“Earlier this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Following surgery I underwent five months chemotherapy. I decided to try complementary therapies as they are non invasive and were also recommended by the hospital. Initially I visited Rita to have Massage to help me through the emotional and physical aspects of the treatment. Rita was so helpful and understanding, she created a relaxed environment for the treatment which was painless.
During the treatment we spent time discussing how I was feeling, sometimes we would try a meditation together, or simply be still and quiet. Afterwards I felt totally relaxed and more in control to face the chemotherapy. I have not had to be hospitalised during chemotherapy and have coped well with any side effects.
I am currently having Radiotherapy and still visiting Rita for Reflexology and Reiki. I believe that healing starts from within and complementary therapies help to heal and support you along the path to recovery.
I would like to thank Rita for her empathy she is an excellent therapist and will be a friend forever. Rita has an extensive knowledge of complementary therapies and gives so much to her clients. I would not hesitate to recommend her, especially to anyone in the same position”. Gail Newton, Yoga Teacher and Nurse
I went to see Rita in absolute desperation due to a phobia which was ruining my life; she helped me overcome the problem in just a matter of weeks. My fears were eliminated and my confidence quickly returned with hypnotherapy and some coaching. I am so grateful. Margaret Bacup, Lancs.
"Before visiting Rita I felt that I was alone, I was having trouble sleeping and couldn’t bear the silence. My confidence was low and I was unable to speak to anyone about my issues, the problem spilled into my relationships and my work. I finally went to see Rita and she instantly made me feel at ease, and I was able to get to the bottom of things with her. Rita used Hypnotherapy, NLP and the Bach Flower Remedies and within a few short weeks my confidence began to grow and I began dealing with my issues. People around me have noticed a big difference in me and I can continue to help myself by using the techniques that Rita has shown me, that help me cope better with my life and relax. I actually enjoy being by myself now. My relationship with my partner has improved and we are trying for a baby. My treatment with Rita has changed due to this and I am now having Reflexology to help me conceive". Lisa.
"At 41 weeks and two days pregnant, I had been advised by my midwife that I would need to be induced by 42 weeks but that would mean that I would not be alloud to have my much wanted home birth. I contacted Rita who advised me that Reflexology would be a safe and natural way to help.
I had only one session which lasted an hour and was home only 45 minutes when my waters broke, and 4 and a half hours later my daughter was born.
Rita I cant thank you enough for all your help." C.D.
" I went to Rita for Reflexology to try and encourage my overdue baby to put in an appearance. I had reflexology on Wednesday and baby arrived on Saturday, the reflexology helped ease my aches and pains and I definatley felt more relaxed I had previously been getting wound up thinking about an induction. Rita also told me points to help myself for example where to massage to ease the pain when your milk comes in - the area on my feet was actually swollen and rubbing my feet eased the discomfort, I certainly would not have noticed this otherwise. I also noticed an improvement in my sense of smell - usually very poor! If I had known how much it would help in pregnancy I would have gone sooner and I will be going back when I have some free time!! ." Sharon
