Acupuncture

Kay Hay Chinese Acupuncture

The Old George Brewery, Rollestone Street,, Salisbury SP1 1DX, UK – 07882 793528

Brilliant treatment. My first experience of acupuncture, I didn't know what to expect but Kay took her time to explain everything and it was amazingly pain free. No hesitation in recommending.

Kay is a wonderful practitioner who approached my problems in a very holistic way, taking time to not just treat the symptoms but to try and get to the bottom of where the problems originate. The acupuncture sessions themselves are wonderfully relaxing - the Moxa is my favourite!

The Fine Balance

Unit 22, Portway Business Centre, Old Sarum, Salisbury SP4 6QX, UK – 07817 251075

The Fine Balance definitely deserves 5 stars - I have never considered acupuncture before, however after running a half marathon in October last year my knees were painful after any running, even if it was just a short distance and flat surface. I didn't want to accept that 'this was it', so sought further advice and booked in for 4 sessions with Anita. I am truly amazed at the results - I am aware that I may need a further 'top up' treatment in case any discomfort returns, however I have just completed a run including a hill (something I would never have done a couple of months ago knowing the pain it would cause), and I have had no pain. Anita is an open, friendly and approachable person, and is very empathetic to your needs and feelings. I can whole heartily recommend Anita at The Fine Balance.

Acupuncture was suggested to me whilst I was pregnant to help with the sickness i was suffering from. As I was reluctant to take any drugs, it seemed to be the perfect solution! The treatments I received from Jack helped me immensely. I went from suffering with daily sickness and constant nausea to finally having days where I felt ‘normal’ and could eat properly again. After each treatment these days became more frequent, until the sickness finally went. I continued with acupuncture which I believed helped me to maintain my ‘healthy’ pregnancy. I found that acupuncture eased other pregnancy related issues I was experiencing, in particular heartburn which became a real struggle as my pregnancy progressed. Throughout Jack was always happy to explain everything and answer any questions I had, always putting my mind and ease and making sure I was fully informed at all times. I would highly recommend the fine balance to anyone seeking an acupuncturist, but in particular I would urge anyone who is pregnant and unsure of whether acupuncture is for them to try it. Whilst I was sick I found it hard to enjoy my pregnancy, however I can honestly say that Acupuncture changed this for me! I have experienced first hands the real benefits acupuncture can offer.
