Structural Integration (Rolf Method)
“After suffering with severe back pain for over 15 years caused by a herniated disk, I had stopped almost all physical activity. Whilst searching online, I came across Structural Integration and what I saw intrigued me. I had heard that it was going to hurt, but I found it exhilaratingly not painful at all. Vicky was wonderful and I decided to do the full 10 series.
The first light bulb moment came early on when Vicky worked on my legs and knees, I had over-stressed my outer knee and after the session I felt a full range of movement come back. This somehow translated to my whole body. I found I could ‘breathe’ into my low back and expand that area as I breathed, which released a lot of built up tension.
From then on everything got better and better. Each week I felt more and more comfortable with my body. What I found great about Structural Integration was the bliss of the hands on therapy and the guided self awareness it brought about. So, thanks Vicky and thanks to Ida Rolf for an intelligent path to recovery.”

“The subtlety of Vicky’s touch, combined with her breadth of knowledge allows her to work on connections at a very deep level. After each session I found myself moving more gracefully and powerfully, and with much less tension than ever before.”
– David P, Circus Artist & Performer
“I first heard about Rolfing many years ago when I was doing my Alexander Training. I was curious to experience Structural Integration, and was so impressed after the first session that I decided to book for the remainder of the 10 session series.
I was looking for the possibility of experiencing more ease, freedom and flexibility in my body. I found Vicky’s work to be deep and subtle without being painful. I thought her approach was very considerate and caring, and was aware that she was very conscious of working with the whole person rather than trying to ‘fix’ the part she was physically working on.
After the sessions I felt a great sense of well-being, and was interested to experience some of the changes commonly felt after Alexander work, such as lightness, greater ease and freedom of movement. I have no hesitation in recommending Vicky’s work very highly.”

“Over the years I had picked up my supply of ankle, knee and lower back injuries. I go to line dance classes and after each class was experiencing ever worsening pains.
In the sessions, I experienced gentle manipulation in the areas I was “holding”, these would then release. The effect of this would ripple throughout the surrounding tissues and occasionally, old memories would surface. At the end of each session when I stood up my body felt more at ease. I had not realised how simply standing on my feet could be so different.
All those aches and pains have disappeared and my pelvis is now properly aligned. There is a sense of flow and ease throughout my body which has increased with time. My weight is now evenly balanced down each leg (I had been standing lopsided) and I have more energy and more flexibility from my hip area. All in all, I feel more integrated and settled within my body and myself. Fabulous”

“At the end of the 10 series of sessions I felt focused & more energised. I felt I was walking taller.”
– Stephen, Bowen Therapist
“I was excited to discover that this therapy could potentially improve my flexibility. My most noticeable improvements have been in the neck and shoulder area and my posture is the best it’s ever been. I now feel comfortable and centred, holding much less tension than before.
Vicky made me feel welcome and relaxed and she was at once warm and open. A very genuine, caring person. I cannot recommend Vicky highly enough.”

“Absolutely loved my sessions with Vicky! I hadn’t had Craniosacral Therapy before, but her sessions were so healing, nourishing and re-balancing for both body and mind.
I had accumulated a few stress-related symptoms when I first came to see Vicky, both physical & emotional stress, which completely subsided after each session. I felt calmer, more balanced and was able to sleep peacefully & uninterupted through the night again for days afterwards (which I hadn’t been able to for a while). I would absolutely and highly recommend Vicky’s sessions for anyone in need of a physical, mental or spiritual recharge.”
– Gabi F., Actress
“I highly recommend craniosacral sessions with Vicky, I found them very calming and they help me with my digestive system.”
– Heike K., Chi Gung Teacher
“Craniosacral therapy with Vicky Wright helped me to settle after a period of high pressure including the passing of a close friend. Vicky gave me the space, physically and somehow mentally too, to be my best and that’s how I felt after the series of sessions. It took time – it wasn’t an overnight switch – but so worth it. I feel stronger for coming through it the other end, with the help of Vicky’s open, considerate and gentle touch. Thank you.”
