What clients say about our therapies

What clients say about our classes



"HOPS has given me hope for the future, hope that I can expect and receive a bit of quality time for me. Furthermore, time for me without guilt.

I suppose that mine is not an easy remit, because I am both a carer and recipient of care. My partner and I both have physical health problems, so care for each other, and at times have felt overwhelmed and alone.

Until we found out about HOPS. From that day my life has changed for the better. That's not to say that my problems have gone away, (if only) but and it's a big but, the time that I spend at HOPS gives me a sense of well being that I could have only dreamed of before my first visit."

All our clients said that the therapy had helped them and that they felt better since having the treatment.

Other comments on feeling better after treatments:

“It just feels lovely to be able to relax. I lose a sense of time. It would be helpful to have more, especially the Shiatsu”

“Even my family have noticed what a difference it makes”

“Feel better in myself – feel less guilty in taking time out for myself”

“I will now build more of these experiences into my life on a regular basis”

“Feel much better mentally – more happy and more positive about things.” “Even after the first session, I felt better. Others said I looked better.”

“Less neck pain. Slept better after treatments”

“I feel healthier.”

Many of our clients would like to receive more sessions.

The reasons for wanting more sessions include:

“I feel I am calmer and more patient in stressful situations and it has been beneficial to my health.”

“I think in the longer term it would make a real difference to me”

“It did help me but I need more sessions as I have a busy lifestyle and family responsibilities.”

“I’m not used to relaxing for that amount of time. It feels so good to be relaxed.”

“Someone totally focused on me for a change.”

“It helps me to relax. It’s ‘me’ time. Enjoyed treatment & talking to therapist.”

“It’s so relaxing. Sets you up for the week”
