I needed to get my health sorted out and decided to signed up for yoga for the ageing with Kim. I love that the class is small with five or six of us. Kim gives us individual attention and is very supportive and caring.
In February this year I also signed up for a Detox Program, I choose to do the program for seven days and it was refreshing to do a program where it is a whole package with consultations, on going support and a different massage treatment every day and you go home with lunch after your treatment.
I still go to yoga every week and I have Kizzali and Kati Basti every month to help with my osteoporosis. A few weeks ago I got out of the passenger seat of a car and put my foot on the slope of a gutter I slipped and landed on the ground and bounced up again to the surprise of my friend who feared that I would have had some broken bones. I believe that yoga, the remedial massages and the fact that I lost 4kg when I did the detox have gone a long way to get my health not just back on track but better!
I highly recommend Kim and Scott to anyone who would like to improve their health, use less or no medication and lead a healthy life. Both Kim and Scott are very caring and are genuine in their interest in your wellbeing.
