I have been suffering with severe headaches sine last summer and having had a head scan nothing seemed amiss,unfortunately during this time i was diagnosed with throat cancer.I have had treatment for the cancer and am awaiting scans to see how it has gone.Throughout my treatment the headaches continued right up until i decided to try acupuncture as a last resort.I visited Dr Wu in her surgery and she diagnosed the problem may be a trapped nerve in my neck and immediately started treatment.I am amazed at the results!After the first session i could feel an improvement,i have had had 2 further sessions and again i felt more improvement.The overall experience has been most rewarding and i would highly recommend Dr Wu for her expertise,her surgery is spotless and the treatment is done in a pleasant and professional way.

Dr Wu has been in one word exceptional for us, she has been treating by younger brother who suffered a life threatening brain injury (subarachnoid brain haemorrhage last year), after spending many months in hospital then rehab finally he was discharged hence I wanted to find my brother the best help to continue with his recovery, Dr Wu listened carefully to our concerns regarding his health and decided accordingly to carry out required treatment to support and enhance his recovery, my brother really enjoys his therapy sessions and has indicated that he has become better with sensory and feelings due to this, I would definitely recommend Dr Wu to anyone who has had similar problems as it can really make a difference hopefully to them as well

I have attended over 20 treatments with Dr. Wu and always leave feeling better than when I arrived. Dr. Wu always listens to what I have to say and even though she has way more knowledge than me she is always keen to hear my thoughts. She is incredibly qualified with a degree in Clinical Medicine, a PhD in biology and many biomedical research papers in her name. Chinese medicine puts an emphasis on the relationships of the various organs and how they interact. And thus how they can be tonified to support each other. Unlike strong western medicine there's no side effects to a treatment like acupuncture. The flip side is you need to give Chinese medicine time to work. Chinese medicine does not blow the doors of! It requires patience and faith (not blind faith, there's plenty of clinical research supporting acupuncture ). I’ve given Dr Wu’s details to at least a half dozen of my friends and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

During months I had migraines, back pain, idigestions very easly and I almost couldn’t eat anything, as well as redness and small wounds in the corners of the mouth. The doctors couldn’t find the cause of my sympthoms and insisted that I was fine. However, Dr Wu was able to spot the problem easly and treat it succesfully. Within the first session the results are already noticeble. I also must add, her care for the clients is a wonder. She looks into detail how to solve your health problem and to make you feel comfortable during the session.

I am 77 years old with auto immune conditions. The main problem is Raynaud's phenomenon which manifests as bad circulation ( white fingers, cold feet, nose ulcers) and is most troublesome in winter time. During the last lockdown i experienced a significant flare up when my lower legs became inflamed, swollen and stiff in both joints and tissues (scleroderma). I dread winter and prefer a natural approach to health conditions as opposed to allopathic drugs. Since having over 10 sessions of acupuncture with Dr Wu, the circulation is much better ( no white finger), the skin on my legs has softened returning to a more normal shape and colour. I am calmer, sleep better and have much more energy. Dr Wu is a very sensitive and skilled practitioner. I am fortunate to have found her and would highly recommend her

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Wu. I almost don’t want to say how amazing she is so that she can still fit me in with her schedule. She fixed my sleeping problem in one go, she was so through when she was doing an analysis of my body and told me things about my medical history that I had yet to share. I have seen her three times now and I really genuinely feel a difference in my body’s response to stress, I feel so much calmer and grounded. I used to have debilitating headaches, ones where I couldn’t get out of bed and those are gone as well. I really cannot say enough good things. She is so generous with her time and her knowledge and a true gem. I firmly believe everyone could benefit from seeing Dr. Wu.

Sonja Sutcliffe, 2022-3-3

When I first visited Dr Wu I was suffering severe lower back pain in so much as I could hardly move and go about my daily tasks. Magically, after a couple of sessions of cupping and acupuncture my condition rapidly improved, hence the use of the word magic! We progressed to look into my menopausal symptoms and began treating these. I was using HRT gel and pills and decided to stop these as the response from Dr Wu’s treatment was far more impactful. I am now having less hot flushes, have a better mood and have decided to continue dealing with the menopause with Dr Wu and no HRT. Dr Wu has also extended her talents into our family members and has treated my teenage daughter for stress and anxiety and my son for muscular issues. My husband is a work in progress as he has had long term back issues and we are hoping the magic is passed onto him!! I think he just needs more belief! I totally recommend that you give Dr Wu a try if you are suffering physically and or mentally. Trust the treatment and stick with it, it really has been life changing for my family and I.

Nadine Elizabeth, 2022-2-11

Was a good acupunture until suddenly she texted me saying that there was a funny smell in the room and she had to open the windows to get rid of it???? But had the ear infection for four months prior but nothing was ever said. Visited the western doctors they never commented that it smelt and even if it did they wouldn't have said it. After this I never went back. It's humiliation, would never dream of saying this to a patient especially when your a doctor. Not professional at all. You keep stuff like that too yourself.

Dr Wu's Acupuncture: Hi, Nadine. I am very sorry that my words deeply hurt you. I think it is necessary to explain again why I said that. You had serious tinnitus, ear bleeding and ear infection last year when you visited me. You told me that your doctor said you might also have kidney problems. As your ear infection was very severe, I told you that acupuncture was not enough to get rid of it. You should take some antibiotics. However, your doctor refused to prescribe antibiotics because the tests were negative and he didn’t believe you had bacteria infection, although the ear pus was greenish and smelled badly. I noticed the clinic room smelled strongly after your last visit. Based on my medical experience, this was caused either by ear infection or kidney issues. I never planned to tell you this as I worried it might make you unhappy. One week later, your doctor still refused to give you any medicine. You were desperate and messaged me to ask what you should do. I told you that I never worked in NHS and didn’t know the rules. But you just kept on texting me to ask the same question again and again. At the end, I thought the bad smell in the room meant your condition was very serious. If your doctor knew this, he might do more tests and give you some treatment. This is why I told you. Chinese medicine is very different from Western medicine. Chinese doctors diagnose disease by observe the body changes. Colour, smell and sound changes are all what we need to pay attention to. This was why I found out your ear infection at the very early beginning and alerted you to see your doctor immediately. In your 4 months’ of visit to me, I spent more than two hours each time to treat you, and also spent hours to answer your emails and texts whenever you felt bad or had any questions. I totally understand how much you suffered and always wanted to help you. I feel so sorry that one message about your health condition hurt you so much

I have recently completed a course of acupuncture & cupping with Dr Wu. This has been very effective in reducing lower back & hip pain which was causing me a lot of problems. I had already been treated by physiotherapy with limited success. I feel the treatment from Dr Wu has improved my condition much more than traditional physiotherapy. I would recommend this kind of treatment to friends & family. If i have trouble in the future , i will try acupuncture first. As Dr Wu is a qualified Doctor , i was less worried about the use of needles . Her hygiene measures are extremely good.

Maria M, 2021-11-18

I am more than happy that I had an opportunity to visit Dr. Wu and try her methods as acupuncture. I had very big muscles pain and numbness of both hands. Those symptoms were very active inthe evening or night time, I couldn’t sleep and have a rest because of pain, I couldn’t lift my baby from her cot at night because I couldn’t feel my hands (mostly forehand). GP advised me to try ibuprofen and paracetamol but of course it was ineffective, but Dr. Wu helped me a lot, after two procedures I started to feel better, I no forehand numbness, muscles pain no joints pain. I started to feel great, started to sleep and enjoy time with my baby. I’m still can’t understand how such a tiny needles can do such a thing, to make all symptoms gone, but what Dr. Wu did it was like unexpected and very gratifying for me! 🤗🤗🤗❤️ Thank you so much! From now I know where to call if I feel unwell and get a really effective help! Thank you thank you thank you! 🙏🙏🙏🙏

Erlandas Plekavcius, 2021-10-28

Would highly recommend this Dr. Definitely knows what she’s doing and helped me a lot to sort out my back pain.

Chris Paton, 2021-10-9

Professional service really helped my back and hamstring with the cupping and acupuncture, well worth a visit

Andrew Sowerby, 2021-10-5

Great experience! Dr Wu was considerate, educational, caring and professional. Would recommend.

Farzane Azizi, 2021-9-21

After a week of not being able to walk because of my knee pain and cramped muscles that I couldn't ease the pain in any way , I decided to try acupuncture. Unbelievably, the result was amazing even after the first session! I did both cupping and acupuncture through the last 2months and am so glad that I found Dr.Wu. She was so patient, sympathetic, and caring with me during this time. What you probably need your doctor to be. However, the pain was severe recently because of an accident but I have had this problem for 8years and I don't believe that any treatment could help this but traditional methods such as cupping and acupuncture. I would definitely recommend this treatment to anyone who hasn't been able to find a way to manage knee pains and muscles problems.

I have suffered with acid reflux on and off for around twenty years, it has become really bad in the last two or three years. At one time or another I have been prescribed all the relevant medications from my GP/hospital, with varying degrees of success and some of the horrendous side effects. So far I have had 6 treatments with Dr Wu and I was pleasantly surprised to start feeling better from day one. I have reduced my medication and I’m hoping to stop taking it all together. The difference she has made to me is incredible. As others have said Dr Wu is so professional, pleasant and caring you feel totally relaxed in her care. I can’t recommend Dr Wu enough. Thank you Dr Weiju Wu.

Judith T, 2021-8-21

After a long term issue of heartburn and reflux that I have had for 7 years with little respite from drugs or NHS consultations I contacted Dr Wu as a bit of a last resort. I received a consultation and first treatment within 48 hours and found Dr Wu to be thorough, friendly and very professional. The premises are very clean and Covid aware. I am delighted to be having some success with relief of my problems which started happening after around 5 sessions. I am going to continue on with the amount of sessions Dr Wu has suggested with confidence that my issues will continue to decrease and my health improve.

Rafaqat Ali, 2021-8-20

Very caring and professional person is Dr Wu I had facial muscle pain and within two weeks It was extremely better Thank you

Sarah Fae, 2021-7-26

I was recommended to see Dr Wu through a friend who had excellent results through a series of acupuncture treatments. My symptoms related to Fibromyalgia when I started working with Dr Wu I felt severely fatigued with headaches and pain all over my body. I am currently on treatment number 14 and the headaches are gone, my energy/pain has greatly improved, I feel lighter and brighter! Dr Wu is a professional and you feel very taken care of by her expertise and manner. Her treatments are varied as she uses a range of traditions from Chinese medicine. She goes above and beyond what I have ever experienced before with a holistic therapist. Thank-you so much Dr Wu- you have given me my life back after years of fibromyalgia.

Charden Pouo, 2021-7-15

Her customer service and the level of service she provides are unmatched. Dr Weiju is an absolute professional. She truly cares about her patients' well-being and will ensure that you receive the best care possible. I cannot sing her praises highly enough.

Les Johnson, 2021-7-13

I suffered from Trigeminal Neuralgia (Severe Toothache type pain) in my jaw and check. After 1 hour of cupping and acupuncture the symptoms were alleviated slightly but the next day was when I seen the most improvement. I've had a further two treatments and the pain has almost completely gone. All that is left is a minor tingling in one of my teeth. I will take that any day over the severe pain I had before I went to see Weiju and I'm hoping after the next treatment i will be fully repaired. Aside from how successful treatment was this is real Value for Money with no hidden extras or pressure to buy more or purchase a bulk of unnecessary treatments. Weiju discusses the options then allows you to go away and think about what if any further treatments you want to take. The first consultation and treatment was about 2 and a bit hours at £30 which was half price at the time and then each further treatment of 2 hours was £40. So in all over 7 hours of treatment at just over £100. I dont think that is bad at all. Thank you Weiju 😊

Przemyslaw D, 2021-7-8

Great practice and explanation about my problem. Dr Wu helped me a lot with my long lasting lower back and shoulder blade injuries. Highly recommended!

John Telford, 2021-7-5

After suffering sciatica pain for weeks Dr Wu has taken away the pain in just 2 sessions. She performed an initial examination and diagnosis and had treated me within one day of contacting her. The pain had almost gone after the first session. Her consulting room and hygiene methods were excellent. She explained very clearly the problem and the methods of treatment. The pricing is explained on the website and no extras were added. Dr Wu is very caring and understanding and l can’t thank her enough for the excellent treatment.

Charles Lynch, 2021-6-4

Very good place for acupuncture dr wu is very professional and knows exactly what she is doing. I been suffering from an old injury in my L5 lower back for a long time and dr wu treatment certainly helps. I definitely recommend her service.

L Wang, 2021-6-2

I had insomnia and right shoulder pain for several months. After having acupuncture treatment for one month with Dr. Wu, these symptoms have disappeared and now I can have a sound sleep every night and feel more energetic than before. During each session, Dr. Wu first asks my progress and does a pulse and tongue check. Then she does cupping on my back and acupuncture treatment. The infrared heating are put on my belly/or back and legs. The whole treatment is so relaxing and I often fall asleep and feel so good after that. I have benefited so much through the treatment and will definitely recommend her to all my friends.

EllishiaB, 2021-5-10

The quality and service was amazing! Was very friendly and professional, took the time to explain in depth everything. It has helped me hugely with my condition with my face. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Andrea Satterthwaite, 2021-5-9

I have been attending acupuncture and cupping with Weiju for a couple of months now in relation to my allergies and my skin condition. Amazing difference. Weiju is so patient and calming and explains all procedures clearly. Felt relaxed from day one with the acupuncture and amazed with it’s outcomes.

Nazreen Zaman, 2021-4-6

Dr Wu is so thorough and really cared for me holistically, I saw a difference in my energy levels within a few treatments. I highly recommend her services and specifically women’s health, my menstrual cycle was really heavy before treatment and now it’s much better. You can really tell She is passionate about caring and treated patients.

Sadio Salah, 2021-3-13

Last 3 days I had been struggling with excruciating back, neck and shoulder pain and had my first ever acupuncture appointment with Dr Wu. I had acupuncture, cupping and a term called 'bleeding' and am happy to add, am feeling way way better than when I first arrived. Her practice is clean and professional and I would highly recommend her service. As a first time customer I also received 50% off my fee which covered my taxi. Definitely reccomend.

Rae White, 2021-2-25

Dr Wu is very patient, knowledable and diligent. I have had a flare up of crohn's disease and decided to look into more holistic theaepies... I'm so glad I did. Dr Wu's treatment has been amazing for my energy levels especially as someone who struggle with chronic fatigue. I've also had chronic constipation and nausea associated with crohns which treatment also helped with. She is very thorough each session. I have been receiving treatment since December and have felt very safe and looked after,i never had accuncpuncture before this and now I'm sure I will go along if I need to. Dr wu will recommend how long your treatment should be for. I would recommend if you have an ailment that has been bothering you I'm sure acupuncture will be of help.

Fred G, 2020-12-20

Dr. Wu is a very thorough practitioner, she took the time to discuss the progression of my symptoms at every session to tailor my treatment. After a couple of months' worth of acupuncture with Dr. wu, I experienced a noticeable improvement in my mood and energy levels. Definitely recommended.

Bridget Shea, 2020-12-14

Dr Weiju Wu has helped with my pain management after an injury. The acupuncture and cupping sessions have also improved my general health and wellbeing. I am very impressed with the support I’ve received from Weiju. She clearly explains the treatment, actively listens and worked with me to manage my pain and improve my sleep. I am very grateful to her and she comes highly recommended.

Natalie Palmer, 2020-12-3

Over the course of 10 treatments with Dr Wu I have seen extreme results. I have suffered with adult acne since I was a teenager, I am now in my early 30s. I have tried everything western doctors have given me including being on antibiotics for six months at a time, steroid creams and pills. I have tried detoxes, juice diets and cutting out food groups. Even after being vegan for two years the acne still persisted. After just seven treatments with Dr Wu my acne had cleared up, My menstrual cycle adjusted and I now have pain-free periods. I no longer have heart palpitations before my period. Dr Wu is professional, very thorough and makes you feel safe. I would recommend anyone going to see her and will be sending all of my friends her way.

Ken, 2020-11-10

Dr.Wu is a pleasant and compassionate person who cares about her patients and appears to go that extra mile to achieve the objectives.Her treatment plan is carefully thought out and thoughtfully administered. Highly recommended.

Kat Truong, 2020-8-6

I received a course of acupuncture treatment particularly for pain in my arm after falling off a climbing wall. The pain persisted for weeks before I met Dr Wu. I found that her treatment also aided my low energy and stress levels. Relieving blocked energy in the body can have surprising and welcome results. Dr Wu has a thorough knowledge of acupuncture and TCM practices. She took the time to understand my health issues, and performs a pulse and tongue check at each session. She is attentive and caring in her approach. As well as acupuncture, Dr Wu included cupping therapy, ear seeds and moxibustion in my treatment plan. I believe the combination of these TCM practises have been hugely beneficial. If you are considering acupuncture as an alternative to Western Medicine, you need to find a good practitioner. I have already recommended Dr Wu's services to my friends and will continue to do so. Thank you Weiju!

Andrew Murray, 2020-7-30

I was always sceptical about acupuncture but thought I’d give it a try after I was introduced to Weiju. I explained my ailments (stress, insomnia and digestive issues) to Weiju and she thought acupuncture could help. I’m now approaching the end of my second block of 10 treatments and showing noticeable improvements in each area. The more research I do, the more I believe Traditional Chinese Medicine can deliver better results than Western Medicine. Weiju is very attentive and knowledgeable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Alice Uwineza, 2020-7-21

I had never considered Chinese medicine before. However, after my first consultation with Dr. Wu, I decided to give it a try. She first checked my nails, teeth and tongue to get an idea about my general health, then we talked about my sleeping issues and suboptimal bowel movement. Based on the latter, she put an acupunture, moxibustion and cupping treatment scheme together. Although I was quite stressed about the treatment, Dr. Wu would explain every step in detail and check in regularly if I was feeling alright. Because of this, from the second session onwards, I was able to relax during the treatment. I very much enjoyed every session with Dr. Wu and after 2 treatments I already noticed that my sleep and bowel movement had significantly improved. After 14 treatments, my insomnia and bowel movement were recovered. Thank you Dr. Wu!​

M-T Pinder, 2020-7-15

"There once was the wise Doctor Wu Who listened, then knew what to do. She placed needles and cups so The chi it could flow, And her patients then thanked her anew." "(An original limerick by the reviewer, M-T Pinder, copyright 2020)."
"My initial session with Dr Wu consisted of a thorough examination, from top to toe, including my tongue, hands and pulses. She noted my ailments, some long-standing including a fungal sinus condition and digestive problems as well as more recently acquired arthritis and water retention. I felt she listened carefully to what I had told her as displayed by the questions she asked me, and I had confidence in accepting her recommendation of acupuncture and cupping treatment for my elderly body. Before lockdown brought the appointments to an abrupt stop, I had a number of appointments. It took a couple of treatments for me to become accustomed to the techniques, initially somewhat alarming, inevitably involving some discomfort. However, I adjusted to the treatment and Dr Wu's continuing diagnostic skills, and I feel the treatments have been beneficial to my system. Some improvement was immediately experienced and over a longer period there was an increased sense of overall well-being. Unfortunately, there have been no treatments possible since March, due to lockdown rules. I have missed the benefits of continuing sessions, and look forward to resuming them as soon as circumstances allow."

Serpil Bulut, 2020-7-13

I received my treatment last year for my complicated condition. Dr. Wu’s (Weiju’s) vast acupuncture and human health knowledge; and passion for helping and caring for people showed itself very clearly right at the consultation stage. Her smooth technique of putting needles in and reassuring approach during the treatment is very conforming. She ensured that she communicated the treatment programme with me well. Not only she is very experienced and good at acupuncture, she is amazing with giving advise on how to look after the body; e.g. keep feet warm. Weiju always contacted me after each treatment to check how I was feeling and provided further guidance. I highly recommend Dr. Wu. You will be in good hands.
