"Thank you so much to Clara, whom I have  been seeing for Therapeutic Massage, Myofascial Release and Reflexology.  I was diagnosed with a severe C7 radiculopathy (compressed nerve in the neck) in March, which causes debilitating pain and loss of neck movement plus pain, weakness and numbness in my left arm right down to my fingers.  Since having these therapies from Clara I have noticed a significant improvement in symptoms and my pain levels are reducing. I am also sleeping better.

The sessions with Clara are so therapeutic and by far have been more beneficial than the physiotherapy I have received and more pain relieving than my medication. I can't thank Clara enough for the help she has given me, and I always look forward to my next session."  Christine, Hove


"I have found Clara Zapata to be a professional, caring provider of treatment, in my case deep muscle massage. I have used her service at The Tree of Life Centre at least fortnightly for over a year. She always takes care to check with me first any changes in my condition, proposing and agreeing with me what might be needed, and carries out the massage in a reassuringly calm and sensitive way so that I feel completely safe. I would recommend her very highly." Crispin Ellison


"Having been in therapy for several years I recognised the need to balance my system and work with the body to release old trauma.  Clara’s ability to create a warm, welcoming environment immediately put me at ease. Her sensitivity to my own process and the nature of Cranio-Sacral work itself, has been an experience both gently nurturing and profound. The invitation to let go of mind stuff during the treatment and instead let the body process under Clara’s intuitive and skilled presence offered such deep relaxation I had not experienced before. Subsequently over the past weeks and months since working with Clara I feel on a subtle level that my system has calmed, allowing me to be more present and available to myself and the world around me." James Whiteway


"Having read an article explaining how craniosacral therapy could cure tinnitus, I went to The Tree of Life to find out if this therapy was practised there. Amazingly, that day, at the moment I went in to inquire, Clara Zapata was sat in the reception. At first, I even thought she was a patient. But instead, she happened to be the craniosacral practitioner I was looking for.

I couldn’t quite understand what this therapy was all about. I was imagining mechanical processes over my head to release pressure. I was miles away from thinking the life changing effects Clara and this therapy would bring. I now understand I was ready for the next step on my journey of personal development and ready to meet the helping hands I needed, Clara’s.

Clara is very warm, understanding and intuitive. She is amazing at listening to you and what your body has to say. Through this process, mountains have moved deep inside me.  I have reintegrated my body and now feel grounded, safe and a lot stronger in a peaceful way. No need to constantly fight anymore. I can relax. How extraordinary is that!

The best way I could explain it is that Clara creates the safe space where you can connect with your inner-self, your true self. I’ve read and heard about it many times but I truly experienced it thanks to Clara. How incredibly moving and beautiful it was! I now know the way to myself and can go anytime.

I will forever be grateful to you Clara. Thank You." A.V.T
