I don’t know where to began writing a review about Ali at Meridian Acupuncture. She is just the best! I started seeing her around 8 years ago for lots of digestive issues and then PMS and have switched between 1 or 2 sessions a month depending on what was going on. Ali is so calm and inviting, I remember feeling quite nervous on my first session because I didn’t know what to expect, but she soon put me at ease and I’ve returned every month ever since. My digestion is much better and my PMS symptoms (especially cramping) are nowhere near as bad as they used to be. On top of these things, when I have mentioned other niggly symptoms like headaches, random blurry vision and poor sleep Ali worked her magic to address them. The sessions have become a part of my monthly routine and I can’t imagine not having them now. There hasn’t been anything that she hasn’t been able to help me with and I’m truly grateful for her skills and flexibility to fit me in at awkward times- thank you Ali!

After trying for a second baby for over a year I went to see Ali following a friend’s recommendation. Ali was very thorough from the get go, wanting to ensure she understood everything that was happening from a body and a life point of view. After approx six months of trying to regulate my periods and reduce my stress levels, we got to the stage where they were regular and operating how they should be. However, we knew falling pregnant naturally would be a challenge as I have a very low AMH.

Myself and my husband knew that if we wanted to do IVF we would have to do it as quickly as possible because we knew the success rate would always be on the low side due to my egg quantity. We decided to go for IVF as soon as the first lockdown was lifted. I visited Ali once a week in the three months leading up to IVF to ensure my body was ready. Ali was fabulous during the IVF process, a constant positive attitude but also so flexible. One example of this is on implantation day I had to be at the clinic super early. Ali was more than happy to see me ahead of her clinic times to ensure I could have the treatment. I have no doubt that Ali’s nature and flexibility helped our IVF process.
I’m very pleased to say that despite only collecting three eggs and two being implanted, we now have a healthy baby girl who was born last week.
I honestly couldn’t recommend Ali enough. Her treatment, her personality, her calming nature, her positive mindset – I truly believe all of this helped me be in the right frame of mind for IVF and for having our little girl.
Ali – we will forever be grateful for you, your way of being, your calming influence and your understanding

I went to see Aliya initially as my periods had stopped and I had been diagnosed with PCOS. I also wanted to start trying for a baby in the next few monthsI found my first session with Aliya so enlightening. She is so easy to talk to, intuitive and supportive. After a couple of acupuncture sessions my period returned. I fell pregnant the following month and am expecting my first baby in June. I fully believe that this was due to my sessions with Aliya, which I have continued through my pregnancy as I have found such a benefit from acupuncture. I have since recommended Aliya to a number of my friends and family.

Came to see Ali for 3 months before my current IVF cycle and found it to help so much, made me a lot more relaxed during the whole process! Now currently 20 weeks and have just gone back today for another treatment for headaches. Feel better already 🙂

I went to Meridian Accupuncture a few weeks ago with terrible pain in my shoulder and only after my first session I was 80% pain free and after my second session pretty much pain free! I can’t recommend this treatment highly enough! It has also helped me with my hot flushes. I will defiantly without hesitation be using the treatments again.

I first saw Aliya in September 2020 as I was suffering the after effects of a virus which had resulted in an inflammatory disorder. I was suffering lots of pain as well as having menopausal symptoms and general low mood. After just one session I felt I had got my “mojo” back, and was more productive with increased energy levels, and I was able to channelling more positive thoughts. The second visit consolidated everything and I definitely going to incorporate regular visits to Aliya as part of my self care. She has a lovely energy about her and I highly recommend her practice

Ali is positive, cheery and intuitive and her wide ranging modalities that come under the umbrella of acupuncture create a fully rounded and very nurturing practice. I was in such pain when I first went to see her, with herniated discs and lots of referred pain and sleep deprivationShe really holds space for healing to occur and to soothe and treat in a really beautiful and patient centred way. I’ll always recommend her!

Having had many sleepless nights with dreadful back ache, I can honestly say that after just one visit to see Ali at the Meridian Clinic its been miraculous, I have had a pain free night and day, my only regret is that I didn’t go to see Ali sooner. I’ve promised myself after my next treatment this week I’m going to make a booking for every three months just as maintenance. This is the second time Ali has treated my back and I can highly recommend her acupuncture treatment, its brilliant.

After months of severe Heel pain and 5 courses of antibiotics for two misdiagnosed conditions, I contacted Meridian Acupuncture who correctly diagnosed Plantar Fasciatis. Following just one session of Acupuncture treatment, and massage with oils and correct advice, my heel is so much better I can now walk of properly. Many thanks
(My wife Denise is so much better she can’t believe it, we are now on with looking for the supportive shoes. Thank you very much we are so very great full.🤗🤗🤗 DB &CHB).
