I was recommended to try acupuncture to treat a shoulder impingement. I had previously sought traditional remedy of ortho doctor, steroid injections and surgery was the next step. Even though I have a fear of needles I thought I would give it a go as I didn't want to undergo surgery and be laid up for months on end. Jason made me feel at ease and after a few treatments I am 100% convinced that this has alleviated my condition and made me also feel better in myself generally by carrying much less tension. I also plan to continue seeing Jason on a less frequent basis because I know I will come out feeling very relaxed.
I have continued having acupuncture with Jason every week during my pregnancy, which has been invaluable for maintaining a relaxed and positive outlook. Jason has also periodically treated my neck and shoulder tension as needed, and, most recently, has almost entirely relieved the symptoms of my pregnancy-related carpal tunnel syndrome. Apart from the acupuncture itself, one of the most valuable aspects of my weekly treatments with Jason has been the opportunity to discuss how I am feeling, both physically and mentally. He has been a constant source of expert advice and reassurance and manages to create an atmosphere of quiet sympathy, support and encouragement during his consultations. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services, whether for fertility issues, support during pregnancy
I started acupuncture with Jason after a failed round of IVF. I was then 40 and was being treated for immune problems by my IVF clinic, but I also had a low ovarian reserve and irregular periods and was feeling pretty downbeat about my chances of getting pregnant. For the next 3 months I had an acupuncture treatment every week, during which Jason concentrated on improving my fertility, but at the same time was able to treat my long-standing neck and shoulder stiffness. Encouraged by Jason, I also worked hard on my nutrition and relaxation techniques during this time. By the time my next round of IVF started, my periods had become almost entirely regular and also less painful, with many fewer clots. I felt positive and relaxed, experienced much less discomfort from the IVF medication, and produced almost twice as many eggs as before, leading to a healthy pregnancy.
I saw Jason in March 2015 to seek his help with an autoimmune condition that I had just been diagnosed with a couple of months prior. I was suffering from a number of physical symptoms including body pains, numbness in my limbs and dizziness. I was still coming to terms with the diagnosis at that point, and Jason played a huge part in helping me to get relief from the symptoms I was facing at that time, and also getting a clearer picture of what lay ahead in terms of living with the condition and strategies to cope with it. This helped me to regain a lot of confidence in my health. The acupuncture treatments that Jason gave me have helped to reduce, if not eliminate, most of the issues that I saw him for and I can't thank him enough. A great TCM physician and a friend that I will cherish!
In both diagnosis and treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine Jason Unwin provided effective core solutions to a condition that conventional medicine helplessly recognised the serious symptoms. Jason brought me back to health.
I began seeing Jason when I really felt nobody could help. I was unweight, my periods had stopped and the only thing being offered to me was HRT. As someone in her mid thirties, this was not an attractive option so I looked at alternatives. That's when I stumbled across the exciting work of the London Acupuncture Centre. Within six months, to the astonishment of my NHS team, Jason restored my menstrual cycle to a regular pattern and completely changed my body shape. I have continued to see Jason for a range of complicated health problems with treatment providing relief if not full recovery. His approach is unintimidating and non judgmental. He listens and works with you to provide the best outcome through a mix of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. He is excellent value for money too.
