After visiting my GP for back pain and almost giving up thinking nothing could be done about it I visited iffley turn practise. I was able to get a same day appointment which was fantastic. I was slightly nervous but was made to feel at complete ease by Tom who was so professional and understanding and knew exactly what was the problem. He talked me through and explained everything. After 2 visits I’ve left the practise extremely happy and he’s managed to work wonders on my back. Thank you Tom!

I attended the mindfulness training, it's been a fantastic course enabling to focus on the present moment. Course is teaching relaxation techniques and is introducing to the meditation which is amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone. Shame it only runs for 4 weeks. Very good value for money. Can't wait for the top up class.
Hi Alina - Thank you for this lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed the course and look forward...

I have been having acupuncture with Sam for a few years now, on and off as I have needed and will continue to do so. I have complex medical conditions that have required a lot of thought outside the box, which hasn't been possible within conventional medical practice, (which I still believe there is always a place for, but also has its limitations like most things!) but the holistic approach and positive outcomes I have received through the acupuncture and being able to communicate so easily with Sam has been invaluable to me. She is a caring, extremely knowledgeable, and a very professional down to earth and skilled practitioner who has helped me on so many levels. It is a joy to be treated by someone who is passionate about what they are doing and truly cares about their patients. I cannot recommend highly enough.

I've been coming to Chris for several months for remedial massage to improve muscle tension and headaches. He's been so helpful -- I sleep better now, my tension headaches have significantly decreased in intensity and in number, acute and general anxiety has softened, and athletic performance in rowing improved. He's always relaxed and pleasant; I never feel nervous about the session. Iffley Turn Practice is bright and clean. The only drawback? Chris is very good, and I won't go to anyone else -- this is a problem when his appointments book quickly! 10/10!

I was reassured from the very first meeting with Ben for osteopathy (which have helped me a lot, by the way)and during our conversations I learned about the Mindfulness course. It was reassuring and enlightening ..... and not at al weird :) Highly recommended.

The best £50 I’ve spent for some time! Major improvement, somewhere between completely better and mostly better, physically and physiologically a huge improvement. I recommend the practice.

Tom was really calming and explained the treatment plan clearly. He informed me my back problem was common, that it could be treated and it was. My pain went on my first treatment. I went from being in spasming pain to having no pain after treatment. I was worried my back pain may return due to lifting a 6 month baby that was getting bigger(!) but he his now 8 months and I haven't had any further problems.

I have nothing but good things to say about Heather and my very positive experience of acupuncture with her. She has helped me so much on so many levels with a variety of issues including insomnia. I always enjoy my sessions with her and come away feeling calmer and reassured. Heather is a fantastic person - always kind and perceptive, and highly skilled and knowledgeable. I will continue to recommend her, and am now an advocate for the profound benefits of acupuncture.
I am so grateful that I found Heather during a period of my life when I was feeling extremely weak, anxious, stressed, with my hormones all over the place. I'd just finished breastfeeding and my GP couldn't find any reason for me to be feeling the way I was. When I first sat down with Heather, I felt completely in safe hands. She listened and immediately knew what to do, telling me that in traditional Chinese medicine there is a simple explanation for the hormonal flux when breastfeeding ends. I felt an immediate difference after the first acupuncture session, and the hormonal issue was sorted within a month of weekly acupuncture visits.
As well as further acupuncture for a variety of issues (stress, anxiety, sleep issues), she was also able to advise me of some adaptations to my diet which would support and nourish my blood, meaning that I no longer feel dizzy and weak each month. I will continue to follow this advice and believe it has been invaluable to my health and well-being.
Heather is very astute, caring and really listens to whatever is going on. I can't recommend her highly enough.
I visited Heather for regular acupuncture to help with a range of health problems stemming from cancer treatment. When I first began seeing Heather I was suffering from anxiety and fatigue, as well as digestive problems and hormonal disturbances. I immediately felt comfortable with Heather and she really listened to all of my concerns. I saw an improvement in all of my symptoms very quickly and, when I needed further cancer treatment, regular acupuncture helped me to cope with the stress and also reduced the side-effects. Heather is a caring and empathetic practitioner, and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to her practice which I found very helpful. I would highly recommend acupuncture to anyone who feels that their general health (physical or mental) requires some additional support to get back on track.
Before I starting seeing Heather for regular acupuncture, I suffered from migraines 2-3 times a month. Thanks to this treatment, I haven't had a migraine for over 6 months now, which is such a relief. I have a monthly treatment now, more for my general wellbeing.
I had a course of acupuncture with Heather. She always listened carefully and along with being highly skilled had a kind, sympathetic and wholesome approach to healing. IF you want to do acupuncture but are scared of needles she is the right person to go to.
Tom got straight to the root of the problem - I had been suffering from neck pain for two months and it was getting worse. I could not look over either shoulder and I was experiencing headaches and pain in my right arm. I could feel the tension in my neck and knew that a trip to the GP would be a waste of time - I would be given painkillers, not a cure. After two sessions with Tom I am completely back to normal and feel as though I am walking on air.
My son had been misdiagnosed with short achilles tendon for years. After discovering this we tried to get help in the country we live but success was marginal. As my daughter was very happy with the treatment Tom Bedford had given her, we made an appointment with Summeara. I was impressed with the progress she achieved in just three sessions. My son stopped twisting his ankles and knees when walking, started walking with his knees apart and can even run well. His mood improved and he is smiling more frequently now. Summeara heard my concerns and reassured me that what I'm doing is correct. She helped me understand that if my son's body suffers his soul will suffer too, and his confidence is as important for his health as all the sports he is trying at. I'm grateful and will do my best to go back to her whenevervwe are in the UK.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure treating your son, I am delighted that he...

I have used Tom since 2007 and the first thing I do when I arrive every summer from the U.S. is to make an appointment to sort out my pain from several surgeries. I ALWAYS feel much better! I've never found anyone as good as Tom--from the U.S. to the U.K. Thank you!

I had suffered from pain in my lower back for a prolonged period of time and it came to a head when I was reduced to tears in a yoga class. A friend recommended that I see Tom for some treatment; after one session the pain in my back had almost completely vanished and after two I felt like a new woman. Since having treatments with Tom I've been back doing things that I had avoided due to the constant low level pain that I was suffering. An excellent practitioner who, unlike some others I have come across in the past, doesn't encourage you to undertake any more treatment than you actually need. I have no qualms about recommending him, or the practice, to everyone that I know.

Review for Ben Davies - Trigger Point massage therapist
After 10 years of severe hip and shoulder pain, where I struggled to walk during a flair up, I was feeling at a loss. During this time I had engaged in multiple different treatments, trying to resolve my physical health issues and get my life back. However, during that 10 year period, no practitioner from either the NHS or private health clinic was able to offer me a clear diagnosis or treatment plan which worked.
Feeling at a loss, I did a little more research of my symptoms on Google , changed tack and decided to try trigger point massage. Step in Ben Davies, who has changed my life .
Saying he's changed my life is a strong statement, but its true. He was the first practitioner to really understand my pain and develop a treatment programme that has brought about real results. I now walk without severe pain, and every visit continues to improve my mobility, whilst reduce my pain level.
Ben is very skilled at his work and has a very caring
