5.0 out of 5
I first starting visiting Aliya for acupuncture a year ago after having surgery on my back in May 2013. After the surgery I tried steroid and painkiller injections into my vertebrae via an NHS pain clinic and also regular massage but it didn’t work. I was having to take high doses of co-codamol, tramadol and gabapentin to control my pain. This meant I was unable to try for a baby and I actually felt hopeless in the fact I thought i’d never be well enough to carry a pregnancy. It took a few sessions before it started to work, probably due to the log standing back problems I’ve had for the past 16 years, but the perseverance paid off. I am now free of all painkillers and visit Aliya approx. Every 8 weeks and this time gap is extending after every treatment. I also felt ready to start trying for a baby and am happy to report that we ‘got caught’ first time. I happy in the knowledge that Aliya will be able to continue treating me during my pregnancy and help keep my back pain at bay.
Aliya makes you feel relaxed and comfortable and talks you through every aspect of your care, I would highly recommend her.
