"I cannot recommend Sarah’s 6 week course enough. On a practical level, I feel like I have tools for life, on an emotional level I feel excited and more positive for the future and on a mental level I have learned so much! I have come away feeling emotionally and mentally stronger and celebratory! Our bodies are amazing, we just need to know how to nourish them. Sarah teaches you this in a loving, accepting and non-judgemental way."

The symptoms of perimenopause, had gradually crept up on me; forgetfulness, ‘brain fog’, difficulty sleeping and generally feeling a bit low and out of sorts, but as I was waiting for changes in my menstrual cycle to trigger the start of menopause, I simply brushed them off.

Then following a big change in my career, I started to struggle. I didn’t think I was picking things up quickly enough, started questioning my ability and whether I was good enough for my new job, and this spiralled into anxiety and a big dip in self-confidence. I felt like I was losing my positive and happy self and was scared of the woman I was turning into! Following what I can only describe as a distressing visit to the GP, who with one eye on her PC and the other on the clock, helpfully advised me to Google to determine the best option for me – either HRT or anti-depressants – and then let her know, I turned to Sarah for advice.

When we started talking, all the bottled up emotions and worries came out like a tsunami! Sarah listened, empathised, passed me tissues and managed to convince me I wasn’t going mad! She explained the biology behind my symptoms, to assure me what I was feeling was caused by a physical chemical imbalance and it wasn’t ‘all in my head’. I can’t explain the relief I felt.

Sarah didn’t write off HRT as a possible solution and she explained the pros and cons, but most importantly we discussed what other options I had. For the past eight months at Sarah’s recommendation, I’ve been taking 100% natural remedies and I feel like a new woman – actually that’s wrong, I feel like myself again!!

I’ve regained control of all aspects of my life and Sarah plays an essential part in my well-being. We check in regularly to make sure my treatment continues to be effective. If I need to go on HRT further down the line, I’ll be able to make that decision in an informed way, but in the meantime I’m happy relying on the natural remedies that Sarah has recommended and the support she is giving me.”

"I am so, so happy that I found Sarah! She has changed my life. I went to Sarah after being recommended to her for problems in my neck and shoulders. I had a car accident in 2014 and a cycle accident in 2016 which caused trauma to the area. I underwent physiotherapy and spinal realignment. This only provided me with a short term solution. I often suffered with severe headaches and migraines to the point that it disabled me. The pain was excruciating and over time I learned to live with it. At the beginning of 2018 I decided to start up fitness again as it is one of my favourite things to do. This soon set off my neck and shoulders in a way that I had never experienced before. For several months I could not turn my head, get up from laying down, roll over in bed, drive etc. I sought more treatment which only masked it. I spent forever applying gels, heat treatment, cold treatment and super strong painkillers such as Tramadol and Cocodamol. When I went to Sarah she allowed me to tell her exactly how I was feeling and where the pain was. Through talking to her in the initial consultation she spoke about Vitali-Chi. I had never heard of this and was very sceptical when she began explaining what it was. I was willing to give anything a try to get my life back. I booked myself on for 6 week course of Vitali-Chi Massage and oh my god! The first massage was so painful! I I still used various treatments but by the third Vitali-Chi treatment I did not need to take any medication for pain, I hadn’t suffered with any headaches, I was participating in light fitness and began to feel hopeful.

Along with the massage Sarah also helped me with my well being. I lead a very busy, hectic and stressful lifestyle as I run my own company and did not realise the pressures it was putting on my body. I now feel more cool, calm and collected and don’t snap at the smallest things thanks to Vitali-Chi. She tailored my treatments to treat anxiety, stress etc. Alongside this I began doing breathe and relax yoga as well as listening to a script made by Sarah and followed her advice on separating my work life from home life. It became the best habit. I would get in get unchanged, do yoga and listen to the script then I would relax in my home life. I now go to the gym 3 times a week and do cardio on 3 other days and one rest day. I can safely say I do not suffer with any pain, headaches and have not needed any form of medication since that third session. I was so close to the edge when I met Sarah and now I feel like a whole new person. Sarah is amazing and so friendly and I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you for giving me my life back!"

"I feel Sarah has played an important part in helping me to make some positive changes to improve my health and well-being and getting me back to feeling my best. I would highly recommend Sarah and the treatments she can provide. Sarah has created a warm, relaxing and tranquil environment to run her business. During the initial consultation, she takes time to understand and gives you the opportunity to discuss any life challenges that may have an effect on your well-being. This helped to instil trust and made me feel very comfortable talking through several health and emotional concerns, and Sarah has given me some helpful and beneficial advice, as well as an effective, personalised treatment plan"
