I started visiting Justine 6 weeks after an adductor tear, I was due to complete a marathon and I had spent the previous 18 weeks training for the event. One day whilst out on a training run I had to stop suddenly due to a "freezing" sensation on my right side, I knew I had a fairly serious injury.
I had numerous physiotherapy sessions which were initially beneficial as well as sports rubs, to try to accelerate the healing process but the reality was I was finding it difficult to walk, let alone run.
After the initial recovery period and physio, I found I was in a plateau situation with the healing process, where I was not getting any worse, however i was showing no sign of improvement, was still in quite significant pain, and my hopes of returning to running were far too distant for my liking being a very active person.
I found Justine was practicing locally, and called her to see if she could help. After the first session with Justine the improvement was significant and immediate. The relief mentally as well as physically that I was finally able to move forward with the healing process was immense. Justine explained I may experience a healing crisis after the first session which I did, however I was expecting this and was assured this was to be viewed in a positive way.
I visited Justine 3 times per week for 3 weeks. Justine was welcoming and her home and the room she uses for the acupuncture sessions was warm and clean. Justine also recommended I try yoga along with monthly visits to herself for injury prevention in the future, and I fully intend to do both.
There is no comparison after the three weeks I visited Justine to how I felt before, The pain is gone, I am out walk/jogging 5K's and can see a return to running in the near future. Thank You Justine for all your help, and I cannot recommend you highly enough.
