Patients Experiences

"Would just like to thank you so much for the treatment I received from you recently.
My shoulder has improved so much and I am finally off the blood pressure tablets as my blood pressure seems to have now regulated.

My general well being has improved and I feel much better in myself.
So thank you once again for your treatment and advice."

"As an Acupuncturist myself, I believe it's important to receive treatment. I choose Marcus as my practitioner because I find him very professional and he seems to understand exactly what I need when I go and see him. He has been my practitioner for the last 4 years and I throughly recommend him."

"Marcus is someone I recommend to all my friends who want to try out acupuncture. Reasons being that he is so gentle, he puts you at ease and he explains everything he is doing in layman's terms. I have been going to Marcus for over a year or so now with different problems and within a couple of sessions have found relief from pain. Marcus also does not rush his appointments in the 30 minutes or so he has with you. He takes his time. He is very passionate about his profession and is a very caring, understanding person."

"I was having daily incapacitating headaches with frequent severe migraine attacks. Acupuncture treatment has abolished the daily headaches and the migraine attacks are less frequent, less painful and shorter duration. Generally, my quality of life has improved significantly."

"I have been suffering from migraines for about 20 years and since having children the severity and frequency of these have increased. Before I started having acupuncture I was having 2/3 a week. I could control them with medication from the doctor but I was worried about the impact these drugs were having on my body. Since seeing Marcus my migraines have reduced considerably, the tension in my neck and shoulders, which contributed to my migraines, has now gone completely. I always have more energy after having acupuncture and feel more relaxed. I would highly recommend acupuncture for reducing the frequency of migraines."

"Migraines have been a regular feature of my life for the past twenty years and have resulted in many "lost" days. For the past ten years I have also been taking medication for high blood pressure which has precluded me from trying any of the stronger migraine relief products. I had resigned myself to a life with migraines when a colleague told me that acupuncture had worked for him. I do not like needles so it wasn't until I had suffered yet another severe migraine that I plucked up courage to make an appointment. I am so glad that I did. I am amazed and very grateful that your weekly treatments over the past eight weeks have kept me free of migraines, especially considering that this has also been an extremely stressful period at work for me."

"I went to consult Marcus for recurring headaches following an RTA 15 years ago. Using acupuncture and cupping gave instant relief and freedom of neck movements. I found this of enormous benefit.

Apologies for the ____gaps___ but we can not suggest that acupuncture can treat any condition that cannot be substantiated by robust evidence dispite the positive benefits patients have found.

Robust evidence can now substantiate:

Short - term improvement in the symptoms of overactive bladder syndrome (through electro - acupuncture at the SP6 point)
Short term relief of tension type headaches
Short term relief of migraine headache
Short term relief of chronic lower back pain
Short term relief of neck pain and chronic neck pain
Short term relief of temporormandibular (TMD/TMJ pain)
Temorary adjuctive treatment for osteoarthritis knee pain

We wait for more trials to lengthen the list, meanwhile see if you can fill in the gaps.
