"It was my dentist that first encouraged me to try acupuncture; he diagnosed me as suffering from temporomandibular joint pain after having undergone a year of intensive dental work. My face and ears constantly felt as though they were burning, my ears were ringing, sinuses blocked and my neck and jaw never stopped aching thus affecting my sleep.

After six sessions with Maddy I noticed considerable improvement, not only with the facial pain but with my PMT, travel sickness and a bundle of other things that I'd learnt to live with!

Meanwhile my GP had referred me to a specialist who diagnosed myofascial pain, he explained there was no cure and prescribed Amitriptyline; I don't like taking medication so decided to persevere with the acupuncture, my last treatment was on the 7th January 2006, I don't know what you did Maddy, it's a miracle, I'm absolutely pain free! Long may it last! "

"My GP diagnosed frozen shoulder after a kick boxing incident, I enjoy the sport but it does have it's down side; a similar injury a couple of years ago responded well to acupuncture so I thought I'd try it again.

Maddy inserted needles into my shoulder and then burnt a herb called moxa on the end of the needle; she also treated areas on my back, wrists and ankles with needles.

After five sessions the pain and mobility of my shoulder were much better, another two sessions completed the job and I'm now confidently back to my kick boxing."
