Acupuncture

Chinese Acupuncture Kingston

Kingston upon Thames KT1 1SP, UK – 020 8546 3886

I had some sessions for shoulders here, good for acupuncture and cupping, but I don’t like the massage done by “Lee” which lead to spine pain according to the technique he used, on the other hand I had a massage with the acupuncture specialist (forgot his name) and it was great!

Suffered from a bad shoulder and back and after three sessions it was fixed. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is in any sort of pain. The decor is basic but effective.

Real Relaxation Clinic

17 High St, Whitton, Twickenham TW2 7LA, UK – 020 8894 9029

I always recommend Dr Zhang to my friends and family for alternative treatments. Acupuncture was the only form of treatment that completely stopped my sciatic pain as well as helping me with lower back pain due to a disk bulge! Even helped get rid of my sore throat and cough. Highly recommend.

Very useful healing treatment! I went with bad sinuses and completely blocked nose and face due to allergies. I already lost the hope from doctor's medication. Also I had other problems that then I didn't even think about to be helped by acupuncture. After 10 sessions it was a lovely surprise when my symptoms completely disappeared and also I was informed by my specialtist that everything is back to normal and I am healthy again! I believe in it and can only recommend - I visited the acupuncture clinic in Whitton.

The Waldegrave Clinic

82 Waldegrave Rd, Teddington TW11 8NY, UK – 020 8943 2424

I've come to this practice a number of times over the years, mainly for chiropractic treatment (back issues). Like others before him, the chiropractor I have used most recently (Marcus Higgins) is very good and allocates you a generous amount of time. He seems to be able to resolve your injuries within a few sessions and doesn't have you coming back over and over unnecessarily. He complements the treatment with advice on exercises you can do at home, thereby improving the recovery process. Very professional and achieves the results. The building itself is a good airy environment, and the reception staff is very pleasant. Only minor negative, the small-ish, individual, changing cubicles are rather odd and slightly claustrophobic.

Great chiropractor and physiotherapy practice. It is now the only place that I go to sort out my aging joints and sports injuries. Marcus has been a great chiropractor, he is very knowledge (although very young), energetic, and most important of all, passionate about what he does and helping his patients. I have had several issues in the last year - tingling fingers on my left hand, dodgy hips ...etc and Marcus has always been able to sort me out. Both my wife and I are now seeing Marcus for our issues, can’t recommend him enough.

Alternative Medicine

Golden Needle Health Care & Beauty

43 Old London Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6ND, UK – 020 3105 4906

I can't rate Dr Zhang highly enough. The magic wand that you want when you are in pain. And very professional with a gentle manner.

I have had amazing massages here. As someone with a complicated health condition, I was blown away by the medical knowledge and understanding despite the condition being quite rare. My massage was amazing and I am now a return customer!

Claudia Zanchin Medical Herbalist & Arvigo Therapy Practitioner

24 Crown Rd, St Margaret’s, Twickenham, Richmond TW1 3EE, London TW1 3EE, UK – 07733 424474

Claudia is an exceptionally gifted and powerful healer and my Arvigo sessions with her have made a huge difference to my general health and sense of well being since first seeing her over a year ago. Arvigo is a truly fantastic way to release stuck tensions old and new, both physical and emotional, and Claudia carries out this amazing massage technique with great compassion and skill, always sensitive to whatever is going on, and carries out each session with gentle calm, quiet professionalism and absolute focus. Since seeing her my back pain has vastly eased up, digestive disorders almost vanished, skin improved, hormonal balance restored and above all, have experienced a wonderful sense of positivity after each session. I recommend her highly to anyone interested in improving their health and general state of mind. Essential work for stressful 21st century living!

Claudia was so gentle and kind during our session. She made me feel confident in my ability to tackle my digestive issues. She was right! Since seeing her, my digestion has improved immensely, and I believe it is due to her nutritional help, as well as her healing hands.

Natures Medicine

8 Station Approach, Hampton TW12 2HY, UK – 020 8979 2323

Been in to see Bea to help with various sports injuries over the years. She and her team have helped me continue running and riding. My wife loves this place too. Many different treatments on offer in a relaxing space.

I have had treatments here for back pain and also more recently rent a consultation room for my counselling and psychotherapy business. Bea really knows her stuff and her grounded and empathic approach puts you at ease. I have loved the treatments I have had in the past at Nature's Medicine and more recently working with Bea.
