Acupuncture and Massage Treatment Testimonial – Jessica Cook – 2011

The first time that I came to see Maria in 1997, I had been suffering with an ME type illness for approximately a year. I was sleeping up to 22 hours a day, weighed just under 8 stone and was in almost constant pain.
After my first session of a combination of acupuncture and massage I went home and as usual slept. However on waking it was the first time in over a year that I didn’t wake up feeling exhausted. I continued to see Maria and within 6 months I had managed to get married and was back working full time.
I had tried everything else both traditional and alternative and Maria’s treatment was the only thing that worked for me. I honestly don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t decided to go and see her, I was at the end of my tether, I cannot thank her enough for literally giving me my life back.

We moved away from Cheltenham, and I forgot about acupuncture.
After suffering 5 miscarriages, I remembered the power of acupuncture and I went to see Maria in 2007.  Within two treatments I was pregnant with Otto who is now 4. I went back before attempting to get pregnant again and within five treatments was pregnant with Freddie. I have no doubt in my mind that Maria’s treatments helped my boys into this world.

I have continued to see Maria for Tuina and Acupuncture on and off for 11 years. She is always intuitive, attentive and thorough. The results have always been fantastic, sometimes shockingly so.

I once went to see her after falling from a horse and damaging my ankle. I was carried in but I left on my own two feet.

I cannot recommend her highly enough, I am in no doubt that her treatments have improved the quality of my life. I really can’t thank you enough Maria. I dread to think where I would be if I hadn’t come to see you all those years ago.

Lots of love and gratitude!!

Claire Otter – August 2014
Acupuncture has made me feel like myself again.

I have been going to Maria for about half a year now, it has been the best decision I have made regarding my health. I suffered from stress, anxiety and panic attacks after an incident in the workplace. It was suggested by my Dr to see a councillor, which was unfortunately unsuccessful in helping. The next step was medication which definitely helped but I couldn’t wean myself off it. I needed something else that would keep me calm and support me in some way. I didn’t know what acupuncture would do for me but I thought I would try it as I just wanted to feel normal again.

To my surprise and delight, only a few months on I am back to my old self! I have completely and successfully come off my antidepressants, I no longer have anxiety/ palpitations and I live every day as me, not as someone struggling through each day pretending to cope- I’m now coping amazingly well, I feel calm, life is happy again and I am so thankful to Maria for her skills, warmth and kindness. I don’t just get acupuncture when I go to Maria, I get someone who cares about me and what’s going on with my life. I feel completely at ease and know that I’m in good hands; Maria is especially understanding as I’m somewhat squeamish with regard to the needles! Thank you, Maria for everything.

Thanks, Claire Otter – August 2014

Michael Mcgonagle – 2004

I rode as a professional jockey in Ireland and England. I injured my back in 1995.  I saw lots of different specialists, I was in a lot of pain,  the end result  was going to be an invasive operation.   I discovered Tui Na and Acupuncture and they turned my life around………..
