Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a hands on holistic treatment for the whole body and mind that works mainly with the body’s connective tissues. It uses gentle techniques to reduce chronic aches and ailments while alleviating the stress that is so often behind them!

Pre Natal Therapies

Pregnancy can be a happy but also an uncomfortable time! My pre natal clients use regular treatment to work on existing symptoms, prevent new ones, reduce stress and help prepare themselves for the birth. It’s an all important time when self care is an absolute must.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a popular complementary therapy that focuses mainly on your feet. Reflexology helps your body to heal itself; it removes tension and brings balance to your body and mind. It’s gentle and non-invasive; all you have to do is take off your shoes and socks, so it’s suitable for almost anyone, anywhere.

About Me

I first qualified in Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology in 1999 and have been full time therapist and avid believer in natural health and wellness ever since! Over 15 years later my training and experience has taken me all over the UK and abroad, always trying to broaden my knowledge and skills to better help my clients with their concerns.

Amanda is a very knowlegable and effective practitioner. I am amazed at her ability to understand what is going on in my body and how injuries are connected. She is very skilled and her sessions are making a real difference to my health and well being. Above all she is a very caring person and really takes the time to listen to how you are feeling and to adjust her treatments accordingly. I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda to anyone - we are lucky to have such a talented and highly skilled practioner here in Edinburgh.

I had been trying to find a good sacral cranal in Edinburgh and came across “Happy Being” I loved the name and thought I would give Amanda a go, and it paid of big time. She played a big part in my healing journey with a damaged knee and colon cancer which I have now totally recovered from. I have recently been seeing her about a back issue, which at the moment is on going...I would really highly recommend this brilliant treatment and also this very experienced amazing lady she has a very healing gift with her hands, which if you allow yourself to totally relax while she is treating you, can work miracles with so many issues....So why not give it a go �

I’ve been getting Cranio Sacral Therapy from Amanda and am extremely impressed; an excellent therapist who was able to discern aspects of my diet and locate old injuries by touch alone, her knowledge and skills are incredible. Recent work providing relief from hernia surgery last year and resolving issues from a broken jaw over a decade ago, Amanda’s treatments have a powerful effect while being very relaxing. I highly recommend that you book in!

I have been having Reflexology with Amanda both during IVF and then throughout my resulting pregnancy and it has been fantastic. She is so lovely and I always feel absolutely great after a treatment, and always go away with tips on things to focus on to keep me feeling good. It has really helped me to stay relaxed throughout both the IVF treatment and my pregnancy and I would thoroughly recommend Amanda to anyone going through either one.

Amanda is a wonderful therapist; professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I have been seeing her regularly throughout my pregnancy and she has always put me at ease, making sure I'm comfortable, but also keeping me informed about the treatment and what I can do at home to ease any niggles.Pregnancy massage with Amanda is absolutely amazing! So relaxing and focused on the areas of the body that need it. I find her manner calm and caring - she doesn't mind if I doze off at any point! She is also flexible regarding treatment depending on my needs at the time. I have had craniosacral treatment as well as reflexology with Amanda and I always leave feeling rejuvenated.I would recommend Amanda to anyone and everyone as I think she is fab!

I have had a series of treatments from Amanda - incorporating massage, energy work & craniosacral therapy. She is very intuitive about what will be the most suitable therapy at the time, & has helped me immensely healing through a horrible time of emotional & physical shenanigans. I always leave feeling gazillions better! She is very sensitive, but at the right time also has a wicked sense of humour! Highly recommend.

I have been to Amanda for reflexology and massage after a friend recommended her. She has a lovely, friendly manner and is extremely knowledgeable. I always feel fantastic after a massage and she really gets the knots out! I recently had induction reflexology prior to being induced with my son and I left feeling really calm at what was a scary time.

Amanda's interest in my health and general well-being is the reason I continue to go back for treatment. She shows a genuine interest in helping you become stronger and ensures you receive the correct treatment to address your health concerns. I have been seeing Amanda for a number of years and have received Reiki, Massage and Reflexology all of which have helped me at various stages. More recently I have been receiving reflexology during pregnancy and can't thank her enough for helping to reduce the pregnancy related discomfort. I have also suggested family members see her and they have been equally impressed. Amanda is a true professional and goes above and beyond to ensure that the clients well-being is at the centre of it all, I cannot recommend her enough.

I first started seeing Amanda for reflexology about 6 years ago and would not give my time or money to anyone else. She has really helped me in many ways and is a Master at what she does. She has introduced me to many therapies over the years including reiki (which astounded me to be honest as it is amazing) and more recently the craniosacral which was really great and helped with a back problem. Amanda is the best, simple!

Amanda is amazing! I first started seeing her for reflexology several years ago for severe periods ( life changing after one session!) and over the years she has helped me with other ailments including fertility problems. I had reiki and massage also. She has a gentle, friendly manner and gives you a great understanding of your treatment. I cannot recommend Amanda highly enough!

I've been visiting Amanda for years and can't recommend her highly enough - I tell all my friends about her!She is a great therapist who really engages with her client to make sure you get the most from your chosen treatment. I've tried various therapies with Amanda - reflexology, which I continued whilst I was pregnant, Induction reflexology & NLP (which worked wonders so I didn't have to get induced medically) and most recently massage & cranio-sacral - and I've always had brilliant results.

Amanda is not only an amazing therapist but she takes a genuine interest in you as a person. She takes the times to explain the treatment (I've been having Reflexology) and why certain areas are sensitive/tender, and how we can alleviate the problem. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Amanda as a therapist as her (and her hands) have made a big difference to me in the short time I have been going to see her.

Amanda is fantastic! Whatever ails you she is sure to have a treatment to support you, heal you and ease your pain. I can not recommend her highly enough. She has helped me in so many ways, and I am still feeling the benefits. She will really listen to you and give you advice from an experienced point of view and in a gentle way. Go and see her if you've been thinking about alternative therapies. You will be glad you did.
