Since I was a baby I have suffered with urine infections, cystitis and Trush. When going into my late teens the infections become frequent and i was always treated with antibiotics from my GP or from the GYM clinic. At the beginning of this year 2017 I was having infections about every 2-3 months and could not put my finger on what was causing these. I also had constant thrush that even with long courses of medication would not clear up.
I decided enough was enough and I was recommended by a family friend to go and see a Chinese herbalist because she had the same symptoms i was experiencing and had great results.
So I contacted Louise and started seeing her May 2017. Louise put me on a no sugar and dairy free diet, told me to take probiotics that would reach the bladder and started me on herbal teas. Louise also treats me with acupuncture.
Within a couple of weeks I started to notice a difference, my bladder was feeling less heavy, I was urinating less and my thrush symptoms were becoming less noticeable.
It is now june and my symptoms have cleared. I can not believe that for years i have been suffering and just in a few weeks Louise has cleared my symptoms.
By doing this treatment it has not only cleared my symptoms but I feel healthier, I have more energy and generally feel better in myself.
I would say if you suffer from any of the symptoms i have mentioned, give up the antibiotics and go and see Louise and get the treatment you need.
I just want to say thank you Louise for helping me, I am now able to not have that worry of when my next urine infection is going to come. Paige, Weymouth.

“After more years than I care to remember from a child I have suffered with Eczema, sometimes more severely than others, and even under the care of the hospital.
Creams, potions, lotions and some very nasty drugs made me decide to look elsewhere for some help.
Louise has changed my life and skin from being sore and painful to manageable and almost healed.
With teas and creams and acupuncture I cannot thank Louise enough for the help she has given me.
It is proof that alternative medicine does work and I will return here for help with my Hay Fever this year if needs be. Many thanks Louise” Alison, Weyouth.
Louise has really helped with my arthritic hands, also called 'swan finger'. I had a lot of pain and terrible stiffness in the joints which left me with a poor grip. Over the last 3 years I have found the acupuncture to be really helpful in managing the pain and maintaining the flexibility in my fingers to allow me to function as normal. I continue to see Louise regularly for treatment. Valerie, Bridport.
I first came to see Louise in 2009 for severe osteoarthritis of the lower spine, which was causing me an enormous amount of pain. I was quite incapacitated with it. I had to try something to help me and was amazed by the difference it made after just 1 treatment. I now see Louise every 4-6 weeks to keep the pain at bay. Terry, Weymouth.
Unbelievably fantastic! After years of severe endometriosis dictating my life, not being able to move every month without a lot of painkillers, I'm now almost normal!! I was despairing after doctors just gave me painkillers and basically told me to 'get on with it', then my sister found you! I really wish I'd found you sooner, my life would've been made a lot easier and a lot less painful quicker! And to add the cherry on top, I'm now nearly 16 weeks pregnant - I can't thank you enough! To anybody reading this I would highly recommend Louise, she's kind and caring and works miracles with the chinese herbs and acupuncture - they will change your life! KD Dorchester
Having tried for a baby for six and a half years (including two failed IVF's and numerous tests / interventions), I stumbled upon Louise's services. Willing to give anything a go but a little bit sceptical I started a course of chinese herbs and acupuncture. Fifteen months later I was pregnant!! I am now 37 weeks pregnant and waiting for my little boy to arrive any day now. It feels like a miracle, one that wouldn't have been possible without Louise's support and intervention (with a lot of patience and positive thinking thrown in). From the bottom of our hearts my husband and I thank Louise for her help. We are so excited about welcoming our little man into the world and i'm even looking forward to the labour ;).

Louise skilfully personalised a programme of acupuncture and herbs to suit my body and mind - and it seemed to work – it regulated my cycle (I could tell by the change in my basal temperature charts), reduced my headaches and I felt calmer. I’m sure this all helped to prepare my body for pregnancy after a period of unexplained sub-fertility. Equally, if not more important, however, was Louise’s consistent belief in me when I doubted I would ever become pregnant. She was right and I have a growing bump to prove it! Thanks Louise. Donna
"Thank you very much for all your help and support over the last 18 months - we have finally been blessed with this wonderful, healthy little boy!"
"Thank you for the acupuncture treatment last year to assist with the IVF/ICSI treatment. Heres the beautiful end result."
“Acupuncture really helped my morning sickness in the early stages of pregnancy and so when I was told by my midwife that my baby was breech, I didn’t hesitate. I had one treatment and then continued the moxa at home for a few days and my baby turned. I stopped the treatment and my baby turned breech again, so I used the moxa again and now at 39 weeks the baby remains in a good position. I would recommend it to anyone.”

"Just wanted to thank you so much for everything you did for me. You're always so open, gentle and caring, I really enjoyed my treatments with you. I'm sure they played a huge part in my success"
"Just wanted to let you know that partly thanks to your amazing acupuncture, careful herb prescriptions and ever present warmth and support our little boy was born happy and healthy"
I just wanted to thank you for the support and treatment that you provided in helping us finally conceive and your care and further support in early pregnancy. I very much enjoyed the time I spent with you and valued your tenacity in reaching our goal. I am having a great pregnancy so far at 20 weeks and I have been feeling energised and positive throughout which I believe that the Chinese herbs and acupuncture have played a part.
