Bryony Griffiths Acupuncturist

Harrogate Aesthetics, 12 Princes Square, Harrogate HG1 1LX, UK – 07581 095268

I was diagnosed with bell's palsy in March 2016. Following very little information available from either my doctor or the NHS, I contacted Bryony to discuss acupuncture and the possibilities of treatment to assist in my recovery. Two months on, and weekly sessions with Bryony we have seen tremendous improvements with my diagnosis. I would highly recommend Bryony, she is professional, welcoming, sensitive to her patients needs and knowledgeable in her chosen subject - exactly what was missing. Acupuncture has made a significant difference to not only my recovery but also my overall health - a believer and a big fan! Andrew

I visited Bryony, having never had acupuncture before, and can confidently say it was both an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Bryony was very helpful in aiding my recovery from Bell's palsy; she dealt with my nerves on my first appointment, explained the process clearly and has gone above and beyond at finding ways to help my recovery. I highly recommend Bryony and will continue having acupuncture after my recovery. A fantastic and relaxing experience!

Abintra Healing From Within - Harrogate Acupuncture Clinic

46 Cheltenham Mount, Harrogate HG1 1DL, UK – 07808 580738

I've never had acupuncture before but in the course of waiting on a replacement knee the pain in my knee got so bad that when a client from Vancouver told me to try it I thought I didn't have anything to lose. I would say on reflection it was one of the best decisions I've made in my life - and I've made a few. I have grade 4 arthritis either side of my left knee, which means its bone on bone. I've also grade 3 and grade 4 below my knee. I noticed a difference after the first acupuncture session, its not always the case I know - but I noticed it. After 8 sessions I was pretty much pain free. I'm having a replacement knee operation in April and I haven't had a pain killer since January. I still can't walk very far but around the house and at night its bliss. These eastern guys know what they are doing. Amanda is a great practitioner, you are safe in her hands. I wish I'd found her years ago.

Having suffered for many years with an on-off back condition that could flare up and leave me unable to sit or stand I was somewhat skeptical about the benefits of acupuncture. I was wrong. A course of 6 sessions with Amanda put me right and I have not since (in 5 years) had another major flare-up. The sessions themselves were relaxing and quite pleasant - I even fell asleep on more than one occasion. I had spent hundreds of pounds with osteopaths and popped pain-killers like smarties. Amanda's holistic approach worked for me, I don't know the hows or whys but I'm not complaining.
