Information for your first visit

Appointments:

My main treatment room is in Sidmouth where you can see me:  9:15- 4:00
Monday, Wednesday, Friday
 & Saturday.

Location:

I am at Ebdons Court Natural Health, 5 Grosvenor Mansions, Church Street, Sidmouth EX10 8NB Which is a couple of minutes walk from the sea front in a quiet courtyard located opposite Gliddons Toy Centre on Church Street.   You will see some black iron gates, just follow the white building round to the left and you will see a white door with a large leaflet stand.

Please ring the bell and I will come and greet you.  There is a bathroom and waiting area on the first floor to the right.  My treatment room is on the left.

If paying for parking you may want to allow a little longer so you don’t have to rush back to the car – the traffic wardens in Sidmouth are very keen!

Payment:

The cost is £50/hour payable via cash or cheque.  Gift vouchers are also available.  I’m afraid I am unable to receive payment by card at the moment.  However, there is an ATM less than 2 minutes away on New Street (HSBC).

Cancellations/Rescheduling

I understand life can sometimes get in the way of keeping an appointment.  If you must cancel, please do so at least 24 hours before the starting time of your appointment and 48 hours before for Monday appointments to ensure availability for other clients.

Appointment times are reserved for you – missed appointments without appropriate notice will incur a fee

For your first session:

  1. Please refrain from using any oils/creams/lotions/sun screen on your skin if possible as these products make it difficult to maintain good contact during your treatment.
  2. Ladies, don’t feel obliged to shave your legs – it really doesn’t matter to me.
  3. During massage treatments you are draped with towels and I only uncover the area I am working on.  You will keep underwear on, however please don’t wear your best underwear just in case any massage oil accidentally seeps onto it.
  4. MFR sessions are usually done in both bra and briefs and like massage you will be draped with towels. Some people prefer to wear a well fitted or sports bra with loose fitted shorts and not to have towels. It is entirely up to you and not a requirement.

Communication:

Your experience is as important to me as it is to you please communicate freely with me at any time during the session.  Eg. If you are too hot/cold, if you need the bathroom, more water, if the pressure is not perfect for you etc.

During MFR session we work more as a team to reach your goals and I will ask you to feel into your body to let me know any sensations you may be feeling.  It is quite common to feel the tissue melting like butter under my hands. You may also feel these sensations and others elsewhere in your body, this feedback and your ability to tune in makes the whole treatment even more effective.

Please see my frequently asked questions page for more information.  Or feel free to contact me prior to your appointment with any other questions you may have.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Helen makes me feel that she really wants to help me and not once have I felt like just another client, not many people have this gift, but this together with her obvious skill and expertise has made such a difference.
