In a word Johnny is ‘brilliant’. I have been seeing Johnny for the last six months and I feel like a different person. After a long initial discussion, Johnny was confident in his diagnosis of me and set about treatment. Almost instantly, I felt different. I had far more energy, far less anxiety and, according to my husband, my voice lifted. Over the next few months, these changes continued. I now feel far more at ease, far more relaxed and far happier. Johnny talks through the treatment step by step and having never had acupuncture before, I felt completely happy about the idea of the needles. The treatment is painless. Johnny’s approach is incredibly empathetic and he is also great company. My husband was so impressed by my transformation that he has also become one of Johnny’s patients.
‘Leaving the fact that Johnny is absolutely stunning and charming, Johnny is definitely an amazing acupuncturist and pleasant person to speak with! After trying to have a baby for more than 1 year, before to going for the IVF, I decided to go to Kite Clinic. (Johnny). I did not know what I was expecting from the sessions, but session after session I have discoved that my life was changing in better! While in the first few sessions I was focused on ‘getting pregnant’, Johnny made me realise that there was something wrong with my inner body (I knew it already, but i did not want to realise /accept). For all my life, I had 2 feelings: anxiety and worried. If I was not anxious, I was worried and if I had none of them I started to be worried because I was not anxious! Seriously, (sometime I could not tolerate myself!). Since the first session my feelings have changed drastically! Unfortunately I am still not pregnant, but I am sure I will be soon as the my whole body is changing every time and getting better and I’m literally finding myself again. I strongly recommend Johnny to everyone!'
Johnny is incredible, and has helped me so much in the 4 months that I’ve been coming to see him. I went to see Johnny for help with fertility issues as we had been trying to have a baby for 18 months with no luck and also had just had a failed IVF cycle. I had tried acupuncture before, but the traditional Chinese medicine style, and liked it but was recommended Johnny by a friend and liked the sound of Five Elements – it made sense that everything in my body needed to be working to its best to be able to get pregnant. I went to Johnny at a really hard time and at the first session I was in a state of panic and desperation that it would never happen, however I left the clinic feeling completely different and so much more settled and as if a weight had been lifted. I have been seeing Johnny for 4 months now and it is amazing, I have become some much calmer and more relaxed about the whole IVF process and have become less anxious and panicked about becoming pregnant. We also got pregnant, but unfortunately miscarried, but this was such a massive step for me as that had never happened before, and I know for sure that this is down to Johnny and the acupuncture. I completely trust him and feel so much better as soon as I walk in the door of the clinic.
I have been a patient of Johnny Child’s for the past 5 years, I see him once every couple of months to keep things in check. I have always found him to be both charming and professional. He has an excellent chair-side manner and always puts me at my ease with consistently good results. I am happy to recommend Johnny to anyone.
A session spent with Johnny is never time wasted. Empathetic, knowledgable and reassuring; I always left feeling lighter than when I arrived.
I'd been thinking about having acupuncture for a number of years and there was something that appealed to me after I heard Gerard's pod cast about the 5 element method, but I wasn't quite sure exactly what that was. Johnny got back to me really quickly after my enquiry and he said the best thing would be to have a quick phone call. Johnny was absolutely right about this- the way he explained how he works really crystallised for me why I wanted to do this and he helped me to feel at ease before my first session and not feel like I was walking into something completely unknown. On the first session I knew pretty much straight away that we'd build a great working alliance. This is because Johnny is warm, empathic and genuine as well as being professional and boundaried. These qualities are significant to me, as for someone from my background with the life experiences I've had, it's fundamental that I feel safe enough in a space that I might feel vulnerable in. I decided that I wanted to just experience the process, and not know in detail exactly what Johnny was working on and why. We discussed this in the first session which seemed to very much fit with Johnny's way of working as he says otherwise it can get a bit 'horoscopy'!! I really love the way Johnny works and adapts to my current needs and staggers the sessions to allow time for processing. Johnny also asks me to update him on how I'm doing if we've worked on something in particular and will offer a quick check in/top up session if needed, which I find to be very supportive. It also let's me know that Johnny approaches the way he works with clients holistically and holds them in mind between sessions. I very much appreciate the check in that we have at the start of the session before working and the biggest surprise for me looking back at the sessions I've had so far, is how much I laugh - not something I thought I'd be doing in acupuncture!! Johnny holds that sometimes tricky to negotiate balance of professionalism/friendliness with ease and consistently each session, so I know exactly what to expect and I also know Johnny will explain everything step by step if needed. The sessions flow and feel very comfortable and natural. Since I've started this journey I feel a lot more connected to and aware of my body, which is something I wanted. I still cannot get over how quickly and easily I gave up smoking. It was just a non issue, no cravings. It wasn't even like I gave up smoking, I just magically stopped. Quite incredible when I've been smoking on and off for 18 years. I also did this to support me through a lot of changes I was initiating in my life and I have found it incredibly supportive emotionally. I think I will work with Johnny for years to come which is not something I'd really considered or thought about until now. I've tried a number of things over the years, but if I had to sum it up, I'd say that this process, or method or however you want to look at it, really balances me. I think life can sometimes take us a little off balance and that's inevitable, so it's good to know that I can come and see Johnny and I'll walk out feeling more grounded, centred and back in balance again.
