Thanks for visiting but I’ve …

gone surfing

I return from leave on Monday morning, 23 July.  A couple of reminders:

summer yoga sessions: Wednesday evenings have one or two spaces left for each class.  Friday mornings have plenty of spaces.  (All classes to be prebooked)

reiki shares: the next share is Monday 13 August 1900-2100

And I’m available through August for appointments.  I have occasional days off but the system is up to date.  You can BOOK ONLINE or email via the CONTACT page with your request.  August is always changeable, as clients find themselves pulled to holiday destinations or childcare arrangements have to change.  If you can’t find the appointment you want, let me know, the sands may have shifted!

Morning Retreat

Some comments about the morning retreat:

‘… a quiet afternoon after a lovely morning.  Thank you for a lovely start to half-term’

‘… I did enjoy the morning it was perfectly paced. Thank you …’

‘… It was really lovely.  I’ve missed your classes in that beautiful space, and great to practise again in a group …’

‘… It was very different from other classes I have been to. Reflection is not my thing! I did find that we were standing too long which effectively seized up my lower back but it did recover.  It was good to get a different experience but I am not sure that it ticks my boxes. Thank you anyway’

‘… I thoroughly enjoyed the morning.  For me it was the right mix of yoga, discussions and meditation …’

‘... I think this morning was a real success … especially on a Sunday …’

 

 

 

 

 

Menopause & Well-being

‘I can’t recommend Yvonne highly enough and I really do value her therapies, kindness and friendship. I initially went for my first consultation (2013) as I was struggling with some on-going back/neck problems (a lifetime of nursing) and some frustrating menopausal symptoms – night sweats, tiredness, insomnia; unsurprisingly I was not feeling myself and felt like I was losing the essential ‘moi’.

I would like to think (as a nurse) that I have always been open-minded with my attitude towards alternative therapies and how valuable they can be in supporting more ‘conventional’ therapies. I certainly did not want to start taking HRT – mainly because I wanted to take a natural approach to the menopause if I could, as it is after all a natural (but frustrating) process.  Reflexology has definitely helped improve my symptoms and ability to cope with a wide range of symptoms.

Several years on I am nearly symptom free and I still enjoy the feeling of wellbeing that reflexology gives me; overall it has been a great restorative and helped me to feel ‘balanced’ (and in control) again. More recently I have been introduced to Thai massage for my neck and I can completely trust Yvonne’s judgement on which therapy is likely to be best for me.’ (Julie)

Times of life

‘I started to see Yvonne for reflexology to help with hormone imbalance linked to menopause. The treatment was calming and supportive. I now have Thai massage which is enormously beneficial in undoing the strains and holding patterns in my body. I find that my time with Yvonne feels like respite from a busy world!’ (Lesley)
