Seeing Jo was one of the best things I did this year. Acupuncture helped me deal with quite a broad range of things, initially from severe PMT, then morning sickness, lower back pain, headaches and insomnia. At a time when I felt like I couldn’t resolve the problems I had through options from the GP it was great to find an alternative avenue through Jo. I found a remarkable difference in my symptoms really quickly, and always found my visits calming and reassuring. I wouldn’t hesitate in going back to Jo, or recommending her treatment to friends
