Mother’s Little Helpers
I am so blessed to have some amazing people supporting me during my pregnancy, as I really do believe that a mother’s mind-set affects baby.
Isabelle is the most genius guru for any mummy-to-be. She practices and preaches Dr Gowri Motha’s treatments, nutiritional advice and birthing plan. She started doing my pregnancy massage at around 3 months (the earliest they advise) and is now giving me an all-round programme for a fabulous pregnancy. Poor Isabelle didn’t start with the best student- remember that seasick slug from weeks gone by? Well, those fanciful eating habits have wreaked havoc on my digestion and given me a bit more that just bloat!
So, here’s the lowdown on the regime. Through reflexology, and liver, pancreatic and abdominal massage she expelled toxins, toned and strengthened muscles and, overall flushed my system of the garbage I had polluted it with. With this clean canvas, she then cracked down on my nutrition, devising and (bless her cotton socks) cooking my weekly meals, including every nutrient that the little one needed to be vibrant and healthy. And behold, I benefited too! My energy levels picked up, the bloat abated and my digestion… well, it digested.
Isabelle became a stream of love and energy for me and my baby. Her healing Reiki energy and nurturing ways cocooned us in health and happiness, and gave me a great lesson in what a mother should be. With her guidance, I took charge of myself and incorporated her wisdom and knowledge into my everyday life.

I need to start at the very beginning with my birth story. I am 38 and had previously had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. Very concerned this might happen again I heard about the Viveka Clinic in St John’s Wood and went for an early scan. Dr Gowri Motha, the writer of The Gentle Birth Method book, is linked to the clinic and I got really into her book and was a 100% set on a natural birth. Following her guidance I changed my diet, avoiding wheat, and ate very healthily; took the vitamins and herbal teas she suggested and had a fortnightly wonderful session of creative healing with Isabelle Weber she is brilliant!. Following this regime meant I had an amazingly healthy and enjoyable pregnancy.”

I was given 6 sessions of massage as a birthday present and this included a combination of Indonesian, Aromatherapy and Reflexology.
I have always been a bit of a sceptic as to the benefits of massages and alternative therapies but have now been totally converted.
The massage was conducted in a very professional way and left me feeling very calm and relaxed and with a great sense of well being and my body felt very good. All my aches and pains disappeared instantly.
I was given a diet to improve my digestive health which is the most sensible diet I have set eyes on. It is also designed to stop sagging energy levels during the day.
She was also able to advise me on ways I could improve my busy lifestyle to allow for enjoyment of the here and now. She is very knowledgeable about any topic you wish to bring up and can advise. She has just the right temperament and personality for her job and has a very nice manner.
Sessions with Isabelle would be a great present for a friend or loved one and I would recommend everyone here to have a look at her web site and treat themselves to one of several of life’s MUST experiences.
