About

Are you on a healing journey wanting to catalyse change? Thinking about transforming your health and lifestyle is the first greatest step you can take. To act on this can be empowering and liberating. Receiving complementary therapies can offer you the benefits of deep relaxation, space and time, which is so precious when you live a busy life and/or care for others. Treatments can leave you feeling lifted, calm, clearer-minded and recharged - and this is when shifts can occur and symptom patterns may change.

Stress-related illness became a catalyst for me making lifestyle changes. Conventional medicine could only go so far and realising I needed to do more to help myself, was introduced to Reiki and Reflexology. So began my journey into finding balance, which is a practice, for sure, so in the words of Pema Chödrön, start where you are.

I'm Sammy, a Holistic Complementary Therapist providing Reflexology, Reiki and Indian head massage treatments working from spaces in Cornerstone Health Clinic and YouNique Wellbeing Studios. I also work with Project ADDER/Seaview Project and STAR Lounge at The Outside Project, I enjoy supporting the Sara Lee Trust during their annual Therapy Month event and attend some of the Spiritual & Holistic Markets in Hastings where I offer taster treatments at lower prices.

During a treatment...

more than anything, you should feel a deep sense of relaxation and begin to experience the symptoms of stress and tension melt away. Spending a little time on yourself is such a beneficial thing to do, especially if you work hard or care for others. Finding the balance with some rest and relaxation is key if you are feeling depleted.

Listen to your body. What is it saying?

Complementary therapies...

can often be used alongside conventional medicine. If you are at all unsure, please check with your doctor, especially if you are undergoing treatment or are awaiting a diagnosis or further investigation.

Contact me to discuss.

With your best interests at heart...

Complementary therapies should not replace conventional medical care. Please always consult your GP in the first instance if you are worried about a health issue.
