Acupuncture

herbs song chinese medicine & acupuncture

125a High St, West Wickham BR4 0LT, UK – 020 8776 2479

I would completely recommend 'Herbs Song Chinese Medicine centre'.

Ive had a skin problem for a while and The Doctors basically diagnosed as stress and at best gave me some very strong cortisone cream , I even paid a fortune to go to a private consultant. All this did not work ... Unbelievably I went to Mr Song and in 2 weeks it had virtually cleared up. And cost £55 for 2 sessions and 4 lots of medicine, that's all. Anyone with a skin problem or issue I would THROUGHLY recommend seeing Dr Song as he is great and very honest and it really worked for me.

Denise Callaghan MBAcC

46 London Ln, Bromley BR1 4HE, UK – 020 8313 0510

Absolutely excellent practice. Cured a problem with my arm before and now working on a different issue with positive results showing very rapidly. I highly recommend Denise for any treatment involving osteopathy or acupuncture.

I found out about Denise because she successfully treated my husband. I then broke my wrist and went to Denise for treatment. Denise has really accelerated my recovery. A caring and professional service from someone, who inspires confidence and clearly demonstrates that she understands the subject matter. In short, highly recommended.

Active Life Osteopathy

84 College Rd, Bromley BR1 3PE, UK – 020 8315 0599

Highly recommended. first time with a osteopath. I had my first consultation today with Alys Bailey and I am very happy, I've been suffering of neck pain, cervical, for few years, obviously today was just the first visit but I had a really nice feeling and I'm looking forward to go back again.

Fantastic service. All three Osteopaths are brilliant. Over the years many of my back and hamstring complaints have been resolved. Thoroughly recommend to everyone!

Bromley Herbal Clinic - Medical Herbalist

Natural Health Hut, Bromley Health Store, 8 Widmore Road, Bromley BR1 1RY, UK – 07947 785911

I took my daughter to see Karen after a friend recommended her to me. As I had never been to see a herbalist before I wasn't sure what to expect but Karen was great at listening and put me at ease. My daughter's eczema is improving and we no longer use steroid creams. Would absolutely recommend her.

Karen was a great listener and really seemed to understand my problems. I am really pleased that the herbs she prescribed have improved my condition - I would definitely recommend her.

Bromley Food Intolerance and Allergy Testing Clinic

55 Tweedy Rd, Bromley BR1 3NH, UK – 020 8313 1577

After a bad back injury 3 years ago I suffered 18 months of severe sciatica. During this period I visited various osteopaths, sports injury specialists and was even told by a top consultant surgeon that the removal of 2 discs was the only option. Thank God I stumbled upon Trevor at the TS clinic. When I told him of the injury history he said without hesitation " no problem I can make you better" and he did exactly that!! After 3 treatments of acupuncture I was completely cured. No more back pain, no more sciatica. In the last week I visited Trevor about a joint pain in my shoulder/ chest which again an osteopath could not remedy. I am being 100% honest in saying I feel 100% cured. I am so impressed with Trevor that I'm bringing my mother over from Ireland so he can help with her severe arthritis.

this clinic is very wonderful i was very pleased about it i dont think that other users should promote there own workplace and post bad reviews about others 2. but i had herbal medicine and i was very pleased about the results.
