“Sylvia is a lovely, thoughtful and intuitive person who makes a very careful diagnosis and prescribes a holistic treatment. The herbs she prescribed for me arrived in the post the day after my appointment and are very gentle and actually taste good! I can feel them gradually working for me already. With Chinese herbal medicine, the prescription is individual and is adjusted as you improve, dealing with every aspect of a condition until full health is restored, with no nasty or frightening side effects. I thoroughly recommend Sylvia and her online appointment service. Talking to her on Skype was almost like being in her clinic” (Catherine T. Kirkudbright, Scotland)

“I highly highly recommend Sylvia’s services, particularly for her knowledge and understanding on Chinese herbs and how they can support health. For several years I saw an acupuncturist back in Australia who also provided Chinese herbs for me each fortnight. These herbs definitely helped me in a number of ways, however there was never any improvement on my primary concern, which was regularly suffering headaches and migraines due an extreme intolerance to sugar, where even prescription pain killers would do little to ease the pain. However within a matter of weeks of seeing Sylvia online, she was able to create a formula for me that was amazing. After almost 8 years of weekly headaches and migraines, I now have so much more freedom to go about my day and not be crippled by pain in bed all day, and I owe it to Sylvia.” (Laura, Leeds)
