"I must congratulate you all on a well organised and chilled event. I have slept for England this weekend as a result of feeling utterly relaxed and pampered. The events and choices provided gave me an insight into other alternative therapies that I had previously never considered or indeed known about! The whole evening was brilliant and I just wanted to passed on my appreciation for a well-run evening and look forward to booking on for further treatments."

CRANIO SACRAL THERAPIST
EXPLORE THE POWER OF CRANIOSACRAL HEALING
Craniosacral Healing is a potent yet gentle combination therapy that helps to establish harmony and balance throughout the mind, body and soul, resulting in a wonderful sense of wholeness and wellbeing.
It is performed here at The Windmill Studio Centre by our brilliant therapist, Barbara Sharma.
Barbara, a former pharmacy manager, benefits from a background in conventional medicine together with a deep passion and understanding of the power of complementary medicine, an interest which began for Barbara over 30 years ago.
The term ‘cranio-sacral’ comes from the word ‘cranium’, the head, and ‘sacrum’, just above the tailbone. The treatment, however, is not restricted to this area alone as it impacts the entire body - physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.
Barbara combines Craniosacral Therapy with natural Healing, helping patients on a journey into the world of the soul, where inner peace prevails.
Craniosacral Healing is also an amazing resource for expectant mothers, new mums and their babies.
The hormonal changes that take place when pregnant, as well as the tumultuous changes within the physical body can be managed harmoniously and gently by Craniosacral Healing, alleviating stress and tension in both mum-to-be and unborn baby.
This tender treatment can
• ease backache
• improve digestive problems of pregnancy
• provide much-needed relaxation
For babies suffering from colic, sleeping trouble and digestive problems and new mums facing a whirlwind of new physical and emotional challenges, Craniosacral Healing can also be a valuable resource.
Barbara works on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at Windmill Studio Centre

LOUIE DONOVAN PHOTOGRAPHY
Louie is a female photographer that has operated in the local area for some years. She is a fine art trained photographer who's style is both modern & contemporary, but with a classic twist that can only come from experience and perfecting the art of photography.
In her portrait photography she brings a subtle eye to those important moments that can only be captured for a fleeting moment. As a Mother she brings an understanding and a warmth to put children at ease. Family portraits are treated in the same manner.
Newborn and Babies
As a NLP4Kids Practitioner, I work with families in Pinner and surrounding areas who have identified that their child is not feeling or behaving as they used to. Often the anxieties children have, affect them in more than one way. Some may have problems sleeping at night, whilst others seem to have subtle changes in their personality that might cause them to become shy, refuse to go to sleep at night or develop anxiety related problems or behavioural problems.
Some of my work involves coaching both parents and child on an emotional level. At other times we may need to look together into other health related triggers, considering your child’s diet and routines as well.
I help children to overcome their sleep problems, improve confidence and anxiety – very often these things are interlinked and making a change in one will have an immediate positive impact on the other.
You can contact me today to arrange a free 45-minute consultation.
I offer workshops for children and parents.

BOWEN THERAPY & EMMETT TECHNIQUE
Davina Butler ITEC, Embody, CTha, BTPA
Davina is a fully qualified and experienced Practitioner in Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) which is a form of Bowen Therapy and is a member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA) and is also a Practitioner of the Emmett Technique.
NST Bowen therapy is a remarkably effective professional bodywork technique, that when applied, initiates a process of natural auto-regulation to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body. The resultant effect of this is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well being.
Bowen therapy is gentle and therefore appropriate for everyone, from new-born babies to the elderly. It consists of gentle rolling movements over muscles, tendons and ligaments at precise points on the body using fingers and thumbs. The process releases energy, sending impulses to the brain to trigger the body’s own healing systems.
This remarkable technique can be quick and effective in helping the following:
Muscular and skeletal problems in neck, shoulder, hip,
knees, ankle and back, including sciatica
Frozen shoulder, tennis and golf elbow, R.S.I.
and carpal tunnel
Whiplash and sports injuries
Problems with posture and body alignment
Migraine and recurring headaches
Bell's Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease
and the difficulties suffered by stroke victims
Respiratory, bronchial and related conditions
such as hay fever and asthma
Digestive problems such as IBS
Hormonal, pregnancy and fertility problems
Stress management, ME, fatigue and sleep problems
To enhance the treatment Davina can also incorporate the Emmett Technique which involves the application of light pressure at particular points and in sequences that enables the gentle physical release of muscle groups.
