What my clients are saying

  • I wanted to let you know just how good Studio 7 is. I suffered a bad snowboard accident in December and have been seeing Lori since January with severe whiplash, post concussion syndrome, and cerebral damage. I was recommended to start with [cranio]sacral therapy which I did as I was unable to move my neck at all, this helped release the spinal connections to the neck and the process had begun. During this time we have worked slowly on all connected tissues, ligaments, movement etc. 4 months later I’m almost completely healed and without the professional help provided by Lori, I doubt I’d be able to have as much movement as I currently have. My recent treatment was more of a self care relaxing massage that I would score a strong 10/10. I’m very very grateful for the support and kindness I’ve received, Lori is in tune with the mind body, and has a very strong understanding of how and where a person needs help just by being in touch with the sensory system of the client. Thank you so much Lori, look forwards to seeing you soon.

    Brett - May 2023
  • I had a neck/shoulder muscle which was extremely tight for around 6 weeks. It got to a point where I
    couldn’t move my head properly, twist my body or do most movements without being in a lot of
    pain. It impacted my day to day work and life. I spoke to Lori about it and considering I have a
    medical condition on my right shoulder and was in agony with me left shoulder she was able to book
    me in. I’ve known Lori for a long time now but she never ceases to amaze me. After a 1 hour massage I felt a lot better. The feeling of the muscle loosening was amazing and 2 days after the massage the muscle had relaxed and I could move freely again. I can highly recommend Lori to anyone because her knowledge and her services are first class.

    Rene - February 2021
  • Lori was brilliant at every stage. I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable at all times. I have some medical issues that she talked through fully and the end result was days of pain-free movement. I would highly recommend Lori to all.

    Andy - September 2020
  • I would like to personally thank Lori of Studio 7 for helping me to alleviate the symptoms of a chronic health condition that has been afflicting me for some years. Lori was very attentive during her initial consultation. She suggested that the best route would be to undertake Craniosacral therapy. I do not understand how this works, it is magic! I now feel much calmer and the symptoms are much less pronounced than they used to be. I can’t recommend Lori highly enough.

    Andrew - March 2020
  • When I booked an Indian Head Massages for myself and a friend with Lori, I didn’t really know what to expect but was looking forward to a relaxing session. We were warmly greeted and welcomed into Lori’s home. I immediately felt a sense of calm. The massage gently relieved the tension in my head and neck. I felt myself relaxing. I suffer a lot from headaches and the sense of wellbeing and release of tension was very welcome. I highly recommend Lori and will be back to visit again sometime soon.

    Jenny - February 2020
  • I cannot thank you enough! After years of seeing an assortment of chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists, you were the first person to trace the source of my problems to an old whiplash injury that you literally felt out through your fingers. I have had numerous massages in the past but you take massage to the next level! You were kind and careful to ensure I was comfortable at all times. I love that it isn’t awkward to chat as we go and I feel refreshed in body and spirit after a session with you. I am looking forward to booking my next!

    Tamzin - January 2020
  • I was hugely sceptical about massage having had two in my life because, whilst they were pleasant, they left no lasting effect other than lightning my wallet and me thinking ” what was the point of that?”. Then I crossed paths with Lori who told me that, when training, she had sought out a deeper, longer lasting effect and found it in Raynor Massage. Lori carefully asked me how strong I would like it and off we went. Lori may look petite and ladylike, BOY is she effective though, like a human foam roller. I went in like Quasimodo and came out like Elastigirl and crucially I had no idea I was so tense, that my muscles were so inhibited in their movement, I thought I was fine. The joy and astonishment when I got home at how every movement to reach to pick something up or bend, twist or turn now felt supple, fluid and graceful. It was like my body went to Lori experiencing life in black and white and came out in Technicolour. A wonderful experience which I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you so much Lori, you are now part of my monthly self-care routine.

    Claire - October 2019
  • I booked the massage due to injuring my back whilst playing golf, after the massage my back felt like new and I felt no further pain and it also improved my next round. Lori was amazing and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone that suffers pain or discomfort whilst performing any activity.

    Jake - July 2019
  • I regularly have Raynor deep tissue massage done by Lori and would say she gives the best massages that I have experienced. I often have knots in my shoulders and back when I turn up for my appointments and Lori does a great job of finding these and working them out, whilst still managing to give attention to the rest of my body. I always come out of a session feeling completely relaxed. I highly recommend Raynor deep tissue massage with Lori. Thank you, I will be back for more!

    Debbie - June 2019
  • As life in general and running long distances in particular takes a lot out of the body it is important to ensure that the body recovers properly. A deep tissue massage with Lori is the perfect way to prepare for and to recover from running and promote overall well-being. Lori takes great care to ensure that the massage meets your needs and she has always provided me with an excellent service. I would not hesitate in recommending Lori of Studio 7 to others.

    Peter - March 2019
  • I promised myself when my very busy period was over, after Chinese New Year, I would treat myself to Craniosacral Therapy to give myself back some energy, make sure I was balanced and to make sure I took time for some deep relaxation. This was certainly achieved with Lori – she really knows her stuff and understands how we work and how we need to be in tune with the elements of the universe that work on the same principles. I had the best night’s sleep after this therapy and continue to sleep more deeply. I actually think I am now addicted and am already thinking about scheduling in my next appointment. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lori for this therapy.

    Abby - February 2019
  • I sent my husband to Lori so that she could look at and massage his back. It was extremely painful and felt like a trapped nerve or something similar. He is notorious for never doing anything about this kind of pain but it was obviously getting worse so Lori stepped into the fray. He came back from his appointment saying that it felt better even though it was still a bit painful but two days later he admitted he was pain free and feeling great. I can completely recommend Lori – my husband is a difficult patient and she looked after him really well and fixed whatever was wrong with his back!

    Carolyn - June 2018
  • I couldn’t recommend Lori more. Not only do I trust the Raynor technique fully, I also trust in Lori. She is personable, warm and above all professional. She is incredible and I leave feeling truly relaxed and “worked on”. I’ve even been known to say “I feel like I’m walking on a cloud” after my 2 hour sessions with her. I can’t thank you enough Lori. If you are contemplating it, just go and see what I’ve been talking about!

    Emily - May 2018
  • This letter is to thank you for an excellent massage session just before Christmas. Firstly, I was very grateful you made such an effort to accomodate me on very short notice, during one of the busiest times for all of us. Despite this, the session never felt rushed, it was as relaxing as I remember it from my first treatment in 2017. Pain had spread up my back, so not only did my lower back hurt, but everything else as well, right up to my shoulders. I could hardly sit and stand. Again, I was impressed by the marked improvement by the time the session ended, I felt relaxed, refreshed and invigorated. Not only did the massage release a lot of tension in the body, it allowed me to relax and refocus my mind. Thank you!

    Astrid - January 2018
  • I visited Lori today for my regular deep tissue massage, I arrived stressed and shocked about an incident that happened on my way, and to be honest I was a little depressed. After my massage and some friendly chat, it was as if my cares had floated away with my tense torso. I can highly recommend Lori’s healing hands, she allows plenty of time, you are never rushed and she really knows how to iron out those crunchy, knotted muscles. Thank you Lori

    Karen - December 2017
  • I had a Raynor deep tissue massage from Lori recently and can I just say “WOW”. I went in feeling like a slab of grumpy concrete, my neck and shoulders had been giving me trouble for about a week and I kept getting tension headaches. During the session Lori made sure I was comfortable and warm enough. She massaged me from toe to head and she even found tension in my jaw and massaged that out too. Lori is just incredible, she is thorough and pays great attention to detail. I’ve been to many places, experienced several types of massage and I’d pick Lori over them any day. I am a client for life! When I came out I felt like I was floating and since then I’ve been in a fantastic mood. I feel that Lori has reconnected my mind, body and spirit. My next session is already booked! Thank you so much!

    Dayna - September 2017
  • I’m not really sure what made me book a session for Craniosacral Therapy with Lori at Studio 7, but I’m very glad I did. I hadn’t heard of it before but I was feeling stressed and in need of someone to help put me back together. As a single Mum of two, with a busy business to run I was feeling like I had run out of energy and didn’t feel myself. Lori was amazing and very talented. She was able to put me at ease very quickly. I’m not sure how the therapy works but her touch identified areas of my body that seemed to be fizzing and unsettled and during the session I could feel them calming down until I felt completely rested, which I haven’t felt in a very long time. I have my next session booked and can’t wait. It feels like a treat for my body and mind. Heaven!

    Sandra - August 2017
  • I would just like to thank Lori at Studio 7 for the pregnancy massage she gave me. I was heavily pregnant and really needed some pampering. From the moment I arrived Lori made me feel completely at ease and the massage was the best I have ever had. I found the whole experience so relaxing and really helped to ease a lot of tension. I would recommend the services of Studio 7 Therapies to anyone.

    Leanne - July 2017
  • The service you provide is second to none. You’re polite, friendly, relaxed but professional manner made the whole experience far more enjoyable and relaxing than I was expecting, having never been for a massage and not knowing what to expect. You really know your stuff and my sore shoulder is already feeling the benefits. Thanks Lori, looking forward to the next one.

    Matt - June 2017
  • Lori was very warm and welcoming and put me at ease straight away. She was professional and knowledgeable throughout the massage. The massage was excellent and left me feeling great for the rest of the week!

    Georgina - May 2017
  • This is to thank you for an excellent massage. For a long time I have been struggling with a bad back. Lately I also found it difficult to relax and step back from the stressful day to day business. When I came to see you I was tense and thought I couldn’t spare the time to indulge in this luxury. When the session ended I felt relaxed, refreshed and invigorated. Not only did the massage release a lot of tension in the body, it allowed me to relax and refocus my mind. Based on this experience I would recommend Studio 7 to anyone who needs a bit of time to themselves to relax and refocus.

    Astrid - April 2017
  • This is an opportunity to say thank you for the work [massage] you did recently on getting my arm back up and running. Having sustained a muscle injury you did your best to help me recover despite being super busy. I was impressed how you proceeded cautiously in order to make sure no further damage was caused to my arm. My arm is now much better and I have full mobility once again. Many thanks!

    Andrei - January 2017
  • I began seeing Lori since she started her business and I always compare her to a miracle worker with a magic touch! I suffer from headaches and I can say hand on my heart since seeing Lori I have been headache free. Lori spends the time talking with me before any treatments – asking about events in my life and how I am feeling and is very experienced and knowledgeable in her work and suggestions with what areas of my body to treat. Her home is so friendly and welcoming, that it makes for perfect relaxation. I recommend Lori to all my family and friends and couldn’t be without her – I go to see Lori feeling like a bundle of knots and kinks and when I come out I feel a million dollars, I really cannot recommend her enough!

    Jess - November 2016
  • I have had the pleasure of working with Lori for the past 12 months since relocating my business to Walton-on-Thames. As an independent personal trainer the deep tissue massage from Lori is an essential part of my personal wellbeing. I run many miles per week with my clients as well as carrying lots of heavy equipment in and out of client’s homes. This inevitably takes it toll on my body and without Lori I would undoubtedly have picked up an injury before now. Lori has great attention for detail and is able to quickly highlight the areas where my body is holding the most tension. The sessions are always relaxing and I always leave feeling not just better in my body but less stressed and tense. Lori has a great skill of finding all those tight little knots (of which I seem to have many) and releasing the tension in a way that distracts you from what she is doing. I cannot thank Lori enough for the help she has given me over the last twelve months and the first class service she has given my customers. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

    Andy - August 2016
  • I have been using Lori’s massage services for about 18 months now which allows my body to relax and heal in a way that is both manageable and affordable. My need is to keep my body in good shape so that I can work on a daily basis, due to the physicality of my work this is not always the case. Her passion for her business to succeed is clear as she is always professional and a pleasure to deal with. I like dealing with Lori as she is open, honest and clear about what she does and how she can help. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lori to friends and colleagues as I think so many of us could benefit from the services she provides.

    Chris - July 2016
  • Firstly I met Lori while pregnant, she came to our house & instantly I thought what a lovely person she was. She gave me the most amazing back massage I’ve ever had (especially then when I was carrying an 8lb baby in my tummy) since then me & my hubby Lloyd see Lori every two weeks for a massage. Each & every time she knows exactly where to massage, how much pressure to use & most importantly how to get rid of those horrible knots we all seem to get from doing everyday things. She is genuinely I think, one of the nicest people I have ever met, so kind & caring & always comes with a smile on her face, ready to work on those tight & awkward muscles (which she can always get too). I’ve had a few massages from other people in the past but since seeing Lori, I’ll never use anyone else again, she truly has magic hands! I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her to anyone of any age looking to actually get something out of a massage instead of laying on a bed for an hour being tickled or stroked.

    Ashley - June 2016
  • I felt it was time to thank you properly for your amazing CST [Craniosacral Therapy] work. I must admit I was baffled to begin with and in the first few sessions I wondered if anything was really happening. But then I had a problem with my left hip which left me walking with difficulty , not to mention in quite a lot of pain. The left hip was an area you had sensed was a problem before even I knew myself. As you know, I had other therapies for this condition as well, including osteopathy, but the CST made a real difference to my pain level and wellbeing during my recovery, and some of the sensations were strange as well as beneficial. There is no doubt in my mind that your CST treatments had a real effect on my condition. I have no idea how it works but it really does, and I thank you for your skill and effort in getting me, quite literally, back on my feet again.

    Glyn - May 2016
  • Thank you for your amazing massages. Me and my wife have been using Lori for about two years now from de-stressing massages to pregnancy massages for my wife. We see Lori every two weeks and its one of the great things we look forward to. Her friendly, professional approach and knowledge of what she does is unbelievable. We always recommend to family and friends.

    Lloyd - March 2016
  • I would like to thank Lori on behalf of my partner Hilary and I for your services over the past year. Hilary continues to thoroughly enjoy seeing you once a month for Craniosacral Therapy whilst aiding you with feedback with your studies. We would highly recommend you to our family, friends and acquaintances. Until next time.

    Steve - March 2016
  • I saw Lori as an alternative treatment for migraines, having been to chiropractors and acupuncture in the past, they all worked as long as they were maintained. Having recently moved back to our lovely part of the world, when I heard Lori speaking about the benefits of Raynor deep tissue massage and was intrigued as to whether it would be useful for me. I have been migraine free since I began seeing Lori. Lori is competent and extremely thorough when getting my muscles to where they should be, however more so than that she is able to work whilst answering all my questions on what she is doing and why my muscles are reacting the way they are to treatment! For me there is a medical benefit, but personally my shoulder flexibility has improved, I work at a computer all day and they don’t move much. It is also an incredibly ‘treat’ to have Lori leave me feeling slightly boneless, relaxed body and soul.

    Jessica - November 2015
  • I have had the pleasure of engaging Lori’s massage services and found her to be an excellent practitioner and I benefited greatly from her massage therapy. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about their general health and wellbeing.

    Peter - November 2015
  • I wanted to thank you for the deep tissue massage you gave me. As my job is physical and I regularly put my body through it’s paces in various sport and activities, I have suffered for a long time with very stiff shoulders which in turn leads to a lack of movement and a sensation of having a trapped nerve beneath my shoulder blades. After one visit I can already feel a marked improvement. The experience was relaxed from start to finish. The massage itself was agonising in all the right ways and the next day when I got up I felt like my shoulders had dropped at least 2 inches as I was no longer tensing them up. Thank you again Lori. I will definitely be back, in fact I’ve already booked in my next session!

    Jane - September 2015
  • I would like to thank you [Lori] for the several [practice] sessions of craniosacral therapy I have had so far. Before each session I am normally stressed and frenetic from work. After each session I feel relaxed and positive with a renewed sense of energy. Its great! You have a wonderful way of making me feel relaxed from the start of the treatment and throughout. I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to de-stress and feel whole again!

    Adam - August 2015
  • I run and workout regularly combined with a job that involves lots of sitting at my computer so I had plenty of knots for Lori to work on. I absolutely loved the treatment. Lori is excellent at putting her clients at ease and I felt entirely comfortable very quickly. In fact I didn’t want the treatment to end. I left Lori’s house feeling totally relaxed and floating on air, a feeling which stayed with me for several days. Recently I have been under a lot of stress and Lori is my “go to” therapist to massage away the tension and restore a feeling of wellbeing. I cannot recommend Lori highly enough.

    Julie - June 2015
  • I have been really impressed with the results gained from Saturday’s massage, thank you so much. I was initially a little achy, especially under my shoulder blades on both sides but that eased and yesterday I was feeling the best that I have in a long while…pain free and fluid movements, so I am very grateful.

    Carol - May 2015
  • I would like to thank Lori at Studio 7 Therapies for my treatment last week. Lori treated my back to a deep tissue massage and the results were fantastic, I feel more flexible than I have in ages. She didn’t just focus on one area but worked on other areas of my back that may have been related. I can’t recommend Lori highly enough for her treatments.

    Owen - April 2015
  • I like dealing with Lori as she is open, honest and clear about what she does and how she can help you. Lori runs a heath & well being business that covers a wide variety of needs for everyday people. My need is to keep my body in good shape so that I can work on a daily basis, due to the physicality of my work this is not always the case. I have been using Lori’s massage services for several months now which allows my body to relax and heal in a way that is both manageable and affordable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lori as I think so many of us could benefit from the services that she provides. Carry on the good work!
