TESTIMONIALS

'I have worked around the world and received many treatments with varied degrees of style and method. Elizabeth brings together many of these styles in her own unique way. The massage therapy that she treated me with allowed me to keep my body in different stages of physical condition, necessary to my performance and work as an acrobatic wire walker. Her treatments also enabled me to relax, helping my body to recover and re-energise.'   SARAH SCHWARTZ (Acrobat)


'Elizabeth was such an amazing help to me during the summer months of 2010 when I was employed as a dancer at Giffords Circus. She treated my back spasms and lower back injuries with a mixture of massage, acupuncture and cupping techniques and made a greater impact than my physical therapy and chiropractors have in New York. Thank you- my summer wouldn't have been the same without you! CAROLINA SANTOS READ (Dancer & Choreographer)


'A massage with Elizabeth is a real treat.  You come out feeling very relaxed, everything is in the right place again and your muscles don't ache anymore.  A persistent shoulder problem I had cleared up after treatment. Thank you very much.' MIRIJAM CHAPPELL, OXFORD   

 

'This summer I suffered a bad fall during a show and injured my knee. Elizabeth made the right diagnosis, and treated me with acupuncture: a 'premiere' for me! I appreciated most her ability to listen and her real skill. After three treatments, I was feeling much better. She gave me a taste of Chinese Medicine with much sweetness, efficiency and understanding' BORIS ALESSCHIOFF (Mime artist, Les Freres Tarquin)

 
 

"I have visited Elizabeth on numerous occasions for treatments and have found Elizabeth to be enthusiastic, intuitive and an excellent therapist. I have always felt comfortable and trusting in the space Elizabeth provides for her treatment. She has a profound touch that has manged to find and focus on areas of tension throughout my body. Unfortunately i no longer live in Oxford otherwise i would continue to use Elizabeth's services. I recommend her unreservedly." MIKE BOURNE, REGISTERED OSTEOPATH

 

'I have worked as a horse trainer all my life, and as a consequence of this I have suffered with pain in my shoulders. Elizabeth's massage treatment has helped ease and relax the pain, whilst training and performing with horses on an intense circus tour. Thank you!' YASMINE SMART (Horse trainer & circus star) 


'I have really benefited from the treatments I have received from Elizabeth.  It is clear she has a high level of skill and knowledge and applies it with intuition and subtlety.  The treatments are always tailored to the particular ache or injury I am experiencing and great care is taken to work through pain at a level that is comfortable yet effective.  At the end of a session I feel whole again. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone that has ignored their body for too long!'   ANNABEL DUNSTAN, ('Running yogi, business owner and mum').

 

'The treatments from Elizabeth have done me much good, both the acupuncture for my pain in the feet as well as the Thai massage. No other treatment has helped me to unlock as quickly. If you were not present during the tour, I do not know if I would have been able to continue, because of my problems with the feet, knees, neck and shoulders that you have treated. I want to say that you are like a magician with fingers like a fairy! In any case thank you thank you very much for everything.' - ROXANNE ERRIN (Dancer)

 

'As a showjumper and equestrienne, my main physical problems were in my shoulders and upper back. Elizabeth worked on these directly and was thorough in her treatment, relieving the problem and suggesting preventative warm-ups for the future'. EMILY SEAL (Showjumper)

 
'Elizabeth's combination of gentle stretching techniques  and overall deep massage, both increases the flexibility in my joints and leaves me feeling very good. To maintain my health and fitness I have a treatment every six weeks.  I would highly recommend Elizabeth and her approach and techniques'.  ANNE JAMES (Oxford)
