"Rachel is a very sensitive and focused practitioner who has treated me with success for an injury and other issues. Equally I got my teenage daughter to attend treatment sessions for different issues. If we need any healing support Rachel is a first port of call in the family. She uses a wide range of techniques to give effect to the target remedy. We recommend". - Liz from Tufnell Park

"My reaction to the acupuncture was awesome – for the first time I had peace of mind – I was pain free. I had been troubled by shoulder pain, since aged 14. I had been in continuous pain". - William Mackenzie

"I  found Rachel by searching google and went to her with whip lash, and an uncomfortable back. The treatment was gentle and relaxing. Not only did it clear up my back problems, but I also felt benefits in other areas of my well being. For the first time in years my period was regular, which has been a constant worry but something I didn't even consider cupping could help with".

"Speaking for myself, I’m not a great believer in lines of Chi, energy fields and other ‘alternative’ therapy theories – Rachel radiates an energy and enthusiasm for her field that’s convincing even this old cynic.

Previously experienced in Shiatsu, Rachel trained in Acupuncture at Westminster University, graduating in 2004. Why move on to acupuncture? it the most powerful therapy dealing with the ebb and flow of energy around the body.

It’s good for the emotional side, for anxiety, for insomnia, depression – but it’s excellent too for specific localised issues such as a frozen shoulder or back pain. I crack a poor joke about acupuncture for fear of needles, but Rachel cuts in quickly to make a serious point: That means that it’s up to the practitioner to be sensitive to the patient’s expectations during the treatment - using the finest, needles making the experience relaxing and positive from the outset. - Alec Myers
