UNEXPLAINED INFERTILITY AND PREGNANCY SUPPORT
‘I come away from every session feeling a hundred times better and very relaxed. Vivian really takes the time to understand my overall well being and adjusts each treatment to reflect this – I would highly recommend.’
I can't recommend Vivien more highly. She is gentle and caring, an extremely well practised and well read practitioner and highly experienced.
ANXIETY DEPRESSION PREGNANCY AND POST NATAL SUPPORT
The fist time I went to see Viv for acupuncture I was suffering with depresssion. I had no energy and felt very lost and low. When I came home I found myself gardening for the first time in months! My husband looked at me and said "you keep on going to acupuncture and I will pay for it!" as he could see the change in my energy and outlook imediately. I went for 6 months and alongside personal therapy I found it helped me to find the inner resources and confidence to find my way out of a 'black hole'. Since then I have gone regularly through three pregnancies and now take my children too.
ORTHOPAEDIC PROBLEMS BEREAVEMENT AND MENOPAUSE ISSUES
Viv’s expertise, listening skills, wisdom and sensitivity have been a lifeline for me over many years. I first went to see her more than 10 years ago in a state of despair about excruciating RSI pain in my wrists, about which conventional medicine had had nothing to offer for six months. A few needles later brought intense relief. More significantly, our sessions have become a crucial part of my daily coping mechanisms. Her talents, experience and skills are incredibly multifaceted. She is not only passionate about acupuncture but she brings huge knowledge about Chinese medicine at large. This has had an incredible positive effect on many ailments, from sinusitis, orthopaedic problems and hot flushes to bereavement, stress, anxiety and serious life crises. Progressively she has trained my body and my mind to let go and respond to her gentle touch. She continues to bring me patience, inner strength, calm and well-being. Progressively she and her needles have trained my body and my mind to let go and respond to her gentle touch.
INFERTILITY IVF SUPPORT AND STRESS MANAGEMENT
I started seeing Vivien (18 months??) ago for fertility issues. Her treatments and support have helped me enormously through pre- conception, a round of IVF, my subsequent pregnancy and now post natal care and recovery. I feel better now than before I was pregnant and I'm sure it's largely thanks to the treatments I have been having with Vivien. She has also helped me with acute ailments along the way such as colds, a bad neck, sleep problems and anxiety. I find her a very calm person with whom it is easy to talk, and I feel very relaxed in her therapeutic space. Equally, I feel comfortable not talking and simply relaxing and enjoying the treatments. I highly recommend Vivien!

INSOMNIA POST MASTECTOMY SUPPORT
After my breast cancer surgery, a radiologist suggested accupuncture could help to alleviate the side effects of the medicaction that I had been prescribed. Vivien was recommended to me, and I've
now been seeing her for over three years. I value her holistic approach which takes account of my emotional and physical concerns, as well as the challenges of my daily life. The hour long
appointments are characterised by Vivien's attentiveness, and by the wonderfully tranquil environment in which she works. She has helped to alleviate my sleeping problems no end, and given me
strategies to manage other aspects of my treatment. I don't know how it works, nor do I need to: there is nothing like the deep calm - almost a feeling of floating - after a visit to see
Vivien is not only a sensitive and accomplished practitioner of acupuncture; she is also a receptive listener with a deep understanding of life. I feel focused and well for days after after a treatment from her.
I have been seeing Vivien for 9 years. She has helped me cope with and recover from a life changing illness. I am sure I would not be as well as I am today without her support. She is always calm and professional. She seems very knowledgable and always tailors the treatments depending on how I am. She has successfully treated my Mum for something completely different. She has been fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of having acupuncture.
IVF PREGNANCY AND POST NATAL SUPPORT
I have been treated by Vivien for over 3 years mostly on a weekly basis. My treatments have always been very beneficial and relaxing. She has helped me through a successful IVF cycle and subsequent pregnancy. Next to that she has treated me for my asthma and also muscular issues. Vivien is a very experienced acupuncturist and has a natural gift to understand and pick up on any underlying causes of any ailments. She takes a true interest in her patients, takes a holistic approach and uses different techniques. Vivien has been very dedicated to give me the best of care particularly during my IVF and has always gone out of her way to support me with treatments through the cycle at the right times. There are many acupuncture practitioners but only few have a true gift for this. Vivien is one of those rare practitioners and I can recommend her wholeheartedly!
A CASE OF MALE-SUB FERTILITY
I came to Vivien after being diagnosed with male fertility issues and she made me feel completely at ease. After a few months of treatment my problem improved and my wife is now pregnant. I have no doubt that this is due to the treatment I received - the acupuncture / moxa as well as the advice on lifestyle, diet etc.
