Lillian Bond
I saw Marian Fixler for acupuncture throughout my pregnancy. I was new to acupuncture, and I can not imagine a better introduction. Marian\'s practice, her calm demeanour and her thoughtful advice on a range of topics related to pregnancy really helped me to refocus during what was otherwise a stressful period of time. She offered practical solutions (that worked!) for many of my pregnancy symptoms, including nausea, indigestion, muscle tightness and lower back pain. In addition to acupuncture, Marian introduced me to intentional tapping (to help work through some residual stress I had from my first pregnancy and delivery). I was new to the practice, but I found it incredibly helpful during my pregnancy and ended up tap tapping away during my contractions -- I think it made a real difference. In the time of COVID, I think it is also worth mentioning the space that Marian has created at Shine. The whole team at Shine follows very careful protocols, and Marian\'s top floor space benefits from beautiful natural light from large windows. Despite the Church Street location, the room is quiet and peaceful and during our sessions I enjoyed hearing the movement of the trees in Abney Park. I can\'t say enough good things about my experience with Marian and Shine. I look forward to working with her going forward.

Barbara is the best masseuse I’ve ever had, and I’ve followed her now for a number of years because of her technique. Barbara is so attentive, I’m always so amazed at her ability to balance focussed, deep, technical work on specific areas, with energy, flow and achieving centeredness. I say this because so many masseuses are good at being technical or spiritual but rarely both! Thank you Barbara for your healing work

Valeria\'s Client
I had the privilege to be treated by Valeria for 2 years. From the moment we met I knew I had luckily stumbled upon the most knowledgeable, kind, considerate acupuncturist - who is not only an expert in her own field but in the world of fertility in general. Valeria has helped me navigate the complex world of fertility and without her I would still be lost. She has supported me and helped me get through several miscarriages, including a molar pregnancy, and a complicated IVF cycle. The result: a beautiful baby boy, who would not be here if it was not for Valeria\'s help: her excellent treatment, her unfaltering support, and her endless guidance. Thank you Valeria.
We are so glad to hear this. Thank you for taking the time to write these encouraging words. We are so happy Valeria is at Shine and was able to help you.

Robi, Yoga Teacher
Thai Yoga Massage with Danila has been life changing for me. I had issues with stiffness and tension in my shoulders, upper back and neck, due to my work; these issues were starting to affect my yoga practice and my daily life. Danila carefully examined and treated those areas with her skilful and intuitive treatments, and i felt refreshed and relaxed after the first session. After years of deep tissue, and very little improvements, I decided to try Thai Yoga massage after having experienced some of its benefits while in Thailand. With regular sessions, Danila restored a healthy mobility in my shoulders and relieved me of the pain in my neck. I left every session feeling rested and balanced but at the same time energised and stretched. My posture and flexibility have improved considerably. Her effective stretches and caring approach worked on different levels, helping me to stay flexible and healing my pains.

Danila my massage therapist is incredible. She has been able to address issues that I thought I’d have to put up with indefinitely. She was able to release a trapped nerve which I’ve had for over 20 years and a muscle spasm problem which I’ve had for even longer. I cannot thank her enough for the amazing treatment.
Thank you very much. We will be glad to pass on your lovely review to Danila.

I have now had my hair cut twice by Eva at Shine on the Green. She is a wonderful hair stylist and I can honestly say they are the best cuts I have ever had. She takes great care, she works in a very professional way and is very talented. I would highly recommend Eva.

First massage therapist ever that took the time to explain the muscles and sent me home with a goody bag of ideas to maintain better health on my neck issues. Linda is much more than a excellent massage therapist, she is clearly there to improve your overall health and wellbeing. I'll be back, hopefully having used the goody bag! :-)

I have PCOS and therefore experienced subfertility. Valeria was recommended by many people and I understand why. Through carefully researched practice, a great deal of experience as well as patience, she gave me confidence, hope and ultimately brought on my periods again which led to the conception of my son. As well as enjoying the thoroughness of Valeria\'s sessions, both through discussion and practice, she also followed up with relevant research articles which I found particularly valuable. I will be eternally grateful to Valeria for supporting me through a very difficult time in my life. I would recommend her to anyone (and already have!)
Rehana
Rachel Millward
This is a review for Osteopathy with Rehana Kapadia.... I\'ve been going to this clinic to have Cranial Osteopathy with the wonderful Rehana Kapadia, for well over a decade. When I started seeing Rehana, I was in my 20s, and experiencing debilitating chronic pain, struggling with mobility, going through major corrective surgeries. Rehana\'s treatments were safe, when very little was - I am always absolutely confident that she won\'t trigger a flare up or push my body to do something it isn\'t ready for. She is gentle in all the ways! And incredibly intelligent, knowledgable and intuitive in the best way - with bags of humility. Over the years I\'ve really appreciated the trust and respect which developed. I came with very complex problems - no one thing could fix them, but I am now free of pain and immobility most of the time, and have a much, much easier life! Rehana treated me through two pregancies and post partum phases, and now treats both my daughters, meeting and treating them on their first day of life! They both really look forward to their termly treatment... they know it will make them feel much easier in their bodies afterwards. If anyone is ill, or has an infection or injury, Rehana is our first port of call. She\'s helped with ear infections, allergies, bad backs, teething... Massively recommended!
Thanks Rachel

My first visit to Shine and I’m so thrilled with my hair! So grateful to Jennifer - I came in with blonde hair in desperate need of colour correction, with banding around the roots and a lot of different colours going on. We discussed the best options for me and she totally understood what I was looking for straight away. I left, with a perfect creamy blonde bob and my hair in great condition thanks to the treatment she recommended. So happy, Thanks Jennifer, you saved my hair!!

Eva cut my hair for the first time recently and everyone has been complementing me on my hair ever since. Eva was incredibly professional and took time to talk to me about styling and was very focused and attentive.. I was delighted and would highly recommend Eva. It is definitely one of the best haircuts I have ever had.

I benefited hugely from Valeria\'s input whilst going through IVF treatment for my 2 children. She is extremely knowledgeable and conscientious in her approach. Valeria\'s weekly session provided me with space where I could truly \'let go\'. When undergoing IVF it was important for me to really trust the advice I was being given - with Valeria I felt confident in all that she offered.

My hair colour with Joanna was absolutely amazing - I am SO HAPPY with the result. Joanna really listened to what to I wanted and did an absolutely incredible job to fix a colour I had done elsewhere and didn’t like. The result is way better than I could have imagined - I love it so much. Awesome skills! The whole team were lovely and it was just a really great experience. Thanks, everyone! xxx

Thanks God you are open! Everyone at Shine is very friendly and professional! 5 stars plus for Joanna, she is a perfectionist, very friendly and professional! Because Sonia is not around, I was very nervous to change, and I made the right choice! Very happy with my new haircut and highlights! She suggested exactly what I wanted! Best treat after lockdown! Thank you all for the nice experience! I will be back soon!

Valeria makes me very comfortable every time I see her, and over the years she has helped me a lot with my headaches and backpain.

I have been seeing Valeria for acupuncture for a few years now for various reasons from back pain to fertility. She is extremely knowledgable and also very caring, and I have found the treatments to be effective and relaxing. I can\'t recommend her enough!

I had my hair coloured and cut by Lara post 3rd lockdown, and I\'ve been so impressed by her skills. My hair had long darker roots and many different shades throughout. Lara recommended doing highlights, then colouring roots, and applying a toner and an hydrating treatment. I\'ve been dying my hair for nearly 20 years and this time had been the best outcome ever. My hair now look very natural and healthy. Lara is a pro and cannot wait to book her again! Thanks a lot, Francesca.

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.”
