I had pain in my lower back that was going down to my left hip.Six acupuncture treatments with Pawel helped me to reduce the pain a lot.I think the most important for me as a patient was that ,Pawel treats every patient individualy and making a diagnosis he takes into account all the aspects of a person. He asks about diet,physical and mental state and next he choses a treatment accordingly. Treatments are carried out with professionalism and care.I would definitely recommend Pawel. Sebastian Park Street

Fantastic for so many reasons... Pawel has helped me with all sorts of things relating to pregnancy and motherhood - from boosting my energy levels when pregnant, to helping induce labour, to recovery and boosting lactation whilst breast feeding. Pawel's hugely personable, a skilled acupuncturist and is great at giving more general advice to help me make the most of his methods. Much recommended, especially when you need an energy boost :-)

Can't recommend highly enough! I have been working with Isla for over a year and she has helped considerably with keeping me in condition and injury free with my weight lifting.

Isla was incredibly helpful diagnosing and treating a calf injury I picked up running. The rehabilitation was effective and the exercises i was given have helped me return to running quickly. Isla also suggest a number of other things I could be doing to reduce future risks of injury. Overall it was a very pleasant experience, in a clean and modern environment that's easy to get to with good parking. Couldn't ask for more. Will be recommnending to all St Albans Striders and anyone else who has sports niggles, or perhaps just fancies doing a pilates class!
