What My Clients Say

P. K. (Exhaustion & Stress)

“Acupuncture really helped me with feelings of exhaustion and stress. I had no energy which really restricted me from living everyday life and I was feeling very low and depressed. Acupuncture had a big impact on my energy levels and after a few treatments I felt full of energy and could face life again.”

Mike May (Pain Relief)

“Darren is a great acupuncturist with an excellent range of techniques. He tailors the treatment to specific needs on each visit. Darren is very professional and reliable. The style he uses instantaneously relieves the pain I experience. Darren offers lifestyle advice to improve my condition. I also have had physiokey treatments and cupping. They were both great at helping to relieve my pain.”
