Acupuncture For Migraines : Louise’s Testimonial For Iain Lettice

Louise Johnston HuntI suffered from almost daily migraine attacks which were made worse when I had a brain hemorrhage approximately 14 years ago. I was struggling to find a solution to controlling the pain that didn’t involve the use of strong medication. I had tried many alternative therapies, including reiki, reflexology and shiatsu when a colleague recommended acupuncture for migraines, which I have to admit I saw as a last resort.

Within a short period of time I started to see a marked improvement from the acupuncture treatment carried out by Iain Lettice at Pagoda Acupuncture Clinic. The treatment involved weekly sessions of about an hour concentrating on relieving the migraines and releasing stress that had built up in my system as a result. I am now almost migraine free, getting the odd one now and again. I continue to use a top up acupuncture session approximately once a month, which I believe is beneficial in terms of my wellbeing.

Without hesitation I would recommend acupuncture to anyone, as it has certainly improved my quality of life, enabling me to have a continued pain free existence without the use of medication.  – Louise Johnston-Hunt
