Hello! I’m Sarah, Halcyon’s owner and principle Therapist.
I have been interested in holistic therapies from an early age, after I grew up around my Aunt’s homeopathy clinic. In 2006, a friend left her job to set up her own therapy business and offered me a Reiki session to help with pain I had been experiencing on and off for years. I knew it would be relaxing but, I’m ashamed to say now, I wasn’t expecting it to help with my symptoms. I was
amazed! Straight after the treatment, I bent down to pick up my car keys, which doesn’t sound like anything but it was the first time I’d been able to bend down for months! By the weekend, I had signed up with Reiki Evolution in York to do my Level I qualification. Level II Reiki followed in 2007 and I treated my friends and family for a couple of years before moving to Lancashire, where I began to treat my work colleagues in our lunch break.
I really enjoyed giving the Reiki treatments, but
soon realised that some conditions required some physical interventions, as well. Learning more about Eastern and Western complimentary therapies, I decided to continue my qualifications with Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Massage from the School of Natural Health Sciences.
I became a ReikiMaster (Teacher) in 2010, having transformed my hobby into a professional enterprise (“Halcyon”) in 2009. I began to rent a room at a local beauty salon and treated clients in
evenings and weekends alongside my “9-5 job”.
In 2012, I qualified as a K.O.R.E. Therapy consultant, which has transformed the way in which I work – as a treatment system, it makes so much sense to me; combining Eastern and Western techniques and balancing physical and energy work to provide effective treatment and longer-lasting impact.
I left my career in social care earlier this year and
decided to run Halcyon full time. I am also now studying for a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to support my clients suffering with stress and emotional issues.
I hope that you find the information you’re looking for on my site. Check out my Facebook page for any current deals. Or if you want and additional information, please feel free to drop me a line.
Integrating the systems of KORE Therapy into all of our treatments means that you’ll get something different from us! Every appointment starts with an assessment to determine the root cause of the injury or ailment – it’s not always as obvious as you’d think! From there, Sarah designs the course of treatments around your needs, using the full range of therapies and techniques available to her through her wide-ranging qualifications.
Because of this, we can help with the symptoms of a vast array of illnesses. Here is a list of some we have already seen success with:
Kore Therapy is an award-winning approach to holistic and complimentary medicine. KORE uniquely integrates Western and Eastern medicine; by using muscle tests, Sarah can identify problem areas in the nervous system that are often caused by physical imbalance. These imbalances lead to various conditions of both the mind and the body including pain, poor sleep, fatigue and chemical changes that eventually feed through to emotional issues.
Your KORE treatment is tailored especially to meet your needs and could be made up of a range of methods, such as cupping, TuiNa massage, QiGung or CranioSacral therapy.
Reiki is an energy system, originally designed to support self-development and self-awareness but also used as a treatment on others. It is a wonderful, peaceful treatment. The client lies or sits, fully clothed, while the Therapist places their hands on or around the body, directing healing energy to the areas where it is most needed to support the client’s recovery.
Reiki is an incredibly effective treatment for a range of ailments. It is especially beneficial for people who wish to:
- Experience peace of mind and inner calm
- Relieve stress and anxiety
- Bring a sense of balance and wholeness
- Explore their spiritual side
- Let go of emotional baggage
Reflexology is an extremely effective form of massage, relating to the ‘reflex points’ on the sole of the foot. These points correspond to the organs and systems in the body, and are linked to those organs through ‘energy channels’, ‘zones’ or ‘meridians’. When illness or imbalance occurs, the corresponding ‘energy channels’ become blocked. Reflexology Massage aims to remove these blocks, thus allowing the energy to flow freely again.
Reflexology will reduce stress and tension in the individual, improve circulation and cleanse the body of toxins and impurities. It is also renowned for revitalizing the energy, and is often used as preventative healthcare. In other words, this enjoyable therapy will help to balance the whole system.
Baby Massage is a wonderful treatment designed to relax Baby and help promote sleep. But did you know, if can also help Baby develop healthy muscles, reflexes and coordination as well?
Sarah’s qualifications means that she can also perform abdominal massage on babies – gently overcoming the effects of colic and restoring a natural balance to the gut. This not only helps with discomfort, bloating and wind, it can also clear up blotchy or itchy skin.
“Excellent. Definitely recommend it to anyone who has any aches and pains.”
“My back feels a lot better. I managed 50 miles on the bike this Sunday with no pain! Many thanks for your help.”
“Hi Sarah, thanks very much for the work you did the other day. My back felt a lot better yesterday. Back at work now.”
“Following a cruciate ligament tear in my knee I found myself suffering with a torn cartilage which had trapped itself in the joint. Sarah manipulated the joint and freed off the cartilage with no pain whatsoever and it was trouble free right up until my operation. Would highly recommend her services!”
“I saw Sarah for a couple of treatments in the summer of 2009 and after those visits the pain in my back had gone completely and I was able to bend to put my socks on again! Sarah is very professional and explains the process thoroughly.”
“Halcyon was a fabulous experience in a relaxed setting. Sarah managed to work her magic on my painful lower back muscles and the tension in my neck. I was instantly less stiff and the day after treatment I had no pain at all. Thanks Sarah I’ll definitely be back!!”
“Amazing !! Instant pain relief after the treatment, Sarah is really friendly and explains everything as she goes along – I would recommend to anybody and everybody”
“I am more mobile, need fewer prescription drugs and have more energy. I found Sarah’s manner relaxed, caring and thoroughly professional and she soon put me at east.”
Highly recommended!”-Rachel, Preston
