Adam Leighton Testimonials

for Acupuncture & Cupping and Traditional Chinese Medicine.


Testimonials #01

"Acupuncture at the Eden Clinic corrected my Bell's Palsy face in only 10 sessions.

You can imagine what it's like to discover one morning that you have Bell's Palsy. When people tell you that acupuncture will help, you can imagine the scepticism with which that remark is greeted. Ten sessions later with Adam at the Eden Clinic, and my scepticism has been removed, and replaced with a great sense of thanks- and a different face! See the pictures above.

I have only one regret; that I left it a couple of months before I went to Adam in the first place. I cannot thank him enough."


A British Acupuncture Council video providing an insight into how Adam works and treats his patient John Joseph, who has suffered from back pain for many years.



"I was referred to Adam Leighton of the Eden clinic after trying months of physiotherapy and steroid injections for a fractured thumb which had been causing me a lot of pain . I am so grateful to Adam he has helped me enormously in a kind and caring way . More to the point my pain is gone and my thumb no longer throbs constantly ! I will certainly go to him again for any ailments of this kind. "
- Andrea Murray (2015)


"To those who approach acupuncture with trepidation or even scepticism, welcome to my world.

Many years ago as a last resort after trying every proprietary analgesic creams / painkillers / and seemingly voodoo doctors playing around with bones and muscles I didn't know existed, I accepted that millions of Chinese can’t be wrong and looked for someone to stick needles in me ( and not utter a curse !)

It worked. I turn up, walking like a demented crab, Adam gets me to lie on a bed, a few needles, sometimes burning incense, a few words of wisdom (forgotten almost as I fall asleep) and one hour later a new me emerges like a butterfly from a chrysalis.

Do I believe in him? yes!
Do I trust his extensive knowledge? yes!
Do I recommend him? yes!"
- J Joseph

"I came to Adam Leighton suffering from shingles, which had developed into post hepatic neuralgia. My doctor told me it might take a year or more to recover. I was in severe pain, despite being on two types of painkillers, and sleeping was very difficult. A friend suggested I try acupuncture, and I therefore contacted the Eden Clinic. I had an initial consultation with Adam over the phone, and was impressed by his knowledge and experience. I then visited the Eden Centre, and after two sessions the pain had completely subsided. It was truly a miracle. Even my doctor was impressed! I would recommend Adam to anyone, and would add that acupuncture really works. I am really indebted to the Eden Centre."
- M Archer Oct 2014

"My 14 year old son has been treated by Adam Leighton for insomnia and migraines. We followed Adam's advice regarding nutrition and after acupuncture and cupping treatments, he started to feel much better, his overall health has improved greatly and he feels that he can concentrate better at school too. After one appointment for a sports injury to his knee he immediately began to feel relief from the discomfort. Adam puts you at ease immediately with his pleasant, kind and friendly manner. Thank you very much, Adam!"
- HF Feb 2013

"I've had problems with my left arm for some time. I was extremely impressed with Adam fom the outset. I found him to be a warm and engaging person - very professional, extremely knowledgeable and someone who believes passionately in what they practice. With no previous experience of acupuncture, I'd been recommended to Adam by someone close to me. I think it's fair to say that I became aware of an improvement after the first session. Subsequent visits reinforced my belief in the treatment. I'd certainly consider returning to Adam should I experience other health concerns in the future."
- Keith Feb 2013


"I suffered with chronic sinus problems for as long as I remember and after trying everything from surgery to remove polyps to herbal remedies I really thought there was no hope. The first day I walked into Adams clinic I could hardly talk through my congested nose. After about 6 sessions of acupuncture I could feel a difference and now 6 months later my nose hardly bothers me. He has given me invaluable dietary and lifestyle advice to support both mine and my family's health. Thank you Adam!!"
- Sharon Nov 2013

"I was very Impressed with my treatments at the Eden clinic. All the staff gave me a warm welcome every time I visited. This made me feel ay ease from my first visit. Adam is very knowledgeable and confident in his work. He was able to answer all my questions and more. My treatments were always on time and perfectly suited to me. I highly recommend Adam as he is very professional and the treatments are amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed each session and always left with a great sense of well being. Thank you Adam"
- Sam Dec 2013


"Very professional and thorough approach looking at all aspects if your health not only the issue you have presented with. Adam is very supportive but not too soft! My problems related specifically to my digestive system and the symptoms improved immediately. The treatment I have received has made a big difference to my quality of life and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend acupuncture to my friends."
- Despina Constantinides Sept 2013

"Having suffered from back pain for 6 years and having tried all types of traditional medicine to solve the problem, I turned to acupuncture to see if that might help. I was a bit of a sceptic at first but I am so pleased I gave it a go. Acupuncture really is the only treatment that gives me immediate and long term relief and I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone suffering from muscular discomfort".
- S Israel

"Earlier this year, I'd made two long haul flights to America and Hong Kong - both resulting in terrible jet-lag on my return. On each occasion, it took about a week from landing to get back into a normal sleep pattern. I was falling asleep at 6pm, then wide awake until the small hours and feeling really wretched with it. Not surprisingly I was finding it very difficult to concentrate at work, and even trying to tire myself out with exercise didn't really help.

When I recently made a third international trip, again to America, I had already started having acupuncture a few weeks previously for other reasons. On Adam's recommendation, I came in to see him on the day that I landed. I'd arrived back in the UK at 6am not having slept at all on the flight. I crashed out for a couple of hours before my session and then dragged myself to the clinic for my appointment. After my session I felt pretty human for the rest of the day, which was a minor miracle in itself. That night, I slept deeply for 12 hours. After that, I was totally back to my normal sleeping patterns - no residual jet-lag at all, really good energy levels and no concentration issues at work.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend an acupuncture session after travelling. It made a huge difference to me, and I'd definitely make this a regular part to any overseas trip."
- Jessica K

"I would like to thank you once again for your brilliant, fast cure of my neck, shoulder, arm problem. Less than 2 weeks (July 2010) ago I was in excruciating pain, now I'm happily driving, gardening etc. again.

Should I ever have a similar problem again, I know where to go and I would recommend you to anybody."

- Max Z

"Hi. Just wanted to say thx so much for coming today and for recommendation to Mr. Dooley. We are so pleased with the outcome of mtg and wouldn’t have got this far without your help and advice."
- SC

"My knees were in a terrible state. I was struggling to negotiate stairs. I have been told I need both knees replaced. Acupuncture helped me be pain free, able to go for long walks and get up and down stairs!"
- Mrs.M


"I had facial pain (Bells Palsy) and I am pleased to report I am now more or less 100% better and back to normal. Although I took conventional medicine I am sure your treatments with acupuncture made my recovery much quicker..."
- Mr.L(Surgeon)

"For the last 10 years, Adam [Leighton] has been treating my MS (Multiple Sclerosis) symptoms with Acupuncture therapy to beneficial effect. On each appointment I describe current symptoms I'm suffering. The needles are put in so lightly, only just penetrating my skin but, I find Acupuncture eases any discomfort I've been experiencing and relaxing..."
- KJ from Barnet

"I broke my patella September 04 and after 7 months of NHS physiotherapy I was still walking with a limp and in a lot of pain. I decided to try Eden Clinic for Acupuncture [Adam Leighton]. One month from the day I limped in, I can honestly say that the treatment received has helped me enormously both for pain relief and mobility. I cannot thank the practice enough for helping me on my return to normality and I have been and will continue to recommend them."
- GB from Barnet

"Hi from New York, just wanted to say thanks, you fixed my knee!"
- DJ

"Adam, I am walking to M&S and can’t believe I can feel so much better already!"

"I have suffered from hayfever since the age of 15. Each year it has become progressively worse affecting my sleeping pattern, my work and social life. Nothing prescribed by my doctor helped in any way.

This year I finally decided that I needed to do something else and a work colleague suggested acupuncture. Frankly I was extremely sceptical and felt like it was all a load of new age nonsense, however I found the Eden Clinic on the internet and decided to give it a try. Within 2 sessions the change was apparent - I was sleeping better and finding the allergies had eased considerably.

I have now had several sessions and the change has been so dramatic that I have now finished my treatment for this year. Given the remarkably sunny weather we are having (which would normally have me hiding away indoors) I feel virtually hayfever free and can actually enjoy the summer for a change.

For those people who like me were almost in tears at some points I cannot recommend this treatment highly enough - and for those sceptics - it genuinely does work!!"
- Nicki Mc

"Recommendation by a recent convert!

I had always been sceptical about complementary therapies until I was persuaded to try treatments provided by Adam (and Annette). The aim was to alleviate arthritic pain pending hip surgery. It was a great success."

- AD

"Having previously experienced the benefits of acupuncture I was concerned when my practitioner moved away and I was in need of further treatment. But I need not have worried. Fortunately my doctor told me a number of her patients had recommended the Eden Clinic, a very welcoming place made so by the therapists who practice there.

I am often asked whether acupuncture is worth the expense and I always assure them that as far as I am concerned it is. It may not cure but it invariably helps to ameliorate my pain; a fact that was proved very forcibly to me recently when I was unable to have any treatment for a number of weeks by the end of which time much of the benefit I had gained had worn off and I was in agony again but further treatment soon helped.

I never fail to suggest to friends who have a problem to give acupuncture a try as it can help in so many other areas.

Jacquie Lloyd Testimonials

for Counselling, NLP, Reiki and Stress Management.

"If you'd told me that there were so many things about myself I didn't know, I would never have believed you. I have become so self-aware and able to realise what is having an affect on me and how I am instrumental in changing the things I am not happy with and learning to come to terms with things I cannot change."

Over time she has helped me to change behaviour and habits and to see the world from a different point of view. She has supported me through life changing events and given me the confidence to trust myself."

Christine Guerrier Testimonials

for Osteopathy and Sports Massage.

- C.S

"Christine, I couldn't believe how quickly and painlessly such chronic pain could be relieved and the treatment made my whole back feel so much better, not just the area I had come to have treated."
- Nicki Jackson

"Dear Christine, I had been suffering from headaches and a stiff neck for the last couple of years. Friends recommended you to me, but I was scared in case my neck was going to be clicked. You listened to my concerns and the treatment was really gentle and I felt so much better afterwards. I am still following your advice and have been headache free since my last treatment. Thank you."
- T.C

"Hi Christine & the Eden Clinic,
My whole family visits the Eden Clinic, they've helped with back and neck troubles. I frequently visit the clinic to gain more flexibility in my back which was giving me massive problems, but not anymore."
- C.I

"I have been attending the clinic for the past year Christine Guerrier's hard work has been invaluable to curing my back problems and helping me recover from a broken leg. Christine is a great asset and I highly recommend her."
- F.E

"Being a professional photographer, as well as lugging bags of heavy equipment, digital photography means I now spend much of my working life sat on a computer working on my photographs. This inevitably leads to muscle stiffness and tension in my neck, shoulders and back.

Christine has made a huge improvement. I am constantly amazed how much difference just one treatment can make. She also explains how interlinked the muscle groups are and gives tips for exercises and prevention."
- P.L

"Dear Christine and Adam,
I just wanted to say thank you both so much for all your support over the last few months.

I dread to think what I would have felt like without the treatment."

- J.T

Marina Townsley Testimonials

for Naturopathy, Nutritional Therapy and Herbal Medicine.

"I’ve known Marina for a year. Marina is extremely professional, highly knowledgeable of her subject and very caring. The herbal Adrenal Support Mix has really helped me cope with the stress that I’ve been under and I would have no hesitation in recommending her (and do frequently!)."
- Clare C.

"Marina has been a great help to me and I will have no hesitation in going to her whenever I have any medical problems. She is very sympathetic and gave me a very in-depth consultation. I suffered from severe pre-menopausal symptoms including depression, now I am symptoms free - I only wish I had seen Marina before. Herbal tincture prepared by Marina helped me a lot. I got rid of my depression and all my other problems. She is very passionate about herbs, she has got exceptional listening skills. I would totally recommend Marina to anyone."
- Еlena V.

"Since a hysterectomy, resulting in a surgical menopause aged 45 yrs, I have had no help with my severe lack of energy, and very low mood, from the medical profession or various alternative therapy practitioners. So it was with reluctance that I had a consultation with Marina after a mutual friend suggested she might be able to help.

The initial assessment was thorough. Having listened to my explanation of symptoms that I was still having ten years after the surgery, Marina calmly and gently prescribed tinctures, herbal teas and specific foods as well as changing my usual diet. I was at last able to address the physical and mental 'depression' I was experiencing. Within one month I was noticing an increase in energy levels and I was not feeling so low. My health has continued to improve over the next six months and I feel confident that I will never again feel as awful as I had felt.

Marina was interested in my whole being and I was able to trust her confidentiality for her to then be able to suggest various remedies. Ultimately we discovered that a change of diet, based on the results from a food intolerance test and my blood group test, have relieved my symptoms brilliantly. I now have energy and a calm sense of being that I have not felt in years. Many, many thanks Marina."
- Mrs. C-S

"I just want to say thanks to Marina for her advice in helping my husband and I get pregnant. We took her advice and modified our diets, took the high quality supplements and herbal remedy she made up for us, and our second baby is due in a couple of months. I would be happy to recommend Marina to friends who are struggling with their fertility, and in fact have given her details to someone last night."
- S. B.

"When I went to see Marina, I was at my lowest point and at my biggest. I tried many different diets and the main ones that helped me lose the weight were the liquid ones, but I put all the weight back on and more. I went to see Marina because I was binge eating and could not control myself. She gave me a plan to follow and recommended vitamins that my body was lacking. I lost 8 lbs in my first week and I don't have the cravings anymore. I feel much calmer and happier."
- P. A.
