Valina is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. We connected immediately. What is special about her is that you can completely trust that she is fully present with you every time she coaches you. It is a joy to speak to a coach who has her degree of presence and intuition. She was able to see through the story I was telling her, by recognising and challenging my underlying blocks/fears, and was able to reconnect me with my passion. On many occasions she has been able to reconnect me to my values and focus my scattered mind to what actually matters. I have complete trust in her investment in me and my growth, and in her confidentiality. This means that I feel safe exploring the parts of myself that are difficult to explore alone under her guidance. She never fails is direct me to new insights about myself and my life, which inevitably lead to a feeling of growth and progress and joy. Thank you Valina

Coach Valina, you are a high-power coach. My experience with you was simply transformational. Every session I had with you, helped me to uncover my hidden potentials and reach new heights in my life. You helped me to resolve some serious crisis with my partners and we became a team from just business partners. You helped with my relationship and filled it with passion. You held my hands and made me walk through barriers I imagined, and I was able to take the best decision yet in my career. Thank you, Coach, you are a real magician with your empowering questions and intuition.

Being a person who nearly believes in paranormal but always found coaching a somewhat unreliable, manipulative type of a treatment, I could not imagine trying myself, I had to swallow my words when I met Valina. I witnessed her achieving the goal to become a life coach; not only was I inspired by her journey and the hard work she put into it, but also, I was given a wonderful opportunity to participate in a few sessions myself. And how happy and thankful I am it happened! After our very first session, we both saw and felt quite an immense change, it was transformative; I was feeling much better mentally, even physically. Being able to open up without feeling embarrassed or misjudged, feeling so comfortable and comforted is a main key to find, face and start dealing with the issues which were weighing my shoulders down for years. The calm, pressure-free yet empowering approach and techniques Valina uses, help me up to this day and will do in the foreseeable future.

Valina gently but assertively guided me from feeling stuck and limited, to reaching for my dream in a very short space of time. She gave me practical goals to get me there and a no judgment, level of support with a very complicated family dynamic. She taught me to break out of my negativity bias and to ask for what i truly want. I thought I had to quit the job to reach the dream and it turned out that I could have both. I now write this sitting in the Swedish countryside, having cultivated the work / life / creative balance I have always yearned for.

I went to Leon with a back problem that has troubled me for years. In a single session he identified the problem and gave me some exercises to work with at home. He didn\'t tell me that I needed to come back for a follow up, but left it to me to contact him if I felt the need. That single session has completely changed my attitude to my back. I\'m no longer terrified when I feel it twinge that if I carry on exercising to keep fit it will lead to long term disaster. I now turn to the exercises he gave me to settle it and carry on. Brilliant.

Leon is a brilliantly skilled Osteopath. Whilst making you feel very cared for he also articulates what he is working on to help us understand our bodies better. As a dancer he is aware of the demands on the body and works with you to bring about ultimate function and comfort in movement, also suggesting exercises to do outside of the therapy room so you have knowledge to take away with you. Couldn\'t recommend enough

So pleased to have found Leon. Whether it’s pain from stress, sport or long standing creakiness he’s always been able to help. I like his friendly and focused approach. An inspired and very effective osteopath.

Leon is a genius osteopath, intuitive and effective. I was recommended by a friend and I’ve been coming back since, I notice the biggest difference right away. Highly recommend

I had the most fantastic craniosacral treatment with Mattea last weekend. She quickly identified various niggles I\\\'d been experiencing and really helped ease the stiffness and pain in my lower back and hip. The treatment was profoundly relaxing and re-energising at the same time, and I have slept much better this week. Mattea has such a gentle, calm manner too, which adds to the relaxing experience. Highly recommended!
Thanks Caroline, I will pass on your kind words to Mattea.

Can’t recommend Marian Fixler enough! I have received acupuncture from her to help me cope with a difficult time in my life and she has helped me unbelievable amounts! She also ran a group tapping session which was really powerful and gave me a tool to use daily to cope with general anxiety. Will definitely continue to see her!
Thanks Felicity, will pass on your kind words

Ana has been very good at teaching me shiatsu on my son who has Asperger's/ADHD. He finds it relaxing and can sleep better after the shiatsu. Its a nice bond between me and him and makes the bedtime routine special. Ana has been patient and good at explaining what we are going to do and why we do it. She has a wealth of knowledge and is happy to pass it on to parents to help their children relax. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. - Brigitta, mum, London

I met Jade a year ago when I was looking for someone who specialises in a holistic practice and found exactly what I was looking for. Jade's sensitive and consultative approach before each treatment helps to pinpoint the area(s) of focus each time, and as a result the treatment becomes tailored and responsive to what is occurring in my body. She has helped me relieve my stress levels, enhance my energy levels, address areas of tension in my back, and find a deeper sense of relaxation and grounding. She has a wonderful ability to tune in to the body and this connection enables it to be a fundamentally valuable part of my preventative health strategy. Whether you wish to focus on one issue or generally support your wellbeing, I would unequivocally recommend engaging Jade – Evelyn , London

'I have spent dollars on remedial massage, Ayuverdic massage etc but have to say after all this time I have found the BEST masseuse in London - if you have £70.00 or thereabouts and can get to Shine - Lisa de Liema is a sensitive, awake, seriously trained and gifted masseuse - the hot stone treatment is pure heaven and you will feel renewed beyond all expectation! www.lisadeliema.com!'

Wanted to let you all know of Lisa - expert in chronic + relaxing hot stone massage. Well worth a visit - she's helping me overcome a 10 year old repetitive iPhone use shoulder injury. Superb massage - one the best I've ever had (and I've had loads).

Sarah Warman - Alexander Technique I first met Sarah about two years ago, when I went along for an introductory Alexander Technique session. I had had some previous experience of AT with another teacher some years ago, and as I was having problems with headaches and tension in my neck and shoulders, I thought it would be beneficial for me to explore it again. I felt an immediate connection with Sarah, and I was delighted to find that her unique style resonated so positively with me. I particularly like her holistic approach to her work - recognising the interconnection between our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual sides. I have not experienced AT like this before, and yet it makes so much sense, and it has been of such benefit to me. Arriving for a session with Sarah feels like stepping out of the hustle and bustle and into a peaceful oasis, where I can allow time for myself and have the space to be myself. This is hugely valuable to me in my hectic life. I would recommend Sarah wholeheartedly. She is very supportive and works with empathy and understanding. Through her, I have learned some wonderful techniques to help me through my life, and have gained so many unexpected insights. SV Classical Musician/Singer

Mattea has treated me for a number of years and really is a magician! I came to see Mattea on Sunday to help me with persistent lower back and leg pain, as well as a general sense of being "out of sorts" and lacking energy. She is immensely intuitive and very skilled at establishing what the most effective treatment or combination of approaches will be - in this case, a combination of hands-on massage with powerful cranio-sacral therapy straightened out my back, relieved the pain and gave me a much-needed energy boost. She has a wonderfully sympathetic and gentle manner. Many thanks Mattea!
