I had been diagnosed with PCOS few years ago and struggled with the typical symptoms: rapid weight gain, water retention, lack of energy and hormonal imbalance. I was really desperate for help as doctors only kept prescribing new drugs which only made me worse – then I found Andrea and I never looked back! During my first appointment Andrea came across as a really caring and friendly, but most importantly knowledgeable person and suggested that I have lymphatic massage with reflexology to work on my crazy hormones, and for next few months my appointments with Andrea were the highlight of my week! Each treatment was super relaxing and worked wonders, within weeks I started losing weight and excess water, my face was glowing and I could feel my hormones are getting back to their normal levels. My energy was back too so I went back to running and swimming regularly which I could not face before my first appointment with Andrea. Six months later I went back to my doctor for a scan and he could not believe all my symptoms disappeared without any medication and my ovaries were now cyst- free! I can recommend Andrea to anyone; she’s an amazing person and therapist.

I often get neck and shoulder ache from sitting at a desk all day. After the treatments I had no tension and realised that my posture when sitting at my desk was more comfortable. At the end of the treatment it felt like I’d had more than just my feet worked on!

I would wholeheartedly recommend Andrea following my back, shoulder and neck massage. Like many people, that’s where I carry my stress and working at a desk all day adds to the strain. Consequently, I’ve had many such massages to help with tension and the treatment with Andrea was by far and away the best I have had.

Firstly, the pressure applied was neither too light or too heavy. The variety of massage therapists I have had in the past always fall into one of those two categories but Andrea was spot on.

My other pet hate is overly oily lotions but that used by Andrea did not leave me feel like a salad covered in dressing! Very smooth texture which added to the treatment.

As the treatment went on I could feel my shoulders and arms relaxing completely. My arms went from being firmly held by my side to just lolling off the sides of the table. I had to be helped back into my
top as my arms and shoulders felt so loose and relaxed.

The final touch was when I went home so relaxed that I had a nice afternoon nap which is a real achievement for a stress bunny like me!

I will be visiting again.

I’ve been having reflexology treatment with Andrea and noticed a huge improvement in a short space of time. Andrea has such a calming presence, is incredibly caring and provides excellent treatments. Her genuine care and concern is not something you find often and instantly makes you feel comfortable and safe. I always fall asleep during the treatments but wake up feeling relaxed and energised. Andrea is a gem! Di

I opted for Reflexology, but my intuitive therapist adds some Energy Work into the mix in a bid to rebalance my delicate digestive and immune systems. Though a course is recommended, I leave feeling far lighter in mind and return home to the best night’s sleep in weeks. Treat indeed.

I just wanted to say thank you for today, I feel more supple. I think you’re the best massage therapist I have ever been to. I highly recommend Andrea to my friends and family. Thank you again.

The results after the first treatment were astonishing. Barry managed to completely release tension in my hamstrings and IT band even though they were previously treated at a different clinic without any results. We have also been working on bringing more mobility in my spine and hips which has had a profound effect on my yoga practice, creating greater range of movement and ease. The sessions are only 30 min long and Barry does not waste time managing to address everything that needs treating. Very professional! Highly recommend!

I have had five sessions with Barry for shoulder and back pains. He is extremely professional and has a pleasant manner which helps to make you feel comfortable. I have noticed a huge improvement from the sessions which is a massive relief as I have been putting up with these problems for 12 years now. In short I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I have suffered chronic pain to my hip, back and shoulder following a physical attack 10 years ago. Since sustaining my injuries, I’ve never been out of pain. I’ve tried all types of therapy, and practiced yoga for years to control and ease the pain…none of which have provided any degree of relief.

I visited Barry after my doctor recommended osteopathy. After just one session I experienced a good level of pain relief. After 3 sessions I have enjoyed substantial and prolonged pain relief in all areas of injury..at times feeling no pain at all.

As a result of Barry’s treatment I feel uplifted with an increased sense of well being. Barry is an amazing osteopath who knows exactly what to target. He combines many techniques, treats you holistically, is intuitive, attentive, and tunes in well with all your body connections.

He talks you through treatment providing invaluable information, and gives practical exercises/advice for further improvement at home. He is personable and approachable and makes you feel like you’re really in ‘good hands’ during treatment.

I highly recommend him for pain reduction/elimination to deep set, long standing injuries. Not only is he an excellent osteopath with great practice that gives incredible results ..he’s also a really nice guy who puts you at ease as soon as you meet him.

I often come to visit Barry, very broken through working a physical job and through wrestling. I always leave feeling lighter, more flexible and pain free! I’d say it’s magic but actually he is just the best osteopath I have ever visited!

Rhia O’Reilly / Personal trainer and Wrestler

I decided to have a course of reflexology treatments, I was a bit sceptical at first, but Andrea made me feel completely relaxed. I was totally amazed and will definitely be back for more treatments!

Thank you, Carey, for an excellent colonic treatment. I was comforted by the knowledge that you have so many years of experience and yet are still interested enough to continue studying and sharing many tips for a healthier lifestyle. For the past few months I have been extremely stressed and had foolishly picked up bad eating habits I had previously ditched. Without ‘nagging’, you reminded me how to get back on track. The session unblocked me, both mentally and physically!

I highly recommend Carey for anyone thinking of having a colonic hydrotherapy treatment. She is especially kind, attentive and very gentle. After a session with Carey, I really feel lighter, cleaner, energized and highly motivated to improve my eating habits. If you’ve never tried colonic hydrotherapy before, you could not be in better hands than with Carey.

I have been seeing Andrea for reflexology for a few months. Andrea has a great attitude, is very helpful and is easy to talk to. Her work is amazing and I always leave a session feeling relaxed and energised!
