Acupuncture for Infertility

‘My wife and I were trying to conceive for around 2 years and were recommended to go and see Toni after two mutual friends had both fell pregnant after receiving acupuncture treatment for failing to conceive, after being in a similar situation. On our first appointment, Toni was extremely comforting and reassuring given the sensitivity of the subject, which was the first time we had received this kind of approach, after having seen a few different professionals through the NHS. After roughly 5 months of treatments (some for myself included), my wife fell pregnant naturally. Our son is now two months old and is healthy. We couldn't be more happy.’

Acupuncture for recurrent urinary tract infections

In 2015 I was suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections and in between times the constant urge to go to the toilet. It was getting so bad that at times I couldn't last more than 15 minutes without the the urge to pee. It was painful, constantly on my mind and causing real problems at work and socially. I was getting very stressed thinking about living with this constant pain and urge to pee every day forever. I also got quite ill with a chest infection and the antibiotics I was taking caused bloating and inflammation. I was not in a good way.

A friend recommended Toni to me and after a couple of treatments I started to feel the benefit. After 6 months, I was back to my usual self and much happier. I haven't had a urine infection for nearly 15 months and don't need to worry anymore.

I now see Toni on a regular basis once every six weeks to keep everything under control. I also feel there have been additional health benefits from having the acupuncture. Generally I am a lot healthier and have more energy than before!

Thank you so much Toni!

Acupuncture for back pain

Toni Tucker has recently concluded a 3 month term of treatment for my back very successfully. 

I have had 2 laminectomies and 1 discectomy over 30 years, so as a result have had a very touch back.  This is as a result of falling down and impacting the discs at the lower back on some brick steps in the 1970’s. Now I know what to do or not do, but  very occasionally I do something which triggers off intense nerve pain and sciatica in my right leg, as on holiday this year.

Acupuncture is the only form of treatment which is successful and this is the 2 nd time in 5 years that Toni has helped me out successfully and I am most grateful to her!

Acupuncture for Induction of Labour

I was one week overdue and had had 2 stretch & sweeps that hadn't had an effect although I was 2-3cm dilated so I was keen to get labour progressing. The acupuncture treatment on the evening of Sunday 25th Sept was very relaxing and worked really well, my baby was 2/5 engaged before the treatment and was fully engaged by the end!

The following morning I had a third stretch & sweep and my labour began around an hour later (approx 1pm on 26th Sept). I had a very relaxed early stage labour at home and after doing some walking and having a bath I went into hospital at 2am on 27th Sept at 5cm dilated. I spent my time at the hospital in the birthing pool and gave birth to a healthy little girl (Lily 7lb2oz) at 5:47am on Tuesday 27th September. I managed the labour without pain relief and had no tearing/stitches!

Many thanks for all your help Toni!

Treatment for Interstitial Cystitis

I suffered from the debilitating condition of Interstitial Cystitis for a few years. Through the internet, I found a local Practitioner who specialised in this field through treatment with traditional acupuncture.

My acupuncture treatment for interstitial cystitis started two and half years ago and has been very successful. Toni is a very professional and knowledgeable practitioner. I felt very comfortable and at ease in the clinic. The clinic offers a place of calm and warmth. I continue to have acupuncture every few weeks, as I feel it helps with my sense of wellbeing.

I am very grateful that I have found the clinic and now symptoms free.

Acupuncture for Depression

I have had early menopause for more than three years. I have been suffering from depression for around 2 years. I had help from the NHS but with no improvement in my symptoms. I felt so low and depressed and had suicidal thoughts. I had no appetite, and was having trouble sleeping.

I was lucky enough to find Toni, and attended her acupuncture clinic, to try and help with my condition. After a course of acupuncture, I feel completely different – I am eating very well, sleeping much better and after 2 – 3 months I can see a total change in my body, my mood and my life. I feel happy every day, and have started to enjoy everything around me again. I even started to enjoy my job, which I was beginning to hate before.

Thank you so much to my lovely Toni. I am lucky to have met you and am thankful to you every day.

Feedback for the treatment of Interstitial Cystitis

You have saved my life!

It  is hard to put into words all you have done for me, and in turn my family.  At best, I had hoped that you would be able to take some of my chronic pelvic/bladder pain away so that I could just function on a basic level and not be bed bound, house bound and constantly fatigued.  However, meeting you has completely changed my outlook on life and my family’s future, because I am not in constant pain anymore.

I now wake with a smile on my face and no longer dread the day ahead, just praying to get through to the end of the day.  I adore my children but it has been truly heartbreaking that I could not pick them up and hold them close due to the pain.  However, I can now happily swing them around and enjoy simple pleasures of playing with them and being the mummy I want and have longed to be for so long.  You have changed the course of my life to a  route of happiness that I never thought I would travel down.

Acupuncture for Interstitial Cystitis

I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from Toni since January 2014. I was in bad way emotionally and physically. I had been diagnosed with IC (interstitial cystitis) and the doctors had not been much help, so wanted to try acupuncture. From the first treatment I felt better emotionally and Toni is lovely and put me at ease straight away. I continue to have less pain in my bladder after each treatment, and I am now more or less pain-free and no longer have  the urethral pain.

The treatments are so relaxing and you always come away feeling positive. I am very grateful to Toni and will continue to go for treatments because I have received many positive benefits and reduction in IC symptoms.
Thank you

My treatment for IC

Thanks to Toni Tucker for everything she has done for me in such a short space of time, I was losing all hopes for my future, but now I can see the light at the end of the dark tunnel I was in and I am sure with time I will recover even if not one hundred percent, long gone all the pain and depression the rest will follow.
Forever I will be grateful.

Acupuncture for Interstitial Cystitis

I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis four years ago.  I ran the gauntlet of NHS and private therapies to no avail and it was during a particularly bad ‘flare’ (all who have experienced IC will be aware of the pain involved) that I searched frantically on the internet for someone to help me.  I refused to believe that there was nothing that could be done.   Toni Tucker’s name kept appearing and as her testimonials seemed to offer some hope I emailed and she replied, practically by return.  I know very little about acupuncture and had no expectations of its efficacy.  Toni’s clinic is beautifully calm and her expertise,  and professionalism and obvious knowledge and skills  are apparent from the outset. 

She assured me that she could help and that I would feel immeasurably better but countered that by stating that she couldn’t ‘cure’ me as IC is incurable.  Initially I felt no distinct improvement.  I was also medicating with strong pain relief which I was trying to reduce on Toni’s advice as it would hinder the body’s ability to heal.  However two thirds of the way through and barely perceptibly I began to feel that I could go do all sorts of things denied to me during the last four years.  I had spent a lot of time curled up on the sofa not wanting to get involved in life, worrying about my dependency on my husband and in constant pain.  My medication is now on its lowest ever level and I am even thinking that I can do without it completely!  I am eating and drinking normally, although I am still a little wary of alcohol, my symptoms are barely there .  I am unable to express how grateful I am, to Toni, for giving me the confidence and health to enjoy the next part of my life . I am continuing see Toni till my immune system is nearly and fully repaired.

Acupuncture for Interstitial Cystitis

I would like to say thank you to Toni for all the time and effort she put in on my behalf.  Since starting my treatment with her a year ago, my life has changed so much.  She gave me hope when all other health professionals did not.  I am so much better than when I first met her.  My life is so much richer all because of Toni’s care and treatment.

Interstitial Cystitis

I had been suffering from Interstitial Cystitis, which is completely debilitating. Chronic Bad health has devastating effects on emotional wellbeing, so restoration of good health is conversely immensely therapeutic, plus each acupuncture session was like a stress buster!

I tried everything western medicine had to offer before I found Toni, and nothing had worked. After a course of treatment I am now symptom-free, which I believe is entirely due to acupuncture. Acupuncture was 100% successful whereas western medicine was 0%. I would recommend Toni to everyone any anyone!

Successful acupuncture treatment for repeated bacterial cystitis

I am 29 years old and have been suffering with recurrent bladder infections for 13 years. Each time an episode occurred, I was advised to take antibiotics by my doctor but they kept coming back. At my worst point I was having two attacks a month. It wasn’t clear as to the cause of the infections however sexual intercourse was a common  contributor. I underwent two bladder cystoscopies in hospital yet nothing could be found to explain why I was having them.

On advice from a friend, I decided to look into acupuncture as an alternative treatment and I came across Toni Tucker in a newspaper article, about specialising in bladder disorders/bacterial cystitis. I went along to see her at The Berkshire Health Clinic in Maidenhead.  After my first session which involved a consultation and a treatment I felt completely at ease, not only with the treatment itself but having the relief and knowledge that I wasn’t alone, as many others who have had treatment from Toni at The Berkshire Health Clinic have been relieved of their symptoms and the occurrences.

Toni got to work on building up my immune system, which had been affected from the years of taking antibiotics, in order to help my body deal with bacteria. During this time, she advised me and my husband to use contraceptives so as not to cause any irritation and consequently a bladder infection. Just by changing this, I was able to have intercourse without any problems. The more sessions I had the more I felt my body reacting to the acupuncture in a positive way. Having only had one infection in around 5 months I am now able to have intercourse without any contraceptives. I continue to see Toni in the hope to improve things further and prepare myself for the possibility of starting a family.

I was at my lowest point with my bladder infections when I decided to turn to acupuncture and looking back now I wish I had done it sooner. I have seen the results for myself and I can now see how it has changed my life for the better and has given me hope. Toni Tucker and the work that she does has been instrumental in this positive change in my life and I can’t thank her enough.

Cystitis & Overactive Bladder

After many years of visits to Consultant gynaecologist regarding Cystitis & overactive bladder, which resulted in three bladder stretches, lots of intense pain, followed by lots of pain killers, and endless courses of the latest antibiotics which never seemed to solve the basic problem.

The last Consultant I went to see at the Independent Hospital Reading, was Mr Foley who said there were a few options I could try, most of which I had already endured, he suggested I try Acupuncture, as he was recommending difficult cases to a very accomplished Acupuncturist Toni Tucker at her Berkshire Health Clinic.

I contacted Toni, such a sweet, friendly lady who put me at ease straight away, I began the treatment sessions and gradually the pain and the condition began to disappear, such that I have made a full recovery.

Unfortunately about a year ago I lost the sight in my right eye due to a blood clot in the artery feeding the eye. The Doctors conclusion was that I would never see anything in that eye again.

I contacted Toni Tucker who fitted us in the same day, as it was important to start treatment as quickly as possible, to prevent the blood clot damaging the back of my eye (retina), and after 2 sessions I got my sight partially back and eventually, I could see to the front and one side, with a slight shadow remaining on the other side of my eye. My eye is improving all the time.

Pregnancy and Interstitial Cystitis

I first attended the clinic last year 2011 after suffering from frequent bladder infections and 2 miscarriages. I went to have weekly treatment with Toni which helped me greatly and after about 2months I became pregnant again and I had further treatment weekly with Toni to help sustain my pregnancy and I am delighted to say I am now 38weeks pregnant, thanks to Toni with the help of the acupuncture.

I found Toni to be very professional and reassuring in all her care she provided for me. I would truly recommend her for bladder problems and conception issues as I truly believe in acupuncture.

I suffered from repeated bacterial cystitis for 2  - 3 years.

Since receiving acupuncture for bladder infections, I have been able to come off antibiotics. Over the course of the sessions (3 months) I have been in a lot less pain with my bladder and have not had cystitis for the last few months.  It has been a gradual change but a huge change  and improvement from when I first visited Toni.   I am now symptom-free and have decided to continue seeing Toni every 3 months to ensure my immune system remains on a high note.!

Interstitial Cystitis

I started seeing Toni in the very early stages of my pregnancy as I had not long before found I was suffering from the condition IC.

It was such a relief to find Toni, she helped me through my entire pregnancy and without her help I would not have been able to cope. I saw her once a week throughout and the acupuncture treatment I received helped to manage my IC symptoms but I also benefitted from general well being.

Following my successful pregnancy I feel a lot better and my symptoms have lessened.

I am continuing treatment with Toni on an adhoc basis to help manage any few symptoms of IC that I have. I am so appreciative of all the help she have me and would recommend anyone suffering from similar problems to seek her help.

Interstitial Cystitis

I first started to experience the symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis 5 years ago. I got a urine infection that effectively never went away. I ended up doing a self diagnosis on the web as I was ignored for nearly 18 months after being told I didn’t have any signs of bacteria and I was just stressed. My bladder was sore and bleeding and I was in constant pain with burning and frequency. My life was over as I knew it and nobody seemed to want to help me.

Eventually, I made such a fuss they gave me a cystoscopy, which confirmed my suspicions. There was no treatment though and I became depressed and withdrawn.  

After a lot of research, I travelled to the USA to see a nutritionist specialising in IC. I got a lot more comfortable but 5 years on, the programme didn’t get me past a certain level of pain and urgency. I couldn’t shake it off. It was then I found Toni Tucker. I was very sceptical as I have managed this disease for a long time now, but I was desperate to feel better. I have now had 7 sessions of acupuncture with Toni, and it has really brought me in to balance. After the first couple of sessions, I had a day after the treatment of feeling slightly worse, which decreased as the time went on. My urgency now is much improved, and my bladder which is usually constantly ‘sore’ feels so much better. I am really pleased with the results and it was lovely to talk to someone face to face who is so knowledgeable about the disease. That in itself was a relief as so many urologists don’t have a clue!

I am really glad I found Toni when I did…as I had all but given up on ever feeling normal. An added bonus of the treatment is that you feel more energised, and even my sinus’s which have been blocked for the last 2 years have cleared. I am so glad I don’t have to take mountains of supplements anymore, and I also eat what I like without my bladder becoming inflamed and sore. I am so grateful to Toni for her expertise, her good nature and for helping me getting my life back, I can’t recommend her enough

Acupuncture for IC

Treatment provided by Toni Tucker Specialist in IC.
I would like to encourage anyone with IC to try acupuncture. I have benefited hugely. I am off mostly all of my medication,and am virtually sympton free now. I had tried various other treatments, but nothing came close to the positive effect of the acupuncture. I now no longer have urine infections,as it has boosted my immune system as well.

Acupuncture Treatment for IC and Hypertension

Toni has been treating me for interstitial cystitis very successfully for several months. My symptoms stared to improve soon after treatment started and I am now able to lead a normal life. It is such a relief to be able to sleep through the night, travel and have a social life again.

As Toni treats holistically, she was also concerned about my hypertension and has been treating this during our sessions. My blood pressure has definitely improved.

On a recent session I mentioned that I was concerned that my glaucoma was getting worse and the medication I was taking did not seem to be reducing the eye pressures. She began to treat me for this too and my eye pressure was found to be substantially reduced on my last visit to the hospital. I am very grateful to Toni for all the care and trouble she has taken to improve my health.

Acupuncture for IC

About 7 weeks ago all I wanted was to die! I even attempted to write my suicide note. I was so bad; I didn't enjoy life any more. I was stuck at home with pain. I am newly married and I couldn't even be intimate with my husband. I couldn't travel or go out with my friends. As a social butterfly I was always the one organising events..

This horrible illness had stopped all that good life. I have tried everything,installations,herbal stuff ,elmiron aloe vera etc but nothing helped Then I started having Acupuncture with Tony Tucker .She is amazing .I have only had 5 treatments with her ,I have to add price is very reasonable ,I am 60% better already. I almost got my life back. She is full of knowledge about the IC. Finally I am being treated by someone who understands. She is great friendly, kind and magical with her hands and needles!

I am writing this because I know how bad it gets and I want other IC sufferers to know there is hope; you can have your life back. I am another living proof of it.

IC and Pregnancy

I first starting acupuncture treatment with Toni about five years ago, after being diagnosed with interstitial cysistis. I started out with an exclusion diet, this helped a little but just a little and then the consultant suggested I try acupuncture with Toni. After just a couple of treatments things were much improved - the pain associated with the condition was gone and frequency of needing to go was much reduced, sometimes I'd even get through a whole night without waking up to go. I felt like a new person and was able to re-introduce much of the food I'd excluded.

I've continued acupuncture on and off with Toni ever since - going back as and when symptoms start up again. Toni has also treated me through two pregnancies, combining her experience in both acupuncture and midwifery. I found acupuncture espec beneficial in my second pregnancy, i felt very naueous and exhausted and it helped re-energise me. I also had two very straightforward and quick 'natural' delieveries and I'm confident that treatments with Toni in the weeks prior contributed to this.

Acupuncture for Infertility
I first came to see Toni on the back of a recommendation from a friend after trying for a baby for a year with no luck. My periods were irregular and hormones unbalanced as a result of suspected polycystic ovaries. After just one month of weekly sessions my period became regular, temperature balanced and skin cleared up. After just 8 weeks of sessions with Toni I was pregnant! I will be recommending Toni's services to all of my friends and family, not only is it a great way to get away from it all and relax - it really works. I can’t thank Toni enough and am looking forward to seeing her again towards the end of my pregnancy for a few more sessions to prepare for a natural labour.

Painful Bladder Syndrome
At the age of 21 I was diagnosed with Painful Bladder Syndrome. After two years of pain, invasive investigations, multiple medications, painful bladder installations and a bladder stretch I was told by my Urology consultant that he could recommend no further treatment and his advice was to continue with the daily strong pain medication.

Thank goodness I found out about Toni Tucker. After just two acupuncture sessions the pain was significantly reduced and I was able to drastically cut down the amount of pain medication I was taking. Toni has helped me to get back to university and take up my studies once more.

I am so grateful for Toni Tuckers skills and care, her treatment is working for me when all else has failed. I would recommend her to anyone suffering from this painful and debilitating condition

Acupuncture for Overdue pregnancy
I went to see Toni as I was 8 days overdue with my pregnancy and had been told by my midwifery team  that the baby was lying back to back and my cervix was posterior closed I need to see the consultant for assessment and induction of my labour , I became very apprehensive and the thought of not being able to have a natural birth , through recommendation and my own search I went to see Toni a midwife and acupuncturist with years of experience in this field , great decision after 2 sessions  I was so relaxed and my contractions  kicked in.

I didn't need to see the consultant after all. I went into spontaneous labour after two sessions of acupuncture and delivered naturally a beautiful baby girl. I couldn't believe it when I arrived and the midwife said I was 6 centimetres dilated and baby had turned to a correct position!!

I am absolutely amazed and still in shock as I didn't think it would happen naturally. I can't thank you enough for your help. Your acupuncture treatment to help me with my labour  worked wonders for us.

My acupuncture treatment for pelvic pain affecting my bladder
During the delivery of my daughter in 2012 I suffered what was called a third degree tear. Since then I have been suffering from pain in the area of my pelvic floor.  The pain affected my bladder and I started having problems with not being able to empty my bladder and a constant pain inside my bladder.  My life after having a baby was intolerable. Medications and local applications did not help me.  I was in constant pain which was affecting my whole life.
Following my search of the internet, I went to the Berkshire Health Clinic and I met Toni Tucker who as an experienced midwife and acupuncturist, is well known for her expertise in treating bladder problems and pelvic pain. 
I had 8 sessions of acupuncture treatment and my goodness it was so effective.  Throughout the weeks my symptoms have progressively improved and I now have no bladder symptoms and no pain.  I am resuming a normal lifestyle and emotionally positive about my future.
I really would like to rate the traditional acupuncture I received from Toni, well above the western medicine that I was given.  Thank you Toni.

IC and Bladder Problems
I was ill with painful bladder syndrome, chronic cystitis, pelvic floor dysfunction and was at the end of my tether when I came across Toni. A friend, a pelvic floor physio named Maria Elliot, mentioned that many of her patients had been treated by Toni and that they had got immeasurably better. After calling Toni, she set up an appointment in London and assured me that I would get better, that I was in safe hands. From that moment on I felt completely cared for. Toni's knowledge of acupuncture is so profound that she assessed my body and after the first treatment with her I started feeling better. The process is not simple and it does take time, but all the while it is a pleasure to visit the clinic in Maidenhead, that has such healing energy. If it wasn't for Toni, I don't know what I would have done. Emotionally she saved me 100%!

Toni works hard for her patients and her technique is both effective and unique. Slowly through acupuncture my body regained it's natural balance of energy and the pain in the bladder lessened, my infections stopped, my immune system became stronger and finally my pelvic floor pain was greatly reduced. I am still healing to date but I feel I am 90% there.

Thank you so much, Toni.

Bladder Pain
I had been suffering with constant bladder pain and frequency for nearly two years, caused by recurrent infections. I was at my wits end and no western medical route seemed to help, in fact they made me worse and caused nasty side effects. I found out that Toni had helped many others with chronic bladder problems, so I was willing to give it a go, despite not having ever tired alternative medicine before. Toni is one in a million, and has given me my life back and opened my eyes to the incredible power of acupuncture. Toni is a great listener and thanks to her expertise I'm now pretty much back to normal after just 6 months! Thank you so much Toni!

Bladder Problems
I have had acupuncture treatment with Toni on and off over the last seven years. I tried acupuncture for a frustrating bladder condition - I found it greatly alleviated the symptoms with some improvement noticeable after the first few sessions.

After some time I no longer required treatment as the treatment had eased the condition making it manageable. I've also appreciated the aid of acupuncture during three pregnancies - I've used it to help with tiredness, general wellbeing and once to induce labour.

I'd like to say a big thanks to Toni - the acupuncture treatment has made a great difference to my quality of life and it's delivered with such a warm and friendly welcome!

Treatment for Pregnancy Nausea
I was 7 weeks pregnant and really struggling with nausea which I experienced all day and anxiety following two miscarriages. This meant juggling my job and family, including a toddler of 2.5yrs, extremely difficult to cope with.

Toni gave me four sessions of acupuncture which I found significantly reduced my nausea and was extremely calming and relaxing. Toni's blend of her background as a health professional and her knowledge and expertise in the use of this eastern chinese philosophy really suited my needs.

She is highly professional as well and kind and empathetic and I would not hesitate to visit her for further treatment or reccomend her acupuncture clinic.

Many Thanks Toni for your treatment and kindness....I am now 26 wks pregnant, happy and healthy!

Acupuncture During Pregnancy
Here are my thoughts on acupuncture during pregnancy. I got to the point where my back was so bad that I couldn't sit down without experiencing great pain. I didn't know what to do until a friend recommended Toni. Acupuncture not only helped me physically, but also emotionally as I was feeling incredibly helpless and pretty down about the situation. It was scary to think I was going to start motherhood in this sort of condition. After 3 sessions I felt a great deal better and far more positive about everything. Toni provided a light at the end of the tunnel!

Thank you Miss Sarkar and Toni Tucker
I came to see Toni Tucker when I had gone over my due date with my second child and what a godsend it was.  Having had a very difficult birth with my first child I was fully aware that preparation was important and was very anxious when I came to my due date only to find my cervix had not even started to dilate and that I was likely to need an induction.  Within the short period that we had Toni helped my cervix open, relaxed me emotionally and I have no doubt in my mind played a very large part in helping me follow through with a natural pain relief free birth.

I really can't recommend her and the practise highly enough. If I were to do it all over again I would most definitely go and see Toni from as early on as possible.

Thankfully sometimes in life you are lucky enough to find truly great people at the point at which you need them and for me that was Toni Tucker and Dr Sarker, who delivered my daughter into the world and recommended Toni to me.

Acupuncture was also was very relaxing to me during my pregnancy.  I had a dream of getting pregnant and obviously as it was my first time, I had no yard stick to measure it against.

I think acupuncture definitely helped me emotionally helped me to conceive as I was getting very stressed thinking that it was not going to happen!

I did not have any minor complaints of pregnancy, but always felt better after a session of acupuncture during my pregnancy.

Acupuncture saved me from another C section
I received acupuncture during the last three weeks of pregnancy.  The acupuncture was relaxing and it was nice to take time out for oneself.  I was lucky enough not to have too many complaints with pregnancy, but the acupuncture did seem to make the baby move around more!

Also I had a very long and complicated first labour 48 hours ending in a C-Section and the second pregnancy, with acupuncture, was smooth with no complications and no pain killers, resulting in a vaginal birth, I strongly feel that acupuncture helped and speeded up my labour. 

Two very different experiences. I would recommend acupuncture in pregnancy to anyone, as I think it helped to prepare my body.

Acupuncture by Toni during my pregnancy was so good for relaxation and helped to initiate my labour
Acupuncture hugely helped me emotionally during my pregnancy.  Labour happened a few days after treatment at full term as it was expected, I am sure and I felt that it definitely helped me to progress into labour and feel positive, relaxed and more confident about the experience.  My labour was 9 hours and quite straightforward. I feel that acupuncture probably helped to shorten the length of the labour, and I would really love to come back and see you if I am lucky enough to get pregnant in the future.

The Berkshire Health Clinic 2011 Workshop
Thank you so much for organising last weekend's workshop. I learnt such a lot, and it was wonderful to meet some other people who understand what it is like to live with IC.
Sandra

I found the workshop on Saturday very useful and very enjoyable as well. All the speakers very excellent, providing much information in a very user-friendly way. I learned a great deal about IC and it was good to have the opportunity to meet others with the same problem. The venue was excellent and the range of refreshments delicious and well suited to our various dietary needs!
Carole

I thought the venue was excellent and I found the day very interesting and informative.

Induction of Labour
Thank you Toni
I came to Toni very late on in my pregnancy (once I had gone overdue) and it was without a doubt one of the best things I ever did. What she achieved was quite incredible and certainly without her (and an amazing obstetrician who originally past on Toni\'s details) I would never have had such a successful natural birth. I think all pregnant women should be aware of what Toni can offer - it would change so many aspects of the extraordinary journey that starts with birth. I cant recommend Toni enough and thank her for dedicating her time to helping us mothers.. you are doing a wonderful thing! x

IVF / DENTAL PAIN
I first came to see Toni for fertiltiy as Iwas having IVF. During one of my visits with Toni I had an abscess in my lower wisdom tooth which was very painful, as i was in IVF treatment I could not take the antibiotics that were prescribed however Ii mentioned this to Toni and she did some acupunture in that area and within in an hour the pain had reduced and the next day I was virtually pain free.

I am continuing with my IVF treatment with Toni and is helping me hugely, no side effects from the IVF medications and very relaxing and calming treatment, great.

Results from Neck/Shoulder nerve problem
I'd been really suffering for 6-8 weeks with a trapped nerve in my neck which affected both front and back shoulder area and tingles down my left arm.

I tried sports massage, chiropracter visits and the paid a visit to Toni - After one session a marked improvement; after two sessions another remarkable improvement; after three sessions I can hardly believe the results have been amazing. I was very despondent before the visit as I could not sit down and relax in a comfortable position. The relief that I now have is incredible that I am 95% better.

I think Toni has worked miracles in curing this very painful problem and I\'m delighted with the results. Acupuncture is extremely relaxing and gives you a sense of wellbeing from lots of angles and Toni is the best in the UK that I know of.

General Health
One night I did something I hadn\'t done before - made my way downstairs in the early hours of the morning for a drink. And suddenly I found myself falling and hitting the wall as I missed the last step. I got up, thought nothing of it, had a drink and went to bed again.

For a few days I felt sore but carried on. Being a bowler, I suddenly realised that it wasn't comfortable to continue with my sport as I could not swing my right arm backwards.

As luck would have it, I read an article on Acupuncture in the local paper - the Maidenhead Advertiser - and decided to give it a try. So I phoned Toni's Clinic [then located in Cookham] and made an appointment.

My husband accompanied me and he was having a joke at my expense as I lay there, face down, with quite a number of needles stuck in my lower back - wondering whether I looked like a hedgehog!!

Well, it was all worthwhile as that one session alone resulted in me being able to bend my arm and touch my back - hoorah.

I was sold on Acupuncture from then on, and have never looked back. If I have any problems, I just go along to Toni and she puts me right.

Thank you Toni for being there for the likes of me.

Acupuncture for bladder problems
I am new to acupuncture and have only had a few sessions. Acupuncture differs form Western medicine in that it looks at the whole person. GP\'s and Consultants rarely look beyond one specific problem. I am already beginning to notice subtle changes in my bladder and certainly a difference in my emotions and approach to life. Treatment with Toni and acupuncture has given me hope.

Acupuncture for fertility and acute grief after the loss of a child
Toni is a wonderful healer - she is nurturing and caring and makes you feel safe in her hands. My experience with her and her acupuncture treatments continue to be an incredibly uplifting and extraordinarily positive experience. She is helping to treat my acute grief,anxiety and fear symptoms in conjunction with my future fertility by rebalancing and realigning my energies. She is, in short a miracle worker.If any of the above rings bells with you.. GO AND SEE HER!
