Treatment Type: TCM Acupuncture

I first went to see Ali in June 2020 after being recommended by someone at my fertility clinic. I was very sceptical at first and wasn’t sure of the benefits but I was prepared to give anything a go for the best chance of getting pregnant. I wanted to make sure my menstrual cycle was in a good situation to accept an embryo and to help me stay fit and healthier. I was surprised at how relaxed I felt during my 1st acupuncture session and when my period came that month I had no spotting, no pain and Ali said this was all good signs ready for pregnancy. The embryo I had put back stuck with the help of having acupuncture before and after my transfer, unfortunately the embryo didn’t stay stuck and resulted in an early miscarriage. I continued with acupuncture and in the build up to my 2nd transfer I was able to relax more and had really got into the swing of acupuncture and the way it made me feel after. I had more regular acupuncture for my next transfer and around the time of my miscarriage last cycle Ali offered a free session to reduce the risk of this happening again. I continued seeing Ali until I was about 9/10 weeks pregnant when after many scans could see the pregnancy progressing. I absolutely loved having acupuncture and would not hesitate to have it again in the future. It particularly helped me to relax, relieve my anxieties and also help combat my early morning sickness and headaches! Thank You Ali.

Aliya is the best acupuncturist I’ve ever visited. Kind, gentle, reassuring and focused, I’ve always left her Chapel Lane clinic feeling so much better than when I arrived. Mel

After 8yrs of unexplained infertility, 7 failed IVF’s and finally 2 children from the last IVF I contacted Aliya to balance my body, in readiness for a new IVF cycle. I was a bit sceptical about the glowing testimonials on the website, but my apprehension was ill-founded. After about 4-5 sessions, I WAS PREGNANT naturally. No need for IVF. I have possible immune factors that prevent embryos from implanting. Aliya balanced and boosted my immune system which I suspect allowed a natural pregnancy to occur. Also my period went from a 31-2 day cycle to a textbook 28 day, with reduced PMT and no spotting. I must add that I was also following a very healthy eating plan (lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and protein) along with supplements for myself and the husband. But without a doubt, the acupuncture played a major part in getting me pregnant. The sessions are very relaxing and not at all painful. And she is just the loveliest person. I have recommended her to all my friends who are also suffering from various fertility issues. Don’t let the costs put you off. She is worth every penny.

I was recommended to see Aliya by a friend following the death of my husband. My husband Mark was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in May 2006 and following many sessions of chemotherapy and two stem cell transplants sadly lost the fight in October 2019. After 30 years of being together with the last 12 of those being married my world fell apart. I first saw Aliya in August 2020 after spending many months in what felt like another world. As soon as I sat down and started talking to Aliya, I knew that I had a chance of getting back to being and feeling more normal. Aliya is a beautiful person and totally understood my situation. My wishes included “not crying all the time” and I wanted to get my mojo back and start feeling better about myself and having more get up and go. After just one session I knew that I had to continue seeing Aliya – the 19th October (my wedding anniversary) and the 22nd October (the day Mark passed away) were approaching and I knew that they were going to tough days and I felt so drained. I saw Aliya on the 24th October and again helped me cope better with how I was feeling. By January 2021 it felt like a real shift had happened in my energy field and I was even talking about planning for new wardrobes, new carpet, new bed etc…. For my bedroom. By February 2021 I felt more “revitalised and re-energised”.Aliya is a brilliant practitioner and is very knowledgeable and I would 100% recommend her to everyone.

I can not recommend Aliya highly enough. I initially saw her for help with vertigo issues but have since been back for various niggles each of which she seems to magically resolve. She takes a lovely holistic approach and a visit to her is a deeply relaxing experience.

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.

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).
