Cheryl Jenkins (CJ) PhD

Our body, or soma, is an amazing resource we can draw from once we learn how to sense,
feel and connect with it.

CJ has been exploring and practising various styles of bodywork and somatic therapies since 2000.
She has trained in a variety of modalities
and is offering Somatic Therapy including Pesso-Boyden psychotherapy, and Thomas Hanna
Somatics at The Blue Lotus Therapy Centre, Cornwall.

CJ is fascinated by what it means to be human and how we can engage, enjoy, and
experience life in a fulfilling way. Throughout her journey, CJ has focused on understanding
what can limit us, and stop us from living freely and fiercely, particularly because of trauma
and life challenges that might affect us physically, mentally and/or emotionally. A
cornerstone of her work is engaging with the body, the mind, and the brain so that we can
reconnect with all our senses – either with the breath, focused movements, and tuning into
sensations, images, memories, or anything else that may arise during the session. With CJ
gently guiding you, you will learn to engage and regulate your nervous system to find a
sense of ease and well being to help move forwards despite the challenges of life.
CJ is committed to providing her best for her clients and receives regular supervision from
her somatic therapy and bodywork mentors. CJ is a member of the National Council of
Integrative Psychotherapists and the British Complementary Medicine Association.
Which session might be best for you?

Somatic therapy offers the opportunity to create space, slow down and explore what’s
happening in your life, how you experience your life through your body, and how you might
expand your capacity to live more fully. CJ draws from a variety of somatic traditions to help
you connect with bodily sensations, movements, and feelings to engage with your felt
sense. When we connect with the felt sense of the felt self, awareness develops, insight
emerges, and shifts take place. This facilitates therapeutic change, emotional re-education,
integration of past and present challenges to create new possibilities for yourself and your
life, and reconnection with your power and agency.

Pesso-Boyden is a body-based psychotherapy method developed by Al Pesso and Diane
Boyden, two dancers who combined depth psychology and bodywork with the latest
neuroscience to help people have a felt-sense experience of getting their needs met,
creating a new blueprint to inform life. Clients report a lessening of the power of trauma or
unmet developmental needs and a greater connection with their true selves so that they
can experience more pleasure, satisfaction, meaning and connectedness with others in daily

Thomas Hanna Somatics is movement-based re-education where you will learn to sense
and feel your soma (body) to engage (shorten), lengthen, release, and relax your tissues. It
can address physical issues such as lower back, neck, hip, jaw, pelvic, or knee pain or injuries
and postural problems. Somatics can help you find both physical and emotional resilience,
freedom in the breath and calm in the mind.

She has spent many years researching all aspects of nutrition and well being, developing her skills and knowledge by visiting renowned centres of excellence around the world, including the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida.

Ruth founded The Cleansing Space when she identified a need for patients’ colonic hydrotherapy treatments to be supported with world-class knowledge and advice. This led her to develop her unique “Cleanse Rituals’ treatment and bespoke detox programmes to address individual patients’ specific health conditions and goals.

Ruth’s experience and knowledge, drawn from research and the best treatment facilities around the world, enables her to inform and educate her clients on how everything within the body is connected – from the nutrition we derive from the food we eat through to the impact of the stress we experience in our daily lives and the toxins we either ingest or come into contact with at work and home.

Ruth works intuitively, tailoring each treatment to whatever it is that your body needs, including nutritional advice and techniques you can use at home to enhance your wellbeing.

In 2017, drawing on her expertise, Ruth launched her own range of high quality cleanse products. A full range of hand-picked products and supplements is available to purchase at our clinic and is available online at The Cleansing Space Store website so that you can continue the good work in your daily life.

Laura Caddis

Laura is an Independent Nurse Prescriber who offers aesthetic injectable treatments with the aim to achieve a natural refreshed look. With fourteen years of varied nursing experience including working with the leading cosmetic and dermatology consultant doctors in the South West, Laura really enjoys seeing how these treatments can make a difference to her clients and boost confidence.

Anti-wrinkle injections may be used to soften and relax lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.

Dermal filler consists of hyaluronic acid gel which may be placed in and around the lips to produce a little volume and soften lines around the mouth. It may also be used to lift nasolabial folds or marionette lines to restore volume and decrease shadow in the lower face. A cheek enhancement may also be beneficial to define the cheeks and produce a little lift.

Profhilo skin rejuvenation is a lighter hyaluronic acid that is injected just beneath the surface of the skin to improve hydration and luminosity. It also stimulates collagen and elastin to remodel the skin and reduce laxity. This is suitable for any area on the body that suffers from signs of aging including: face, neck, decolletage, hands, upper arms, and abdomen.

Mapmymole skin checking service is also available at the clinic. Laura can use a specialist lens to take photos of up to three skin lesions that you may be concerned about. These are sent straight to a local consultant dermatologist, who will email you a full report with their professional opinion and advice on what steps to take next.

Laura would love to meet you for a free consultation to discuss how these treatments may help you and create a bespoke treatment plan.

Appointments available on a Saturday morning.

Martin Paine

My core training was in Reichian psychotherapy – character analysis and bodywork.
My understanding of the nature of the self – the nature of human nature – comes
also from training in Buddhism. I am a Healer Member of the Pilgrim Healers.
Ecotherapy. All this I now place in the broader context of Deep Ecology and
Ecopsychology.  I have trained with Joanna Macy and am accredited by her as a
facilitator of what is now called The Work that Reconnects.

Ecopsychology considers human identity as inseparably and intimately part of the natural world.
Ecotherapy can involve simply enjoying the support of the Natural Environment –
and we have access to woodland adjacent to the Blue Lotus Therapy Centre – and
recovering our relationship with it as a member of the Earth community.

Ecopsychotherapy admits the distress we all feel at some level at environmental
destruction and the climate crisis.

Touch for Health is a non-invasive, simple and safe form of kinesiology that
combines modern Western techniques with traditional 5-element Chinese medicine
to restore body and mind.  A great strength of Touch for Health is the number of self-
help tools that can be offered to clients to practise on their own and make their own.
My personal practice includes Healing Tao, or Taoist Chi Kung/Qi Gong, which
influences and feeds into my therapy and healing work and which is also based on
Chinese 5-elelemt theory.

Systemic Constellations. Although best known for exploring family dynamics,
systemic constellations are also a powerful tool for examining any and all of our
important relationships in life, including our relationship with Nature.
Constellations can represent or map other wider systems such as organisations,
and, for example, the hidden stories and influences of systemic racism, colonialism
or the gender divide.  They form part of my Men’s work. This is deep soul work that
directly reaches the parts that other practices can approach only slowly or rarely.

Systemic Constellations can reveal the undercurrents of our lives, the undertows that
sometimes take us to places where we do not want to be, or where we are unwell or
feel unsafe.

Gemma Starling BSc(Hons), PGCE, LicAc, MBAcC

About Me

I am a fully qualified and experienced Traditional Acupuncturist, specialising in Five Element Theory.
Having experienced the positive benefits of regular Acupuncture whilst working as a teacher in my
twenties, I later decided to completely change direction and enrol on a three year degree-level
Licentiate Course at the Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa where I graduated with
Distinction (LicAc). Since graduating I haven’t looked back. I love helping others improve their health
and wellbeing using an incredibly gentle, natural and ancient form of medicine.

professional indemnity and public liability insurance cover. I am also licensed to practise by Cornwall

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been practised in China and the Far East for over 3000 years. In recent years,
research highlighting Acupuncture’s effectiveness in treating a wide range of conditions, has led to it
becoming an increasingly popular treatment option for patients in the West.

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s own healing response by encouraging the smooth flow
of vital energy (Qi) throughout the body. The focus for an Acupuncturist is on the patient as a whole
as all symptoms are viewed in an interconnected way. Five Element Acupuncture can be particularly
beneficial as it works specifically at identifying the root cause of a symptom or illness, therefore
symptoms are less likely to return and the whole body tends to heal itself, not just physically, but
mentally, emotionally and spiritually too.

What Can Acupuncture Treat?

Many people seek Acupuncture treatments to relieve specific aches and pains such as tension type
headaches or migraines, or for other common health problems such as emotional imbalances,
digestive problems, allergies, disrupted sleep or menstrual disturbances. Many also have regular
treatments as a preventative to ill-health or simply because they find it relaxing and beneficial to
their general well-being.

The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) has compiled a selection of fact sheets which provide
accurate and unbiased general information on the benefits of Acupuncture for a wide variety of

What Does a Treatment Involve?

Your initial visit will last between 1.5 and 2 hrs and will involve obtaining a thorough understanding
of your main complaint in addition to your general health and lifestyle. This will include questions
about your medical history, current medications (if any), as well as questions about your sleep,

appetite, digestion, and general well being etc. You will also be given the opportunity to discuss any
troubles or concerns you are currently going though – should you wish. Complete confidentiality is
always maintained regarding anything discussed within a session. After your consultation I will carry
out a few non-invasive diagnostic tests such as a blood pressure reading, pulse readings and a
temperature distribution test; followed by your first treatment.

During subsequent visits, appointments last approximately 1 hr. These sessions start with a review of
your progress since your previous appointment followed by an appropriately planned treatment.

The effects of Acupuncture Treatments are cumulative so a series of treatments are usually required
to achieve a desired response. Health improvements usually start to be seen after 4 weekly sessions;
after this, treatments can be spread further apart. However healing responses and rates are unique
to each patient. Alongside symptomatic improvements, Acupuncture often helps people to ‘feel like
themselves again’.

What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?

Some patients have concerns that Acupuncture may be painful. However since very fine single-use
pre-sterilised needles are used, there is usually only a very slight sensation, if any, as it enters the
skin. Sometimes patients can experience tingling or a dull-ache but if this occurs it only lasts briefly
and tends to not be perceived as uncomfortable.

Most people find Acupuncture relaxing and calming. Some people feel tired and occasionally light
headed following a treatment but these feelings are short-lived and are just a sign that your body is
responding to treatments and is starting its healing response.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

When administered by a fully trained practitioner, Acupuncture is one of the safest medical
treatments currently on offer in the UK. Any minor side effects that do occur, such as dizziness or
bruising around needle points, are infrequent, mild and self-correcting. To see more information
regarding the safety of Acupuncture please visit the British Acupuncture Council’s website.

“I have been seeing Pippa periodically over the past 5 years, initially suffering from a debilitating sleeping problem. Having spent months taking sleeping tablets and doing everything that the doctors suggested I do to alleviate this problem; I was no further forth and had reached breaking point. My initial meeting with Pippa was reassuring, supportive and above all gave me tremendous hope for eliminating my current issues. Needless to say, I after a few sessions, I now manage my sleep very well. I am now a regular visitor to Pippa, amongst other things she has the greatest ability to calm my nerves, help me to stay focused and positive on whatever emotional and physical issues that are thrown my way. My most recent appointments have been around fertility issues which she has helped me over come and given me the strength, encouragement and belief that I could get pregnant…..I am currently expecting! I cannot speak or recommend more highly Pippa King she has been so influential in my life, giving me the tools that allow me to resolve and conquer my emotional and physical problems.”
