Here is some praise received following treatment sessions:
” Dawn has helped me with funny knee’s, dodgy backs, cricked necks and my post-running or golfing aches and pains. She is very good at fixing things and excellent at massage as well…” Ian. Cornwall & USA. October 2015.
“Dawn is an intuitive therapist who gives practical, credible and creative advice in relaxation and battling the pressures of the office and life.”
Eve Baldwin, Vice President of Human Resources, Personal Care Division, Unilever.
“Since January this year (2014) I have been crippled with pain after moving some furniture. I went to see various physiotherapists and a few chiropractors over the months but was not making any real progress and the neck/back pain still persisted. By chance, in September I was recommended to see Dawn whilst on holiday in Cornwall and have never looked back. Over the past few months following her fitness regime in between treatments with her in London, I am now on the road to recovery and making significant progress. With Dawns support I am now able to get back to a normal life without painkillers and truly feel she is very gifted person. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to people with any type of pain and wish her immense success with her new book It’s all about ME.”

It is difficult to accurately describe or do justice to Dawn’s skills. I feel she sees every layer of tension in my body as a personal challenge to break down, release or remove however she can, she really aims to help. I’d had a really tough few years both physically and mentally, when I first went for a massage with Dawn through a friends recommendation. And she was really very good ( its not often you get to say that if you have a regular massage!) even after one treatment I felt completely different and had so much more energy now the tension had lifted I felt happier instantly. The second time she did a variation of the first treatment which not only released old pains and tension instantly, it cleared the soup in my mind and started me on the “why not” conversation which led me to move from the UK with my wonderful partner to a hot climate and it is the BEST decision I ever made. (Thank you Dawn for playing your part, you’re a star!) And if you’re reading this with one raised eyebrow, be warned, she’s good- VERY GOOD 😉

My Reiki Moment… I have to admit to being quite a Dawn-Fan. She treated me throughout & beyond my second pregnancy, has been my saviour when I have experienced acute back pain, as well as to treat more deep-seated stress or trauma-based pain. I think I have probably been treated to most of Dawn’s First Aid tool box over the years – all of which have had resulted in immediate, lasting relief & relaxation. My ‘Reiki moment’ was after I had injured my knee whilst running. I climbed over a stile & must have just turned or twisted in the wrong direction. I felt a deep ‘pop’ somewhere in my knee – no pain, no dramatic tear or crunch, just a slightly odd *twisted* feeling. I ran on a little, then decided it was sensible to walk the rest of the way home. A few hours later I couldn’t stand up. The pain was incredible – it had just crept up on me & I couldn’t put any weight at all on that leg. Dawn chatted a bit (she chats quite a lot… ;)) as she placed her hand gently on my knee. Then she went quiet (which usually means something serious is about to happen). I felt heat from her hand & then a very clear & strong feeling of my knee going round in circles under her hand. It was like the inner working of my knee were rotating. I told her what I could feel & she said ‘I know. But it needs to go the other way. I need to make it turn’. Then she went quiet again & I felt the circling slow, stop, & then start to judder in the opposite direction. It juddered a little more then started flowing freely in the other direction. The pain had completely gone away & it never came back. I have absolutely no idea *what* was going round in circles, & then changed direction… but it worked! I don’t question why or how what Dawn does, works – but it absolutely does. I can’t recommend her highly enough
Have you experienced Reiki? It may well seem to be ‘mumbo jumbo’, but read what Ralph who has a been a scientist for his entire working life had to say in May 2011. This is the exact email I received from Ralph, following a Reiki session with me.
“A year or so ago I was having back and neck pain and was recommended to Dawn. Expecting treatment to those parts of my body where the pain was, I was surprised when Dawn started work on my leg which was apparently the source of the problem. After a period of massage I relaxed whilst Dawn very gently held my foot as I lay on the massage bench. This was when I experienced two very strange feelings. First my knee cap felt as if it was moving up and down despite the fact that there was no apparent reason for it to be doing so. Dawn continued to gently hold my foot but did not move her hand in any way – I was watching totally intrigued.. There was then the extremely strange feeling of something moving up and down my leg from my foot to my groin and back again. It felt as if there were bubbles of something moving inside the leg up and down for three or four minutes – a weird feeling unlike anything I had ever experienced before. The movements then stopped and I have had no repeat of the pain or of the strange movements.”
Wow!! I wanted to probe a little deeper here. This is the email I sent Ralph: “Thank you very much….. I wonder can you give me an additional line or two, from a perspective of logic and your deep understanding of science, and consider that I believe (and you experienced) that it is somehow possible, using your hands whether on the client or off, (although I find it much ‘stonger’ if I am working hands on!) you can move ‘energy’ around the body to re-balance (the pain), and you can feel it and you know its happening you can’t see it even though you should be able to because it obvious!! And afterwards it feels much better, and that relief lasts… I strongly believe there is something there and its just not been figured out yet.
When someone experiences it it is quite incredible, it helps an individual in a very unique and beneficial way. I’m sure somehow it kick starts a ‘circuit’ somewhere that needs a tweak, that that little boost gets it up and running again and it puts ‘it’ right, whatever ‘it’ might be…. that’s the only scientific’ish’ way I can describe it, and if I write that people may well think I’m bonkers (!!) so Ralph, what do think, how would you possibly describe Reiki?” Dawn
This was his reply:
“Amongst other topics I have worked on during my half century as a scientist is energy in its many forms. I fully comprehend the concepts of energy conservation, the different forms in which energy can manifest itself and the ways in which energy can flow from one point in space to another. I am certain that there was some flow of something in my leg whilst Dawn was holding it and this something had an effect. I think I must have experieced a flow of energy in some form which I am unable to identify. What it was, how it started to flow and how it affected my body are all facts that are incomprehensible to me Maybe somebody sometime will have an explanation that either fits conventional science thinking or does not. “
“I had my first Maga Pregnancy massage treatment with Dawn at the Tresanton Hotel when I was three months pregnant with twins. I immediately felt complete confidence in her ability to give a safe and effective treatment. I continued to have regular treatments in London until the 36th week of my pregnancy, which I found enormously beneficial, helping me to cope with the physical stresses of pregnancy and counteracting my insomnia. I resumed regular treatments two months after giving birth by caesarian section – I find them invaluable to help me relax, to realign and to put aside some pampering time for myself!”
I have had a number of treatments with Dawn over the last few years starting with reflexology when I was pregnant with my second child. I had a particularly traumatic birth due to a post-partum haemorrhage & was helicopter-ed to hospital so it was all a bit dramatic! Dawn has helped me tremendously, using a combination of cranial sacral therapy, massage & other healing therapies to ease the physical as well as emotional trauma. I discovered though the process that both my births had had a profound effect on my body & emotional state & Dawn has been absolutely integral to my recovery. I recommend her without reservation on a very personal as well as professional level. She really is amazing & as well as her technical expertise, she has a true gift for helping people.
