Acupuncture

Craig Minto Acupuncture

Great Thrift, Orpington, Petts Wood BR5 1NG, UK – 07949 215734

Craig has successfully treated me for a wide range of conditions over the last 8 years. He is extremely knowledgeable about Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. His treatments are subtle but very effective. He is warm and kind.... a very nice man. I cannot recommend him more highly.

I have attended Craig's clinic regularly for the last three years. He has treated a number of complaints which have all improved greatly with his help. The sessions are relaxed and Craig is always friendly and professional. I would highly recommend his acupuncture practice.

Just Therapy

10 St John's Parade, High Street, Sidcup DA14 6ES, UK – 020 8304 0019

I have used Just Therapy for Back and Knee injuries sustained through sport and work and have always been surprised at how quickly the results after treatment have improved my mobility and recovery. The staff are courteous and polite and do a very professional job. I have recommended Just Therapy to colleagues and friends who have always been extremely happy with the results of their treatment.

I was referred to Just Therapy after I sustained a shoulder injury at my sporting club. The clinic was clean and the staff were very professional and polite. They introduced me to needling and it did wonders. I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to get back into pain free exercise.

Petts Wood Osteopathic Clinic - Simon Tolson

123A Queensway, Orpington BR5 1DG, UK – 01689 827247

I would absolutely recommend Simon. With decades of experience, it takes him one or two sessions to bring me back to life (problems with my spine). Simon is extremely skilful and knowledgeable. Some of my friends who were treated by Simon could not be more satisfied with the result as well. Thank you for your help. Nadia

Very good treatment and advise from Mr Tolson. Highly recommend to see as an osteopath and for exercises. Only needed a few treatments and would happily return if needed. Thank you.

Chinese acupuncture and massage. Dr Ding fixes you, often in quite unexpected ways.

The Ashworth Practice

Bromley Park Medical Centre, Daly Dr, Bromley BR1 2JQ, UK – 020 8295 8466

I have been to see Kate at The Ashworth Practice a number of times of the years and she is a consummate professional in Osteopathy. She explains things very clearly and has relieved me of agonising neck and lower back pain. The problems I had were as a result of many years sitting in front of a computer and various DIY "situations" that I got myself into. Anyone suffering from back pain will know that it affects different parts of your body too, such as hand and leg pain, not to mention the months of lack-of-sleep. (Which made me really grumpy!). I have seen other Osteopaths and Chiropractors in the past who have not been successful in helping with my problems. I recommend Kate at the highest level and offer a big thank you.
