" Had a full body massage today and it’s no exaggeration to say it’s the best massage I’ve ever had and frankly one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. It was therapeutic on a level I didn’t even know I needed. I feel lighter and more clear headed and my back, neck and shoulders feel amazing. I can’t recommend highly enough. Thank you, Amanda. "
"When I signed up for the introductory programme I did so as an almost desperate measure in an attempt to get some sort of mobility back into my hip and attended not really expecting anything to change, after completing a course of hydrotherapy and exercises from physio not really having much if any impact. Wow was I wrong! After just three sessions I feel I have made more progress than I have in the past 9 months and can’t thank you enough for your guidance. Not only that but after my meltdown after week one, for which I can only apologise again, you said something which has completely changed my mindset and that was that things might not work as well as they did before and that’s ok and to focus on the movement I have got"
" What a gem! I came across an advert for House of Equilibrium, whilst I was searching for a more bespoke relaxation experience …. and boy did I find it. Amanda was not only very kind and helpful, but she also went that extra mile and took the time to understand my situation, to enable me to get the maximum benefit from my therapy. Amanda was very professional throughout my journey and gave me some excellent advice around my wellbeing and suggested some great apps for me to listen to. If you are looking for something more personable when it comes to your health and wellbeing, look no further, Amanda is an amazing therapist, with a broad skillset and a lovely personality. All this, plus the bonus of supporting a local SME, what more could you want. I will be back Amanda "
" I visited Amanda’s beautiful Garden Room yesterday, for the first time. Having looked at my general health notes and following a short discussion Amanda recommended the Nurture Experience, a Back, Neck and Shoulder massage, followed by a 30 minute Reflexology session. All centred on getting me more relaxed and free of tension, which has built up over the past couple of years. I thoroughly enjoyed my treatments and followed Amanda’s advice to spend the afternoon relaxing at home and keeping well hydrated. This morning I woke with tension free shoulders, my feet were not crunching and grinding as they usually do for the first 30 mins when I get up and I’ve spent the first part of my day with more vim and vigour than I’ve felt for a lonnnnnnng time. I’m really feeling the benefit of Amanda’s magic fingers and would highly recommend booking to see her if you’re in need of a little TLC. Already looking at choosing my next treatment. Thank you Amanda "
" After a devastating year both physical and emotional, I was instructed by my doctor to find some time for myself and my well-being. I approached Amanda with my physical restrictions and attended her "Introduction to Pilates" Workshop as it had been many years since practising Pilates. That was 18 months ago and I still attend my Mixed Ability class. Exercises are adapted to suit everyone’s ability. Amanda’s classes are fun, challenging and full of content. I leave full of energy and with a clear mind. I’ve felt my mental and physical strength improve dramatically. It doesn’t matter what is happening outside the class, inside the class everyone is welcoming and as much as Amanda pushes us sometimes - we all love her and come back for more! "
" I first spoke to Amanda about my sisters birthday in May, knowing that I wanted to do something special as it was her 30th but wasn’t sure exactly what. Amanda was full of ideas of how we could set up a relaxation day to remember, and tailored it to the ideas I had for her. What an amazing day we had, we loved every minute! To be able to book something in your own home, but to still have the ‘spa’ feeling was amazing! We are already planning our next get together! "
" The Garden Room is an oasis for those of us with busy, often stressful lives. You can't beat the feeling you have when you leave following an holistic massage treatment. Amanda is highly skilled and professional. She personalises her treatment to your specific needs (I am both a runner and someone who works mostly at a desk so have all kinds of niggles). Amanda's space is calm, clean, warm, inviting (and of course Covid friendly). Amanda herself is also warm, welcoming, friendly, skilled and has a wealth of experience and advice she is willing to share. I wish I had found her studio sooner! "
" I’ve just completed the introduction to beginners Pilates class. It’s a great class. I love the fact that it’s a small group. With people of different ages and abilities. I’ve never tried Pilates before but it’s been something I’ve been wanting to try for a while and I’m so glad I did. Amanda is such a lovely lady, she is very patient and always encouraging during the classes. You always find yourself leaving the class feeling more positive and refreshed about learning more about Pilates. Thank you Amanda!"
"I have been going to Amanda for over a year now as I struggle with severe neck pain and knots in my back. I wouldn't go to anyone else and would recommend her extremely highly. She is a lovely person inside and out and the garden room is the most relaxing place, as soon as you arrive you feel relaxed and calm. She is so knowledgeable and knows exactly what my needs are. All covid regulations are in place and it feels very safe, Amanda wears all the PPE and everything is sanitized and clean. If you struggle with any aches, pains or tension, contact Amanda, you won't regret it"
“ A friend introduced me to Amanda’s classes 4 years ago and I am so grateful she did. My body shape has changed, I feel fitter and stronger and it has helped me be more effective with the other exercise I participate in (running, cycling). The classes also help me mentally, they give me time to focus on myself and help me relax. I love Pilates!! ”
" I joined Amanda at House of Equilibrium with the online Punch FIT sessions after struggling to find a form of excercise that suited me due to knee injury. Amanda has been fantastic and supportive throughout the six weeks. I feel so much better in myself and I feel energised! The sessions are for everyone and can be taken at your own pace. Highly recommend giving this a go, you will not regret it."
" I would highly recommend Amanda, she has an aura of fabulous positive energy that is uplifting. The Pilates workshop is very good with Amanda being very informative throughout the session, she knows her stuff. All clients are looked after from the start of signing to the end of the session. The class size is small and this enables Amanda to observe her clients and correct them. A good experience and professional from the start to the end "
