Dr Hua Shen Acupuncture

2 Highfield Rd, Birmingham B15 3ED, UK – 07846 573656

After many weeks of waking up with back pain, I have now woke up without any discomfort thanks to Dr.Shen. It took me just 1 session to get back to a happy life. I recommend Dr.Shen to everybody who suffer with back pain or other painful conditions.

Tried Hua for acupuncture for my second IVF attempt. Both my husband and I strongly believe this acupuncture played a big part in my IVF being a success. Thank you Hua, will see you again when I start planning for next baby.

City Acupuncture

18 Lower Temple St, Birmingham B2 4JD, UK – 07798 622788

I first tried acupuncture many years ago and it helped me with a cold but when I had a serious stomach condition I didn't think about acupuncture until I went to Mark. He sorted me out in no time at all and everything is fine now. He is very professional and really puts you at ease. I am a little wary of the whole chi thing but Mark is not at all 'away with the fairies', he's down to earth and very knowledgeable. He knows his anatomy and physiology as well as his Chinese Medicine meridians, I really enjoy the explanations he gives as to why a point is useful for such or such condition. And it's true you do come out of the sessions beautifully relaxed and revitalised. He's fully trustworthy and I highly recommend him. A++++

City Spring Acupuncture Clinic

146 Hagley Rd, Birmingham B16 9NX, UK – 07791 585449

I have had several accupuncture appointments with Jon now and have always felt deeply relaxed and in very safe and trusting hands during the session and afterwards usually feel very peaceful. I would highly reccommend having consecutive weekly appointments for consistency as when I have had consistent weekly appointments this is where I have observed a progressive rebalancing in my mind and body

I have received accupuncture from Jon for many years. He has a wonderful gentle energy and does wonders. This year I booked in my daughter for some treatment, she is a teenager and I initially thought she would refuse to go after the first session, however she came back glowing and now says that she loves the sessions with Jon and cant wait for the next one. Uniquely Jon's treatments work on many levels and he is worth every single penny.

World Of Homeopathy

115, Zellig, The Custard Factory, Birmingham B9 4AT, UK – 0121 296 5268

I recommend World of Homeopathy to everyone. Fiona's help, guidance and support has been amazing. The food intolerance reports are eye opening and have helped my family and I make the right changes for us. These, along with the consultations, have ensured we are on the right path to a supporting our bodies and minds. Would highly recommend World of Homeopathy.

I cannot recommend the food intolerance tests that World of Homeopathy offer enough! The service was so easy to use and the team (Bernie and Fiona) were so helpful and really went beyond my expectations. I not only found out about food intolerances but the test also includes vitamin and mineral deficiencies which are so important to be aware of. The advice of both Bernie and Fiona in the report I received was also excellent. After reading my report my family and friends are now having food intolerance tests done, including all of the young children, which is great to see! Many thanks again to Bernie and Fiona
