Alba Acupuncture

8 Lauriston St, Edinburgh EH3 9DJ, UK – 07806 634498

Monika is a fantastic acupuncture practitioner. I have been seeing Monika regularly for acupuncture and I can't describe what a difference it has made. Not only is the acupuncture extremely effective, but she is also a very kind, caring individual who makes me feel comfortable and relaxed during the session. I highly recommend Alba Acupuncture!

I will get round to writing a longer review but for now this will have to do. Donald is by far and away the best acupuncturist I have ever come across. A very gifted and passionate practitioner who achieves real results. I cannot recommend him enough.

Naturalway Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

35 Leven St, Edinburgh EH3 9LH, UK – 0131 656 0358

Having pain in my hip due to pulled muscles and osteoarthritis which was not alleviated by medecine prescribed by my GP I was interested by an article by an ex Scotland rugby player. He said he was using crutches due to his arthritis and following treatment by Traditional Chinese Medecine he was well enough to take up running again. Intrigued I made a 400 mile round trip to Edinburgh to try TCM myself.Happily after a few treatments I am pain free and gardening and swimming again. I highly recommend Tracey at Naturalway for her effective treatment delivered in a caring profesional way,

I visited Naturalways to consider alternative therapy, for a health complaint i have had for many years, with unsuccessful management through conventional medicine. I was really pleased and surprised by the result. The herbal medicine prescribed had a quick and dramatic effect on the condition, with better result than drugs previously taken, and herbal teas have continued to improve my health since. I will be happy to come back, and recommend this practice to others. Thanks.

Graceful Change

35-37 Bread St, Edinburgh EH3 9AL, UK – 0131 229 0724

I went to see Tom originally for back pain and general anxiety that I have had for years. I had never tried acupuncture before so I was a bit nervous. He was very gentle. I cannot believe it but my back pain is completely gone! He also seems to combine his knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine and counselling as well, which has sorted me out with my stress and anxiety. More than just acupuncture, a one stop body MOT. Highly recommended.
