As a film editor I spend hours and days sat working in the same position which resulted in me developing painful RSI in both wrists. No amount of rest seemed to relieve it so I decided to try acupuncture as I’d always heard great things. After my initial treatment with Carmen I felt an immediate effect and after a few treatments all my discomfort had gone. No painkillers, no exercises. Couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone.


I want to thank you for bringing me back to life! The morning sickness has gone, it's been now one week since I feel better, with no nausea and actually having some energy back! I am so glad, I thought it would never end.

I also wanted to let you know that the three treatments made me feel gradually much better and that from the first one, my symptoms reduced to 50% straight away. I will definitely be back for some more treatment before the baby arrives.


For my birthday my partner treated me to an acupuncture session with Carmen. I had been suffering with high stress levels at work and was recovering from burn out. Carmen took plenty of time to dig deep into my issues so that she really understood where the problem lay. I had already experienced acupuncture in the past but she went over some of the points again explaining what she would be doing and the effects that could be anticipated.

 All I can say is what a difference an hour makes. To say that I felt relaxed when I left the studio would be an understatement. A walk that normally takes me about 20 minutes became a wonderful slow stroll through London's West End and I slept like a baby that night. It also goes without saying that despite the always slight nagging doubt that the needles might hurt I felt no unpleasantness.


I was experiencing a very difficult period in my life and was affected by a very disruptive sleep pattern and uncomfortable constipation and bloating.  Carmen treated me for both problems and I was shocked by the almost immediate effect.  My sleep became deeper and less disturbed, I felt that a weight had been lifted from my shoulders, therefore making my mood brighter.  Acupuncture is a truly marvellous alternative treatment which I would recommend to anyone, whatever their ailment.


Carmen treated me for depression and anxiety during the Autumn of 2007. I had broken up with my girlfriend and fallen straight into a very dark place. I had never really believed that acupuncture could have much effect, but was willing to try anything to to just get by. When I first went to see Carmen I hadn't slept for more than a couple of hours a night for about 3 months. Using acupuncture, Carmen helped to alleviate some of the severe anxiety I was feeling, which helped my sleep immediately. Feeling more rested also helped me to cope with the depression I was battling.

Carmen has a very calm and reassuring energy about her which in itself made me feel better and more optimistic. I know that seeing Carmen for treatment helped me immensely in coping with what felt like a a very uncopeable time in my life.
