Menopause Misunderstood

A package dedicated to supporting women towards and through a life stage which is hugely misunderstood, quashing the perception that this life stage has to be debilitating.



Knowledge is power when it comes to approaching and going through your peri- to post-menopause years. Menopause is often perceived as a dreaded event of womanhood, but this holisitic programme using exercise, food, soft tissue therapy, lifestyle changes, and stress management will prepare you for and support you through a more natural transition.


MENOPAUSE MISUNDERSTOOD is a specific combination of services to suit women approaching and navigating through the peri-to post-menopause life stage. Peri-menopause is the 6-10 year transition to menopause and can start from age 35-40. Menopause itself is defined as 1 year after your last period and the average age in the UK is 51. Menopause has got a bad reputation over the years - a period to dread, of horrible physical symptoms that feels like constant PMS, discomfort, mood changes, weight gain, pelvic floor issues and reduced bone density. Now is the time to take control and thrive through these years.


Following completion of the relevant health screening form, you can book on the services which form the Positive Menopause Package.


Below is a list of the services included within the POSITIVE MENOPAUSE Package including some optional services which you may like to consider to include within your positive menopause journey.


Positive Menopause

If you are purchasing this programme for the first time, please purchase the one-off 'Menopause Misunderstood' webinar alongside the programme (details below).

Meno-Fit Session

This is 121 bespoke exercise and movement session based around your personal needs. It's more individualised than a group exercise class in that we can get really specific with the type of exercise we include in this 121 session whether it's a session based on improving strength or cardiovascular fitness or something more restorative like Pilates or Yoga. As a Sports Therapist and specialist in Women's Wellness, together we can work to treat any injuries or dysfunctions, and offset current or future health concerns associated with the hormonal shifts during menopause including bone, heart, pelvic floor and mental health. Available ONLINE if necessary.

Advanced Soft Tissue Therapy

Utilising advanced techniques like Soft Tissue Release (STR), Muscle Energy Techniques (METs), Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Therapy, these treatments help gently to loosen restricted connected tissue and fascia, encourage lengthening of overactive muscles, carefully untangle congested muscle fibres, and smoothly release points of tenderness in muscles and fascia caused by repetitive movements, poor postural alignment, tissue trauma/damage, overload as well as emotional stress. 

Simply Food

A unique and personalised session to discuss and set nutritional goals to help you move forward with your health and wellbeing using simple, myth-busting strategies (no calorie/macro counting in sight!) to boost your metabolism and improve how your body uses the food you eat. With your goal of improving your hormonal health and offsetting typical weight gain associated with hormonal changes, this session will open your eyes to a more simple approach to eating. This session can take place in person or online.

Group Exercise Class (1 month)

As each woman's peri- to post-menopause journey is individual from woman to woman, following your Meno-Fit or Soft Tissue Therapy session, I will recommend a course of classes for you to do based on your needs and goals. You can check out my range of classes here.
