I had severe period pain which was impacting my quality of life quite seriously. With little help from GPs, it was causing me to take time off work and I felt like I was loosing weeks at a time each month from the widespread symptoms such as cramping, headaches, sore muscles, nausea and vomiting.
I suffered for multiple years been passed around from GP to specialist without gaging any real understanding or help as to way or what to do and was recommended to take high doses of codeine each period.
Life and lemons felt like my last try at finding some release and I’m so glad I did. I previously didn’t know anything about acupuncture and was quite unsure if it would be right for me but after my initial consultation with Kimberley, I knew it was a safe place to ask for help and to be guided towards a more holistic approach to my health as a whole as I also have fibromyalgia.
To say I was hooked would be an understatement, the clinic is a beautiful and calming space that is always spotless and the perfect temperature (a win for those perpetually cold!). Kimberley from the first time we met was fantastic, taking time to fully understand my needs and making sure I felt calm, seen and heard. She explained everything she was doing and my experience was super relaxing and enjoyable.
The benefits were an almost immediate effect which include a better cycle length, much less and now manageable pain and no vomiting which is a huge change for me!
I think I knew from the first treatment that the environment was a perfect place for me but I’d say after 6 weeks I was in awe of the benefits and effects and now 6 months in I literally wouldn’t be without it. Not having to take time off work, miss out on things with friends or having to spend the whole weekend sleeping whilst I’m on my period is just shocking each month and I’m so grateful that a place like life and lemons exists.
I would and have recommended Kimberley and life and lemons and now friends and my mum sees her too, each for a wide range of issues.
I’m so grateful!
