'I have regularly recommended Ally Purchon to both Royal Shakespeare Company members and also my friends. In addition I have gone to her for acupuncture myself regularly over the past 3 years. She is your 'one and only stop' for the treatment of migraine, anxiety, stress, aches and pains, in fact any problems you may have. I strongly recommend Ally to anyone seeking wellness....she is great.'
Jondon. Company Manager. Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company. 1986 - 2019.
'I arrived to rehearse David Walliams 'The Boy in the Dress' totally burnt out by a non stop year of acting. I felt physically and mentally exhausted, everything ached. I didn't have the energy to open another show. A Doctor advised complete rest, which was not an option. I seriously worried my fatigued was so great I might have to pull out, but then I found Ally. She was a godsend. With her wonderful, caring, holistic approach she understood completely. After an in depth consultation and only a few acupuncture treatments , I felt completely de-stressed, re-energised, balanced and back to my normal self and able to carry on. Ally kept in touch with follow up treatments which I used as power boosts throughout the run. I can never thank her enough. She literally saved the show. I thoroughly recommend her to everyone. She is amazing.'
Forbes Masson. Mr Hawtrey. The Boy in the Dress. Royal Shakespeare Company.2019/2020
‘I really value my acupuncture sessions. Ally has treated me successfully for 5 years addressing various problems with my back, low energy and arthritis. I recommend her to many theatrical friends who sustain a variety of injuries. Ally is sensitive to my fear of needles and my treatments are painless and effective.’
Sue Wilson. Artistic Director. Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.2007 - 2012.
'Working all hours of the day at the RSC can take it out of you, encourage stress and the mentality of ‘just getting through it’ and forgetting to enjoy life. Seeing Ally reminded me of this. She helped me to really relax and remember what’s important. Her sessions were truly a utopia away from every day life, she’s easy to talk to, warm and so understanding of everything. She deals with issues incredibly practically but with the utmost care. I can’t recommend her enough. If you don’t know what you’re looking for - Accupuncture with Ally ticks all the boxes. From back pain to heartbreak you’ll leave each session feeling more like yourself, grounded and refreshed.'
Rosy McEwen. Zenocrate. Tamburlaine. Royal Shakespeare Company. 2019.
‘I approached Ally for help with bereavement grief that was so serious it impinged my capacity to work. I did so with a degree of scepticism. However I was hugely impressed. The care with which she listened, analysed and explained, and the precision of the treatment enabled me to get right back on my feet! Many many thanks Ally.’
Paola Dionisotti. Mistress Quickly. Henry IV Part 1. Royal Shakespeare Company. 2014
'Ally's huge talent not only lies in her work with the magic acupuncture needles but also in her heart warming personality. A session with her is like having a chat with your best friend whilst having a large Gin and Tonic. You leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.'
Andrew Greenough. Dr Charles Savage. Hollyoaks. Channel 4. 2014-2015
Ally’s work is non confrontational, non judgemental and determined entirely by what you need. It was refreshing, reinvigorating and honest. It is my pleasure to recommend her her.’
Lucian Msamati. Iago. Othello. Royal Shakespeare Company. 2015.
‘I had never tried acupuncture before Ally and the results were immediate and highly beneficial. My acupuncture treatment with Ally dealt with my persistent muscle discomfort brilliantly. Friendly, professional and highly effective.’
