I attended the clinic mid menopause suffering from exhaustion, stress and a loss of self - I wasn’t sleeping, I was putting on weight and feeling low self esteem, doctor Vera Martins has been helping me to assess all aspects of my life to make natural changes to improve my health - she has been hugely supportive and understanding and has helped me take measurable steps towards feeling healthier, happier and more balanced. A new me! I am so grateful.

I have been suffering from chronic irritable bowel syndrome for many years. After extensively trying main stream health services, to no avail, I sought the treatment of Vera Martins after reading about her natural and holistic approach to dealing with such health issues. Following many months of applying her treatments my condition is significantly better. Vera is a very kind and caring practitioner. I highly recommend her.

Vera was very thorough and very knowledgable. She has such a breadth of holistic knowledge that pieced my various symptoms together to uncover underlying causes. Treating these with the right supplements over an extended period has brought healing and vitality. It has also helped me learn my own strategies of self care to ensure I can maintain my balance.

Very reassuring - manageable amounts of information per appoint with thorough follow-up, contextualised in a way that I can apply this advice to my lifestyle. Improvements felt almost immediately as a result.
