Acupuncture

The London Acupuncture Clinic

57A Wimpole St, Marylebone, London W1G 8YP, UK – 020 7935 2030

I was advised to try acupuncture by my GP. I did my research online and I found the London Acupuncture Clinic. I have been followed my Martha and I have seen improvements since the first session. Martha is highly professional, friendly and knowledgeable and I felt extremely comfortable and at ease as Martha clearly explained all procedures and their desired results. I want to share my positive experience and I would advise acupuncture to just anyone. Thank you very much Martha!

I went to the London Acupuncture Clinic for fertility. Having had the standard fertility tests, I had been told that my chances of conceiving naturally were low and should look at IVF and other options. I started acupuncture with Jason at the clinic as soon as I was told this and within three months I fell pregnant naturally with my beautiful baby girl. I cannot recommend the clinic and Jason highly enough. Thank you.

GinSen Clinic - Kensington

15 Kensington Church St, Kensington, London W8 4LF, UK – 020 7937 7968

Lily (the Founder of GinSen) is deeply intuitive with many, many years of expertise and knows exactly what you need to move forward. I went to visit her struggling with my energy in the first trimester of pregnancy. She took a quick look at my tongue, eyes, and took my pulse and devised a plan to sort me out, blending herbs with acupuncture and other lifestyle changes (for example not walking around barefoot!). Within a fortnight my energy was back, my tongue and eyes had brightened and I was no longer feeling nauseous and achy all the time. Thank you Lily!

The specialists in GinSen are very helpful. They have suggested me to take herbal medicines as well as to have acupuncture sessions in order to help me improve my health. I was feeling tired all the time last year, after following the instructions of the specialists, I feel much better these days. Also, my hands and feet were cold most of the time and after taking the herbal medicines as well as the treatment, they are not cold anymore. I highly recommend GinSen for people who want to try alternative way in improving their health.

Alternative Medicine

Wholistic Medical Centre

8 Upper Wimpole St, Marylebone, London W1G 6LH, UK – 020 7486 2196

Being a health care provider myself, it's hard to find an amazing doctor whom I can trust to care for my health. I found that with Dr. Daya and her wonderful and knowledgeable team! What an incredibly comprehensive set up. I am impressed at how well they are able to investigate the root cause of my dis-ease process and tell me things that would otherwise take years if not decades to discover. Wholistic Medical Centre is definitely the best health care provider in London.

I had the opportunity for a month to observe Dr. Daya, Tony Ryman, and Sheila Partridge collaborating on the treatment of their patients and I was highly impressed. The Holistic Medical Centre’s approach is quite unique since it successfully combines expertise in Bio-Meridian screening, Functional Bio-Chemistry and conventional medicine. It emphasizes identifying the factors which cause disease and treat them before the disease manifests. Patients come from all over the world with all types of health issues, from shingles to digestive issues to cancer. I was particularly impressed with how much effort is focused on educating patients on diagnostic methods, the findings, and how the treatment plan is going to resolve symptoms. The approach to health care that the Holistic Medical Centre has taken is ideal for treating patients. It is innovative, patient centered, educative and synthesizes a broad range of modalities.
