acupuncture treatment. After a few sessions I noticed the pain was much better especially after horse riding which was when the sciatica was normally at its worst. After a few more sessions the sciatica has gone completely."-K C, Corse

"Initially I was reluctant to have acupuncture because of my fear of needles but after having a pain in my hip that was causing me to limp I decided to start treatment. After the first session I noticed straight away the pain felt less severe and I was able to walk better. I have a job where I am on feet a lot of the time and so find it beneficial to see Anna on a monthly basis to help with the pain."-K M, Corse
