"Michelle is simply amazing and highly recommended! I started seeing Michelle in 2013 for pre-natal acupuncture as I suffer with severe pregnancy sickness. She boosted my energy levels, reduced stress and helped to manage my pregnancy sickness. I continue to see Michelle for relaxation and overall wellbeing. She is highly qualified and professional, but best of all, a lovely, patient and empathetic person.”

"I had ongoing pain in my left hip for a number of months that physiotherapy and intensive exercises was not resolving so I decided to try acupuncture as it had helped me with sinus issues in the past. Michelle was recommended to me via a facebook group so I decided to make an appointment. At the first consultation she took a detailed history of both my physical and emotional health as she believes in treating the person as a whole rather than just the symptoms. This happened to be a very stressful time for me as I was going through an acrimonious separation. Michelle was empathatic but always highly professional. She was very gentle and the treatment never hurt. In fact I regularly fell asleep and left her treatment room very calm and relaxed. She was able to get deeper into the hip and glute muscles to resolve the issue and alliviate the pain completely. I have no hesitation in recommending Michelle and will definitely be going to her again if and when I have any other issues.”

"Michelle has an incredible talent for acupuncture. combining great knowledge and qualifications in the field with an understanding of you as an individual. She has a way of always making you feel comfortable. She has made a huge improvement to the quality of my life over the last year and I've already recommended her to my family and friends. She is really fantastic."

"I decided to try acupuncture in January 2016 after hearing that it can help improve the symptoms of COPD. After some detailed Internet searching I found Michelle and embarked on a course of acupuncture. After the first session I felt a dramatic improvement; my energy levels lifted and my susceptibility to coughs and colds seemed to diminish. I have had regular acupuncture treatments from Michelle ever since. Michelle is highly professional, skilled, and genuine, and takes a deep interest in her subject and her patients. Her assessment is thorough, considered and adaptive, and I feel reassured and at ease in her care. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone considering acupuncture.”

"I have been having acupuncture with Michelle for over 3 years now for MS. On my first visit, I was at rock bottom after medication I had taken was unsuccessful. Michelle is brilliant, she has the balance just right. She is so professional and passionate in her work but she is approachable and caring at the same time. The immediate improvements I noticed were great and made me truly believe in this alternative therapy. The long term results I've experienced have been consistently amazing too. With regular sessions, my life is much better because I feel physically and emotionally stronger. Michelle really knows her stuff, I have complete trust and confidence in everything she does which is why I highly recommend her and acupuncture to lots of people!"

"I was initially somewhat sceptical about acupuncture but Michelle has transformed my opinion. Her treatments were the crucial factor in helping me recover from chronic fatigue syndrome - the difference after each session was amazing. Now I would turn first to Michelle for advice and treatment on a variety of conditions."

"I have been seeing Michelle for my fibromyalgia for a couple of months. I started seeing her as she was recommended to me. I made my appointment without much hope of success as I'd already resigned myself to being in constant pain having tried many different treatments. I am shocked at the difference that Michelle has made to me. Now I only get limited pain at times and feel better than I had ever thought possible. It is a huge relief to know that when I wake up in the morning I will be able to stand up without my legs collapsing underneath me in pain. Due to Michelle's background in medical research she is so knowledgable. She is more than happy to explain everything in as much detail as you want. I always come away fascinated with the information I have received. Michelle has made a huge difference to my ability to enjoy my life without worry that I won't be able to physically cope with plans. I cannot thank Michelle enough or recommend her highly enough."

"I initially visited Michelle as I was undergoing IVF treatment and acupuncture is a great complementary therapy to this. I was struggling emotionally and I found that acupuncture wasn't just beneficial for my physical well being, but also for my emotional well being. The treatments really helped to keep me centred and calm throughout. Michelle is a gentle and caring practitioner which is just what I needed, and I can't recommend her services enough."
Sarah, August 2016
"I have known Michelle a little over a year now when I needed help with some suspected arthritis in my hands which she has successfully treated. I had also recently suffered a bereavement and was feeling pretty low when Michelle amazingly managed to incorporate my negative feelings at the time into a more holistic treatment; so I benefitted both on a physical and a mental level. Michelle is a meticulously competent professional with a warm, caring and genuine approach and I would thoroughly recommend getting in touch for a quick chat if you're thinking of having acupuncture in the near future."
"I have been having acupuncture treatments for my skin with Michelle for over a year and a half now. When I first started having the treatments, my skin was horrendous and I used to feel really self-conscious. Since then, my hormones have calmed down, my skin heals a lot quicker and my acne scars are gradually disappearing. Through Michelle telling me which foods can aggrevate acne - it lead me to get an allergy test and I found out I was allergic to dairy which had a big part to play with why my skin got so bad. I still get occasional outbreaks but they have definitely reduced and are nowhere near like they used to be. It's also very relaxing!"
"Michelle is extremely professional and puts you completely at ease right from the start. I always feel listened to and each treatment is taylored to exactly what I need. She is also very empathetic and takes a holistic look at how things are alongside my immediate concerns."
"On a recent Christmas Eve, my teenage daughter complained of severe earache. With all the shops and the surgery closed for several days I didn't know what to do apart from give her pain killers through the holiday period, so I decided to call Michelle Estruch to ask her for some advice. She kindly offered to treat my daughter at her consulting rooms that evening. Using acupuncture needles she miraculously cured the pain and we were able to continue with our festivities without the need for pain killers or emergency doctors. Michelle is quite remarkable!"
