"I've found Helen to be a sympathetic, skilled practitioner with an intuitive knack of getting straight to the issue. Over the years she has helped me using a combination of acupuncture and massage, treating back pain, hormonal imbalance, headaches, skin problems and thankfully got me up and about again after injuring both knees."

If you want advice about a particular condition I'm happy to answer any queries via email or phone.
Some clients come for a short course of weekly treatments for a specific problem. Others choose to maintain their health with an extended course of treatment; often with longer intervals between sessions. Chronic (long-term) problems are usually best managed with the second approach. I'm committed to providing appropriate affordable treatment, and encourage my clients to stop or reduce the frequency of their sessions as a condition improves or a situation changes.
I began to see Helen about a year ago for debilitating pain I was experiencing in both feet. I could barely walk more than a half a mile without sharp, shooting, burning pain radiating through my feet and up both legs. To my amazement, after a few sessions with Helen I was almost pain free. More than a year later, I can walk several miles with no discomfort or pain whatsoever."
"After giving birth, I developed Bells Palsy and despite being prescribed steroids by the Dr to relieve symptoms, acupuncture was really the only thing that seemed to make any difference to the pain and level of discomfort I felt. After the treatment I was able to sleep without a continuous throbbing pain in my neck. I am also convinced that the weekly treatments with Helen helped speed up my recovery and restore movement/feeling to the left side of my face."
"I see Helen every so often for "maintenance" for the neuromas and other complaints as they arise. These acupuncture treatments have been successful in managing, among other things, back pain, cold symptoms, headaches and menstrual cramps."
