I like acupuncture, and I found Fiona. I have transitioned from pain and not sleeping to comfort and sleep with Fiona’s skill and care. If I need help again I will know where to go.

Fiona has a very gentle manner and approach and surprisingly I find an acupuncture session relaxing! Needles are tiny and Fiona is skilled at placement. I’m a migraine sufferer and find it useful for managing attacks. I’ve seen several acupuncturists over the years but Fiona is top of the list. Highly recommend!

I couldn’t recommend Fiona enough. She has been generous with her time and her knowledge to try to help with my anxiety and fertility issues. Each session was tailored to my needs that day but always looking at the overall goal. We worked together and she would also take time to find extra things to try and help with my specific problems. I will be back soon!

I was perhaps mildly sceptical of the benefits of acupuncture before ever having it but, after having had it performed by Fiona I am now a convert. After just one session the improvement in my shoulder was incredible and I would highly recommend both the practice and the practitioner.

She is my first port of call when things are out of kilter and is wonderful with all of us, a highly professional practitioner with an exceptionally kind personality who is also always lovely and informative to talk to! None of my children had any worries about the needles and all of us have responded really well to her treatments. I highly recommend her, and the beautiful products in her shop too!

Fiona holds a warm and nurturing space with her treatments. She is skilled and professional. And I rely trust her with my treatments. Since I began regular treatments I have been considerably calmer and more alert. The effects of her treatments longer term have been great too, I no longer crave coffee or alcohol and feel more balanced than ever, which has impacted my work and home life too. I high recommend Fiona and her warm and tranquil acupuncture room!

I was in so much pain when I first contacted Fiona. The pain far outweighed my fear of needles. My initial consultation was very thorough, and everything was explained in great depth to me. Fiona took her time with me and talked me through every step of the way. At no point was I in any pain and I actually felt quite relaxed during the therapy. I continued to see Fiona for a couple of months until my back pain subsided, and am hoping to start a course of treatment for anxiety soon. On a separate note, being signed off with my bad back meant I lost wages. Fiona was so understanding and offered me a more affordable rate which meant I could have the treatment. Without this I’d not have been able to have had the treatment I so desperately needed. Many thanks Fiona, I couldn’t recommend you more!

Having suffered with hay fever from infancy, I dreaded each summer as it approached; the cocktail of prescribed medicine made me drowsy and hardly scratched the surface. Finding Fiona was a gift! I had never had acupuncture before and was a little nervous. Fiona listened to my issues and reassuringly explained what I could expect and discussed how she would treat me. After a short course of treatment, my symptoms drastically reduced and I was back outside enjoying the British summer in all its glory! I now go back to Fiona each Spring not only as a preventative measure, but also for the peaceful and calming environment that she provides. Simply wonderful- thank you so much Fiona!

First visited Fiona when suffering from anxiety, which was causing a number of issues including sleeplessness. Fiona took great care to understand the issues and her treatments made a huge difference, with symptoms subsiding after the first visit. After three appointments I was so much better and now only visit when something triggers the anxiety (travel, work related stress etc). Can’t rate Fiona highly enough and have (and will continue) to recommend her.

I have had acupuncture before but I can honestly say I wouldn't go anywhere else. Fiona is genuinely empathetic and very passionate about what she does. Not only is treatment successful but visiting her clinic is a real pleasure.

After 16 years of bad period pain and the offer of a last resort a hysterectomy as doctors could not do any more and my deep longing to have a baby I approached Fiona for her help. Immediately when I met Fiona I felt at ease and that through her incredible work she could help ease my pain. Not only did she help ease my pain through acupuncture she also helped me through my IVF journey and I believe so much that she is a huge part of the reason we now have a beautiful baby! She is such a caring, professional lady who goes the extra mile. I still to this day don’t understand the amazing power of acupuncture but I do know that Fiona is one of the best! I have recommended her to many friends and they agree she is so skilled at her work.

Over the last couple of years I have been to see Fiona with two pains- jaw tension and lower back. Each time she released the pain and I left feeling lighter and happier. I tried different methods for the pains but each time acupuncture with Fiona has been the treatment that has provided the long term benefits that I haven't had from elsewhere. I would strongly recommend this acupuncture clinic.

I have been seeing Fiona for sometime for acupuncture to help with a range of issues, most recently for menopausal symptoms. She has a lovely manner and maintains professionalism and respect at all times. She explains thoroughly what is required without being pushy with treatment plans. I always feel relaxed and well looked after during my visit and rely heavily on her and her experience to assist with symptoms. To date acupuncture with Fiona has prevented me having to go down the route of medication with HRT, which is what I hoped for. I can’t recommend Fiona highly enough and have sent many people her way.
