“I hurt my back in January 2017 and after endless doctors sending me for scans and giving me very strong medications, I heard about Sarah and the service she offers. I made an appointment and went to her acupuncture session. I was so impressed with the service Sarah gave me. We are now nearly 4 months on and my pain has gone and I can live a normal life. I can’t thank Sarah enough for giving me my life back. I would recommend to any one and have, to go see her and see if she could help”  Janice, Brixham

“Sarah has given me my life back. Plagued by high histamine levels due to the menopause, I was suffering from multiple allergic reactions (including towards the antihistamines that I had been prescribed) and horrendous hot flushes. Sarah was realistic about what could be done but a year later I find I can eat a varied diet and I am no longer anxious about food. The hot flushes are minimal and, when they do occur, are much less extreme and I no longer have to take antihistamines. Sarah’s gentle and professional approach is very reassuring and I find the sessions very relaxing” Sue, Brixham

“Acupuncture really helped ease several symptoms of the menopause after a short course with Sarah who is very professional, efficient and friendly. I can warmly recommend her practice” Jacky, Dartmouth

“Acupuncture has really helped with my sciatica. Sarah is patient and a very good listener. I always feel really positive after treatment. I would definitely recommend her” Mary, Newton Abbot

“I have felt very comfortable and relaxed during treatments. The atmosphere was very therapeutic and gave me a feeling of well being and confidence that remains with me today and furthermore I was always comfortable to raise any queries” Alan, Dartmouth

“I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah as a practitioner. Her care and concern have made my appointments very easy and comfortable to deal with. My symptoms have steadily improved over the time I have been visiting her and the whole experience has been a revelation. At no time was I uncomfortable or anxious about the treatment and I am convinced that she has helped me back to a happier and healthier life” Chris, Teignmouth
