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 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.
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 deprivation. She 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).
I’ve suffered with muscular pain from my hip right down to the base of my foot. I have so far had three sessions and I can already feel a big improvement. Highly recommend.
I first started with Meridian Acupuncture clinic (Ali) in September 2019 with a frozen right shoulder. This was extremely painful and I had tried everything with no result. After just one visit I felt slight relieve that I hadn’t felt in months I was amazed. By October 2019 I was getting good movements with my arm and shoulder and my pain had decreased significantly so good that I had reduced my pain killers and no longer needed a support cushion whilst laying down. By November of that year I almost had full circular movement was not on any medication and was sleeping 100% better. This treatment was fabulous and stopped me from slipping into a full emotional decline. Pain free at last movement back into my arm/shoulder and sleeping far better than ever. I would highly recommend Meridian Acupuncture Clinic for any sort of physical pain, injury or emotional problems that you may be experiencing. The way the pain mechanism is explained and treated helps you understand and work with the problem instead of just popping pain killers. Great clinic great results.
I originally sought out Aliya upon strong recommendation that she could help my back pain. She opened up with a discussion that puts me at ease. Aliya is clearly skillful and knowledgeable at her job. She was amazingly accurate at assessing my medical condition and even my personality traits. The acupuncture session itself was deeply relaxing and energising. It resolved my back ache and a number of other issues. Aliya is the most professional and effective holistic therapist I have ever encountered. I recommend her to everyone.
Amazing! As a sceptic of Acupuncture since I have had it in the past with no result. I was persuaded to see Ali by a friend. I have had hip pain for two months and it is painful to walk, sleep, and get out of bed in the morning. I put it down to old age creeping on since I am 76! However after one treatment Hurrah no pain and I got a good nights sleep and I got out of bed. I will be going back for another session because the results are marvelous. Thankyou Ali.
I was very apprehensive about acupuncture and had never tried it and had left it to a last resort. Little did I know how helpful even after my first session it would be, not only how it would help with my pain but gave me peace and joy internally! I know if I was reading this I would think what a load of rubbish this guy is saying but honestly I’m not one to often leave reviews but I felt Aliya well and truly deserves the recognition for the work she performed on me today. Not only did I feel brilliant once leaving but from the moment I walked into her practice I was instantly put at ease and treated with respect and never felt judged or uncomfortable (even the room temperature was perfect which is apparently the hardest thing to please various clients!) I can only hope Aliya is not overly booked so I can get in to reap the benefits of another session! Many thanks Aliya hope to see you soon x.
