“I have to tell you about a treatment I had last week that has made a great difference to my skin’.
“Last year I had a course of facial acupuncture at Paul’s clinic which left my skin looking brighter and smoother. The treatment itself is very relaxing and is of benefit to the whole body not just the face. After a treatment I feel calm but also energised’.
