What clients say

Here are some recent recommendations from my clients…..

I highly recommend Catherine  – I have been seeing her for a while now and have felt a lot better for it.  Catherine has a real passion for what she does and is constantly expanding her expertise. I feel she offers so much more than going for a standard massage.

Helena Bottrill, keen horserider

Thank you Catherine for your professionalism. You are really helping me to feel better with my body and it is the first time in years that my lower back pain is receding.  I fully recommend you.

I initially came to Catherine with a frozen shoulder which her manipulation helped to free. Her massages now keep my shoulder moving freely and painfree. They are also the perfect stress buster at the end of each half term!
Pamela, Primary Teacher

I first went to Catherine in the summer of 2012, with what I thought was lower back problems. I have suffered with severe debilitating migraines for many years. Catherine assessed my situation and whilst she eased my lower back she also worked wonders on my upper back and gradually my neck and shoulders. I say gradually because at first she was not able to touch my shoulders and neck due to severe nerve reaction. However with persistence Catherine has now freed my neck and shoulders which has reduced my migraines considerably. I still get the odd one or two but nowhere near as bad as they were.

Catherine has changed my life considerably of which I cannot thank her enough, now I go monthly to keep everything working – a bit like keeping your car running smoothly.

If you are in two minds due to cost – consider this. Treating yourself to a meal out or a new top lasts a short time. Your health is with you 24/7. Take time out and put yourself first for 1 hour a month. This treatment treats you physically, and mentally

I have suffered from a chronic and fluctuating condition over the past few years and Catherine has been a great help to me in managing this. She has a good understanding of my medical issues and adapts my treatment as necessary so that I get the greatest benefit.

I suffer from primary progressive MS and try different therapies to try and keep me mobile. I came to Catherine as I know that massage can relax you but in my case it does do a lot more besides. In the last year my balance has become progressively worse and I am unable to lift my left leg very high and also get numbness in my hands. A massage from Catherine really helps me to cope with these physical disabilities. After an hour in Catherine’s very capable hands I find that the massage brings back some of the feeling, sorts out the tights spots in my shoulders and gives me more flexibility in my lower back. Her gentle muscle energy techniques ‘fire up’ my muscles so that they work again for a while.

I always come away feeling more ‘flexible’ and relaxed and find it easier to move my leg up and down. It also makes it easier to move my leg in and out of bed. Nothing is ever going to be a permanent fix for MS but an hour in Catherine’s capable hands is well worth it and I can thoroughly recommend her and her wonderful therapies.

After just one treatment I had my first pain-free night for years and it’s just kept on getting better. I can sleep at nights now
Sandra Sheffield, Very active housewife and foster carer

Thank you for the massage yesterday. As ever I felt that I was walking a lot better on leaving than when I arrived. Better still this morning I found that I can now get up onto my toes on the left leg! Nick Smith, Training consultant, Partially ruptured Achilles tendon

Dear Catherine
I came to see you when I was suffering from very acute back pain and was unable to even do housework properly. You carried out remedial work over the course of a few weeks and were able to get me fully mobile again. You thought that there was an underlying problem and recommended that I went for an MRI scan. The scan showed that I have problems with the core muscles surrounding the spine.
With your help I have been able to strengthen these muscles and I am now able to live a normal life again. All I can say is thank you very much. I will continue to see you periodically for maintenance work if only for the peace and relaxation I feel after you have treated me.
Please feel free to use me as a referral to any interested clients.
Again, I thank you for making the pain go away.
Yours sincerely
Susan Richardson
Housewife and very keen gardener

I feel as if I have a new neck. I feel better than I have felt in months! Thank you so much. I didn’t know I could feel this much better after a massage. Still feel it a bit at the base of the neck and my lower back is still a bit achey but my goodness I am much improved.
Marie Beet, Full-time carer

Catherine is very effective and works in a relaxed yet professional way. Highly recommended!
