“From 2007 to 2010, I suffered with severe migraine headaches every 6-8 weeks. A doctor at the National Migraine Centre suggested that I try acupuncture and I first went to see Dr Alice in Oct 2009. The treatment was a great success. Initially, working with Dr Alice was a big factor in not only reducing the frequency of the attacks, but also speeding up my recovery after one. Along with some dietary changes, I believe continued therapy with Dr Alice played a significant part in my now being migraine free since Oct 2010. I still see Dr Alice every six weeks or so as a preventative measure and consider the treatments an excellent supplement for maintaining a high level of general wellbeing.”

“I like to thank Alice for changing my life, I had suffered 10 years with hair loss (alopecia) I thought there was no hope of getting my hair back when specialists advised me there wasn't anything they could do for me and it was an illness with no guarantee cure. I approached Alice though a recommendation and I couldn't believe the results, I've finally got my hair back and I'm now enjoying all the things that I've missed out on the last 10 years from wearing wigs. Alice is very professional and knowledgeable I can not praise her work and treatments enough. Thank you Alice”

“I have suffered from burning feet for ages. I couldn't sleep with the discomfort. My daughter said I should go to Alice. I was skeptical at first. However now one year later, I can say I never have burning feet any more.”
