I am so grateful for all the help Lidia has given me in taking control of my anxiety and related health issues. I was astounded by the power of EFT to help free me from non-stop worrying and to help me feel able to cope with the demands of a stressful working situation and to restore my feelings of self-belief. A course of acupuncture following on from learning EFT has really helped me feel like myself again. I am so thankful for how Lidia has helped to change my life so much for the better. Without her outstanding support and treatments, I do not feel I would have felt strong enough to apply for and secure a new job.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Lidia supported me through my breast cancer treatment with with acupressure and moxa treatments to help my body cope with the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy regimes. I found Lidia calm, thorough and a really good listener, who reassured and amended her planned course of tratment to respond to my specific needs at the time. I would recommend her to anyone going through a cancer diagnosis and treatment; her skilled interventions supported and helped me to cope. I also appreciated that Lidia was willing to treat me at home when I was unable to get to her clinic. Thanks, Lidia.
I went to Lidia for help with some health issues and experienced the benefits of both acupuncture and EFT. In their different ways, they both contributed to my journey to wellness again. Lidia is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and sensitive in her approach along with being extremely supportive and kind so it's a winning combination. Thank you for everything, Lidia! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have been affected by arthritis for the last 15 years, mainly in my hands and feet. During a recent particularly bad episode, someone suggested I try acupuncture. After the first treatment by Lidia, my swollen joints had substantially reduced and the pain eased greatly. She also relieved me of the continuous dull headaches I was having, for which there was no apparent medical reason. Certainly glad I gave it a try!
I think it is essential that we all have an open mind with regard to complementary therapies available. If we consider them carefully then we can see the wisdom of centries is imbued in the practices - and acupuncture is no exception. In 2014 I had recourse to the medical profession when suffering from very severe sinusitis - with a face full of pain and unable to look out on the world due to the high level of ever present pain. Strong antibiotics had been prescribed alongside of inhalation/decongestants. With no respite available after months, I looked to acupuncture as a positive arm to try and assist in finding relief at least. This was a joint venture with Lidia - she ensured that you realsie that your total health and well being need to be addressed alongside of the critical issue.(Study the information she gives you - ensure that you participate in this as a joint venture and remeber that she cannot treat what she does not know). I did precisely that - and after a relatively short period of time, the sinusitis problem ceased. I now will undertake a maintenance programme. This will ensure I continue to keep an eye on my total wellbeing.
I have been going to acupuncture sessions with Lidia for a few weeks now and I have had nothing but success from the treatments that Lidia has done to ease the pain in my lower back and legs, which I have had for 5 years. I can't believe how effective it's all been and I will definitely be continuing with treatments. I am truly amazed at how much of my life it has changed for the better. I can only say what an amazing and effective service you will receive and you won't regret it.
I consulted Lidia a few weeks ago after realising that acupuncture could help with mental health issues as well as physical ailments. I was feeling low after a traumatic few years and a bereavement to top it off. I felt I had lost my mojo and my usual positive zest for life was a struggle to find. Life was hard work and I was putting up a front to the world but becomong increasingly anxious and disillusioned inside. Lidia was so thorough and I was really impressed by the time she took going through my history, mental and physical. She really seemed to empathise with what I was saying. After a series of treatments and some EFT to back it up, I now feel back to normal - re-energised and at peace. Calm has ensued and I feel positive and optimsitic again. I would highly recommend Lidia - whatever your issue, have a chat with her and see if she can help.

I began working with Lidia with EFT and Matrix Reimprinting to clear old issues and beliefs that were holding me back. Lidia provides a calm, non judgemental atmosphere which feels very safe and kind. The sessions we had really helped me to clear blocks and I feel as though the major impediments to my confidence have now gone. I also feel very calm about events from my past which previously made me feel angry and helpless. I have a very busy lifestyle and live too far from the Lidia's clinic to attend personally so we had our sessions by Skype from the comfort of my own living room! It worked very well for me and remaining in my own familiar environment helped me to feel safe and secure while exploring potentially painful issues. I'd certainly recommend it to anybody considering EFT or Matrix Reimprinting with Lidia, for whom distance is a concern.
If anyone is feeling grotty, suffering from an illness that's not getting better or just needs a boost the I fully recommend acupuncture with Lidia. She had some wonders for my constant headaches and tiredness. I just wouldn't hesitate to get in touch!
Having dealt with health-related issues medicinally for many years, I decided to try acupuncture. I went with low expectations. However, the results have been profound. Lidia is extremely knowledgable with her diagnosis and treatments and also explains things with a level of detail that I can truly understand. I am now a regular and genuinely look forward to my treatments.
A girlfriend recently commented that she didn't experience the familiar female "hot flushes" but instead had "power surges". This made me think about how to turn the negative associations of monthly female hormonal changes into something more positive. This was particularly relelvant for me as I had reached a stage where I could only get through one or two days in the month by being drugged up on pain killers in order to maintain any form of normal functioning. Clearly not a good place to be. I met Lidia throught the Women in Rural Enterprise network and decided to give acupuncture a try - after all, I ws substituting well tried and tested Western "block it out " medicine with traditional but for me, untested Eastern medicine. What had I to lose? My first meeting with Lidia put my mind at rest as she explained the process to me. The needles were not painful at all, which was a welcome surprise, and neither were the surges to my "chi" which I experienced - a key part of my self healing programme. As we worked through a course of treatment together I realised the fundamental difference between my pain blocking self administered help and acupuncture - the latter was working with my own body, by releasing my "chi" to enable it to heal itself. And the result? Although not entirely without some of the regular feminine stresses, I am now able to work through on "bad days" without having to resort to pain blockers as a coping mechanism. This has been a major step forward. My partner has also noticed how much calmer the acupuncture has made me in coping with the intricacies of being a woman - a very positive step forward for both of us!!
Lidia has helped me immensely through a difficult time in my life. I was feeling very anxious and EFT really helped with my anxiety. One of my panic attacks was so bad that I felt too frightened to drive my car. Within one hour of EFT I was able to drive around the block and I haven't looked back since. Lidia taught me some helf-help techniques and I still practise tapping in tense situations. Lidia has a very calming manner and I have recommended her to friends and family.
I went to see Lidia for a whole load of problems: anxiety, fatigue, widespread muscle pain, brain fog, low self esteem, mood swings, poor vision, I really felt that I'd completely lost my life because I didn't even have the energy to look after myself. We started off with EFT for the pain which was surprisingly amazing, it worked so quickly! The most amazing thing was when we did EFT on my thoughts that I was bad and the fact that I hated myself. That was the last time I had those thoughts, I fully expected them to come back but they never did and my confidence has grown and grown since. Lidia was also so kind and nonjudgemental which, given the emotional problems involved was much appreciated. Then I had some acupuncture, to put it simply, in February I could hardly walk with the pain, now I am doing aerobics and cycling, the brain fog has lifted, panic attacks are rare rather than the norm and I finally got my bounce back. Thanks Lidia.
Becky, Bidford on Avon
My daughter was under a great deal of pressure to pass an exam recently. The stress was causing her a lot of worry and sleepless nights. I decided to take her to see Lidia to help her take control of the situation. Lidia was fantastic. She taught my daughter relaxation and EFT techniques which helped relax her and give her an inner confidence to approach the task in hand. She was successful in her exam and I am sure much of what Lidia has taught her will be useful with future exams and challenges. Mrs P, Kenilworth
As a live-in carer for the elderly, I do want to thank you for your excellent work facilitating the help I have needed on more than one occasion. I do look forward to my time there in that sacred space of yours, feeling supported and safe and able to update you, with the help of your focused questions, on my ailments. After your "ponder" I am always amazed at your unerring accuracy with my acupuncture treatment and how incredibly congruent I feel afterwards. Thank you so much. LdB, Kenilworth
Dear Lidia, I'd like to thank you sincerely for all the care and support that you have consistently given me in my road to recovery from Chronic Fatigue. As you know it has been a long, bumpy journey. I came to you in desperation to get my health back, something that like many people , I had clearly taken for granted. For years, I had juggled working a stressful fulltime job with raising a family as well as fitting in my dedicated personal training. This evetually, sadly took its toll overnight - it was as if somebody had just flicked off a switch. Some days I barely had the energy to get out of bed and hold a conversation.... Acupuncture has allowed me to look back and reflect. I now realise that you can physically look fit and well on the outside whilst inside you could be crumbling, as my experience of ill-health has proved. I am grateful to be able to look back at those last 6 months and see how far I have come - all thanks to your treatments along with much needed rest. I now see the light and know I will continue to grow stronger each day as a more "balanced" new me.
I sincerely appreciate your wise words of wisdom, Lidia. You gave me hope and always treated me as a whole (mind and body). You clearly have a special talent, Lidia. May you continue to thrive and use the power of needles to heal forever! Without hesitation I will recommend you highly! Thank you Lidia from the bottom of my heart. BB Coventry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I began treatment with Lidia in Spring 2012 because of fertility problems delaying the conception of my second child. Lidia treated me for around 3 months, after which I became pregnant! Lidia was always caring and professional and took time to research specific problems in my medical history. I was particularly impressed with Lidia's holistic approach to my care - she gave careful consideration to my physical and emotional well being , as well as with issues of diet and lifestyle affecting my health.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ During my treatments with Lidia, I noticed some significant changes in my digestive system and my general aches and pains. As my anxiety levels slowly lowered, it gave me the tools to recognise the cause of my anxieties and the confidence to quash them. Thank you , Lidia, you have been a great support. Keep up the good work.
I recently went to see Lidia about my Spider Phobia. Many people misunderstand phobias. A phobia can take over your life. I always checked out every room I slept in and in unknown houses I have great difficulty getting comfortable, which can be embarassing when trying to make new friends. Since visiting Lidia three times, there has been a major shift in my phobia. I no longer fear going into the rooms in my house. I do not even check for the posiible presence of Spiders anywhere. I do not say I am completely cured but ther has beena wonderful change. I feel very comfortable with where I am with my Spider thing and look to progress further with the EFT techniques that Lidia teaches. Chrys, Kenilworth
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have just completed my first ever batch of acupuncture sessions. I arrived open minded, perhaps slightly sceptical, but interested to see what would happen. I was just recovering from a bad back for which I had had two steroid epidurals over 3 months and was still suffering from a trapped nerve down my left leg. Lidia's holistic approach delivered better than expected results over the initial course of treatments.I felt better than I have done for a long time and I attribute this to the treatments from Lidia. Going forward, I plan to make sure I have a regular refresher treatment as part of my maintenance program for an ageing body. Jeremy, Kenilworth.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am so pleased with the results of my EFT treatment. I was suffering with panic attacks in enclosed spaces which were restrictiong me professionally and personally. In just a couple of sessions with Lidia I started feeling more confident and I am amazed how quickly the treatment has worked. I am now able to cope in situations that I previously completely avoided. I have recommended EFT to everyone I meet who suffers from anxiety. Charlotte, Coventry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I met Lidia through a business network and when I saw how joyous and passionate she is about her therapy, I decided to try acupuncture for chronic pain in my neck and shoulder that I've had for about 2 years. I'd tried lots of different therapies, conventional and holistic, over the last couple of years , with varying degrees of temporary success, but nothing lasted.
I was a little nervous about acupuncture as I don't like needles at all - but I need not have worried. From the off, Lidia was very sensitive to my nervousness, explaining everything she was doing so there were no surprises and in every session I have felt 100% safe and nurtured. I would never worry about acupuncture again - and I've recommended Lidia to loads of friends.
Better still, the therapy has been effective over a longer period than any other to date. I've gone from near constant pain to only very occasional twinges and what's better , through talking with Lidia before each session, I've gained an insight into the source of my pain (not physical but emotional) and now when my shoulder speaks to me, I know to treat it as a signal to adjust my attitude to whatever is happening at the time.
I had hoped acupuncture could help with the physical pain I was in; what I didn't anticipate was how many other aspects of my life would change for the better as soon as I began receiving treatment. My attitude to things like my finances, my job and my relationships changed, all for the better and I found myself encouraged to make changes that I had not previously faced up to the need for. Things have improved on every front - not magically, but because I have been able to change the way I am within my circumstances. I've genuinely experienced Lidia's treatment as a source of motivation and courage to do this.
And if this sounds a bit gushy and unbelievable - well, it's because it's true and I'm delighted - so I'd recommend anyone to try it.
Huge thanks from me.
Rev. Becky Jones, Kenilworth Interfaith Minister
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My name is Melanie. I have been coming for acupuncture for 18 months. I had a hysterectomy and then severe menopausal symptoms and I found that acupuncture helped me through them. I no longer had any hot flushes which was a tremendous relief! Acupuncture also helped me through the mood swings and lifted my mood. I am so pleased I found an alternative treatment as HRT was not an option. Recently I have been suffering from vertigo due to a head injury. Acupuncture has helped me through this and has reduced the symptoms.
I see Lidia for regular maintenance and can talk to Lidia about how I am feeling. Lidia is professional and always treats me with empathy and I would like to say thank you Lidia for what you have done for me and what you are still doing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have been seeing Lidia for over a year to receive treatment for a physical problem. During the first session I had a consultation which was very thorough from which Lidia made a diagnosis before the start of treatment. I felt that this was a very professional approach and it put me at ease for the future visits.
On each occasion I went for acupuncture the treatment was fully explained and Lidia was always at pains to ensure I was completely prepared . Each session had a revitalising effect and resulted in a feeling of wellbeing for me. Follow-up treatments were given according to how I felt between sessions.
My condition improved and I now go for top-up treatments or if I feel unwell. I fee that Lidia has a thorough and a professional approach and would recommend her to others considering acupuncture treatments.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "I met Lidia at a 4Networking Business meeting and warmed to her immediately and made an appointment for some treatment. Lidia was extremely thorough and professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I feel fantastic and can attribute this to the work that I did with Lidia - Thank you!" CM, Grendon
I found my (acupuncture) treatment with Lydia to be a thoroughly gentle experience; the atmosphere in her lovely treatment room was calm and restful. I felt cared for and nourished by my sessions. HS, Kenilworth
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Lidia treated me for several months and thanks to her treatment the physical symptoms I was suffering at that time have gone. During my first consultation, it came to light that I was under a certain amount of stress, and this Lidia also treated. I found her to be extremely empathetic, a great listener and very professional. I had every confidence in her treatment and felt better and relaxed after each session. She also has a great sense of humour which for me is very important.
I am keeping well but know that I would quickly return should I feel the need for further treatment.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For two years my 13 year old son was experiencing sleeping problems. I arranged a course of CBT for him which was successful in helping him to manage his anxieties about not getting enough sleep. I sought Lidia's help to complement the CBT by using acupuncture as a method of enabling my son to relax more easily. Lidia quickly developed a very good relationship with my son, delivering thorough explanations of the process at every stage and providing sound practical advice. My son looked forward to the sessions and there has been a significant improvement in his sleeping. He now has a much more regular sleeping pattern but most importantly is not anxious or worried about not being able to get off to sleep quickly. Thank you Lidia for your care and concern.
M and J, Balsall Common.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I went to see Lidia a couple of days after hurting my back whilst working in the garden. At the time, I was struggling to get out of bed and couldn't move around comfortably. Lidia treated me with moxa and acupuncture and my back improved rapidly. After two acupuncture treatments and repeated moxa applications I was able to enjoy a variety of activities whilst on holiday in the Lake District. Lidia exudes a sense of calm and understanding. She was not only interested in my back problem but in my health and well being as a whole. I left each session feeling positive and energised. I would not hesitate to see her again if I felt the need and would totally recommend her as a practitioner. Helen, Kenilworth. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Having had two courses of acupuncture from Lidia for a painful back problem, I now feel much less pain and have no need to take any painkillers. Movement is also much less painful and I would recommend Lidia as a caring practitioner of acupuncture.
B McW, Balsall Common
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When I visited Lidia in relation to a specific ailment, I was sceptical but prepared to be open-minded. Her whole approach was reassuring, from her empathetic manner and courteous professionalism to the holistic way in which she looked at my situation. I felt completely comfortable and at ease and my confidence in her skills grew with each session. After a few visits, I had not only observed a significant improvement in the initial ailment I had visiited her about , but I had also experienced several beneficial side-effects I had not anticipated, including a marked improvement in my sleep and a major reduction in my stress levels.
Andy, Kenilworth ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dear Lydia, I am writing to thank you for the help that your acupuncture treatment is having on my general health and on particular MS symptoms. After only 11 treatments my MS fatigue is greatly reduced and my bowel health is beginning to improve. Having started out as a sceptic I am now a convert. Many thanks for your sympathetic approach to my condition and for your specialist research into treating it.
Janice ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Being a carer for my husband who has Alzheimer’s Disease, is very stressful. It was suggested that acupuncture may help to keep my spirits up and lessen my stress. I started going to see Lidia last December (2010) and after about 4 treatments I started to feel more “laid back” and not so woundup. Even colleagues at work noticed I was coping much better.Lidia has also treated me for various aches and pains which have had the desired results and made my life much better.I still have 2 treatments a month to keep me ticking along and making the day to day caring much easier.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have been a patient of Lidia's for about 14 months and what would I do without her? I initially went to her with back and shoulder problems which have improved enormously, but she also treats me for whatever I need at the time. She is amazing at diagnosing my physical and emotional problems. I tend to get stressed easily especially on the run up to Christmas, but now I just take everything in my stride and have a much more relaxed approach to life in general. I also had a tendency to S.A.D. at this time of year but not anymore, thanks to Lidia's treatment.
I cannot think of enough superlatives to describe Lidia. She is professional, caring, empathetic, supportive, extremely easy to talk to and takes a genuine interest in a person as a whole and not just with medical conditions. She is an excellent therapist and makes one feel at home and relaxed in her lovely clinic. I feel extremely privileged to be a patient of hers.
