Restoring Balance

Helping you to feel great again

Our body is incredibly clever and resourceful allowing us to live our lives – balancing feelings, movement, control and co-ordination.  

When things go out of balance our body lets us know something isn’t right and that something needs to change.

Your body will have the answers.  We’ll work together to identify the root cause using a number of different therapeutic techniques.

COVID Update

In line with current government guidance, and that of my professional bodies – clinic is currently closed for in person work.  However, I’m still working online to help and support you.

 

ScarWork

ScarWork is a gentle light touch therapy to treat a range of presentation of scar tissue, after a surgery or accident creates a scar.

It won’t matter if your scar feels thick and lumpy, or tight and puckered, or feels like a gap of spongy tissue.

Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle hands on therapy to release deeply held tensions in the body and restore balance and vitality to both body and mind.

Neuromuscular Testing and Kinesiology

Using manual muscle testing to understand what is happening to your nervous system, where your body has developed cheats or compensation patterns.

Hello, I’m Claire

Wellness and Rehabilitation Specialist


I’ve always had a passion for health & well-being, following a life changing accident I have decided to follow my true passions in life, stepping away from the corporate world. 

Now I get a chance to take it to make a difference to the lives of others using  a fantastic combination of different therapies – massage, ScarWork, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Kinesiology, Polarity, and NMT.  I work intuitively, so it’s very likely that your treatment will be a combination of different therapeutic techniques. 

 It’s a great privilege to combine these techniques together to guide and support you in restoring your balance.  It’s not unusual to find that your pain often comes from something seemingly unrelated such as a scar, bump on the head or dental work.

When I’m not in clinic, I’m a regular normal person who mountain bikes and swims long distances.

My approach

My work is likely to be very different to many other therapists that you have worked with. I work with more than just where you feel pain, I work with your nervous system to help identify the root cause of your problems.  

This means looking at all the different things that have and do cause stress in your life.  Stressors will be different for all of us, they can be complex and multi layered incorporating everything from structural and biomechanical, to internal electrical issues, hormone related or even emotional. 

Every knock, bump, trauma, surgery, fracture, cut and sprain gets stored within your nervous system.  The body is clever, it develops cheats and compensation patterns to keep you running.

Eventually you’ll receive some warning signs that things aren’t right – most commonly it is pain.  Pain is your body’s way of letting you know that something isn’t right.  It’s quite common for there to be a close link between unresolved trauma and pain. Together we’ll work through the layers to build your pain puzzle.  Learning how to listen and hear what your body is telling you is empowering & life changing.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and watching Claire grow to become an amazing therapist her natural talent shines through and her caring nature is authentic.

As a masseuse and under a great deal of stress Claire worked wonders on my hands and feet and I will be returning. 🌺

Professional and very well informed. Chatted with me her plan of action beforehand and I cannot thank Claire enough for what she did.

She really helped me no end today; not just with the physical ailments I presented her with my dodge knee but mostly by helping me to “switch off” and just relax which is what I really really needed at the moment.

I’m really looking forward to a great sleep tonight and another session for sure.

Can’t recommend Claire enough - y’all need to head to Restoring Balance

After meeting with Claire i knew straight away i was in good hands. She made me feel at ease and listened to my needs. As a Personal Trainer, Rider and instructor my busy body needed attention. All I can say is THANK YOU Claire my Balanced is Restored until the next time.

I would 100% recommend Claire to anyone. She was so welcoming and calming and really made me feel at ease. She took into account my medical history and adapted her technique to suit me to make sure she wasn't going to cause any potential damage.

I was comfortable throughout and Claire made sure of this and was very tentative. After being in complete agony for 5 days, she has definitely made a difference and the pain is far less than it has been. I'm really happy with the service I received and I can't believe how well it works! I'm now going to have a relaxing evening to reap the benefits! Thank you Claire, you're a star!!!

How do I book?

What do you charge?

I offer a free 30 minute “Let’s Talk” online appointment for new clients.  During the session we’ll work together to go through your history, look at how you move, develop an understanding of what is currently going on with you and what it means to you.

This helps me work out whether I can provide the right support and facilitation for your healing journey.

Up to 60 mins – £60 

Up to 90 mins – £90

Up to 120 mins – £120

Will I need to complete a client history form?

Yes, absolutely.  The form that I use is quite long and requires quite a bit of detail, most of which may not appear immediately relevant. Many aches & pains may have their root cause somewhere in your history, so it is vital that any historic information forms part of your treatment.

Pay particular attention to the dental work, scars, tattoo’s, piercings etc section, as well as any childhood misadventures or broken bones.  It’s becoming more common that early childhood accidents are relevant to solving systemic issues which often come to the surface during the initial consultation. It might be worth making a timeline of injuries, accidents, tattoos etc.

With that in mind it’s often best to revisit the form several times before the first session, as older injuries / trauma, easily get forgotten. 

As a therapist it’s great to receive your form before your session, as it gives me a chance to review it to help structure our session.

What do I wear?

If this is your first consultation, please wear or make sure you bring some clothing that is easy to move in such as shorts / leggings / loose fitting bottoms and a thin, comfortable fitting top to change into before the appointment for the testing element of the session

Clinical treatments are normally carried out with clothes on.  Most people come to clinic in clean sports wear.  Please make sure you have appropriate underwear on, in case garments need to be removed to access and work on limbs or scars etc more easily.

What will happen on the first session?

The first session we’ll talk about your history, undertake some simple assessments of how you move, it’s nothing to worry about, but it helps build up a picture of what is happening within your body, breath and nervous system.
