“Second visit to Wendy and feeling so much better following an upper body deep tissue massage. A niggle arose in my shoulder after a 4k swim and Wendy put me right, made me feel 'as new' and prepared for the next swim. So appreciated Wendy, thank you.” Nicola Owen

 

“A fantastic way to relax and unwind, the reflexology treatment I received with Wendy was one of the most relaxing treatments, also very interesting to learn which different organs in the body are treated by a reflexology treatment. I would highly recommend Rooke Holistic Therapies.” Jane Lawlor

“As a keen sportswoman and soft tissue & movement therapist myself I know just how important it is to look after ourselves (and it possibly makes me a little picky in who I choose to be treated by). I booked in with Wendy for a relaxing massage - just what I needed at that time. Wendy was super responsive to my needs leaving me to zone out or chat when appropriate, ensuring I was comfortable throughout and modifying the treatment when needed. From arrival to leaving I felt well cared for and would highly recommend a visit.” Ben du Bernard

"This was my second [reflexology] session very relaxing - after my first session I had the best nights sleep in about 15 years - since I had my son I tend to wake once or twice a night." Anne Terry

 

"Wendy has a very professional, lovely touch. As always a thoroughly enjoyable experience." Annette C (about a reflexology treatment)

 

"I had the first deep tissue massage of my life with Wendy. Wow. I realised half way through that it was the first time in a long time that I was doing something that was completely for me. I felt so good afterwards that I went for a manicure as well! Thank you Wendy." Sarah McGill


"The [reflexology] treatment is very relaxing and the whole experience is very relaxing with the music. It is good to focus on the feet if the mind is wandering and to keep bringing your attention back to the feet as my mind does wander off. Wendy seems very skilled in what she does and I would recommend her." Pat Stockley


"Amazing [reflexology] treatment. Makes you feel relaxed, calm and away from reality." Irina Lastovskaya


"Dear Wendy, Thank you very much for today's session; I would like to let you know that I have been feeling very well since, and my muscles seem to have loosened and become more flexible; was very tight before the session. I feel very much better in general. Thank you again." Farouk Ali

“I would highly recommend Wendy - I had THE most amazing Indian head massage and felt absolutely great afterwards! Wendy really puts you at your ease and has created a really calm ambience in her treatment room.” Sally Annette (Head of SaaS Commercial Management at Oracle)


“Feeling so much better for my Swedish Massage this afternoon Wendy, thank you so much, I could literally feel my circulation waking up! It was so relaxing too, a welcome treat! Also thanks for the tips and advise on the various issues we discussed. Fabulous!” Lisa Kay Maria (Professional Organiser)


“After a long day of sitting at a desk, the Indian Head massage was a welcome treat and a very relaxing experience  throughout. Prior to my treatment I had been struggling a bit to get good quality sleep, but that seems to no longer be a problem and I still feel refreshed even 5 days on. Highly recommended!” Elle Tull (Graphic Designer, Hey Magpie!)


“Thanks so much for the Shiatsu massage today. I really enjoyed how different it was to other massages I have experienced. I felt the pressure points release parts of my body and enjoyed having the stretching performed. As a therapist myself it is always good to try new things and have them explained to you. I also like the fact that you showed me some light exercises to do which should help my shoulder.” Elise Morgan (EM Massage Therapy)

"Amazing Experience! Felt relaxed and very calm throughout treatment [Indian head massage]. Wendy has an excellent technique and a calm, relaxed manner." Becky Crisp (Practice Nurse)


"I enjoyed the pressure work - could feel it helped. The top of back/shoulders - very relaxing. I felt completely relaxed and not focused. Can't usually fully relax, but I did here. Shoulders tense, but feel loose and nice after treatment [Indian head massage]." Verity Walker (Dispenser)


"I had my first Shiatsu massage today with Wendy and it was wonderful. After Wendy explained the process of Shiatsu, I laid on the futon to soothing music and she went to work! Wendy was able to identify tensions and stresses in my muscles and through her gentle stretching of all muscle groups the tension and tightness melted away. Afterwards and for the rest of the day my mind felt calm and my body relaxed and rejuvenated. Many thanks Wendy, look forward to the next one!" Mike Nash (Managing Director and Co-founder, Front Page Advantage)


“I've just had my first Shiatsu massage and I loved it. I was greeted with a friendly welcome and a warm smile, which immediately put me at ease. During the session I felt calm and relaxed, yet strangely rejuvenated with a heightened sense of body awareness. It's now hours afterwards and I still feel renewed, revitalised and stretched like I've had a good workout! I think Wendy is a wonderful practitioner. A truly lovely experience and I'm going back for more!”Karen Pounds (Tai Chi and Qigong Teacher)


“This is my second massage [shiatsu bodywork & acupressure] with Wendy and a great experience – so relaxing and feel so energised. A very different type of massage and one I really enjoy – looking forward to lots more.” Debbie Atkins (Personal Trainer and Nordic Walking Instructor, DA Fitness)
