My name is Anna Stone and I'm the founder of Calme Therapies in High Wycombe.
For a good few years I worked in rather high pressure office roles and although I loved my work I pretty much always felt stressed. Somehow I managed to ignore my ever increasing stress and anxiety levels and I never thought to attribute my constant shoulder tension, frequent headaches, stomach pain and insomnia to stress.
Things changed when I was diagnosed with PCOS, a disorder of the endocrine system which can affect fertility. I was very shocked by this as I was keen to start a family and decided to research the condition in order to find out how I could manage it. I soon discovered that high stress levels could have a huge impact on PCOS so I began considering what I could do to reduce my stress levels and bring myself back into some kind of balance. I was amazed to discover there were many therapies and relaxation techniques out there that could benefit me and was even more astounded when the ones I tried actually started to work! I was a total convert to complementary therapies and what they could achieve.
So here I am a few years (and two happy and healthy pregnancies) later. By furthering my education into complementary therapies and stress reduction I’ve increased my passion for them even further. Along the way I’ve completed formal practitioner level qualifications in various massage therapies, aromatherapy and relaxation therapy, have built a rather lovely treatment room at the end of my garden and have created Calme Therapies in order to bring relaxation, stress reduction and well-being to others.
I’d love to hear from you if you have any questions or would like to know more about the therapies I provide.
