” Some very kind words from some very happy patients and clients “
“Ian has treated me on several occasions with acupuncture and physiotherapy. One of the most amazing occasions was after I had broken my foot. The immobilisation and repair process left me with a stiff, weak ankle and foot. Walking was painful and activities such as driving and being at work were almost impossible.
I was really surprised at the skilled application of physiotherapy techniques and acupuncture. The rehabilitation process became rapid and within a few days, I was amazed at how my function returned. Such light and pain-free techniques were so effective and the rehabilitation regime that I was given was so straightforward to implement but the results were so dramatic. The biggest impact was how the fear of the disability was taken away and my confidence restored.
I would have no hesitation I recommending Ian and Mariko Clinic, I felt I was in very safe hands.”
“The healing started the moment Ian entered the room. He was totally focused on me and he carefully listened to my story. He posed thoughtful questions to clarify all the facets of my medical problems. Ian truly has a passion for his field of work. His years of experience really shines through. Anyone with any doubts about the effectiveness of acupuncture will leave Ian a believer judging by the wonderful results I have received. Acupuncture has been the only thing that has given me any long term relief from ongoing fibromyalgia pain. In one session he is able to accomplish what would take weeks of physical therapy and medication. I highly recommend that anyone with pain or anxiety to give him a call. You won’t be disappointed. Ian tells me Mariko means ” true ” and Ian has been a ‘Mariko’ (true) blessing to me”
“I have been seeing Ian Felix for many years to have acupuncture for stress/anxiety which he uses alongside manipulation. Both have kept me balanced in an otherwise stressful life and without the acupuncture, I don’t think I would have coped the last few years. Ian has a very calm outlook and my anxiety is often reduced the moment I walk into his clinic. He is professional and caring and listens to me with no rush.
I have recently also had facial enhancement with Ian using the micro-needling and noticed a huge lift to my face after one treatment. My skin is brighter and much softer. I am returning for more treatment soon. Ian has certainly kept me sane and in good health for many years and now I’m looking younger too!”
“I’ve had several facial treatments now and the reason for my interest is that it enhances the clarity of my skin. Admittedly, I am only in my late twenties, but the reason for my choice of this type of treatment is that it’s natural and my skin is looking so much better! I have noticed a huge difference with each treatment and am about to start a further course looking at my stretch marks on my legs”
