Entering Charlene’s room for a treatment is the kindest act you can imagine for yourself.  Warm, kind, professional - no matter how stressed I present, I leave Charlene’s care completely relaxed and rejuvenated.  Currently dealing with a stressful, busy life and entering perimenopause, I credit Charlene with really genuinely helping me to better cope with life’s difficulties and maintain strong mental health and balance.  Regular reflexology and bio-energy sessions have led to a wonderful sense of balance and wellbeing, better sleep and resulting energy.  An added, unexpected benefit is how well I feel physically – I was receiving dry needling physiotherapy treatment for shoulder pain prior to starting with Charlene and find that I no longer need this.  Charlene is a very special find for me, I wholeheartedly recommend this lovely person who treats so intuitively and professionally.

I have gone to Charlene for the last few years and find her Reflexology treatment amazing. It is one hour of DE-stress and relaxation. It is a very personal treatment so the benefits are amazing. Charlene is very kind, knowledgeable and I would highly recommend. I have also received some Bio Energy treatments and couldn’t believe how effective it was also.

I would highly recommend Charlene. She is both professional and passionate. Charlene is a caring and an empathetic practitioner. I have received both Reflexology and Bio Energy Healing Therapy for my various aliments and I feel this had been of great benefit to my overall well-being.

I had two bioenergy sessions with Charlene last summer. I was very stressed and dealing with some health issues at the time. Charlene explained what the session would entail and how I might feel, which made me feel more prepared for the session. I honestly felt the benefits as soon as I finished, as if I was floating on air, and I noticed a significant release from my stress in the following days. I did a second session a week later and felt even better and generally lighter and in better form. I would thoroughly recommend a session with Charlene.

Charlene is just absolutely amazing, couldn’t recommend her highly enough, I’ve had Reflexology and Bio Energy with many practitioners and in different countries but Charlene is by far the best! She instantly puts you at ease and her treatments have helped me so much!

It’s a total 5 star ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ from me!

After my miscarriage I was exhausted physically and emotionally. I was having real difficulty sleeping at night and was very stressed.

I booked a Reflexology session with Charlene and it was best thing I could have done. I was so relaxed that I fell asleep during our first session and I also started sleeping at night.

I had a few sessions and felt like I was getting back to my normal self. I was sleeping and definitely more relaxed. It took time for my body and mind to start readjust, to not being pregnant again, and Charlene’s Reflexology really helped.

So only a few months after my miscarriage I found out I was pregnant again. I had a few sessions with Charlene throughout my pregnancy as I was feeling a bit stressed after what happened when I was previously pregnant. I believe they have helped me greatly.

Also had follow up sessions in last few weeks as I have been suffering from very swollen ankles, and the sessions have really helped. Once I have my baby I intend on going back for a few more sessions.

I would 100% recommend Charlene, she is very professional, kind, warm and welcoming. She provides a very relaxing setting for treatments.

I highly recommend Charlene! I attended Charlene as I was looking for a holistic approach to getting my menstrual cycle back on track. After the birth of my daughter and breastfeeding for 8 months there was still no sign of Mother nature to return. I was feeling sluggish and just not fully myself, I knew my hormones were somewhat out of sync. I had never tried reflexology or bioenergy before so I was pretty skeptical. I could not be more impressed with how practical and down to earth Charlene was. She explained both treatment options and I decided to give reflexology a go. Not only was the actual reflexology session amazing but the advice Charlene offered regarding vitamins and minerals made great sense. I floated out of her gorgeous treatment room and attended for the next 5 weeks in a row. I looked forward to the sessions so much, I was very busy at work and very busy at home and found these sessions were helping to keep me relaxed and enjoying a special time in my life. On top of that I was so delighted within a month to have my cycle back! I am now 7 months pregnant with baby number 2 and I really believe that the sessions with Charlene helped this.

"Thank you Charlene for making me feel wonderfully relaxed in the last few months of my pregnancy. I found the Reflexology and Bio Energy extremely relaxing and calming. It has helped to release tension in my body especially my back. You are such a kind and gentle person it was lovely to meet you every week. The time was well spent as I believe it has boosted my overall well being in preparation for the birth ahead. Best wishes to you always."

"My initial reason for visiting SOLSTICE R&R was for massage to relieve tension in my neck and shoulders. I also had a history of lower back problems. Charlene introduced me to Bio Energy Healing and I haven't looked back since then. I'm feeling much better in myself, my back problems have virtually disappeared and my neck and shoulders are so much more relaxed. I visit SOLSTICE R&R regularly for 'time out' and once you walk into that room you can feel the daily tension drop straightaway. Charlene is a warm welcoming person who listens to your needs and advises on the best course of action.

I have referred family and friends to her over the past 18 months and I can't recommend her highly enough."

My husband bought me a voucher for Reflexology. I went along and found the whole thing just so relaxing,not realising the benefit that was to follow. I was having a terrible time with the menopause, hot flushes, sleepless nights and anxious. I was  pleasantly surprised after 1 week I was sleeping at night and the hot flushes went away. Charlene is a lovely person and very professional and takes a special interest and takes notes of your progress.

“I cannot recommend Charlene in SOLSTICE enough. I was introduced to reflexology for the first time by Charlene and was amazed at how great I felt afterwards. When I was diagnosed with bulging discs in my neck, I had both reflexology and bio-energy treatments and it excelled my recovery immensely.”

"Charlene offers amazing therapy treatments at very good prices. My problem areas are back, neck and shoulders: I sometimes carry a lot of tension in these areas and it requires a deeper massage to really work at releasing the knots. In the past with other therapists I have visited, they would work on these areas but the treatment was not enjoyable for me. In fact, it was often quite painful, therefore I couldn't relax and this only added more tension! But Charlene's technique is different... She listens to the client, is able to actively work on problem areas, working out muscle tensions, but without treating the area too harshly and without creating that level of discomfort. This quality is rare and something I haven't found in many other massage therapists. Charlene really has a unique skill in this regard. At the end of a treatment with Charlene, I always feel like my muscles have gotten the relief they needed – while I am able to relax and enjoy the treatment. And with a great range of therapies on offer – and the prices are affordable – there is always another treatment I want to try!"

"I visited Charlene when I was feeling tired, sluggish and anxious about my slow progress, energy wise, after having had surgery and Brachytherapy four months previous. Charlene, after a thorough interview, suggested a number Reflexology sessions followed by Bio Energy sessions. I omitted to disclose what type of surgery I had   At the time but Charlene clearly identified the area during my first reflexology session.

I have to say that these sessions certainly assisted immensely in my energy returning and my continued positive progress. Charlene's professional , non-intrusive verbal assessment and her obvious therapeutic skills when delivering the sessions have had a very positive impact on my progress and I have now returned back to work, knowing that I can benefit from such wonderful interventions and treatments as and when I require by making an appointment with SOLSTICE R&R."

"I had Reflexology and Bio-Energy with Charlene in Solstice R&R and it was amazing. Charlene put me at ease straight away explaining what each involved. With the Reflexology I had a reading of the feet and it was so accurate I was delighted. After 3 sessions of Bio-Energy I felt like a new woman. Charlene worked on areas that needed the most attention and she really has a healing touch. Have recommended Charlene in Solstice R&R to everyone I know as it definitely was a positive experience for me."

"I received 4 treatments of Reflexology with Charlene over a few weeks. I always get aches and pains in my feet and suffer with hard dry callous skin on both feet which often burns and I find it hard to sleep at night due to this. I thoroughly enjoyed the treatments. She made me feel at ease and was very knowledgeable and she answered lots of questions that I had which was great. I felt a huge difference overall in my body and feet. The burning sensation in my feet was gone so I was sleeping great and also the improvement with the skin on my feet was amazing. I felt like I had a new pair of feet after the treatments. I look forward to receiving more treatments from Charlene in the future."

"I received an Indian Head Massage from Charlene to help with tension and stress I was feeling. I never had this treatment before and I really enjoyed it. I found it very stimulating and could feel the tension and stress releasing. Charlene was very professional and she showed me some breathing techniques that I could do to help me with my stress which I continue to do most days which I find very helpful."

"I had some sessions of Bio Energy Healing with Charlene. She treated me for arthritis in my right shoulder and elbow which I had a lot of pain and stiffness, tension in my neck and also to boost my energy overall. After the 3 sessions were completed I felt some relief and about 1 week later I came for another session and after this treatment I couldn’t believe the difference. I had no pain or stiffness and I was full of energy. I was delighted and surprised with my results and would come for more treatments again."

"I attended 3 Bio-Energy healing sessions with Charlene Porter. She made me feel relaxed from the outset. I have ovarian cysts which were causing me extreme discomfort and my whole energy systems were out of sync as a result. I was persistently tired, lethargic and uncomfortable. After the sessions, my body felt completely different. With the healing and some advice from Charlene, I no longer suffer discomfort, and I am full of energy and vibrancy. I am also delighted to report that the cysts have shrunk (checked through an ultra-sound)! I couldn’t recommend this therapy and this therapist highly enough. Thank you Charlene, I will be back soon!!!"

"I brought my daughter Mia when she was six weeks old to Charlene for three sessions of Bio energy Healing as she had bronchiolitis. Mia was agitated at first but soon relaxed as the treatment progressed. After the first session she improved slightly, the second session there was more of a noticeable improvement as she wasn’t coughing as much and she was able to breathe with more ease. After the third session Mia was a lot better, feeding better, her cough had improved immensely and she was sleeping better at night. I was very impressed with Charlene during these sessions knowing my daughter was in safe hands and she also showed true professionalism when preforming these treatments on Mia."

"Having being suffering from chronic snoring for quite some time, and have used many anti snoring Aids like snoring rings and nasal sprays all to no avail. At this point I came to Charlene for reflexology treatments to see if it could easy my snoring. The treatment began with a reading of the feet which I found very insightful and surprising. The treatment itself I found very relaxing and I was always kept informed as Charlene went through different areas of my feet. After my first treatment  my partner informed me that my snoring was greatly reduced and after my next 3 treatments my snoring was complete stopped and I would like to return every six to eight weeks for a top up to keep my snoring in check.

I found the whole experience very calming and insightful; Charlene was professional and kind and made me feel very at ease during the treatments. I would highly recommend  Charlene’s treatments for me it turned a treatment into an enjoyable experience."
