After having lower back pain for two years and appointments to a physiotherapist, osteopath, exercise classes and a scan I was advised by my G.P to try acupuncture. I have had several sessions with Diane and can feel the benefits. I only wish I had gone earlier.

I recently contacted Diane for a initial consultation about on going pain in my left knee & hands. After 5 sessions I have noticed great improvement. Diane was professional throughout. I highly recommend acupuncture as a alternative to going down the route of endless painkiller drugs. Highly recommend Diane for her care & professional approach.

I was suffering badly from a long spell of Interstitial cystitis and decided to give acupuncture a try – Diane was highly recommended to me by a friend. I began my initial weekly treatment for 6 weeks at the end of August, after the success of the treatment, my visits became roughly every other week and now I only need a ‘top up’ session every 3 – 4 weeks! To me – the treatment has been a massive success – had I known the difference acupuncture could make to my specific issues and general well-being I would have tried it out years ago! Diane has not only helped me with my cystitis issues but also cured my backache, shoulder/neck pain and boosted my immune system. I have to admit I was quite nervous about the needles in the beginning, but Diane has a gentle touch and is very considerate of any anxiety one might experience and makes every effort to make you feel as comfortable as possible. After every session I always feel happy and better within myself (even if I hadn’t actually noticed otherwise prior to the session). Diane has a friendly, calming and caring demeanour with a professional approach and I would recommended her services without any hesitation. Thank you Diane for make such a difference to my happiness and well-being!

I see Diane on a regular basis to treat my digestive problems and anxiety. I have seen great progress and feel very grateful for the results I have experienced. I highly recommend Diane, she is very attentive and professional and I have felt very comfortable and relaxed in every session. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to start an acupuncture treatment with her.

I usually don't write any reviews, but after reading some bad reviews here I decided I have to share my experience with this place. Now it's been a month after my last session and I feel great. I came here with breathing problem. I was taking antibiotics since last December, I was using an inhaler every day, nothing helped. I felt worse and worse everyday. After the first session I started to feel better, I didn't have to use my inhaler anymore, no more coughing! I had 5 lessons in total, after the second one I noticed that I'm starting to lose weight as well! I lost almost 8 pounds already and I feel more energy. I'm very grateful to Dr. Linda who helped me a lot. Would highly recommend.

I have been attending this clinic for the last ten years and can thoroughly recommend practitioner Ms yuihuihe /Linda Galati as a highly competent practitioner. She has successfully treated myself and friends of mine for a range of ailments. As an Australian where TCM is regulated and set to a high standard and where I have also had treatment I can with authority say that she is one of the best TCM doctors I have had the fortune to come across in London. She attended university in China where she also studied Traditional Chinese as well as Western medicine.
