Meet the Therapists

Julia Archer

Reflexologist/Fertility Specialist
MARR MFHT

Available Tuesdays to Saturdays. By appointment only.

I initially trained in massage and reflexology at New College Nottingham before continuing my studies in Cornwall, qualifying in other therapies including Reiki, Indian head massage, hot stone massage, rejuvenating facial massage and deep tissue massage. I have been working as a complementary therapist since 2007.

My passion is reflexology and I find it amazing that the treatment can help to balance and heal the body so effectively. I found myself receiving frequent enquiries from clients seeking reflexology to aid fertility, thus I consequently decided to undergo extensive training in reproductive reflexology (Reproflexology™) to enable me to work confidently with couples trying to conceive naturally or through assisted conception. I am the only therapist in Cornwall using these techniques and have helped many clients to become parents. I have also gained qualifications in pregnancy massage and maternity reflexology, enabling me to help clients through the stages of pre-conception, pregnancy and beyond.

I look forward to supporting you on your journey.

Abbie Willatt

Reiki HealingAvailable Fridays 1.30pm - 5.30pm

I grew up in Stoke on Trent in the West Midlands and came from quite a scientific logical upbringing with no awareness of alternative therapies at all. I was maybe slightly sceptical. That all changed one day when I was in my early twenties and having a tough time. I wondered into a centre called ‘Namaste’ in Camberwell, South London. I was greeted by a lovely lady called Tiffany. Something about her put me at ease and straight away my life story kind of came out! She offered me Reiki – hands on healing. I had no idea what this was but said yes!

The very first time Tiffany started giving me Reiki, I had a stunning vision of pure gold shimmering light coming from her palm chakras entering my aura. Wow! In that moment my brain felt like I was Alice in Wonderland, tumbling down the rabbit hole and I couldn’t believe what I was experiencing. This started me on a journey into self-healing and exploring the spiritual world. I received many Reiki healings.

I then travelled around Thailand, spending time practising meditation and being in wonderful temples. On my travels around the globe I was honoured to spend time with gurus like Amma and Moji. But in my early twenties I still didn’t quite understand the significant of what had happened!

I returned to London and trained with Tiffany in Reiki levels 1,2 and 3 (master training). Each was a huge initiation mainly focusing first on my own self-healing.

I have also had many years working in the mental health field, supporting complex clients with severe mental health, drug and alcohol issues. I witnessed human trauma and the complexities we can create in our lives when things are stuck. This has given me great understanding and experience to further help clients in my Reiki healing.

I feel very blessed to have trained in Reiki and to now offer this profound, gentle and transformative healing to clients. I am particularly drawn to help people with ME /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as I am in recovery from this myself. Reiki is also a great therapy if you are suffering with IBS, insomnia, physical pain, depression, anxiety, low energy or low self love. It is also highly beneficial in recovery post-surgery or during/after chemotherapy.

I am passionate about helping you to be the best version of you.

Rachel Wheatley

Holistic Therapist - Massage, Facials
MFHT

Available on Thursdays 10.15am - 6.15pm

I am fascinated by complementary therapy and it's ability to influence our wellbeing on so many levels. Massage can help to balance our hormones, settle the nervous system, support digestion, or encourage range of movement in joints, amongst many more examples.

As a massage specialist I chose to follow my ITEC Body Massage qualification with advanced training. This included the highly respected Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic and Holistic Massage at DSMB in North Devon, which was equivalent to Foundation Degree level study.This course was designed for practitioners who wish to provide both clinical and general massage therapy.

Helping clients with complex or challenging conditions is something I find deeply rewarding. I've supported people with M.E, Parkinson's, arthritis, and people experiencing difficult menopausal symptoms, PMT, depression and anxiety.

I also love providing massage for simple relaxation - people are endlessly interesting!

Sessions are tailored to the individual and include a thorough, ongoing consultation process looking at your health in a truly holistic sense.

I'm also qualified in Hot & Cold Stone Therapy, Indian Head Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Holistic Facials and Deep Tissue/Remedial massage - each one offering huge potential for a therapeutic approach.

As well as working at Helston Holistic Therapies I also run Roseland Massage in Mid/South-East Cornwall.

Christina Wills

Naturopath

Available Tuesdays 10am - 1pm; Wednesdays 4pm - 7pm; Fridays 11am - 1pm.

In 2014, I completed my Health Science Degree, majoring in Naturopathy (BHSc Nat.) in Sydney Australia. I then moved to Cornwall with my husband and started my practice, Terranova Wellness. I couldn’t be happier living in such a beautiful part of the world, with miles of un-spoilt coastline and forests buzzing with wildlife at my door step. To be amongst nature is a powerful healing tool and vital for optimal health and vitality.

I treat a wide range of ailments. However, I have a special interest in the endocrine system (including adrenal and chronic fatigue), the immune system (including autoimmune and allergies) the digestive system, mental health and reproductive health.

Jack Tempest-Keeping

Acupuncturist - BSc(Hons) Lic Ac MBAcC

Available Mondays 1pm - 5pm.

Jack is a Five Element and TCM trained acupuncturist and uses a combination of acupuncture, cupping, guasha and moxibustion to promote healing in his patients. Through experience, Jack has been astounded at the results TCM has on physical conditions whereas Five Elements has a huge effect on mental emotional strength and wellbeing.

For me, Five Element acupuncture!explains so much of how we are influenced by our environment, by understanding our own natures we can thrive. Traditional Chinese Medicine!also understands how we as mammals!have evolved to fit perfectly with our environment. I believe, by understanding these processes and how they influence our true natures, we can!learn to find our own fine balance,!in this modern era of technology.

I have had fantastic results treating women’s health which has led to my studying for a diploma in gynaecology, obstetrics and fertility which I will complete in April 2019. I find this area very rewarding especially regarding fertility, pregnancy and labour, so I intend to specialise in this area in the future.

I’ve also worked alongside fellow acupuncturists for a study on the effects acupuncture has alongside mainstream cancer treatment with a group at Wessex Cancer Trust in Bournemouth. Results were highly encouraging and are currently being compiled and published. I have had fascinating results with clients being treated whilst receiving chemotherapy. I believe Acupuncture can have a twofold effect; whilst being able to provide relief to any side effects as they arise, I’ve also noticed improvements in the strength of my patients enabling them to better resist the exhaustion and weakness that comes with this rigorous treatment.
