GinSen Clinic - Kensington

15 Kensington Church St, Kensington, London W8 4LF, UK – 020 7937 7968

Lily (the Founder of GinSen) is deeply intuitive with many, many years of expertise and knows exactly what you need to move forward. I went to visit her struggling with my energy in the first trimester of pregnancy. She took a quick look at my tongue, eyes, and took my pulse and devised a plan to sort me out, blending herbs with acupuncture and other lifestyle changes (for example not walking around barefoot!). Within a fortnight my energy was back, my tongue and eyes had brightened and I was no longer feeling nauseous and achy all the time. Thank you Lily!

The specialists in GinSen are very helpful. They have suggested me to take herbal medicines as well as to have acupuncture sessions in order to help me improve my health. I was feeling tired all the time last year, after following the instructions of the specialists, I feel much better these days. Also, my hands and feet were cold most of the time and after taking the herbal medicines as well as the treatment, they are not cold anymore. I highly recommend GinSen for people who want to try alternative way in improving their health.

Daska Hatton

6 St Luke's Rd, London W11 1DP, UK – 07899 862126

I've been doing Alexander with Daska for almost two years now and she's been absolutely great. Starting off as a complete beginner with no idea what Alexander was all about, she has taught me so much and I've seen noticeable improvements to not only my physical wellbeing but my mental wellbeing too.

After wanting to improve my posture and stop holding tension in my shoulders I decided to try Alexander Technique. Friends and family had recommended it to me for sometime, but it was only after increased stress at work increased the tension in my back that I started. Alexander Technique teaches the student to change poor habits of holding ourselves, sitting or standing, so improving the ease and freedom of our movement, balance, support and coordination. During sessions the student will be guided by the teacher to learn to move efficiently while maintaining a correct relationship between the head, neck and spine. I had lessons with Daska for 18 months. After only a few sessions I noticed that I was carrying less stress in my shoulders. Prospective students need to have commitment to the process, as it takes time to unpick our old habits. But stick with it and what you learn is how to carry yourself more freely. So it is very much an investment in yourself that you have for life. I can’t recommend Daska highly enough as a teacher. I always enjoyed my lessons with her and found her to be an open and kind person, who puts you at ease in her approach to teaching. She is very passionate about her practice and after 20 years practicing Alexander Technique is clearly very knowledgeable and accomplished in what she does. This is clear through her instruction during lessons. Daska helped me transform my posture for which I can’t thank her enough.
