  • Abdominal & Stomach Pain
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    When I came to you I was in a terrible condition with a lot of pain in my abdomen and back. I have had these problems for two years. I have taken all types of tests including E.C.G and they could not determine what was wrong with me and my GP only gave me tablets to relieve the pain until I took a M.R.C.P. of the abdomen and they still found nothing. They found that there was no problem with my heart.

    The Hospital Doctor was unable to determine the problem that was causing my pain. I could not take pain-relieving tablets because it upset my stomach. So I came to the Hong Wei Chinese Medical Centre for treatment.

    Doctor Olivia treated me for the pain and it gradually decreased until I was pain free. I am very thankful for the and care that I have received.

    Yours sincerely Barbara
  • Arthritis & Low Immune System
    Dear Olivia,

    When I first went to see Olivia I had been suffering with knee pain for many years, having tried so many remedies, including three knee operations and injections.

    At the first appointment I couldn’t bear Olivia to touch my knees, but as treatments went on it became much better. The last few treatments I had I enjoyed and know now that my knees are feeling so much better.

    I am very pleased that I carried on with the treatment. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back if needed.

    Thank you Olivia

    Dear Olivia,

    I wanted to write to you to express my gratitude for all you have done for me over the past few years. When I first came to you I was having problems, continuously getting colds and flu and generally feeling run down. With your help my immune system made a full recovery.

    Since then you have resolved my various problems including my arthritic hip where you have stalled any further deterioration and with the muscle recovery in my calf after my ruptured Achilles your work has been nothing short of remarkable where all other traditional remedies failed. Like all things in life, nothing comes overnight but with patience and faith in your ability and the medicines that you have given me, I have reaped the rewards of good health and mobility.

    Olivia, you are one of the most dedicated and caring people I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

    Yours Sincerely Steven
  • Asthma
    Dear Olivia

    Well what can I say except many, many thanks for your help in making me feel well again? My Asthma is at the moment gone I feel great. When I can in to see you I had a permanent cough and very bad breathing I had trouble walking to the station in Romford and the stairs were impossibility, even the stairs in doors were too much for me. The gym was a defiantly out. My doctor put me on steroids three times in three months, plus putting my inhalers up to10 times a day I felt ok not great but I could breath and go back to the gym, and walk the stairs this lasted for about 2 weeks or less then back to the doctors for more steroids and different pumps. I felt I was getting worse.

    So my daughter recommended you to me as her husband is having treatment with you at the moment.

    You recommended acupuncture, herbs, tablets, and cough medicine. I had a course of 5 acupunctures, after the first one I felt good but by the Monday taking the herbs twice a day and tablets 3 times a day I was feeling really good, by the end of the next week I was back at the gym 3 times a week, walking became easy, stairs were a piece of cake. After having all my treatment, which took just over a month, I feel great. I feel like a new person and I owe it all to you, even my granddaughters say come on Nanny you can do it. I have also done a 5k walk in aid of breast cancer felt absolutely great at the end could have done it all again.

    Will see you again in the winter. Thanks Again Carol
  • Back Pain
    Dear Olivia,

    I am writing to thank you for your help and treatment. After many months of severe back pain, and trying many other form of treatment before making an appointment with you, I am now pain free.

    As you said it takes time, and I notices a significant improvement from around the 6th session, and then improvement was swift. The warm and friendly atmosphere or your clinic also helped to put me at ease and I wouldn't hesitate to make you my first stop should I need treatment in the future.

    Many thanks Bernice
    Dear Olivia,


    Having heard how much Olivia has helped my dad, I went to see her regarding a back problem.

    Soon after starting acupuncture sessions and herbal medicine, I noticed a significant improvement in my level of back pain, but this was not the only benefit I experienced!

    Olivia takes a very holistic approach, so she also asked me about my health in general and about my mood and stress levels. Within just a few treatments I noticed that as well as feeling better in terms of pain, I also had more energy and I felt less stressed and generally happier.

    As well as providing excellent treatment, I also appreciate Olivia’s caring attitude, her friendliness and the “feel good factor” she gives during treatments.

  • Bells Palsey
    Dear Olivia,

    On February 15th, I awoke to find that I had lost the use of one side of my face. Fearing that I had suffered a stroke, I went to my Doctor who informed me that I had “Bells Palsey”. He also told me that there was no cure and that in time the nerves would return to normal. After speaking to different people and going on the internet for information the only advice was to keep my face warm and massage it – this could take up to 18 months.

    I could not eat or drink normally, both of which fall out of my mouth, my right eye would not close and I had to manually blink my eye which would stream with tears down my face although the eye was dry. My right nostril would run, but I could not feel it. In all I was a mess.

    Someone recommended Acupuncture. I had read and heard about it but was sceptical. However, because of my situation I was willing to try anything. I started three weeks of treatment on the 20th February, every other day. After two weeks my face was 50% better and following another week I was 95% back to normal. The herbs are not nice, but it seems to work. I could not believe the progress I made in such a short time, neither could my Doctor who has put this information onto his computer for future sufferers.

    I would not hesitate in using acupuncture again for whatever reason. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for curing me and putting me at ease. You and your medicine are wonderful.

    With kind regards Beryl
  • COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
    Dear Olivia,

    I am a 77 year old man and a resident of Hornchurch for the past 10 years and have been suffering deteriorating health conditions despite efforts from my local GP and practice nurse to improve my breathing difficulties due to COPD. During this time I also suffered a number of other health problems such as Phlebitis, Pleurisy, Shingles and more recently with an ulcerated tongue. In other words I did not have a feeling of well being. This caused me to feel depressed. Due to my COPD I get breathless very quickly and this condition has deteriorated over the past 5/6 years and my general health had gone downhill during this period. I was playing 5-a-side football at the beginning of this period and now I find myself with A Blue Badge and my GP at a loss to come to terms with my dilemma.
    This problem relates directly to the effect that smoking has had on my lungs. I was talking to my daughter recently explaining how unwell I felt and she, in passing suggested that I perhaps try alternative medication such as visiting a Nutritionist or the Chinese Medical Centre in the High Street. I have to say that it never occurred to me to go down this route and have never been a believer of such alternative medicine including the use of acupuncture or herbal therapy to improve my health. However, I felt a desperate need to improve my health and called in at the Chinese Medical Centre.

    It also made me realise how unwell I have been for years without knowing it. My experience of Chinese medication started in late October 2010 and it is a decision that I will never ever forget. During my first visit to Hong Wei, Olivia asked me to fill out a form and then proceeded to ask many questions about the problems of my health. After explaining my circumstances, I asked her if she could help me and she replied in the affirmative but emphasised that she couldn’t cure my COPD as my lungs had suffered permanent damage. She did however comment on a number of ways that she could help me to make my life better but again emphasised that it would take time, if I gave her a chance.

    It is now just over one year since I first started treatment at the Chinese Medical Centre during which time I have returned for various reasons to keep my health and well being in sound condition. I do this now as a matter of course when I feel that I my health is beginning to deteriorate. This ensures that my health and wellbeing are maintained at the highest possible level.

    I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending The Hong Wei Chinese Medical Centre to anyone who is suffering poor health or even feels that they could do with someone to help them improve their wellbeing. For sure, you are bound to receive a professional but warm and friendly welcome from Olivia. All of my family and friends are now constantly telling me how well I look and that I don’t look my age. This is all down to Olivia and I am truly thankful to her for my current state of health and well being.

    Kind regards David S.
  • Depression
    To all Clients of Hong Wei

    At the beginning of January 2008 my world crashed in, I had a serve panic attack. Shaking, hot flushes, it took over my life. I had the support of my girls, and my partner, it was awful for him, he just didn't know how to deal with me, we would talk and he would listen. Which helped! I went to the Doctors; all they gave were drugs and counselling. At the time of writing, in March, I'm still waiting to hear about the counselling! I was in the most awful state, crying, not eating, sick, anxious, I was very tired, it was very hard to do all the normal things.

    Depression takes all your energy and thoughts. I would cry mostly in the morning, always for me the worst time of the day, because the thought of actually making through the day was too much. I was really at the bottom. No good going back to the Doc's! I have suffered this way before. Twenty years ago. Things were different then. I was scared at the thought I would go in to hospital as I did twenty years ago, which had been a most awful and frightening experience.

    One morning, three weeks ago, for some reason I thought of Acupuncture. I looked in yellow pages, and found Hong Wei and Olivia. I didn't know at the time but Olivia was to be my lifeline she saved me. She was the only person who could help me, with Chinese Therapy. You have to be patient as it doesn't work immediately. I have been going for 4 weeks now and I feel so much better. I still have a way to go. Olivia is an incredible lady, she talks to you, listens and understands,

    She loves it when you start to feel better, Olivia is a genius, she's very conscious about her work, I love going to see her, I will continue to see her and have the therapy it's so good. Olivia is dedicated to her people. As you start to feel better it's the most wonderful feeling to get your life back, I have Olivia to thank for that.

  • Dermatitis
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    Just a few lines to express my deepest thanks for the treatment that you prescribed for me over the past few weeks for a serious skin problem that I developed following surgery for bowel cancer. After trying conventional methods and various creams for fifteen months without hardly any improvement, I had almost given up hope of ever getting back to normal.

    About eight weeks ago and as a last resort, I decided to see you for a consultation and following your advice and treatment my skin started to show signs of improvement almost immediately. Today I feel almost back to normal, so please carry on the good work.

    Thank you once again. Yours sincerely, Mr R.D.P.
  • Epididymitis
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    I am a local resident. Having had a problem with an area around my private regions (for 10/12 years) I decided to try this herbal treatment. After three weeks of herbs and acupuncture I feel so much better although my treatment is not short term due to the length of time having it. Conventional medicine/specialists did not seem to have any answers.

    Doctor Olivia was very kind and understanding and knew the problem and how to treat it.

    Thank you Doctor Olivia Mr X
  • Eczema
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    Thank you for helping me heal my eczema. I have been suffering this skin problem ever since I was born and now, thanks to you it’s almost completely gone. Before I came to see you, I was seeing another Doctor on the other side of London. I took her medication for about three months and didn’t see any improvement to my skin problem.

    After applying the cream, drinking the herbs and soaking my skin in the herbal wash that you prescribed I have already begun to see improvements in just three days. Wow!! I thought it was a miracle and quite amazing.

    All my life I have been using steroids and there never appeared to be any changes in my skin condition, which stayed the same and made me feel very unhappy. I also found out that the steroids I had been using for over twelve years were not good for the skin tissues as they harden them. So once again I would like to thank you for helping me.

    Natalie


    Dear Olivia,

    I am writing to you to thank you for your treatment which has helped my hand and arm eczema, I have suffered with eczema for the last five years and have tried lots of alternative remedies/treatments. When I came to you five week ago my hands and arms were very sore and itchy. After acupuncture, herbs and cream I could not believe the difference in just three/four days. Now five weeks on my eczema has cleared. Thank you again Olivia for making mw feel at ease with your kind and friendly manner,

    Yours Gillian.
  • Frozen shoulder
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    In January 2008 I was diagnosed with a frozen shoulder and had to wait for over a month for physio treatment on the NHS, so I decided to try acupuncture to relieve the symptoms.

    Olivia you were so friendly and helpful and I had thirteen sessions of acupuncture and massage. These helped to increase the movement in my arm considerably and I will now continue with the exercises that you recommended.

  • Hay Fever
    Dear Olivia,

    Thank you so much for your help!

    I came to you after my back had seized up at work (school nursery). My back, hips and legs felt like they were cramping constantly. You’ve given me acupuncture and cupping and it has been such a relief to finally be able to lift my legs (rather than drag them!). Coming to you daily is something I would highly recommend to anyone who is unfortunate to be in a similar situation to me. I’ve never felt so low, but once you worked your magic I felt like I could smile again!

    Also when I came in my hay fever was terrible, within a few minutes from having the needles, my nose became clear ..... unbelievable!

    Thanks so much, for most of all helping, but also for being a very friendly and understanding lady.

    Best wishes

  • Heel Pain
    Dear Olivia,

    I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis by my GP about six months ago. I had been suffering from increasing foot and heel pain for quite some time. The GP gave me exercises to carry out each day to help relieve the pain and suggested anti-inflammatory drugs when the pain worsened. The pain was at its height first thing in the morning, after sitting and at the end of a day’s work.

    Unfortunately the pain was increasing rather than getting less and that was when I consulted Olivia at Hong Wei Chinese Medicine Centre in Hornchurch.

    After an in-depth initial consultation, Olivia agreed to treat my condition with a combination of acupuncture, massage with herbal oil and herbal extracts taken orally.

    After the first treatment I felt a marked improvement and a dramatic reduction in the awful pain I had been experiencing. In total I had a course of five sessions and I am delighted to say the condition is greatly improved.

    Thank you to Olivia for her professional, yet understanding, approach and, of course, for treating what had become a most debilitating condition. I would recommend this course of treatment if you are suffering from plantar fasciitis. It certainly worked well for me!

  • High Blood Pressure and Fatigue
    Dear Olivia,

    Before I started acupuncture and herbal medicine, I had head aches, high blood pressure, fatigue and stiff painful joints due to a little bit of arthritis. After ten sessions of acupuncture, I now have very little pain and no stiffness. I no longer feel tired and since having herbal medicine I haven’t had any problems with blood pressure.

    Olivia, thank you very much. Without your treatment I could not have continued with all my daily tasks.
  • Immune System
    Dear Olivia,

    I don’t even know how to start to thank you for the results you have achieved for me. You have been treating me since February 2011 for a very poor immune system and lack of energy.

    After a bone marrow biopsy on October 2012 the hospital confirmed your diagnosis, telling me I had leukaemia and probably wouldn’t live to see in the New Year 2013. At 69 years old I was too old for treatment. However, test results today prove that your treatment, together with acupuncture and herbs, has reduced the cancer in my blood by 33.3%. Now that’s a result.

    The hospital says “keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working”.

    So many, many thanks for everything.

    Kind regards.

  • Infertility
    Dear Olivia,

    I just wanted to thank you so much for your help with my IVF journey. I came to you before starting my IVF cycle and immediately felt very at ease and relaxed during all my acupuncture treatments. Not only were you exceptionally warm and friendly, but easy to talk to, with very reasonable prices and I cannot recommend you enough. You were always encouraging and hopeful, which helped a great deal (any women who has been through fertility struggles will know it’s hard to be optimistic, but you gave me hope). This was my second round of IVF after the first failed, but the first time I had ever been to you for acupuncture, and now I have two days to go until my boy/girl twins will be delivered!

    I’m so happy I found you and would definitely tell anyone else in a similar situation I found myself in about your services. I’ll pop in soon with the babies to meet you.

    Thanks again for everything.

    Dear Olivia,

    On deciding that I wanted to have a baby at 30, I stopped the pill and expected my periods to return to normal and everything to happy fairly quickly. It didn’t! So I went to the doctors and had several investigative procedures.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS and subsequently had an operation to remove cysts from my ovaries. The operation went wrong and my womb was perforated. Unfortunately the perforation did not heal correctly, making pregnancy very difficult to achieve! I had to have several treatments in hospital, all of which failed to end in pregnancy.

    I read online that acupuncture can help so I rang several places in Hornchurch. I contacted Hong Wei and immediately knew that was where I would end up having my treatment.

    Olivia was informative, friendly and honest, so I began treatment straight away. I only had one morning off work each week, which meant I needed treatment on that day at the same time. Olivia went out of her way to accommodate me, nothing was too much trouble.

    After three courses of acupuncture I became pregnant naturally. I believe that the acupuncture helped me to de-stress and balance the hormones in my body. I went on to have a great pregnancy and gave birth to a very healthy baby girl weighing 7 lbs 10 oz, whom I called “Olivia”. She is now almost seven months and is into everything.

    Having acupuncture and meeting Olivia was a truly wonderful experience that I will never forget.

    Debbie
    Dear Olivia,

    Been meaning to write to you but just been so busy being a mum. I have sent so many of my friends your way I hope they remembered to mention I had sent them.

    Just wanted to say thank you so much, firstly for curing me of my nightmare migraines which I had suffered with for so long and that never got better no matter how many different specialists tried different interventions. Within a week of coming to you my migraines were gone and have remained at bay since. Absolute bliss. That is the reason why when we had fertility difficulties, I came to you. Although it was unfortunate that we required IVF in order to conceive, I am glad that I saw you throughout my ICF cycle. I had a very easy and relaxed cycle, with no side effects (which I was really expecting), got great quality eggs and embryos and most important got pregnant on our first ever cycle. We are now blessed and happy parents to a healthy, precious baby girl. Thank you so much. I tell all my friends that you are now my “go to person” for all conditions because I know I am almost assured I will be healed. Thank you so much and keep up the great work.

    Dear Olivia,

    My husband and I had been trying for three years to have a baby and it was in August 2012 that our dreams finally came true. After my first cycle, I was pregnant. Sadly in the November of 2012 I suffered a miscarriage. We were both left devastated; however, we both picked ourselves up and in March 2013 were trying a new cycle of IVF using our one-and-only frozen embryo. This cycle was unsuccessful. It was after this cycle that I started to not feel myself and by the summer of 2013 I was signed off work with acute anxiety and was unable to leave the house or to go into work. I was prescribed antidepressants and it was at this point that I decided to seek help to deal with the pressures that trying for a much-wanted baby had put on both my emotions and my body; it was then that I sought help at Hong Wei Chinese Medical Centre and met Olivia.

    I first started to see Olivia in August of 2013 and I never looked back. Initially I discussed with Olivia my anxiety and how I really didn’t want to be taking antidepressants. Within weeks I was off the antidepressants and enjoying a session of acupuncture with Olivia once a week. The benefits I felt from the acupuncture, the herbs I was also taking each week and seeing Olivia far outweighed any benefits I felt from the antidepressants. I felt completed re-energised, relaxed and positive after each session of acupuncture. Olivia’s gentle and friendly approach to each session complimented the acupuncture perfectly.

    After getting my life back and returning to work, I started to discuss other health issues with Olivia. These ranged from issues with my periods to issues with digestion and session by session I started to feel the benefits of acupuncture, and the herbs I was using in conjunction with the treatment, in all aspects of my life.

    After seeing Olivia every week for eight months I felt stronger, both emotionally and physically, than I had done in years. It was March 2014 that I finally started a new cycle of IVF. Throughout the whole of the treatment I saw Olivia every week. The acupuncture helped initially with all of the side effects felt from the drugs used in IVF. Finally, during the agonising wait between the egg collection and implantation I saw Olivia every day. I felt this not only helped me to relax and remain positive, but helped my body prepare for the implantation of the embryo. I felt I was doing everything I could to make my body ready.

    Amazingly nine months later, our dreams finally came true and in February 2015 we were holding our beautiful, miracle baby boy in our arms. He is the most precious thing in the world to us and I cannot thank Olivia enough for helping us with his arrival into our lives. If it wasn’t for Olivia and the amazing feeling and benefits I felt from both acupuncture and the herbs, he might not be here. Our life and our family are now complete. Our journey to get there was tough, but I learnt so many things about myself and my body during this journey that will benefit me for the rest of my life.

    Thank you Olivia for everything.

    Louise Matthews
    Dear Olivia,

    I would like to personally thank you in this card for everything you helped me with in achieving my dream. I always felt amazing after every session of acupuncture. Not only was this because of the acupuncture but also because of the support and encouragement you gave me in what I was trying to achieve your positivity was infectious.

    I learnt so much about myself and my body through acupuncture and would really love to re-visit it sometime in the future.

    Thanks again, Olivia, you are a very gifted and kind person.

    Louise
    Dear Olivia,

    We wanted to write to say a huge thank you for not only fixing my body but also for being someone that I could confide in when feeling low. After trying for a baby for so long and being told we may not fall naturally due to my PCOS and my husband having high levels of abnormal shaped sperm. Holding our baby in our arms seems a long way off.
    Unfortunately, this also came with horrid drugs, an operation and lots of expense. Any couple in our situation would do anything to reach their goal but we knew it would be a very long and emotional road. The first thing I needed was to have regular periods that due to my condition they were almost non-existent or I would continually bleed for weeks. After drinking the herbs, taking the tablets and the acupuncture that you prescribed for one month my periods were more regular and other medical problems started to improve.

    Six months down the line and just as we were going to start IVF we found out that I was pregnant. We were so amazed that it had happened naturally. We are both convinced that your support and treatment had a real impact on me falling pregnant, without needing IVF. I have recommended your treatment to a lot of people but would recommend this to those trying to fall pregnant as the treatment also treat your emotional state. The herbal drinks are horrid but are stronger than the tablets. I would suggest that others in my place be brave and drink up! I will always seek herbal treatments now when I am ill and hardly ever see the need to visit my GP. Olivia, you are a very special person and our son Caleb will always know that it was you help that made it possible for Mummy and Daddy to bring him into this world.

    Thank you! All our love Annelisa, Craig and Caleb
  • Migraine, Weight Loss & Menopause
    Dear Olivia,

    I would like to thank you for the amazing treatment you have given me. I came to you in 2006 with severe migraines, I had tried every intervention that was possible and they were worsening instead of improving. It had reached a point where I was completely debilitated for over a week and this was occurring at least once a month. You completely cured these severe migraines within 3 months and I have never experienced once since. You also cured my lower back pain and I have not had any problems since this. This was particularly impressive as I recently carried non-identical twins to 36 weeks. More recently you have also greatly helped me with the recovery from this birth and pregnancy. I had not lost any weight in 10 weeks following the birth of my boys and after returning to see you for just 2 weeks I lost 6 pounds in weight. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me and for improving my quality of life more than I can express. My advice to others considering or having treatment with you is to listen to what you say, take the tablets and trust that it really works.

    Thanks again Olivia, Vikki.
    Dear Olivia,

    I have suffered for years with migraine and headaches despite the fact that I have been back and forth to my GP who has prescribed various medications, none of which appeared to work. About a year ago my migraine became more severe and frequent and I started having menopausal symptoms. In desperation I called into your medical centre for help.

    With a combination of tablets and weekly acupuncture my migraine started to quickly disappear and I am now relieved and thrilled to say that my menopausal symptoms have diminished, all thanks to you Olivia who is so caring, understanding and dedicated to her profession. I would therefore definitely highly recommend Olivia’s treatments.
    Claire
    Dear Olivia,

    I have found since coming to your clinic that the problem I had in trying to lose weight has eased due to your understanding of herbs and acupuncture. I have lost a stone-and-a-half in six weeks with no exercising as my job makes it hard to work off the weight.

    I would and have recommended you to everybody with any problems that can be cured by alternative medicines at their disposal. I know and trust that you will do your utmost to erase most problems that traditional methods find hard or impossible to cure.

    Yours faithfully Mr G.L.C.

  • Neuralgia
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    Thank you for the treatments for neuralgia which reduced the acute pain that I was suffering in the left side of my face. Prior to my first treatment, I was taking a maximum dose of Ibuprofen every eight hours. The pain gradually decreased and at the present time is negligible, just a twinge form time to time.
    Thank you again Don


    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    Thank you so much for curing me of the pain I was having from Neuralgia, it had been slowly getting worse over the past four months but the last two weeks have been so severe that I have not been able to sleep. After numerous visits to the dentist, I was finally diagnosed with this complaint and told to take painkillers.

    Over the last four months the pain steadily worsened and the painkillers seemed to have no effect. After I visited you, the pain was decreased by 80% and I could at last sleep again and after a further four treatments I am totally free of pain.

    Many, many thanks Brenda
  • Neurological Problems
    Dear Olivia,

    I went to see Olivia because I was having trouble with my right hand and wrist. After having numerous scans, tests and consultations through my private health care cover, I had begun to lose hope of making a full recovery.

    The tests revealed I had an overactive nerve in my wrist, caused by overuse. I was left with a burning sensation, very alike to sunburn, and a feeling that my hand was stretched and swollen, although it appeared fairly normal. After three months of contradictory advice from specialists and physios I turned, sceptically, to acupuncture.

    I can’t articulate how positive the experience was for me. After each session my discomfort was lessened, the burning sensation began to ease and my hand started to return to normal. I don’t doubt that Olivia’s skill, knowledge and personable nature accelerated my recovery tenfold.

    I couldn’t recommend Olivia enough.

  • OsteoArthritis
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    My husband and I suffer from Osteo-Arthritis, both us have problems with our left knee. I have had two arthroscopy operations (4 and 10 years ago) and my husband has had one operation two years ago.

    My husband experienced immediate relief after his first session of acupuncture and was able to walk quickly without limping for the first time in years.

    My relief was slower probably due to the more advanced problems of my condition. Nobody can give a guarantee of success, whether being treated by conventional or alternative methods. We can only rely on our successful outcomes.

    Sincerely yours, Mr and Mrs B
  • Palpitations & Headache
    Dear Olivia,

    I wanted to take the opportunity to write and thank you for all the help you gave both my Mum and myself recently. For myself, I came to you before Christmas and was suffering heart palpitations due to stress and anxiety. After my consultation you prescribed a course of herbal medicines along with acupuncture and massage sessions.

    Within a couple of visits to you the palpitations had slowed, by the time I completed my 6 sessions had entirely stopped and to date have not returned. Mum came to you suffering from extremely painful headaches, over-the-counter headache tablets had not helped her at all but after having combined treatments of acupuncture and head massages the headaches gradually reduced and eventually she was pain free.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family and should I ever find myself feeling the stress and strains again would certainly return, safe in the knowledge you would be able to help. You are an extremely kind and generous person who always has time to listen. I especially would like to thank you for taking time to keep in contact with Mum while I was away on holiday, a personal touch that was much appreciated.

    Kindest regards Lynn (& Bette)
  • Psoriasis, Acne & Hair Loss
    Dear Olivia,

    Many heartfelt thanks to all at the Hong Wei Centre for curing me of at least three aggressive bouts of eczema and psoriasis in the last nine years and also for treating my eczema, psoriasis, migraine, acne and hair loss. In my teens, having eczema on my face left me feeling depressed and repulsive; it was the worst thing in my life. I would look in the mirror and think “why me” it was so upsetting for my family and me. Conventional medicine did not work it only prolonged my suffering.

    Visiting your clinic was my one and only last hope because in a relatively short period of time I had completely cleared the bad skin from all affected areas – a miracle! Years later panic set in when I was diagnosed with psoriasis on the back of my neck and scalp. I did my research and was less optimistic about being cured. I thought that the best that I could do was manage the flaking skin condition but within two weeks it had completely gone. I cannot sing your praises enough, the whole family wants to thank you and support you one hundred percent.
    Love and best wishes. Mahtab, Shireen, Hajera, Tahera, Raiyan.
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    I would like to thank you and your wonderful “Chinese Medicine” for clearing up my skin problems. I have suffered with psoriasis for many, many years, some worse than others. Since coming to you in January this year – you have not only helped it but cleared it totally for me. The herbal medicine, which you have to cook before drinking, is a horrible taste – and yes it is so easy to not continue with it after the first cupful – BUT the benefits of continuing are far greater than stopping. I cooked and drank the herbs for 4 weeks before you put me onto the herbal tablets and I am so pleased that I continued to do this daily because even within this short time my skin was so much better.

    The redness of my skin and the awful constant itchiness was so much less this time. It’s now April and my skin is so clear, the redness has gone and I no longer sit scratching myself! I feel so much better in myself and so much happier that I no longer have to hide the parts of my body that had psoriasis. Thank you so much Olivia for the constant encouragement that you gave me and my advice to any of your patients who need the help of your wonderful herbs is “Don’t ever give up – continue to drink the herbs” I am a perfect example of years of suffering but today my skin is so “normal”.

    Thank you, Teresa
    Dear Olivia,

    Olivia has been treating psoriasis on my legs for about seven months.

    She started with various tablets which helped quite a lot, then a combination of tablets and acupuncture.

    I am amazed at the results, especially as various creams from my GP seemed to make the itching worse.

    The skin on my legs is almost back to normal and I am no longer embarrassed.

    It does take time and patience, but it works.

    Thank you Olivia.

  • Sciatica
    Dear Olivia,

    Dear Olivia,

    Firstly I would like to thank you so much for enabling me to be virtually pain free after nearly five years of back and leg pain. I know Sciatica is not curable but I am now able to cope with the slight pain thanks to your expertise.

    I was sceptical at first to be honest, but after my second treatment of Acupuncture and Cupping I was converted. I am still taking the tablets you gave me which I feel have improved my blood circulation, and the Oil to rub into my knee is a miracle, I have bought some for my parents and my husband is now using it!!! I have told all my friends and family about you, and also posted a comment on my social networking site. I look forward to our weekly meetings, thank you again so much.

    With best regards, Jackie


    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    I am more than grateful for the treatment and care that you gave me for the last few weeks. When I came to your clinic after months in pain with sciatica on my right hip, both my legs and feet were swollen with water retention.

    Olivia, I want to thank you again for your treatment and care, I honestly feel years younger. So good luck and God bless you for the future

    Yours sincerely Mrs P

    Dear Olivia,
    Thank you so much for your help!

    I came to you after my back had seized up at work (school nursery). My back, hips and legs felt like they were cramping constantly. You’ve given me acupuncture and cupping and it has been such a relief to finally be able to lift my legs (rather than drag them!). Coming to you daily is something I would highly recommend to anyone who is unfortunate to be in a similar situation to me. I’ve never felt so low, but once you worked your magic I felt like I could smile again!

    Also when I came in my hay fever was terrible, within a few minutes from having the needles, my nose became clear ..... unbelievable!

    Thanks so much, for most of all helping, but also for being a very friendly and understanding lady.

    Best wishes

  • Shoulder Pain
    Dear Olivia,

    I was listening to Billy speak with his sister yesterday and it prompted me to write this letter of thanks to you. Billy had just finished a two hour training session and he was joyfully explaining to Kariena that six weeks ago he couldn’t even attempt to swim for a minute, as every stroke in the water crippled his shoulders.

    His pain was so severe that he couldn’t even swim without his arms, using his legs only. Our family have great respect for you and the progress that you have made with Billy. We have followed your advice “to the letter” and it has paid off. This is Billy’s second week back at training and he is feeling stronger by the day.

    We thought his dream of representing the country in the 2112 Olympics was shattered but his dream has only just begun.

    Kindest regards Denise, Ern, Billy and Kariena
  • Sinuses
    Dear Olivia,

    I wanted to write to you to thank you for the help you gave me for my sinuses. After a horrible cold two years ago, I was left struggling to breath through my nose. Nearly all the time it felt completely blocked on both sides. At nighttime my nose always became blocked, so sleeping was really difficult because it is not natural for me to breathe through my mouth. I almost lost my sense of smell and taste.

    Since then I have needed to use sinus spray several times a day. Sometimes I would go out and forget my spray, my nose would quickly become blocked and my time out would be ruined because of this with headaches, eventually making me go home. Then one evening I watched a program about acupuncture and it inspired me to try it. I chose Hong Wei Chinese Medical Centre because I had seen it whilst at Hornchurch, I knew that I could park easily and that the centre had been there for many years. I telephoned them and spoke to Olivia and on that one phone call; I already decided that she seemed really nice and caring. I was right. I had several sessions of acupuncture, which isn’t painful along with cupping which was my favourite procedure. I was also prescribed herbs.

    Olivia is very friendly and caring. I felt she made it her mission to cure me and that she would not be happy until she achieved this outcome. Well, thank you Olivia you succeeded. My nose is now clear and I do not need to use the spray any more. My headaches have also gone.

    In my opinion, trust Olivia in her advice, her acupuncture and the herbs that she prescribes. It worked for me and I would not hesitate to go back with any future ailments.

  • Snoring
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    Thank you so much for the treatment for my snoring. It was so bad that my partner was in despair. After only a few sessions of acupuncture and herbal tablets my snoring has all but disappeared.

  • Stress
    Dear Doctor Olivia.

    Having heard how much Olivia has helped my dad, I went to see her regarding a back problem.

    Soon after starting acupuncture sessions and herbal medicine, I noticed a significant improvement in my level of back pain, but this was not the only benefit I experienced!

    Olivia takes a very holistic approach, so she also asked me about my health in general and about my mood and stress levels. Within just a few treatments I noticed that as well as feeling better in terms of pain, I also had more energy and I felt less stressed and generally happier.

    As well as providing excellent treatment, I also appreciate Olivia’s caring attitude, her friendliness and the “feel good factor” she gives during treatments.

  • Swine Flu
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    Two months ago my GP told me that I had Swine Flu. I had a very high temperature for three days and had to stay in bed. Then I got this terrible headache where I could hardly open my eyes. This continued for about three weeks, I felt so tired all the time and needed to sleep which meant that I couldn’t continue my normal life.

    I went back to my GP who said that it wasn’t possible that I could still have the virus and thought of Olivia who had helped me before in many ways and knew that I must go to her for help. Immediately she said that I still had the virus within me and could help me. Olivia prescribed acupuncture, herbs and tablets, as I was so unwell. Now three weeks later, I have more energy and not feeling so tired and starting to feel that I can get back to my old life again. I will continue with my treatment with Olivia until I feel completely well and stronger than ever.

    I have full trust in this lovely lady, she is a true Doctor and healer.

    With thanks Jeanne
  • Swollen Hands
    Dear Doctor Olivia.

    Thank you for the wonderful treatment I received from you in respect of the very bad swelling in my hands and also the clots in my left leg. The acupuncture, massage and medicine were a great help in relieving the pain. Also your charm and politeness completely put me at ease.

    I shall not hesitate to highly recommend you and your services to everyone I meet. I wish you and your family every success for the future.

    Best Wishes, Yours sincerely Jean
  • Tennis Elbow
    Dear Doctor Olivia,

    Thank you for your help. I have had five treatments over the past five weeks and there has been a significant improvement in my Tennis Elbow. I will be returning for some more treatments in the next few weeks and hopefully that will resolve almost completely.
