More than relaxation, pain, anxiety and fatigue therapy in Exeter's heart

At a tranquil centre in the heart of the city Alison provides deeply nourishing and relaxing treatments, just for you; or as pain, anxiety, fatigue etc. therapy in Exeter; using Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy.

As a practitioner of Reiki and Craniosacral therapy at The Exeter Natural Health Centre Alison finds it extremely rewarding to help others find the precious qualities these techniques have brought her. Alison has particular experience using Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy to address 'stuck' injuries etc where nothing else seems to work,  M.E., spinal problems, chronic pain, anxiety, stress, insomnia, migraines, relationship difficulties, birth and other trauma, and fatigue for Exeter clients. Alison finds it particularly inspiring that Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy can help clients on a journey towards their best selves and is interested in how compassion and mindfullness can be used to this end.

Alison's long-term experiences and interest in the body have given her further insights into various bodily systems and the use of Reiki and Craniosacral therapy to support them. These include a PhD and various other medical engineering projects involving the immune and respiratory system and the hip joint.

The painting on the welcome page is largely based on a dream Alison had around 15 years before she decided to study Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki.  The dream began with a frightening roaring lion that turned out to be very small with a big bristly dark mane. The lion was nurtured by a King and Queen and grew big and calm and lost it’s bristly mane. It was then able to take the King and Queen flying and help them awaken people in suspended animation hanging in the sky. For Alison many of the details of this dream resonate with things she has learned through Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki and it feels very right for her to be practicing them both. The name Rozalla was also inspired by a dream, in which it was the name of a house.

Alison is fully qualified and insured as a practitioner of Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy and would love to hear from you, details here to book a profoundly relaxing treatment just for you or as a therapy for anxiety, pain or fatigue etc. in Exeter's heart.



Prior to starting Craniosacral therapy I wasn't sure what it was or whether it would work for me. I used to suffer from horrible lower back pain and had to put my legs up every night in order to sleep. I heard from a few people that it cured their pain and relaxed them to the core. During my first session with Alison I reached the deepest state of relaxation I've experienced and left without pain in my back. That was only the first session! I no longer need that pillow for my legs to sleep. It's remarkable what her sessions have done for my mind and body. If any of you locals are interested in trying her out, please do. I'm now a huge Craniosacral therapy advocate and highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks Alison Macdonald for all your help. I'm lucky to have met you. 



Alison is a very compassionate, authentic therapist. Every time I have a treatment, I feel lighter, happier and I definitely have more head space to deal with the practicalities of life with 3 teenagers. Thank you Alison, I look forward to the next one'.



I've found Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki with Alison so very helpful. My pain is much more manageable now and I tried so many other techniques (alternative and main stream) that did'nt touch it.



I came to Alison about issues with stress-related migraines, constant tiredness and low energy. I didn’t know what to expect. The session was very gentle but the effect was almost immediately tangible. My energy was up, I felt a lot calmer and since the treatment, the migraines have significantly reduced in frequency. Will be asking for more sessions. Highly recommended
