I really don't know how she does it, but within minutes of lying down on the table and Amanda getting her hands on me, I become so deeply relaxed that I often drift off for the entire session! This is miraculous to me, as I have been in a highly stressed state for a long time and have been literally unable to relax. I used to see Amanda for massage and reiki several years ago, but came back to her more recently for Craniosacral therapy, and it's simply wonderful. I really feel Amanda is part of my healing journey and am very grateful for it. Highly recommended.read more
Amanda is an amazing therapist and I can’t recommend her highly enough. I saw her for several sessions of reflexology during my pregnancy and she really worked wonders. She started the appointments with a consultation and a chat and it felt like I was talking to a friend - she is so warm, empathetic and understanding - and most importantly non-judgemental. I left each appointment feeling like I was walking on a cloud and noticed the benefits instantly. Amanda also takes time to explain the science behind the treatment which was very interesting and informative. Highly recommended!read more
Amanda is a wonderful therapist and works wonders! She is responsive, caring and I trust her 100%. She has treated me through craniosacral therapy, reflexology, and massage and I can’t wait to get back to see her.
Amanda is the cranio business. Having moved to Edinburgh I was looking for a cranio therapist as I respond well to this treatment and lucked upon Amanda. Very happy that I did. From the first taster treatment I did I have felt more relaxed and together both mentally and physically. She has helped align my body and is aware of the stresses that I put it through with my strength training regime so when I tell her my symptoms she hits the spot every single time. She recently emergency fitted me in for an appointment for some jaw work after I had toothache and the pain has now gone. I aim for twice a month and it’s the best money I have invested. I always feel more me afterwards and sleep like a dream. Great human, intuitive, friendly and funny. Highly recommend.read more

I regularly visit Amanda as part of my wellness routine.

I have been seeing Amanda for reflexology sessions since having my little boy by a fairly traumatic c-section 10 months ago. My body felt pretty broken after my pregnancy and c-section, and the reflexology has really helped make me feel more human again. Amanda really does work magic. I am always impressed with her prognosis at the end of each session when she identifies the areas that required attention and how accurate she is. The sessions have helped restore my general wellness. Thanks Amanda!read more
I had been suffering from frequent migraines for around 6 months, when I decided to pay Amanda a visit. Initially my thoughts were that a visit to see her is always relaxing and that's bound to help. She had other ideas and recommended a craniosacral treatment. I noticed a marked improvement after just one treatment, and after the second treatment, the migraines have gone. I highly recommend Amanda as a therapist, and not just for craniosacral treatment. She's very knowledgeable, and her warm and friendly demeanour will put you at ease.read more

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.
