Testimonials (I Like to respect client confidentiality so rarely ask for testimonials . . . . . but here are a few!)
David W, Wirral “Thank you for the treatments and for the brilliant practical demonstration for facilitating conscious awareness of old traumatic memories, how they are stored in the body, and how they can affect our present lives and health. I have read and heard much on the subject but, until now, have never quite got it. Now I do! And I also have anecdotal evidence to share with others. Priceless! I’ll see you next week for another relaxing and highly beneficial treatment.” 2017
Jane B, Liverpool "Thanks so much. It was an amazing treatment. I think the more sessions I have with you, the more life enhancing it becomes. Can't thank you enough" June 2016
Ann from Colchester. "I contacted Petra with chronic backpain. The pain was so bad that I couldn't walk. I was either crawling around on all fours or hobbling around on crutches. I was taking three types of prescribed painkillers and the doctor refused morphine because he said it wouldn't touch the pain. Central Channel Release was like a miracle for me - it literally kick-started the healing process. Quite simply, I arrived at the treatment room on crutches and left without them! I take the occasional painkiller now, Lyrica, and have not looked back."
Julie from Wirral:
"I had been suicidal, suffering from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, only
able to walk with a walking stick and unable to get out of the house much.
I nearly gave up.
As a last resort, I tried shiatsu shintai. During the treatment I
experienced a freedom in my body that I hadn't for over 20 years. I knew
then that the treatment regime would work for me. Six months later and
I am now able to go shopping occasionally, have started a course I had
been wanting to do for a long time and am beginning to live life in a way
that I thought had been lost to me forever.
The treatment is at times amazing, and at others, very subtle. I also feel
it is the quality of experience and intuition that Petra brings which
makes Shiatsu Shintai such a deep, fundamental healing on all levels.
I can't give a high enough recommendation."
Neil, Liverpool, Denmark & Spain
"Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful treatment. Its so great to have a connection to this energy. I really feel it at a deep level. Once again feel like I have made some more shifts, feeling very grounded calm and connected to my longing."
"Thank you so much for the huge relief of the pain in my shoulder - just a bit of ache now . . . you are a star, thank you so much"
J.C. Wirral. " Thank you for lovely treatment yesterday. Slept well last night and woke up with no ache, movement is such that I can put my hair up without saying ouch! Hugs" July 2015
