Marianne – May 2017
Here is a message from Marinne. Very kind indeed!
“amazing ” – Mrs Hambley – Shrewsbury
I began seeing a Chinese doctor, who was amazing, she worked in harmony with my medicated fertility cycles and would advise certain practices, food and habits at different points of the month, such as moxibustion, kidney warming, eating lots of sweet potato and having been vegan and then vegetarian I even followed her instructions to have plenty of bowls of chicken soup, I would also not go anywhere without my feet snuggled in a big pair of warm woolly socks, for the Chinese believe that by keeping the feet warm aids circulation, especially to the uterus and I would happily embrace the 45 minutes I did nothing except lie in a peaceful room, listening to relaxing music whilst I had acupuncture. Clinical research has found that receiving acupuncture alongside IVF treatment can increase pregnancy rates by 65%* and although this was still my goal, over the months of regular visits to Dr Zou I had also started to find that the grief that I had been carrying deep inside my stomach since the death of my brother started to lift and with it I had started to experience a new optimism."

6 sessions of acupuncture, my blood retest confirmed what I already knew, as I was feeling so much better. That I wouldn’t need to start taking lifelong medication for my thyroid as the test showed, it was now normal.
Thank you very much for your extremely professional treatment.
Wow what a difference it has made – Ron, Shrewsbury
Published in ‘AS News – Spring 2016’.
After much thought and a little research, I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Wow what a difference it has made. I’m unsure of the total effect on pain relief but it has had an immense impact on my overall sense of body relaxation and physical and mental well being.
In Autumn 2015 after a little additional neck pain, my acupuncturist massaged my neck following my acupuncture session. She then explained she did also offer acupressure massage. After just three sessions I am wholly committed to this. The effect on my neck and shoulders has been amazing plus the overall whole body experience is really profound. A hour of acupressure massage, possibly alongside acupuncture, could be considered a useful contribution to AS therapeutic treatment options."
Ms J Waters – May 2013
Having Attended St John’s Hill Clinic for a number of years, I can only state that the treatment receive from Dr Daian Zou is helping me to function in life without having to rely on a large dose of strong pain killers taken daily. I found that not only did the pain killers not stop most of the plain, but upset my stomach which gave a general feeling of being unwell."
A breath of fresh air – Ms. Hugh
I just want to say ‘Thank You’ for your help with Acupuncture and Acupressure. I appreciated it very much, & received benefits.
Also have been helped by your taking the pulse & examining the tongue, and your talking to me about these – most helpful.
With regard to your treatment & Acupressure with me for about ONE hour! – amazing. I received so much help from that – as if I became more aware of my body.
I have written rather than calling in at your clinic, as I did not want to interrupt your work.
After my experience of Western Medicine, it was a breath of fresh air, having treatment from you – many many thanks."
A number of years ago I developed a severe back pain due to a slight curve of the spine which the Xray had shown. The doctor prescribed pain killers & a set of exercises for me to do. A friend who at the time was having acupuncture for her shoulder advised me to consult Dr. Daian to see what she could do for me, which I did. She explained that it would never be healed but she could help.
At the time most weeks I was in pain. Not only that but I found it difficult to sleep. Now (after treatment) rarely does the pain wake me. I am not without pain but it is under control of which I am highly grateful."

What Our Patients Say
- ~ Darrent – Shrewsbury
"My wife and I went to see a specialist at the hospital because we have been unsuccessful in trying for a baby and we found out the problem was with me. I had a sperm count of around 3 million sperm per milliliter of semen, when 20 million or more is considered a normal count. At the same time I was receiving treatment from Daian Zou for a knee injury that meant I could barely run properly and I mentioned that we were having difficulty trying for a baby. Not only did Daian fix my knee so I can run for miles now, she prescribed a course of acupuncture, herbs and lifestyle advice that produced amazing results. Soon after starting treatment my sperm count went up to 5 million and now its well over the required 20 million which is enough for conception. "
