I was so pleased you are here today. I only trust you to get rid of the knot and pain in my back.
Nice to meet you on Friday and thank you for your time. Just to let you know that since my visit I have experienced much less pain in general, still some specfic pain but generally much less. I also noticed that my meditation is much deeper and I enjoyed it right through to my legs, and also saw purple sky and clouds, as when I was having reiki.
I just wanted to say thank you so very much for today’s massage. I feel so different now that my shoulders are so stretched out.
Thank you for visiting our site on Wednesday, I thoroughly enjoyed the taster session and have found that yesterday and today I have been in far less pain than I have been in for a number of years. I have suffered lower back pains for so many years that I never expected such a difference could be achieved in such a short time. It was totally unexpected and I can only say how much I am looking forward to having another session.
With many thanks
Thanks for my massage today! As promised, here is a testimonial for your website:
I wake up feeling ‘crumpled up’ and I have really bad posture, which causes me pain. After a session with Sarah Jayne, my joints feel more balanced and my posture is better aligned. The pain has gone and I feel great!

What makes me so passionate?
I've always been one of those people who enjoys helping others. It is the one thing that truly satisfies me.
From a young age I enjoyed seeing other people smiling or feeling good because of something I'd done to help. I volunteered extensively with The British Red Cross Society as a cadet. This led me to an early career working in mental health and disability care. It was during this time I realised that health and social care systems were often failing to cater for these people in a way they really wanted - and that's where it really all began for me.
I worked hard to understand what these people wanted. The human touch took on a
profound new meaning for me, almost every societal group that is marginalised for
whatever reason receives limited human touch or contact beyond what is absolutely
necessary, often this even means reduced eye contact and eventually a complete lack of contact , resulting in loss of understanding of personal needs. Helping someone less able to dress themselves is needed by many due to age, ability or infirmity.
The human touch is far greater than this - in exploring how we treat our young babies, with infinite love, gentleness and physical contact, hugs, caresses, hand holding and simply sitting close enough to touch I realised this needed to be bought into the disabilty care environment.
I studied massage therapy to be able to give the people I worked with the one thing they all seemed to lack; a simple, soothing human touch. This therapy bolstered my daily activities which included, personal care and simply spending time in their company and enjoying being together.
Alongside this I started to look at other groups of people who were being marginalised, such as the homeless and those in safe houses. I saw the same need for human touch - a form of acceptance in almost every arena. After 15 years in the care sector I moved on to help people in other ways but always with the prime aim of making their world a little better for them.
In looking for something to improve my fitness levels I found myself studying Tai Chi Chuan. It's hard to believe I have studied Tai Chi Chuan for 30+ years now! I am still a student even though I have now taught Tai Chi since 2010. I see so many areas in every day life that Tai Chi could enhance and as a result have developed a style of teaching that encompasses all the ancient spirituality and technique with modern day practice and references to make it applicable to every day life. Tai Chi is called "Meditation on the move" by some, I believe the mindfulness aspect of Tai Chi has had a profound effect on me. When I embarked on teaching Tai Chi I saw many parallels with Reiki energy (after all they both translate similarly as variations of "Ultimate Force/Universal Energy") and started to work using both together.
Every profession I've ever been in has aimed at making peoples lives a little better. That and looking after my own health and development converged with me finding Reiki. After seeing the effect Reiki had on my young son, my first impulse was to learn to be able to pass this healing myself. Almost 10 years later I am now an Usui, Karuna, Lightarian and Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher, I am still amazed on a daily basis how many benefits people feel from receiving Reiki.
Working with both Reiki energy and Tai Chi energy, I clearly saw links between how Reiki works and the health benefits of Tai Chi. I run workshops enabling others to explore the energy links themselves and develop symbiotic practice of Reiki and Tai Chi - it's all about vibration after all!
In wanting to pass on this passion I have for energy work and helping peoples lives to be a little better, HOST was born. For me the real drive is helping people to manage their own health, by spotting their own symptoms, identifying stress and looking at positive ways of reducing it's effect. This could be acheived through Tai Chi exercises specifically aimed at providing opportunity to relax, breath and move as a form of release, simple meditation or by choosing one of the treatments on offer - either privately or through work based treatments. I am astounded at the number of people I see for therapies that are completely unaware of their own tensions, held physically or mentally. Those who are unaware are often almost incapable of relaxing or being able to switch off. Providing opportunities for people to feel less stressed and ultimately to be able to relax in both body and mind is what my work is all about.
In order to help grow my business I have expanded on my skills base to offer other holistic treatments and constantly look to refine and seek new skills and treatments, all aimed at creating a unique package of classes, workshops and treatments to aid stress management, anxiety reduction and relaxation.
Working with energy has enhanced my life, and using it to help others is immensely satisfying. I also work with energy in art and craft projects - specifically in making unique drum bags for reiki drummers and other Reiki infused textiles, please go to the Reiki Textiles page for information.
