In 2009 I visited Ellen being referred by one of my friends. I was suffering from severe lower back pain which made me wake up at nights frequently. Physiotherapy and manual therapy and exercises didn’t help me at all. After some acupuncture treatments I felt already much better. Now I visit Ellen once every two months or if needed. My backache has now gone almost completely. What I like best is the combination of acupuncture and massage followed by using moxa. The tension and pain in my body and the stressful feeling disappears quite quickly. Last year Ellen also treated the scars from a recent operation and facilitated the healing and the flexibility of the tissues. I can strongly recommend to be treated by Ellen! She combines extensive knowledge of Chinese and Japanese acupuncture ánd her experience in physiotherapy with a positive attitude which make her treatments very effective!
