Acupuncture, postoperative recovery, Manchester

In April of this year I developed a nasty finger infection which progressed to gangrene. This involved a hospital stay, many drugs, a lot of distress and fear for the future. I decided to try acupuncture in May initially to bring down the swelling in my hand, which it did almost immediately. I also noted that during sessions my finger began to feel “alive”. I was also aware of the emotional response I was having to treatment. I generally felt more positive and less frightened. The acupuncture had certainly tapped into and connected mind and body.

Lin Du is an excellent practitioner. I feel very comfortable with her. She has a lot of knowledge and experience in both Chinese and western medicine. She has a strong commitment and passion for her work and a sense of humour!
