About me

I am a very experienced complementary therapist working as a full time therapist for over 16 years offering a number of natural therapies from Renaissance Natural Therapy Centre. I am based at Renaissance Natural Therapy centre, situated just off Harborne High Street.

I specialise in providing care and support for all the ‘joys of womanhood’ from puberty to menopause, with a special interest in Fertility and Pregnancy.

The therapies available are Reproflexology (Fertility Reflexology), Maternity Reflexology, Reiki Mama, Aromatherapy/Swedish Massage, Bowen Therapy, Reflexology, Hopi Ear Candles, Hot Stone Massage and Reiki Healing.

Many physical ailments may be addressed by these therapies and also they may be effective for relieving symptoms of stress. It is believed by many (myself included) that most illness, disease, and chronic conditions are related in some way to stress and anxiety. The therapies I provide can all help reduce stress and anxiety as well as often helping with the resultant symptoms. Having the time to talk and relax may even give some people the space to realise how to get to the root cause of their stress and form coping strategies.

I have been practising as a full time therapist for over 16 years. I am very lucky as many people dream of changing their career and I am living the dream! It is so wonderful to be able to be involved treating clients instead of doing insurance.

I am convinced of the many benefits of complementary therapies and I can vouch for this from a personal perspective. I have quite a complicated medical history and I am convinced that if I did not have the support of the therapies (and the therapists!) I would not be as well as I am now.

Testimonials

"I've suffered with knee problems for a while (probably most of my adult life actually) and recently this got worse. I thought I'd let Hilary work her Bowen magic on me, to see what it was all about and to see if it would help. The session itself was really relaxing and I found myself drifting off a few times.

After the session I didn't really think about it until a little over a week later when realised that I had been completely pain free since. The only thing that I had done differently over this time was having the Bowen treatment and so this can be the only explanation for my improvement.

I would genuinely recommend Hilary and Bowen and I will definitely be returning should the need arise." Richard, Birmingham

"I've seen Hilary for many years for massage, reflexology etc but recently I have being suffering with acute sinusitis. Hilary recommended Hopi Ear Candles and Bowen, yesterday I had both whilst in an acute phase. I walked in in such pain and left feeling relief, today I feel better still. I will be booking in for a full Bowen treatment soon. Thanks Hilary." Lisa, Birmingham

"I have been visiting Hilary at Renaissance for 5 years. She has a lovely warm and friendly nature, and I immediately felt at ease with her. So much so, after a few visits when I found out I was pregnant, I was happy to continue visiting her for reflexology and aromatherapy massage treatments.

I’m now a full time Mother to 2 boys and it is even more important that I continue to visit her, so I can have a bit of me time. Her treatments aren’t just beneficial, I find them essential.

Whether you visit in for an Indian head massage or decide to go for the full body aromatherapy hot stones massage, you will not be disappointed and you will leave feeling relaxed, pampered and ready to face the challenges of the day." Rachel, Edgbaston

"I've had a recurring lower back problem - probably due to the fact that I'm now too old to play squash against fit 17 year old lads! In September I hurt my back and it wasn't right for around 6 weeks. Although it was no longer painful(other than when I tried to run) there was a constant ache and I was unable to jog or do aerobics. It was certainly having an impact on my life and meant giving up squash, aerobics, gym etc for this time. I'd had sports massage, rubbed 'Deep Heat' on it, put ice on it, was given exercises to do by my Pilates teacher - but nothing would take away this dull ache. In desperation I looked at other possible treatments which may help. I came to see Hilary for a Bowen to see if that would have any affect on it. As I lay on the couch on my back Hilary noticed that one foot fell to the side more than the other and that in actual fact my hips were out of alignment. I had no idea and evidently many people suffer from this without being aware. She tweaked a muscle in my leg to realign it all and as soon as she did this the ache went away - and stayed away! I couldn't believe how effective such a little movement could be. I would really recommend that if you do have a problem with your lower back that you get your hip alignment checked. It really made all the difference to me!" Jane, Edgbaston

"I'd always been aware of the benefits of aromatherapy but never tried it out until some years ago I was given a Mother's Day gift of a voucher for a back massage - no excuse not to try. The slight anxiety and all the questions such as, what will it be like, will it be embarrassing, what is expected, all vanished with the warm, relaxed and friendly welcome that is Renaissance. Thoughts afterwards as I floated home - Why haven't I been before? - No aches or stiffness, feeling three inches taller and I can move my shoulders, who cares what's for tea!

Now about once a month (once a day if I could) I have 'Me Time' - in a little lavender haven, talk or not talk, listening to calming music, surrounded by beautiful scents (picked out just for you), melt into the couch, all the stresses of daily life smoothed away - only downside is having to get up afterwards.

A visit to Hilary at Renaissance is now very much part of my routine for keeping fit and healthy; since going for regular sessions I've noticed the difference, with reduced aches and stiffness  as well as increased mobility, especially in my shoulders. I'm much more aware of my posture and notice how restricted I become when my back and shoulders become stiff, because I've missed a session.

Renaissance is one of those places you might not notice unless looking for it or might wonder about as you walk past, I strongly suggest next time, you stop and take a look. There's so much on offer it would be difficult not to find a therapy to suit, all offered with no obligation so you don't feel pressured, it's un-pretentious, so you won't worry if you haven't got Janet Reger undies (just as long as they’re clean!) All the therapists I've met there are professional in a friendly, reassuring manner - just what you need to put you at ease." Tina, Harborne

"I have been seeing Hilary for about 18 months to improve my personal wellbeing using natural techniques. I have found that the basic 1 hour reflexology sessions have been the most beneficial for me in taking away stress and anxiety of the modern world to feel an inner calm and balance." Caroline, Harborne

"A hard day's 'strimming' resulting in a tweaked lower back, turned into agony over the three following days. Rest and as many painkillers as I dared to take, had no effect ­ in fact, the pain got worse. As a 'homeopathic agnostic', I took some persuading to try Renaissance, but suffering desperately, I arranged an appointment for a Bowen Treatment with Hilary.

This was not really at all what I expected... no joint-cracking manipulation, just a gentle adjustment to various parts of my anatomy and a pause for, as Hilary said, "my body to get used to the idea". I left Hilary feeling no better and convinced that I was probably well into the process of a lingering and painful demise! When I got up next morning, I was cured!" KW, Harborne
