I have been having migraine and back and neck pain for years and the only way to live with it was getting regularly back massages. A friend recommended Joanna and her Bowen method - I was very skeptical. But to be honest I was desperate as my neck was aching so much that I decided to try. Joanna straight away noticed that my posture is not aligned (which I think one in 20 therapist I went to have ever noticed) and started touching and putting pressure on certain muscles - it was very weird as in between she pauses for a few minutes. BUT it really worked - after her session my neck pain was gone and stayed that way for weeks. I would definitely recommend it if you have pain in your back/ neck - why not give it a try - nothing to loose and lots to gain...\" - mum of 2 and full time office worker

“Joanna is an exceptional Bowen Technique therapist. She is very efficient, precise and focused during the session. She really cared about me getting better as fast as I could. She helped me tremendously with my lower back pain during the last months of pregnancy. I was in so much pain and unfortunately neither massage nor osteopathy managed to cease my aches. I felt amazing after the first session, my pain level went down tremendously and I managed to have a full night of sleep. After two more sessions my pain level went down from 10 to 1 and it really made a huge difference during the end of my pregnancy. Her gentle but profound work inspired me to become a Bowen therapist myself! I wholeheartedly recommend Joanna to anyone. I am certain she will miraculously help you to become pain free.”

“Joanna is a truly gifted practitioner, that skilfully uses her bowen and acupuncture therapies. I have been seeing her for years, after she helped me quickly recover from a fall that doctors told me would take months to heal. Within a week I felt back to normal! Since then I have used bowen and acupuncture to address muscle/joint pains created through prolonged screen time (computer use). It’s nice to have this tool, and avoid any long term issues. I would highly recommend Joanna as a therapist, her knowledge and skills are exceptional.”

I see Joanna on a regular basis for acupuncture facials and massage. I managed to see her for just one session when it was safe to do so following the initial Lockdown. I always look forward to my sessions and leave the salon with glowing skin and feeling energised and uplifted. Joanna has a holistic approach to any treatment and can tell if other areas of the body are out of synch.  She is a warm, friendly and welcoming and is a thoroughly professional and very knowledgeable therapist.  I have no hesitation in recommending Joanna.

Working with Joanna is amazing. She\'s Not only a great listener and communicator but very psychic and intuitive. In comparison to treatments from other therapists my experience is totally different. I usually get a combination of bowen therapy and acupuncture to prevent both injuries end stay stress free. And when necessary we can also work on psychological and subconscious level to move beyond the limits of the mind.

“Joanna has given me three Bowen treatments. I initially asked Joanna to see me because I had pulled a muscle in my back. This was painful and restricted my movement and prevented me from exercising. After my first appointment the pain and range of movement in my back was considerably better and I felt more relaxed. After the second treatment the pain was gone and I had regained full range of movement and was able to exercise again. I have been very impressed both by the swift resolution of my problem and by Joanna\'s professionalism. One each occasion she has been very trough checkup my progress. I would constantly be happy to see Joanna as a Bowen Therapist.”

\"Joanna\'s Bowen treatment has been amazingly effective in dealing with my back problems. I feel more relaxed than I can remember - even with working at a desk all day! - and am no longer experiencing the back aches and stiffness I have suffered from for years since I injured my back. The treatment not only gave me relief from back ache but a general sense of well-being and calm. I have had many other kinds of treatment for my back over some time including osteopathy but I have found Bowen technique to be the best - much gentler, yet profound and long lasting. Joanna is a very skilled and sensitive practitioner and I am so glad I found her. I would highly recommend her to anyone.\"

I\'m so proud of being a Shine customer! The salon today was SO amazing, considering that this is new for everyone and a really worrying time. I felt so absolutely looked after. The lovely Shine team were (this is a compliment!) like the best possible Harley Street nurses - charming, helpful, and professionally focused on giving the best customer experience, whilst at the same time keeping everyone safe. Kate was of course her normal, brilliant self (so glad to get my hair back to an acceptable standard) and it was so good to be back. I know what a huge effort this has been, in the exceptionally difficult Covid-19 circumstances, and you have done wonderfully. I can\'t wait for us to get back to normal, but for now please be assured that your team are setting the standard for everyone else.
Thanks Lucy,

I visited Shine a few months ago after my regular salon closed down - I was quite happy with my previous salon, so I was nervous about having to test a few places to see if any would offer similar quality services in Stoke Newington. I was lucky enough to book in for a hair colour treatment with Jennifer - a stylist who has been with the salon for a fair number of years and is incredibly nice and skilled. Jennifer is excellent in both colour treatments and cuts and has a calm, laid-back attitude. Further, the salon’s approach to sustainability and natural products is definitely a big plus. Thankfully I didn’t have to look into any other salons, I will be sticking with this one - thank you Jennifer!

When I spoke to Michelle about some gut problems and feeling constantly bloated she pointed out some things in my ‘ healthy ‘ diet that I should cut down on, like grains, flour and fruit. When she told me the amount of sugar I was consuming in fruit would mean I would not be burning fat properly it was like the penny finally dropping, as I lead a very active lifestyle but I was piling weight on. She also suggested intermittent fasting which I embraced with very little effort and miraculously I dropped a stone in 5 weeks with a few minor changes, and generally felt like my energy levels had been restored. I can’t thank her enough and I absolutely recommend!

Following my consultation with Michelle she provided me with an in depth nutritional analysis which was both fascinating and enlightening, easy to understand and to use in everyday food planning. Michelle is warm and personable and easy to talk to, whilst being extremely knowledgeable and professional. The advice and guidelines that she gave me have now become the basis of my eating patterns and I can honestly say that my ‘gut health’ has never been better, resulting in more energy, better sleep and general improved well-being. I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle and her delicious recipes.

Working with Michelle has been a real pleasure - her approach to nutrition combines rigor and passion for science with a very down-to-earth attitude. She had many useful tips and showed me that eating well did not have to be complicated. I would definitely recommend her.

I came to Michelle having recently been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Her manner is lovely and I felt in safe hands straight away. She was incredibly knowledgeable and supportive - taking the time to work out what changes would work for me in the long term to support my recovery.

If you haven’t tried Shiatsu before then a visit to Alice could change everything. Alice is a expert and the experience is so relaxing I almost fell asleep (in fact I actually did). The treatment is really gentle but afterwards the pains and stiffness I felt were completely gone. If it were as if Alice melted them away with her hands and without any discomfort to me. From being s sceptic I am now an avid fan and couldn’t recommend Alice’s treatment enough - John Hartley Company Director

Alice gave a treatment to one of my children some years ago, and it really helped with the issue, and he also absolutely loved it! I have also received treatments from her which have been excellent. - Zan Barberton Film Maker and Company DIrector

Totally recommend shiatsu with Alice. It's a little slice of calm and healing in a busy life, which has helped me with physical aches and pains (stiff neck, sore shoulder) and also helped me find peace and tranquility through a period of grief and sadness. Magical, mysterious and good for me, so very happy to recommend! - Nicky Smith PR Company Owner

I have been recommending Alice's treatments for years as they really work wonders! I first visited her with a chequered history of multiple horse riding accidents and a rear end shunt in a car and over a course of treatments, was put completely back on track! Shiatsu is a wonderful form of therapy and Alice is an expert. As well as being a great listener and helping you release all those tensions and calm down, Alice will make you feel much better! Thank you Alice! Sarah Hayward-Broomfield Photographer and Business Woman
