Dampness in the system is a way of expressing the symptoms of many complaints. The main symptom of dampness is fatigue and a feeling of heaviness. The feeling of heaviness in the legs going upstairs or the need to sit down to relieve the feeling of heavy fatigue. There may be a feeling of mugginess in the head, or sinus type problems or mucousy /phlegmy problems. There may be loose stools or a general feeling of "wading through treacle". Swollen and stiff joints may also be symptomatic of dampness.

I personally will always attribute Julia's treatment to be the predominant factor in my extended period of remission from Crohn's disease. Julia is both a trusted friend and therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an alternative therapy.
My aches and pains in ankles, knees, hips and lower back disappear and my energy levels are given a very good boost too! It is 45 minutes or so of relaxation in a busy schedule. She keeps up to date with modern acupuncture techniques and has recently returned from a trip to China to experience these new techniques first hand. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough
I consider myself very fortunate to have found Julia's Acupuncture Practice 2 years ago, when I decided to try acupuncture for back problems. After a few treatments the problems were solved. Since I have every confidence in Julia's ability, each treatment is a very relaxing and worthwhile experience.
