Treatment on back

I initially started Chi Therapy to work on a musculoskeletal issue that wasn’t being fixed through other treatments or stretching.

A couple of days after the first session the pain began to ease and by the end of the second it was gone. Amazing.

It’s the most extraordinary type of treatment. If you’re open and receptive it’s like being plugged into source energy to recharge.

I definitely recommend it.

Chi Workshop Attendee

I find each Chi Therapy session with Master Ha very energising. I have often had an energy blockage but once I have had a session, this blockage has been released and I feel so much better.

The sessions are a real tonic for me and I love having them. Many thanks.

Ann B.

Chi Therapy Client

I feel more alert and focused. My mind is sharper and more awake; like the curtains have been drawn back.

I feel more energised and motivated. It’s about feeling different. Feeling more centred.

I don’t snack anymore. This is the ultimate in self-care.

Chi Therapy for Babies

I had a 2 year old toddler who never slept for longer than 45 minutes in a row. By the end of 2 years I was completely exhausted and at my wit’s end (having tried so many different methods).

During the first treatment with Master Ha, she fell asleep and remained soundly so for 2 hours. After the second treatment (she fell asleep again) she slept that night for 4 hours straight, the longest sleep I had had in 2 years.

After each treatment it improved and improved. And although I can’t say she is one of the world’s greatest sleepers, she does get a solid 8-10 hours a night.

Ruth’s treatments are incredible.

She is very instinctive and sensitive and works with you to enable real change and promote a healthy mind and body.

I felt very blocked and was struggling with pain and poor health but after several treatments with Ruth I felt a real shift and my health improved so much.

I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone. She’s great.

Chi Therapy Client

I have always been interested in personal development. I am not a religious person but I do feel that there is something out there.

I wanted to discover this for myself as I am a very independent, individual person and I have found the ambiance and environment of the Centre to be a real aid to me connecting more deeply with myself.

Support when you need it.

When life brings us challenges and we become triggered emotionally, it is very reassuring to be able to talk with Françoise.

She is very calm and a good listener and helps in putting things in perspective in our life’s journey – I thoroughly recommend a session with her.”
