I really can’t thank Joan enough for getting me through the last few years.
I first met Joan in 2006 when I had been struggling with the 3,679 different
symptoms of the menopause (ok, slight exaggeration) for a couple of years and
had just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I remember bursting into tears when
I heard this kind voice saying “don’t worry we’ll get this sorted”. She had to treat
me sitting in a chair as there was no chance of my endeavouring to get up on her ‘table’ – so we both knew it was not going to be a quick fix.
I had been suffering from fibromyalgia (undiagnosed) for a few years, so it really
had a grip on me when I first started the acupuncture sessions with Joan and it
did take a while to improve, especially as this was alongside all my menopausal symptoms.
On my part, I think I have been a very thoughtful and generous client. Every
time Joan manages to get me back to rude health, I come up with something
new to challenge her.
As I think I am nearing the end of the menopause and the acupuncture has
helped to alleviate many of the symptoms and my fibromyalgia has completely disappeared, I decide to go and get breast cancer.
Again, I can’t believe how supportive Joan was to me during this time as I found
the chemotherapy in particular really awful and quite scary. The fact that Joan
is a qualified nurse and worked for many years in the NHS in the UK meant that
she understood the whole medical process I was going through. She even visited
me at home for acupuncture sessions when the chemotherapy was really bad.
I am writing this in November 2013 and feel I have got most of my energy back
since my breast cancer treatment during 2010.
I still see Joan regularly as I do have ongoing little things to keep on top of –
vertigo, arthritic knees, diverticulitis and, of course, general aches and pains from sitting in front of a computer all day. As I am now in my ‘60s, I have to accept
that the arthritis is probably a ‘keeper’ but acupuncture does help with the pain
and I enjoy my visits with Joan and would recommend her skills as an experienced acupuncturist unreservedly.

Following 3 devastating miscarriages I met with Joan after getting her
number from a friend. Joan was compassionate and understanding, while
being absolutely pragmatic and knowledgable. Each time I left a session
with her I was a bit calmer, a bit stronger and more confident. Within
months I fell pregnant with a strong, amazing baby girl!!
I had a wonderful pregnancy and labour. I look back on this time with huge
gratitude and optimism for any woman who is having difficulty conceiving or
sustaining a pregnancy.Janet (Nov 2013)

I started attending Joan in the summer of 2011 after two pregnancy losses.
I decided to try acupuncture to boost my fertility but it did so much more
than that. The treatments were invaluable to me. Joan helped me in so many
ways to boost my fertility and most importantly to overcome my fears and
help me to believe that I would have a baby when the time was right. I
became pregnant when receiving treatment and continued to attend Joan
throughout my pregnancy which I considered to be a vital part of my ante
natal care. I recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and honesty
believe that my treatments with Joan really helped to bring this about and
I cannot thank her enough. Joan is an excellent listener and I always feel
lighter physically and emotionally after my treatments with her. I could
not recommend her strongly enough.

I first received treatment from Joan over three years ago to help me deal
with pregnancy related issues. During the time since then I have had to
deal with some traumatic experiences in my life. The sessions with Joan
have been invaluable in helping me get my life back on track.
Most recently I was suffering from back pain as a side effect of
pregnancy. After just one session with Joan the results were remarkable, I
have not even felt a slight twinge of pain since
If you are in need of acupuncture treatments I cannot recommend Joan highly
enough.

I had a total knee replacement and subsequently, as was to be expected, had considerable swelling of the knee joint and calf muscle. After a few sessions with Joan the swelling was greatly reduced and I have no doubt that the treatment was a huge factor in reducing the swelling, controlling my pain and speeding up my overall recovery.Joan is an extremely caring and competent practitioner and I have no reservation in actively encouraging anyone in the same position to seriously consider a course of treatments with her.David 2011

Five years and I'am still with Joan.She is an excellent acupuncturist and a great psychologist, as well. Not alone do I feel well after a session but I come away as though I learned somthing. She has been a great friend too. She goes that extra yard to meet you without getting bogged down in trivia.I look forward to every session. Ian Douglas 2012.

Joan is an excellent clinician and a very intuitive practitioner. Her loyal client group is a testament to the quality of her work.J Oliver, Physiotherapist and Owner, Holistic Health, London

Joan established an Acupuncture clinic at Athena Medical Centre (an NHS Practice) from 1997 to 2002. Her management of clients was productive, professional and cost effective. She would be an asset to any team.Dr Okoreaffia.

I have been a patient of Joan's since 1995.Acupuncture was very much the last resort for me as I had been suffering from severe long term depression and had failed to find more than temporary relief from other therapies. Whilst i felt good after my first acupuncture it is extremely relaxing it took a further six sessions for the effect to really kick in. I continue to have Acupuncture as I feel it keeps me grounded and is a great tonic when I am going through patches of feeling low or tired. This has constituted a major change in my life and it is an understatement to say that i am extremely pleased with the results. Julie

Since the start of the course of treatment, my shoulder pain and my chronic tennis elbow complaint have both shown remarkable improvement to the point where I feel that i almost cured. When the doctor first suggested Acupuncture, I knew very little about it and indeed i was somewhat apprehensive. But thanks to your kindness and gentleness, I was able to overcome my fears, and I am now all the better for it. Thanks again for all your help. B. Bhose
