It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am to Martin, he is truly gifted at what he does and 100% dedicated to his patients. Initially I went to try acupuncture as I had exhausted all other options. I’m very tall and with an old compression fracture in my lower lumbar I never dreamed of being pain free. Yet 6 months on and now 6 months pregnant I have not had a single niggle, and that’s following 10 years of pain. Maybe I am just lucky the treatment worked so well? I returned again recently suffering with horrendous muscle cramps in my lower abdomen, in addition I had also been losing sleep due to my rib cage becoming extremely tender as it opened up to make room for baby. 2 sessions and Martin has sent me on my way, all my symptoms eleviated and sleeping well. Martin I will one day try and understand how this works as it seems like witchcraft.... until then thank you so much for sharing your gifts, offering another route to pharmaceuticals and surgery, and for being so straight. Gemma

I first came to see Martin five years ago. I had been suffering with raging insomnia for years as well as anxiety , heart palpitations and over heating that my doctor simply couldn't explain. I had tried hypnotherapy, prescription and non-prescription medicines, different acupunturists and nothing provided lasting results, until I came across Martin John. After a few sessions, the palpitations had calmed down significantly and I was sleeping through the night for the first time in years. This unexpected miracle then prompted me to enquire if he could help with fertility. Our fertility specialist had deemed our chances to conceive as less than three percent, due to my being 44 at the time and my partner had his own problems. Soon enough we both started having sessions with Martin and we duly took all the supplements he prescribed. Three months later we were pregnant! As it turned out this pregnancy saved my life for it led to me being diagnosed with an inoperable, adrenal brain tumour at sixteen weeks. This meant a life saving, close eye could be kept on me in future while I focussed on raising my son. Radiotherapy at the time would have seen me loose significant function and so, determined to be there for my boy in all ways, I have been on a journey with Martin for four years until the point came where I could no longer put the treatment off. (They have since developed a new technique and all loss of function have been taken away.) Martin has helped hugely at times when the adrenaline from the tumour would cause me to have terrible panic attacks and anxiety. I continued seeing him every so often, just to keep that in check. I've continued sleeping and when my son was born he slept all the way through form the start. I had taken sleepy and calming herbs during pregnancy as soon as I learned of my compromised adrenal situation, as I didn't want it to impact on my baby. As Martin said, he turned out so relaxed because he was an acupuncture baby! I feel the deepest gratitude towards Martin for if it wasn't for him, I don't believe I'd be sitting here writing this review today. My team at the oncology centre can't believe my progress as I'm now entering the last week of radiotherapy. They predicted that I would be on Morphine by week three and coming towards the end of week five, I have only had to take paracetamol on a couple of days! Im having no pain and I feel surprisingly sprightly considering. All due to Martins herbs and weekly acupuncture as I go through my treatment.. Thank you so much again for everything Martin. Marisa

Daniel Maxwell: Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine in Frome, Somerset

15 N Parade, Frome BA11 1AS, UK – 07946 390212

Chinese medicine works. Daniel is an excellent practitioner of it. He has worked wonders on a few problems for me, symptoms reduce dramatically after just one treatment. Daniel has an excellent understanding of how the human body works, it’s amazing for someone to explain why something might be happening then stick some needles in you and some other techniques and it works like magic. Far better results than I get from my GP. If you’ve never tried Chinese medicine before then you must, and if your are located at a place where you can access Daniel then I highly recommend him.

I feel so better all round for having some acupuncture treatments. Danny has not only treated my elbow (which is why I initially sought some treatment), but has tried to get to the root cause of my problems. My neck has not felt so free for years. I would highly recommend him for treatment.

''Amrit, is an immensely powerful and humble master of Kundalini Yoga, whom I cannot recommend highly enough. He has a way of not just teaching and sharing his knowledge, but totally embodying the principles he teaches outside of the practice, which is truly inspiring. His gentle presence and high energy, creates a special atmosphere where I always feel inspired to push the boundaries of my comfort zone and access something deeper within. The sessions leave me feeling incredible. Come prepared to let go and you will leave feeling lighter, brighter and oftentimes slightly euphoric'' Brian O’Keeffe, Marketing Consultant, Ireland

I have had treatment for over 8 months now with Amrit and I have seen a significant improvements over this time. It's a very warm and welcome environment to come to that makes you feel very comfortable. I look forward to every time I visit :D.

Luke Norland- Homeopathy & Massage

Ground, Turnpike House,, 18 Bridge St, Frome BA11 1BB, UK – 07718 959705

Luke completely changed my preconceived ideas of Homeopathy, after I had become a bit of a skeptic having tried it a few times, without feeling any significant benefit. He holds space beautifully. I felt safe and able to express openly and clearly, with his soft guidance. After just 2 sessions with Luke, I have felt a huge shift in certain elements of my being. His gentle, nurturing approach has provided me with immense support and allowed me to move through some lingering and deep rooted layers of holding within my system, that were really affecting my ability to thrive. It's a subtle process- one that requires you to be open hearted and minded- but one I am so grateful for. I cannot recommend him highly enough- I truly think he has a natural, innate skill and talent for this work.

I sought Luke's help when I was experiencing a transitional period in my life. I needed support through a challenging time and thought homeopathy may be the ticket. With Luke's empathetic ear and his passion for homeopathy and health, I was able to turn that critical corner. I am forever grateful for his time and help. My life has changed so dramatically for the better. Thank you again, Luke!
