“Before seeing Janine I was suffering from strong period pain every month. I was delighted by the immediate results of her gentle work … I can now enjoy pain-free cycles!” – Marie


I have been using the self-care techniques every day. Not only do they help physically relieve pain, but also I’m giving attention to my body in calming, conscious and intentional ways, which really helps to relieve stress and feel nurtured.
I've used (a different therapy) for years, but after a 30min virtual session with Janine I experienced instant effective pain relief to support me at home and work. I'm thinking about pain relief in a completely different way now. Thank you Janine.
Before seeing Janine I was suffering from strong period pain every month. I was delighted by the immediate results of her gentle work…..and I can now enjoy pain-free cycles!

“My 15 yr old daughter suffered terribly with her period. She couldn’t walk, had unbearable pain and vomiting and she missed days of school – not to mention the mood swings. She has now had three periods since her first session with Janine and the results are amazing – all her symptoms have disappeared. As she puts it ‘this is magic’.”


I really had not anticipated such a result, to say I was delighted to be pain free is an understatement. It is very gentle, I felt completely safe at all times.

  • Bend right to avoid back painDo you have trouble with low back pain when gardening or doing other activities that require bending forward?

The key to bending without hurting your back is to focus on bending at the HIPS instead of the knees The reason is that while the vertebrae in our mid to upper backs and necks are shaped to allow us to twist and bend forward and backward, the vertebrae in our low backs are shaped in a way that actually limits these...Read more
  • How to clear stress from your body (and mind) Is it 'do nothing' week for you? For many of us, the week between Xmas & New Year is a kind of liminal time where 'nothing' happens and it's more acceptable to rest and reset. But sometimes we have so much stress stored in our bodies from the old year that it feels hard to really relax before the new one, and just slowing down and doing nothing doesn't work. If that's you, try the suggestions below for releasing your built-up stress. They come from my favourite book of 2022 which I highly...Read more
  • Problem periods? This is for you - or your sister/daughter/friend...Are your periods hard to bear, with terrible moods before your period, strong period pain and other symptoms? If not, does someone you know suffer like this? I used to suffer severe symptoms from my teens to my 30s, being 'out of action' for many days each month. Conventional medicine only offered me painkillers and the contraceptive pill - which either didn't help much or caused unwanted side-effects, for me and many other women. You probably think - like I did - that if you have difficult...Read more
