” Painful knees..? As we get older, it’s inevitable, isn’t it..- or can something be done?
Well, last year I complained to a friend that my knees were really sore and painful in the joints, sometimes being so bad that I found it difficult to walk around or even sit in a car for more than an hour without knee pain. This friend said that he, too, had experienced very painful knees and knee joints – until he had been for 3 or 4 sessions of acupuncture.
Now, he doesn’t suffer with knee pain any more – and I have to say that I’ve so far only had two sessions with Mandy but, well, my knees are a lot better (still not totally cured but what do you expect after just two sessions?) – so much so that I was able to stand and walk around for long periods at a recent wedding and reception my wife and I were invited to (we even danced, would you believe!)
So, I’m about to book another six sessions (have you heard about the 6 for 5 deal..?) with Mandy for the next six weeks leading up to our holiday in June, when I’m hoping to be fit and well enough to go walking (and even hiking, perhaps) through the hills of Croatia.
So if you’re experiencing any kind of knee joint aches and pains, I’d certainly recommend you book a consultation slot with Mandy (can be done online to suit you) as soon as you can!
Best wishes – and remember healthy knees are happy knees! ”
” Amazing staff who are kind and really helpful. Lots of treatments available for all sorts of problems. Highly recommend.
Fantastic, lovely therapists and all the treatments you’ll ever need under the one roof! Highly recommended. ”
” Carl’s acupuncture treatments have helped both mentally and physically. Working holistically he helps you identify any improvements you can make I am definitely a healthier, happier person since our sessions started. I was even able to reduce thyroid medication amounts after acupuncture and a few simple lifestyle changes. ”
” I have been coming to CNH for just under 3 months, initially for fertility reasons. I see Carl for my acupuncture who is fantastic. On my first consultation he gave me so much information, more than I have received from any hospital and he totally put my mind at rest. I thoroughly enjoy my 2 appointments each month and cant recommend him highly enough. ”
” Mandy was recommended to me by the IVF clinic my husband and I are going to.On my initial assessment with Mandy I was an absolute mess! I was suffering with depression,a stressful job,trying to lose weight to increase fertility chances and on the whole I felt completely trapped inside my own body emotionally.At this appointment Mandy was so patient,and was able to understand my personality straight away. I couldn’t believe that in 1.5hrs she knew what type of person I was and my strengths and weaknesses. The way she listened and spoke to me was overwhelming “at last!” I thought someone understands me and knows how I am feeling.
I have had 6 treatments so far (once a week) and I have never felt better in my whole life!I feel balanced and free from anxiety. I was diagnosed with bi polar disorder 8 years ago and this is the first time I have felt so good! I have increased confidence and feel I can tackle anything. This is all thanks to Mandy. I have had acupuncture in the past but never the 5element Mandy does.I feel balanced in my mind body and soul and ready to embark on IVF journey. I truly can’t believe how good I feel!
I would not go anywhere else. Mandy is professional and I am so glad she has cured me! I was a caterpillar trapped inside its shell before I saw Mandy now she has freed me and I am now a flying butterfly. I really wouldn’t have been able to get through these past few months without Mandy she is my saviour. You don’t just get needles put into you, Mandy is able to counsel you through your experience and she never rushes you. She explains everything she does with care and guidance.
Thank you Mandy for rescuing me!! ”
” I am seeing Mandy with regard to a long standing problem with migraines and I am delighted with the results.
Migraines are very painful and debilitating. Pain in the head feels incredibly invasive – almost like a personal assault. Acupuncture has played an instrumental role in giving me my life back. The frequency and intensity of my migraines has reduced significantly and I feel confident that there will be further improvement in the weeks and months to come.
Mandy is a highly skilled, thoughtful and insightful practitioner. She is also gentle, patient and reassuring. She listens intently to what you say and seeks to recognise and resolve any underlying issues. This, in turn, has a positive impact on the presenting problem. I cannot recommend her too highly.
Thank You ”
” After 30 years of trying to deal with my Anxiety issues, I contacted Mandy to look at an alternative Acupuncture treatment. Over the course of just a few sessions, I have experienced signs of settlement in my condition with a reduction in my medication from 15 to 10mg. I consider this change to be a step in the right direction with an eventual goal of becoming medication free.
I would certainly recommend giving Acupuncture a try, you have nothing to lose.
Thanks again Mandy ”
” After years of intermittent sleep problems going back to my early childhood and following discontinuation of sedatives, I felt at my wits end through lack of sleep. I turned to Google, which led me to acupuncture and onto Mandy. Thank you Google and thank you Mandy. Mandy is an extremely experienced, calm and thorough practitioner. She takes time to look at the bigger picture and to really understand you as a person and then tailor her treatment based on you rather than your symptoms. My sleep is wonderful now and I am calm and relaxed as well. I have been thrown a few curve balls since Mandy started treating me and her amazing skills have helped me sail through these. Five Elements acupuncture has intrigued me so much that Mandy and I have been discussing me studying it.
Mandy also referred me to the resident Osteopath at Cheshire Natural Heath. If you are not averse to a deep massage followed by some back cracking, I would definitely recommend this too. I have so much more physical flexibility, can bend, turn and am no longer hunched up. It has freed all my muscles and helped me on my way back again to the posture I had when I was younger whilst treating other back issues too.
Thank you to both ”
” I have been having Acupuncture treatment combined with Chinese herbs at Cheshire Natural Health for insomnia and night time hot flushes/ sweats. I have noticed a huge improvement in the quality of sleep and the hot flushes have stopped. I would certainly recommend the treatment for anyone suffering from menopausal symptoms. ”
” I have been coming to Cheshire Natural Health for a range of treatments to improve my general health and fertility before IVF. I found reflexology and hypnotherapy very relaxing and helped to give me a more positive attitude. I used acupuncture alongside IVF and am very pleased to have become pregnant on the 1st cycle of IVF. I am continuing to have acupuncture through the pregnancy to maintain my health and wellbeing. I have been extremely please with my treatments at Cheshire Natural Health and have recommended the clinic to family and friends. ”
