Acupuncturist Martin Silliton is an incredible specialist. Thanks to his knowledge in acupuncture&Chinese herbs and attention to details of my symptoms as well as all over body's state, the severe pain which I feared each months for over 18 years simply disappeared. We are also in the process of treating a stomach related issue with acupuncture. I would highly recommend Mr Silliton!

After having acupuncture in Scotland for my Fibromyalgia pain a couple of years ago, I knew that it was the only thing that helped with my pain management. When I moved to Hemel Hempstead I was eager to find an acupuncturist that could help me again. So I was delighted to find Martin Silliton at the Beta Health Clinic, not just because he is excellent at acupuncture but he always goes that extra mile to help you with your problem, doing his own research and coming up with suggestions that can help with whatever your problem may be. He is also very easy to get on with and I felt immediately at ease with him, which is also helpful when having this type of treatment. I can't rate Martin highly enough, and would urge anyone who is thinking of this type of treatment to give him a call!

The service and treatment wee excellent. I had a problem with my neck and deferred pain into my shoulder. He treated the problem very efficiently and after 3 visits the pain and restricted movement had almost completely gone. I would happily recommend him to other people

What a wonderful man! So thorough and clearly brilliant at what he does, I would absolutely recommend him. Only 2 treatments in and I already feel so much better than I did after coming in with several issues including my neck and hamstring, both of which are finally on the road to recovery thanks to Paul.
