It is always great to have some feedback, but more important than hearing that I have helped you, it is great for others to see if I can help them too. I really appreciate feedback, and in the form of a testimonial means that visitors to my site can get an idea of what to expect from a session with me, and perhaps gain some insight as to how I work with you.
Thank you, Carol
"Carol took a very thorough history and gave me plenty of useful tips to follow, before giving me the most wonderful Reiki session. I left feeling so much better in myself (and about myself). I can wholeheartedly recommend her treatments!"
Lizzie is very aware of the need for self care, and has done a lot of work to make sure that she remains at her best. The reiki really helps her keep on top of her game.
"I just wanted to tell you, whatever you did in my treatment has made one heck of a difference to me! You are AMAZING! I feel more in alignment, definitely more energy, better balance, more space inside me, my foot is comfortable, my tummy has space and I can breathe easier. Thank you Little Miss Magic Hands!"
I have been working with this lady for some time, and she has also been seeing Bronwyn Jones, Alresford Osteopath craniosacral therapist, and Annette Hornby, Kinesiologist. Both therapists had felt that she was short of oxygen, although no sign of problems with her heart or lungs apparent. I was aware that she had been experiencing long standing stress, so having discussed with her my plan, we tried an experimental intuitive treatment on her Psoas muscle which is directly affected by stress, and as it tightens and shortens if pulls on the hips, thighs, spine and diagraphagm, all areas with which she has had restriction. During the session she reported feeling a sense of movement and release deep inside her abdomen and legs. The following day, she felt zingy and springy, but reacted with caution as a small release can often create more energy and vitality, but may require further treatments to add permanence to the treatment. The second day after the treatment she felt even better, with improved balance, greater comfort in her foot (which she had turned over on some months before), greater energy again and a vitality she had not experienced in many years. She has homework to practice yoga, both the Tree Pose and Sun Salutation at home, and we will continue to build on this deep area of treatment.
"I have massage every 2 weeks with Carol. I use the sessions in two main ways; as a relaxation; and a conscious awareness of my body. I find that the relaxation and mental space enables me to focus on the muscle groups that Carol is working on, enabling me to release whatever is being held there on both a physical and emotional level. Without it, I feel my body and mind would suffer equally with the pressures of every day life."
Caroline is herself a therapist. She benefits from the gentle touch of Swedish massage following around 45 minutes of myofascial release technique. During our session, we do not talk as she enjoys the tranquillity of silence. I have been seeing her for around 8 months regularly, and she feels that seeing me every 2 weeks is what benefits her for general good health, and if she has any problems, she visits in-between too.

Below are photographs of a client before and after a massage session including Myofascial Release Technique and Hot Stone Massage. I use photography to demonstrate to the client how they hold their body, and how the session may help them re-balance their posture. This client has kindly allowed me to use his shots here. I asked him to stand up straight and tall with his arms in a relaxed position by his side. This session was a 2 hour session, and the first time I saw him. Note not only the position of his head and arms, but also the alteration in his full posture demonstrated around his back and hips in particular.
"Carol in in tune with a river of relaxation that runs through her bones and blood. Once her hands land on skin, its like the kiss of air on water. Everything moves naturally again. Balance is restored."
Mick first saw me when I lived and worked in Godalming and has followed me to Alresford. He enjoys a soothing Swedish massage, and likes gentle music.

I would highly recommend Carol."
