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.
Pip Davidson
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.

Nayth Loft
Dean is an amazing healer and I highly recommend visiting him for any ailment. He is very knowledgeable and has a holistic approach with his treatments. More importantly I always feel MUCH better leaving than I did coming in. If you haven't tried acupuncture before (you definitely should try it) Dean is a very trustworthy practitioner that you can confidently entrust for your first experience and ongoing treatments. Dean is also an ACC provider which makes life easier if you have had an injury.
Dan Marrow
Very thorough and friendly session. Needles and acupuncture was something I was nervous about but Dean's gentle nature and informative procedure really helped with re-habilitating an injured shoulder. Thanks Dean.
