The beast is in! After months of tearing my hair out I have finally finished my dissertation.... the culmination of 3 years of study.. I chose a topic close to my heart as I have personal experience of the condition... it’s all about the treatment of post-partem mastitis using Acupuncture. There is so little awareness of the amazing effects treatment can have that it was great to shine a light on the subject. Having mastitis can be so debilitating, painful and emotionally challenging for mums who just want to feed their new baby! Hopefully my little study can help other practitioners wanting to treat the condition and make others aware of how useful treatment can be.

The last few weeks have been full on and if I’m honest I have had a few moments of wondering what the blinkin heck have we have got ourselves into!! But then there are days like today. When you realise that you basically live on a constant holiday by the sea. Surrounded by amazing countryside and being able to nip to the Beach or go crabbing in the sunshine whenever you fancy it. It’s amazing how you can put a smile back on your face by focusing on what you are grateful for.. #gratitude #familylove #devon #devondream #southdevon #crabbing #positivevibes #changeisgood
Sorry me again... this month we are trying to raise awareness of reflexology and how fantastic it is to help relieve tension, stress, anxiety and promote sleep and circulation. It is such a powerful treatment and whenever I treat a new client they cannot believe how great they feel and how effective it is. So we are also offering taster sessions at The Haven in Ashburton, 30mins for £15!!! This will hopefully mean more people get to try it out for themselves. We are taking bookings for the 12th May so if you fancy giving it a try please let me know! #reflexology #footreflexology #reflexologymassage #therapist #devon #ashburton #southdevon #wellbeing #holistichealth #holistichealing

Not a pretty picture to look at but blimey I feel so much better after my lovely friend working with me in the clinic treated my cold symptoms with some Guasha...it’s an ancient Chinese technique that amongst other things can be used to treat Cold Syndrome. The simple scraping method focuses on moving Qi and Blood and the Sha (redness of spots) shows the movement of Qi and Blood and throws out old Blood and releases the Cold. This simple treatment has got me through the day and kept me upright!! Phew! Now I just need to keep covered and warm in this cold windy weather! #acupunctureworks #acupuncture #holistichealth #holistichealing #balance #mindandbody #chinesemedicine #fiveelements #wellbeing #therapist #therapistlife
How the kids like to party in Devon... tractor rides, scavenger hunts, zip wires... amazing party for the boys little pal. Have loved seeing him make new friends and growing in confidence. He is a changed boy since moving, so much happier and less anxious.. once he frantically worried about getting his hands dirty and now he practically rolls in mud on a daily basis!! #devonisheaven #countryboy #countryliving #happyboy #lovehimso
