Freedom from Addiction

Whether severe or mild, physical or mental, Addictions hold you back in the areas your true self wants to move forward in life. Perhaps you would like to get ahead in your career, be a leader in your field, be a terrific parent, or just express yourself creatively in other areas? Addictions are a perfect way to self-sabotage and keep yourself distracted, making you feel unworthy of even considering such goals.

Every addiction starts with a desire to simply feel better but, in the long run, ironically we all know that it’ll only make things worse, and will ultimately sabotage the path that is aligned with your true wishes and wants.

Client testimonial:

I started acupuncture treatment with Olivia Shurdova in June of 2010. I had never been to an acupuncturist before but this kind of treatment had been recommended by an author who is a specialist in freedom from addiction, (Jost Sauer) and so I began treatment to help with my cocaine and marijuana addiction. From the very first treatment I began to experience an improvement in my health, mood and outlook. I didn’t know much about acupuncture but Olivia explained a bit about what she was doing and slowly I started to understand the importance of the meridians and organ function. Together with the Chinese herbs Olivia prescribed me, I steadily improved in my mental outlook and physical health. I am happy to say the treatment was a success and two years on I have not returned to the bad habits which had debilitated me so much. I have however continued to see Olivia – not because I am in poor physical health, quite the contrary! I have never looked and felt better. But I enjoy our sessions and go every few months for a “top-up” as I trust Olivia wholeheartedly and have recommended her to many of my friends, a couple of whom have seen her for various ailments.

Freedom from addiction comes when there is no longer even the desire to alter one’s state of being — and it’s then that you’re able to embark on a life full of real vitality and new potential. To book in or find out more, please get in touch. Email us at, or through our Contact page.
