Have you had a Caesarean section, a hysterectomy or other abdominal surgery?
Scar Therapy treats not only the scar, but also the surrounding tissue and considers the scar's impact on movement, function and balance within the whole body.
Treatment encourages mobility between the layers of skin, fascia and muscle to loosen and release tight scar tissue. This can improve core function, reduce pain and discomfort and improve range of motion.
If you think you could benefit from this type of treatment and would like more information please contact Vanessa to arrange for an informal chat.

Soft Tissue Massage, Scar Therapy
Soft Tissue Massage
More commonly known as Sports and Remedial Massage,
Soft Tissue Therapy uses a number of different techniques to help treat minor and chronic injuries. By treating the different layers of soft tissue we work to alleviate pain, improve function and restore muscle tone, symmetry and balance.
Soft Tissue Therapy can be used to address specific problems or injuries that are often caused by our lifestyles. Remedial Massage uses a variety of techniques to treat the layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia to change the soft tissues and ultimately reduce pain.
Each session is tailored to meet your individual requirements depending on your presenting symptoms and needs.
A full clinical assessment is made to establish the most appropriate treatment plan. Each treatment will combine both superficial and deep massage and other advanced soft tissue techniques such as:
Soft Tissue Release,
Muscle Energy Technique
Neuro Muscular Technique,
Facial Release Technique
Positional Release Technique
Reiki, Reiki Drum Healing, 1-1 Yoga
The Reiki healing technique is based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the client by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the clients body and restore physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Reiki is a system of energy healing originating from Japan. The word Reiki itself translates to 'Universal Life Energy' and is based on the understanding that life energy (Chi in Chinese medicine or Prana in Yoga) flows through all living things.
Reiki Drum Technique
Combining Reiki and Drumming creates the Reiki Drum Technique, a method of utilising the drum to introduce Reiki energy into a person's energy field to bring about deep relaxation thereby releasing deep seated tensions and achieving homeostasis. The drum rhythm reminds the body of its optimal vibration. Research has indicated that even drumming for a short period of time can induce an "alpha state", those brainwaves associated with wellbeing and euphoria.
A Reiki treatment will normally last an hour.
Maria is a fully qualified Reiki Master and Reiki Drum Practitioner.
For Reiki, 1 - 1 Yoga, Shamanic case study please

1 - 1 Yoga practice
A perfect way to get to know your body and what works for you. Every-body is unique and therefore no yoga pose will look the same
I love the quote from Bernie Clark "We use the yoga pose to get into the body, not the body to get into the pose.
Together we will look at your unique anatomy and work out a practice that works best for you.
Shamanic Energy Healing
Shamanic healing works to release energy blocks from the body.
Heavy energy can get locked in our body's energy system, the chakras, from previous trauma. A trauma could be anything from a telling of as a child, a harsh word from somebody or an event that creates a story we tell ourselves, over and over, until is it becomes a belief.
In the Illumination process we release this energy, illuminate the area, letting go of the old story and create a new way of being.
In creating your own story you can live a joyful life, from the heart, fully present. Discover who you really are, your unique talents and gifts. By unsticking yourself you step into your own power, into your own Destiny.
Illumination case studies welcome.
Rachel Redfern - Life Coach
Rachel is passionate about women fulfilling their true potential despite the rigours of living in our complex hyper connected world as a wife, mother, daughter, sibling, friend or work colleague.
The quality of our relationship with ourselves is at the core of having a fulfilling life and impacts on how we operate at home and work. When I took my own personal leap of the corporate ladder I was well practiced in the art of advising others on how to manage relationships with their clients yet had no idea of who I was and what I needed to thrive not just survive. If I had had a coach to work with I would have made more reflective decisions about what to do rather than what turned out to be an emotional leap off the diving board.
With this in mind I have trained as a Relational Dynamic Coach - running my own business and living a creative life means I think differently. I am well aware of the pressures people feel from those operating at a senior level in a global business, running a small firm or as a mother trying to make all things work in balance - because I have been there.
I am drawn to women in transition, creating businesses, balancing ambition and personal challenges.
I am an advisor to ‘Women in Technology’ and a panel coach for 'She Leads Change’ which is a perfect fit providing the opportunity to blend my business development, creative and coaching skills together to affect change".
Sessions can be 1 hour, 90 minutes or 2 hours. The length of sessions, session frequency and number of sessions are agreed with each client on an individual basis and we will discuss this before the first session.
I charge an hourly rate on a sliding scale (on request) and ask you to pay what you can afford within that scale. If you are on a low income or unemployed please email me – I offer some lower cost sessions.
You can book session by session if you prefer, or you can book to work with me for a 3 or 6 month period, this could be an initial longer session, followed by shorter sessions and could be in person or by Zoom or phone. Please contact me to find out more and we can tailor make a coaching package for you.
