Tension and relaxation is natural, just like night and day, the inner and the outer. Our senses are stimulated daily through TV, radio, computer, mobile phones etc. Which may create permanent stress and possible consequences, like back/neck problems, head aches or heart attacks. Since these demands are unlikely to diminish we need to find new ways of being with ourselves and our stress.

CranioSacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral therapy?
Is it a head massage?
it is a non invasive, non manipulative treatment option for stress, injuries, bereavement, pre and post operation support.

CranioSacral Motion can be felt as a subtle tide like rhythm throughout the whole body. Every cell pulsates as it expresses the CranioSacral Motion.
Freely mobile CranioSacral Motion is essential to the health of all the other systems of the body and to our physical, mental and emotional well being.

How does it work?
CST engages in co-operative motion with the client's body to express where problematic areas/patterns are. It triggers held patterns to transform/release and self-repair. Craniosacral therapy is attracting interest for its gentle yet effective approach, working with the body's natural capacity to self-repair.

CST and you
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) works with the cellular memory of the body's tissues and fluids. Gentle hand contact encourages the body to enter a corrective phase towards balance and harmony, reorganizing and realigning the body's systems at its own pace and ability.

The therapist listens, via their hands, to identify and treat physical, mental and emotional pain and tension patterns in the body. These findings show that every cell in a healthy body expresses rythmic movement which is fundamental to life.

CST supports other forms of treatment both conventional and complementary.

What happens during treatment
During treatment, you will lie fully clothed on a treatment table, and experience the light touch of the therapist's hands.
Treatments usually last 45 minutes, most chronic conditions benefit from a course of treatment weekly or fortnightly. Your treatment options will be discussed at you initial consultation, however most people usually feel benefit and relaxed after one treatment.

Mother, babies and children
  • One of the therapy's most appreciated qualities is its capacity to resolve experiences by mothers and babies during and after birth.
  • Working with mothers and babies in the Craniosacral context is a privilege, particularly since it can have such profoundly beneficial effect so early in life.
  • By restoring imbalances before they become chronically anchored, Craniosacral therapy enhances healthy growth and future development. This paves the way for greater self-esteem throughout childhood and later life


  • I believe the mind and body are so closely linked that whatever is done to one will have an effect on the other. Many of our body functions such as digestion, breathing and circulation may improve with Craniosacral therapy . Mentally and physically you may feel sharper, more aware, relaxed, calm and alert.>.


    Usui Shiki Ryoho

    Life moves at such a fast pace and many demands are placed on us by work and our personal lives, we often take our health for granted and we do not listen to our bodies. Give your body a treat, help to restore balance to you body and mind, ease physical symptoms with a gentle, relaxing treatment.

    I am a full insured member of the Reiki Association

    Reiki is relaxing and energizing. It will work on the most important issue first and gradually progress through until natural balance is restored to the body. In cases of terminal illness, a sense of peace and acceptance is often gained during the time remaining

    What is Reiki?
    Reiki is a natural hands-on therapy using 'universal life energy'.
    The first syllable 'rei' means wisdom or knowledge.
    The second syllable 'ki' is the vital life force energy within and around all living things.

    Reiki works with this vital force, much like acupressure, acupuncture, tai chi and yoga does but using its own unique methods.
    'Ki' is channeled through the practitioner's hands. It is more than a physical therapy, it is a holistic system of balancing and harmonizing all aspects of the person .

    What do people feel during treatments?
    Each person experiences a Reiki treatment differently, depending on his or their individual needs at the time.
    Often people feel a deep sense of relaxation and peace during a session. some may become aware of heat, tingling, pulsation or other sensations, whilst other may have a physical or emotional reaction, indicating that the body's healing processes are working and balance is being restored to the system.

    A Reiki Treatment
    For treatment, the client will lie fully clothed on a treatment table, and experience the light touch of the practitioner's hands.

    Treatments usually last 1 hour, most chronic conditions benefit from a course of 2-4 consecutive treatments. Usually treatments are weekly or fortnightly. Your treatment options will be discussed at your initial consultation, however most people usually feel benefit and relaxed after one treatment.

Animal Communication Therapy

All welcome

About Millie and ACT

I believe I have always communicated with animals, as I little girl I was aware of animals feelings. I was born in Africa, grew up on a farm in Zimbabwe.

I am a fully insured independant Animal Communicator

I will respond to any queries you have as soon as I can by phone or email.

What is Animal Communication?
Animal Communication is a language of feelings rather than a language of words. It is one of the most natural forms of communication. Every thought that we or our animals have creates a specific feeling. Sharing these feelings opens a world where we can become closer to animals and help them on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

We share our thoughts daily with our animals
  • Have you notice when you think of taking the dog for a walk. It is already waiting at the door?
  • If you are thinking of taking the cat to the vet, they are nowhere to be found.

    Working from a place of stillness and awareness, the Communication allows space and time for the animal and human to express their needs or purpose to create a change and an understanding in the relationship

    I am in the process of putting together teaching animal communication workshops.


    "To who it may concern. I would like to make a statement that Millie Wood Swanepoel helped our 'baby' ferret to settle down, become much calmer and stop biting everyone that picked her up. She has settled into being a lively happy young ferret with a much move relaxed body. Well done Millie." Marianne, London
