To all my highly valued clients and potential ones
Well we have navigated many weeks of lockdown and maybe all sorts of feelings and reactions have surfaced both within yourself and your families. For all of us there has been change and that can be a challenge. But in these times we need a constant, people we know and trust, people who can hold the space with us and to that end I am still working online and still here for you, providing the space just for you.
The advice from the Complementary Therapy Association is currently that hands on work is not advised due to the close contact. As soon as I know more I will update you.
There have been some recent guidelines for preparation prior to returning to face to face sessions please have a look and read through here
Zoom,Skype and telephone calls have been hugely successful and clients have used this time for relaxation, for self care for pain due to headaches, RSI, arthritis, low back pain, sciatica etc or just to have space and time away from the family as someone independent to air concerns and anxiety or just to chat if they are alone.
Here are some testimonials from clients :-
“I’ve been a client of Deborah’s for several years – she has treated me (with massage) for back pain and also lower leg and feet problems. I would recommend her highly to anyone and everyone. Her professional treatments are given with kind thought and compassion and in that way are holistic in their approach thus aiding mind as well as body. Post treatment my body feels lighter and more flexible – a huge benefit to someone with poor flexibility.
Meanwhile even in this surreal time of lockdown Deborah’s care and kindness has not wavered as she has gone out of her way to try and give new “hands free” guidance to relive stiffness and pain.
Her interaction is always extremely client focussed and whatever your reason for consulting Deborah – you will feel better off for having done so.”
“I have had a number of sessions using Zoom with Deborah now, and they always leave me feeling more positive than when we started. The sessions allow me the space to take stock of how I am feeling both inside and out, then provide the tools to help me feel better.We have also worked through exercises, pressure points and stretches together. Deborah really takes her time to listen to what I need and adjusts any part of the stretch to make sure that it has the best possible result for my body. Afterwards, she sends a document with instructions and pictures for reference so that I can practice them regularly. I cannot express how grateful I am for the support of both body and mind, thank you Deborah!”
“I found the guided relaxation over the phone deeply relaxing. The timing was just right to concentrate on each part of the body in turn. Afterwards I felt the anxiety I had been holding onto had released and that night had a deep and refreshing night sleep”
“When Deborah suggested we keep in contact during my self isolation I wasn’t sure how it would work. However we did connect on the day and time we were due to have a therapy session. We chatted about how my family and I were coping with the lockdown and how the arthritis in my wrist was presenting. Deborah suggested she could show me how to effectively massage my own arm to relieve the pain and keep the wrist mobile, including warming up and cooling down exercises, she explained the technique and ensured I understood why and how it would help my problem whilst she was not able to carry out the therapy personally. Thank you Deborah for your care and patience”
If you are encountering pain in a specific area I can help advise you with face to face instructional for self care, stretches and breath work. Going forward self care and self regulation will keep you going and get you through the weeks ahead, the sessions are for you whatever you need at the time.
Fear has been shown to stimulate adrenaline reaction and the biochemical debris can remain in the body causing a build up of residue resulting in changes to the strength of the immune system, mood and behaviour changes. During these times it is even more vital to keep our life flow and energy flowing freely. We can self care simply connecting and taking time out can discharge the biochemical debris and restore balance, equilibrium and life energy.
Interacting through Zoom, Skype or telephone call allows:-
A time for you to connect and recharge
Time to breathe deeply and relax to strengthen your immune system
Time to quieten down using guided relaxation
Time to talk through any concerns
To check in regarding posture and exercises
I look forward to connecting with you, in the meantime be safe and blessed with good health and well-being,
Yours in health
