Acupuncture

Headingley & Leeds Acupuncture

15 Monkbridge Terrace, Meanwood, Leeds LS6 4HW, UK – 07809 447596

I've got to be honest, I used to wonder why people paid money to have needles stuck in them! However, acupuncture worked on several friends of mine who all had different problems and I thought I would give it a try following months of feeling anxious and stressed. It has worked wonders and although I do feel anxious now and again (after all, it's part of life), I do feel more able to cope and through Therese have learned the importance of good sleep and relaxation. Therese clearly knows her subject, is very professional and friendly and offers sound advice regarding lifestyle and diet. I think she's fantastic and offers a service that I have found invaluable. I now intend to carry on with acupuncture sessions as a "top up" maybe once or twice a year and would highly recommend Therese if you are considering acupuncture!

Therese is amazing! Her acupuncture practice has been fantastic and helped me greatly. She is a wonderfully perceptive practitioner and I very much enjoyed my sessions with her. Therese was able to make me feel relaxed and at ease. She is a great listener and exceptionally skilled and experienced acupuncturist. I recommend her heartily.

Natural Healthcare Clinic

Broomfield, Leeds LS16 6AF, UK – 07918 520256

I had a few treatments at this clinic and was always very impressed. The therapist is very professional, gives attention to every detail. There is a variety of treatments offered and the therapist chooses a combination of treatments to suit best your needs. It is very easy to find the clinic, and it has its own parking. The area is very quiet. The treatment room is spacious, overlooking a garden, warm and welcoming.

Katia is a true profession who has an amazing understanding of pain having suffered this herself. When I first visited Katia I had suffered pain for many years, during which time I had lost count of the doctors I had seen trying to find relief or a cure for this. After my visit to her clinic it was like a breath of fresh air, Katia not only understood the symptoms of the pain I was having but she also had the treatment which controlled and eliminated the pain to a level I didn't have for years. I would return home to the UK and without Katia treatments life would have been a return to the bad days of constant high pain, thanks to katia the bad days were little to none . For anyone suffering pain I would recommend you visit Katia in her clinic, you will struggle to find anyone with her knowledge of pain relief and professionalism in this country. If you have tried the rest, now visit the best, you wont regret it

Fusion Therapy

Nick was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about massage therapies. I would definitely reccomedend Nick to anyone.

I cannot praise Nick enough for his outstanding service. I require regular therapy to enable me to manage my complex medical needs and to maintain my personal choices in regards to my physical presentation. Following a session I am always left with the major benefit of experiencing far less pain, not in need of analgesics, feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, and glamorous as I've always taken great pride in.

Lifesavers. I hurt my lower back putting bicycles on a bike rack. I got an appointment quickly and had a significant improvement almost immediately. After just a few treatments I was pain free. I now have exercises to follow to help stop it recurring. Very friendly. I would strongly recommend them! I have since taken both my daughters for treatment there. They are both active Gymnasts and pick up little niggles

As someone with hypermobility who has managed to injure herself regularly I have been visiting physiotherapists and osteopaths on and of for most of my adult life with mixed results. And then I discovered Nicola! On several occasions over the past few years Nicola has been able to move me from despair to a pain free state in a way that no one has ever been able to duplicate and with a very gentle holistic approach.
