About me

Feel stuck in life? Feeling frustrated or sad? Experiencing the same problems? Maybe you need Reiki or massage to release tension and strees.  The process starts by recharging blocked energy channels, working with the energy centres in the body to bring more peace, happiness and clarity to your life.

Reiki is a Japanese healing system channelling healing energy through the hands.  This process will release any blockages or imbalances in the body on all levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

I also offer Acupressure massage which is fantastic for releasing stress and bringing your life back into prospective. It focuses on the 12 meridian points in the body. Reiki and Massage work amazingly well together, bringing you suppleness along with serenity.Just one treatment can leave you with a profound sense of relaxation by experiencing a state of well-being, wholeness and inner peace.

The treatment is carried out by using a series of gentle hand positions placed from the head to the waist, channeling the energy through me. Soft music can be played to help you relax, with the room fragranced. A healing gong will chime before and after treatment to lock in the wonderful energies created.

Distant treatments - I also send Reiki to situations you made need help with or to people, as we are all connected and so Reiki can be sent to anyone or anywhere in the world.

I also treat animals as they need healing too. They have the same energy systems and Chakras just like us.

Testimonials -

'Received the Acupressure treatment from Melanie earlier this week for my recurring lower back pain and has all but gone. Along with a very relaxing Reiki session I cannot recommend Melanie enough (the power of a magician). Intending to have this treatment at the end of each month perfect remedy for my colitis condition, back pain and work stress (from working in the police). Melanie also has a very calming, patient and caring nature which adds to the therapy. Superb all round service!' Lee

'I'd never heard of Reiki until I was offered a treatment from Mel. I've now had a few treatments now & couldn't recommend it enough! It helped me through my pregnancy & to generally feel at ease with myself. I would highly recommend reiki to relax or help you through times of stress. Mel is a very professional practitioner & has an amazing ability.' Emma

'Thanks for the Reiki, it helped dissipate my tinnitus. I highly commend it as great therapy for Tinnitus sufferers.' Andrew

'Mel really helped me with reiki after my operation as well as being very relaxing...' Jacqui

'My first appointment with Melanie, I would describe as truly holistic in essence. Mel's qualities of compassion in my initial consultation and treatment, I felt greatly cared for and after the session, was left with a feeling of upliftment and serenity.
Mel is a warm hearted, joyful and radiant being in tune with nature and the universe. I highly recommend a treatment!' Mark

'Mel holds Olympic gold for excellence in Reki practice, no hesitation in recommending her...' Sharon

I had a Reiki session from Melanie earlier this week (my first since May this year unfortunately) due to having to have two operations in the last three months in my bowel due to Crohn's disease, I was left hospitalised and non-mobile. The Reiki session targeted the areas where I had received the most pain these past 7 months. I felt the heat/healing more profoundly in the areas where and it really helped in calming post hospital/operation internal pain. In addition it massively reduced the terrible stress and strain that I have undergone due to the surgery/ hospital operations. On top of the depression that I have had to cope with due to the sudden death of both my parents last year, the Reiki from Melanie has helped me destress, help me sleep better and calm the pain from recent surgery. I aim to have more Reiki from Melanie on a regular basis as it has helped me no end. In summary I would have found it extremely difficult to cope without it both mentally and physically. Melanie is excellent and very professional as always in terms of the treatment, advice and coping mechanisms all stemming from very effective Reiki treatments. Lee

'Professional, knowledgable, caring, wonderful practitioner. Always have a sense of peace and balance after a treatment with Mel. Highly recommended! Becky

'I had my first ever Reiki treatment from Mel this morning and I've had a really lovely day, I definitely felt the positive energy. And the acupressure massage really released the tension in my back! Thanks Mel!' Hannah

'Barney my 12 year old Border collie dog collapsed and became suddenly a quadriplegic. Barney went through a number of tests and xrays and had an operation without any diagnosis and, all his tests results were inconclusive. Barney's condition remained the same for at least a week. We took Barney to a small animal hospital. Melanie kindly offered to help with his recovery by providing some Reiki healing.
Mel asked for a photo and details of Barney, regarding his condition. She told me that she will send Reiki healing to Barney that night. The next day I went to visit Barney in hospital and was surprise to see him standing and walking with helpers on a harness. It was an amazing sight to see such a major improvement in his condition! The vet told me that he had a tumor on the spine and didn't need any surgery as it was shrinking by itself.
Barney is now home and getting stronger by the day. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mel so much for what you have done! Keep up the good work by helping others.' Tony
