After twelve years studying and practising Kung Fu, Roland became fascinated by the internal side of the martial art and thus started to undertake practices of Tai Chi and Qi Gong. In using breath control and movement to influence the flow of Qi throughout the body, he noticed a huge improvement in his own health and well-being. He was astounded by the change, and that fascination led him to a career in acupuncture.
Having trained for four years at the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, affiliated with Kingston University, he qualified with a BSc (Hons) degree and a Licentiate of Acupuncture (LicAc) and is now a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC).
Roland’s integrated acupuncture style of Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats the root energetic imbalance that is influencing mental, physical and spiritual well-being, whilst also being able to treat the presenting symptom(s). Such an approach allows treatment to focus on mind, body and spirit, and to centre in on the individual, not just the illness.
Acupuncture can help with a wide range of conditions, from general feelings of low energy and poor health, to specific conditions such as Chronic Pain, Anxiety, Stress, IBS, PMS, Menopausal Syndrome, among others.
Bengali Massage & Hanna Somatics
Cat trained as a massage therapist in 2003 and travelled to India seeking a true master of therapeutic massage. She was incredibly lucky to have her hopes fulfilled and exceeded; learning the amazing and magical technique that she now calls Bengali massage. She has worked full-time offering this treatment since 2006. This is a dynamic full body treatment that gently releases and dissipates the tension and holding habits of the muscles, often caused by underlying emotional, mental or physical issues.
Deep Tissue Massage
Kat is a qualified massage therapist offering Holistic and Deep Tissue massage since 1997. Holistic massage draws on a number of techniques from many traditions including Swedish Massage, combining them with the massage therapist’s sensitivity, to meet the needs of each individual as a whole. This means whether you are looking for a deep relaxation, relief from pain or to be left feeling revitalised and renewed this massage is for you.
Shanti is a very passionate and dedicated therapist, inventive and cheerfully determined to work out the mysteries of each individual’s muscular make up. She has a natural gift of reading people’s bodies, and helps to manage and ameliorate various different aches and tensions. She brings an innate kindness and open sense of humour to her treatments, ensuring that her clients feel incredibly at ease and able to relax. Sessions begin with a brief conversation, so that she can get to know and better understand your needs.
Sophie qualified as a Holistic Massage Therapist in 2013 with BCMB.
Sophie’s approach to massage stems from a holistic idea of working with the client to aid and relieve tension, be it physical or emotional. Whilst everyone’s needs are different, she focuses on specific areas of the body whilst bringing elements of the whole into the massage.
Inner Alchemy – Transformational Hypnotherapy Trance Work
Jessica is a Clinical Hypnotherapist and the founder of Inner Alchemy, a therapeutic approach based on interactive Hypnosis Trance Work and Deep Imagery Work. Jess combines these techniques with EFT Tapping, an energy psychology technique which helps these shifts take place both in mind and body.
Society and life are changing faster now than ever before, and it can be hard to find the time and space to give ourselves the chance to make meaning of it all. Difficult relationships and trauma can hold us back from who we really are, and it can be confusing to know where to turn. Janet believes that the process of therapy can help us learn to understand ourselves and, as a result, look after ourselves better.
Mel has been practicing reflexology for almost ten years, having trained with nurse and reflexologist Jane Holt at the South Devon School of Reflexology in 2008.
Reflexology is a form of Chinese medicine, based on similar theory as acupuncture. By kneading, massaging and soothing specific points in the feet, we are able to work the entire body, bringing about a state of homeostatis (balance).
Rolfing® Structural Integration
Gravity is the one constant that we are all navigating. If we are adaptable and stable (therefore balanced) in relation to this force we feel open, energised, resilient. This ability to continually respond to gravity in order to stay upright, alongside the way we habitually move, is what shapes our body to give us the posture that we move through life with. Rolfing® Structural Integration works to bring balance to the body in order for it to more efficiently negotiate this downward force of gravity through a method of tissue, movement, and perceptual education that works directly with the body’s connective tissue network.
