After being diagnosed & suffering with vestibular migraines, I found True Fortune Acupuncture via my insurance provider. I’ve have visited Andrew for 4 treatments. He has on each occasion treated me with both Acupuncture & Tuina Massage. Each week I have seen a noticeable improvement in the frequency of my migraines. I now only get the occasional one instead of it being a frequent condition. Andrew is very clear in the way he conducts his treatment. He is approachable & professional. I have felt confident that he is knowledgeable in his field. His workplace is comfortable & welcoming. I would highly recommend Andrew to future clients.

Andrew was warm, supportive, professional and incredibly kind. I felt gently guided through each session together and I was really delighted by how quickly I saw an improvement in my symptoms. His treatment room is a lovely and relaxing space too.

I came across True Fortune Acupuncture while on the hunt for an acupuncturist that could support our fertility journey. We were going through IVF (with a failed transfer) and I had benefited from acupuncture for other health issues in the past so felt confident that the right person could help me. I felt like I was in good hands with Andrew  – he was knowledgeable in the field of acupuncture for fertility, calm, attentive and professional. He made himself available for all the crucial dates around our IVF despite the birth of his daughter,  which I really really appreciate. I should also mention that his space is an oasis of calm – my favourite part was the skylight where I could watch the birds and the clouds, and switch off during each session. I do believe the acupuncture helped with minimising any pregnancy symptoms in the first trimester and helped me manage my anxiety, giving me plenty of time to pinch myself in disbelief of my pregnancy! I really can’t thank Andrew enough and would highly recommend True Fortune Acupuncture.

I have benefitted greatly from True Fortune Acupuncture's level of service. From my initial website enquiry, I booked the complimentary initial call with Andrew where I was able to discuss some of my issues and why I was seeking acupuncture. Andrew provided a comprehensive description of what acupuncture would involve and how it might help me. He is very knowledgeable about the benefits of traditional Chinese acupuncture and has spent several years in East Asia where he has built up his fountain of knowledge. After the first session, some of my issues around getting to sleep and feeling anxious noticeably eased up which was a nice surprise. I am very confident that in time the acupuncture will provide more long-term benefits and my energy levels will return to normal. The studio is a light, calming and relaxing space which helps to promote positivity and zen. Thank you, Andrew/True Fortune Acupuncture!

Andrew has been really professional and supportive in helping me to manage my post covid fatigue. Over the seven months I’ve been having acupuncture, my energy levels have significantly improved enough that I can now return to work after a year off. I now feel my fatigue is at a manageable level and, whilst still a considerable way of my previous baseline, I can now engage in more normal activities that were previously impossible before I started attending acupuncture with Andrew.
