Gary Hussey Acupuncturist

51A Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 3PA, UK – 01202 554098

Initially tried acupuncture with Gary for sinus problems when needing to fly. They were fixed after 2 sessions and no need for drugs! I aim to continue with treatment as I have found it helped relieve pain from osteoarthritis. Gary explains things before starting work and provides a very relaxed consultation. I always leave feeling so much better than when I arrived. Highly recommend!

When I first met Gary I had been suffering with a chronic tension headache which used to cause me pain almost everyday. After just the first session, not only did my headaches disappear, but I started feeling extremely well. Except for 2 or 3 episodes I didn't have any pain since. Gary is a really good therapist and to me it is like he did a miracle. Highly recommend.

Mark Arnold Acupuncture

3 Green Rd, Bournemouth BH9 1DU, UK – 07583 354677

I have seen Mark Arnold over the last three years at intermittent intervals, during which time Mark has helped me to get the better of long-standing chronic lower back pain, halted the early onset of arthritis in my finger joints, relieved various muscle strains, and most recently Mark has reduced my neck pain to a bearable level (with signs of further improvement to come). I should mention that these injuries arise from unsuccessful spinal fusion surgery and being on the receiving end of a serious road traffic accident. Mark always seems very knowledgeable, very understanding, and l feel enlightened by the treatment sessions. I am very happy to recommend Mark Arnold.

As a result of chronic fatigue and head pressure I left my job and could only just manage a school run, finding myself pretty much bed ridden for months. After ruling out various medical conditions it seemed this was something I would have to live with. I decided to try accupuncture with Mark and the results have been profound. In the first instance he took a thorough history, and it was a relief to talk to someone about all of my symptoms and how I had become so ill. After the first session the improvement in my energy levels was noticable. I turned out to be nervous about needles, but Mark put me at ease and I soon learned that the benefits were worth it, and that it wasn't painful. Now, after seeing Mark on a regular basis my quality of life has returned and I'm starting to get back on track. Mark has a vast knowledge of acupuncture and this combined with his enthusiasm works magic - atleast it feels like magic! I thoroughly recommend Mark and can't thank him enough for his help.
