cannot recommend Alison highly enough, she is such a calming, caring person who

CANCER SUPPORT Testimonials
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer. They decided that I would need chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy. In the middle of the radiotherapy I also began Tamoxifen. Within a couple of weeks I started to have hot flushes. At first they were four or five times a day and very manageable and I initially thought they would stay this way. I then started Zolodex and unfortunately they increased In both frequency and severity. By the time I started seeing Alison I was having hot flushes pretty much every hour that I was awake and they were causing me to wake several times a night. They were really strong and I would need to shower or change clothes several times a day, they were particularly bad from the neck up and I was actually very grateful that I didn’t really have much hair! Luckily I didn’t have the really bad night sweats that required changing the bed sheets. It was lovely to meet Alison and she immediately put me at ease. It was so nice to meet someone who was there for me and for a positive reason. I felt really ready to tackle these flushes, but not 100% sure that acupuncture would actually help. I noticed a small drop in the frequency and seventy after the first session, and a continued decrease after the second, which was a fortnight later. I was not sure if it was the acupuncture or just my body getting used to the new drug
I was unable to see Alison for what would have been the third session two weeks later, but booked for two weeks after this. During the third week after treatment 2, I noticed the hot flushes rising again in frequency and severity and by the fourth week was almost back to where I started. Clearly acupuncture had been helping to keep them at bay. A third treatment and then a fourth has got them back to a manageable level. I can thoroughly attest to the value of acupuncture in managing the hot flushes and the caring and supportive nature of Alison is so positive, I feel as if I am regaining control of my physical self and settling into my new normal”.
“I went to see Alison at her clinic through recommendation. Before visiting Alison, I spoke to her on the phone for an initial consultation, this was so I was aware of she was going to do & to understand the whole concept. Any doubts had at this stage were diminished as Alison explained everything fully and felt confident enough to visit her. I was 33 weeks pregnant when I first visited Alison. my first visit, straight away she made me feel at ease, and advised of all the treatment she was going to do thoroughly… I found Alison to be very professional as well informative in regards to her line of work I went away from my first appointment feeling very relaxed, refreshed & had an amazing nights sleep for the first time in my pregnancy. I saw Alison on a weekly basis for the next 5-6 weeks for pre-birth acupuncture before going into labour at 39+3 weeks. I thoroughly recommended Alison & acupuncture as a complimentary treatment whilst on my ante-natal NCT course, and would also recommend it to anyone who is looking for treatment…
With the prebirth acupuncture as well as early stage labour treatment from Alison, I honestly believe that I had an amazing short labour (27 minutes for established labour), I know that when me & my husband try for baby number 2. the first person I will be calling is Alison. Thank you Alison for helping me through the late stages of my pregnancy, for being amazing at what do & for really making a difference… A very happy proud mummy…”
PAIN & INFLAMMATION Testimonials
“I saw Alison over a period of 2 years & she made a huge difference to my health. Having been diagnosed with RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) a year before, I was on steroids & suffering with lots of pain & reduced movement. Thanks to regular treatments & the supplements Alison recommended, I am off steroids & have just reduced my medication by half.
At the same time, Alison reduced other side effects of previous chemo treatment for cancer, which included digestive issues, night sweats & irregular periods. I cannot recommend her enough!!”
“I’ve spent 5 months with a wrist complaint which I visited Alison for acupuncture to help. In my role as a hairdresser, I couldn’t stop working and certainly wasn’t prepared to let my clients down. In that time period I’ve been prescribed anti inflammatory drugs and painkillers to help alleviate the pain – nothing has touched the pain during that time period, bar one thing – acupuncture. After seeing her I instantly feel the difference in my wrist, the painkillers have made me literally crawl to bed they’ve been that strong but still I had that permanent nag. I can hand on heart say that after seeing Alison August she helped me get through a manic three day weekend With three weddings and back to back clients. I honestly don’t think I could have done it without her.
If you are skeptical about acupuncture then seriously book an appointment because once you see the benefits, there really isn’t much that compares to it. Alison’s approach is also spot on, she’s informative, helps you understand what’s going on and recommends things to help you. Acupuncture has been my lifeline for pain relief and I wouldn’t go anywhere else”.
