Rhonda Hinson
Holistic Therapist
Cell Phone: 07949 888575

Biographical Info

Rhonda offers the following treatments most of which are gentle and non-invasive therapies. They are suitable for all ages, (birth – OAP) looking at the person as a whole not just the symptoms.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy – Hands are lightly placed whilst fully clothed, listening much the same way that a counsellor might listen to your words; a feeling that you have been heard in the truest sense of the word.

Dorn-Method Therapist – It’s used to correct misalignments of the spine and self-help exercise. This treatment is very effective, non-manipulative manual therapy, which doesn’t involve any ‘clicking’ or ‘crunching’ which so many people fear of dislike.

Indian Head Massage – is a non-invasive, fully clothed treatment that is ideal for clients. Often a client sits in a comfortable chair with the therapist working from behind.

Reflexology (incl. Maternity/Fertility) has been shown to be highly effective in reducing stress and anxiety, a major factor in infertility. Can be just for Well-Being!
