Dr. Li is very professional, kind and knowledgable - he listens to my concerns patiently and offers very sensible and professional advice. As a patient, I tried both acupuncture and herbal medicines and was feeling a lot afterwards. I would recommend paying a visit to this decent clinic if you wanted to give Chinese medicine a try.
I bought a Bespoke Individually Tailored Nutritional Programme and Health Analysis. I was so impressed. The detail that it went into was amazing and since making some small changes to my diet I feel dramatically different. I honestly didn't think it was possible to feel this good. Emma is kind, helpful and very knowledgeable. I will be recommending to all my friends. Thank you.
Really useful. Received lots of interesting info. Went for a food allergy test. Was painless and very quick. Got a printout of foods that I can and shouldn't eat. Highly pleased.
Have just returned from a two week stay at Amchara. The first week I went with a friend, the second I spent alone and I am so pleased I booked two weeks. Had mixed feelings about going as I had never done anything like this before. 2012 had been a really tough year, not one I would like to repeat. Events had left me tired, irritable and quite frankly worn out both mentally and physically. I had also gained a good stone in weight. I left Amchara feeling like a new woman, am amazed at the transformation in just two weeks. I have lost a stone in weight, my skin looks glowing, I have slept well and feel really refreshed and energetic. My thanks to the staff, their knowledge and care of everyone is so good. They are without exception, dedicated to ensuring everyone gets the very best out of their time spent there. My description of Amchara would not be a holiday or a break but the beginning of a life changing journey. Thank you to all the staff at Amchara - you are fantastic.
Siam Studio impresses with it`s home and friendly atmosphere, competent, qualified professionals and excellent service! Thank you very much!
very bad customer service. Massage was for less time than you paid for. Overall extremely disappointed. Feels like a complete waste of money even though the therapist wasnt all bad.
The staff are friendly and the room's ambience was lovely and relaxing. The history taking was thorough. I was however expecting to pay for one treatment and ended up getting charged for two! I paid for these as they had been received (however two acupuncture needles were accidently left in and had to be removed after the treatment). My warning is one that comes from a knowledgeable background, having attended 3 previous chinese doctors when living elsewhere, as well as doctors in China itself and as a martial artist. The doctor in Alton just wanted my money! She went on and on about how I should pay for 10 treatments. When I said I could not afford that, she then said 5. I said I would have to spread these out, but she was insistent I could just pop them on my card. I explained that I have a young family and bills to pay. For 10 minutes she haggled with me, insisting that as a teacher my wage should cover it!! I am afraid by doing this she has lost any future treatments of myself. I was married to a Chinese man for many years and we are still very good friends, he had warned me that Chinese doctors in this country are not to be trusted. I do not agree entirely with this as the ones at Dr. China in Bournemouth and Martine Niven of Natural Healingalso in Bournemouth are excellent and hide nothing!! The treatments really do work, as do the herbs. Please dont be put off Chinese medicine as it is amazing. However in my opinion, the setting in Alton, is likely to over charge you and give you more treatments than you need.
Was booked in for a 1 hour massage and hot cupping. The massage lasted about 40 mins, then 20mins cupping (so the whole process was 1 hour, not the massage, as advertised). The place had little cubicles shut with curtains. Was told to strip to just knickers, and was left sitting on a bed in semi dark for a while with no cover, and feeling a little exposed ! I am pleased to report that the actual massage was really very good, with the therapost checking for pressure and trouble areas etc...Did feel like I was being sold to quite a bit overall though, with a consultation before and after treatment. Before treatment was told I would benefit from upgrading to a deep tissue massage for only £10 (!), then on way out was told I have wonky vertebrae and was recommended a £50 treatment session to correct it ! Left feeling relaxed, bruised (from the cupping) and a little like they were trying to take advantage. Place was clean, and good value for money nonetheless.
