Acupuncture Marsfield

“ I have had acupuncture at Ryde Natural Health Clinic and it has saved my back. I used to take up to 8 tablets a day to relieve the pain and be able to function and now I take none. I couldn’t even walk around the shops for more than 10-15mins. I now can shop and function almost as if there is nothing wrong with my back at all. If I hadn’t tried it for myself I would not have believed it”
Mary Barbara, Marsfield
