Arlene Headshot close-up-My name is Arlene Dunkley-Wood. Welcome to my website!

This website shows you that I have a unique skill and passion for the work I do, be it in a therapeutic  way as a complimentary therapist or in my work with expectant mothers, babies and the their partners.  I have always been fascinated by the human form, movement,  health and well-being.

I started this journey in 1987 and trained in the following disciplines :Therapeutic Massage; Craniosacral Therapy; Counselling; Yoga Therapy for Pregnancy and fertility; and general Scaravelli-inspired Hatha Yoga.  More recently, I have begun using doTERRA essential therapeutic oils to incorporate the Aromatouch technique into my massage and this year trained as a Mizan Therapist.  I practice as a therapist 2 times a week at centres in Walthamstow.

In and alongside the therapeutic work.  I  support woman at their births as a doula; which means I support mothers or couples with birth preparation, and as a birth attendant.

I love teaching workshops and presenting about my work, and I am often invited as a guest speaker to talk to students training in colleges.  Over the past few years my role has changed slightly and I now mentor trainee doulas, as well as attend private births if asked.

The services I offer can be on a 1-2-1 basis or in a class setting, so check out the website and see which service or schedule suit your needs.

I remain excited with my work with families, and I invite you to come and experience the unique services I have to offer.
