came to Ele for acupuncture after recently giving birth to my first baby. I was overwhelmed with this new experience, feeling
emotionally and physically exhausted. I was hoping that acupuncture would help me regain some balance.
To my surprise
the treatment not only helped to balance my emotions, but it also released tightness and tension in my back muscles, and improved
my posture. The front of my body, which had felt heavy and collapsing due to breastfeeding, with weakening belly muscles,
somehow became lighter and more integrated with the back of my body. I felt it help to restore me to my original body shape,
before giving birth.
I was amazed to see that such tight and achy back muscles can soften and relax with Ele's
gentle treatment! What’s more, it balanced the whole body, emotions and mind. It made me feel like 'coming home
to my self'.”
