"I have been having massage with Raziya since October 2011. At first it was a treat and a trial, but now I can feel the benefits physically and mentally. I am hooked. I have repetitive strain in my right shoulder and am feeling the benefits. I would highly recommend treatments with Raziya, she has helped me on so many levels. Everyone should take some time out for themselves and get in touch with their spiritual side, no matter how sceptical you are, it works!"

"I had my first massage session with Raziya recently as a gift from my husband and I have to say I was very impressed!  I had my first massage session with Raziya recently as a gift from my husband and I have to say I was very impressed!"I have experienced continuous back complaints since an accident I suffered in 2003. I noticed a positive change immediately after seeing Raziya and was further impressed by her knowledge not to mention passion she has for her work. I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone, I have myself already booked to see her again and will continue to do so!"

"This woman is extraordinary!  I have to say that I tend to be somewhat sceptical when it comes to healing but my recent experience with Raziya Sacranie has left me slightly puzzled and fully amazed!

 

I have a low back condition that I have had so many times now that I can tell with almost certainty that when it’s as bad, then I am likely stuck with it for at least 2- 3 weeks.  Last night my low back pain was so bad I could barely stand, sitting wasn’t much better, for the last two nights I’ve been unable to turn in bed without pain waking me up, and getting up in the morning or to go to the loo has been agony.

 

When I got to Raziya’s house, she asked me to lie on her treatment couch (which was a real struggle) and proceeded to do what she called ‘pulsing’, a very pleasant rocking of various parts of my body.  I did notice that her hands were extraordinarily hot though, at several points I could feel the heat through the towels!  The next thing she did was get me in a comfortable position and just laid her hands over the painful area, (which was like having a hot water bottle there!) and did nothing but breathe in a very relaxing way!

 

I spent the rest of the evening in my usual agony and creaked to bed.

 

 At 5.30am I woke to the strange sensation of… no pain! I laid there for a while gingerly testing various movements, but nothing hurt! Just a vague ache where the pain had been! I decided to get up, and just got straight up with no pain! To say I’m gob smacked is an understatement.  I fully expected this pain to last at least the next two weeks, and never has it gone from so bad to so good in such a short time!

 

I don’t know what she did, but this is definitely beyond coincidence.  I can only say I am amazed and grateful."

“Ever since my wonderful visit to you which was only Tuesday I have experienced the “feel good factor”!  I so enjoyed the massage and it has stimulated me mentally too.  It matters to me greatly the atmosphere I’m in and the whole experience was wonderful.

Many thanks again.  I certainly feel more relaxed and the neck tension has definitely eased.”

“In February this year I had a problem with my lower back and contacted Raziya. I had read a piece in the local paper about her work and rather than wait weeks to see my NHS Physiotherapist I had an appointment within two days.  Raziya’s treatment, help and advice after two visits helped sort out my back. Eight months on I have a problem with my right hip which is not related to my previous back problem and booked in with Raziya.  After one visit I feel a lot better and I will be making another appointment.  I have recommended Raziya to friends and colleagues as she has helped with my condition which was causing me a lot of pain”.

"I was first introduced to Raziya in November 2008 by somebody who thought I’d benefit from ‘alternative therapy’ – a few massage sessions as a treat to myself to lift the spirits, relax and de-stress.  I was a complete sceptic, not my ‘thing’ at all: I’d be lying to say I was looking forward to the first session, but I had enough curiosity to give it a go with an open mind.  Well, I can’t believe I have been missing out on this all my life – I am now a complete convert.  This is the one thing I have found which relaxes the mind, lets the ‘good feelings’ take over.  I leave with a sense of ‘nothing can phase me’; I have had comments on how chilled out I appear in the days that follow – guess that says it all!  I would highly recommend Raziya for her massage therapy – she works wonders, and has certainly reached her remit on me.  An experience everyone should give a go at least once in their lives!"

“I was so surprised that such a gentle touch could create such deep results.  Getting small things,  like the ears massaged was especially relaxing.  Thank you.”

“Raziya has been a real inspiration to me.  Within a couple of hours of her assistance my massage work has transformed.  Raziya helped by watching me to work on a client, she made suggestions to help with my posture and to feel more flow when giving massage. 

Watching her ocean like style really reminded me of how important it is to relax & flow when doing massage. 

 

How you feel when you are doing a treatment is passed through your hands, it is essential that you are comfortable and happy.  Raziya said to "feel the dance in your massage".  Drawing from this, it reminded me of sensations of doing Qi Gong, 5 rhythm dance and yoga.  I can now bring these wonderful aspects in my life into the art of my massage techniques.

Since our session my clients have noticed my massage has improved.  A friend, Rosie, who is a massage therapist I exchange treatments with, is now wanting to train with Raziya since feeling this transformation in my massage.

 

I hope to train with Raziya's Massage and Bodywork training school in Lomi Lomi massage this year.  I have also noticed after seeing Raziya I always feel more determined and energised, she is a life coach and I guess that's why :)

 

Thank you Raziya

 

with love"

“Thank you for a fabulous massage course in November.  I’ve spent my Christmas budget saving for a massage table, so my family will have to have my massage practice for pressies!”

"Raziya, thank you so much for the course on Saturday.  Steve and I enjoyed it immensely. Steve would never have contemplated doing any kind of hands on course so I took a chance on buying the gift voucher.  He absolutely loved it.

 

I felt the day was arranged perfectly.  Firstly, the introduction, giving us a little information on the history and benefits of massage followed by a very clear step by step demonstration on a small section of the massage routine.  Then being able to experience and perform those movements on each other before moving on. 

 

The handbooks are extremely informative without being blinded with science.  The instruction for each movement is very clear for us to refer to when need be.

 

We both felt very comfortable and relaxed from the moment we arrived.  I do hope many more couples will benefit from your expertise and ease of teaching.

 

Thank you."

“With some trepidation, Liz & I arrived at Raziya’s ‘Massage for Couples’ workshop, unsure of what to expect.   Raziya quickly put us all at our ease, and after telling us quite a lot about the benefits of massage and its background, she asked for a volunteer, and one of us readily agreed!

 

It was a fascinating experience, looking on while she demonstrated the various techniques, and then as couples we got to practice on each other while she went from one couple to the other, correcting and encouraging.  When you’ve been the ‘model’ it’s easy to comment on what your partner is doing, so he or she can get it right – the difference is considerable.

 

Throughout the day she ‘used’ each of us to demonstrate the massage techniques on various parts of the body – for the nervous, modesty was preserved throughout, and none of us felt any embarrassment.

 

All in all, the day was a wonderfully relaxing experience in itself – we discovered that it’s almost as nice to give a massage as it is to receive it.

 

In the two weeks or so since then, we’ve only had a couple of opportunities to put any of it into practice – in the words of John Lennon “Life is what happens while you’re making other plans” but a forthcoming holiday should put that right!

 

Life continues to keep getting in the way, but we have been managing lots of massages, to great effect!

"I am completely new to Yoga, and have only been going for 8 weeks, I FEEL AMAZING!!!

I suffer from arthritis and have reduced my medication and can feel the difference in my joints, and despite the cold weather I'm getting very little pain, where as this time last year could barely walk.

Raziya does the sessions at a pace where you can do as much or as little as you want and it is tailored to everyone in the session which is brilliant!

I can't do without my weekly sessions now!"

"Raziya's yoga classes are excellent.  They are very relaxing, but they do produce noticeable results.  After just 8 weeks my posture has improved significantly.
I can thoroughly recommend them."
