'Taru is quite simply the best all round therapist I've met over several years of managing lower back pain and stiffness. Taru brings an amazing skillset to work with targetted treatments to help overall balance as well as injured areas. Taru's gentle and insightful manner doing acupuncture has helped me relax, moving towards recovery and on to a much more flexible and strong body and an energised outlook.' DF, 44 yrs
'It was fantastic. I couldn't move from lower back pain & all down my legs. I had to seek help. I had acupuncture from Taru on my legs, down the thighs, in my ears, & then my back. I had the fire treatment too. After 12 hours it was fixed. It lasted 12 weeks, so I went again and it lasted a year. Then the pain came back so I went again and now it has lasted for good: that was 8 years ago. It worked. I have recommended it over the years as you can only go on your own experience. I don't get back pain anymore, the odd twinge, nothing like all those years ago.' RK, Builder
'Well I must say I feel amazing! Thank you so much! My hips and pelvis haven't felt as mobile as they do this morning for years. It's so good to actually be able to move them around and not be in constant pain. As you know I have been suffering for such a long time. Also, my ankle swelling has really gone down and I can actually see my ankle bone!
I feel marvellous, thank you! I will definitely be in again for some more of your wonderful treatment. So glad I've found you & your massage/acupuncture mix.' JL, 43 yrs
'I arrived at Taru's with a very painful 'frozen shoulder' type condition in dire need of help. I walked away from there greatly reeleived and on the way to recovery having had an acupuncture treatment. After the 2nd session I was almost back to normal. The 3rd treatment involved acupuncture and shoulder and back massage and I feel wonderful now & pain free! I was treated with empathy, kindness, and caring. I couldn't recommend Taru's treatment highly enough. ' MN
'Taru was a wonderful help. I struggled with pain in my jaw and ear which has been greatly relieved after my session with her. I will not hestitate in using her again should any other ailments occur!' GM
'I cannot praise Taru highly enough. She is warm, attentive, and extremely thorough. The 3 treatments progressively relieved the muscle pain that had been troubling me for months since a fall onto my right shoulder.' GT
'Taru is incredible, she is absolutely devoted to your wellbeing and is such a genuine force for good in this space and for your health. Can not speak highly enough' NS
'After having had many treatments from many practitioners over the years, I'm so glad to have found Taru. I greatly appreciate her adaptability and the way that the depth and breadth of her skillset means she's able to flex her approach with each visit to give you the very best treatment to address that day's challenges. As someone with a chronic helath condition this means the world to me. Added to this, Taru is simply one of those people yo feel better for being around. Her empathy & desire to help are very special & I always leave Taru's treatment room with considerably less pain & more joy.' PM
'I went to Taru having never experienced acupuncture before & I was a bit nervous about it. After meeting Taru I had nothing to worry about as she was friendly and kind-hearted. She explained everything to me and made the experience enjoyable! The treatment was tailored to my needs physically and emotionally. I left feeling a dramatic difference in my stress levels and felt so calm. I will definitely be returning again and recommend to everyone :)' PW
'I have been going to Taru for a couple of years, for massages and acupuncture. I have found her to be very professional in every aspect, explaining what each procedure is for, and the benefits of them. In my opinion I could not have wished for a nicer person.' GC, 73 yrs
Taru is a warm and friendly person & her massage was just what I needed. She released the tension from my neck, shoulders and lower back, and sent me into a state of dreamy relaxation. She left me feeling light and happy! I'll definitely be back for another treatment.'

'I went for several different problems: for massage for back pain then finding I could trust to share about digestive problems & pain I have had daily for 15 years. Because I could combine treatments in different ways, massage & acupuncture, & then Reiki at the end of sessions, it gives me so much positive energy that the pain is less and less in just 10 weeks & I can handle any left over discomfort better.
I feel in such a good mood that the pain goes down further: it's a circle, each helps the other. Because the right points are stimulated through the treatments they have no choice, they have to change for the better. The bloating went first, then each week more & more benefit. My psychological state affects the stomach pain. If I am calm inside with more good energy, not all that nervousness & fear, that helps and no surgery can help in that way. These things work when you find the right person to work with, with the right understanding, with the right approach.'
