I am so glad that my son recommended that I see you for acupuncture to help with my lower back pain. I must admit that I was quite skeptical at first as I have had regular treatment for this but still the pain would come back. After seeing you my back feels so much better and I feel great and energized. I look forward to our next acupuncture session.
I first visited Justin after suffering a back strain. Following initial Osteopath treatments,
I found acupuncture from Justin greatly relieved the pain, treating my lower back muscles etc over several weeks and now my back is no problem – which is great.
Justins’s treatments for my digestive & bowel issues have been life changing.
Health and wellbeing
I never feel like going to Acupuncture but I feel so damn good after keeps me going back.
Managing the ups and downs of everyday physical and emotional stress requires work. One thing I do religiously every week is my appointment with Justin. Acupuncture not only helps me deal with ongoing management of painful joints, but also restores my mental and physical energy to get through a demanding week feeling grounded and calm.
At 35 weeks, we discovered that our baby was breech. I approached Justin for his treatment and guidance; he also advised us what we could do at home ourselves to encourage the baby to turn. Our scan showed the baby had turned and was no longer breech and our midwife confirmed that our baby was now in an ideal position.
At 41 weeks pregnant with the thought of hospital induction looming I went to MaxWell Clinic to see Justin Dwen for some induction acupuncture. Over the course of a week I had a number of treatments gaining in intensity each time. I found Justin to be very professional in his approach to the treatments and also his sharing of tips and tricks for labour were invaluable. He is a fountain of knowledge and my only regret is that I didn't start the sessions earlier in the third trimester to get the full benefits that I believe acupuncture can achieve.
During my first pregnancy I suffered ongoing chronic back and pelvis pain, however believed (like many woman) that this was just a normal part of pregnancy. My first appointment with Justin Dwen was approximately one hour, during this time he asked numerous questions regarding my background. I found Justin to be very personable, professional and extremely friendly. After just one treatment the right side of my pelvis was 100% better. I would highly recommend Justin Dwen to anyone suffering with problems of any sort during pregnancy.
After many days of labour being off and on, the acupuncture session with [Justin] finally got the contractions to become more consistent and regular. After seeing you it was only a matter of a few hours and our baby was born. I would highly recommend you for acupuncture for both good health during pregnancy and helping with gentle labour induction.
When I first started to see [Justin] in 2009 I was perimenopausal, suffering from regular severe headaches, mood swings and depressive feelings. From the first treatment I felt stronger with my symptoms reducing. I am now through menopause and feeling really well and healthy.
I first went to Justin after searching for an acupuncturist who specialised in fertility treatment. Justin treated me just before and straight after having our embryo transferred which resulted in a successful pregnancy. I found Justin's treatment professional and he displayed a very thorough knowledge on the topic of fertility whilst providing a relaxed and calming environment.
