The idea of FIT MUM came to me when I became pregnant with my first baby, back in 2008. Having been passionately involved in fitness and wellness all my life, I was surprised at how difficult it was to find a proper way and a ‘feel good’ place to exercise safely during my pregnancy and later on as a mum.
So I focused on researching the best way for me and the growing baby in my tummy to be and stay fit and healthy. I practiced yoga, relaxation and meditation and appropriate aerobic workouts. I was determined to have a powerful delivery experience. I wanted to be in control and prepared and in the best possible mental and physical shape for the big day….When the time came, everything went so quickly…… I didn’t even realize and I was back at home with my new born baby, with the feeling of having achieved my goal!
Soon, my son was growing and along with him, similarly fast, my need for a physical workout, not only for fitness, but also as something I do just for me. I made the decision to create a way for new mums like myself to have access to specialised support and training during such an important stage in their lives.
It has been 5 years,I have two children now and I find that I have gained not only a career I truly enjoy, but a community of happy and healthy mums who are always striving to be the best they can be for themselves and their babies.

Here at Haven Therapies we believe that health is not simply the absence of disease or pain. It is a state of balance and harmony between the body and mind. A healthy person should be able to respond to events such as accidents, physical trauma, infections or emotional stress, but a lasting strain often remains.
Gradually the body may find it more and more difficult to cope with the accumulated stresses. Craniosacral Therapy , Osteopathy, Reflexology, Physical Therapy and Pulsed Signal Therapy treatments help to restore the body to optimum health.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is so gentle that it is suitable for babies, children, the elderly, as well as adults. Craninosacral can aid almost any condition, raising vitality and improving the body’s capacity for self-repair. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called The Craniosacral System – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
