I love visiting Victoria. A very understanding and caring lady. I look forward to my weekly session and always leave feeling better than when I went in. Highly recommend you to try for yourselves.

I have noticed a huge improvement in my sinus problems and a reduction in the frequency of migraines since I started seeing Victoria. She makes me feel so at ease and relaxed, I actually look forward to going there.

I visited Dr.Zhang hoping for help to cope with a hiatus hernia which was causing me pain and discomfort . My GP had prescribed various medications which had not helped..I had had acupuncture before. with a back problem, so I thought I would give it a try for this problem. After several sessions of acupuncture,massage,and herbal treatments the condition improved and continues to do so. At this time I was feeling 'low' and stressed due to a bereavement and my sessions with Dr.Zhang helped me to relax, and become less stressed and anxious. The holistic approach(TCM) to our bodies and our wellbeing has helped me to feel fitter and active. Thanks Dr. Z

I have been suffering from severe calf pain which meant i could not walk more than 100 yards without having to stop.After extensive tests with the NHS no problem was found. I went to see Dr Zhang without a great deal of hope but how wrong was i !! After 3 sessions of accupuncture i could walk a mile without too much pain and after another few sessions i am able to walk as far as i like.I cannot recommend Dr Zhang highly enough she has changed my life.

I am so delighted to have found Mr. Jay at Taunton Chiropractic clinic he has helped me with my aching back. I was in so much pain and couldn't enjoy lovely walks with my dog. After a few visits to Tim I now feel positive and nimble...hopping over styles from field to field and no more nagging pain in my lower lumbar holding up my days! My friend has just started having appointments with Jo another chiropractor at the clinic, she is so kind and knowledgeable and gives hope for aging bodies! Also, just discovered Tony the visiting Sports masseuse he is excellent at releasing one's endorphins. The receptionists are a friendly joy and rearranging appointments is never a problem. Free car parking in abundance (so much more convenient rather than venturing into town) with the added benefit of a lift once in the building to the clinic if you are struggling to climb stairs. Thank you so much :)

Very friendly and professional staff. Sorted out my lower back and neck pain. Excellent. Highly recommend this practice. Joanne is awesome can not recommended her and the team enough. Excellent location right on the edge of Taunton. Plenty of free parking too which is just an added bonus. Thanks guys.
