I went to see Dr Smith after I had a problem opening my jaw. It was very painful and felt locked. I had 6 sessions of acupuncture on my jaw and it worked amazingly! I was so happy with the results. The whole process was painless and easy. I also had acupuncture on my neck and shoulders as they muscles were really tight in them. After two days they felt so much better and not tight at all. Would definitely have this done again!

Dr Anna Smith suggested I could try acupuncture for the pain and discomfort of tennis elbow. I wasn't convinced this would work but I was willing to try it instead of having to use pain killers, which were pretty ineffective anyway. Oh my goodness! What a difference that course of acupuncture has made. 5 months later and I am still pain free. I cannot recommend this treatment highly enough. Dr Smith is very reassuring throughout the treatment and so makes it a relaxing experience.
