I have endured many work (and sport) related injuries over the years but nothing like this time! After over a year of pain caused by a classic L5 S1 herniated disc (Slipped disc) confirmed by MR1 scan, I had a nerve root block procedure performed in hospital. This gave temporary relief but the pain returned worse than ever a few weeks later. I was suffering so badly I could hardly walk more than a few steps and the pain was unbearable. I had read that Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture could help this type of injury but not liking the thought of needles being used, I had dismissed it. However, with the amount of pain I was suffering I decided that I must try the treatment. I contacted Dr. Li at the clinic and after explaining my problem and how bad it was, she made a next day appointment for me to attend. The experience was nothing like I had expected. After asking for full details of my condition Dr. Carol administered my first acupuncture treatment, followed by a session of acupressure. The procedure was virtually painless and I can honestly say, quite relaxing. I was told not to expect too much after one session. I had two treatments a week for the first few weeks during which my pain was reduced considerably. I continued with the treatment and now some 10 weeks later I am completely pain free and fully mobile. This was the transformation I had hoped for but did not really expect. Life is good again. I can only thank Carol and her colleagues sincerely for the help they have given me and I would recommend her services to anybody. While attending the clinic I have spoken with other very satisfied patients who were overcoming their problems due to the expertise of Dr. Li. I will have no hesitation at all in contacting the clinic again should the need arise. Thank you so much.

Mindfulness and Relaxation at the Oast

The Oast, 62 Bell Rd, Sittingbourne ME10 4HE, UK – 01795 437710

Had an Indian Head Massage last week and have to say it was the most relaxing 45 minutes I have ever had, Angela was lovely to talk to both before and after the treatment and must say I felt very relaxed the following week. 100% recommended.

Just had my final session of the 6 weeks mindfulness course and it is absolutely brilliant. I’m now armed with ways to tackle every day stresses as well as those bigger ones that sneak up on us. I’ve learned so much about myself and learned that I need to practice stopping to be thankful for the good things in my life that I would usually take for granted and give myself more credit for the things I achieve. Ange is absolutely amazing and I can not recommend giving this a go enough!

Chinese Medical Specialist

After ten weekly sessions I am totally free of pain. Dr Li and her assistant are extremely professional and warm and caring. I would definitely go back.

I have been treated by Dr Li for over 10 years for arthritis and digestive problems. She has been a great help in enabling me to live my life without having joint replacements and in controlling the pain. Dr Li is both professional and compassionate. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She puts her patients and their needs first every time. I always receive 5 star treatment and her sunny nature brightens my day.
