Annette has been my life saver over the many years she has provided me with her unique massages. Pain relief when even opiods haven't helped and an aid to my recovery following numerous surgeries. When suffering from neuropathic pain her massages have offered relief when even the touch of my clothing causes pain. Her massages have helped me gain a balance to live rather than simply survive with my conditions. A true angel who somehow knows instinctively where and how to treat. I always leave feeling lighter, pain free and in a happy daze. Having tried many types of alternative therapies and seen many massage therapists over the years, I wholeheartedly recommend Annette!
It is my opinion that healing of any nature best takes place when the body is in a state of deep rest and relaxation and this is precisely what a massage with Annette induces. My own complex long-standing health challenges (principally compromised joints caused by years of rheumatoid arthritis-induced chronic inflammation) have undoubtedly been helped by Annette's treatments. I cannot recommend Annette highly enough since whether you have an injury that is acute or chronic, or whether you simply feel in need of rejuvenating, you are sure to benefit in her skilled hands.
Following a prolonged period of inactivity due to severe sciatica, Annette helped me turn a corner to recovery for which I am so grateful. I had surgery to repair a prolapsed disc, followed by physio but progress was slow and I relied heavily on medication to manage the pain. I noticed significant improvement within a week of my first treatment with Annette - I cut my pain medication in half and was much more mobile.
I have been visiting Annette for several years for massage on my back, neck and shoulders. As well as being therapeutic, I always feel wonderfully relaxed by the end. Annette is extremely professional in her approach, always checking for any issues or problems before commencing a treatment. She is very knowledgeable and is able to pinpoint which area a particular muscle problem may be emanating from.
Since injuring my lower back a few years ago I regularly suffer from muscle spasms and stiffness. Fortunately, massages from Annette quickly right the problem and I am able to return to normal activity, and specifically tennis, within days.
Being into sports, and especially running, I find Annette's massages to be extremely effective in dealing with the occasional strain and generally keeping me injury free. She really knows what she's doing!
Excellent care and service. I feel I am listened to and the massage given is tailored to suit my needs. I never want the treatment to end but when I leave I am relaxed and calm. I thoroughly recommend a visit.
Visiting Annette is not a luxury, it's a necessity!
We all suffer from the stresses and strains of everyday life and often don't notice as it's just the way we live. When you have a therapy session with Annette she takes you away to a place where you feel safe, relaxed and whole again. She puts me back together.
On a regular basis she chases away the tensions and knots in my body with her magic fingers. I have also sent my husband and daughter for her professional, caring therapy.
We all have different needs and with Annette's inquiring and intuitive approach she has been able to improve all of our symptoms, and as a result our wellbeing.
You don't know just how in need of 'me time' you were until the treatment is over! Every village needs an Annette!
Annette's professionalism, knowledge and treatments have been a constant in my life for the last couple of years. She listens, is genuinely interested and concerned for ones wellbeing, and her treatments are always effective.
She has successfully helped to reduce my stress, address feelings of anxiety and tension, as well as treat muscular injuries and post-operative discomfort.
The cherry on the top is her proactive approach in researching one's injuries, aches and pains and advising on exercises which can be done at home to reinforce her treatments.
Annette has made a huge difference to my life and I wholly recommend her.
When going through a particularly emotional and stressful time, and struggling to cope with daily life, I found significant release through shiatsu massage. Regular sessions supported me through this period and I will always be grateful to Annette for the care she gave me.
I was first recommended to Annette when I moved to the area about 5 years ago and I, and my body, connected with her immediately! I am active in sports and have had various injuries over the years and Annette has sorted each one. She really understands your body on a different level to anyone I have ever been to before. I have complete trust in her expert knowledge and I now have a maintenance massage as often as I can. 100% recommended!
Whether it's to treat a specific injury or more often keep an injury at bay, I have found every treatment with Annette of benefit. I have suffered with lower back problems and tight neck and shoulder muscles for many years. Having noticed a tangible benefit from the first appointment, I would now not be without my visits to Annette. I have recommended her to many of my friends and will continue to do so!
I use Annette’s full body massage to relieve the stresses of living! After this fabulous, professional healing treatment I am completely relaxed and ready to face the world again.
I strongly recommend it for ANYONE!
Annette has a gift of healing hands. She intuitively knows which areas to work and after a massage I don't only feel relaxed, but also note an improvement in my overall wellbeing. I won't go to anyone else!
