I have been visiting Ben since I became pregnant 18 months ago. He helped me with awful nausea during my pregnancy and with the induction. Now, I see him monthly just to keep me on track and for my energy levels. I love my sessions. Thank you so much.

Ben was recommended to me by a friend who sees him regularly. I’ve been suffering from dry, sore eyes which is always worse at this time of year. Although, I was a little apprehensive and sceptical, I feel so much better even after one treatment. I’ll definitely be back.

I read that moxibustion therapy could help turn a breach baby. At 37 weeks, I was a little anxious but spoke to Ben on the phone before booking an appointment. He explained everything clearly and really helped to calm me down. The appointment was great. Ben even gave me some moxibustion to take home and detailed instructions. I was amazed that it worked after a few days. So grateful. Thankyou so much!

My treatments with Ben have been great. I feel a dramatic improvement after the last few treatments and feel his approach for me is a much more effective and powerful treatment compared to my previous acupuncture treatments. . Today I had the addition of a cupping treatment which helped loosen my back up immediately. Would highly recommend
