What patients say

I just wanted to let you know that, because of the acupuncture sessions over the last 6 months, I am happy and relieved to be almost completely free of the debilitating daily migraines and headaches. I came in hope rather than expectation but have been able to come off the strong medication prescribed to deal with the problem. Thanks, I’m very grateful.

I had been told by so many friends who also suffered with migraines to try Acupuncture. I bit the bullet and began to look for a local practising acupuncturist. My first impressions of Caroline was, warm, professional and very knowledgeable on the physical and mental workings of the human being. I began a weekly program of acupuncture targeting the migraine trigger points and slowly the attacks lessened along with their level of intensity. To take an hour at of one’s week to have acupuncture or suffer 3 days in a dark room heavily sedated was and is a no brainier. Acupuncture has turned my quality life around. I do still get headaches that I can function with rather than a 3 day period of the most acute pain that only very high levels of pain killers can ease some discomfort. I am a complete convert.

I first went to Caroline several months ago for a trapped nerve in my back which had not been successfully treated by other methods. I also had an extremely large oedema on the outside of my thigh which was caused by a horse rolling on me several years ago.

Caroline explained the concept of acupuncture in clear and concise terms. Her friendly manner every time I have an appointment makes it a pleasure to attend. My trapped nerve is now a thing of the past and my oedema is no longer huge and unsightly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Caroline’s service.

I was suffering with terrible morning sickness and was in and out of hospital due to the dehydration associated with this. A midwife recommended I try Acupuncture. Being new to Acupuncture I did not know what to expect however, I was amazed with the results. Caroline has an extremely gentle and caring manner and listened intently about my problem. Even after the first session I noticed the difference and have been a regular every since. Caroline is highly competent in what she does and I would (and have) strongly recommend her!

I visited Caroline Somp at the Healthway surgery in Alresford 2 weeks ago as I was suffering from a sore lower back which had morphed into severe sciatica and I was in real pain and discomfort. I visited her at 2pm where I was seen immediately and having had a very thorough consultation for about 20 minutes Caroline begin my acupuncture treatment which was totally pain free and very efficiently carried out. I left the surgery at 2.50pm without any feeling of the Sciatica in any way it was quite extraordinary it was a though I was a different person. I have since returned to Caroline in order to help the mild back pain that was left and after my second visit the pain has now completely gone. I cannot recommend Caroline more highly she is highly professional and very talented. Before this event I was fairly sceptical about acupuncture but was desperate enough to try anything, now she will be my first port of call.

After an acupuncture session with Caroline I felt well balanced, both bodily and mentally. Caroline has a gentle nature and is a very caring person. She is extremely professional and makes you feel you’re in safe hands with someone who knows what they’re doing and who cares for your well being.

I have had treatments with Caroline over a period of 10 months and in that time have found her to be very professional, efficient and more importantly, caring. She is very gentle and kind, and takes the time to listen to my problems and really hear what I say.

An element of healing takes place even before the treatment begins – for one immediately feels that within Caroline exists a harmonious balance.

In her presence one also feels a deep sense of nurture and compassion, yet she remains neutral and efficient throughout the treatment. Along with her extensive knowledge of acupuncture and chinese medicine, she posesses an intuitive understanding of the individual and where nourishment is needed.

The treatment is gentle and within minutes one feels the affects within both the body and mind. One can arrive feeling tense, anxious and emotionally exhausted, yet emerge with a feeling of serenity and joy. The body feels calm and relaxed, free of tension and replenished.

Of all the acupuncture treatments I have experienced in the past, there is something unique here and I would highly recommend a visit – even for the slightest physical or emotional imbalance in one’s life.

Thank you Caroline!

I felt relaxed and well looked after in Caroline’s friendly and professional care. She has helped me heal and balance a wide range of conditions. After each treatment I have felt very good. Highly recommended!
