Acupuncture

Contemporary Chinese Therapy - Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine

Contemporary Chinese Therapy, 43 Victoria Rd, Surbiton KT6 4JL, UK – 020 8390 0500

Ever since coming to this place I have been positively impressed. Lili has helped me so much first with a really painful shoulder problem and then with long-lasting lower back pain. I really don’t know what I would have done without the help I found here. The combination of massages and acupuncture did wonders to relieve my problems and really helped my overall well-being. I was especially reluctant to believe in acupuncture to start with and quite scared of needles but Caroline works miracles with them. The practice always tries to accommodate appointments to help as quickly as possible and I was truly amazed to see the recent negative review which clearly must have been for a different place altogether. I warmly recommend the Surbiton Chinese Contemporary medicine practice opposite Sainsbury’s.

I was desperately suffering with eczema which refused with steroids and steroid creams to budge. A symptom of all the steriods was constipation. I heard about Caroline and her team and booked an appointment. Caroline was very through and gave me lots of advice on my diet and how to change my life to better suit my skin. I’ve since had three sessions of medical accupuncture and massage with Joy, Alice and Lilly and I’m already seeing positive results. I’ve stopped the steriods. Caroline has created a great all girl team in Surbiton, they are all interested and keen to help people feel better and move away from prescription medicine. I wholeheartedly recommend Caroline and her team to anyone who is looking for an alternative to western medicine. Oh and they all speak excellent English.

Olivia Shaw Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine

14 Claremont Rd, Surbiton KT6 4QU, UK – 07914 852435

I started treatment with Olivia in May 2005 because I have rheumatoid arthritis which affects every joint in my body and the pain and discomfort can be very severe which only strong medication can help and even then not very much and not without some horrible side effects. Olivia has helped relieve my condition enormously; I have been able to cut my medication by half since seeing her. Olivia takes pride in her work and is extremely dedicated to helping people; she really listens to everything you say - with no judgement of life style choices. Olivia has never ending patience in wanting to help and keeps working until she sees a positive result in her treatment. I would never hesitate in recommending Olivia.

I would recommend Olivia in a heartbeat. She is a highly dedicated, experienced & caring acupuncturist, who really listened to me before carefully assessing my condition. In my particular case, she helped to regulate & to calm my very heavy & uncomfortable periods. Her treatments are relaxing, & more importantly very effective.

Surrey Acupuncture Clinic

6 Electric Parade, Surbiton KT6 5NT, UK – 07808 938223

Despite being sceptical I decided to try acupuncture after 3 years of unexplained secondary infertility. Nuala was great and provided lots of dietary and health advice as well as relaxing acupuncture sessions. She was also a great listener and made me feel supported (sub-fertility can be a lonely journey). In just a few months I finally got pregnant! Definitely recommend Nuala for helping me complete my family.

I went to see Nuala for treatment of Bell’s Palsy. Nuala is professional, knowledgeable, warm and welcoming. She is caring and always makes the time to listen. I would highly recommend her services.

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!

Dr Ryu Clinic

Unit 4, St.Georges Court, St.Georges Square, New Malden KT3 4HG, UK – 020 8241 7361

Dr. Ryu is gentle, soothing and very patient, and her treatment is very effective. I have seen many chiropractors and acupuncturist for my shoulder and neck problem for a long time. However, Dr. Ryu's treatment is amazing. My shoulder problem improves right away. The pain decreased and my shoulder and neck regain mobility. I will highly recommend Dr. Ryu to anyone who is suffering from shoulder and neck pain!!!

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.
