Helen was recommended to me by a friend/pilates teacher who had seen me struggle in yoga recently to find alignment.  I knew my hip was hurting and my back was sore but wasn’t sure why.  In my first treatment, Helen spent a good deal of time listening to me and trying to understand what I was feeling.  She asked me to show her where I was struggling and also asked when we would know if things had changed following treatment.  I saw Helen 4 times in total and as well as gently working towards our goal of alignment she also treated me for a trapped nerve in my neck (a result of a long term disc issue).  Each time she was gentle but firm in her hands on treatment but also explained exactly what she was doing, why, and gave me exercises to practice at home.
After 4 treatments, I was able to do the yoga pose we’d identified as an illustration of the pain and difficulty I had been experiencing previously and we agreed that I didn’t need any more sessions.  I would feel very confident going back to Helen if necessary and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a solution to issues that they haven’t managed to address elsewhere.
