Maddy Hill - REVIBE

Hi, I’m Maddy, the founder of REVIBE. I’m deeply passionate about the power of our mind, body and soul and how we are the healers of our own lives. I am a REVIBE as an interwoven web of self-discovery, self-connection and self-harmony. Sound healing & Sound massage is in the family of bodywork therapy we use at REVIBE. Tibetan crystal bowls are struck, causing the emission of vibrations and frequencies that deeply penetrate through tissues, cells and bone. The sounds produced help to relax the mind whilst the vibrations work deeply through the body. This allows you to feel your body's presence and highlights emotions and discomfort that may need processing, releasing or reconnecting too. This gentle process promotes attention within and encourages your own body’s natural healing process. The impact of sound is incredibly healing and transformational!

    Wendy Walsh - Total Fitness

    Pilates instructor, Movement Therapist using Clinical Pilates, Strength and Conditioning coach, PT and Barre. All round fitness is clearly my aim and my game. As a former dancer I use Clinical Pilates for rehab and prehab either for injuries or prevention and also trying to rebalance bodies over time. I often incorporate my strength and conditioning knowledge and adapt to suit the body / sport I’m looking after, I’d say adaptation is my key skill, I guess as a choreographer I loved making things different and I love using all my skills to help find the right way for you. My key phrases are - strength with length, elongate before you activate, awareness, align and recruit the glutes!

    Brunel Health - Food Intolerance
    Brunel Health - Food Intolerance

    IgG food intolerances (or food sensitivities) can be very difficult to pinpoint. Experienced Nutritionists know that trial and error elimination diets can take months before trigger foods are identified, or simply fail due to client non compliance. With studies(1) showing that food intolerance affects around 20% of the population in industrialised countries and other studies linking it to problems such as IBS, bloating, skin problems, migraines, fatigue and joint pain, there has never been a greater need for an accurate IgG reaction test that is both easy to administer by Doctors and Practitioners, and relevant to their clients. Part of the Food Intolerance Health Profile offered at The Food Teacher Clinic.
