Sara Wood
Scar Therapy

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.

Maria Anderson
Reiki, Reiki Drum & Shamanic 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.
When this energy becomes disrupted or blocked, stress and dis-ease in the body may follow.
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.

The treatment is given fully clothed.

Maria is a fully qualified Reiki Master and Reiki Drum Practitioner.

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

Is it time to come back to your authentic self?
To rea
ch your potential and make your dreams a living reality?
Is it time to let go of the beliefs that hold you back, to move on from the old story and start creating the life you wish to live?

A Shamanic healing can help you move through periods when you have lost sight of who you are, when you have feelings of disempowerment and seem unable to move forward.

Working on the energetic level, a 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 can be anything from a telling of as a child, a harsh word or action from somebody or an event that creates a story we tell ourselves, over and over, until it becomes a belief.

In the Illumination process we release this energy, letting go of the old and create a new story, a new way of being.

In creating your own story you can live a joyful life, from the heart, fully present. Re-discover who you really are, your unique talents and gifts. By unsticking yourself you step into your own power, into your own Destiny.
Life is a sacred journey and it is the role of your shaman to support you on this path, utilising the processes of illumination, extraction, soul retrieval and transition rites.

It is time to step into vibrant well-being and a life lived to the full!

A session will usually last between 1 to 2 hours.
The amount of sessions needed will depend on each persons healing.
