GinSen Clinic - Kensington

15 Kensington Church St, Kensington, London W8 4LF, UK – 020 7937 7968

Lily (the Founder of GinSen) is deeply intuitive with many, many years of expertise and knows exactly what you need to move forward. I went to visit her struggling with my energy in the first trimester of pregnancy. She took a quick look at my tongue, eyes, and took my pulse and devised a plan to sort me out, blending herbs with acupuncture and other lifestyle changes (for example not walking around barefoot!). Within a fortnight my energy was back, my tongue and eyes had brightened and I was no longer feeling nauseous and achy all the time. Thank you Lily!

The specialists in GinSen are very helpful. They have suggested me to take herbal medicines as well as to have acupuncture sessions in order to help me improve my health. I was feeling tired all the time last year, after following the instructions of the specialists, I feel much better these days. Also, my hands and feet were cold most of the time and after taking the herbal medicines as well as the treatment, they are not cold anymore. I highly recommend GinSen for people who want to try alternative way in improving their health.

London Acupuncture Clinic - Chiswick Branch

The Hogarth Club, 1A Airedale Ave, Chiswick, London W4 2NW, UK – 020 8742 7423

I decided at the beginning of last year to start fertility treatment at Hammersmith Hospital. I was determined to give myself the best possible chance of success and went to the London Acupuncture Clinic as soon as I started treatment and continued with regular appointments throughout my pregnancy. This proved to be absolutely the right choice as it made all the difference to my experience and ultimate success. Not only did my health and general well-being improve dramatically, I am sure that without these sessions I would not have conceived as quickly or have had such a healthy pregnancy. I now have a very happy and healthy baby boy and can't thank Mihaela and the team enough!

Now 4 months pregnant I can only thank these guys for all their support and care over the tough months of going through IVF. I saw Rebecca and her knowledge and understanding of the process of IVF made the whole thing more bearable. I had two cycles without acupuncture and I would recommend anyone struggling through IVF to get acupuncture with it and can't recommend this clinic highly enough.

GinSen Clinic - Chelsea

I have been to this clinic for my headache. Doctor suggested Acupuncture, massage and herbal medicine. i tried one session of each treatment rather than paying a lot money for something i don't know if it is working for me or not. However, after the acupuncture and 60 minutes massage, i felt much much better. it is amazing. i definitely will come back to continue my treatment. Thank you to Doctor and my massage therapist. very helpful!

Hautman Homeopathy

82 York Street, London, Marylebone W1H 1QP, UK – 07766 057823

I had aroma touch therapy with Jenny and It was such an uplifting experience. Highly recommended!

Jenny has helped my 85 year old mother immeasurably with repeated urinary tract infections and bladder inflammation. After trying many different ways to manage this problem, I took mum to Jenny who prescribed a remedy that had a powerful effect. Over a period of a few months, each time Jenny advised mum to take the remedy there was a positive change in her symptoms and the most recent time has resulted in her becoming symptom free. Mum has been in a cycle of either infection or inflammation for 5 years without respite so being completely symptom-free is something of a RESULT! Jenny also prescribed a particular aromatherapy oil blend for when mum gets distressed (she is of an age when her friends are regularly getting sick and dying which she finds very upsetting). I wasn't sure whether mum would use it but she has and told me that she finds it very comforting to put some on her forehead at night and that it helps her to sleep better. So this has been hugely useful too. If you go to see Jenny you will meet someone who is kind, good humoured and very knowledgeable. She was very considerate of my mum's age and vulnerability for which I was grateful. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Yunji Chinese Medicine

4 Charleville Rd, Hammersmith, London W14 9JL, UK – 020 7835 5500

Was feeling really weak, sick. The doctor was professional, patient (i don't speak English very well); her remedy was very helfpul.

Dr Wu runs an amazing practice. She is incredibly knowlegeable, and works wonders by combining accupuncture and herbs. Her prices are also astonishingly reasonable. The accupuncture and herbs that she supplied to me worked wonders on the condition I wanted addressed. I am therefore a very satisfied customer, and would happily recommend her to all my friends and family.
