"Approximately 5-6 years ago I developed an oral Lichen Planus condition and more recently this developed into Lichen Planopilaris / Graham Little Syndrome. Predominant symptom being intense itching over the whole body. Eventual result has been loss of most body hair, loss of eyebrows and eyelashes and hair thinning on the scalp. It is not clear what caused the onset of the condition.
Additionally since childhood I have suffered from severe allergic reactions to pollen (grass/trees), moulds, dust, animal hair, insect bites etc - hayfever, urticaria, anaphyaxsis
Due to the above and the fact that I also have an under-active thyroid I decided to try acupuncture to treat the itching and potentially stimulate self heeling process. Aiming to slow down the progression of the hair loss which with Lichen Planopilaris is permanent.
The sessions I had helped initially to reduce the itching and eventually reducing it to almost nothing which reduces the reliance on the steroid treatments."

"I had one treatment of acupuncture which I thoroughly enjoyed. Lily gave me some great advice and told me other ways to address my acne, with diet mainly. The care was brilliant. Lily took the time to talk to me and told me other ways, other than acupuncture I could address my skin problems."
"I had tried herbal medicine and acupuncture some years ago and found it amazing. I was extremely grateful to Lily for helping calm down a particularly severe flare-up of eczema. Conventional medicine offered me a stronger steroid cream, with the problems inherent in that form of treatment. I rejected that course of action and sought help from Chinese herbs. It was amazing how Lily managed to keep control of the situation. Between Chinese Herbal Remedies and a deeper insight into diet, the problem has almost been solved. God bless you Lily, have recommended a friend, and many thanks."

"I'd been suffering for three months with lassitude which is a symptom of depression, and from an ongoing skin problem since 2001. Lily's credentials encouraged me to seek treatment from her.
I found the treatments tremendously restful, rejuvenating and balancing."
Miss J, Hertfordshire
"I suffer with painful and unsightly raised red lesions on my fingers which has been happening for some time now, possibly for one year plus now. I was desperate to get this treated, no doctors seemed to have any idea what it was or how to treat it. I definitely saw good results with Chinese herbs. Lily has good knowledge and a good manner - she is patient, very friendly, professional, helpful and caring too."
"I had read about acupuncture and was keen to try a natural approach to improving my skin. I wanted facial rejuvenation and wanted acupuncture to treat expression lines and to brighten complexion. I chose Lily because her website was informative and professional and she had the relevant training/qualifications.
The treatments were very relaxing. I found I looked forward to the sessions and that they were really de-stressing. I found my skin was brighter and glowed after some sessions. The facial acupressure massage is amazing!"
Miss K, 32, Tring
"I came to Lily for my skin problems as well as some sleep and digestive problems. I had had acupuncture treatments in the past and found them very helpful. The acupuncture and acupressure treatments with Lily were incredibly relaxing. They were of great benefit to my skin in improving the redness, excessive pigmentation and oilyness. My sleep and my digestion also improved."
Mrs S, 49, Tring
"For years, I had been referred back and forth across several dermatologists and specialists for a skin problem they eventually diagnosed as vitiligo, a whitening of the skin in several patches throughout my body. These patches had gotten worse over a recent period of stress and I wanted to try something natural that would help my symptoms but also help me feel less stressed. I was given Chinese herbs to boil which dramatically reduced the appearance of the white patches within 6 weeks and eventually returned the skin pigmentation to those areas! My stress levels are now much more manageable and I continue to have monthly consultations with Lily once a month. Thanks for all your help."
"My eczema has been around since birth but it had gotten particularly bad which prompted me to seek help. My skin greatly improved as a result of the acupuncture treatments with Lily. She was a great listener and gave really good advice, helping me to review my lifestyle."
