Client Reviews

I would highly recommend a visit to Marilia. After nearly three years of constant knee she has successfully reduced it to being pain free some days and just there on others. I was advised to have a knee replacement but with acupuncture and other self help I am now able to do tasks that would have be near impossible three months ago and a knee replacement is not on the agenda. Marilia is a very calming, kind and caring lady and I felt confident in her treatment and advise. Thank you doesn’t come close as she has given me my life back.

“I contacted Marilia after a recommendation from a friend and I am really glad I did. This was my 3rd pregnancy and I had previously suffered severely with SPD. Marilia undertook a program of acupuncture to not only help my SPD, but also lack of energy, back pain and pain management during labour. This was by far the best pregnancy of all 3 as whilst my SPD did occur, it was much more manageable. To put this into context I ended up in a wheelchair during my first, on crutches with my second and with my third I was looking after a 3 and 5 year old and still getting around. I cannot recommend Marilia highly enough for her approach, advice and professionalism and would not hesitate in any way recommending her.”


“Having had to cope with chronic back pain and neck pain for many years, the last flare up found me looking for some relief with Acupuncture as I have had a good response from this type of treatment before, but is always very expensive. I decided to take advantage of the affordable Tuesdays available on offer at Energia Vital, although it is a communal service Marilia takes great care to keep it as private and personal as she can. Her kindness and professional approach s very rewarding and has also been a great support after my recent surgery to my neck, The communal area is a very warm and comforting area for you to relax while receiving your treatment.”


Highly recommended! Marilia is extremely knowledgeable, professional and approachable. Her knowledge, skills and personal approach made me feel better almost instantly. Her sessions were very relaxing and customized to my needs. She also told me a lot about the diet and certain foods and spices which helped me get better. I can honestly say she helped me recover and I would not hesitate to recommend her services. Thank you!
