This is Lilla

Lilla has been a TCM practitioner in Cumbria for over 17 years.

Lilla gained a doctorate in cancer research in 1989 and was involved in post doctoral research in Britain, the United States and Japan. In Japan Lilla found acupuncture to be widely used in mainstream medicine and began an interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This led to 7 years of training in acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

Patient Recommendation:

After suffering increasing pain and discomfort from peripheral neuropathy in my feet and lower legs I visited Dr Lilla Cooper earlier in the year for acupuncture. After several treatments and taking her advise to wear gel toe separators every day for a couple of hours I am extremely pleased that I am experiencing an 80/85% improvement in the condition!
