What my patients say - Recently added patient's story
I first started seeing Kyoko in January this year after struggling with autoimmune disease, chronic pain and fatigue for about a year and a half. I found acupuncture and herbs to be incredibly helpful for my pain and energy levels and slowly but surely improved. In June, after six months of seeing Kyoko, I felt well enough to switch to fertility acupuncture and, to my surprise, conceived within two cycles. I am now in my second trimester and feeling good! I am extremely grateful to Kyoko for all of her help and for the kindness and professionalism she showed me throughout treatment and at a very difficult time in my life. I would recommend her to anyone.

I came to Kyoko after going through 3 unsuccessful cycles of IVF.-------I decided to add a holistic approach to my IVF treatment. I've never utilised holistic medicine previously so I was unsure what to expect, but my sessions with Kyoko helped me approach my 4th IVF cycle with a sense of calmness, peace and positivity that I desperately needed restored after the previous IVF failures. At 39 years of age, my IVF clinic collected 15 eggs with 5 making it to the blastcyst stage. One of the transferred eggs was the highest quality I'd ever obtained (4ab) and we're now nearing the end of our first trimester of pregnancy! Kyoko is warm and encouraging and I have no doubt that the Chinese herbs and acupuncture were a positive factor in our IVF success. We're very grateful and thankful!

I came to Kyoko with annoying peri-menopausal symptoms like an erratic menstrual cycle, night sweats, hot flushes, headaches, disturbed sleep and mood swings. Her potent blend of relaxing acupuncture treatments, herbal teas and sunny disposition has helped me holistically realign myself. After three months, I am free of the symptoms, my cycle has returned to normal and I feel like a shiny new version of my old self. Thank you for your help, Kyoko!
After suddenly starting to experience cystic acne in my early twenties, I was diagnosed with PCOS and spent the next 5 years trying a wide variety of treatments to try and clear up my skin.---------I started treatment with Kyoko four months ago and a month or so after beginning to receive acupuncture and take Chinese herbs, my spots just stopped appearing and the old ones began to heal. I have had beautifully clear skin since then; I feel so grateful and my confidence has increased hugely. I would highly recommend acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for both acne and PCOS. Kyoko is a highly professional, turstworthy and caring practitioner - it is a rare gift to find someone who will genuinely listen and work on addressing the root causes of an issue. I would recommend her without hesitation. Thank you!
