I have complex regional pain syndrome, which causes chronic pain and reduced mobility in my left arm and shoulder. Acupuncture is extremely effective and allows me to manage my condition without using conventional painkillers regularly. Tony has helped and supported me for many years and acupuncture makes a huge difference to how I cope with my every- day life. 

I first consulted Tony after being diagnosed with endometriosis and having suffered from severe abdominal and pelvic pain, and infertility for several years.  The surgery and hormone treatment that I’d had to remove adhesions and cysts had not helped my symptoms and because both my fallopian tubes were blocked, I had been told that IVF would likely be my only chance to conceive.

I felt pessimistic about acupuncture being able to help but with Tony’s obvious depth of knowledge and experience, I quickly felt confident in his treatments. Tony went right to the root of my condition, treating the cause of the endometriosis rather than just the symptoms and I loved his holistic approach which valued not just my physical but emotional wellbeing too.

Within only a few weeks of treatments, my cycle became more balanced and my pain reduced dramatically – I had my first ever almost pain-free period!  With ongoing acupuncture, my energy levels improved and I began to feel so much better in myself – physically and emotionally.  After a year of acupuncture treatments, I was due to begin IVF but didn’t make it to the first appointment after finding out I was pregnant!  Tony’s treatments have helped me through two successful pregnancies and now 15 years on, with my endometriosis under control, acupuncture is helping me through perimenopause.   I feel better than I have ever done, but without Tony’s treatments, I think it may have been a very different story for me.  I would recommend acupuncture to anyone.


Louise has treated me for back pain related to a prolapsed disc for several years. Her assessments are always thorough and she takes the time to explain her findings to me and can relate these to chinese and western medicine. Louise is very approachable and puts you at ease. The experience I have had have been relaxing and restorative enabling me to manage my pain and mobility more effectively than would otherwise be the case.

I have seen Louise Lipman periodically over several years for various physical and emotional symptoms I have suffered. The results of the acupuncture treatment given has been outstanding! She gets to the core of surface symptoms quickly. She is thorough in consultation and her manner is one to put you at ease instantly. Her in-depth knowledge on her subject and willingness to share it is a credit to her. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. A truly gifted therapist!

I have known Tony Orridge for more than 12 years. I visited him when I was suffering severe back pain due to a deteriorating hip joint. His treatment, incorporating massage and acupuncture, had a positive effect on my pain and I was able to survive in some comfort the waiting period for my hip operation.

Since that period I have sought treatment from Tony on a number of occasions for a variety of problems. I have found his skills and patient care to be exemplary. All treatments are carefully discussed and managed to suit the individual needs. His personal style offers great benefits too. His sound advice and reassurance ensure that patients are put at ease.  This is an important element in his care for new patients.


Louise has treated me for acid reflux, stress, insomnia and lesser conditions. She is fantastic. Very easy to discuss conditions with and insightful. I would recommend her to anyone. Give Louise and acupuncture a go

I have been a patient of Tony Orridge for approximately 15 years. During this time, he has treated me for various problems, neck and lower back pain, foot pain, stress and anxiety.

Tony is very experienced, he has a kind and caring manner which makes you feel at ease. He takes time to listen and understand your problems and fully explains and answers any concerns.

I have always found him to be knowledgeable and professional and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.


I have been having treatment with Tony over many years, initially for menstruation problems and later found it very effective too in treating menopausal symptoms – and a few other things along the way. I wouldn’t have thought of using a male practitioner, but Tony was recommended by several friends and I have no hesitation recommending him to others. Tony’s skills and knowledge (and results) are amazing! And he is perceptive, empathetic and thorough in his consultations. Tony has also treated my daughter for a number of years now, from about the age of 14. She has a needle phobia and was initially very reluctant to try acupuncture. Tony very quickly gained her trust. My daughter is happy to share personal information with him, she’s very relaxed about acupuncture now and she has found it immensely helpful in treating symptoms of chronic fatigue. All in all we think Tony is a brilliant practitioner and we’d love it if he continued practising for at least another 20 years!
