“Having tried every avenue to alleviate a long term health issue, 6 months ago I decided to try acupuncture. Richard is a kind, skilful, dedicated practitioner, who listens attentively and clearly communicates all his treatment decisions. He works with patience and a truly supportive, caring manner, providing additional insights into his practice and offering helpful dietary and exercise advice. I feel so lucky to have found him – I genuinely cannot recommend him highly enough.”
“Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) can be very uncomfortable for 12-18 months. Although it’s a self limiting condition, which does get better, I had some osteopathic treatment (using the Simeon Niel Asher Technique) followed by some acupuncture with Richard. As an osteopath myself, I knew how to treat the condition but I reached a plateau at the end. The acupuncture with Richard really helped my shoulder go from about 70% better to 100% better with no discomfort at all and I regained a full range of movement. The treatment was gentle and effective. I am delighted to be able to recommend Richard.”

“I am so grateful for the treatment I received which has been very successful. I was in a great deal of pain and had tried everything under the sun to stop it, finally turning to Richard. His professional approach and obvious knowledge put my mind at rest immediately and his positive attitude to my problem was a major force in my rehabilitation. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
“I had pain in my lower back caused by repetitive lifting of heavy loads whilst doing my job. This also caused walking and standing to be painful and produced constipation.
Previously my wife had used acupuncture for pain relief caused by a slipped spinal disc with amazing results so I was confident to try acupuncture myself.
After 6 appointments of acupuncture and massage my symptoms had greatly reduced. Richard is very professional, patient and explained his procedures in an understandable way so no nasty surprises!!
I now have no pain in back, walk more confidently and back to normal for digestion… I am now able to continue lifting heavy items at work without problems.”
“After some bad experiences at other clinics I was delighted to find Richard… He was very personable and always had time to sit and talk about how I had been since the last session. I feels he genuinely cares about his clients and this comes across in his attentiveness and the time he puts into each session. He really helped me cope with debilitating chronic pain and health conditions and helped to picked me up at my lowest points.
Richard always seems to be developing his skills and expertise – I have seen many practitioners over the years and I’ve found the best ones are those that regularly attend further training.
I also attended a qi gong beginners course taught by Richard and regular classes. I would highly recommend him for both acupuncture and Qi Gong. Thank you Richard for your time and support over the years.”
“I came to see Richard as my holistic doctor suggested that acupuncture may help my immune system. In the initial consultation Richard took details of my health, lifestyle, diet which would help him decide on treatment and why he thought this would best help me. Richard’s manner was reassuring & considerate, explaining exactly what he was going to do and what I should expect. I was pleasantly surprised that the needles did not hurt as much as I feared. As a result of my weekly treatments over 6 weeks I have more energy and now manage without an afternoon sleep. I feel more relaxed and less anxious. All benefits that I did not expect acupuncture to deliver.”
