Julie Williams – Whitchurch

I have been suffering from migraines for the last 2-3 years which have been steadily getting worse as time passed. They are directly attributed to my hormones and monthly cycle and my Mum used to get them. When I had a migraine I had all the usual symptoms; sickness, sensitivity to light and pounding pain behind my eyes and forehead. They would last for anything from 3 to 6 days with no relief. I was taking far too much ibuprofen and it barely made a dent in the pain but did offer some relief.

I was sceptical about acupuncture as a possible treatment as I had no understanding of how it could work and still don’t if I’m honest. I do know that it works though and I really don’t need to understand it in order to benefit from it. I only wish I’d tried it sooner.

The positive effect was very quick and within a couple of months the migraines reduced in intensity and didn’t last as long. After another few sessions they hardly appeared at all. I’m confident that these will soon be banished.

Whilst working on the migraines I’ve also had treatment for fertility, it’s only been 2-3 months but so far my cycle has regulated and returned to normal. I remain hopeful that the outcome will be a positive one.

Cath is excellent, she’s professional, friendly and instantly puts you at ease. It’s more like popping in to see a good friend for a natter than being a patient. I can’t thank her enough for the positive impact she’s had on my life.

Julia Birch – Sandbach

juliaSince having breast cancer in November last year, I have suffered from terrible hot sweats and insomnia. This was partly due to the treatment and partly due to being taken off my HRT.

This affected my working life and I struggled to cope. After trying all kinds of herbal medications, I decided that I could no longer tolerate the Tamoxifen medication that I had been prescribed.

In August this year I began a course of acupuncture at St Luke’s, with Acupuncturist Emma Guy. At this time I felt very down and desperate to find a treatment for the hot sweats. I had 6 treatments after which the hot sweats decreased significantly and I was able to get some sleep. After a couple more treatments the hot sweats completely stopped and for the first time in over a year, I slept for 6 hours. Since then I have continued to sleep and have had no further hot sweats.

My experience of acupuncture with Emma has been amazing, throughout the course she has reassured me and supported me through various set backs due to my treatment regime. I am going to continue to have acupuncture with Emma as I when I require it, to keep the hot sweats at bay. I would highly recommend Emma as a dedicated and committed acupuncturist who believes in the expert treatment she provides.
