It's probably a bit unusual to actually enjoy visiting a therapist but Gemma is one of those rare people who can make you feel that she actually knows what it is like to be you. Her ability to listen to your symptoms and then apply that insight to her acupuncture treatment is, in my opinion, second to none. My experience with Gemma at the sessions has been very positive. I sought some acupuncture for the treatment of anxiety/Stress as well as insomnia, general wellbeing and back pain two years ago. Each session, along with her extremely down to earth approach and knowledge has contributed to a real decline in my general anxiety levels and an increase in my ability to sleep well. I'm so pleased with the results and I would definitely recommend this holistic treatment for anyone that suffers with similar issues. And as a side note to those who may be anxious about just receiving acupuncture, relax! It's a very calming experience!

Gemma treated me for long-term back problems I got working as a Hospital ward nurse. She has a wonderfully calm manner, is very skilled in her profession. I felt benefits after just one session, and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Emma, Bristol
I first contacted Gemma a year after having a very intrusive operation that left me with consistent pain and had a great impact on my life. I needed to find alternative medicine other than what my GP could offer as he had run out of ideas,this is when I contacted Gemma. My consultation was professional, In depth and I felt very comfortable in her presence. After two sessions I was starting to feel better, and five sessions later the issue had gone, I just wish I had been in touch sooner, but I now have my life back and for that I am very grateful.

I had some treatments from Gemma towards the end of my pregnancy for relaxation and birth preparation. The treatments were tailored to my particular needs and Gemma really listened to what my concerns were and what I was trying to achieve through visiting her. Being my first pregnancy, I had been advised to prepare for being anything up to two weeks late so  on my due date I had an induction treatment and much to my joy went into labour only one day late. Gemma had shown me some pressure points that my partner and I could use for pain relief during active labour; as it was her preparation treatment was so successful that my daughter was born in a matter of minutes without the need for any pain relief or interventions. I recommended Gemma to the other women in my antenatal class and will certainly be getting her help with any future pregnancies.

I have been attending Gemma Alexander's acupuncture clinic for over two years now and am continually amazed by all the benefits an acupuncture treatment can bring in holistic terms. I have suffered with a chronic back condition, anxiety and depression for many years. Through regular acupuncture treatment, many of my symptoms have totally dissipated and the others which I experience are much more infrequent. I trust Gemma implicitly, she appears to have an innate sense of what is needed on each individual visit and tailors the treatment accordingly. Gemma is extremely professional but balances this with her empathetic and caring nature. I couldn't recommend Gemma Alexander more highly, whether you are considering acupuncture for the first time or are looking for a new practitioner.
In a desperate attempt to cure my insomnIa and anxiety I booked an acupuncture appointment. I was very sceptical but I was amazed when my insomnia disappeared immediately, it was incredible! My anxiety was reduced after the first session as well. My anxiety reduced and confidence grew rapidly until I no longer needed to attend. Gemma is such a calming and reassuring person and the session itself was extremely relaxing. As someone scared of needles, I would have no hesitation in recommending acupuncture with her.
Sarah, Bristol
Gemma is thorough, professional and holistic in her approach to treatment. She is also friendly, approachable and warm. She provided a space for me to resolve a problem I'd had for months with love and care. The way she uses the needles is extremely caring and painless. I would recommend her to anyone.
Malika, Bristol
Very friendly and calming even for someone scared of needles like me! Would definitely recommend and use again in the future!
