Severe osteoarthritic pain, IBS and circulation

"Exceptionally helpful. I initially came to see Lily for severe osteoarthritic pain in the joints of both big toes and pain and swelling in some finger joints. The pain in my toe joints was making walking for any distance increasingly difficult and my fingers were sore after doing any manual tasks such as gardening and cleaning. I consulted my GP who told me there was no treatment available for my condition, apart from pain killers and, if the pain became severe, surgery with no guarantee as to its success. After seeing Lily, my quality of life improved almost immediately with a noticeable reduction in pain and discomfort. I no longer experience any pain at all in my fingers, even after intensive manual tasks. As far as my toe joints are concerned, I walk for long distances with absolutely no pain and have been able to enjoy and fully participate in a dancing class and in three dedicated walking holidays (5 - 8 miles per day for 5 days) during the last 18 months, with a further one planned for May this year. Lily also treats me now for an IBS related condition and for my circulation, both of which have been improved. I have excellent levels of energy and stamina, sleep well and my immune system has been strengthened. I continue to have a 'maintenance treatment' every 8 weeks which keeps me in very good health. Since acupuncture is now available for some conditions through the NHS, I hope more people will be able to benefit from it in coming years. I firmly believe that if acupuncture was offered as an alternative to conventional drugs and pain relief prescriptions, it would improve the quality of life for thousands of people as it has absolutely no side effects."

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

"I've experienced problems with my stomach for a few years and was diagnosed with IBS. I'’d found it difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is that worsens the symptoms of IBS so when someone recommended I try acupuncture, I contacted Lily. I'’ve also had problems with my sinuses and nosebleeds for about 8 years so I decided to try acupuncture to see if improvements could also be made in this area.

My acupuncture treatments (together with Moxibustion) started off on a weekly basis and improvements were definitely seen with my stomach problems. In terms of my sinuses, I was told the problem was likely to be structural by my doctor so although this couldn'’t be treated as such, the nosebleeds stopped completely with Lily'’s treatments!

As well as the acupuncture, Lily also gave me suggestions to improve my lifestyle and diet and has taught me to relax more- which helps ease my IBS symptoms.

The treatments are performed very professionally and with a lot of care, and the environment in the room is very relaxed and peaceful. Overall, I would highly recommend Lily to anyone in terms of both her professional and personal skills. The whole experience is made relaxing and enjoyable by Lily as well as helping with your health issues. Thank you Lily!"

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

"I had read about Chinese medicine and after speaking with Lily and finding out that she specialised in my condition, I decided to try it for my IBS which I had been suffering from for 4 months.

Lily gave me Acupuncture and Moxibustion treatments for my condition and I experienced pain relief and a calming effect which also relieved the stress of my condition. The moxibustion proved to be very effective."
