The Quiet Way
The Quiet Way therapeutic approach to bodywork and wellbeing pays attention to the unspoken words within our bodies and to that place where we have become stuck or frozen in our primitive responses to painful life events, or those we have inherited.
Inertia in our system is caused when we are unable to release the impact of trauma, to fully move through the physical and emotional reactions to our life experiences, ranging from the most painful assaults on our system through the experiences of war or natural disaster, a road traffic accident, cancer diagnosis, to the deceptive such as a relationship breakup or moving home.
All of which can be translated into experiencing a range of symptoms such as: headaches, chronic muscular or join pain, digestive problems, anxiety, depression, insomnia or simply not living our lives to the fullest and with joy and vitality.
There are numerous benefits to massage, healing and botanical therapies, many still being researched, however it is accepted that they can:
• promote a sense of well-being
• relieve stress and anxiety, which may in turn help boost the immune system
• encourage a good night’s sleep
• ease pain, reduce muscular tension and improve posture
• encourage activation of the relaxation response
The Quiet Way approach brings together a range of integrative strategies, designed to guide you towards good health and a quality of life, living with purpose and comfort.
Reflexology, which has its roots in ancient Egypt, works on the principle that every organ and system of the body has a corresponding point or zone in the feet. The therapy involves massages each of the points around the toes, feet, ankles and claves to release tension, encourage homeostasis and promote feelings of well being.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using the essential oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.
Aromasticks are a great way to deliver essential oils. They can be easily made up and tailored to suit the individual. Each time the aromastick is used, a relaxation response builds. A key skill to achieving a calmer state is the capacity to self sooth and the aromastick enables us to do this.
Craniosacral bodywork is a gentle non-invasive therapy that supports your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and build your underlying energy.
About Jayne Doyle
I am Jayne, the founder of The Quiet Way – a unique therapeutic approach to bodywork and wellbeing suitable for both individuals and organisations.
After a career in sports and leisure management at the age of 24, I took some time out, travelling for 2 years. Wonderful experiences to broaden and deepen my life experience and exposure to other health modalities and spiritual teachings.
After these trips I retained in the healing arts. Following qualification in Reflexology in 1997, I went on to study a BSc in Health Sciences and Complementary Therapies at the University of Westminster, London, UK (2000). Post graduate advanced training has followed in a range of massage and energy therapy modalities and I have since worked with hundreds of people.
In 2010 an opportunity arose to work with the therapies with civil survivors of the Bosnia war, through a charity Healing Hands Network. People were referred to us through the Association of Concentration Camp Victims, the Association of Civil War Victims, Mothers of Srebrenica, Concentration Camp Union and the Centre for Torture Victims. This was some of the most profoundly intense and rewarding work of my career, motivated by my family connection with the Holocaust and has subsequently informed the ancestral trauma healing I offer today.
In 2013, I studied at The Christie NHS Trust in Manchester where I gained a Diploma in Adapting Complementary Therapies in Cancer and Supportive Care and led into work in the NHS Cancer and Palliative Care Services.
Initially I worked as a Cancer and Palliative Complementary Therapist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust. Moving to the position of Service Manager/Senior Therapist at the Macmillan Cancer Centre, UCLH NHS Trust, offering therapies and support to oncology and haematology outpatients, inpatients, chemotherapy suite patients and included adults, teenagers, paediatrics and their families, leaving the NHS in 2015.
Expanding my skill set further, in 2016 I gained a teaching certificate in Mindful Yin Yoga, from the Mindful Yoga Academy, Spain and in 2018 a Diploma in Quantum Botanicals, with the School of Natural Medicine.
My practice has seen a wonderful expansion over the last 20+ years and in all my work, my intention is to offer a therapeutic witnessing presence, a space for people to feel safe, to develop capacity, restore agency and fortitude.
From September 2019 to December 2019, I took a sabbatical, a wonderful journey to SE Asia. An opportunity to immerse in my own philosophical study and meditation practice and to attend modules of the Awakening Leadership training in Thailand, led by INEB [The International Network of Engaged Buddhists]. We are currently facing many global crises and in need of huge paradigm shifts to resolve them, moving towards a nature orientated, empathetic and community based model. As we move into 2020, I am sure the integration of this training and other immersions, will see further expansion of The Quiet Way into customisable executive leadership coaching, new classes in pranayama and meditation and week long retreats.
