What clients say about our therapists and services...
“Clare’s classes and approach to Hypnobirthing were eye-opening, for both me and my partner. The classes helped us with our planned home birth, and we are very much looking forward to that! We feel really prepared for every circumstance, and we really loved our sessions. Clare is superb and really made us feel at ease, talking us through every step of the way from the beginning. Really interesting from a male perspective too, totally recommended for both mum and dads.”

"I had been looking around for a Sports Massage Therapist for sometime and when Tessa was mentioned to me - I thought I'd give it a go. Wow! I am so pleased that I did. I do high intensity training 5 times per week and I was full of aches, pains and knots and, and, and...... With her sensitivity and natural ability Tessa was able to listen to what I was telling her but also really tuned into my body and knew when and where to focus. With a mixture of massage and acupuncture I come out of each session with a spring in my step, rejuvenated and 'raring to go'. The quality of my training has significantly improved. Thoroughly recommended!" Nicole Marais - Psychotherapist, Life Coach and triathlete
"I went to see Tessa Glover on the advice of a cyclist friend who knew I'd been suffering from an upper shoulder/back pain for a few weeks. Nothing I'd managed to do could shift it - rest was also not working! I saw Tessa twice - and after just the first visit the pain was 80% reduced. She pinpointed what was wrong swiftly, dealt with the areas contributing but crucially gave me the knowledge I needed to better understand what was wrong - which often is I think such an important part of the cure. I'd recommend anyone to see her, she's excellent and her manner on top of it all is comforting and re-assuring and deeply knowledgeable." Ceri Barnes, Producer.
"With Philippa I have struck gold. Magical hands."
Neck pain client, aged 67 (Tuina massage and acupuncture)
"During the emotional highs and lows and sometimes confusing period of fertility treatment and early pregnancy, I have really valued the time and space of my sessions with Philippa - the chance to talk through certain things in more detail and in a more personalised way than with the doctors, as well as the time to slow down and reflect on myself and my body. I am sure the acupuncture treatments themselves have helped me conceive on a first cycle of IVF, but have really valued the whole therapy session around the acupuncture, and the care and sympathy of Philippa’s treatment."
Fertility client, aged 41
"I suffered for years with horrendous migraines, which were so bad I would need to take regular time off work. After 6 sessions of acupuncture they began to ease and after 2 months they stopped. I have not had a migraine now for 6 months.” Migraine client, aged 45
“Philippa played a crucial role in the lead up to my conception. Despite having polycystic ovaries I conceived quickly and naturally. Philippa’s calm, reassuring manner, considered treatment and advice eased my concerns and helped remove stress and anxiety from the process” - Pregnancy client, aged 34
“Phillipa has excellent listening skills and has been a major support, helping me manage a long term chronic condition, improve my health and consequently reduce my medication. Acupuncture reduces my pain, helps me sleep and gives me more energy - a brilliant result! “ Lupus client, aged 54
"I have started doing yoga with Yinka in January 2016. I was suffering with lower back pain and sciatica. Yinka with her expertise and her caring way, is able to tailor her Yoga classes with each person individual needs. Yinka makes a yoga class accessible to everyone. The classes are small with maximum of 6 people. I am now able to do things I wasn't able to do before, I feel a lot stronger, healthier and a lot happier about myself. I would recommend yoga with Yinka to anyone that loves yoga."
(R.S West norwood)
"Two years ago, I was admitted into St George’s Hospital due to excruciating back pain. I was given 4 different types of pain killers to take every 2 hours and discharged. The pain persisted - I was still in agony. I decided to go to a private clinic in Victoria. There was still no improvement. I came across Yinka in West Norwood and finally, the pain has subsided. Yinka is so very empathetic, kind, knowledgable, and has given me wonderful advice about how I can improve my condition from home. Had it not been for her, I am certain that I wouldn’t even be able to walk by now. Thank you so much for everything!" B.

“Thanks so much for my treatment last night miss e. It was just what the dr ordered-a combination of your magic therapeutic hands & your amazing listening skill. I felt so much more relaxed after, both physically & mentally. So I’ll try not to leave it too long until the next one!.”
(Kelly, May 2018)
