Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
Review from Cheryl Stungo
"He has an honest, straightforward approach". "We are thrilled and delighted with the improvements in my mom's health thanks to Dr. Chau's insight and expertise. Above all, we are grateful for his kind heart and caring manner. I cannot recommend him highly enough, whatever problem you may have! I took mum (age 88) to Dr. Chau after she was put on beta-blockers by a GP in South Africa for high blood pressure, which slowed her heart rate and left her hobbling. Her left leg felt as hard as dead wood, there was no feeling in it. She also had acid reflux, constant stomachache, and incredibly itchy skin and she had fungal toenails. Naturally, with all this, she was unable to sleep well and felt terrible most of the time. Another GP I consulted in Watford gave her a further prescription for beta-blockers, without further investigations.
We turned to Dr. Chau hoping he could find the source of the problems. He immediately pinpointed a previously undiagnosed clot in the leg, said he was able to help us and only a few visits later the large clot has almost disappeared after he administered acupuncture and Chinese medicine. We are reducing the beta-blockers gradually under his direction with a view to eliminating them altogether and all her other problems have improved dramatically. She is walking normally, no stomach pain or acid reflux and once off the beta-blockers entirely she should have no more itchy skin. Even the toenails have improved, although it will take some weeks before the nails grow out and return to normal. As Dr. Chau explained, he looks at the whole body and uses acupuncture to get it working well and in harmony, rather than focussing on and treating just one symptom or condition. Was it good value? In my opinion, absolutely. I chose this clinic because when I phoned. Dr Chau answered the phone himself and I liked his honest, straightforward approach. I believe that if he thought he could not help us, he would have said so. At the first visit, he asked very pertinent questions and quickly progressed to the heart of the matter. It was clear to me that he cares deeply about helping his patients and explains very carefully what he proposes to do and how it will help you."
"I came to Dr Chau in Feb 2017 with fertility issues. I had been trying for 2 years but been unsuccessful. I was 45 years old and felt time was running out.
After a thorough consultation he agreed to work with me. I became pregnant in November 2017. I’m very grateful to Dr Chau. He is very talented and I strongly recommend him to anyone struggling to conceive."

"We had been trying to conceive for over year when I first started acupuncture with Dr.Chau. Within Three months of treatment I fell pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy! Since, I have been recommending Dr.Chau to everyone I meet..He is a true professional and offers a highly effective course of treatment!"

I mainly wanted to get acupuncture done for infertility but because my periods had stopped post ovarian cancer and i had to get one of my ovary removed, Dr. Chow recommended we first try to get my periods back. It was a challenge because there were limitations on the kind of treatment he could give me because of my medical history. However, after a few months of acupuncture, i have started having my periods regularly. Its almost a miracle as the doctors had pretty much given up.
Next step is to try and conceive. Fingers crossed!

I’ve suffered from vertigo and tinnitus for several years, but my GP and different specialists, after several rounds of vestibular balance and hearing tests, keep drawing a blank. The conclusion each time, and following the failure of Betahistine tablets, is that there’s nothing they can do. This is little comfort with deteriorating symptoms. Following some research by my wife, I decided to try acupuncture with Dr Chau. Fortunately, this has brought me considerable relief and, and whilst not 100% cured yet, I am probably 90% and thus well on the way. Put simply, I feel better than I have in years. Thank you!

Depression, Insomnia & Headaches
When I started seeing Dr. Chau was being treated with the prescription drugs for depression, insomnia and headaches. I also had severe menstrual cramps and digestive problems. With the combined treatments of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, my symptoms have either greatly improved or have been eliminated completely. I am off of all the medications. Thanks for everything you’ve done for me. Dr. Chau really is a healer.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
I have been dealing with irritable bowel syndrome over 8 years. I went through a number of prescription drugs with no success. After years of no improvement in my condition, I decided to try acupuncture therapy. After acupuncture treatments with Dr. Chau my IBS symptoms virtually disappear. I feel very fortunate to have found a doctor and a healer to help me. I highly recommend acupuncture for the treatment of IBS.

Over the past five years I have tried almost every acne treatment available, from over the counter creams to chemical peels to prescribed creams and antibiotics. Some of treatments did provide some temporary relief. But nothing had truly cleared my face. After acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatments, now my face is clear. There are no words that can express my gratitude to Dr.Chau. I highly recommend Dr.Chau for treatment.

I have been treated for back and leg pain for ten years, often using a walker and always using my cane. My tolerance for standing still or walking without pain was perhaps two to three minutes before I needed to sit for a while to be able to start again. I have had sets of cortisone shots and pain pills. None of these were very effective. The decision was surgery, which scared me. My friend referred me to Dr. Chau who cured him of severe migraine headaches. After a couple of acupuncture treatments, I am walking further than before and with less pain. Thank you, Dr. Chau!!!

I was suffering with a bad back in 2015 and after seeing several different specialists I was diagnosed at spire hospital in bushey with a prolapsed disc. They tried the various injections but nothing helped so I was booked in for an operation. I felt very uneasy with this as I was only 30 years old so thought I'd try one last thing. This is when I visited the china clinic! I felt instant results! Don't get me wrong it wasn't a pleasant experience but my God was it worth it. Not only did the pain go away but I regained full movement and was back at work and in the gym before long. Not only would I recommend this place to anyone for any Ailment but Dr chau should change his name to Jesus! Because he works miracles!

After having suffered 4 recurrent miscarriages following the birth of my son 4 years ago, I decided to seek some form of "alternative" treatment for my condition. Myself and my partner desperately wanted a brother or sister for our little boy and all test and treatments offered by the NHS were either unsuccessful (resulting in further miscarriages) or inconclusive (a reason for the miscarriages couldn't be found). I decided to try acupuncture in the hope this would result in a successful pregnancy. I found Dr.Chau's details via the internet and from the moment I made an appointment to see him, He put me at my ease and explained the benefits of acupuncture along with Chinese herbal medicine and I decided to follow the course of treatment she recommended. I fell pregnant again fairly quickly and Prof.Chau carried on treating me until I was 20 weeks pregnant. After this time, I felt confident that this pregnancy would progress. I felt happy and healthy throughout the pregnancy, and now have a beautiful little baby girl who was born in October. I am convinced his unique treatment contributed towards this happy outcome and would recommend her to anyone suffering similar problems. Thank you so much Dr.Chau!

Panic & Stress
I had a little knowledge of the wonders of acupuncture from family members so when I started to have panic attacks related to stress it was time to seek treatment. After a consultation with Prof.Chau. I found out that not only could he treat my condition, he could treat everything else that was wrong with me. I've had bad hay fever since a child and dread the Spring and Summer months. After a month or so of treatment I was feeling a lot better and my hay fever was more or less totally gone. It's totally changed my life. It's miraculous.
--Mathew from Rickmansworth
Dr. Todd is incredible. He helped me recover from near death to reasonable health very quickly. I am now well on my way to full recovery and optimum health, thanks to maintenance treatments with him now. As he is also a medical doctor I had/have total trust in him. I am so grateful he -was recommended to me! He gets results. A+++++++++++++++

I initially attended acupuncture sessions to get help with giving up smoking and have found it very useful in doing so. In addition there have been some ancillary benefits including an improvement in quality of sleep and a reduction in anxiety levels. I have also had a beneficial reduction in irritation from a recurring hip problem. The sessions are prompt, professional and are conducted in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Thank you Dr.Chau!
--John from Bushey
I went to Dr Todd Chau with back and shoulder pain like a red hot poker in my shoulder. His approach is professional, straightforward and caring. Already after two consecutive, close-together sessions, I felt a real improvement. I subsequently went twice a week for a month and then fortnightly and now a monthly top-up. I’m 95% there. I do have pain-free days but also get occasional tinges though nothing like before. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Dr Chau for acupuncture.

Went to the China clinic was having terrible trouble with my shoulder and neck . Professor chua said I had a frozen shoulder . So he gave me acupuncture. After the first visit it felt so much better I had a further two appointments and now my neck and shoulder are as good as new. Can't believe it if I ever have any more problems I will be straight back to see the professor. Excellent 5 stars

Dr Todd, has been a life saver for me, as I was down with severe sciatica and visited a few specialists, including our very own NHS, who unfortunately could not do much other than prescribing pain killers at the offset of my condition. It was Dr Todd who got me back on my feet, and allow to run and play with my 6 year old.
I appreciate that it is alternative medicine and may not be most appropriate for every medical ailment, but believe you me Dr Todd will be clear at the off set to guide you if he could treat the condition or not.
He is not only good at what he does but most importantly is a great human being and till date has never told me how many sessions of treatments I would need or when I need to visit him next, yes he would guide me but always leave the ball in my court.
I now not only have my personal experience with him, but have also had positive feedback from all those whom I have recommended to see him.
