"I decided to have acupuncture after 6 months of trying for a baby to give myself the best chance at falling pregnant. Judy was very knowledgeable on the phone and after my first consultation I knew I had made the right choice. She discussed all areas of my life including nutrition, work and home life to be able to tailor her treatment to my needs, and was even able to suggest changes to my diet that I believe had a very positive effect in the long run. I fell pregnant 4 months after my treatment began and believe the positive steps I took in that time including my acupuncture treatment and change in nutrition helped. I continued to have acupuncture throughout my pregnancy as I felt it had a beneficial effect on me and kept some of my early anxieties at bay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Judy and would go back if I ever needed treatment again."
"I contacted Judy for fertility acupuncture. I had 4 sessions and was pregnant after 3! Judy is very kind, reassuring and professional. I felt very comfortable in her care and looked forward to our sessions. She was very thorough in her approach and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Judy for fertility acupuncture."
"Judy is very passionate about her work and incredibly knowledgeable – she also genuinely cares about you. These are qualities that are very hard to find nowadays and when we decided to have IVF it was important to find someone who we trusted completely to join us on our journey.
I often recommend Judy to friends and family and will definitely use her in the future. My daughter is a happy, healthy baby and I can honestly say that I believe the treatment I had before and during my pregnancy, with Judy, contributed to this. "
"I went to Judy after lots of research on the benefits of acupuncture to help IVF treatments. From the very first phone conversation I knew that Judy would be able to calm me and help. I attended both her Crowborough and Tunbridge Wells clinics and both are great. Judy is incredibly professional and really puts you at ease, she listened very patiently to me and explained thoroughly what each treatment would aim to do. We opted to have acupuncture weekly and then to have one the day before and then one a few hours after implantation, followed by two more following implantation. I firmly believe that Judy is one of the main reasons that this cycle worked when others failed, we welcomed a very healthy Chloe into our lives in November and I will always be thankful that my google search led me to Judy. She is brilliant at her job and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Thank you so much for everything that you’ve done for us – I’m not sure if we’d have baby Mary now if we hadn’t had so much help and support."
"I first went to Judy for help in 2015. My husband and I had been trying, unsuccessfully, to conceive a child for over 6 years and were on the point of considering going down the IVF route. We'd read about Judy's specialism in fertility and so we were desperate to try anything that might help before we did that. I also suffer from Ulcerative Colitis which is a very debilitating condition. Over 2015, Judy gave me a weekly session starting with massage and then worked on various points to improve my fertility, rebalance my energy levels and reduce the effects of my UC. By April 2016, I got the magic line in the pregnancy test window and we now have a healthy 22 month old boy. Even better, another child on the way. I am certain that Judy's treatments helped my body to rebalance itself and get it ready to be pregnant and my husband and I are so happy we found her. If we had not, who knows where we might still be now. The UC still continually troubles me but the sessions lessen its impact and though I feel tired after them, I do always feel better too. I would not hesitate to recommend that anyone who needs help with fertility, but also any other issue contact Judy first. She is highly experienced, professional and kind."
"I was recommended Judy through a friend who saw her for acupuncture treatment to work alongside fertility treatment. I have had a long journey of trying to conceive our baby and always found Judy very professional and helpful during our IVF treatment. The treatment itself is very relaxing, and always starts with a lovely massage. I would recommend Judy to anyone who wants acupuncture to work alongside fertility treatment. Our last round of IVF worked and our baby is due soon. "
"After undergoing fertility treatment with Judy after two miscarriages, we are now delighted to be expecting our first baby. I am now having acupuncture to help support me through my pregnancy. We are really grateful to Judy for helping us during our journey. She is professional, efficient, warm and engaging. We highly recommend Judy and will continue to use her services in the future."
"Dear Judy, I wanted to let you know that I often think of how helpful and calming you were during those stressful IVF rounds in 2017 and 2014. I always recommend acupuncture to anyone I know going through IVF as a result of the wonderful care I had with you."
"Beautiful baby! I came to see Judy for a course of 8 fertility acupuncture sessions for IVF. She is really kind and supportive. I always felt great after my treatments. Judy was really flexible with appointment times, so I could get the right treatment at the right time. On the day of my embryo transfer I had sessions with Judy before and after the transfer. She even drove me home afterwards! In the final stages of pregnancy I had more acupuncture for induction and had a really easy birth. Now I have a happy healthy little girl. Judy I can't thank you enough."
"Judy, Thank you so much for all my accupuncture treatments over the last 18 months, and for your kindness, support and advice over this time. I firmly believe the accupuncture contributed to my timely and smooth labour. My contractions started properly just 2 hours after my appointment, and Baby G was born less than 36 hours later, missing her due date by just 4 hours - which is pretty good for a first time Mum.
I have always really enjoyed my visits to you and you helped me through some very low and anxious times. I had hoped to visit for some post birth treatments, but sadly coronavirus has prevented that. I will definitely be seeking your help when it is time for baby number 2 and I will certainly be recommending you to any pregnant friends of mine. All the best xxx "
‘I can’t recommend Judy enough. My first experience of acupuncture was visiting Judy during pregnancy. Not only did her treatments improve my sense of well-being but they also alleviated my pelvic discomfort and, at a week overdue, I credit her entirely as getting my labour started. I saw Judy at 4pm and by 9pm I was dilating. We are endlessly grateful to Judy for helping our little girl decide to arrive and for her care during the other treatments. Judy takes covid measures very seriously, you feel entirely covid secure in her studio without compromising on the acupuncture experience. She is professional, incredibly experienced and a pleasure to chat with during treatments.’
"Judy is welcoming and kind and from my first visit put me at ease, so although I was nervous about the treatment, I quickly relaxed. Judy’s acupuncture has made a huge difference in relieving the period pains I suffered with since I was 14. I no longer have to resort to strong pain relief medication or spending 1 or 2 days each month being sick and feeling exhausted. The treatment has been so successful in helping me that my periods now start ‘unannounced’ and I can carry on with my daily routine with no adverse symptoms. THANK YOU SO MUCH JUDY."
"Judy has helped me cope with unpleasant side effects of gynaecological surgery and ongoing back and bowel problems. At times I have been in a lot of discomfort physically and emotionally drained. Judy listens. Her massage and acupuncture addresses both the physical and the emotional. After a visit I always feel more able to cope with things and there is always some reduction in the discomfort. Recently, when in a particularly bad way, Judy’s treatments really got me out of trouble. I hadn’t seen Judy for a few months and things had deteriorated and I was quite depressed. Judy not only addressed the discomfort, but worked on improving my energy levels. Within a couple of days I felt able to cope better than I had for months and the discomfort is continuing to improve. I have also been able to stop using some of the prescribed medication which is great."
"I initially visited Judy as I was suffering with severe headaches; Judy gave me a warm welcome and I felt relaxed with her from the start. Judy cured me of the recurrent headaches and I have since been treated by her for 'trigger finger' and hormonal issues. Seeing Judy regularly has made a significant difference to my general well being and I leave my sessions feeling relaxed and refreshed. Judy's professionalism and genuinely caring nature always make me feel I am in good hands. I am really grateful to Judy and highly recommend her. "
I started going to see Judy to help with hormonal balance, something I've always suffered with. The day after one of her sessions I wake up full of energy and completely revitalized. I'm also a fan of facial acupuncture. The results are amazing, great skin tone and sparkling eyes. I like Judy’s straight forward approach, she’s always happy to explain what she’s doing during the treatment and she’s clearly passionate about what she does.
"I have suffered with PMT for most of my adult life and was diagnosed with PMDD 5 years ago. Since I started seeing Judy 8 months ago, my mood and general well-being have improved significantly. I see Judy every 4 weeks to tie in with my cycle. For the last few months the PMT symptoms have been almost non-existent. Judy's manner is warm and friendly and I can highly recommend her practice."
"I went to see Judy because of insomnia and trouble with sleeping. I had never had acupuncture before and was amazed and delighted with the improvement it made. It is wonderful to be able to sleep properly through the night again. Thank you Judy. I very much appreciate the difference you have made."
"Monday's session was really effective! The tendon problem in my knee is now fine and my pelvic floor much better. Thank you. "
"The results of Judy's acupuncture exceeded my expectations. After trying all conventional methods to manage my premature peri-menopausal symptoms I finally went to see Judy. I had the usual symptoms - sweats, sleepless nights, mood swings, and not so usual effects - very puffy eyes. After a series of sessions with Judy, which included facial rejuvenation acupuncture my symptoms disappeared. Judy's facial acupuncture has now become part of my regular 'maintenance' routine as the results are so impressive."
"I couldn’t recommend Judy enough. We had had two failed IVF attempts and were losing hope until we decided to give acupuncture in conjunction with IVF a try. I was sceptical at first, but Judy explained how and why acupuncture can help. I felt it really helped and now from our third IVF cycle (first with acupuncture) I am the proud mum of a beautiful 5 month old baby boy. I will definitely be going back to Judy next time around."
"I met Judy when my husband had treatment with her for a shoulder injury. I felt at ease from the minute I met her and have always been at ease when being treated by her. Subsequently we found out that it would be necessary for us to have fertility treatment to start our family. So I contacted Judy and we chatted over the options and booked in some sessions - never once did I feel pressured to continue with treatment and I felt that Judy was always very aware of the financial strain this was having on us.
Throughout the whole process I was positive, upbeat and calm. I genuinely believe this is as a result of the acupuncture treatment I had throughout fertility treatment and pregnancy. I did not suffer with feeling overly tired (despite working shifts) throughout the first few months of my pregnancy, nor did I suffer with morning sickness. I am convinced this was because of the treatment I had beforehand! I continued to see Judy throughout my pregnancy and every other day when my daughter went 2 weeks overdue, again she was flexible and happy to do anything she could to fit me in! "
I cannot recommend Judy enough, she, in short, has given me, my life back. For the last fifteen years I have suffered with excruciating period pain, resulting in me having to take two days off work every month. For three out of four weeks I would dread the day my period was due to start, knowing I would be confined to bed, be bent over double in pain, and even have panic attacks because the pain would be so intense. Conventional medicine had failed me, despite trying every avenue my GP recommended, I thought I'd just have to live with it - that was until I met Judy. I have only been seeing Judy since last October, but my bad skin, back acne, PMT and period pain has all disappeared. I no longer dread those two days every month, and I can go to work without a worry in the world! Acupuncture has given be a new lease of life and I am forever indebted to her!
"In the height of the Summer when I was 7 months pregnant I was suffering from hay fever so badly that I felt like I had the flu and was confined in doors for much of the day. As I was pregnant, anti histamines were not an option and so I looked to acupuncture for some help. Judy fit me in for an appointment promptly, following a consultation she got straight to work on this issue and following 4 appointments with her, my hay fever had completely disappeared and I am thrilled to say that I haven't suffered with hay fever since then! I am so grateful for Judy, she is professional, knowledgeable and extremely talented. Thank you Judy!!"
Since seeing Judy my menopause symptoms are now under control and it’s a great relief not to have to resort to HRT. Judy has a holistic approach and adapts each treatment to best suit how I feel on the day. Her knowledge, carefully considered treatment approach and her ability to get results has been invaluable – it works! I always feel better after each session. Judy thank you too for caring as you do.
I can't thank Judy enough for her kind and patient care whilst going through our IVF cycles. My sessions were moments of real calm in spite of the stress and the calming effect really helped me cope. We were very lucky that our last cycle worked and we were blessed with two beautiful babies. Judy is a lovely person to help you stay balanced on the IVF rollercoaster, I can highly recommend her.
