"During both acupuncture and shiatsu massage treatments, Wendy helped me to understand the toll that four recurrent losses had taken on my mind and body as I tried to conceive a second child. Her patience, kind words and gentle humour were much appreciated each week as I attempted the small changes she suggested to diet and exercise. ... I conceived for a fifth time, this time, against all the odds, our beautiful baby was born and our family is now complete."
