What our clients had to say
"I am 58 years old suffering from Type 2 Diabetes, arthritis, diverticulitis, underacting thyroid, high blood pressure and heart problems. I reached a point where I was willing to try acupuncture to void being on a constant cocktail antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. Over the period that Michelle has treated me I have noticed a great, all round improvement, in my health and for the first time, in a long time. I can only attribute this to her skill, ability and knowledge and to the use of acupuncture. I would highly recommend using acupuncture, to restore your health and balance and the expertise of Michelle."
"About a 18 months ago I came across an advert for Tai Chi / Qi Gong in a local publication. Having osteoporosis and being unable to take the prescribed drugs I was seeking an alternative to help strengthen my bones. After having 3 fractures in a short period of time I felt this might be what I had been looking for. My foot was still weak from a recent fracture and I decided to go for private lessons with Michelle. What I did not realise was the journey Tai Chi / Qi Gong would set me on. From the very first lesson Michelle was committed to helping me and for the first year I learnt the movements whilst seated on a ball or a chair. My foot feels the strongest it has been since the first fracture in 2008 and my balance, which was the cause of most of my fractures throughout the years, has improved to a point that I cannot recall the last time I fell. I do my Tai Chi / Qi Gong exercises every day because I want to. It has become part of my daily routine with me feeling the benefits not only for my balance and bone structure but also for my general wellbeing. Michelle is not just a Tai Chi / Qi Gong instructor, she lives by its principles and is passionate with her students."
"The Master keeps her mind always at one with the Tao; that is what gives her her radiance. (Tao Te Ching). This sums up Michelle, she not only teaches Tai Chi and Q Gong but lives it and it radiates from within! Not only has Michelle great patience in teaching the Form, she inspires you to apply its principles into your daily life. I have been going to Michelle’s classes for over a year and would highly recommend them. I am a type 2, Diabetic and both are considered a very good form of exercise for Diabetes."
"Suffering with arthritis mainly in my fingers and being unable to take medication for it left me seeking alternate therapies. I was already going to Michelle for Tai Chi / Qi Gong and decided to try what she had to offer in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Every week I have acupuncture, Tui Na (a form of massage therapy) and moxibustion. Over the months the joints in my fingers have slowly started to loosen and become more flexible. I am now able to make a fist which was not possible when I started the treatment and the dexterity in my fingers is returning. Along the way I have had other aches and pains (as we do when we are getting on in years) and Michelle has helped with all of those too."
