A big thank you Jayne.
I had my first treatment with Jayne a couple of years ago now, and have to admit I was a little sceptical as to the benefits of “No Hands Massage”. As my job involves carrying heavy equipment and then spending hours at a time sat editing, I needed a deep tissue massage to release knots and tight muscles and wasn’t convinced this could be done with “No Hands”?
After the initial consultation it was only a matter of minutes before i realised how wrong i was. This treatment was EXACTLY what I needed! Jaynes years of experience and her walls full of qualifications in all kinds of holistic treatments combine to give you an almost magical journey of healing, for your body and mind! There are moments of jaw clenching as she works through the knots and releases the tension in the tight muscles, this is absolutely your call as to how deep you want/need the pressure to be. As Jayne knows every single muscle in the body, she doesn’t leave any stone/bone unturned, and it really is a complete, full body, heavenly treatment which has to be experienced to be believed.
I have had many massages and treatments over the years but nothing can be compared to the magical touch of “No Hands”, I came away on a little fluffy cloud feeling free of all my knots and tension!
I have no hesitations what-so-ever in recommending Jayne (also know as the local miracle worker!).
I started with Jayne this year as I have suffered with a bad back for a number of years. Like most people, the back-pain comes and goes until this year where mine persisted. I had been treated by an osteopath prior to Jayne, who targeted one area only and whilst giving relief on the day, the pain returned very soon.
Right from the very first appointment Jayne offers a very professional approach to the specific problem. With an in depth talk about the problem, lifestyle and daily routines that could be related, no stone is left unturned.
The treatment then begins by not just working on the areas of pain, but all the associated areas that you would never realise could affect your back.
My back is majorly improved within a few visits, along with Jaynes advice on daily routines that I can easily do at home.
I can thoroughly recommend Jayne and Touched Therapies for anyone suffering from any sort of back-pain. Book in now, just think of the relief!
When I first went to see Jayne, I was suffering from severe migraines which were occurring at about 4 times a week and they were seriously affecting my day to day life. Jayne was able to pinpoint the problem easily and worked on my neck and shoulders to alleviate the tension in these areas. This was last October and since this session I have not had another migraine.
I now see Jayne regularly every six weeks which keeps on top of the migraine problem, but she also sorts out any other aches and pains I may get along the way. I look forward to the massage sessions now and couldn’t do without them. Jayne is always very friendly and gives lots of good advice. I would highly recommend Jayne to everyone.
We both struggled to find someone who understood our problems, realising that a relaxation massage might send us to sleep during the treatment, but would offer no long term relief from our pain. Then we heard about Jayne Harris of Touched Therapies, who performs a ‘No Hands’Massage. We had absolutely no idea what this meant but were impressed by how highly recommended she came from people we knew. It was worth a try and we booked in to see Jayne for a consultation.
Jayne’s professionalism starts the moment you call for an appointment, she is straight talking, thorough and extremely knowledgeable and no treatment starts without a full consultation on your current and past medical history, lifestyle and details of the problems being experienced. Jayne then goes on to explain that in a ‘No Hands’ Massage, she (mainly) uses her arms, elbows and body weight to locate and treat problem areas. Sounded strange but we were willing to give it a try .Oh my goodness! Why did it take us so long to hear about Jayne? In one treatment she managed to give my husband more mobility and pain relief than he has had in years and she unlocked my shoulders and neck so that we both had our best nights sleep in ages.
Needless to say we are both converts and now visit Jayne on a regular basis. ‘No Hands’ Massage, I now know, is one of the most powerful and effective ways to release all of the tension from your spine, hips and neck and through our own personal experience I can tell you it definitely works!
The massage itself takes a little getting used to, especially as body weight is used, however, this seems to be the key to its success. How does it work? The only real way to know and understand and feel the benefits is to feel it for yourself. I could talk and talk and try to explain, however nothing will explain better or convince you more than you experiencing this wonderful therapy personally. I can guarantee it won’t be your last!
Each treatment leaves me ‘floating’ and so relaxed, I now sleep too well!
I put the improvement in my toes down to the Reflexology sessions and would recommend this treatment for anyone suffering problems with their feet. The treatments are relaxing and beneficial.
I only have the highest regard for Jayne. Through her exceptional treatments and knowledge, I am now relieved of symptoms which I have ‘lived with’ for many years.
I had Menieres Disease which left me with a constant ‘pressure’ in my head, deafness in my left ear & ‘muffled’ hearing. Often resorting to lip reading. Jayne has given me no less than 100%+ on every treatment.
My life now has changed dramatically. The pressure in my head has completely gone along with the muffled sounds. I have regained my hearing ‘clarity’ and could never thank Jayne enough.
I was recommended by a friend to consult Jayne Driver after suffering for some time with discomfort in muscles and joints in my legs. I had never been a great believer in massage being a cure for aches and pains, thinking of it as more of a luxury than a therapy! Jayne completely alleviated the problems after 4 or 5 sessions but I am now committed to the idea of having regular sessions to ensure that the debilitating discomfort I was previously experiencing does not return. I am much more informed now on how beneficial deep massage can be and have already started sending family members for sessions.
Touched Therapies WOW what can I say, Jayne managed to get to the damaged tissue and fixed me in no time. It wasn’t just the massage, it was the professional consultation I received, full of advice and guidance that filled me full of confidence that the problem I’d had for many months could be resolved. The fact that Jayne came to my house was a testament to her commitment to her profession.
Thank you Jayne Driver & Touched Therapies.
I have been a client of Jayne’s for over two years and as a graphic designer, I spend alot of my job sat in front of a computer screen which means that I get a lot of tension in my shoulders and back due to being in a seated hunched position. I also do a lot of Filipino Martial Arts which builds tension in the same areas. I had been suffering from recurring shoulder and neck pain for a while and upon visiting Jayne it became apparent how bad my muscle tension was. Jayne’s techniques no hands techniques have considerably reduced the muscle knotting and the level of comfort I now have has increased exponentially.
I cannot rate Jayne her highly enough for everything she has done for me.
I was having trouble with my back and hips. It felt like I had “rocks” in my lower back when I moved around. After a few sessions with Jayne my back and hips felt great. Jayne also educated me as to what was causing my back problems. I also had a sports injury. After a few intense massage courses and regular visits I am able to sustain a normal work out.
Thanks to Jayne I feel like I am in my 30’s again (not my 90’s).
My back stopped hurting late evening. ps. My Pupil said I smelled nice!!
I heartily recommend Jayne for all ages.
I feel relaxed and refreshed following (a) treatment.
Thank you to Touched for sponsoring my Tough Mudder team! your knowledge and support means a great deal.
I have had chronic problems for many years with stiffness and tension in my neck & shoulders. Apart from being generally uncomfortable, this also adversely affected my sleep. Over the years I have been treated by a number of masseurs, plus the odd osteopath/Alexander practitioner, with little or no success.
A friend recommended Jayne Driver, who instantly honed in on the problem areas. After the first two or three sessions I saw a big difference. While the problem still recurs, it is now less acute and I am certainly sleeping much better. I now see Jayne every couple of weeks as part of an ongoing maintenance regime.
Jayne has also made me more aware of the importance of good hydration in maintaining a healthy body and she keeps me on my toes in this respect, as I know she can tell straight away when I’ve not been drinking enough fluid.
Jayne has focused on my individual problem and helped me start to identify and address the causes (self-inflicted!) rather that just treat my symptoms. She is also local, which for me avoids a long drive to and from appointments. Jayne is a lovely, friendly and extremely professional person and I would certainly recommend her”.
I first came to Jayne through my love of No Hands massage and searching for a ‘suitable’ therapist. I was living in Halifax at the time and so used to make the 60 min journey each way for my treatment, but boy was it worth it!
I suffer with upper back, neck and shoulder tension, along with other aches and pains and as soon as i get on the couch at Jayne’s clinic, I am ready to experience her skills. The treatment helps me to relax both mentally and physically and boy does it work on my tension. The best way to describe it is it’s like being gently steam rollered, in a pleasure able way, where I am in full control if the depth and pressure, absolute bliss. It must be iIhave been attending treatments once a month for 2 years!
As a result of running on the fells, up to 30 miles per week, I started to suffer from Aches and Strains to my IT Band, Quads, Hamstrings, Glutes and Groin, in fact just about most places have had a bashing!
Jayne’s’ knowledge and effective treatments have not only kept me running but I believe have made me stronger.
First Place in the 2011 Lake District Mountain Trial Short Course is proof of that!
I have been having massage treatments by Jayne for 12 months, having first met at a charity event she was helping at in July 2009. Jayne is very talented and is without a doubt the best masseur I have been to. She manages to combine ultimate professionalism with genuine friendliness very well.
The treatments themselves have always been effective, whether that is hard work on ‘pressure points’ or sheer relaxation in a reflexology session.
I can’t recommend her highly enough!
She has the skills and experience to deal with all situations. If you need repairing, she can re-balance your body and help you recover. If you need an energy boost, she can provide that too. Maybe you just want to relax and connect with wherever you want to go. Jayne can help you do that too.
I see her regularly for all those treatments as part of my regular massage maintenance.
I always leave feeling energised, happier, refreshed and younger.”
I was initially a bit sceptical about the benefits of massage therapy, however, Jayne continued to badger me and I reluctantly went along. I am now converted! Thanks to Jayne’s expertise and regular massage treatments she has helped to release and relax my muscles further than you could ever possibly do with stretching routines alone. She is very professional and her sense of humour in acutely painful situations is always appreciated!
She has managed to keep me on the pitch so far this season and has made it possible for me to play without worrying about the physical aspect of my game. After a massage treatment there is immediate relief from soreness and inflammation and the next day I am able to train without any tired or aching muscles.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jayne’s ‘Rub Down’ to any serious sports minded person or to anyone else who would benefit from a really good professional massage.
2 days after my 1st massage I went to bed with no pain killers and was shocked to be woken by my alarm clock, rather than pain for the 1st time in 4 years!
