Nicola (Back pain)
I very much look forward to my acupuncture appointment. Steve has a very diligent, reassuring and empathetic approach. I was initially cautious about how much acupuncture could help me, yet I have found the pain relief and the increase in my energy levels and wellbeing transformational.
I would totally recommend Steve to anyone. I was recommended Steve from another of his clients as I had suffered from extreme anxiety for sometime and had tried all sorts of treatments with not too much success. So had pretty much given up hope but within weeks of working with Steve I noticed some profound improvements and continue to do so. It was amazing!
As well as the acupuncture I also find Steve’s knowledge of Chinese medicine, his friendly and warm nature together with his dedication really helpful, so much so I now regularly go to Steve rather than pop a pill! You will be amazed at how cupping can ease a cold or chest infection.
Again I cannot recommend Steve enough!
Anna (Induction of Labour)
I came across acupuncture and Steve at the end of my second pregnancy. I was looking for help to induce labour as it was not going well by itself, my waters started going but my body showed no other signs of labour. Similar thing had happened during my first pregnancy and the result of that had been emergency C-section and traumatic birth for me and my first child. So on the second occasion I decided to try other options before calling the hospital. I had a session with Steve at 19:30 and by 22:00 the same day I was in full labour. My child was born in less than 5 hours later. I absolutely recommend Steve’s services for induction of labour, worked perfectly for me and eventually I had a birth experience I always wanted, thank you.
Nicola (IVF Support)
Just to let you know I took a pregnancy test over the weekend and the results were positive. I am absolutely over the moon and truly believe the Acupuncture played a part in the result…so thank you very much!
I would fully recommend (and do) Steve Coster acupuncture to anyone. I approached acupuncture with a level of skepticism as so many other treatments had failed to help me previously. However, it was the kick-start my body needed. I am truly grateful to Steve for his dedication, patience and persistence in helping me – he never gave up even when I had lost hope.
Lara (Neck and Shoulder pain)
You will be pleased to hear that my neck and shoulder are so much better, I cannot believe it. Yesterday and today I have had no pain at all; I feel 20 years younger!!
I had developed a skin condition (dermatitis) on my face - it had come out of nowhere but quickly turned red and patchy and flared up to the point I couldn't wear makeup and felt hugely self conscious. A western Doctor wanted to treat it with a prolonged course of antibiotics but instinctively I knew this wasn't the right approach for me. I looked for help in alternative medicine and luckily a friend recommended Steve - it was the best thing I could have done! After seeing Steve each week for about 12 sessions, it's now completely healed and I feel fantastic. Not only is my skin better but I'm less frazzled, much calmer and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing treatment (a treat in itself). Whatever ails you, I'd strongly recommend seeking acupuncture - I've no idea how it works, it just does!
Debbie (painful feet)
I suffer with painful feet which makes walking difficult. My acupuncture and massage sessions with Steve bring me great relief and I am so happy that I can walk without pain again. I can't recommend this highly enough!
Fern (hiatus hernia)
After over 10 years of digestive problems due to a hiatus hernia, I was amazed to learn (during a routine endoscopy) that it had completely disappeared! The consultant confirmed that the acupuncture sessions I had been receiving from Steve helped my stomach and oesophagus to relax enough to function normally again. The pain and nausea up to then had been low level and constant causing a great deal of discomfort. Steve’s sessions enabled me to go off my medication and feel much better. I can’t recommend him enough.
Steve was recommended to me when I hurt my back last year and was able to get me back to normal after only a few treatments. As he looks to treat the whole person rather than the individual problem, through our consultations i told him about the debilitating migraines attacks I have suffered with for many years and he suggested acupuncture. After an initial course of weekly treatments i now have monthly sessions and my attacks have reduced both in frequency and intensity. Steve is thorough and very professional and I’d highly recommend him.
Jayne (chronic headaches)
After over 20 years of suffering with sinus headaches, and trying different remedies and therapies with no luck, I finally feel I have found a treatment that works for me. I contacted Steve explaining my symptoms which included extreme pressure in my face and head, with cronic neck and back pain. The pain used to make me feel very tired and irritable, and it was difficult to concentrate on work. Tui Na sessions have made me feel more energetic, balanced and my headaches are practically non existent. I look forward to my next treatment. Thank you!
Steve has been treating me for the past few months and we are gradually making progress (whereas Western medicine has had no effect at all). I am very pleased with the results. The treatmeants are relaxing although I feel energised after, and I love the cupping!
Louise (neck and shoulder pain)
I used to suffer badly with neck and shoulder pain and had regular osteopathic treatments which gave temporary relief. I heard about Steve and Tui Na and booked a session. That was a year ago and I have learned so much about myself and realised the cause of my pain was primarily from stress and tension. Steve uses various methods each visit to release the muscle tension and calm my mind. It’s been a godsend and I now feel in control of my body at last! Thank you so very much.
