Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME)

"Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as ME) has been part of my life for over 10 years and I’d recently had a pretty bad spell with a complete depletion of energy levels, poor sleep, headaches and digestive problems. Lily had been recommended to me by a friend and I was keen to try anything that would be able to offer me relief from any of my symptoms.

I received acupuncture treatments over the course of three months and began to notice gradual improvements in my wellbeing. My energy levels were more stable – I still had my low days (it’s all a rollercoaster ride!) but generally, they were levelling out a lot more and I was starting to find myself being able to plan things in advance because I knew I would be able to have enough energy for the day. My sleep was also less disturbed and less restless and my anxiety levels stabilised a lot more.

For me, the changes were slow but definitely present and I still come to Lily for occasional sessions just to check on how things are going. Lily is a very caring and attentive practitioner - I am so glad my friend passed me her number! I would not hesitate to recommend Lily to other CFS/ME sufferers or others seeking acupuncture treatments."
