Great service! Michelle was so welcoming and friendly and is passionate about making people feel their best! Will be recommending and revisiting 😊
Michelle, you are truly amazing!
Every time I visited I leave with new information and knowledge and I’m grateful for your wealth of knowledge.
You are beautiful in and out and your expertise and professionalism is impressive.
A true inspiration!
Thank you for all your help and ongoing help. You’ve helped me in ways I can’t even help myself (haha)
Highly recommended and an investment into your health and wellbeing.
I was told by a private gastroenterologist I had a dropped large intestine and will be on laxatives for the rest of my life (now 36) they were making me fee horrible and not getting rid of the full compacted problem. I spoke to Michelle and she put everything into perspective and assured me that she can help. I had my first appointment last night and wow it was fantastic, I was extremely nervous but Michelle calmed me down. I can honestly say she has changed my life already, I don’t feel bloated, tired, grumpy or in any pain and that is the first appointment. Chucked the laxatives away and believe Michelle can train my bowels to behave and act normal. I cannot recommend Michelle enough. Thank you so much. 😊
Was in a bad way and was feeling really bad. I contacted Eternal Being and talked through my problems with Michelle, and made an appointment. I got immediate relief and over a few sessions got back to normal from really bad inflammation. Michelle was brilliant and gave me great advice and treatment. I would highly recommend getting a consultation if you have any issues. Thanks Michelle. Richard 👍🙂
Michelle is so tuned in to your body and knows what it needs. I have regular colonic treatments and feel fantastic. After having major ankle surgery late November 2023, I had a lymphatic massage to help my body recover. AMAZING!!! Thank you so much Michelle
Where do I start to tell you my journey with Michelle at Eternalbeing. TBH I hadn't heard of EB it only came about when I was talking to a gym buddy and we started talking about feeling bloaty, irregular bowel movement. So I thought as I have had problems since being a young girl around the age of 5 when I really struggled to go to the toilet so I was injected in the bottom to help me. So when I looked into the services that EB do I was so excited to think there was someone out there who may be able to help me. I made the call I was very nervous but after a telephone conversation which lasted about half an hour I booked in with her. Well, what an experience that was. Never thought in a million years my issues, fears quickly went away. My first clonic liver cleanse was a little bit surreal. How can I just be so relaxed and able to pooh after a few reassuring words from Michelle. We laugh all the time she still says after 10 years LOOK at your pooh train. I will be honest I did suffer from a headache afterwards but Michelle did warn me this would happen but soon subsided. Lots of water and not too much food after the treatment. I was taken suppliments to help me with my daily routine. Vitamin D3,
Bifido and Fibre,live cultures supplement for women, zinc citrate,
Alway I use her own patches
BIO MAGNETIC this to help my joints as I work out everyday
Sleep patch as I was struggling but ATM I'm sleeping very well.
Now about. Michelle my pooh fairy. This women is so passionate about her work to help others, always around of you need advise. She's my hero and best of all Michelle listens to you. Never rushes you, if these are going to plan with your treatment she ensures we rest and then try again.
Honestly, if you're not too sure about having a treatment I can assure you you would not be disappointed. I love her my pooh fairy
After years of stomach bloating, cramps and pain. Taking medication to relive the symptoms.
I visited Michelle for the first time in January. I have not looked back since. I have not had to take any medication since.
I really felt listened to and I am so pleased I picked the phone up and made that call.
I have more energy and my overall health has improved so much 😊
Great Treatment Michell. Thanks.
I've been going for years, Michelle always helpful and achieves great results everytine !
I had suffered with minor gut issues on and off for years but put it down to diet. Past 6 months noticed a gradual increase in feeling bloated, fatigued and no energy or motivation to exercise. I improved my diet with organic produce where possible and did the obvious but still felt full, bloated and sluggish. I had heard of colonics before but had no knowledge of what they did or why you would have one. After some googling, Eternal Being popped us a ‘colonics near me’ and so I checked out their website which prompted a consultation with Michelle and then a colonic hydrotherapy with liver cleanse. Consultation phase was thorough and the colonic was no where near as invasive as I thought it would be nor embarrassing. The feeling of relief was almost euphoric after feeling yuk for so long and the aftercare with Michelle’s knowledge gives me confidence the investment in myself was worth it! All puns intended, Michelle really knows her s#%t!
Great service as always from Michelle. I come about once a quarter and always look forward to the treatment as you know your interests and treatment best practice always come first every time.
Wish I had discovered Eternal Being sooner! Michelle is an absolute STAR - she understands what I need and is never short on advice. Her treatments are brilliant and her reassuring nature allows you to be at ease no matter what the treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle and Eternal Being to my contacts.
Michelle is amazing!

She's so supportive, passionate, friendly and welcoming in her advise/practice.

Before I went to Michelle all I ever thought about my my stomach issues. All I ever talked about was my stomach issues. The discomfort was daily and progressively getting worse. After over 2 years of issues and getting no where through the NHS, I reached out to Michelle and after meeting her for our consultation I finally felt confident that this wasn't going to be forever and that there was hope. For the first time in 2 years someone had told me that they can help me instead of saying 'ots JUST stomach issues, it's JUST iBS.

The tests Michelle did came back with detailed, personal results and Michelle's gave clean instructions on how we can fix my gut health together.

She's super friendly and makes you feel instantly at ease at any appointment.

Thankyou Michelle ☺️💩
Another excellent treatment from Michelle, I have a taken advice from Michelle and had regular colonic treatments over the last 12 years in relation to my gut problems and bloating. Can I stress it is not an uncomfortable treatment as she is highly qualified in her area of expertise.
Well worth a consultation and a treatment if you are suffering in agony with your gut problems. Michelle is extremely qualified in this area and has more extensive knowledge than many GP’s. Michelle will listen to your problem and will get to the bottom of your issues.
Thanks again Michelle look forward to the next treatment in March.
Since giving birth to my son in Oct 2022 I have suffered with anxiety and stress that has severely impacted my digestive system. I've been going to Michelle at Eternal Being because she helped me out many years ago with gut issues and I knew she would be able to help me out this time also. She's so incredibly knowledgeable about pretty much everything but especially gut and poop related issues. She's so professional but also makes you feel so at ease, she's brilliant at what she does and she's made me feel like my pre pregnancy self again. The treatment itself is actually very relaxing and I feel rejuvenated afterwards. Thank you so much Michelle aka the poop fairy! xxx
I first contacted Eternal Being and spoke with Michelle in July this year . I was really struggling both emotionally with grief and with my health, feeling generally unwell, bloated , lethargic and just not well 🤧 having felt like this for many years I had settled for the fact that this was how I was always going to feel .
After a bad fall through being so tired and lethargic at the start of July and suffering several injuries including a fractured wrist, I decided it was time to at least try to change the way I felt . Eternal Being was the very first place I read about and something told me that this was a good place , how right I was . Michelle called me following my email and I could tell straight away what a lovely person she was and clearly very passionate about what she does . I had my first appointment and found Michelle to be very friendly, warm, caring, very straight talking and honest with a terrific sense of humour 😊( very important ). I booked in for my first colonic and like many people I had preconceived ideas of what was involved It was nothing at all like I imagined, the treatment room ( like all of Eternal Being) was really lovely , comfortable, warm , very private a really calming peaceful place for a treatment . Michelle is extremely knowledgeable and every step was explained and done with care. We laughed a lot and talked a lot as well Michelle is a wonderful therapist and I came away from my first session feeling already better within myself and very positive about another treatment . I think it is so important to be open minded about this type of treatment, this isn’t a one size fits all situation and Michelle works out a treatment plan for each client individually depending on what they need. I have had a gut analysis done and Michelle has got a treatment plan for me going forward ,I have had several sessions and can honestly say I already feel so very different, I have a better understanding as well of how the gut is so closely linked to emotional well being something I definitely didn’t realise before seeing Michelle . This is a journey and not a quick fix but I am so glad I have started on it after many , many years of just accepting how I felt . I can’t imagine doing it anywhere else or with anyone else . So Michelle thank you so so much I I look forward to continuing this journey with you 😊👍🏼
I've been coming to Michelle for almost 2 years now and she honestly changed my life. She is so knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her clients and her work. I really can't recommend her enough, she's just the best!

The science of sleep and the secrets of a good night’s sleep

Our blog today will try to unlock the science and secrets of a good night’s sleep. In our fast-paced world, getting a good night’s sleep often feels like a distant dream. With the demands of work, family, and personal commitments, it’s no wonder that many of us struggle to catch those elusive Zs.  Our health and well-being depend on sleep, yet we are largely unaware of how sleep works to achieve a restful night. Here, we’ll explore some key strategies to improve your sleep quality and introduce you to a modern aid that’s gaining popularity: sleep patches.

What happens during sleep cycles?

Why do scientists say we should get 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep? Well, there’s science behind it. Non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep are types of sleep. NREM sleep is divided into stages with unique characteristics representing a continuum of relative depth. Let’s take a look at each of the sleep cycle stages:

NREM Stage 1 (N1)

Non-rapid eye movement (NREM) stage 1 lasts for only a few minutes. During this stage the heart rate slows down, body temperature decreases and muscles relax. This is a light sleep that can be easily woken up. It serves as a transition stage, preparing our bodies for deeper sleep.

NREM Stage 2 (N2)

During NREM stage, N2 sleep deepens. While the heart rate and body temperature drop further, and the brain starts to produce sleep spindles – bursts of rapid brain activity. The stage serves as a buffer, preventing potential disturbances from disrupting our sleep. 

NREM Stage 3 (N3)

NREM stage N3 plays an important role in physical rejuvenation as during this stage, tissues grow, vital hormones are released, and the body relaxes even further. The brain activity during this stage is known as delta waves.

REM Sleep

Dreams occur during REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, which typically starts 90 minutes after we fall asleep. The sleep cycle has two phases: phasic and tonic. Phasic REM sleep contains bursts of rapid eye movement, while tonic REM sleep does not. Brain activity during REM sleep is similar to brain activity during waking hours.

Why is REM the most important stage?

During REM sleep, the brain undergoes a unique neurochemical bath in which stress-related neurotransmitters are at their lowest levels. The brain processes emotions without the usual stress and intensity of wakefulness, aiding in emotional healing. 

Furthermore, the brain consolidates memories and strengthens neural connections during REM sleep, which is crucial to learning and cognitive function. This is why sleep is so important to mental health, and inadequate REM sleep leads to poorer performance in tasks, reduced mental abilities and depression.

Our 24-hour clock

Our sleep is governed by an internal clock known as the circadian rhythm, which regulates sleep cycles, physical activity, body temperature, heart rate, and hormone secretion over a 24-hour period. 

Our 24-hour clock is aligned with the 24-hour rotation of the planet and must adjust by about 12 to 18 minutes every day. It is influenced by external cues like light and temperature, and disruptions such as exposure to light at night, noise, stress, fatigue and illness. When the circadian rhythm is desynchronised, it doesn’t function properly, leading to sleep disorders. 

How can you improve sleep quality?

Stay consistent with your sleep schedule: Sleeping and waking at the same time reinforces the body’s circadian rhythm, improving sleep quality overall.Try to get up at around the same time every morning to enhance your REM sleep, regardless of how tempting it is to have a lie-in on the weekends.

Create a relaxing bedtime routine: A calming pre-sleep routine signals your body that it’s time to wind down. Activities such as reading, taking a warm bath, or practising gentle yoga can help ease the transition from wakefulness to sleep. Avoid stimulating activities like intense exercise or screen time at least an hour before bed.

Optimise your sleep environment: Your bedroom should be a sanctuary for sleep. Ensure your room is cool, dark, and quiet. Consider using blackout curtains to block out light and a white noise machine to drown out disruptive sounds. Investing in a comfortable mattress and pillows can also make a significant difference.

Limit alcohol and caffeine intake: Alcohol and caffeine can suppress REM sleep, so try to limit daily intake. Furthermore, it is recommended not to drink coffee after 12 p.m., since caffeine may still be present in your system at night.

Don’t suppress Melatonin: Produced by the pineal gland in the brain, melatonin is often dubbed the “sleep hormone” due to its crucial role in inducing sleepiness. Light exposure impacts its secretion, with levels increasing in the evening as darkness falls, peaking around 2 am, and then gradually declining as dawn approaches. Make sure to limit screen time, use blue light filters , and increase your exposure to natural light during the day.

Watch what you eat and drink: What you consume in the hours leading up to bedtime can impact your sleep. Avoid heavy meals, caffeine, and alcohol close to bedtime. Instead, opt for a light snack if you’re hungry, and stay hydrated throughout the day rather than drinking large amounts of water before bed.

How can you ensure good sleep hygiene?

Sleep hygiene refers to practices and habits that promote consistent, restorative sleep. This involves maintaining a regular sleep schedule, even on weekends, and creating a conducive sleep environment with a dark, quiet, and cool room, using blackout curtains or white noise machines if necessary. 

A calming pre-sleep routine, such as reading or meditation, helps signal the body to wind down while reducing screen exposure is important to prevent disruption of melatonin production. Consuming foods and supplements rich in tryptophan, magnesium, or melatonin, like turkey, almonds, or cherries, in the evening can also aid sleep, and taking supplements in the morning can support your sleep/wake cycle.

The Role of Sleep Patches

In addition to these traditional strategies, sleep patches are becoming a popular tool for enhancing sleep quality. These patches are designed to deliver natural ingredients that promote relaxation and sleep through your skin, providing a non-invasive and convenient solution.

Sleep patches typically contain ingredients such as melatonin, lavender, and magnesium and help signal to your body that it’s time to sleep. Benefits of sleep patches include:

  • Convenience: Simply apply a patch to a clean, dry area of your skin before

bed. There’s no need to worry about taking pills or mixing supplements.

  • Steady Release: Sleep patches provide a steady release of ingredients throughout the night, helping you stay asleep longer.
  • Natural Ingredients: Many sleep patches use natural, non-habit-forming ingredients, making them a safer alternative to some over-the-counter sleep aids.

The science behind a good night’s sleep: the bottom line

Achieving a good night’s sleep involves a combination of healthy habits, a conducive sleep environment, and, for some, the addition of sleep aids like sleep patches. By incorporating these strategies, you can unlock the secrets to restorative slumber and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day. Sweet dreams!
