The best advertisement for acupuncture and Louise’s work are the countless happy patients that Louise treats every week. Here are a selection, in their own words…
“I came to see Louise for a second time when I was having difficulty conceiving our second child. After suffering a miscarriage, a bout of post natal depression and trying with no success to fall pregnant for over a year, I was feeling pretty low. The great thing about acupuncture is that it takes the whole person into account, not just the presenting condition. Louise spends so much time finding out about all aspects of your life which might be causing a problem. She has such a caring and attentive attitude and the sessions often felt like therapy which I emerged from feeling exhilarated and refreshed. She helped me to consider some lifestyle changes I could make to help improve my fertility and was always so positive and reassuring. I came for acupuncture sessions twice a month for seven months, all the while charting my ovulation dates and fertile times under Louise’s guidance and now I am ten weeks pregnant with my second child. I can’t thank Louise enough, she is a miracle worker!”
“Louise was a tremendous help with our journey to have a family. She supported my husband and I through two rounds of IVF. When the first round was not successful she was so supportive in helping us refocus our energies, build on the positives and prepare for the the next round which was successful! Overall I found with both rounds my body had far less difficulty with the IVF drugs than other women I talked too going through the same treatment and despite my advanced age I was very receptive to the IVF process overall and I truly believe this is due to working so closely with Louise during the whole process. Her treatment of us was professional, respectful, compassionate and deeply supportive. I truly believe that our IVF journey would not have been as positive and successful without Louise’s assistance and I would strongly recommend her to anyone going through the IVF process.”
“Last year I sustained a back injury whilst doing Aikido (martial arts). It was incredibly painful. Feeling frustrated and impatient, I wanted to do something to speed up my recovery so that I could get back to doing what I love (in the white pyjamas). I was keen to try acupuncture as I’d heard good things about it from a variety of people I know. I got in touch with Louise and booked myself an appointment. I was initially a bit scared if I’m honest about the process, which I’m sure a lot of people can relate to, but Louise put me at ease with her both friendly and professional manner. The results were amazing. After every session I could feel an instant improvement. It felt like the needles had unlocked tension and released the pain out of my back. After only few sessions, I felt nearly recovered and I was so relieved! It would have taken me considerable more time had I tried to recover without this brilliant alternative therapy. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone, and I would definitely go back if I had any other problems”
“Louise was recommended to me by a friend when I started my first cycle of IVF. She was open, friendly and had a very good understanding of the hormone treatment I was receiving. Her practice complimented each stage of the treatment by enhancing the effect of the drugs but minimising the side effects. In particular I enjoyed having time each week to focus on myself and to relax. I believe that the combination of these factors helped me to conceive first time. I now have a lovely two month old boy who is sleeping in my arms as I write this. “
“I have been to see Louise Collyer to treat two separate conditions. The first was hyperacusis where my hearing had gone crazy and every sound was overwhelming (a complication of my tinnitus I believe). When I went to the doctor I was told that they would refer me to the ENT department of the Freeman hospital but I would have to wait for about two months to see a specialist. Although I was somewhat sceptical about acupuncture beforehand, I searched on the internet out of sheer desperation, and read that it could treat the unusual condition. I booked in to see Louise and was astonished by the results. After two sessions, the incessant noises had diminished and my hearing returned to normal (albeit with the tinnitus still intact). “
I was 32 weeks when we tried the moxa. My midwife recommended I try this was as a way of unbreaching my baby girl. I had the moxa with Louise at the clinic and then repeated it at home. By the next scan at 34 weeks my baby had unbreached itself – and it stayed that way. We consequently avoided the Caesarian section I was fearing.
