Lubos Tranta / Outcall Acupuncture

11 Azure House, London NW10 7FE, UK – 07453 271790

Lubos has been performing acupuncture on me for over a year now and there is very noticeable difference. I was sceptical at first that this type of Eastern medicine would work, but a friend referred me to Lubos after a glowing review and I thought I would give-it-a-go. His knowledge and training is as good as it gets and I'm delighted with the success we've achieved. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended. My friend raved about his treatments and I decided to give it a go not knowing really what to expect. But I have to say that after just one treatment I can see the difference. I have more energy and feel less tired than usual. I am looking forward to book my next appointment with Lubos.

Anna Townend Acupuncture

75 Woodfield Rd, London W5 1SR, UK – 07771 664246

Having acupuncture sessions has been a new experience for me. I had been suffering from early menopause and general anxiety for the last year. Having seen Anna on a regular basis this year I have already noticed huge improvements to my sleep and overall well being. I feel comfortable and relaxed in Anna's presence and felt that Anna was genuinely interested in listening and helping me feel better. I would recommend with no hesitation.

I was fortunate enough to be able to have treatments from Anna regularly during my pregnancy in 2016/17. She was always thorough, sensitive and reassuring. She supported both my physical and emotional health and I always felt relaxed during and after my sessions in her lovely treatment room. Pregnancy is a mine field of change for a woman and her body and Anna was able to calmly support me with the use of acupuncture. I would highly recommend her as an acupuncturist to other pregnant women and also to anyone else who is looking for a holistic practitioner to support their physical and mental wellbeing.
