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!

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 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.

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.

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! Thanks,
Sarah - Dermatitis client
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!
Jayne - Chronic headaches client
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.

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.

I have visited Steve for many years now - it started as helping my recovery from a broken ankle and the associated issues that caused, along with other sports injuries and also for more general well-being. Steve is super educated on his topics and really knows how it all works. He asks the right questions, offers great advice and his treatments always deliver results.

I can't thank Steve nor recommend him enough.

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.

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!
Debbie - Painful feet client
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!
Chris - Anosmia client
I initially consulted Steve regarding treatment for my knee arthritis as acupuncture is one of the few complimentary therapies recommended by Arthritis Research UK.  Almost immediately I noticed that my menopause symptoms (brain fog, hot flushes etc) were reducing.  After 8 treatments over a period of 4 month, my sleep has improved and my menopause symptoms have gone. My knee is slowly improving and I have been able to make a cautious return to running.
Melanie - Knee Pain / Menopausal Symptoms
I was diagnosed with PCOS back in 2017 and since doctors said there was nothing I could do about it I turned to acupuncture to see if I could get my body back into balance naturally. I tried two acupuncturists before I moved to Southend and then found Steve. In my first session Steve confidently said he'd get me a period back within three months. As I hadn't had a period for nine months I thought that sounded ambitious... Low and behold, in just three weeks I had a natural period! I couldn't recommend Steve highly enough. Sessions with him are always relaxing and informative, he knows how to make you feel at ease and give you hope that the body does know how to heal. Thank you!
Emily - Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
Steve Coster is a highly skilled proffesional with great knowledge and insight into Eastern Asian Culture and medicine. He is friendly and each clinical appointment with him has been a relaxing and insightful experience. He made me feel at ease and so comfortable, something I usually find very difficult in any situation. If your suffering in anyway, I would highly recommend Steve.
Jon - Back Pain
I visited Steve because I had suffered total hearing loss in my left ear and a friend told me about an article he had read where someone with a condition identical to mine had been succesfuly treated by an accupuncturist.

After a few visits to Steve I regained a degree of hearing back.
I would recommend Steve without reservation.

Arthur - Hearing Loss

Steve has a great way about him., he listens, he helped me relax and he’s a natural, very knowledgeable and very passionate about what he does. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Steve.


Steve’s acupuncture has helped where others have failed. Highly recommended.


I have been suffering with a severe adrenal burnout and a problem with kidneys and water retention for 3 years. Acupuncture with Steve managed to shift all of these issues within 9 sessions  and I am fully recovered now. I can recommend Steve`s work to anyone who is struggling with a chronic physical problem, which is hard to shift.


My daughter suggested Acupuncture to me for addressing my ongoing lower back problems. I was skeptical but she booked me in anyway, and so glad she did. Steve got to the root of my issues which stem from emotional and stress issues, manifesting in my chronic back pain. He has the patience, listening skills , and the knowledge not just of acupuncture but of Wellbeing in general. Would definitely recommend Steve and will keep him in my contacts list for future appointments. Cheers Steve your'e a keeper!

Ronald - Back Pain

I was referred to Steve through Macmillan and just finished my 6 week coarse of treatment. I found  the whole experience brilliant. Steve addressed some of  the issues I was experiencing as a result of my cancer treatment, the main one being lack of movement due to lymph node removal, after a couple of treatments I found that I gained  much more range of movement in this area which has made life much more easier. Fantastic !!
