Testimonials for Julia Bletcher
Julia provided excellent support during my Pregnancy
I just want to say a huge thank you to Julia for all your excellent care and support throughout my pregnancy, both Ed and I really appreciated it. When I first came to you for treatment I was beginning to doubt that I would ever be lucky enough to have a successful pregnancy. You were positive, encouraging and reassuring that you made me feel more confident straightaway. Every time i came to you for a treatment, I would leave feeling relaxed and I always enjoyed out chats and appreciate all your excellent advice.
I am so grateful to you for the part you played in the safe arrival of Evie. We are so happy to have her here. No I just have to learn how to be a mum and to stay calm!So don’t be surprised if I call on your excellent acupuncture skills again sometime soon!
With love and thanks,
Ellie and Ed and Evie x
