Kiran’s story

Martin has been very helpful in addressing a few hurdles on our fertility journey. We first sought treatment to address sperm motility issues which was something we were told can never be improved but acupuncture sessions actually improved it from 25% to 75% within a very short span of time.

Acupuncture sessions were conducted in a very professional manner and Martin makes sure he understands the client’s needs and comfort levels before beginning treatment. There is no need to fear needles because you are in very safe hands with Martin!

Electro-Acupuncture for Eye Disease

Thank you Martin Dean for your electro-acupuncture treatment.  I have travelled far and wide looking for this treatment and have met many fellow sufferers and specialists along the way.  This approach is well founded abroad but I have struggled locating electro-acupuncturists in the UK who can offer any assistance. There are specialists in the US, Canada, Sweden and Germany to mention a few that have and are researching Electro-Acupuncture with fascinating results. There are numerous studies and papers available to affirm that this is a viable option to offer hope and shows some improvements in: Visual Acuity, Contrast Sensitivity, Dark Adaptation and Colour Perception.  The Electro-Acupuncture is also reported to stem off further deterioration from the disease which I myself find of up most importance due to my mother now being classed as legally blind, from the same condition.  I can only commend and thank Mr Martin Dean for his help and treatment which allows me to spend more time with my family without needing to travel abroad for this treatment on a regular basis.

Says Natalie

Acupuncture during and after pregnancy – including dietary and well being advice. The treatment and support gave me confidence during pregnancy and also helped me ‘get back on my feet’ after giving birth. Martin is very empathetic and positive. I really believe I had such a great pregnancy as a result of the treatment. I shall be returning for further courses when i wish to become pregnant again.

Calm Reliable and Understanding

For a number of years I have been a patient with Martin receiving acupuncture.
Martin is professional, very supportive, calm, reliable and understanding. I have found acupuncture works and relieves a number of ailments which pass my way. It is not painful and most of the time hardly realise that the needles are placed.

Recovery Far Beyond Expectation

I was recently diagnosed with Bells Palsy and knew that acupuncture would aid my recovery. But conventional treatment was not possible, due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Thanks to modern technology, I was able to have a virtual consultation with Martin Dean. His professional and reassuring manner, convinced me to try some self-help exercises and techniques. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness and encouragement at a time when I was feeling so vulnerable. Within three weeks, my recovery had improved far beyond my expectation. Julie.

Effective From 200 Miles Away

I have known and used Martin’s medical services over many years. His calm, patient, thorough and professional approach has always been in evidence. However during this “lockdown period” I was still able to use Martin’s expertise … but virtually. Questions are asked, my history is understood and he suggested a few key acupressure points to help me relieve my condition. All done just as effectively as before, but from 200 miles away! Well done Martin. More people need to know that Martin can help from a safe distance.

Try it you have nothing to lose

I was at my wits ends and was ready to give up! I had never tried it before and so thought I would try my chances. For anyone in doubt I would say go and try it you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I never ever thought I’d work again!

No hesitation in recommending…

I contacted Martin for some treatment on my lower back problems. From my initial contact Martin explained everything. I will be making appointments for further treatment from Martin in the future, and would have no hesitation in recommending the services he provides to friends and family.

You cannot feel it

Once the needle is in place, you cannot feel it, but sometimes have nice, warm, tingling sensations, depending on the points

Takes Covid 19 Very Seriously

Martin is very professional and I can safely say takes Covid 19 very seriously. Standards were high. I went in with a neck spasm, dreadful pain and could hardly move the neck from side to side. With his treatment I was able to move the neck again but not full mobility. By Tuesday I had regain full mobility, no less than a small miracle.
