Acupuncture

Bristol Acupuncture Practice

The Centre for Whole Health, 12 Victoria Pl, Bristol BS3 3BP, UK – 0117 924 5842

I visited Deb for acupuncture in relation to stress and helping with fertility. I have never had acupuncture before and am not fond of needles however Deb was great and put me at ease from the first session. I saw a real improvement in my anxiety levels over the course of 4 sessions and really enjoyed the experience. I've now moved cities so couldn't continue visiting but would thoroughly recommend if anyone is considering acupuncture.

I had several sessions of acupuncture with Al following an operation. This helped me recover from the temporary physical paralysis and the mental stress at the time. Now I am fully recovered and very grateful to have discovered acupuncture in this way!

Gemma Alexander Acupuncture

11 Beaconsfield Rd, Bristol BS4 2JE, UK – 07967 750020

I’ve been seeing Gemma for years and she’s always been there to help me; chronic pain (endometriosis), helping with ferlitily and pregnancy. Not only is the treatment itself wonderful, she is a kind and caring person who makes you feel at ease and well looked after. Simply speaking to her every week is like therapy! Acupuncture itself is very relaxing. I have found it extremely effective for managing pain, balancing my hormones and dealing with stress. I would (and often do) highly recommend acupuncture to everyone, but particularly acupuncture with Gemma!!!

This was my first experience of acupuncture and I was quite nervous, but Gemma put me at ease straight away and gave me a brilliant treatment that made me feel great. I'll definitely be going back to her. Highly recommended.

Alex Turner Acupuncture & Shiatsu @ Lam Rim Bristol Buddhist Centre

12 Victoria Pl, Bristol BS3 3BP, UK – 07748 068360

Alex is a very compassionate practitioner who listened fully, and gave a great treatment, leaving me feeling supported and much brighter than when I arrived. My symptoms shifted very quickly during and after the session. I'd really reccomend his treatments

Alex's Turner's shiatsu's are 'en pointe'. Maybe because he's an acupuncturist as well, his treatments are clear, focussed and precise at the same time as giving me the feeling I'm being taken care of. He knows exactly what needs work and I always leave feeling nourished and restored. You know you are in safe hands with Alex.
