EYESIGHT IMPROVEMENT CLASSES
Miriam’s therapies have been a total revelation! We take our vision so much for granted, stronger glasses are the easy answer. I wanted to try something else. with Miriam’s guidance and methods we discovered we have a lazy eye (who knew!) and now I am able to get both ayes working as a pair.
Miriam is so welcoming and caring of her clients. She takes the time to understand any problems you may be experiencing both physically and emotionally and helps you to work through them. I have been getting regular reflexology and reiki from Miriam for a couple of months and I am already noticing positive changes. At first I was a bit sceptical about reiki, however I can honestly say that it has amazing benefits. I would definitely recommend Miriam, she is a lovely warm person who is truly passionate and gifted. Thank you Miriam x
LOWER BACK PAIN – REIKI HEALING:
I tried Reiki for the first time 2 weeks ago. I was constantly feeling run down and suffering from lower back pain. Any time I wanted to work out or go for a run I felt it was forced and half hearted. However, after my session with Miriam I felt great. Even walking home after the session I felt uplifted and happier. The next day I got up and went out for a run and even had a workout in the afternoon and still felt great afterwards. Every run or workout since has been positive with no feeling of ‘I can’t be bothered’.
I have also noticed that there is no longer stiffness in my back when I stand up, where as before I felt like an old man while getting to my feet.
All this after one session. I can’t recommend Miriam enough.
Miriam is fantastic. After having had several treatments with her (reflexology, Reiki Healing, aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage massage, and NLP), the psoriasis that I’ve had since I was 7, has completely disappeared. No red patches. No trace of any bit left. Magically gone. And my skin is nice & smooth. I’m so happy I cannot recommend Miriam enough. Thank you!
STRESS – REIKI:
Miriam is such a kind and warm soul. She made me feel very welcome and really cares about her clients. The reiki and crystals was so relaxing and enjoyable and a definate stress buster for people with busy lifes to take me time and ground yourself and take notice of life. A must try for everyone, just think of as a mind pampering session. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for a wonderful session X
Been to Miriam twice for a swedish massage and some Reiki as for over a year I have been suffering from a sore shoulder. My treatments with her have made a big difference to myself and would have no hesitation recommending Miriam. The pain had completely gone after my two treatments and even after some good months the pain has not come back! Many thanks!!!
WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMME (click here if you are interested in loosing weight)

I’ve recently started attending. I started with a simple back massage due to having a little pain in my shoulder,and have quickly moved onto reflexology, what can I say!!. I was a little sceptical at first but it was the right choice!.After Miriam’s recommendation of reflexology I’m glad I took her word for it!.amazing experience I felt so relaxed after one session, and can’t wait for the reiki session next time.thanks Miriam!.
PAIN RELIEF – BACK SWEDISH MASSAGE:
I called out of the blue as I had a issue with back pain and Miriam offered me a appointment that afternoon.
Fantastic service great relaxing massage and pain gone, all good thank you Miriam
STIFF SHOULDERS & NECK – REFLEXOLOGY:
When I first decided to try reflexology with Miriam I had no real idea what to expect. I didn’t have any specific health problems, I was just curious to see what the fuss was about. I thought it might be relaxing, but I have been amazed at just how relaxing it is. I always try to stay awake during the treatment sessions, but I have never managed it yet. I always fall asleep then wake up wonderfully refreshed. One day I told Miriam that my shoulders felt a bit stiff. After an hour of reflexology my neck and shoulders felt so loose I was almost worried that my head would fall off! I don’t know how she does this just by touching my feet. I can only conclude that Miriam has magic powers. I can thoroughly recommend her reflexology treatments, and I will be treating myself to many more.
VITALITY – REIKI HEALING
I’ve so far had one reiki session with Miriam and felt the difference immediately after the session and still feel the benefits five days on. Would thoroughly recommend.
STRESS – REIKI HEALING:
Had my first Reiki therapy today with Miriam and was pleasantly surprised. Not having experienced Reiki before I didn’t know what to expect. Miriam instantly put me at ease and before I knew it I was truly relaxed so much so I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and will be making another appointment to keep those stress levels at bay.
Having been to a number of therapists over the years I cannot recommend Miriam highly enough. Both the Reiki and Reflexology sessions were amazing and I cannot wait to go back again for my next session. I’m a self confessed workaholic and stress freak and feel that even after my first sessions you have helped to set me on the right path again.
A true professional… I cannot believe how lucky I am to have found you! THANK YOU!!
I have just received a treatment including my Reiki 3 practitioner training from Miriam and was wowed by the whole experience. At the start Miriam was highly intuitive about my energetic state which helped me to identify areas I needed to clear. I truly felt a shift and a deep sense of well-being after. Miriam is a highly gifted therapist and true professional.
The “Stress Buster Treatment / Workshop” with Miriam this week was superb. The course started with a good overview of what stress is and its effects, both good and bad, and continued with a hypno-reiki session to help me relax – I must admit, I did fall asleep here! 😀 – After that, I learned some quick and easy practical exercises that I have been able to do at home, first thing in the morning and then again in the evening. Doing the exercises has been a great way to start and end the day in a more positive and relaxed frame of mind!
STRESS – REIKI HEALING:
Thank you Miriam at Òptim, I had a lovely experience from start to finish with my Hypno-Reiki session, will definitely be back again!
SEEKING CLARITY & LIGHT – HYPNO–REIKI HEALING:
Had a fantastic Hypno-Reiki Treatment today with Miriam, walked away feeling refreshed and clear headed. 100% recommend.
PAIN – REFLEXOLOGY:
I have been using Miriam for reflexology. I have to admit I was very dubious when I started as to how effective it would be. However, I have noticed a difference each time I have had a session with her. Having a hamstring injury that can affect my Tae Kwon Do I was willing to give anything a try. The result has been amazing and eased off the pain allowing me to kick higher again. I would recommend anyone who is unsure to at least try and see what differences this can make to you too.
DIVERTICULITIS – REFLEXOLOGY:
The first point to note is that sitting back on the therapy couch and switching off for an hour and enjoying a foot massage from someone who knows what they are doing is, in itself, fantastic!
Miriam clearly understood my problem, exactly where the reflex points were that correspond to that part of my body causing me a problem (Diverticula) and she has helped me immeasurably. I am still feeling the benefits some weeks later.
LACK OF CONFIDENCE & SELF-ESTEEM – HYPNOTHERAPY:
Miriam has a gentle and relaxed manner, and a soothing voice to listen to. I felt safe and secure with her and throughout all my hypnotherapy sessions. It was a lovely feeling to “melt” into a state of total relaxation and allow my unconscious to come to the fore and help me to address the issues that had been bothering me. Since our sessions, I have so much more confidence in my abilities and recognise the core strengths that I have. In the past, I had self-esteem and self-belief issues, and these were holding me back from making some essential decisions in my life. I now recognise my own worth and I have been moving forward and steadily achieving my goals. Thank you!
I must admit I was unsure of the merits of Reiki & Reflexology, at first.
I doubted that such therapies could successfully assist me in easing pain & rediscovering ranges of movement that constant martial arts training had caused to become restricted.
That said, I was desperate to find natural, non-harmful & non-evasive solutions to these issues & so took the recommendation to try the holistic approach. A decision, I will never regret…one which quite simply transformed my quality of life.
Miriam, was exceptionally professional, dare I say ‘clinical’ in her approach. After consultation, a plan was put in place to treat my issues.
Even after having reservations, I soon found myself in an utterly relaxed state. It is a kind of relaxation that I had never known previously – one that for that alone, would have been worth the cost of the therapy.
That is only a small part of my level of satisfaction however.
Even after the first therapy I felt significant gains in my movement & reductions to my aches & pains.
Continued treatments have followed & I can only suggest that without these, I’d either have spent long periods inactive due to injury or that I’d be utterly hooked on prescription only strengthed painkillers by now & frustrated at the NHS’s hesitancy to provide, or, lack of available resources to treat my continued physical conditions.
I have been utterly convinced by the merits of holistic therapies & thanks to Òptim, I have found them to not only to provide positive physical gains but a very profoundly positive affect on my mind, my concentration & relaxation levels are much improved & even my overall outlook on life is more positive than it was before.
As a previously genuine cynic in regard of these therapies, I can only marvel at how wrong I actually was on that account, yet, how right my decision to schedule an appointment with Òptim turned out to be.
You have nothing to lose, as I said, the relaxation aspect of the therapies cannot be underestimated. Living in such stressful times, I think we can all agree that genuine relaxation is something we strive for & that we can’t put a price on…when in truth you can & it really doesn’t cost as much as you’d think either.
Òptim, I can’t recommend highly enough to anyone.
Massive thanks go out to Miriam at Òptim Holistic Therapies.
STRESS & SEEKING CLARITY IN LIFE – REIKI HEALING:
I’ve been a long time advocate of alternative therapies and with Miriam, I’ve always had great results from the therapies. I started having Reiki with Miriam and I loved it. It wasn’t only her skills as a therapist, but also for her belief in the potential of holistic therapies that made me feel at ease. I felt so great with her first session that, as you’d imagine, I returned for many more! When I was pregnant I went to have an Indian Head Massage and a Reiki therapy and you couldn’t imagine how relaxed it made me feel. To be honest, I felt really comfortable, and I’m sure my baby did too. I’m so looking forward to being in her hands again. I can recommend her 100%!
SEEKING CLARITY – REIKI HEALING:
Had my first ever Reiki treatment with Miriam a little while ago. It was lovely and relaxing and I learnt some interesting things about the treatment and more importantly, about me, during the process. It’s also lovely to have a therapist who is truly committed to what they are doing.
ANXIETY – HYPNOTHERAPY:
Placing myself in Miriam’s hands was a really gratifying experience. I went through a period of constant anxiety which left me feeling rather unbalanced and internally I was laden with built up tension.
Being in Miriam’s hands, provided me with a great sense of release. I felt my tension had dissipated, as if I had got both self-trust & respect back. I felt full of energy and reinvigorated.
If I’m honest, I didn’t really have faith in alternative therapies but I’ve since realised that we often reject methodologies which can truly help us reconnect with happiness and inner peace…which, for me, is the most important thing in life. Thank you Miriam for having made me feel so well during your sessions. A big hug!
I’d like to thank the therapist Miriam from Òptim for the great experience I had with her. I have improved so much through her reflexology treatments, which made me feel great after each session. I have also benefited so much from her Reiki treatments, thay have helped me regain inner peace and I feel so much balanced and calm after her Reiki. Thank you Miriam, for your great kindness and your professionalism, it is s blessing having you in my life.
STRESS & ANXIETY – REIKI HEALING:
After the Reiki treatment I had with Miriam I experienced a great sensation of wellbeing, inner peace, serenity and calm. It’s as if my usual stresses and nervous states had disappeared. It is a pity that I live so far away as I can’t come in for regular treatments, but I’m happy for those fortunate in Glasgow who can benefit from her treatments.
Had my first ever Reiki session with Miriam yesterday and it was an amazing experience. I was a little bit sceptical at first but I kept an open mind. She also gave me a very relaxing back massage too. I’d definitely recommend her treatments to anyone who’s thinking of giving them a try 🌝❤ xxx
The treatments Miriam has conducted on myself have been most beneficial and have provided me with such pain relief. I suffer from osteoarthritis and I get massive relief after reflexology sessions.
PLANTAR FASCIITIS – REFLEXOLOGY:
I approached Miriam to see if she could help with the discomfort I was experiencing from both feet which was causing me some distress. I had suffered from plantar fasciitis in the past and didn’t want to take medication for the pain. I felt that she really connected with me during the consultation and the treatment, as she genuinely wanted to help alleviate my symptoms.
She recommended some reflexology sessions to relieve the pain. I couldn’t believe how amazing the treatments made me feel, as the pain relief was almost instantaneous. Miriam’s method of applying pressure to specific parts of my feet was absolutely spot on and her attention to detail was so thorough and accurate. Using a combination of skill, soothing oils and pressure on troublesome areas, I felt a sense of relief and focus. I really couldn’t say enough good things about it and couldn’t wait for the next session.
Since I began receiving treatment from Miriam some of the benefits include, pain relief, improved sleep and a feeling of well- being. I had no idea that reflexology was so effective and wish I had sought it earlier. I found Miriam to be very professional with a real passion for what she does, she provides a very private, personal and peaceful environment and makes you feel at ease during her sessions. I highly recommend her services and continue to receive treatment from her on a regular basis.
FINDING CLARITY IN LIFE, CONFIDENCE & STRENGTH – HYPNOTHERAPY:
Miriam is a fantastic person who has helped me so much throughout our hypnotherapy sessions. She’s a great therapist, highly professional & her soothing manner puts you at ease. She manages to transport you and get rid of what’s wrong with you. It has been insightful and life changing for me. Thank you.
Have had brilliant Reiki and Indian head massage from Òptim. I have been suffering from bad back pain, and I felt relief instantly after the treatments. Pain can actually go! Will definitely come back for more!
STRESS – REIKI:
Been to see Miriam a few times and I always feel so relaxed when I leave. So professional and helps you out with whatever you’re looking for 😊
