I had irregular hormones causing issues due to cysts. Regular acupuncture sessions have helped regulate these and am now pregnant!  The acupuncture and massage are both very relaxing and destressing and along with the medication support overall health.  Thanks to the team here for helping me and always with a smile.

I have been having acupuncture since June 2006 as a complement to the conventional treatment I have been receiving for inflammation of my knees and neck, and I can safely say that the combination did a great deal to relieve the discomfort.  Furthermore, it made a dramatic improvement on my gout condition.  Also, the herbal medicine helped me with restoring my hair.  Finally, I had excellent massage services from Yang, Sue and Sophie.

 Reported by the magazine “Time & Leisure” in March 2012:  Pain stopped here – After years of discomfort a Wimbledon resident finds relief on her doorstep.magzine_clipart.jpg

“I first called in to Herbal World looking for some kind of pain relief that might ease the muscle pain in my arm and shoulder.  I was thinking of tablets that would mot harm the digestive system or a cream that would anaesthetise the pain.  I was taking pain killers, not sleeping well and lacked energy.  I knew my shoulder joint was quite severely affected by arthritis from a scan and xrays that had recently been done.  I was reluctant to undergo surgery which was suggested as the only alternative to a life on painkillers.

At Herbal world I was persuaded  to try a course of acupuncture, massage and herbal medicine tailored to my needs.  I had experienced acupuncture before which had helped manage the pain and was interested in a more holistic approach.  Dr Sophie Lu asked me about all aspects of my limited movement, pain, general health and lifestyle. She checked my pulse, tongue, sleeping patterns, diet, general appearance of skin, hair and general wellbeing.

I started a course of weekly acupuncture, massage and herbal medicine.  Each week started with a general health check on pulse, tongue, sleeping patterns, joint pain, and progress in movement.  The massage was extremely helpful although I found it quite difficult at times.  The muscles of the affected arm and shoulder were weak and painful and had shrunk quite considerably with non use.  The acupuncture was very helpful and energising.  

Each week after the massage I could move my arm more freely and extend the range of arm movements.  The muscles have gradually returned to normal and the pain has reduced considerably.  I now sleep well and feel much more in control of my health.”
