I have been passionate about the human body and healthcare since I was at school, completing my first degree in Psychology at Durham University and working for some years in medical publishing in London before embarking on a further degree in Osteopathy in 2003.
I live in Hertford with my husband and two children of primary school age, enjoying a lot of walking and cycling around the local area.
I am committed to helping patients through painful times, setting them back on course with osteopathic treatment, as well as tailored advice on stretching, mobilising activities and exercise. Osteopaths treat back and neck pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, sports injuries, arthritic pain, work related pain, muscular conditions and headaches.
I have a special interest in pregnancy and postnatal healthcare and have undertaken postgraduate training in the diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy related pain.
I firmly believe that pain or discomfort should not just be accepted as part of life, and I will always explain how I plan to treat each problem and why, so that patients can start to take back control of their situation.
The Hertford Osteopath is my established clinic, close to Hertford North station, and I am very happy to now be able to offer osteopathic treatment more centrally at The Secret Space.
There's a lot more information about what and how osteopaths treat, including patient testimonials, at www.hertfordosteopath.co.uk - or give me a call on 01992 304913 as I'm always happy to have an initial chat to discuss whether osteopathy is right for you.

I am fully qualified in Full Body Massage, Pregnancy Massage and Hot Stone Massage. I also hold a Reiki certification, and can include it within the treatment if the client wishes.

Reflexology is a therapy which I am passionate about and I have been practicing for nearly twenty years. This came about after going through a very stressful period I my life and after regular treatments on my feet I felt I could cope more with life’s stresses and strains. It was this that led me to qualify as a Reflexologist. After many years working on and off in London, I moved to Hertford with my husband and three children and resumed practicing Reflexology here in Hertford. In 2015 I came across and trained in Facial Reflexology. It can give the same results as foot reflexology by using pressure points on the face. A great alternative for those who are sensitive about their feet. At the same time, I qualified in the Ziggie Bergmann Zone Face Lift. This came about after making enquiries into botox and facial fillers. I like many others am scared of needles and also not too sure about the contents of the products going into my body. I wanted to find a more natural approach and this seemed to fit the criteria. It is a 12 week programme combining reflexology, pressure point massage and Native American techniques to create the Zone Face Lift. It can leave you feeling blissed out, with a smoother face to match. It is a great natural alternative for those who don’t want botox or dermal fillers. I am pleased to be offering all three therapies here at the Secret Space. To make a booking please contact The Secret Space or for more information please contact Martina on 079890 556852

I've always been passionate about bodywork, starting out my career in 2009 when I completed a course in Swedish massage. Moving on to obtain my diploma in Remedial Massage from the Melbourne Institute of Massage Therapy, it allowed me to grow and work in day spas, clinics and at events both here and in Australia. Most of the people I work with are struggling with back and shoulder pain, muscle tension or tightness, injuries and people who are experiencing and any form of stress or anxiety. Utilising a variety of Remedial techniques along with deep tissue massage or a relaxing Swedish massage, all treatments are tailored to each individual for optimal results. As a therapist, the combination of analysing a problem and using a hands-on approach to improve the clients wellbeing is incredibly rewarding. I aim to help my clients feel more relaxed, improve posture, improve range of motion and to alleviate pain.

I have been practising acupuncture since 2004 and continue to be rewarded and inspired by its ability to restore balance physically, mentally and emotionally. I see a wide range of patients from children with hay fever to couples wanting to start a family, and from migraine sufferers to people incapacitated by painful backs. A significant part of my practice is in the area of fertility and pregnancy. I have helped many couples on their journey to becoming parents and am very experienced at supporting those using assisted reproductive therapies such as IUI, IVF and ICSI.

BSc Hons Homeopathy, LCHE, MARH, CEASE Cert

I have always been interested in complementary therapies. Over 20 years ago I saw I homeopath and the results were phenomenal. Amazed by this gentle yet powerful non-toxic therapy, I started studying homeopathy soon after. I’ve been a homeopath for 11 years now and am humbled by its ability to help restore the body to balance, resulting in emotional, mental and physical wellness.

I have also studied CEASE Therapy, a homeopathic detox protocol that helps remove toxins that are obstacles to cure within the body. These obstacles can range from environmental and household toxins to previous medications that are preventing the body from maintaining a state of health. Tis therapy is particularly beneficial to children with reoccurring illnesses and developmental delays.

I tailor my treatment to each Client’s personal life story, and their presenting symptoms. I have experience in helping Clients with various health issues, including anxiety, depression, female hormonal issues, digestive issues and acne. I love treating children, they respond extremely well to homeopathy and it’s wonderful to watch them return to a state of wellness and to thrive.

I offer family discounts for 2 or more members of the family.

For a free confidential call to find out whether homeopathy could help you, please call me on 07913229385.

Claire Sangster is a holistic therapist and (sometimes) artist. She has trained extensively with John F. Barnes in the USA in the practice of Myofascial Release (MFR). Claire is also an experienced reflexologist, a Level 2 Reiki practitioner and trained massage therapist, but these days almost exclusively practices MFR. As well as offering general MFR, Claire offers both Women’s Health and Men’s Health treatment, utilising recognised myofascial release techniques to treat pelvic pain, pelvic floor tightness and the associated symptoms. MFR is a gentle, hands on therapy that works at releasing restrictions in the body, restoring motion and relieving pain and other symptoms. Every person has their own set of restrictions, that in severe cases is comparable to wearing a personalised straitjacket that limits you completely. MFR recognises the individuality of each person who comes for treatment, and responds to your symptoms, your body, and you. MFR never forces or leads, it works with the body, utilising the inherent healing wisdom within us all. The body is designed to work; given a little help (which we all need at times) it is pretty good at returning to it’s own optimum level of function, increasing quality of life, reducing symptoms and relieving long held stress, tension and negative patterns, both physically and emotionally. Claire passionately believes that healing is an art, and art is healing. To help others heal, we must be creative in our approach, open to inspiration and intuition, and willing to be present with whatever shows up, whether we judge it to be pretty or not. Some art is made to be challenging and to push us to our limits. Each of us is a unique expression of the artistry of the Universe, and should be treated with the reverence such exquisiteness requires.
