“After 3 years of trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully, we were prepared to try anything.”

After 3 years of trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully, we were prepared to try anything. I came to see Dr Vitalis over a year ago for fertility acupuncture. I made weekly visits to Vitalis and am now 8 months pregnant.

I also had help with restless legs. I had my veins lasered to try to combat this. The laser treatment for my legs helped, but only briefly. After four months the symptoms slowly returned. And especially since I became pregnant the symptoms have been keeping me up until the early hours of each morning (and apparently, around 20% of pregnant woman suffer from this). I would spend at least 4 nights a week on the couch trying to get to sleep with my legs twitching and keeping me up.

In desperation, I’ve tried everything from tonic water, magnesium, walking, massage and nothing worked. Dr Vitalis suggested I try acupuncture for this. I am now getting restful nights sleep now. I have been sleeping solidly through the night. I feel like a new person! Thank you to Dr Vitalis and Dr Roberta for all your help.

“I visited every practitioner I could think of to fix the problem or even just ease the pain” Michelle

My lower back pain started after I crouched down to get something out of the car while holding my baby on my hip. I really noticed the injury when I returned to work after maternity leave and was sitting at my desk and on the bus for long periods of time. The longer I sat, the more it hurt.

Over the subsequent months, I visited every practitioner I could think of to fix the problem or even just ease the pain. This included three different osteopaths, a physiotherapist, a chiropractor and a different acupuncturist. I even had an x-ray to check there was no serious underlying issue. After seven months I had only experienced temporary relief (as in one day) but nothing permanent. Read more

“Vitalis has saved me from 6 months of anti-anxiety medication” Karlene Couling

I decided to have acupuncture as a last resort before taking anti anxiety medication as I prefer the natural way if possible. I was a little skeptic that it wouldn’t work but thought I had nothing to lose! I suffered from mild anxiety and after 6 treatments it had practically disappeared. I would recommend Vitalis as he has saved me from 6 months of anti anxiety medication.

Thank-you Vitalis! Karlene Couling
