"I started my treatment last Friday, today is a week. I received acupuncture and massage. Today I feel so much bette, when I started my treatments I had aches and pains all over, my shoulders were stiff with so many 'knots', as was my lower back. My sciatica was also treated and the sciatica pain is so much better now. My shoulders and back feels so much better. I would recommend anyone who suffers from any type of aches and pains to visit Caroline!"– Anjie Hunt

Fertility Show 2018

Fertilty Show

"I found Caroline through the Fertility Show 2017 and struck gold!
I consider myself so fortunate to have met Caroline. Fertility doctors told me that at 38 I was in early menopause and that with low AMH and high FSH I had basically no chance of ever conceiving, if they had to put a figure on it, max 5%. I felt like whole world had caved in, I was completely devastated. I’ll never forget my first consultation with Caroline. I was a nervous, anxious wreck. I wouldn’t blame her if she thought I was a complete nutter. But Caroline was calm and patient with me and I felt comfortable with her straight away. She gave me a very thorough consultation. Caroline took it back to basics and taught me fundamental principles of TCM and ways of thinking differently. In February this year I fell pregnant naturally with my miracle baby. I am 100% convinced this is the result of Caroline and her team’s work!"

Kun Lun Qi Gong Yoga

Kun Lun Qi Gong Yoga

As a result of Grand Master Chang Ying Wang's UK visit, Caroline Cai is now fully authorised to teach and pass on this rare, powerful and ancient Kun Lun Qi Gong Yoga to all those who wish to study and learn it!

"I just started a new set of Kun Lun Qi Gong Yoga classes, enjoying them immensely and finding they are considerably aiding my general wellbeing. You may ask is this Qi Gong from China or Yoga out of India? Apparently it’s a bit of both, conceived in the Himalaya mountains somewhere between the two ancient civilisations, these lifestyle exercises are thousands years old and bring with them significant wellbeing with a multitude of benefits. In the past I’ve attended many Qi Gong classes promoting physical, mental and emotional wellbeing as well as martial arts, never though, have I come across one as intense and effective as this one. It’s only the fourth class and the ensuing feeling of general wellbeing, contentment and positive disposition within myself is already very noticeable. So if you would like a completely new holistic experience, to balance physical, mental and emotional wellness, head down to the Contemporary Chinese Clinic for a course in Kun Lun Qi Gong Yoga – I highly recommend it."
– J Haggi

Why are some of the world’s top athletes, such as US swimmer Michael Phelps, using Fire Cupping?

"The main benefits are encouraging the inflammatory response of the body and speeding up muscular and soft tissue recovery after injury and strain. Cupping therapy has widened significantly though in the last few years and newer techniques are being used for conditions and diseases away from sports therapy such as migraines and eczema." – BBC article
