Testimonials

"I didn't quite know how much I needed Ian's help until my treatment started a year ago. 

Ian is someone I can trust and talk to freely, he listens and pays attention to what you say, talks over what you say and challenges on certain aspects of what is discussed when needed. Ian will ask a question, like whether something has been happening, whether I have been feeling a certain way/experiencing something in particular and he will be exactly right. His approach is very much focused on encouraging you to do the best by yourself physically and mentally. 

I started for one particular purpose but to be honest I have found that I have benefited so much more widely than expected, and particularly the effects of work related stresses which I never anticipated. In that respect it's like my treatments reset and strengthen me each week. I very much thought, prior to starting treatment, that it was just the acupuncture (in the 'needles and points' sense) and never quite appreciated how holistic and diverse the treatment process is. There is much more to it than you think and encompassing personal medical history, tailored diet recommendations, lifestyle and exercise considerations - all founded in Chinese medicine, the principles of which I feel are totally relatable and make so much sense.

If you are thinking about contacting Ian, do it now - you will be glad you did!"

"After suffering a miscarriage I had been recommended Acupuncture by a friend who had been treated by Zita West,  Thankfully I came across Ian at a local clinic; who I cannot thank enough for helping us on our journey. Not only did I manage to conceive during my treatment.....I actually found it relaxing too! Thanks to Ian we now have a beautiful little girl and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."

"I’ve suffered from carpel tunnel syndrome for many years; as a carpet fitter I put my hands and wrists under great pressure every day and can’t afford to be off work. Every morning I would wake up with extreme pins and needles and locked middle fingers. Even driving a vehicle was very uncomfortable. I’ve tried many different products from wrist straps to heat creams but none really had much effect. I then tried Acupuncture with Ian.

After my first treatment I walked away with both my wrists feeling relaxed. The next morning I woke up with virtually no pins and needles and my fingers weren't in their usual clenched position. For the first time in months my hands and wrists felt relaxed with very little pain. I was stunned. The acupuncture had had an amazing result.

I continued to have regular treatment with Ian over a few weeks and have now found that I only need to see him  once or twice a month to keep my carpel tunnel at bay.

Thank you Ian.. Your a star..."

"Ian, I am so thankful for the help you gave me; the nutritional advice alone was invaluable. I would recommend your services to anyone and I have no doubt that it helped me get pregnant so a huge thank you from me and my husband!"

Becky, Farnham.

 

"Ian was recommended to me by a friend and I cannot thank him enough. In 2011 I ran my first half Marathon and did some quite serious damage to my ITB, I was under the care of the doctors and physio, but there never seemed to be any improvement and I couldn’t run above 5 miles, much to my distress.

So a friend suggested I tried something different, at the beginning of 2014 I finally did something about it and took her advice and visited Ian. I had 5 or 6 sessions and did some recommended (by Ian) at home stretches and things seemed to get better. I am pleased to say that in September 2014 I managed to run my first full Marathon and I truly believe if I hadn’t have visited Ian this would not have happened!

I now feel little to no pain/problem with my ITB and whilst I fully recommend Ian to everyone and would love to go back for more treatment, I hope my ITB is now back to normal and I don’t need to visit the clinic again. Ian is friendly, approachable, extremely professional and most importantly really knows his stuff!."

"Over the last two years I have been receiving acupuncture treatment from Ian for Crohn's disease, alongside western medicine and nutritional support. Having suffered from severe Crohn's disease for nearly 30 years, my symptoms and the management of my condition has definitely improved over the last 2 years. Ian creates a friendly and relaxed atmosphere during the treatment, and as a curious scientist I often ask questions about acupuncture and the treatment which Ian answers in a clear and professional manner. Each treatment session, and the interval between sessions, is tailored to take account my current symptoms and condition. If you feel that acupuncture may be of benefit to you then it is well worth making an appointment to see Ian."

Ian, Deepcut.

 

"Ian was recommended to me from a friend who he had helped with fertility.

I had never had acupuncture before but Ian soon put me at ease and explained the treatments fully. I have now been a patient of Ian's for just over 2 years for fertility issues. After just a few visits my cycle went to the optimum 28 days even though it had never been 28 days before. Ian continued to treat me while I had NHS treatment for fertility and also while I had IVF.

I truly believe that the acupuncture I received from Ian aided my fertility and the successful outcome of the IVF resulting in our daughter. I continued my treatment with Ian during my pregnancy to aid with a smooth natural birth which was so important to me and I believe the acupuncture contributed to this.

I really valued Ian's expertise and would make sure I never missed my monthly "me" time treatments.

Ian is able to help so much more than fertility with acupuncture and I know I benefited from my sessions with him. I found the treatment aided relaxation and my general health which is so important during IVF treatment and pregnancy. Ian is a great listener and fully understands the strains and complexities of IVF treatment and how acupuncture can assist.

I will definitely continue to use acupuncture in the future and would highly recommend Ian to you."

Mandy, Bracknell.

 

"I had acupuncture treatments with Ian just before starting our first cycle of IVF. From my first treatment he put me at ease, he had a calm and relaxing manner and made each treatment worthwhile. For me, with all of the uncertainty and "what if's" of IVF, having acupuncture gave me an extra boost and I thoroughly enjoyed each treatment.

I feel that Ian played a very important role during this time and I have no doubt that he has helped us to start our family. We are now the very proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ian and thank him very much for his help."

J, Farnham.

 

"I visited Ian after trying to conceive for almost two years. My step mother is a very well regarded acupuncturist in wales and specialises in fertility so she suggested I get treatment to assist with conception.

I searched for a local acupuncturist that dealt with fertility issues and found Ian. After less than a year of treatment, I fell pregnant naturally after doctors had told me that my best chance would be IVF and I put that down to my treatments with Ian.

I now have a beautiful and healthy baby girl and without Ian I'm not so sure we would. "

Holly, Farnham.

 

"I just wanted to say 'thank you' for my treatment for sinus pain over the last few months. The pain has really reduced and the advice in managing my diet has also helped with my symptoms.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others who may need acupuncture."

SS, Farnham.


"I found Ian through research via the Zita West network and haven't looked back. He helped me through my third round of IVF having had a very stressful few years trying to have a family. He not only helped me get through a very gruelling process but it was successful and I now have a wonderful son. I have a lot of faith in Ian's ability to truly understand his patients and more importantly care about their health and wellbeing.

I am seeing Ian again as we try to extend our family and feel his input is so important in preparing me physically and mentally for my treatment. His care and attention and flexibility are second to none and his understanding of the process means he is able to offer an empathetic approach at all times. He is also a very nice chap!"

Mrs S, Surrey. 

 

"Well maybe the results speak for themselves!?! I got pregnant with my
first attempt at IVF and believe whole heartedly that Ian's acupuncture and
dietary pointers prepared me physically and mentally so that I was in the best
possible health to receive the treatment and so that my condition
remained optimised for it to succeed. Ian is well practised in supporting women
through fertility treatment and in addition to knowing how to work his
acupuncture magic, has a bedside manner that is supportive and positive
about the IVF whilst not being all-consuming or unrealistic about it.
 
My weekly sessions were a nice time to relax and chat rather than being
another procedure to endure as part of the relentless IVF cycle.
 
Ian is flexible and understands the timing pressures of IVF. He goes to
great lengths to accommodate well timed sessions, working in
collaboration with other practitioners in different geographical areas where
required.

I returned to Ian for help after having my baby as my underlying health
issues resulted in me having a very poor milk supply. Ian was again
fantastic, knowledgeable, supportive and accommodating, acting with an
appropriate sense of urgency to get me treated and put me on the right
dietary path. Whilst my condition prevents me from achieving a
substantial milk supply, I believe that the acupuncture played its part in increasing my supply to its optimised level, which has enabled me to part breastfeed my baby and form that all important bond with him. As acupuncture focuses on health holistically, I also benefited from a post natal boost from this
treatment, rejuvenating me during this exhausting period. On this
occasion, Ian worked closely with a practitioner in the area that I was
temporarily staying over the Christmas period so that I could maintain continuity
of care through this time critical period when milk supply can come in."

"Ian was recommended to me by two family members who are also Ian's
patients. The treatment has really improved the sleeping problems I was
having and is a gentle way to approach your overall health… I really
like the fact that it looks at the whole person, rather than just the
symptom. 

Ian is very knowledgeable and gives positive advice on what
changes can be made in your lifestyle and diet so that you can help to
heal yourself. I have already recommended Ian to my friends and family."

Mrs B, Farnham



"I’d had several courses of acupuncture treatment for fertility at top London clinics prior to seeing Ian and I have found his treatment has been a revelation. The extent to which he tailors the treatment to the individual and the level of care given is quite simply the best I have had - by a long way. I would highly recommend him for fertility treatment."

Alex, Bordon



"Having tried a variety of therapies for my elevated blood pressure I was delighted when 4 treatments with Ian managed to stabilise my blood pressure and radically improve my energy and overall wellbeing.

Ian carefully considered my case and over the 4 weeks managed to make inroads into my health with a result that I feel significantly better now."

Nichole, Crondall



"I have been visiting Ian for nearly a year now and I have found his treatment invaluable. I initially went to see Ian for help with my insomnia and digestion but since having treatment I have found not only have the insomnia and digestive problems improved but my general health too.

Ian has helped me understand the underlying cause of my insomnia and without a doubt his treatment and approach to it has greatly improved my situation. I now visit Ian once a month to keep myself in check as before I started treatment I felt out of control, totally exhausted and completely run down.

Ian came recommended from a friend who praised his treatments and I am extremely grateful. I can't recommend Ian strongly enough for anyone who has a health issue. I felt that looking at the imbalances in the body is the only way forward to attain good health."

Samantha, Farnham



"I was a little apprehensive about trying acupuncture for the first time but Ian made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. Since receiving a course of treatment and regular top ups I have found it has bought me many benefits in all aspects of my health."

Alexander, Farnham



"I have been seeing  Ian Stones at the Durham House Chiropractic Clinic in East Street, Farnham for many months now, I can honestly say that the acupuncture treatment which he provides has improved my quality of life.

I have been treated for insomnia, hot flushes, for persistent tennis-elbow type pain and occasionally for severe back pain brought on by over-enthusiastic gardening and I feel that every treatment session improves my overall well-being. I would recommend it to everyone."

G, Farnham



"For three months I was suffering from several bouts of hot flushes during the day and would wake up at least three or four times during the night sweating, as I was going through the menopause. The night sweats and hot flushes also seemed to be increasing both in intensity and frequency as the weeks went by. Often I found myself lying awake at night for over an hour with my mind becoming overactive.

I am a vegetarian and eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as soya products so I have a good healthy diet. I pride myself in being a very fit 53 year old and exercise regularly. For the past few years, I have also been taking supplements including Red Clover, which contains phytoestrogens, ostensibly to reduce menopausal symptoms particularly hot flushes and night sweats.  However, that did not help. A friend suggested I drink sage tea but that didn’t help either. I resisted going to my GP as I did not want to be prescribed HRT. Finally I was recommended Ian Stones for acupuncture.

After two acupuncture sessions my symptoms had reduced considerably to a state where the flushes were less frequent and ‘warm’. The night sweats had virtually disappeared. My mind was a lot calmer and I rarely woke up at night.  After a third session of acupuncture with Ian I felt completely normal again, and have not experienced any night sweats or hot flushes since.

Ian’s treatment seems miraculous to me. He is a good listener and very professional in his whole approach. Ian is obviously highly skilful and “tunes in” to what is going on in the body. I will continue to see Ian from time to time whenever I need a ‘top up’.

I highly recommend him to any woman who wants relief from irritating, and sometimes debilitating, menopausal symptoms. Thank you so much Ian."
