I have had acupunture from Dave for a back problem that I have had for 4 years , I was very sceptical at first to my amazement the relief that i got was unbelievable the pain went from a 10 to a 2 also lasted for 3 weeks, i would highly recommend daves treatment , the clinic also is a very lovely relaxed space.

“Firstly, having had acupuncture with Dave at ‘Dan-Tien’ to regulate my hormones for the coming months up to our IVF cycle, this I believe was vital! Then, just before egg retrieval and on the way home from our embryo transfer, I got a rash on my arms and “I knew” a foreign body had attached to my womb, that foreign is now my 2.4 year old son! For me I believe I wouldn’t have my son if it wasn’t for what acupuncture helped to do with my hormones and eggs and then our embryos plus, it helped me to relax also, amazing stuff!!
