I first met Catherine Peake in June 2015, when I was referred for acupuncture by my Pain Consultant, for help with severe pain and lack movement in my right arm, due to a tumour and the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.  From the very first session I had a reduction in pain and slight increase in movement.  This continued over the 6 prescribed sessions, and once they had finished, I decided to see Catherine in a private capacity.  I now have weekly sessions of Acupuncture, Reiki and Chinese massage.  This has resulted in a huge improvement in movement and dexterity in my right arm and hand, and I no longer take pain killers –  which at one time included oral morphine.

Catherine is a great listener, thoughtful and kind.  She is an expert practitioner, and has made suggestions throughout my treatment, tailored exactly to my needs.  My sessions are an important part of my life, and have enhanced it greatly.  I thoroughly recommend treatment from Catherine, and cannot thank her enough.

I was recommended Acupuncture by my Mum, who had used it in the past for a different issue. After suffering with extreme morning sickness, to the point of not being able to go into work, I was willing to try anything.

Instantly upon meeting Cath, she was extremely friendly, warm and reassuring. She put my mind at ease immediately and made me feel “normal” for the way I was feeling.

I was sceptical at first, having never tried anything like this before, but it is relatively pain free and quite a relaxing experience.

Cath explained what she was going to do and why. So every time she placed a needle, I knew it was coming and I knew why it was there and what she was hoping to achieve by it.

It doesn’t hurt. You may feel a sharp pin prick the first time you attend, but after that, nothing. Afterwards, I felt flushed and tired, but in a nice relaxed way.

I started with two sessions per week, and I honestly think the sessions help to ease my morning sickness. So much so that when I missed a week once, I knew straight away, as I felt lethargic and sick immediately, as though my body was telling me I needed a top up.

It didn’t cure my morning sickness completely, but it helped manage it to a point where instead of being sick all day, every day, I was sick, maybe once in the day, which was a huge improvement, and helped me to lead a more normal life.

Quickly I dropped down to once a week and now do not need it at all.

Cath helped me during a time that was very distressing, worrying and wearing on my mind and body. I felt cared for and looked after during each session and I will always be grateful to Cath for helping me through this difficult time. I would have no hesitation in contacting Cath for acupuncture in the future should I have any other medical or lifestyle issues, as I 100% support and believe in its benefits.

For over a year I had been really struggling with anxiety symptoms that were having an impact on my day to day life.

I was feeling really drained and fatigued, having light headed dizzy spells, racing thoughts in the mornings, heart palpitations and sometimes panic attacks.

I had been to the doctors several times, tried a lot of lifestyle changes, had hypnotherapy, had holidays but nothing was controlling the symptoms.

Then I did some further research and heard about acupuncture, so I decided to give it a try and immediately I felt calmer and more relaxed than I had for a long time just after the first session.

I have had about 4 or 5 sessions now and I feel virtually back to normal, I have less fatigue feel a lot more relaxed and calm I don’t have light headed dizzy spells at all anymore.

I would highly recommend acupuncture to anyone who is suffering with anxiety, it’s been by far the most effective treatment I have had.

Also Cath who has been treating me has been very good, I would highly recommend her to anyone.

HOT FLUSHES!! – having gone down the usual route for menopausal hot flushes I tried Red Clover which worked for a while but eventually had to give in and see my GP to ask to go on to HRT. This works but obviously there is a time limit that the medical profession like you to adhere to and I came off the HRT in the spring of this year, 2015. I did this with trepidation as the hot flushes were ruining my life with being constant in the day and then having the night sweats. This meant that I was getting very little sleep, meaning that I could not function properly at work during the day. I did not want to return to this state of affairs and had heard that acupuncture could be used with excellent results. My hot flushes returned, along with the night sweats, a few weeks after coming off the HRT.

I went along to see Catherine. After just 2 sessions my symptoms were virtually non-existent. I was still getting some hot flushes – approximately 1 per week along with a few nights sweats. I thought maybe this was as good as it got – this was very good in my eyes – but Cath said we could persevere to get a better outcome. A few more sessions and she seemed to find the right combination of pressure points that controlled my flushes and brought them down to NIL.

This is a fabulous outcome and I cannot thank her enough. Hot flushes are very debilitating and affect your daily life. Life without them is fabulous. I cannot recommend acupuncture and Cath highly enough – thank you.

Being a needle phobic, I wasn’t sure what help this would be to me. Catherine has been fantastic, my breathing was wheezy when I started and lots of fatigue. After a few sessions my breathing was back to normal (the doctor couldn’t get things working properly) so this was huge, I started to sleep properly, energy levels raised and feeling brighter all round. I suggest anyone gives it a go, Catherine is fantastic!

Hi Clare, just wanted to let you know that my son started boxing training last Tuesday, did his school dance show thurs/fri, half hour of football training on Friday and played 50 mins in a very competitive footy game on Sunday. Said he only felt a very slight twinge after game and that’s it, been fine since. If you had asked me could he have done that a week last Sunday, I would have said not a chance so either a miraculous recovery or it is the acupuncture and exercises, most likely the latter 🙂 Thank you, I have a happy boy again 🙂 PS I have referred a mate and his daughter to you for same problem. No offence, but hope not to see you too soon 🙂

I contacted Emma to ask for her help at the start of 2014. I work in a high-pressure, demanding job and was already being treated by a counsellor to help resolve issues I had with anxiety, stress and mild depression. Physically, I was suffering from chronic tension-type headaches that persisted even though I had started to feel better emotionally. I had refused to use drugs to manage my symptoms, so was open to the possibility of accessing an alternative therapy to accompany the cognitive changes I was making with the counsellor’s guidance. It’s proven to be one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long while.
Emma’s approach is exactly what I’d been seeking; her compassion, empathy and knowledge immediately made me feel assured. As somebody who is often insistent about understanding how something works, she was more than happy to explain the theories and – importantly, the practical application – behind what she is attempting to achieve. The results have been exceptional, and I credit Emma unconditionally for that! She is able to transmit the faith she has in what she does to me with an ease that I still find a bit mind-blowing.
The headaches have all but cleared, and I am able to approach each day with so much more clarity and focus than I’d been able to previously. Acupuncture has been a complement to talking therapy for me, but an absolutely essential one in assisting me to make the positive progress I have craved following the most challenging time – personally and professionally – I’ve known in my lifetime.

I began treatment with Emma after 2 and 1/2 years of unsuccessfully trying for a baby.

My husband and I were having lots of tests and it was a very stressful and emotionally draining time. I was diagnosed with a low egg count and husband with a low sperm count and were being referred for IVF.
I wanted help to feel less stressed and stop obsessing about becoming pregnant but also to try everything I could to get pregnant naturally before receiving medical intervention so I began treatment with Emma at the beginning of 2013.
Emma was professional, warm and caring, she took the time to listen and understand. She put me at ease straight away and gave me confidence that she could help me but never gave me any false promises.
After each session I felt incredibly relaxed, I felt less stressed and was sleeping better. Emma also gave me Moxa, a traditional Chinese medicine to use in between sessions on my myself and my husband.
By February my menstrual cycle, which had previously been very erratic and with very heavy painful periods, regulated and were no longer heavy or painful. As they were regular I could also predict when I may ovulate and so by the beginning of April I was pregnant!
I continued seeing Emma throughout my pregnancy, she helped with my morning sickness, swollen feet, tiredness and kept me relaxed throughout. If it were not for Emma I would not have my beautiful little boy.
Emma is nurturing and supportive but with a wealth of knowledge and expertise and I have no hesitation in recommending her as an acupuncturist.

I started with hot flushes after having chemo therapy for breast cancer. My experience of acupuncture with Emma has been surprisingly 100% successful! I cannot recommend acupuncture and her services highly enough. I will continue with acupuncture now for different health issues now experiencing the benefits as well as the overall well being I will get.
