I came into your clinic with a headache associated with tension. I had had the headache all day. It was situated at the top of my head and I could feel the pain also into my sinuses. After having acupuncture for blocked energies in the back of the neck vertebrae, the headache was gone.
With 2 weeks to go before giving birth to my first child at age 42 years, I was recommended to come to see Selwyn to help reduce my high blood pressure so that I could have a natural birth. Selwyn placed the acupuncture needles all over my back, hands and legs and suggested that while we are at it we may as well see if we could help create a placid and contented baby. Inducing acupuncture points were also used on the final week. A healthy boy was born one day after the due date and I can say he is very placid and mellow in character.
I’m from the Pacific Islands and I was in NZ getting specialist treatment such as MRI for my back problems. Over the years I have hurt my back on many occasions and now I have numbness over my sacrum area down the back of the legs and walking tires me. After my first treatment I had a lot more energy and my back pain eased to the point that I did not require my walking stick as often. My back has kept on improving with further treatments and I am very happy with my progress.
Every year in November I visit my Acupuncturist, Selwyn, for some relaxation and memory retention in preparations for school exams. I feel much more relaxed and my concentration is greatly improved after the treatments.
My husband and I are keen runners. We run marathons here in NZ and overseas e.g. New York. Over the years I have had many injuries, not always pertaining to running, but due to being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Under ACC treatments, Selwyn has been able to help heal my injured ankle after being hit from behind by a passing car.
I came to see Selwyn through a referral from a friend who had good results after seeing him. I was involved in a car accident. I got whiplash, mental confusion, memory loss, poor sense of balance and anxiety attacks. Selwyn diagnosed me as having poor energy and blood flow to the head from the whiplash. I was entitled to have treatment subsidized by ACC. After 3 Acupuncture treatments most of my symptoms had improved by 80%. After further treatments all my symptoms disappeared and I can now return to work.
I’m now completely hooked on Acupuncture. I was in so much discomfort with my Lower Back. It was painful just standing up without any movement. The only relief I could get was if I lay down flat. After my treatment it was as if I never had a problem. That was so amazing. I was able to go about my business, fly back home to California and carry on without any problems whatsoever. It was fantastic! I don’t suppose I could persuade you to open an office in San Francisco?
My daughter 7lb 5oz arrived at 0013am on the 9th June 2014. I had a very rapid labour, only making it to the hospital 5 minutes before she was born! I want to thank you for the exceptional care you provided me with my back injury during pregnancy. You really were a miracle worker! I hope to see you again in the future when I have a little more time.
