TESTIMONIALS FROM DIFFERENT CLIENT GROUPS...
One to One
Spectrum Living is described as “purveyors of extraordinarily good massage” and they are not wrong. The ‘No Hands' combination massage is, quite literally, phenomenal. On a recent trip abroad, I had the misfortune to be sleeping in a very uncomfortable bed which made my back feel very sore. I dreamt about having one of these massages – if I had been a rich celebrity, I would have had Amanda flown out for an hour!
There is only one downside. Once you’ve had massage with Amanda @ Spectrum Living, no other therapist or massage will ever compare.
Amanda’s back massages are amazing. Within a few minutes I felt inches taller. By the end I felt so relaxed. Amanda is a unique practitioner. She was also able to quickly identify some of my postural challenges which can be very painful, and recommend stretches which helped greatly.
Amanda has helped me emotionally by encouraging me to challenge some habitual thinking. This has resulted in a ‘shift’ of ideas and perspective on life. That ‘shift’ has had a positive knock-on-effect in other areas.
She has enabled me to express emotions that I might not do with others.
She has helped me to realise the root cause of some ailments that started a long time ago. She has enabled me to change habits regarding diet. I have been able to give up certain foods that were not helpful to my general state of health.
Spiritually, Amanda has provided me with insight into the relationship between the individual and the universe. She has encouraged me to consider the present moment, which in turn, provides peace and calm…
I booked six reflexology sessions and honestly didn’t really know what to expect although I had a tiny bit of ‘layman’s’ knowledge of reflexology. The very first session was within an hour of receiving my letter of redundancy which reduced me to tears, and I felt quite despondent. I have to say that I left my session feeling almost 100% better. Amanda’s calm approach and manner immediately helped me relax and I found the session very soothing. Her words of wisdom afterwards enabled me to see that this new period in my life was an opportunity to embrace change.
Amanda exudes a gentle expert confidence in what she does and without fail, I have been able to ‘enter the zone’ and relax totally in each session,after which I have felt more positive and energised mentally.
I will definitely be having more reflexology with Amanda/Spectrum and would recommend her to everyone.
SOME FURTHER COMMENTS…

Hi Miracle Worker… I have felt completely different since my treatment yesterday. No more fluttering and a very positive outlook. Many many thanks!

I also work with clients with Learning Disabilities…
Thank you so much for your friendly approach, intuition, skill and hard work. My client has severe learning difficulties, Charge syndrome and is registered deaf/blind. He also has a range of health problems, but your patience, time and skill base has helped us to better understand a person who would otherwise be unable to communicate the physical needs and conditions you have been able to locate.
You have made such a difference to his day to day life and helped us to approach medical and activity based issues with further sensitivity, better understanding and ingenuity.
Your calm and professional approach is instantly likeable and it’s wonderful to see your interaction with our client and how much he enjoys your visits. To see him genuinely relax and give himself to you so freely is a delight. Your depth of experience and knowledge is invaluable and so refreshingly holistic.
We all feel very fortunate that you were the Reflexologist who was commissioned to work at this house, and regularly tell others of the benefits and how fantastic the overall experience has been for our client and staff. Long may the good work continue, and THANKS again!

We are a small residential service, supporting adults with learning and physical disabilities.
Amanda has been providing Reflexology for 3 of my clients and has done for up to 12 years.
The Clients that Amanda supports have conditions and symptoms which include Bulbar Palsy, Epilepsy, Landau Kleffner Syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis, Prolapsed Mitral heart valve and a variety of social and anxiety problems.
Through Amanda's Reflexology, my team and I are able to grasp a far better understanding of our Clients’ inner needs. Often the results of her therapy can be seen immediately, it's quite amazing!
Amanda has always been flexible to the needs of the individual as well as to the needs of our service. She always brings a sense of cheer and positivity to our home.
I cannot recommend Amanda enough. What she does is incredible.
I would be very happy to make a personal testimonial should anyone want more information about the wonderful work that Amanda does.

Amanda visits us at Findon House, which is a supported living house for adults with Acquired Brain Injuries. The gentleman that has reflexology seems to benefit greatly from her visits and is always cheerful and relaxed afterwards.
I have always found Amanda to be very reliable, professional and generally a very cheerful and positive lady. She is very knowledgeable within her field and often passes on very good recommendations to both clients and staff.

Amanda provided massage for one of my service users for a year, and developed an extremely good understanding of the individual.
The client is wheelchair bound, and non-verbal, and through spending time with Amanda, became more flexible than she had been for some years.
Amanda was intuitive enough to recognise when the individual had decided that she no longer wanted to continue with the activity.

Abi House is a residential service for young adults with learning difficulties and autism.
We sourced Amanda’s services for 2 of our female customers, both of which are very different. One customer is non-verbal and has developed a bond with Amanda where she can engage in a positive 1;1 session and make the customer feel relaxed enough to enjoy and partake in reflexology.
The second customer looks forward to Amanda’s visit and enjoys their 1;1 sessions thoroughly. Amanda is able to promote relaxation and give the customer the confidence to talk openly with her.
Amanda’s visits are greatly received by both customers and staff, and Amanda has a good understanding of the customer’s needs, and is aware that situations may arise where sessions need to be moved or cancelled at short notice. Amanda is very flexible and can move her diary to suit our customer’s needs.
Care of Service Manager
Amanda receives a wonderful welcome from the clients she visits. They look forward to her coming and once at the home she gives 100% devotion to their needs. Amanda delivers an individual package to each of them to ensure maximum benefit. Amanda is compassionate, warm and has a sunny disposition. I believe the clients value her visits. She promotes relaxation and well being that stays with them once she has gone.
Amanda always writes a detailed report before leaving and feedback is given to the staff on duty. These have proved to be very beneficial.
I have never once had reason to doubt her professional attitude to her work and have every confidence in her capabilities, I would be more than happy to recommend Amanda.
It was most enjoyable and I shall definitely go back for more. Cheers, Carole
Very many thanks. Really enjoyed the back massage. Jon
Thank you so much for organising the pamper day last week – what a treat and, yes, can we have more please! Regards Susan
Amanda first carried out a one off corporate pampering day at my office for 11 members of staff, each of whom had half hour slots. When I sent the original invitation out to the staff in the office, I was fully booked in less than two days. We featured back massage, reflexology, Indian head massage and so on.
The days go well and some staff email me telling me what a great treat it was, how much they enjoyed the opportunity to de-stress and ask when it’s happening again.
Personally, I find the experience like an oasis of calm in an otherwise busy day. It was terrific to have a treatment on site and I feel energised when I get back to my desk.
We now enjoy Spectrum Living's visits once a month as our Health and Safety remit at work (under stress management).
