"I would highly recommend using Ferda for fertility acupuncture. She is very warm and friendly. She’s also very understanding and calming. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, she’s just amazing."  Stephanie P.

"Started acupuncture with Ferda when I was going through pregnancy complications and found it to be an amazing comfort. I was lucky enough to overcome the pregnancy issues and I definitely believe Ferda contributed towards this. Thank you Ferda, couldn’t recommend her services enough". Terri C. H.

"I came to Ferda hoping acupuncture could help with my fertility. She was indispensable to our “journey”, she really took care of me and personalised treatments to my cycle. I am now pregnant, expecting in January and couldn’t have done it without Ferda’s acupuncture, attentive nature and endless support - so would totally recommend!" Karen C.

"I brought my 15 year old daughter, who had paralysis on the right side of her face (due to Bells Palsy) for acupuncture with Ferda. She made every effort to fit her in as soon as possible, and after 2 sessions my daughters face had returned to normal. Ferda is such a kind, professional and wonderful person, we feel so grateful to have found her. Highly recommend to anyone. Thank you so much Ferda " Helen H.K.
