Welcome to Woodland Health and Beauty
Owned by Holistic Therapist Michele Hancock IIHHT VTCT Dip MICHT CIMI
Woodland Health and Beauty was born in January 2001 with a vocational need to help people to a way back to health and happiness. Michele began her training within the Reiki system in 1999 and quickly realised that the key to returning to and maintaining health was found within the mind and body connection. So she decided to offer this as a solution within a multi disciplinary based therapies and training establishment.
With over 12 years experience Michele offers an individual service focusing on your needs. Michele is passionate about Reiki and will happily add this into all of her other treatments offered, due its balancing and calming effect. Michele has undertaken training in the following:
Hot Stone Massage
Indian Head Massage
Indian Champissage (natural face lift) Facial Massage
Reiki Treatments and Training
Hopi Ear Candling
Thai Herbal Treatments
Neuro Linguistic Programming and Timeline Therapy TM
Baby Massage Instruction.
She constantly keeps herself updated within the field of modern complimentary medicine, adding new therapies and ways to achieve balance.
She runs regular Reiki training courses and self development workshops in a tranquil, calm and supportive meditation room.
What is Complementary or Holistic Therapy?
The basic principle of any complementary therapy should be “holistic” which means the whole person i.e. mind, body and spirit. Holistic healing is concerned with looking into the causes and prevention of illness rather than the symptoms.
The term holistic is derived form a Greek word meaning "Whole”. Conventional medicine tends to focus on the symptom or the part of the body that has the problem whilst the holistic approach takes into account the whole person. It is understood that the body has a vital life force and when this becomes out of balance - disease can take a hold. The aim of holistic therapy is to restore the balance of this vital life force and help the body heal itself naturally.
So a complementary or holistic therapist looks at the complete lifestyle of the person requiring help; diet and nutrition, amount of exercise taken, home environment, occupation or type of employment, relationships with family, leisure pursuits and very importantly attitude to life in general.
Treatments such as Aromatherapy, Reiki and Reflexology can help to redress the balance by enabling a person to relax deeply, to let go of all their worries and find a solution within.

"I have visited Woodland Health and Beauty many times over the last few years and have always found the treatments quite extraordinary. Michele has an uncanny ability to get to the root of the problem and has always managed to help, and has always offered post-treatment support when needed." L Toynbee Hertford
"I've had great results with my depression and endometriosis with regular reflexology treatments." J S St Albans
"I first went to Woodland Health and Beauty three years ago when my daughter was very unwell with anaemia and eating problems. I can honestly say that reiki was the one thing that she found truly helpful, (we tried acupuncture and cognitive behavioural therapy, and appointments with the doctor). I started to use the service regularly myself, initially to deal with the stress of having an ill daughter. I enjoyed it and found it beneficial, so continued, and have found over the years that reiki and reflexology have allowed me to identify and deal with problem areas in my own life. What makes Woodland Health and Beauty special is that you feel cared for from the minute you walk in, you never feel judged or pressurised, and you come out looking forward to the next session." P J Standstead Abbots
"I first went to see Michele at Woodland Health Beauty for a Reiki session and have now also had Indian Massages and Reflexology. I must say that after seeing Michele, anyone else just pales in comparison and even though I've moved to South London I still travel to Woodland Health and Beauty for the far superior experience and care. Michele is a naturally gifted therapist and as soon as you arrive you feel like you are in another world miles away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Always professional yet incredible intuitive and caring, Michele seems to know just what I need and genuinely cares about the people she treats. I always leave feeling like a new person and can't wait to return for my next session." R A D London
"I have been going regularly to Woodland Health & Beauty now for almost a year for my bit of pampering. It is like finding a little sanctuary on your doorstep. The treatments are such good value & I always look forward to going. Michele is always bubbly, friendly & caring whilst professional at the same time. She makes that extra effort & pays attention to detail. The whole set-up (room, lighting, oils & music) just sets the tone perfectly. The wonderful array of treatments are carried out superbly which all adds to the overall great experience & you are left feeling like you can just float right out of there! I have sampled several & would highly recommend every one of them, especially the hot stones - they are fabulous." LH – Hertford
"I have been going to Michele for well over a year now for reflexology and reiki. The treatments always leave me feeling relaxed, nurtured and rejuvenated. Michele has helped me overcome a great amount of stress and grief and has also helped me get pregnant! I can't recommend her highly enough; she's so friendly and caring. Now as a new mum it's such a treat going to her sessions." SJ - Ware
"Michele has a natural warmth about her; she is professional, efficient and has a deep knowledge of holistic therapies. I have used Michele for reflexology and reiki at a very troubled time in my life, after just one session I felt relaxed and more at ease. I would not hesitate to use Michele again and I have certainly recommended and raved about her to all my friends. Michele is an exceptional person with a natural gift backed up with a deep knowledge; This is not an experience you will get with a therapist on the high street.
I feel nurtured and relaxed after my time with Michele, I can't wait for my next treatment." JK Cheshunt
"I was given Michele's name by a friend who had recommended her to me. I went to see her initially for reflexology which I find really relaxing. However she so talented at so many treatments I now go for a variety of treatments and whether you are spending £6 or £60 you are a much valued client." EP Welwyn Garden City
"Michele is an exceptional therapist, whether you are going in for a quick eyebrow tint or undergoing a course of treatment for a more serious condition you will not be disappointed. I never hesitate to recommend her and her healing hands. I can highly recommend the facials and reflexology treatments." HC Hertford
