Testimonials

"Sarah's use of hot Thai Herbal Massage plus physical therapy greatly helped a sciatic condition I'd suffered with for many years. The improvement was immediate after each session"

A.M.L., Kildare

"I was fortunate to find Sarah's Home Visit. It was a hassle to visit to a clinic. In the familiarity and comfort of my own home I found Sarah to be professional, competent and friendly. My shoulder is now pain free. Thanks Sarah! Scores 10/10 in my book"

C.M., Dublin

"I'd tried every treatment imaginable for my chronic upper back and neck pain over the years, and received nothing more than temporary relief. Then I met Sarah - what a difference! As well as the benefit of her magic hands and expert knowledge, I got brilliant practical advice and simple exercises that I could actually use without having to make drastic changes to my everyday routines. I've referred lots of people to Sarah - and every one of them (including my heavily pregnant friend and my 94 year old Granny!) has had the same brilliant experience that I have. She's a gem!"
