Before I came to Dean I was barely able to turn my head, my neck ached constantly and I had very restricted movement. I had been diagnosed with a degenerative cervical spine and was extremely despondent. Following just the first session I was able to move far more freely and after each session I am relaxed and pain free. Dean is extremely knowledgeable, professional and has wonderful healing skills. I had never attempted acupuncture before but am now a convert and would thoroughly recommend Dean to anyone who requires treatment for any issues.

I strongly recommend anyone considering acupuncture to visit Dean. Following a car accident, I've struggled with persistent back issues, finding no relief until I sought treatment from Dean. His clinic exudes tranquility and relaxation, and Dean ensures you feel at ease throughout the entire process. I've referred Dean to numerous friends and family members, all of whom have been thoroughly impressed with his expertise and care.

I've been to see Dean a few times now and I look forward to every treatment. I was nervous at first, but Dean helped me to feel calm and relaxed as he talked me through the process. It's amazing how much better you will feel after just a couple of sessions. If you are considering acupuncture, I highly recommend that you contact Dean.

I wholeheartedly endorse Dean as a healer for any condition because he is such an amazing person. He approaches his therapies holistically and is very knowledgeable. More significantly, after every session I feel totally different and better in every way, than I did when I arrived. Dean is a very reputable practitioner that you can confidently entrust for both your initial experience and follow-up treatments if you haven't tried acupuncture before (you should absolutely give it a try - Dean really understands and using his calming techniques, alleviates your fear of needles). If you have an injury, your life will be made easier by Dean's status as an ACC provider.

I decided to try acupuncture for the first time having suffered a back injury. I certainly didn't know what to expect, but it has been the best decision to go to Dean for treatment. As well as treating the injury with a great deal of success, Dean has also been helping me out with other health issues and I just feel better all round. He is both professional and caring, and extremely knowledgeable.

I went to Dean with neck issues that I have been battling for years. Always buying new pillows and doing other things to remove the pain and increase mobility. I found Dean via google and after my first session of Acupuncture and Myofascial Release the difference in my pain and mobility is unbelievable. I have since been back again for 'maintenance' and it just keeps getting better. Dean is lovely to work with, easy to talk to and you feel safe and in professional hands. He is not pushy or trying to upsell. The clinic is clean and warm. Highly recommend and will continue to visit.
