Very blessed to have been referred to Luke, I was suffering with chronic lower back and nerve pain. Luke helped relieve most of the pain with the combination of acupuncture, massage and advice on stretches and exercises. Within the first month of our sessions there was a massive improvement in my ability to walk freely and most importantly pain relief. Luke works in Sydney CBD as well as in Bondi Junction - so very convenient locations to visit and super easy to book an appointment.
Luke is very knowledgeable, attentive to your needs and goes above and beyond his duty of care to ensure that you are well taken care of. All around wonderful experience to be able to work with Luke. Highly recommend!
I wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the treatments desensitising my femoral nerve and sorting out the cramping in my leg.
It's been a few weeks since I saw you (school holidays etc.) In that time I've been pretty much symptom-free walking and very slowly introducing running again, which is feels so good after such a long time out of action.
I'll definitely be back should I have any further issues.
Thanks again for helping me turn the corner on this long term investigation — I'm so pleased we were introduced!
