After multiple abdominal and pelvic surgeries, including an emergency open surgery for complete intestine obstruction due to adhesions, I was left with more internal adhesions that were gradually getting tighter and moving me towards complete obstruction of my intestines once again. I was told by the hospital the only option was further surgery and what looked like a never ending merry go round of surgery only leading to more adhesions. I felt hopeless and very scared, I was in intense pain whenever I ate due to these adhesions, had severe complex PTSD from relational and medical trauma and chronic fatigue syndrome which often left me unable to move. I was debilitated and told there was nothing that could be done for any of it by the hospital.

I am so thankful to have found Sutherland House when I did and their support quite literally saved my life. The staff at Sutherland House are all very lovely and there is always a peaceful and welcoming feeling at the clinic and when arranging appointments. When I first met Eva and Judith I had been living in survival mode for so many years I was extremely intense and tearful, yet they remained calm, patient and supportive as they took the time to fully understand my situation. 

Eva and Judith with their training in clear passage and frequency specific microcurrent were able to release the adhesions over the course of only a few weeks so that I once again could eat and digest food without unbearable stabbing pains. I was also able to stand up straight properly rather than being pulled forwards and down by the adhesion bonds. I also had frequency specific microcurrent for PTSD and this course of treatment left my nervous system much calmer.

In trying to find solutions to alleviate my chronic fatigue I discovered treatments to power up the body’s mitochondria which I discovered becomes exhausted from chronic stress. I told Eva about my success with this treatment and she took the time to explore the wider research and its effectiveness and trained in it herself. I found that upper cervical chiropractic managed to be the missing piece to completely resolve my chronic fatigue. I did not realize that a previous head injury actually caused a neck misalignment which had been disrupting nervous system flow through my brain stem and is where the deterioration of my health likely began. Eva once again showed great interest in hearing of this. She is extremely passionate about resolving problems and seeing the big picture, and I admire her constant willingness to grow the practice to support complex cases like mine that are left by mainstream medicine feeling they have nowhere to turn.

Martine and Nathalie are beautiful, highly skilled acupuncturists. I felt incredibly safe and held by their care. I’m very grateful to have received their healing treatment.

I have been seeing Lynn Haller for over 20 years. Superb treatment. The staff at Sutherland House are extremely accommodating, supportive, professional and full of smiles. Always a pleasure to walk through the door, even when in discomfort!

Very experienced practitioners who know their stuff! Real expertise in tailoring the treatments required to the specific problem – in my case helping resolve many long term conditions that have proven resistant to other treatments. Thanks so much for your help.

After suffering an injury to my right shoulder I attended Sutherland House Natural Path Clinic in North London where I met Charmaine Smyth, Physiotherapist.
She carried out an assessment of my condition and over three separate visits she treated my injury both manually and with FSM. In addition with normal exercises to do at home my shoulder greatly improved over a short period of time.
Charmaine is friendly, caring and fully understood the treatment that I required. That treatment, especially FSM, is a procedure where I can only describe it as a machine which stimulates the body to repair itself and speeds up the recovery time compared to normal manual exercises.
The staff at Sutherland House were also very friendly and made me feel welcome and at ease.
I have no hesitation in recommending Charmaine as very caring, efficient and above all very professional individual and who would offer treatment that you may require to a very high standard.

FSM has been a fundamental part of my healing journey. I suffered from chronic pain, PID, bladder and gut issues for years due to damaging antibiotics. Since seeing Eva for FSM, it has helped my gut mobility, healed internal adhesions that I didn’t even know I had and assisted my organ performance and calm my nervous system down. I can not recommend this service enough for those with chronic illnesses for years without resolve. My only question is why do not more people know about this?!

Earlier this year, I got up one morning with severe lower back pain. It was really painful. I saw Sarojni and I can’t recommend her enough. She gave me osteopathic and FSM treatment and prescribed exercises. This initial treatment with the exercises has not only improved my back pain but also encouraged me to review the way I sit and work. Sarojni was exceptionally professional, as gentle as she could be and explained what she was doing throughout the treatment. I would definitely keep recommend her. Thank you Sarojni.

I came to Sutherland House following chronic back pain which had kept me physically inactive for over 3 years. Eva used FSM and worked on deep scar tissue. With each treatment I could feel release and increases in range of motion, as well as reduction in pain and discomfort. I am now back training and feeling like myself again. Eva has great knowledge, intuition and a passion for healing, I cannot recommend her and Sutherland House enough!

I was suffering from acute pain due to a slipped disc, pain killers didn’t appear to have much effect and I was close to having a cortisone jab. I went to Sutherland House as I thought some form of physiotherapy could help with the pain. I had sessions on alternate days, my GP gave me some stronger pain killers and the pain slowly subsided. The Sutherland House practitioners gave me the confidence and belief to give it time and I am now so thankful that I didn’t rush down the interventionist route.

Following a diagnosis of Ulcerative colitis, I was recommended to Marina at Health Revisited to get advice on how to manage this condition as well as my health in general. Thanks to Marina’s expert advice and vast knowledge over the last few months; and her amazing support and guidance, not only did we discover that I was not suffering from Colitis but another condition, which she was able to eradicate, I am feeling better than I have done for many years! Thank you Marina for all your help

A lovely kind and responsive practice. Eva and FSM have changed my life very much for the better. After 20 years of chronic fatigue and illness Eva has worked wonders and being able to use FSM at home too has been enormously helpful. My fibromyalgia is massively improved as is my pain and I am able to do gentle pilates ( for hypermobiles) constructively and am much stronger .I have tried chiropractic, osteopathy , cranial work, acupuncture and physiotherapy consistently for many years but this has really unwound my holding patterns.

I pinched a nerve and got treated by Anna for a few weeks. Not only did she treat the original injury but she gave me exercises and stretched to prevent it from happening again! Very highly recommend!!

I have been seeing Martine and Natalie for traditional acupuncture at Sutherland House for a while now and I can honestly say it is a haven of tranquility there and they have helped me so much both mentally and physically during what has been a very tough emotional time. They are both terrific in what they do and I recommend this treatment to all.

I cannot recommend Martine and Natalie (who I see for natural acupuncture) at Sutherland House highly enough.
Throughout my fertility and IVF journey, they have been through my side and have begun to feel more like friends than a service.
What I love about their approach to acupuncture is how they take the time to really understand my personal situation each week and then adapt my treatment accordingly – it’s never a one size fits all. They also explain every needle and how it will benefit me (and when to expect a zinger!).
Overall, my experience couldn’t have been better and I guarantee you won’t find better acupuncturists in London!

I have been very seriously unwell with chronic lyme disease, and a dysregulated nervous system. I first came to see Eva in a very bad way and after a series of 5 tor 6 treatments of FSM i am experiencing a noticeable improvement with my heart rate, nervous system, ability to tolerate stress, improved sleep and stamina. Eva is highly experienced with complex cases and dedicated. Having tried so many therapies and tools i am seeing results and regaining confidence. I am sincerely grateful to Eva! Highly recommended for autonomic nervous system dysregulation and PTSD. Recommended by Dr Neil Nathan world renowned specialist in Lyme disease and toxicity.

I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding care I have been receiving from Eva at Sutherland House Clinic for my gastrointestinal issues. Although only at the start of my treatment, through the use of FSM, mobilisations, manipulations, and connective tissue massage, Eva’s expertise has already led to significant improvements. Her immense knowledge of complex cases, coupled with her kindness and empathy, ensures that you are in safe hands. The clinic’s commitment to providing exceptional healthcare is evident, and I highly recommend Eva and Sutherland House Clinic for effective and compassionate treatment. Thank you for making a positive impact on my health.

I had an amazing experience working with Judith and Eva at Sutherland House. Their knowledge of the body is absolutely incredible, and I have left feeling significantly more mobile. Judith was very patient and thorough in explaining things, and it’s obvious that she is an expert in women’s health. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Anna treated me with FSM both before and after knee replacement surgery. She also gave me a clear exercise schedule to follow. My recovery has been remarkable. The care and kindness was so comforting. I am very grateful to Anna

I’ve been going to Sutherland House for the past few months and can honestly say the personnel there is fantastic. I was involved in a serious accident where my whole lower spine collapsed, damaging a lot of my crucial nerves in my lower back and legs. Within 5months, I’ve gone from being unable to walk to walking and even starting to do light jogs. I was told by the hospital doctors it would take between 9months to a year to just go back to normal walking. Eva is the name of the magician who has helped massively speed up my recovery.

I’ve been seeing Eva for FSM treatment. To my understanding, the treatment essentially sends out different levels of electrical currents/frequencies to cause different reactions in the body to help with nerve pain relieve and repair. I can say with confidence that has worked wonders on me. Its re-awakened and helped with, the recovery of my damaged leg (especially my right which was completely numb) and back nerves. The other benefit to this is that the treatment itself is pretty much painless. I’ve done several different FSM programmes at various stages of my recovery so far, targeting specific areas and I am confident that because of this treatment, I will no longer need to consider surgery as my recovery is way ahead of plan.

Alongside this, she also gave me exercises and stretches to do to improve my core and movements, and massages to help realign my spine. I now stand up straighter than I did before the accident! I am truly grateful for her help and assistance she has provided in my speedy recovery!

I came to Sutherland House in early 2021 with alarming physical pain and mental anguish. Fibromyalgia was diagnosed and the work began trying to unpick what was causing such great stress to my nervous system. A history of disc injuries, a bad viral infection and episodes of severe chronic stress were all playing a role, but unbeknown to me were a myriad of other underlying chronic issues in my gut and a severe toxin exposure.

Over the last 20 months I have worked very closely with Marina Townsley, the naturopathic doctor at the clinic, to diagnose and treat these infections and dysbiosis in the gut and detox from mycotoxin poisoning, something I got from living in a flat with black mould. These steps have allowed my nervous system to start to rebalance and move from a state of constant fight or flight into a more rest and repair state which has given me space to heal.

Sutherland House was my first step in regaining some control over my life which had completely spiralled out of control. A key element of that has been my work with Marina who through natural herbs, natural supplements, clean diet, and patience has alleviated a significant part of the causation. She goes above and beyond the call of duty time and time again and has been right every step of the way. She knows about a whole other world of health and wellness and why it is so important to the human body.

There is hope and a way out of fibromyalgia. It takes time, patience and determination (and for me much psychological work) and I didn’t think it was possible. But it is. Have faith and work with the right people.

Eva is a wonderful physio and between her and FSM my various ailments have either disappeared or been greatly reduced. She has treated me for back and ear problems as well as general well being and it’s wonderful to know that there is such a knowledgeable physio I can count on to treat any issue that arises. The practice is full of friendly faces who go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and valued.



16 May 2023

I have been treated by Eva for about 2 years (on and off due to my being away) for, amongst other things, adhesions and SIBO and saw a great improvement with FSM. She’s super knowledgeable and took great care of me.

I also consulted Marina for just under a year, initially for help with SIBO but then after doing various tests we found out I had a number of other issues to deal with (viruses, bacteria) and she has helped me hugely with tackling these health problems.

I really enjoyed my appointments with Eva and Marina and definitely recommend them!

This place is amazing! The environment is so calm, friendly, warm, and welcoming and the people there really know their stuff. I came in with terrible back and shoulder pain, I saw Sarojni (an osteopath) and thank G-d she worked wonders! We realized the pain was a result of built up stress from over the years and she’s helped me so so much! She did cranial work as well which was so helpful in teaching me how to stay calm. There are no words to describe how grateful I am! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Thank G-d for Sutherland House!!

Our daughter now aged 10 has had nightmares for 3-4 years and was waking up 2-3 times every night. Because of disturbed sleep, she was lacking energy during the day and spending a lot of time on the internet. We didn’t want to put her on any medication, so we were looking for alternative treatments. By chance we found out about Marina and the FSM therapy. After 6 treatments, our daughter’s condition has improved a lot and she no longer wakes up at night. She still have dreams she describes as “unusual”, but no longer troubling. As a bonus, she spends more time off the internet reading books and making art.

Sarojni has treated me with FSM, cranial-sacral osteopathy and mobilisation which has significantly improved my sciatica and enabled me to walk without pain. I’m very grateful. She’s a wiz.

The treatment and care that I have received at Sutherland House have changed my life. My wonderful physio has treated me for many years for generalised joint hypermobility, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and, more recently, very serious nerve pain in both my arms and hands. Together with my physio’s hands-on therapy, guidance and care, Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) treatment has been absolutely pivotal in enabling me to continue with my university studies.

FSM treatment successfully mitigated the acute arm, hand and neck pain in 2022 that resulted from nerve root compression by osteophytes that had developed on a number of vertebrae in my neck. I was just 20 years old, disabled by the pain and could not hold a pen. Misalignment of the cervical vertebrae (thanks to the hypermobility) and stress were clear contributory factors to the development of the osteophytes, and my physio developed a specific FSM programme to realign the cervical spine and reduce neck pain. The difference was immediate. I was also able to continue with FSM treatment at university and at home, and was regularly running this specific programme, plus other programs to reduce my stress levels, manage anxiety, improve sleep, reduce inflammation and to deal with back pain generally.

I continue to have fairly regular reviews with my physio, hands-on therapy and FSM treatment at Sutherland House. At other times, I use an FSM iCare pad and app to continue with FSM treatment at home, at university or while travelling. My physio prescribes and manages the FSM programmes that are uploaded to my iCare account on the app, and I use them under her guidance.

FSM is an amazing technology and my physio is an expert at using it to promote healing. I am so thankful that I have both the support of the very caring practitioners at Sutherland House and the ground-breaking FSM medical technology to help me manage this potentially disabling condition on an ongoing basis. Thank you Eva and the team at Sutherland House!

I developed bladder urgency after my first ever UTI at the age of 29. I was offered bladder training and taking Solfenacin by a urologist consultant. I went through a low period because I couldn’t believe I had just been labelled with OAB from one acute episode of infection. It led to disruption in my work, not wishing to travel and becoming agoraphobic. I did not wish to live the rest of my life this way, so I decided to source alternative medical techniques, where in my opinion, western medicine had failed me.

This is where I came into contact with Marina Townsley, a Naturopath and FSM practitioner. After listening to my history, Marina felt that I had a dysbiosis in the gut, which may have led to these symptoms. I have been with Marina in treatment for over a year, and I am happy to say, that my bladder symptoms and the urgency has reduced markedly, and I have found a new lease of life. I no longer worry about going out in public, am less anxious, and generally, I owe Marina my mental and physical wellbeing. I would recommend Marina for FSM and herbal treatment, as she is extremely knowledgeable in her craft. Six sessions of FSM have been a turning point for me and my previous symptoms have reduced markedly.

I have now had some other issues and am carrying on, and trust that Marina will help where she can to help me.
