I must thank you Sachie for all your help and kindness to me with my chronic insomnia.
Pleased to say I'm doing well.
Having had an active and physical life through sport and my career as a builder, I have suffered many aches, pains, and injuries. My self-treatment was 'more hard work' and an acceptance of my pain as part of life. In mid 2013 I injured my back in a fall while mountain climbing. Time off work, doctors visits and physio did not alleviate the pain, so I turned to the internet for alternative treatment and decided to contact Sachie's acupuncture practice. After the first visit I noticed a reduction in pain, and after four visits there was no discomfort at all. Not only was I moving freely again,but other aches and pains were also absent. Sore neck, lower back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, and aching calf muscles. Sachie also treated these problems for me , and gave me exercises to prevent future injuries. I am so grateful to Sachie, her sensitive caring, and genuine concern was evident in her professional manner. In fact, I am tempted to throw myself off another mountain, so that I can visit her again.
I really can't say enough positive things about Sachie - but as therapist and human being.
I have had wonderful relief from my aches and pains - and a sense of being truly cared for by a beautiful person.
I have just started attending Sachie’s clinic on a regular basis and I feel very priviledged to have been refuelled to her for assessment and treatment.
Following diagnosis in 1988 with Fibromyalgia I have spent the years since then seeking out different types of treatment for the myriad of symptoms this condition presents, all with minimal success.In the ensuing years I have become unwell with several other conditions associated with Fibromyalgia and I have found Sachie’s holistic approach to be extremely positive and encouraging.
She has given me a great insight into my health issues, where they may originate from, and following her treatments including Acupuncture, Shiatsu , Dietary advice , Relaxation Techniques and suggestions for appropriate exercise I have experienced considerable relief from the chronic pain and other symptoms suffered for over 25years.
Sachie is an extremely knowledgeable, caring and sensitive person, thoroughly professional in her approach and has a very calming way of communicating which always leaves me feeling relaxed and peaceful both during the treatments and more importantly afterwards, enabling me to cope better in between appointments.
I will continue to see Sachie regularly as she has a “tough task “ but I lookforward to a more positive time a head with her valuable, much appreciated help.
I would recommend Sachie to anyone who is keen to take a holistic approach to managing their health.
My wife recommended Sachie Otake to me, as I was having ongoing lower back pain. After a series of Acupuncture and Shiatsu treatments, the chronic pain has gone.
I’m now converted; I’ll be contacting Sachie in the first instance if I suffer from any further health issues.
I took my son for treatment with Sachie when he had a squash injury. He received both accupuncture and massage treatments and was able to return to sport after a number of sessions without any further problems. I also sought treatment with Sachie for a bad knee injury and a shoulder injury. Both were successfully dealt with with a combination of accupunture and massage – this was a much better option than surgery!
Sachie being an ACC approved provider was a real bonus and I was very impressed with her professional and caring manner. I have no hesitation in recommending her, and as a family we will continue to use her services when the need arises.
I just thought you would appreciate some feedback regarding the support you supplied me following my broken wrist and ongoing issues.
Originally I was sent to the Merivale Hand Clinic – and although the staff were very supportive and helpful I felt the treatment did not address the chronic situation I had. I continued to go to the hand clinic 2 times a week and was getting very frustrated with the lack of progress – I then found a lady Sachie Otake who is an Acupuncture and Shiatsu Therapist and a ACC provider.
Her treatment was excellent – professional and effective – and although my serious Chronic pain and nerve damage improved a great deal, it was needing more sessions which you kindly agreed to – I have just completed the additional sessions and wish to report that although my wrist and hand has not returned to normal, I have the pain under control and – it is a great deal better and I am able to function through my everyday life and the rest of the recovery will take time – I am continuing treatment with Sachie once a fortnight to ensure a recovery.
The effectiveness of Sachie’s treatment was excellent from her not being able to touch my hand initially through the chronic pain to what has transpired – she worked on the nerves and blood flow up the entire arm which aided in recovery. I would highly recommend Acupuncture (and in particular Sachie) as part of anyone’s recovery after injury.
I wish to thank you also for the treatment provided.
Iwould just like to say I found Sachie very helpful when I needed her services for acupuncture on my left leg. With her holistic approach, she was very concerned about my health in general. She was very kind and gentle. Sachie is very good at her job and I left her premises feeling much better.
Thorough and Caring, Sachie is a true professional. She makes her patient feel at ease and that the welfare of their body and mind is her sole concern throughout any consultation or treatment.
Sachie’s acupuncture definitely helped in the treatment of my temporomandibular joint disorder (jaw clicking).
Her massage coupled with acupuncture has great results for sore muscles.
I tried acupuncture for the first time this year, and was very happy Sachie was recommend
to me. .I had a very positive outcome from my sessions with Sachie for my
tennis elbow.I’ve tried conventional treatments for the same condition on my other
elbow and acupuncture was by far best out come.Sachie makes you feel relaxed both
with her knowledgeable technique and calming communications.
I left after each session feeling energized and of positive mind.I definitely would go back to Sachie for
further treatment in the future and
I would recommend acupuncture to anyone age or ailment
I can recommend this Acupuncturist as an excellent practitioner.
When I suffered form an injury at my gym, I ended up with a neck and shoulder problem, and this time, I had numbness in my right index finger (something that had never happened before).
After only two treatments my shoulder problem was much better, and the numbness almost gone. I could feel things at my rig index finger tip again! After a third treatment the problem cleared up completely.
Satchie’s treatments are unique, in that she also does a little massage into the effected area (something that not everyone does).
I still see Satchie sometimes for some regular treatment, for a few other issues, and some old injuries. This is an excellent practitioner whom I can recommend thoroughly.
I have used Sachie’s ear candles in my clinical practice for a number of years now. I love the quality of them, efficiency of burning and the results I receive. I have used them with good success for aiding the relief of sinus congestion and to help minimise the symptoms of “blocked ears”.
