What my patients say - Recently added patient's story
After suffering from recurring miscarriages over 2 years, while trying for a second baby and being told by numerous doctors and consultants that it was "bad luck" and that there was no reason to explain the miscarriages, I decided to try alternative therapy of acupuncture combined with Chinese herbal medicine. My sessions with Kyoko were calming and healing=physically as well as emotionally. I could feel my energy, hormones and body being re=balanced and restored as the weeks went by. Kyoko advised not to try for a baby until at least after 3 months of treatments. I could feel my body healing and getting stronger after each treatment. I fell pregnant after the third month and our beautiful baby girl is now coming up to 2 years old! My husband noticed the change in my physical and emotional well-being so much that he also went for some acupuncture sessions for his own relaxation and stress relief! I would certainly recommend Kyoko for anyone who is thinking of conceiving, to restore balance to their systems and create the best environment in their body to welcome a baby.

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!
I am a 63 year old female and was still having several hot flushes each day as well as mood swings (flying off the handle at the smallest thing), insomnia and mild depression. I realised I needed help when I was struggling to function.-------I knew my high Cortisol levels were due to stress and after much research I sought out an acupuncturist - I found Kyoko. I haven't looked back - after six months of regular acupuncture and Kyoko's Chinese herbs, my Cortisol levels are back to normal, I feel calm and I'm sleeping better than I have for years. I would recommend Kyoko to anyone suffering from stress related health issues. Acupuncture for me was the most relaxing treatment and I can't thank Kyoko enough for making me well.
