My Story

Sarah Pinckney – ITEC Diploma in Holistic Therapeutic and Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Baby Massage & Yoga. Vitali-Chi Energy & Wellbeing Practitioner.

I am Sarah, a Mum to 3 boys and have successfully run my own Health & Wellbeing practise since 2012 in Colchester Essex. I am registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists and  currently studying a Diploma in Professional Life Coaching and Counselling.

My passion for Health & Wellbeing began back in 1997 when I was 27. I was feeling the pressures of becoming a new Mum and was busy juggling family and work life when symptoms of stress started to show, along with chronic lower back pain.  I began to feel very anxious, uptight and panic attacks set in which I hadn’t had since I was a child.  I had suffered on and off with anxiety and confidence issues since my parents separated when I was 6 yrs old and was shocked that I was once again feeling so vulnerable. My hormones were all over the place, I was exhausted and felt I had to do something to help myself for myself and my family.

A friend recommended a local Complimentary Practitioner, Jill Jesson, to me who is the founder of Vitali-Chi based in West Mersea Colchester. Jill combines Kinesiology, Massage and Life Coaching with Vitali-Chi an Energy & Wellbeing system that uses natural healing properties to heal symptoms of the mind and body. This amazing 100% natural treatment got to the root cause of my symptoms.

I wanted to take the natural path and did not want to take medications as I felt this would just mask what was really going on. I wanted to get to the root of my anxieties and fears and release them so I could move forward confident, happy and secure in myself.

Ultimately this is what happened. My therapy and treatments over the years has transformed me into a confident, positive person free from fear and anxiety. I was able to let go of all the negative emotions that were holding me back from living a fulfilled life. It wasn’t easy, there were a lot of tears as I let go but it was all so worth it.

Over the years I became inspired to train to become a health practitioner and my passion and drive for helping others is what has made my business thrive today.

Relaxation therapies such as massage meditation and yoga are a big part of my life and regular Vitali-Chi treatments help me to stay energised and balanced when life is busy (please take a look at my Vitali-Chi Page for more information on this amazing therapy).

Today I work with clients from all backgrounds presenting with all manner of health conditions. I offer tailored treatments that include Massage Therapy, Energy Healing (Vitali-Chi) and coaching. I have a fantastic network of other professional therapists including Osteopaths, nutritionists and fitness experts who I can refer clients to if we feel they need it.

‘My mission is to provide you with an individual tailored healthcare plan that will mean you leave my clinic feeling physically and emotionally supported with the right treatment and tools to help you lead a happier healthier life!
