what people say…

Sandra has been training me on a one to one basis for the last 7 years. Quite simply, Sandra’s ability to both impart knowledge in her specialist areas of Pilates, body posture, body awareness, injury avoidance and rehab along with cardio, yoga and general mindfulness is second to none.

The positive impact on my physical , mental and spiritual well being , through training with her is difficult to put down into words.
Let me try …

She is factually highly qualified in all of the above , but additionally has a way of personally tailoring the sessions that show an understanding of my psyche – the combination of the two is the magic ingredient that means I gain the physical benefits whilst never getting bored and get counselling sessions and a friend to boot. I am one of many.

Mark Cutter, 57

Sandra Bickmore is the finest smartest practitioner/ healer that I have ever come across.

Last year I was unfortunate to have had two falls that resulted in two major operations, a shoulder rotor cuff repair and thumb ligament repair.vI initially received weekly physio treatments curtesy of the NHS, later on I found Sandra… My NHS physio treatments would involve going to the hospital where by I would be asked how far I could raise my arm and they would then demonstrate a new exercise which I would be asked to copy and thenvI would go away and practice the movement. I was told 3 months after NHS treatment that I may never regain full use of my arm. I believed this was true until I came along to Sandra’s studio.

Sandra’s treatment involved working on me on a total one to one basis, she would also ask me what movements I had, however instead of just showing me what to do with me just copying the movement, Sandra would hold my arm and work it safely to where it should go, ‘Creating memory’ with the arm, Sandra would place me on her machines (I call them bondage machines!) and work each arm leg individually, she would hold my arm into correct positions, she would make sure that I stood in the right positions. Without her help I confidently know that I would never have regained use of my arm.

She worked a complete miracle. I found her one to one sessions something to look forward to, her treatment room was relaxing and inviting, her knowledge of the physical anatomy is outstanding, she also offer a spiritual approach which creates a aura of wellbeing.

You will leave Sandra practice feeling that your money has been well spent and invested, you will feel calm, relaxed
